FALL BACK INTO PRACTICE with Sarana Miller:  September 6-8, 2019

Sarana is a master teacher drawing on the yoga styles and teachings of BKS Iyengar, Sarah Powers, Thomas Fortel, Ana Forrest and others. She fuses breath work, chanting and passive poses with active asanas over the course of a weekend. Sarana’s yoga is a practice of mind and body alignment and is suitable for practitioners of all ages and levels. She is on the faculty at Esalen Institute in Big Sur and teaches workshops in California, Mexico and Alaska. She lives in Haines, Alaska and in Berkeley, California.

Friday Sept. 6, 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Yin and Restorative Yoga
A relaxing and nourishing practice, mostly on the floor, with chest, shoulder and therapeutic hip openers. The subtleties of restorative poses support active bodies.

Saturday, Sept. 7, 9:00 am to Noon. Find Balance and Integrity in Movement
Meditation and breath work, building slowly into standing poses awakening both strength and flexibility.

Saturday, Sept. 7, 3:00 to 5:00 pm. Shoulders and Hips
Another layer of restorative poses. Myofascial release helps ease tension in the deep tissue, then long-held side bends and hip openers leave you feeling spacious and moving with ease.

Sunday, Sept. 8, 9:00 am to Noon. Stability and Ease in Movement
Morning meditation and breath work, laying the foundation for our practice and nourishing our parasympathetic nervous system.  Then building to focus on alignment and stability in standing poses, balance poses and gentle backbends.
