Sweet Psoas Release
Saturday, March 13th, 3-5pm

In these unprecedented times, we are feeling all the shades of stress as we face so much change and uncertainty. The ilio-psoas muscle is one of the places we hold our deepest tension. When bound or imbalanced, we literally can not breathe fully enough, and this constriction disconnects us from life’s deepest support.

In this workshop, learn this muscle’s story from anatomy to energy, and how best to care for it through alignment – how to balance, strengthen, and unravel it effectively, and how to bring this awareness back into your regular practice. To release the psoas is to bring clearing, grounding, and opening to your body and energy flow, your mind and heart; and through this, to be able to trust more deeply in the flow of life as we navigate these challenging circumstances.

Though yoga can’t solve our problems directly, it can certainly support us in clearing physical and emotional tension, and to tangibly reconnect to – and therefore trust more deeply – the flow of life!

All levels welcome, for yoga students and teachers alike. Limited spaces for in studio. Online option available (registration opening soon).

Part 2! Evolving Beyond the Yoga Sutras: The Tantric Householder Path

As requested! Take a deeper dive from where we began in Gina’s first mind-blowing, heart-opening lecture about the Shaiva-Shakta Tantric lineage. We’ll review the concepts from Part 1, and explore and expand in deeper detail. Having attended Part 1 is not required.

Classical Yoga philosophy describes a path of separation and stillness, a freedom that is apart from life, which requires renunciation and detachment to achieve. Modern lovers of yoga seeking to ground themselves in its philosophy may rightfully balk at this injunction to turn away from worldly life. Evolving at the same time though in the Indian stream was Tantric Yoga, a path of practice and spirituality of radical unity, dynamic aliveness, and embodied liberation for those engaged in the world. Though this path was lost in the flow of time, it is making a resurgence, and offers a perspective that is more accessible, and still as transformational, to the modern, householder practitioner, for whom renunciation is neither possible or desired.
Together we’ll explore the teachings of freedom of the Shaiva-Shakta school of Tantra, which picks up where the Classical Yoga Sutras leave off, with an overview of its vision and an introduction to its root text – the Shiva Sutras. Here we find an evolved perspective, an expansive view of grace, freedom, and knowledge, and the astonishment of the embodied, integrated yogic journey. Interestingly, it is Tantra, not Classical Yoga, that is the tradition from which modern hatha yoga evolves. How wonderful and important to reclaim the philosophy that supports rather than denies worldly engagement – and not only that, facilitates individual refinement and fulfillment in the process!
