The untranslatable poses and their lessons
You know the poses your teachers say that sound kind of like ladalada-asana? Ever wonder why they don’t just use English? Sometimes they can’t!
Most poses are named after generic things or beings (adho mukha svanasana – downward facing dog). Then there is the set named after ancient rishis – yoga sages – which have no translation into English.
In this workshop we’ll study both the physical side of these poses, as well as the sages who inspired them through Vinyasa Flow, Pose Workshop, and Dharma. Together we’ll investigate the meaning they have for our very modern day bodies and lives.
Poses include twists & arm balances: Koundinyasana, Marichyasana, Vasisthasana, Kasyapasana, Visvamitrasana (pictured), Ashtavakrasana, and Galavasana. Appropriate for All Level & Int/Adv students.
A place to focus and fine tune your practice
This one-hour workshop will bring into the spotlight a single pose or transition found in All Level, Open, or Int/Adv classes. Everyone will have their pose itself tweaked by Jen, and the workshop will close with releases and a simple quieting pose for the nervous system.
More coming this Fall! Stay tuned!

Students will be led through an intelligently sequenced advanced asana practice. As we flow with the breath through a delicious extended 2 hour vinyasa class, we will work toward an “advanced peak pose”. Students will cultivate endurance and challenge their boundaries, as they sink into the rhythm of a strict vinyasa practice.
Expect chanting, music, dharma, fun vinyasa, a long savasana, and closing meditation – all the components you love in one of Jen’s classes.
Have you been an “Open Level” student for awhile now? Do you love a good Int/Adv class? Have you been curious about exploring the “non-physical” side of yoga? Have you begun (or want) to take your practice off your mat and into your modern day life? Then this is the workshop for you!
We’ll integrate a steady flowing advanced asana class, a guided meditation, and dharma study into a complete yoga practice:
1:45- 3:30 – Advanced Flow Asana Class
3:30-3:40 – Break
3:40-4:00 – Guided Meditation
4:00-4:45 – Dharma Study (Topic: Yoga Sutras) – no dharma experience required
Recommended for students with a regular Open Level or Int/Adv practice
