Advanced Transitions with Lauren Fields

In this workshop, the following concepts will be explored and practiced. Moving actively from the 'core,' resistance exercises as a means to move into and out of postures, complete flow with no repeat tracks, and finally automatic pranayama which will increase circulation and create relaxation within advanced postures.

Master teacher Lauren Fields, (E-RYT, 500 hr) we will guide us as we warm up with the Spinal Synergy 'Nerve Tensioning and spinal traction sequence' (Meru panda mudras vinyasa) followed by the 'Spinal Movements Sequence' ( Meru panda vinyasa) During these movements students will begin to practice, as well as learn what it means to move actively from the 'core.' Following the warm up, students will be guided through an hour long flow where the body will be prepared with shapes and openings that will aid in workshopping the advanced transitions. During the flow, students will be given insight into the power of resistance exercises, as a way to both enter and exit a posture through the practice of complete flow. This means there will zero backtracking within in the pattern of the body, and instead will enter and then leave the posture in a different way.

Yomassage™

Yomassage™

Join us for an evening of pure bliss with Yomassage™

Yomassage™ is a fusion of relaxing and supported yoga poses with hands on massage therapy. Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. During the long holds of restorative yoga, your muscles are allowed to relax deeply. It's a unique feeling because props, rather than your muscles, are used to support your body. Each pose is held for around 5-8 minutes while a licensed massage therapist comes around and performs manual massage on different parts of the body.

Yomassage™ not only allows your body to stretch and relax in restorative/yin poses, but to increase circulation, provide myofascial release, and trigger point therapy through massage.

Yomassage™ is for anyone who values massage therapy and yoga as therapeutic and healing practice. 

Investment: $45 

All sales are final. No refunds, account credits or transfers. 

Space is limited - Advanced registration is required. 

** An intake and liability form will be provided prior to class. We kindly ask that you complete it and send Linda before the class. 

About Linda Caravia:

As a licensed massage therapist and longtime yogi, musculoskeletal anatomy and kinesiology have become a natural passion. My work is slow and intentionally designed to create deep relaxation. I appreciate yoga for the deeper connection it brings to our sense of mobility, while massage increases a sense of connectedness to one another. I believe by attending to one another in community classes we increase our joy and sense of belonging.
