Yoga + Meditation for Dancers . Future dates TBA!
Yoga offers many tools to develop awareness in the body that empowers anyone to move with ease and confidence. I will show participants how select tools can be particularly beneficial to dancers to use for performance and rehearsal preparation, ensuring that they feel physically and mentally centered and present each time. In this workshop, I will discuss the health and performance benefits of a yoga and meditation practice, lead participants through short sequences that can be used for warm up, break down how to move through the practice most effectively for each individual, and teach participants how to use the breath as a guide through any movement. We will finish with a brief meditation practice that helps to clear the mental palate of anxieties, destructive thoughts, and distracting preoccupations so that you can be at your best when you dance! Appropriate for dancers with all levels of yoga practice, including none at all (newbies encouraged to join!).

You know that feeling of pure ease you have after a yoga class? Wouldn't you like to feel even a little bit of that, all the time? Bringing the Alexander Technique into your practice will give you further tools to feel at ease every minute of the day (sooner than you expect!). The Alexander Technique will help you identify how to tailor any yoga posture to suit your body and allow you to build the strength, mobility, and awareness to move efficiently in class and out. The benefits of your yoga practice will follow you into home and office more fully than you've ever experienced.
