It IS SAID THAT ONLY CHANGE IS CONSTANT…

You may have heard the word on
the street and now it’s official!

OPAL YOGA has relocated to the

M3 complex in the IX building! 

We have relocated to the M3 complex in the IX building! 949 2nd St. SE Charlottesville, Va 22902

Here’s how to find us at IX: From the Brazos side of the building, follow  Opal & M3 signs down the corridor under the sculpture of the upside down guy on the roof. Go through the glass doors, behold the lovely fountain; we’re the first biz on the left! This move is truly exciting! Students will have access to a host of amenities in the M3 complex including a proper lobby, plenty of parking and seriously awesome showers!

The Art of Letting Go
with Adam Whiting

The words “Just Let Go” commonly fall from the lips of yoga teachers in studios around the world. But what does that actually mean and is it that easy? In this three hour workshop, we will combine modern science, ancient wisdom and intense asana to learn the skills and acquire the tools to truly release the dead weight that is holding us down and holding us back. Part discussion, part meditation and pranayama, and part asana, expect to learn skills that will help you break free from the gravitational pull of the past.
—Learn meditation techniques that assist in clearing past and current anchors weighing you down
Acquire tools to help assist the nervous system in times of stress
Use Asana and Movement to understand the neurophysiology of Trauma
Learn to harness the power of the breath to shift your energy

Sequencing with Purpose: A Workshop for Yoga Teachers
with Peach Friedman

Calling all yoga teachers! Refine and improve your sequencing methods to design yoga classes that work. This two-hour workshop will dive into multiple methods for sequencing that you can put to use whether you’re teaching Vinyasa or alignment-based classes. We’ll look at specific poses and groupings of poses, and use clear, organized maps to gain confidence and understanding for how to choose poses, and what order to put them in.

Teachers will receive 2 CEUs for this training

$35 ($30 by June 13)
$50 for both sessions

Handstands 101
with Adam Whiting

Let’s strip it down and focus our attention solely on standing on our hands. In this 3-hour workshop we will investigate a multitude of aspects that allow us to hold a safe and stable handstand.
The feet, the hips, the core, the shoulder girdle, the wrists and hands all play an important role in getting and staying upside down. We’ll open, strengthen and integrate through an intelligent flow of foundational poses to build the strength and body awareness needed to fly. We’ll then move towards wall-work, partner work, and ultimately to solo flight.

All levels are welcome and variations and modifications will be given to beginners and seasoned handstanders alike.
