upcoming workshops

Winter Recharge
January 28, 2018, 10–12pm Private Studio, Westfield, NJ

This 2 hour semi private workshop will recharge your upper body movement and restore your breath and body with a deep relaxation practice.  Specifically, we'll break the workshop into 2 parts. Part 1 will focus on neck, shoulder and thoracic spine strength and mobility and part 2 will be a calming restorative practice designed to down regulate the nervous system and leave you feeling grounded and invigorated. 

  • The neck and shoulders portion will focus on addressing areas of tension, tightness and discomfort through self massage, strength and motor control exercises. You'll leave with a mini tool box of tricks to use at home whenever you feel pain or discomfort creeping in.
  • Helping to relieve some tension in the upper body will set the stage for a deeply soothing restorative practice. We'll use props and breath work to unwind and reset. Each pose will be constructed to fit the unique shape of your body so that you can find a complete sense of relaxation.

Roll, Refresh, Restore: Winter Wellness
Sunday, February 11, 2018, 1–3pm Satsang Yoga Studio, Westfield, NJ

This self care workshop will focus on warming up our bodies from the cold winter weather. We tend to move less during the winter as a result of being indoors more frequently which can create a sense of stiffness, tension and general sluggishness. To combat this, we'll work on a self care practice to soothe and mobilize the neck, shoulders, arms and lower legs as well as practice some simple breath work to refresh and reinvigorate the entire body. Treat yourself to 2 hours of self massage and relaxation and leave with more energy and a greater sense of well being.
