Don't Drop the Block-5.png

July 19, 2024 6pm

Don’t Drop the Block (unless you’re instructed to)! Props aren’t just for support. This fun and challenging class will showcase how utilizing yoga blocks can both deepen our awareness on our movement, by forcing us to slow down, and add intensity to the postures. We’ll strengthen our focus by using blocks as our Drishti and we’ll strengthen our muscles by balancing them on different parts of the body as we travel in and out of asanas. Plus, every time the block drops, (because inevitably it might!) we’ll get to train our mindfulness muscle, not letting the external circumstances affect how we internally feel. Every time it hits the ground, let it do so without care, just like a leaf.

kirtan-2 square.png

July 27, 2024 4pm

Kirtan is an Indian musical art form that includes the listeners in the form of call-and-response singing. Your leader, Marla, a second generation Indian-American who lives in Rochester, NY, will lead you through listening and warm up exercises so that you are comfortable participating. This is not a performance, but a yoga experience where you come into greater connection with your own voice and how you express yourself in the world. This is an excellent workshop for someone who would like to deeply connect to their voice, loves to sing, loves mantras, chanting, or is a yogi. When we chant in Sanskrit we connect to what the yogis heard deep in the Himalayas and eventually wrote in the Vedas. We don’t just understand it on an intellectual level, but on the level of personal experience.
