Vital Foundation: Feet and Leg Power and Engagement

10am-1pm
A balanced posture starts with our foundation. But it’s literally the furthest thing from our minds. Weakness or tightness in our feet can cause strain that reverberates up the body. Strong feet and stable ankles provide both support and dynamics to our system both on and off the mat.

This workshop aims to strengthen and vitalize our feet with foundational postures. We’ll explore ‘micro-asanas’ that fortify our connection to our ankles, arches, and toes. Students will leave with a sense of both groundings and lift in their legs.

Root Understanding:Pelvic Floor Vitality and Support

2-5pm
The first chakra, called muladhara (root support) is our primary source of stability. A healthy muladhara asserts our right to exist. The name implies its importance: With it we can support ourselves and feel supported. We also require grounding: emotionally through a solid sense of self, and physically through our legs. If the root is stable, the chakras above can be stabilized.

This therapeutic workshop is designed to decompress the organs in the lower abdomen, acknowledge and release tension around the hips, and improve the health of the pelvic floor. Students learn discerning actions in the legs, allowing the pelvic floor to “breathe”. This workshop strengthens the core fascial line, which is the body’s central support and balancing line.

We will also examine the role of mula bandha (root lock) and its wise use to provide blood and lymph flow to the uro-genital region. This flow and detoxing is a boon to those who are at risk for prostate, uterine and bladder dysfunctions, and promotes a vibrancy in these crucial organs.
