Move + Be Moved

 
Move + Be Moved Erica Blitz

This workshop will take you on a journey to evolve your practice and unlock your capacity to move and be moved. The offering of each session will be set with a clear intention of body, mind and heart, and flow through a targeted progression to move through basic, intermediate, advanced yoga poses (as well as modifications). Mantra, meditation, pranayama and partner work will also be offered to empower your practice.

Note: This is a level 2+ offering. Students should be able to kick up into Handstand at the wall. To see when this workshop is being offered, view our current schedule by clicking below. 

 

Positions + Transitions

 
Socks + Blocks Erica Blitz

With socks and blocks

Explore dynamic ways to move your body through various skills + drills designed to help you move with power and precision to evolve your practice. With creative variations on traditional movements and yoga poses, you will sweat + smile as a means to take your asanas into fuller expressions and to help you access some of the more challenging yoga poses.

With the intention of enhancing your strength, coordination, flexibility and mobility, this will be a fun and challenging workshop where you’re invited to explore and play with Sun Salutations along with various hip openers, inversions, backbends, arm balances, and more. We will cool down with gentle seated, supported and supine stretching to leave you with a sense of integration.

 

Note: Bring a pair of socks. This workshop is open to all levels of students willing to work and play hard. To see when this workshop is being offered, view our current schedule by clicking below. 

inquire + inspire

 
Light the Path Erica Blitz

Light the Path

This workshop will take you on a journey to evolve your practice and unlock your capacity to move and be moved. Our focus will be on cultivating stronger roots in the moment-to-moment unfolding of our life path. We will embody this concept by integrating movement and stillness to encourage an energetic cohesiveness throughout the entirety of your body and a refinement in the focus of your awareness.

In this vinyasa practice, we will move sweetly and precisely through different sequences that include a variety of balancing poses before you are guided into a seated practice of forward folds, hip openers, supine postures, pranayama and meditation.

 

Note: This is a level 2 workshop. It will be expected that students are able to kick up to the wall into Handstand on their own. All poses and sequences will be taught in stages. Every level of student will be supported and challenged! 

perspective

 
Perspective Workshop

 An Inversion Workshop

In this workshop, you will learn the anatomy and alignment necessary to harness your strength and set you up for success. We will explore preparatory sequences as well as modifications on how to safely and mindfully approach inversions so that they are fun and freeing instead of fearful. 

We will focus on learning and refining traditional inversions (and some fun variations!) of Headstand (Sirsasana), Shoulderstand (Salamba Sarvangasana), Handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana), and Forearm Stand (Pinchamayurasana). 

 

 

All levels may attend even if you have never done a handstand before; alternatives are always given. Even if you’ve never done a handstand since you were a kid, you will have an expression of these inversions by the end of this session.

Sacred Heart

 
Sacred Heart Workshop

Backbends are some of the most challenging and vulnerable of asanas, and even the more experienced students can feel intimidated by this group of postures: primarily because they mobilize our entire axis of support (the spine) while opening and exposing the heart and the front body.

Within the context of core integration and opening the shoulders and hips, we will:

-explore the fundamental principles (and misconceptions) of safe + strong backbends, in order to skillfully learn the art of releasing and unfurling the spine

 

-offer key insights to help transform backbends and create greater opening, deepened awareness, understanding and fuller progression into more advanced variations
-explore and experience the philosophical and spiritual aspects of backbend poses
-find confidence, grace and nourishment in your backbends by accessing the sacred power of your heart

stabilize your center

 
Stabilize your Center Workshop

awaken from within

We’ve all heard the numerous benefits of having a strong core, but for many of us, we end up strengthening just one small part (the abdominals) of what the core encompasses. Developing strength and awareness within your core sets the stage for greater depth, steadiness, and ease in your practice.

In this workshop, we will investigate the anatomy of the core to understand how to better utilize the power of core muscles - including the breath -  to access inner strength and confidence. With a focus on the physical and subtle components of core body strength and awareness, you will learn how to strengthen and integrate your core in creative, effective, lasting ways. After an exploration of the anatomy of the core and bandhas, we will move into an informed practice that focuses on abdominal skills and drills, inversions, twists and side-bends.

 

The beauty of understanding the core is that you will leave with knowledge that informs your practice so that you can build your practice in a functional and intelligent way that will help you access a deeper layer of strength that you may not know was there - both on and off the mat.

balanced being

 
Balanced Being Workshop

stability + tranquility

This will be a fun and challenging class where you will access the power of your breath, mind and body as you move through an inversion practice at the wall. You will weave the fluidity of your breath into the focus of your mind through inversions, strong standing postures, and arm balances before you are guided into a seated practice of forward folds, twists, supine postures, pranayama and mediation. Yogis should expect to work hard, learn a few things and more importantly, feel good and enjoy your practice.

Note: This is an intermediate workshop. It will be expected that students are able to kick up to the wall into Handstand on their own.
