Yogahour Breakdown series w/ Teagan (Center City)
Do you ever feel like yogahour classes are a little too fast to ask questions or master a certain pose?
Do you want to become a more skillful yoga practitioner?
Then this is the workshop for you!
In each Yogahour Breakdown workshop Teagan will break down a one-hour sequence over the course of 2 hours. We will refine and delve deeper into proper alignment. We will have time to work on the more challenging poses, including different ways to access them. And you will have time to ask questions.
The benefit of this format is that it offers you, the student, the opportunity to increase your knowledge of the yogahour poses and take your practice to a whole new level. Yogahour is an accessible, affordable, expertly taught flow class that offers clear and specific alignment instructions. It was founded by master teacher Darren Rhodes of Tucson, AZ and can now be found at yoga studios worldwide.

In 2014, Justicia gave herself a mission to attempt every pose on this yoga syllabus poster developed by Darren Rhodes. What was an initially daunting task became a great tool of self inquiry, and she learned that
1. Although of course not all the poses were doable, visiting them all in a weekend gave deep insight into practice,
2. It wasn’t nearly as tough as she thought it would be,
3. It was a whole lot of FUN!
In this urban retreat, explore the full range of asana together, moving towards all 400 poses in a supportive, fun way as community. Each of the weekend’s extended asana sessions will move towards challenging poses with reverence and expert instruction from Justicia, and a conversation shared among all. Expect strong practice and deep laughter.
Students are recommended to be able to push up to urdhva dhanurasana (full wheel) with straight arms, balance headstand in the middle of the room and be able to kick up to handstand at the wall unassisted. This retreat is not intended for anyone with active injuries or illness. If you don’t meet the prerequisites, but you know how to honor your boundaries, please come (for example, you need the wall for headstand). If you’re simply intimidated, register! This weekend will be accessible to all experienced yogis who know how to back off and play their edges with deep respect.
