Root Connection: Yoga & Rolfing for Self-Care
Sunday, July 9th @ Vessel Academy (Manhattan)
The asana portion of this class combines a faster-paced warm-up followed by deeper long holds. Release myofascial tension, decompress the joints and calm your nervous system. These classes seek to balance the energetic pathways called meridians, through which your emotions flow. You will learn about the meridians' physical pathways in the body plus their associated emotions.
Rolfing is a form of bodywork involving myofasical manipulation to align the body optimally in gravity. It makes an excellent complement to Yin Yoga. In this semi-private workshop you will have the opportunity to experience this work, along with some acupressure points, through short individualized treatments while you hold the poses. Think of it like a really effective adjustment from the teacher. The Rolfing work will aid you in the poses, remap “dark” areas of the body, and release unnecessary tension.
Part 1- November 18th // The Deep Front Body
[backward bending, worry/confidence, psoas and stomach/spleen meridians]
Part 2- December 2nd // The Deep Back Body

Exchange // $35 for one class or $60 for both
