August 18 2017: Friday 6:00-7:30 Slow Flow & Relaxation $35
This class will begin with 75 minutes of movement- a slow flow that builds into a vinyasa with modifications for beginners and amplifications for those with more experience.

August 19 2017: Saturday 11:00-1:00 Liquid Spine (Back-bends for everyone) $50
Join Irene for this workshop to bend, twist, fold, and strengthen your body so that you can free the movement of your spine. Beginning with a short discussion and meditation, you will be guided through Irene’s warm up sequence to break down different elements of spinal movement with a special focus on hip and shoulder flexibility. She will then show you her favorite drills for building spine strength and safely increasing your body’s range of motion. All levels welcome with an open mind. This is also a perfect workshop for instructors looking for safe ways to help their students build stronger, safer back-bends in their practice.
August 19 2017: Saturday 3:00-5:00 Foundations for Effortless Inversions $65
This workshop is focused on refining the foundation of effortless inversions in order to explore more advanced techniques. Irene will break down the stepping stones to a more graceful inversion and arm balance practice, starting with basic drills to build the strength and flexibility required to balance on your hands and upside down. Expect to focus on forearm stand and handstand- working on controlled entrances and exits. Don't worry, if you're not comfortable upside down Irene will give you steps to get there. All are welcome as long as you can do dolphin pose.

Beginning with pranayama and meditation, the majority of this class will be a dynamic vinyasa flow exploring the foundations of inversions and arm balances in a fun and playful way. Modifications will be offered for those in the beginning of their yoga journey and amplifications offered for more advanced practitioners. The last past of class will be for slower hip and hamstring opening, allowing you to relax and dissolve into restorative stretches. All levels welcome, but being familiar with basic poses will help you get the most out of this practice.
