Roslyn’s open level vinyasa classes are structured to help yogis of all abilities use their breath to find inner and outer strength and balance. Each class will be framed around a philosophical theme to be integrated and embodied through the physical practice. Practice will close with a luxuriant savasana and short meditation. Modifications and alignment adjustments will be offered to suit individual needs.
Yoga and Ayurveda are elemental practices. They engage the Five Elements, or Pancha Mahabhutas ~ of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether. In the Yogic cosmology, we understand that the world is made of these Pancha Mahabhutas, which bring spirit into matter from the most rarified form of Ether, down to the densest form of Earth.
In this workshop, we spiral around the embodied experience of these Five Elements in movement and practice. We will touch upon how they relate to the energetic system of the body, and correspond to the layers of tissue as well.

Shoulder pain: It comes, it goes. It flares up, you rest it. You find someone-anyone-to rub that super small knot on the edge of your shoulder blade that you can’t get to. You swear you’ll stop spending so much time slouching in front of a screen. Sound familiar?
In this Yamuna Body Rolling Workshop, we will focus on the larger, stronger and often imbalanced muscles that have insertions at the shoulder.
Regaining healthy foot function allows you to stand, walk and run with strength and dexterity versus mindlessly shuffling along on feet that end up achy and sore, no matter what shoes you are wearing. Come discover your own walking pattern and the weak areas of each foot, then learn the proper exercises to FIX YOUR FEET.
This workshop consists of a beginning breath work and then progressing into guided mindfulness meditation, short break with discussion on bringing meditation into our daily lives.
We will then transition into a Restorative and Yin Yoga yoga workshop blend that will allow our bodies the opportunity to relax. Restorative yoga uses a series of easy, supported poses held for a long time under the right conditions (including the use of many props) to tip the balance from “fight or flight” mode into deep relaxation. Yogis developed these poses over many years, under the conditions set in restorative yoga, immediate effects on heart rate, blood pressure and brain activity are possible. Emphasis is on complete muscular relaxation and comfort are emphasized to achieve a quiet state of mind and body. Yin Yoga invites you to slow down and create space for stillness while nourishing joints, ligaments, tendons and fascia. Yin is yoga at its coolest, deepest, quietest, stillest moments. Poses are held for 2-5 minutes allowing joints and fascia to release.
Space limited to 10 people mats, and props provided.
*No late arrivals please be on your mat and ready to flow @ 7pm .
Learn to breathe with more ease and freedom using embodied anatomy and the principles of non-doing of the Alexander Technique.
Fluid movement of the breath is essential for healthy functioning of the organs, for calming the effects of stress and anxiety in the body, and for promoting a sense of confidence and wellbeing.
In a simple practice of reclined and seated postures you will learn how your breathing mechanism works and how to identify and liberate habitual patterns of neuromuscular tension to create greater ease and freedom around the breath.
Space is limited to four people, so sign up early to guarantee your spot. Appropriate for everyone.
