Friday 6-8:30pm: Full Spectrum Life
Yoga mimics life. And life is full of ups and downs and twists and turns and the invitation to be your greatest self throughout. In this full spectrum sequence you will do a bit of everything; sun salutations, standing poses, forward bolds, back extensions, twists, inversions and meditation. You will build strength while you exercise the full range of mobility in your body. This class will feature step-by-step sequencing, clear instructions, attention to alignment and stages appropriate for all yogis of all levels.
Saturday 9am-12pm: Strong to the Core
Got core? This class will strengthen your deep core stabilizers as well as your more global core muscles as we circumambulate 360 degrees around your torso and pelvis with strengthening poses and drills. We begin with the pelvic floor and transverse abdominus, into supine core strengtheners and hip openers, boat pose and plank pose variations, inner thigh strengtheners, outer hip stabilizers, back strengthening poses and culminating arm balances. Your core will be slow cooked and your shoulders will get some bonus strengthening too! All levels; come ready to work hard and have fun.
Saturday 1:30-5pm: Teacher Session on Practical Yoga Philosophy
Yoga facilitates the theatre of mind, body and heart, giving us the opportunity to explore the analytic and creative sides of our brains. In this workshop we will navigate and study yoga philosophy, mythology and practical educational theory with a focus on applying this to yogic practices of asana, pranayama and contemplation/meditation. We will dive into the rigor of philosophical thought in the Bhagavad Gita (and elsewhere) and find practical ways for you to bring some of these larger concepts to your practices, as well as off the mat and into your life. The yoga tradition offers a wide and deep ocean of wisdom, filled with rigorous philosophical traditions, rich mythic narrative and symbolic iconography. We will explore these teachings in both their historical context, as well as how we, as modern yogis, may derive meaning from these ancient wisdom traditions. If you wish to dive into this ocean of wisdom and engage the teachings while practicing on the mat, these classes are for you. Our exploration will be entirely secular in nature; no belief required. This session will mix lecture, conversation, contemplation, meditation, journaling, pranayama and restorative/rejuvinatize asana practice.
Sunday 9am-12pm: Resiliency
Cultivate resiliency in your body and spirit in this workshop focusing on twists, side bending and back bending postures and actions. You will be deeply nourished as you bend with appropriate tensile strength, stabilize and mobilize your spine, pelvis and hips. We will focus on postures that extend the hips and spine, opening the front chain of the body and contracting the back. Through an in depth exploration of the balance of strength and mobility required in these regions, we will work intelligently to move safely through the fundamental backbends into intermediate backbends. This workshop will feature step-by-step sequencing, clear instructions, attention to alignment and stages appropriate for all yogis of all levels.
About Workshops with Noah Mazé
Noah teaches yoga workshops all over the world. This program is for dedicated yoga students who want to take some extra time to explore postures in a meaningful, refined, methodical way and learn practical strategies for building strength, flexibility and focus. Noah will provide the attention you need to help you achieve your personal goals in your physical yoga/asana practice.
Morning asana sessions tend to be upbeat, with an emphasis on standing postures, backbends, arm balances and/or vinyasa flow. We turn inward as the sun wanes to forward bends, inversions and restorative postures. Students can expect to leave this program with a deeper, more expansive practice, and know how best to grow your yoga practice in the context of her/his own limits and boundaries.
