[Live Streamed] Balance 101: A Virtual Pilates + Yoga Workshop for Happier Hips
Nov 1, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm| $35 – $90
Hip-focused Pilates + Yoga Intensive
with Tricia, STOTT Pilates Trained Instructor, and Margo, E-RYT 500
Stay-at-Home and work-at-home leaving your hips and legs unhappy? Looking for ideas about simple workouts you can easily do at home to help improve your balance?
If you are feeling chronic pain, weakness, or tightness in your hips or legs… feel like the balance poses in yoga seem totally illusive… have trouble engaging your gluteals and core muscles – or knowing if they are even engaged! – during workouts or yoga, then join Trish and Margo for this unique on-line Pilates + yoga workshop!
Spend the afternoon:
– learning about functional anatomy and muscle engagement for happy hips and good balance and how the gluteals and core support that, and
– learn simple, do-at-home routines for strengthening and stretching “the right muscles” with a unique workout that incorporates Pilates and yoga.
Date &Time: Nov. 1st, 2020 @12pm – 3pm
No prior Pilates or yoga experience required.
Cost: $35 (Discount available when booking all three fall Virtual Pilates + Yoga Workshops together by purchasing $90 All Fall Virtual Pilates + Yoga Workshop Pass)

What to Expect in Class: 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 cues are given – allowing more time to incorporate more pranayama, meditation and yoga philosophy into these practices. And her Yoga Nidra classes typically begin with gentle, restorative yoga followed by guided meditation in supported Savasana.
