Fundamentals Of Yoga:

A Four Workshop Series

Dates:

February 16th

March 2nd, 9th and 23rd

3:30pm-5:00pm


You can purchase the Workshops separately or buy all four and save some money. 


February 16th: How to Breathe

I cannot tell you how many beginners have told me after a class, "I feel like I am getting the poses but I am having a hard time breathing." Breathing when your just chillin is pretty simple but breathing while moving is much harder. Each pose has a direction of breath that will both make the pose easier to maneuver as well as make the pose work in your body. There are a lot of people who struggle with holding their breath, even people who have been practicing for quite a while, there are some helpful ways to learn to control this breath and use it to your fullest ability. Mind body BREATH connection is what sets yoga apart from many other forms of exercise. Not only will we go over how to breathe while practicing, we will also go over your energy locks and some fun breathing exercises that will help with stress, anxiety, depression, energy and so much more.


March 2nd: How to Vinyasa

"Exhale Chaturunga, Inhale Urdhva Mukha Svanasana Exhale Adho Mukha Svanasana...."

What now?! 

The list of what is challenging for a person who is new to yoga is long. However, these three poses : Half plank, upward facing dog and downward facing dog are up there with the hardest. Even yogis with years of practice can still struggle with this quick transition that is peppered into many yoga classes. These are up there with three poses that if you do them incorrectly it can cause quite a bit of damage to the shoulders and spine, so it is best to stop and learn how to do it correctly.

In this workshop I will give you all my knowledge, helpful hints and modifications so you can learn this transition safely and easily. 


March 9th: How to do top 10 YogaPoses

There are ten basic poses that if you know them, you can feel pretty comfortable jumping into just about any class. Here I will teach you how to find proper alignment in your body for each of these poses. I will also teach you modifications for these poses so that you can find a comfortable place to be in the pose today in your body. We will focus on the first two warriors, Triangle and Revolved Triangle, High and Low Lunges, Forward Fold, Chair pose, Cobra and Plank.


March 23rd: How to Balance

In every move on the yoga mat there is balance. Maybe you are balancing on one foot or two, perhaps balancing your breath and movement, balancing the weight evenly on your feet (harder than it sounds). Yoga teaches a lot about life off the yoga mat and the lesson in balance is key. Balance is not a thing you can collect after say 10 yoga classes and you just have it forever. Balance is constant work or letting go and holding on. Balance is giving into gravity while fighting it. However, the more your practice it, the easier it is to find it again! In this workshop we will try out some very basic balancing poses, some will be on our feet, hands, knees, and maybe even head (supported, don't fear).This will be the last class in the series, so we will end this workshop with a bit of Yoga nidra, or Yoga rest, because this is vital in finding balance!

Jesselle Peña
Owner

Jesselle learned her first asanas from her mother—a bona fide Humboldt County hippie—and began to delve into her own practice when diagnosed with scoliosis as a teenager. Drawn to health and healing from an early age, she studied nursing before completing a 200 hour certification program at The Yoga Shack with Tommy and Lori Anderson. Her training gave her a firm grounding in the science of yoga while still embracing the softer spiritual side. She now strives to give this balance to others and help them along their own path of health and wellness. Her teaching style is colored by her playful energy and her belief that yoga is for everyone.

Stacie Reeve
Instructor

Stacie tried yoga with the intention of improving her flexibility after years of swimming, biking and running. The more she practiced yoga asanas the more she found freedom in her hamstrings, hips, and shoulders — and most importantly, in her life. She embraced the opportunity to live with the flow of ever-changing currents, to pause and breathe, and to see with the vision of friendliness. Stacie received her 500 hour teacher training from YogaWorks in Santa Monica in 2008 and continues to build her practice on that foundation. Every day she learns from her teachers, students, family and friends and, at the same time, has lots of fun, too.

 

Niccola Nelson
Instructor

Niccola is a student and teacher of the Ashtanga Yoga method as taught to her by the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. She has been studying and practicing in this tradition since 2004 and is excited to bring her love of Ashtanga to the California Central Coast. Niccola is a passionate teacher who approaches yoga in a fun, unique and non-competitive way. She firmly believes in the benefits of a committed, daily yoga practice and hopes to inspire you to find your own path.


Ryah Cooley
Instructor

Ryah first fell in love with yoga while taking Jeff Porter's invigorating vinyasa classes years ago in San Luis Obispo. As a writer and constant questioner, she welcomes the calm and quiet that yoga brings into her life and seeks to help her students turn off that nagging little voice inside their heads. Ryah has a movement background in gymnastics and aerial dance. She completed her yoga teacher training at Harmony House with Kelly Metcalf in 2015.

Luana Knowlton 
INSTRUCTOR

Luana literally fell into yoga when she injuring her knee and shoulder – and her pride. As she struggled to come to terms with her body, an inner voice whispered “YOGA”. Within six months, she lost weight, gained muscle and found flexibility and balance. Luana’s upbeat personality, calming presence, and kindness will encourage you to listen to the subtle messages of your body to safely work the edges of your strength, flexibility, and energy while deepening your sense of peace and balance. Her classes are suitable for practitioners of all levels, providing detailed instruction and modifications where needed.
