If you work in a “cube farm”, you know it can be a pain in the neck. Research has linked sitting for long periods with a number of health concerns, including obesity, increased blood pressure, high blood sugar and abnormal cholesterol levels.Join Roberto Astorga on a class that addresses these issues common among people who work during the day behind the desk.

During this class, Roberto will address the following:
– Promote relaxation on your neck and shoulders.
– Strengthen and flex your back.
– Open and flex your hips.
– Stress reduction.

Taught by a certified Iyengar yoga teacher who also works on a cubicle during the day, this class will feature a simple, accessible yoga practice you can use at the end of the workweek.

Increasingly, our daily lives ask us to be more active, to multi-task, and to seek continual improvement.  To find a more peaceful state, we can choose to slow down, quiet our thoughts, and find contentment in the way things are.  In this series, we will explore restorative poses that allow the body, mind, and heart to rest in a state of quiet and peace.  Poses will be held for several minutes with the support of props and with little to no muscular effort.

lotus-smallerThe Art of Sequencing

Roberto Astorga
Saturday, December 1
1:00 pm – 3:30 pm
$40

Have you heard that Iyengar Yoga strongly recommends building a personal practice, but you do not know where to start?

The Art of Sequencing Workshop provides this fundamental guidance, allowing you to take your practice to new heights — and depths.

You will learn the ways in which Iyengar Yoga offers a framework for creating sequences that address your state of mind, physical stamina and limitations.

Students will have the opportunity to create their own sequence based on this formula and will go home with a deeper understanding of this fundamental practice.

Please remember that yoga has been around for thousands of years as a means to maintain the health of the body through the balancing of the systems and as a tool with which to deepen into self on one’s journey inward.
