[Live Streamed] Body and Breath Online Workshop with Joanna Dunn & Debra Lerman
June 27 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm| $45 – $55
co-taught with Debra Lerman, Physical Therapist and Feldenkrais® Practitioner
Our breath is as individual as our signature.
Our breath is intimately connected with our consciousness.
Where there is freedom of breath, there is ease and harmony of thought and action.
Using the combined practices of Feldenkrais Awareness through Movement® (Somatics), restorative yoga and yogic pranayama, we will journey into the quiet space of the breath to free the mind and heart.
We begin our exploration with an overview of the anatomy and kinesiology of the breath visualizing and informing our experience of our breath. Debra Lerman will guide a 30-45 minute gentle movement series bringing awareness to and creating freedom in the physical aspects of breath. In the latter half of the workshop we combine restorative yoga and guided yogic pranayama (breath consciousness) learning to rest deeply in our breath. We will close with an open discussion, answering any of your questions.
Date & Time: June 27th, 2020 @ 3pm – 5pm
Cost: $45 early bird (by June 20)/$55 after
All workshop participants will receive $15 off on the four-week breath intensive with Joanna starting June 15.

About the instructors: Joanna Dunn & Debra Lerman
A yoga teacher since 2001, Joanna’s background is eclectic. She teaches a variety of styles, including beginner level alignment, a Level 2 slow paced Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative as well as somatic movement and meditation. Her teaching is influenced by Iyengar-based teachers, Judith Lasater (Restorative yoga), Kathryn Payne (Pranayama) and Theresa Elliott (alignment, sequencing, and Vinyasa). Her primary influences from her early studies also include choreographed multidimensional vinyasa of Lynn Kingston and the accessible, gentle yoga of Kripalu. Joanna is currently studying with Tias and Surya Little of Prajna Yoga. Prajna fuses traditional yoga practices (Ashtanga and Iyengar) with the energy body wisdom of yoga and Chinese Medicine, Meditation of Buddhism and somatic movement of Feldenkrais and Hanna.
I bring all that I know to my work: My early years as a dancer and massage therapist, 40+ years of experience with moving bodies of all shapes and ages, my 30 years as a physical therapist, and my 20 years of teaching the Feldenkrais work, in order to help people find comfort, ease, and power in simple human functions. How we use our bodies and ourselves is the physical picture of our level of well-being and potency. The organization or our skeleton and muscles are as individual as our height, the length and tonus of our muscles, and our history.
