WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS

Saturday July 29th:  

Fundamentals - 3 hours   10am-1pm   $55

In this workshop, Dana will break down the vinyasa movement that you see in sun salutations and in most yoga classes. She will offer modifications for each step of the way, tips for different bodies, and show you how to tailor your vinyasa to your personal practice. Focus will be on controlled movements, alignment, and connecting shapes. This workshop is suitable for total beginners and intermediate students looking for a different perspective. Many well-seasoned students come and learn something new. This is the perfect workshop for those who practice at home or in a studio and want a chance to evolve their personal practice in a more in-depth way, with further attention to detail. 

Inclusive Practice (for teachers) - 2 hours  3pm-5pm  $50

 A workshop exclusively for yoga teachers. This is open to all teachers looking for ways to create a more inclusive class environment. Dana will share her experience as both a student and teacher in a larger body and different approaches to working with a variety of bodies. She will cover some of her favorite modifications or prop assists, and will address inclusive language and being mindful and conscious of what we say as teachers. Appropriate for anybody with an open mind, looking for a different perspective, or seeking to foster a more inclusive environment. This workshop also functions as a Q+A with Dana, so feel free to bring the questions you might not know who/how to ask about teaching larger bodies, body image, etc. and get some honest answers in open dialogue. We will discuss intention, authenticity, and more.
