The Pelvis - Strength and Stability

with Michelle Martone, PharmD and Ruchi Puri, MD FACOG

Saturday, MARCH 23, 2019

1:30 PM - 3:30 PM


Join doctors Michelle Martone, PharmD and Ruchi Puri, MD FACOG as they teach the healthy fundamentals of the pelvis through wisdom traditions, asanas, breath work, guided meditation and dialogue.

The pelvis is the anatomical home of our grounding, sense of stability and is where our reservoir of energy sits. It's time to discover the complexity of your pelvis and benefit from its untapped abundance.

You leave with

  • A better understanding of your natural structural alignment through your pelvic anatomy.
  • A conscious experience of the state of your pelvis and resources to keep it healthy and heal discomfort.
  • Awareness of how unconscious emotions and beliefs impact your body and the role of the pelvis in well-being.
  • Practical exercises for cultivating a sense of grounding, safety and power through pelvic self-awareness.
  • DEEP REST - Restorative Yoga, Qi Gong, & Acupuncture

    with Sinead Corrigan and Austin Gresham

    Sunday, MARCH 24, 2019

    2:00 PM - 4:00 PM


    Restorative yoga is a gentle method to relax the nervous system. It helps us “practice rest”—a skill many of us have forgotten.

    Qi Gong is a form of “moving meditation”, helping to transform stress and tension in a creative way.

    Acupuncture is an ancient therapeutic practice that continues to deliver its time-tested results in the modern world. Beyond empirical evidence, researchers have found that acupuncture activates the body-mind connection as points placed in traditional locations send signals to the brain that prompt a cascade of chemical messengers. The result? Pain relief via endogenous opioids and a nervous system switch to the parasympathetic, healing state.

    Join Sinead, yoga & Qi Gong Instructor, and Austin, acupuncturist & personal trainer, for this special 2-hr workshop that aims to help the body regain energy (“yang”) through deep, rejuvenative rest (“yin”).

    In this workshop we will move through a foundational Vinyasa Flow where specific areas will be highlighted so you can leave with an understanding of how backbends work for you.

    After establishing a stable base to build our backbends on we will be able to explore safe stabilization & breathing while considering additions to the shape and explore techniques around how those can appear.

    This workshop is ideal for the flexible yogi looking to stabilize and strengthen as well as for the advanced practitioner looking for new things to add into their practice.

    Core and Restore

    with Logan Coffin

    Saturday, May 5, 2019

    2:00 PM - 4:00 PM


    Join Logan and your fellow Yoga Mayu community for an afternoon of core work and restorative yoga.

    We’ll spend the beginning of class talking about what the core actually is. Contrary to popular belief, the core consists of much more that just abdominals.

    Then we’ll move into strengthening the core and learning various exercises we can do in class and at home. The last half of class will be spent restoring the body from all the work we just completed.

    We’ll use bolsters, blankets, blocks, sandbags, and eye pillows to settle into relaxing postures - allowing the body, and mind the much needed relaxation it deserves.

    Aroots wll levels are welcome!
