A Salon Style event of talks and performances serving as a window for the community to see into the ideas, projects and art that is taking place at YMS while also working as a fundraiser for future growth and more in depth offerings. As such, in addition to talks and performances we will be holding a silent auction, serving refreshments and accepting donations during a meet and greet directly following. We encourage everyone to stay for the entire evening and enjoy the warmth of the YMS community.
Our bodies hold the stories of our lives. Every memory, every joy, every heartache, every look of longing sinks into the maps of our movement. So we move to unpack the weight of these stories. To shake them free from the container of our body so we can hold nothing in our hearts. So our hearts can be open and as vast as the sky. As we move in this workshop we will work through the weight of our past and come to a place where we can simply embrace the space. We will begin with a more codified yoga flow, and then move from the mats. We will progress through floor work, through dynamic pranayama, through sound expression, and find a crescendo in free form movement. This practice is for anyone and everyone, it is a therapeutic way to find the center of your heart. In this movement we trace back the thread to all things that make you feel alive.
Investment: $25 ($5 discount for YMS Tribe Members)

A multi-disciplinary, dynamic approach to Vinyasa Yoga
Anatomy: East and West
Understanding the inner workings of human anatomy, down to its core. Exploring postural diagnosis, eastern meridian line theory and the application of acupressure, as well as the somatic-emotional and somatic-visceral connections.
Advanced adjustments and therapeutic techniques
Develop confidence to connect with others by touch and learn to use skillful adjustments to truly transform someone's perspective, changing the way they look at themselves and reshaping the lens with which they see the world.
We will review the groundwork necessary for feeling comfortable in this realm of teaching, reviewing advanced adjustment techniques as well as therapeutic postures meant to restore and revitalize.
Introduction to Astanga Yoga
We will explore the foundations of Vinyasa Yoga by understanding the system of Astanga Yoga and look at ways to modify based on students’ needs, while still staying true to the age old format.

Athletically, Dance is not so far from Yoga. Mystically, Yoga and Dance are quite different. If Yoga is the cessation of fluctuations of the mind, maybe dancing is the investigation of fluctuations of the body.
A weekend of challenging balance, strength and timing using concepts from dance, martial arts and partnering drills.
Methodology of Alignment: How to Assess posture, See Pattern, and Allow or Create Movement Towards A Holistic Center
Our world and nature in general can be understood through patterns. The golden spiral, and Pi are two classic examples of numerical patterns which are expressed physically through architecture, the animal world, and also in the human body. The pattern of a wave in the ocean is a pattern that we can mimic within our form. The pattern of a circle, rectangle, or square can be used for the construction of an object or an asana (posture).
In a postural diagnostic context it is important to look at how one part of the body such as the foot may hold patterns within its structure and imprinting that are repeated across the body.
Using specific principles of alignment we will gain a better understanding of ourselves, others, and our world in a reasonably objective manner.
