Restorative Yoga, Sunday 4/29 6:00-7:30pm at Mindful Turtle Yoga & Wellness This workshop will incorporate a restorative yoga practice, guided relaxation, meditation and visualization as well as the use of essential oils to facilitate a calming and healing experience. A relaxed series of seated and reclined postures will be included and postures will be held 5-10 minutes with the use of props. A yin yoga practice can be used to complement to an active yang practice, emphasizing long holds in asana (postures), so that the positions can work on the connective tissues (ligaments, tendons, and fascia), increasing circulation and promoting healing. This practice has a balancing effect on the autonomic nervous system, influencing healthy heart rate, digestion, respiration, and more. $30, please pre-register with Mindful Turtle.
Hips & Twists, Sunday 5/20 11:30am-1:30pm at Mindful Turtle Yoga & Wellness Join Jackie for an exploration of the anatomy of the hips and pelvic girdle and how to apply this knowledge to your yoga practice and everyday movements to find greater mobility, stability, health, and ease. Learn how anterior and posterior tilting of the pelvis affects the alignment of your spine and how flexion, extension, and rotation of the hips affects the health of your feet, ankles, knees, and legs. This workshop will provide an opportunity to look at how your yoga practice can be used as physical therapy in the case of knee instability or injury, sacroiliac joint pain, sciatica, conditions in the lumbar spine, and more, and will include techniques for increasing your flexibility and strength in the hips and pelvis. In addition to working with the flexibility of the hips, we will explore the rotation of the spine via twisting postures, both standing and seated. $30, please pre-register with Mindful Turtle.
Ashtanga Yoga, Tristhana, Vinyasa, Pranayama, Bandhas, Drishti, Dhyana, Intensive Course, Sunday 5/27 11:30-3:30pm in Mount Sinai This semi-private intensive course is designed for practitioners looking to deepen their practice, further their studies of yoga, and learn how to to view situations in one's own life through the lens of this ancient system of wisdom and healing. Material will also be valuable for those looking to teach. In an intimate setting of 3-5 students, we will dissect the layers of Ashtanga Yoga (the eight limbs of yoga), with a detailed exploration and explanation behind yama (interpersonal moral codes of conduct) and niyama (personal ethical observances). We will also study the application of tristhana (the three pillars of our physical asana practice), the inner workings of vinyasa (breath-synchronized movement), pranayama (breathing technique), bandhas (energetic locks or binds), drishti (gazing point), and dhyana (meditation) and how all of these affect not only the physical body but also the mind, and promote purification, clarity, balance, and harmony. Class requires pre-registration including advanced payment and will take place at Jackie’s residence in Mount Sinai. $200, discount offered for those currently teaching 2+ yoga classes weekly (pay at bottom of page)
Shoulders & Backbends, Sunday 6/3 11:30am-1:30pm at Mindful Turtle Yoga & Wellness Join Jackie for an exploration of the anatomy of the shoulder girdle and how we can discover healthy internal and external rotation in our yoga postures and in everyday movements. Absolutely a must if you have or have had pain or discomfort in the shoulder, elbow, arm, wrist, and even the upper back and neck as imbalanced shoulder movements and positioning could be the cause of strain and pain, and could even result in larger chronic conditions such as cervical spine herniations, cervical stenosis, nerve entrapment and impingement in the arms, and chronic headaches! After breaking down healthy rotation in the shoulders, we will explore spinal extension in the form of backbending postures. Learn how to work with your shoulders regardless of your flexibility or strength. $30, please pre-register with Mindful Turtle.
