Seasonal Surrender One Day Autumn Retreat with Harvest Dinner with Caroline Pineau
Saturday Oct 8, 2-9pm
Where: The Yoga Tree, Haverhill
Autumn is a magical time in New England, the time of the harvest season, the changing foliage, and the energetic shift from the buzz of summer months to winter calm. It is the perfect time to recharge yourself, connect to your source, and the community that surrounds you. Nestle into our beautiful downtown Haverhill studio, for a an extended afternoon practice. Embrace the vibrancy of the season with a 2.5 vinyasa practice, offering the right amount of sweat and surrender. During a season of change, explore Apana Vayu, grounding earthbound energy in the body. After rooting through strong standing and seated asanas, settle in for some deeply restorative and yin postures. Caroline will offer nurturing and energetic hands on assists and warmly welcomes all levels of practitioners.
After practice, caravan over to Caroline’s quiet home in Haverhill’s countryside to enjoy a creative four course vegetarian dinner, lovingly prepared by local yoga teacher and chef duo, Adelaide & Jason. The autumn menu will feature the season's best local ingredients, meticulously sourced from Adelaide and Jason’s local farmer friends. Organic and biodynamic wine and seasonal cordials will be paired with dinner. The chef duo will also provide a local food sourcing guide to guests, featuring links to local farmers and foragers.
A great local getaway to celebrate the vibrancy of autumn!
A DAY WITH AME WREN
Mad Props 2
Sat Nov 19, 11:30am-2pm
Whoever invented yoga props was a genius. This workshop will teach you how to use them. Contrary to popular belief, yoga props do not make poses easier. Often they bring the body into more optimal asana alignment and actually intensify the experience. This is not a workshop on putting a block under your hand. This will be a 2.5 hour exploration into the magic of props (including the wall) and how to learn from them. Your asana practice will never be the same.
Alignment & Anatomy Refresher For Yoga Teachers & Teachers in Training
Saturday Nov 19, 2:30pm-6:30pm
This 4hr workshop is for the yoga teachers out there who need a thorough reconnect with the point & purpose of asana. Why are we doing these poses? What do they actually teach the students? Through practice, lecture, partner work and skeletal study, we will review the baseline postures and what their primary and secondary actions are (read: the point) while also revisiting some fundamental human anatomy. Because anatomical asana ideas change frequently, we will also look at how things were once taught and how the study of biomechanics suggests we teach them a different way. Come as an investment in your own practice and your students.
