Weeknight Workshop Series:
Gateway to Advanced Asana w/ Zhenja
In this 4-part series, Zhenja will guide you safely and systematically into gateway poses that open up a series of advanced asanas. In each workshop, you’ll learn skills that you can practice on your own to continue to unlock these poses.
Week 1: Advancing Inversions: Learn how to practice balancing independently in handstand, forearm stand, and headstand.
Week 2: Advancing Hip Openers and Arm Balances: Follow the path from bakasana to kukkutasana (this one’s in lotus!), one step at a time.
Week 3: Advancing Backbends: Learn to stabilize the most mobile part of your spine in order to unlock deepening backbends.
Week 4: Advancing Forward Bends and Twists: If you feel stuck and frustrated in seated poses, you’ll learn how to effectively open your hamstrings to make these more accessible. And if these poses come more easily to you, this workshop will challenge you to the quiet, intense, inner focus of forward bends.
Tuesdays 6-7:15pm, April 3, 10, 17 and 24. Registration is inclusive for all sessions. Series is capped at 16 students, with drop ins permitted only as space permits. $70 early bird, $80 day of.

Bring all your questions, and learn to align your body to not only feel better throughout your day, but also progress safely and intelligently in your asana practice.
This is truly an all levels experience, and is not asana-based. The exercises you’ll learn are accessible and repeatable. Attending all sessions is highly recommended, as it will help you see how the system of the body fits together and interacts. However, drop-ins for single sessions are permitted.
Testimonial: I am writing this email to say thank you. I was the guy who was hyper extending his knees and you gave me a way to track my feet and ankles in order to get rid of the pain in my hamstring. I can’t tell you how much better I feel. I have been working hard at following the example you gave me and the pain has been alleviated. I really can’t believe that with all of the teachers I have had, no one was able to pick up on what you saw so simply in one class. Thank you for taking to the time to work with me. -Rob Neddoff
