I always joke with my students that chiropractors make their living adjusting imbalances in the neck given that neck pain is so common! This class is aimed to release foreshortening in the neck muscles and compression around the nerves and discs of the neck region. Neck pain frequently results in headaches, insomnia, jaw strain and fatigue. Given that the neck is so tied into the shoulders, this class will address the ways that neck tension is coupled with shoulder restriction. We will use non-force techniques to unwind tension in the neck, particularly with spiral movements for the neck and shoulders.

Prajna Yoga: Tias & Surya Little

In Sanskrit, the word Prajna means insight, deep understanding, and mindfulness. It suggests a dynamic embodied wisdom that permeates every cell and every tissue in the body. We believe that yoga is a pathway that begins in the outer layers of the body and mind and navigates inward to the mystical, subtle, and rarely seen interior. We combine meditative practice with the power and grace of asana training. In a process that requires sensitivity and inner listening, we explore the sheaths of connective tissue, muscle, and bone in order to bring about greater wakefulness, luminosity, and space within.
