The light from the sun into the leaves of a plant, into the cells of our bodies, creates life. Our community at Ekah Yoga plans to bring plant life in the form of herbs and edible vegetables, to eat, to share, to spring forth educational opportunities. Please join us for a Gardening Prep day to help weed, and clean up the our mandala inspired herb garden in preparation for Earth Day.
All who garden or bring an herb to plant will receive a free 1 hour class pass for helping our community grow! Wear clothes you can get dirty. We will provide gardening tools and gloves but bring extra if you have them.
Mark your calendar for Earth Day Potluck & Gardening on April 22.

This form of Taoist yoga is a slow, relaxed practice holding simple floor postures for three to five minutes at a time with muscles relaxed. It is the ideal complement for more dynamic or “Yang” forms of yoga that emphasize muscles and movement. This style of practice is not only therapeutic for the body, it also allows for a calming of the mind and spirit, and a balancing of the energetic system. It is a perfect end to a day, putting the practitioner in just the right place to crawl slowly home and sleep soundly.

9-10am: Intro to Taoist Yoga Class
What is Taoist Yoga? Yin Yoga is one half of a Taoist Yoga practice. Based on Eastern systems of medicine and energy work, this class is the ideal blend of yin and yang, sure to inspire and balance any practice. Yang refers to strong dynamic and fluid movement sequences to challenge the muscular tissues of the body, mobilizing the energy and lifting the spirit. Taoist yoga practice will also include passive, relaxed Yin floor poses for deep tissue stretching, and time for relaxation and meditation. Expect a radically different perspective and practice.
1:30-3:30p: A Functional Intro to Skeletal Anatomy
Intros and brief overview of the full weekend
Functional and Aesthetic approaches
Functional levels of analysis
Basic skeletal anatomy
Segments and Movements
Empower your practice from the inside out. Rather than a focus on a universal, aesthetic alignment, a functional approach focuses on what we feel in the posture. What are we exercising and why? Individual alignment may be as unique as your fingerprint, this is due to your uniquely shaped joints and skeleton. Learn the bones basics and their movements with ease. Simplify 208 Bones to 14 Skeletal Segments. This workshop will enhance body awareness in your asana practice, and broaden the scope of teaching postures and variations. A great study for serious practitioners to take a deeper look, and necessary for yoga teachers of any style.
4:00-8:00pm: Bare Bones
Assessing limitations in movement
Hands-on Range-of-Motion testing
Functional analysis of postures
Through hands-on testing we will learn to assess yoga postures, exploring the impact of natural differences in our bones. Within our workshop group we will see an incredible variation of participants’ skeletons and experiences of yoga postures. Understand the way the body moves through yoga postures by developing your X-ray vision to see the body as skeletal segments.
