balance 101-Longevita Pilates and Yoga Studio

An anatomy-focused intensive for stability and balance

Do the balance poses in yoga seem totally illusive and unstable to you? Feeling chronic pain, weakness, or tightness in your hips or legs? Having trouble engaging your gluteals and core muscles – or knowing if they are even engaged!? – during workouts or yoga? Looking for ideas about simple workouts you can do to keep improve your balance and stability?

Spend the afternoon:

– learning about functional anatomy and muscle engagement for happy hips, stability, and good balance – and how the gluteals and core support that,

– strengthening and stretching “the right muscles” with a unique workout that incorporates TRX and yoga, and

– taking time to look closely at your posture and movement patterns to discern how to improve your balance and keep your hips happier.

No prior TRX or yoga experience required.

Date: Sunday, Sep. 8th, 2019 @12:30-2:30pm

About the instructors: Margo Peña and Tricia Winters

Margo PeñaMost Recent Training: Anatomy-based Yoga Teaching Methodology with Julie Gudmestad, and Essential Yoga Therapy 500-hour Advanced Teacher Training with Robin Rothenberg

What to Expect in Class: Sequences of poses are typically repeated for several weeks to build strength and familiarity in those poses over time, but expect plenty of opportunities to adapt the poses for either more or less intensity to create a unique experience every week. New areas of focus, techniques, or themes will be introduced weekly to layer more depth progressively in each practice. And all is done with a noncompetitive, light-hearted approach so you can enjoy the journey just as much as actually getting to the destination.

Margo’s Yoga Fundamentals classes are often mini workshop-like practices intended to build muscular endurance and offer opportunities to explore different variations of poses. Her flow-style classes are typically slowflow, focussing on strong, steady transitions with progressively building sequences, that often borrow tremendously from the Ashtanga tradition’s primary series. Margo’s Intermediate Level classes are designed for those already familiar with asana alignment and variations, so fewer alignment queues are given – allowing more time to incorporate more pranayama, meditation and yoga philosophy into these practices.
