WORKSHOP OFFERINGS

SACRED GEOMETRY VINYASA, MEDITATION & MOVEMENT

Sacred Geometry Vinyasa
Use your proportions to unlock your potential; an invigorating and complete Vinyasa practice guided by self-mapping techniques that soften the edges between different styles of Yoga with a broader paradigm of self-knowledge. Develop an integrated perspective on how to move energy through yourself rather than simply practice one posture in a vacuum, learn the Sacred Geometry Sun Salutation, and enjoy a sequence that is as sustainable as it is dynamic. For any student with an eye for detail and any teacher who remains a student, this is a practice that will serve you in any other practice you do.

Sacred Geometry Backbending: The Arc of the Future
Learn to use your own proportions to chart a course through every posture on a journey from effort to grace. An intelligent backbending practice rises, ripens, and settles for an enriching buzz of opening the front (your lungs) to the future without waking up the next day still stuck in the past (lower back pain)

Sacred Geometry Hips, Folds & Freedom: Polish the Past
Cobwebs gather in corners! Learn to use your edges to unlock your center, make clean physical folds, and clear out the clutter. The full volume of every posture is an ongoing exploration that requires technique that’s more refined than simply stretching. Up your awareness and make flexibility functional again!  

Sacred Geometry Vinyasa Workshop: Archetypes Unlocked
Use your proportions to unlock your potential; learn self-mapping techniques for sustainable and invigorating practice that soften the edges between different styles of Yoga with a broader paradigm of self-knowledge. Develop an integrated perspective on how to move energy through yourself rather than simply do one posture in a vacuum. The world is going binary — it’s up to you to see the whole picture. For any student with an eye for detail and any teacher who remains a student, this is a practice that will serve you in any other practice you do.

Sacred Geometry: Framing Space 
Learn you to use the wall as a second mat to up-level your awareness, unlock hard-to-reach spots in your body and find freedom in joint spaces. The power of yoga is the expression of your potential in a hectic world, so join Benjamin to use your edges as a compass on the journey to center. This workshop is a complete practice with inversions, backbends, twists, and folds presented in a unique format to enrich the advanced practitioner/teacher and provide fundamental tools for the beginner.

Movement and Conditioning Class
Focused, interactive, and fun, this practice develops awareness of the spine and body in space. Precise movements are isolated, then playfully integrated to improve flexibility, strength, coordination, and make adults smile like kids.

Mobility and Strength
Focused strength training makes flexibility functional, improves Yoga postures and helps prevent injury. No gimmicks here, this workshop teaches simple ways to develop a balanced, mobile, coordinated, and toned body. Elevate your exercise and hit all the spots.

Handstands & Mobility Level 1
It helps to have a plan. Simple protocols for all levels - make the process joyful and safe, and efficient. Includes functional core, lower body and shoulder mobility drills as well as wrist care. Not to be missed by eager beginners or instructors looking to up their teaching skills.  

Arm Balances
Progress requires protocols and the joy of gravity surfing is the byproduct of practice, which means more than doing something over and over. Repetition has the potential do both good and harm. This workshop is about establishing patterns that make the time you spend on your hands a good investment.

Sadhana: Breathing & Meditation

Practice will conclude with deep relaxation and a powerful journaling exercise. Rewrite the now and feel refreshed from the inside. (Bring a pen, paper and a yoga block.) 

Movement Awareness

Hot Higher Education (Intermediate Class)
A unique series born of the therapeutic principles of the beginning class.

In other words, concepts and balance are primary and poses remain the tools to those ends. This is a complete class for all practitioners rather than merely advanced with some hard stuff removed. You can call it Intermediate class if you must.
