Pelvic Floor & More with Viki Boyko

Sunday July 1, 2018 @ 1 – 4 pm

The pelvis is such an important area of our body – our center of gravity, the home to our reproductive and elimination systems and a primary source of all of our movement. Incontinence, organ prolapse, prostate issues , back, knee and undiagnosable pelvic pains, pain during sex – these are stressful and affect our self esteem. Numbers are on the increase and they are problems that are no longer confined to the realm of the aging population. Most of us – even Yoga Teachers – don’t really have a clear picture of what is going on ‘down there’. When we take steps to understand our body and how it functions in every day life, we make changes for the better As well as discovering your habits and improving your function, this workshop will cover:
• Anatomy of the Pelvis
• Breathing and the pelvic floor
• Happy hip joints
• Your core – too much, too little? What IS your core and is it balanced?
• Better movement habits in your everyday activity
• Movement practice with pelvic floor specific exercises
Duration: 3 hours. Yoga Alliance approved non-contact CEUs.


Accessible Matwork with Blossom Leilani Crawford

August 4, 2018 @ 10 am – 1 pm ; $125 pp

The matwork is such a powerful Pilates tool precisely because it requires nothing more than a mat and offers a full-body workout after executing the 34 original exercises. However, in my own mat classes, I feel like I only have the opportunity to teach the same 20 exercises.

The matwork is how most people are introduced to the Pilates Method and in this three-hour workshop, we’ll conduct a matwork reboot. We’ll look at Mr. Pilates’ “Return to Life” matwork repertory and order with fresh eyes focusing on the lesser-known and, often, less executed half of the exercises. Together, we will examine the essence and purpose of each to help us find the accessible movements within. Breathe new life into your teaching with this invigorating workshop where you will have a chance to explore a familiar subject in a new way. Best of all, you will learn tools to teach the matwork (even the advanced repertory) to a majority of your clients regardless of their level. Come ready to move and play.


Trick Client Strategies with Blossom Leilani Crawford

August 4, 2018 @ 2 – 5 pm; $125 pp

We are all trained to teach people that can move easily. However, the majority of our clients have issues. I will take you through some of my bag of tricks for those clients that take a little extra thinking through. For instance, I have an 80 year old male client that has one leg that is 10 pounds heavier than the other. I want to share with you how I taught Pilates to a woman that had no
movement in her ankles. With a few simple tools and movement strategies, you can add to your bag of tools when working with those tricky clients. You can even share your client’s story or even a video of your client and I can help you trouble shoot.

Elastic Hearts with Tristan Gatto

Sunday August 26 @ 10 am – 12 pm, $50 pp

In this heart-opening master class, we dive into the fascial web to identify and discuss key areas of imbalance in the entire front body. The fascia is highly important as it encases the body’s many structures in order to maintain its natural shape. Over time, the fascia tends to mold to whatever shape it’s consistently placed in, resulting in imbalance. These imbalances result from our daily lifestyle patterns,: driving cars, working at desks, poor posture, and injury.

This practice is geared toward releasing a specific line of fascia called the superficial front line by incorporating simple self-assisted techniques that target the shins, quadriceps, hip flexors, and chest. In addition to these techniques, we incorporate a smooth but energetic asana to encourage balance, space, and strength into these tissues.

This is an ideal class for anyone who suffers from:
Chronic muscle tightness/stiffness in the quads, hip flexors, or pectorals (chest), Neck and Jaw tightness/TMJ, Poor Posture, High Stress, or Shin Splints.

ELASTIC HEARTS is also great for all yogis and athletes who want to cultivate tools to maintain their bodies before and after rigorous practice to prevent injury and improve flexibility.

4 Day Yoga Shred Immersion Certification with Sadie Nardini

September 27 – 30, 2018

Become one of the first yoga teachers to become certified in this lucrative and hugely popular new addition to your yoga or fitness classes.

The Yoga Shred™, created by Sadie, is a fresh blend of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and Yoga flow. HIIT gives students the cardio, muscle definition and tone, super-strength and calorie burn that yoga alone cannot. Yogis need this to truly be fit, and break through the plateaus in their poses!

Yet many existing HIIT moves/classes are badly aligned and too aggressive on the joints.

Sadie, a longtime anatomy and biomechanics expert, designed 50 all-new HIIT exercises, built with safer joint anatomy and less impact, many of which are based on yoga postures, to give all the results of HIIT in a way that fits seamlessly into your existing yoga and flow classes.

Add in the Yoga Shred™ to your classes, whenever you want, after this 4-Day Immersion, and double or triple your class sizes like others have who brought their students this incredible gift.

Plus–it’ll reshape and strengthen your own body too, in just minutes a day. Thanks Science!
