Sequencing: Active Poses
Judith's complete philosophy on sequencing active classes. Including: why the effect of any pose is directly related to the pose that came before it and how a yoga class is like a wedding.
Reconnecting to Your Home Practice
An honest conversation about the challenges of consistent home practice, finding your way back onto the mat after a long break, and how to create a routine for success.
How Human of Me: Intro to Non-Violent Communication
Curious how to communicate more effectively? According to the principles of Non-Violent Communication it all begins with self empathy.
It's so easy to feel scattered during the less-structured summer days.
Our yoga practice can slip away from us amidst the disruption.
Even vacations can feel like work: planning, packing, traveling, organizing activities, negotiating the emotional landscape of extended time with family or friends.
Yet we long to escape.
We crave refuge.
We want to find a true shelter from the unrelenting storm of our unsettled mind.
Join Judith Hanson Lasater, Ph.d, PT and Lizzie Lasater in July for a live yoga event to remember the experience of refuge we have on our mat.
A recording will be available for 3 months.
We'll begin with a short talk to provide a theme for our practice.
Then we'll practice Active asana to help us intentionally ground ourselves in our tangible physical body before shifting to Restorative asana to help us reconnect with our singing soul.
Paradoxically, Active poses bring us into the body first so we can then more fully let go of the body, and its reservoir of stress, thus entering that delicious realm of deep Presence which we crave.
Practice with the recording today:
Prepare your physical space: dress warmly, bring an eye-cover and socks, plus all your props, pillows, blankets, and towels. And close the door.
Prepare your digital space: close all other programs on your device, turn off notifications, and put your phone on airplane mode.
And lastly, prepare your family/roommates to support your practice: let them know that two hours without interruption is a gift they can give you.
