Release & Restore w/ Adriana Adelé
In this 2 hour workshop, you will be guided in a practice that integrates self massage & self-myofascial release, breath work, and restorative yoga to guide you into a state of deep relaxation and energetic release. The first portion of class will consist of a short, intentional and accessible open levels flow and self myofascial release work on tennis balls or yoga tune up therapy balls to cultivate greater freedom in the body and a deepened mind-body connection.
With this enhanced mind-body connection, you will then be guided through simple and grounding breath work and restorative yoga where all poses are held passively while the body is fully supported by props to invite full release and deep rest by accessing the parasympathetic nervous system and the ‘relaxation response’. You will leave feeling connected, grounded, and rejuvenated. All levels are welcome!
Sunday, Aug 23, 4-6pm. $25 by 8/17, $35 after.
Roll It Out w/ Anisha Chirmule
Therapeutic self massage with tennis balls to help alleviate lingering tightness and stiffness.
Working from feet to head with tennis balls, this virtually guided practice will strive to leave you feeling more spacious and breath filled.
Sunday, Sept 13, 2-4pm. $25 by 9/6, $35 after.
Brand New Beginners Series w/ Katrina Atkin
Mondays, September 14 – October 5
Everyone who has ever done yoga had a first class at one time, and this series is the perfect place to take that first step. At Maha, we prioritize inner sensations over outer performance, with no expectations or demands.
With this in mind, Katrina will provide detailed, informative instruction on the same foundational poses that you’ll find in our weekly basics classes. You will be encouraged to move at your own pace, and modify poses to suit your body’s needs.
We will also tend to the more subtle aspects of ourselves, learning breath exercises to support the physical poses, and meditating to allow the subtle benefits of this ancient practice to settle within.
Take these physical, energetic, and philosophical lessons off the mat and allow them to enrich your life.
Mondays, Sept 14 – Oct 5, 5:30-6:30pm. Registration inclusive for full series. $87 by 9/7, $97 after.
