Journey to Headstand with Deborah Corsitto Sun, Feb 10, 2019 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Headstand is known as the king of yoga postures—with good reason. The many benefits of headstand are unmatched by any other single yoga pose. Headstand builds physical strength in the core and upper body, provides quiet and stillness for the mind, and affords a sense of groundedness, stability and joy to the spirit. But to get there, first we must overcome the common obstacles of fear and doubt and negative thinking.

If you’ve wanted to achieve a headstand but feel afraid or inadequate, this 90-minute judgment-free, expectation-free, step-by-step workshop is meant for you. You don’t need to jump into the deep end of headstand to get there.

There are small, measured steps to take that will help you break through your personal barriers, without breaking YOU, and Deb has been helping people learn those steps, with patience and gentle encouragement, for nine years. Now it’s your turn!

If you have questions or concerns, email Deb at deb@yogadeb.com. Enrollment is limited, so please sign up early!

Cost : $50

Early Bird Price: $40 if registered by 2/3/2019

Restore Your Core and Pelvic Floor Part 2 with Liz Simons Sat, Mar 9, 2019 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This workshop is designed for both the prenatal and postnatal population to learn about how to best prepare and rehabilitate your core and pelvic floor to optimize outcomes during both pregnancy and postpartum. Studies show that women who use their core correctly are 75% less likely to develop diastasis recti, or separation of the abdominal muscles that sustains beyond the perinatal period. You will learn how to both prevent, manage and repair diastasis recti as well as pelvic floor dysfunction related to pregnancy and postpartum including urinary and bowel incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and persistent low back pain.

Dr. Liz Simons received her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from New York University and a B.A. in Psychology from Williams College. For nearly a decade, Liz has specialized in the treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction, with a personal interest in the education and treatment of the pre and postnatal population. Liz is dedicated to changing the standard of care for women and bridging the gap by informing and educating women about their bodies so that they can feel strong and empowered. She is a local Port Washington mother of three boys.

Cost: $45, Early Bird $40 if Registered by 2/23/19

Weekend Workshop with Kofi Busia with Kofi Busia Next held on Sat, Apr 6, 2019 at 12:30 pm - 4:00 pm
This enrollment runs from Sat Apr 6, 2019 - Sun Apr 7, 2019
Kofi Busia is one of BKS Iyengar's earliest students and has been practicing and teaching in honor of his guru for over thirty years. His teaching reflects a deep knowledge of the body and of yoga philosophy, and he is well known for his creative adjustments and also his stories, which both entertain and enlighten, and which bring yoga into the real world.
 
Ayurvedic medicine sees ‘kshetra’ as the field of both the body and the world. One of these is the “where” in which all the “events” of our lives occur. Those are the fruits. We tend to give the easy ones a strong internal support. Although some of these are easy to deal with, others are not. As we plough this field, so do we hope to “improve” the lives we live. The ambu or fluidic criss-crossing of our actions, nerves and perceptions is the realization we must consider. We then hope that through “flesh” as the visible gateway that covers the interior, we can gradually come to know more of these waxings and wanings. We then hope to gain a clearer understanding of the thinking and feeling states we can often create for ourselves as asana. These bring the bija or seed within us into clearer focus. We will aim to find that clear mind and awareness of intentions that amplifies the seed we are given as our place in this world. We can then the more easily reconcile ourselves with our surroundings, and as we find our true place in the world. This is the reconciliation of kshetra, ambu, ritu and bija, or body, action, timing and intention.
 
We practice yoga to address anxiety, tension, physical pain, and health issues. But more and more in this modern world, emotional disturbances and spiritual obstacles disturb our peace of mind. They prevent us from living life to the full.
Asana, pranayama and the study of yoga and its philosophy teach us how to transform our physical, mental and emotional patterns. By deliberately focusing on those parts of the body, such as big toes, little toes, or collar bones that normally function unconsciously, we can stabilize bones and strengthen muscles and ligaments, creating a strong, steady body which will provide a sound foundation. In the face of conflict and challenge we can then connect with that deepest wisdom, release our greatest fears, and move beyond our limitations to act with courage, grace and compassion.
 
Price: $160 for the weekend or $85 either day.
Early bird special: 10% discount if you sign up before March 17th
