Joint and Fascial Tissue Therapeutics
with Tucker Shelton E-RYT 500, YACEP

Based on the Brazilian system of Kaiut Yoga, this two-hour master class will unwind chronic adhesions in the connective tissue and help to strengthen and unlock the major joints of the body. This practice is composed of restful, supported Yin postures combined with finely directed micro engagements that together trigger a release of scar tissue and promote healing. Working from the feet up to the neck, participants will experience profound, regenerative effects in their whole mind-body system. Come lavish and fortify yourself in the wisdom of this burgeoning school of practice. All levels and bodies welcome—this therapy is for all!

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

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.
