Yoga Wheel Workshop

Join Lisa for a playful workshop using yoga wheels to explore and stretch your body while discovering new balance both on and off the mat.

What is a Yoga Wheel, you ask? It’s a sturdy ring of PVC plastic coated with a sticky yoga mat strip. It’s part yoga prop, part balance toy. Yoga Wheels are great for opening your chest, shoulders, and hips; fun for challenging your balance; and perfect for shaking you out of a yoga rut of familiar poses and movements.

We’ll learn to use the yoga wheels as props to both simplify and complicate common yoga poses, rolling through several small vinyasa flows, ending with a fun, playful session exploring all manner of balancing on and with the yoga wheel.

Yoga wheels will be provided (they will be sanitized before and after the workshop). Workshop attendees must bring their own mats and yoga blocks (two blocks are preferred).

All levels are welcome, but the using the Yoga Wheel requires a certain amount of yoga familiarity that might overwhelm a complete beginner. Balancing on the Yoga Wheel can be stressful on wrists and ankles, please exercise care if you have an issue with either of these areas.

Beginner Yoga 1 (5-week series)

Are you new to yoga? Never practiced before? Afraid to start because you can’t even touch your toes?

Do you practice occasionally but still have questions about how to get into a pose, or if you’re doing it right?

This series is for you!

Are you overwhelmed with obligations and family life but still have that urge to take time for yourself and try yoga?

Has your doctor told you to give yoga a try to ease joint pain, temper stress, help you sleep better, or any number of other reasons?

This series is for you!

The Beginner Yoga Series will take place over the course of five weeks with two 30-minute classes each week. The first class each week will be a recording that will be made available to you on Mondays, the second class each week will be a live Zoom class held on Thursday evenings.

Schedule too packed? Can’t make it to the classes? No problem!

If you aren’t able to attend class live, all series attendees will be given a link to an online showcase of all of the Beginner Yoga Series recordings. Watch and re-watch whenever it’s convenient for you!

Interested? Wondering how this would work?

On Mondays you will be sent a link to an online showcase where all of your Beginner Yoga video recordings will be stored. Each week, your showcase will receive a new 30-minute recording giving you a short breathing exercise and a general warm-up to make your body feel more fluid and less stiff. After the warm-up I will share a tutorial of the key poses of the week that will discuss alignment; what the pose should feel like (important); what the pose might look like (less important); how props or modifications might help us find those feelings we’re looking for; and what the poses are called and why. I promise we’ll laugh and have fun, too. This recording will close with a brief meditation to settle our minds and bodies and help us to integrate what we just learned.

On Thursdays we will meet on Zoom to review the breathing technique we learned earlier in the week; warm up our bodies with some gentle yoga poses; then review the week’s key poses so we can use what we learned to weave the poses into a fun flow, what we call Vinyasa. We’ll round out our time together with a restful pose called Savasana.

Worried that you’ll need to buy stuff?

You may have to buy a few things. You’ll definitely need a yoga mat, but it doesn’t have to be a fancY one. It’s highly recommended to have two yoga blocks and a yoga strap. These can be found online for around $25 and will greatly enhance your practice, I promise. You’ll also want to grab a thick blanket to prop up your poses and to cushion your bones in sitting and kneeling poses.

Skeptical? Worried? Sore and stiff as a board? I’m here for you.

I want to show you how great you can feel and how satisfying it is when you and your body stop acting as if they’re on opposing teams. Yoga doesn’t ask you to be perfect, it just asks you to show up on your mat.
