Friday, February 10: The Chakras
Ancient Vedic texts tell us that human life simultaneously exists in two parallel dimensions: the physical body and the psychological, emotional, and mental bodies, or the subtle body. The subtle body is energy, while the physical body is mass, and they mutually affect each other. The subtle body consists of nadi (energy channels) which are connected by nodes (knots) of psychic energy called chakra.
10:00 am – 12:00 pm: Standing Poses: Proper stimulation of the first chakra, the root chakra: Muladhara, eases all lower extremity diseases, including those in the legs and feet. Hip openers: Similarly, in order to have access to the second chakra. This chakra governs your emotions, your creativity, sensitivity, sexuality, intimacy, emotional well-being, and self-expression.
1:00 – 3:00 pm: Back bends (supported and unsupported): To release stress, and to develop courage, stimulate the third and fourth chakras by practicing the back bends.
4:00 – 6:00 pm: Restorative Poses: Inversions (supported & unsupported) and Seated Forward Extensions: When the fifth chakra at the throat center, Vishudha, is properly awakened and balanced, diseases in the immune system, neurological system, throat and upper bronchial's are relieved. The sixth chakra, Ajna, located between the eyes, stimulates the pituitary gland. In addition, it boosts the immune system, enhances creative visualization, and is linked to the spiritual and soul bodies.
General level: open to all levels, and all students and methods of yoga. Come with an open mind, and be prepared to explore the Chakras via Iyengar Yoga!

Sunday, Feb 12: Women's Day
Bobby presents a yoga day devoted entirely to women approaching, or going through Menopause. Just as physical and psychological disturbances occur when menstruation begins, you have to face them again when it comes to an end. You will learn to navigate through these transitions with practices that calm the nerves and bring emotional balance, enhance the functioning of the endocrine system, and boost the immune system. We will also explore the challenges and rewards of the post-menopausal phase.
9:00 – 11:30 am
