Yogamala and Yoga Journal China present an online, all day convention for International Yoga Day

June 21: I kick off at 7:30 - 9:00 am (Beijing time), with Preparing for Pregnancy. I will teach in English, and it will be simultaneously translated into Mandarin. There will be many other international Senior teachers in the lineup.

The time before pregnancy is as important as pregnancy itself. During this period, yoga can improve the chances of conceiving, and help a woman's body cope with the demands of pregnancy and labor to come.

We will learn how a cyclically responsive menstrual practice helps optimize reproductive health, maximizes physical and mental wellbeing, and boosts fertility. I will teach poses that develop physical stability, improve hormonal balance, and make space in the pelvis.

The Chakras: Saturdays, July 9, 16 & 23

The Chakras: Ancient Vedic texts tell us that human life exists simultaneously 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) connected by nodes of psychic energy called chakra.

Saturday, July 9, 10:15–11:45 am:
Standings Poses: Proper stimulation of the first chakra, the 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, the Svadhisthana, which is associated with the testicles and ovaries, we will work to create space in the pelvic region.

Saturday, July 16, 10:15–11:45 am:
Back bends (supported and unsupported): To release stress, and to develop courage, stimulate the third and fourth chakras by practicing back-bends.

Saturday, July 23, 10:15–11:45 am:
Restorative Poses: Inversions (supported & unsupported) and Seated Forward Extensions: When the fifth chakra at the throat center, the Vishuddi, is properly awakened, diseases in the immune, endocrine, and neurological systems, and also the upper bronchials, are relieved.
