WORKSHOPS

Special Focus Two Hour Workshop

 

Spring Clean Your Body with Connective Tissue Release

 

with Barbara Baccei

 

Date:
Sunday:  April 25, 2021

Times:
2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

This is an On-line, Interactive Workshop

Myofascia is the interconnected whole-body system of soft tissue (fascia) that wraps around all muscles and organs. Fascia helps maintain good posture, range of motion and flexibility, gives our bodies tremendous strength and helps us manage stress and injuries. Inevitably, we all acquire kinks or adhesions in the fascia that limit movements of muscle, restrict functioning and often cause pain at certain trigger points. After this year+ of sheltering in a more sedentary lifestyle, there’s an extra big load of that showing up in our bodies.

In this focused workshop, we will work along trigger points in the spine, shoulders and hips to explore and loosen myofascial restrictions. Experience release of long-held tensions and pains. Learn safe and effective self-massage techniques you can do on your own. We will conclude with gentle flow yoga to express our new capacity, then deep relaxation. Move with a renewed and healthier lease on life. Suitable for all levels of yoga practitioners, beginner to advanced.

Props required: yoga mat, 2 pinkie balls and a sock, 2 firm blocks (eg cork), 2 soft blocks, bolster, strap, 2 yoga blankets.

Barbara Baccei has followed a lifelong path integrating fitness, art and spiritual practice. She began practicing yoga in 1990, following earlier devotions to ballet, distance running and Japanese karate. She received a yoga teaching certification in 1997 in Denver, where she taught until relocating and continuing to teach in Pt. Richmond, CA. Barbara completed the 500-hour teacher training of the Berkeley Yoga Room, and now focuses on alignment based yoga. A lifelong adherent to Buddhist philosophy, she took up Zen practice and vows through Kyosho Valorie Beer.

Cost:  $35

Times:
Saturday 12:00 noon – 4:00 pm &

“The Essence of Practice” During this course of study, students will explore the central aspects of the 8 limbs of yoga as presented in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Particular attention will be placed on helping each person to develop the values and skills required to deepen in the practice. This involves practical applications of asana, pranayama, meditation and their philosophical underpinnings. 

Students and teachers from all yogic traditions will benefit from the opportunity to dedicate an extended and focused period of time to discover for themselves the value of yoga as a complete system of practice and living. All participants will commit to working together in a way that embodies the practice values needed to sustain a sincere, committed, open-minded inquiry in a supportive and compassionate environment

This program is especially well suited for students and teachers who have completed any prior Essence of Practice program at The Yoga Solution. Other students of yoga with interest in the following are encouraged to join the 2021 program:

• Deepening your experience and understanding of asana & pranayama
• Cultivating the spiritual dimension of yoga
• Establishing clarity, continuity, and a life affirming practice
• Developing skills for the practical application of yogic values and philosophy in everyday living

David Sirgany is an ardent practioner of Iyengar Yoga for thirty years, whose depth and passion for the subject shine forth brightly in his teaching. He has studied on numerous occasions directly with BKS Iyengar and his family in India, and teaches both nationally and internationally. Sirgany.blogspot.com
