The Inner Radiance of Tejas: A Contemplation and Breath Practice

The Sanskrit word Tejas means “brilliance,” “brightness,” “radiance.” Tejas comes from the root Tej, which means to sharpen, to heat, to shine, to endure. Tejas is also used as synonym for fire and light. In yoga philosophy, Tejas is the subtle energy of fire, the radiance of vitality though which we digest and process food, air, impressions, and thoughts. It’s the power of transformation and discernment. Join Eduardo for a contemplation and breath practice to cultivate our inner radiance! Learn more about this Yoga off the Mat class.

Your Pelvic Floor and Yoga

This is a foundational workshop to begin to explore the muscles "down there" and how they play an integral role in supporting the body in everyday life and in yoga. Dr. Megan Anderson, a physical therapist and a yoga instructor, will guide students through the basics of the anatomy, structure, and function of the pelvic floor. Students will take time to learn how to engage and relax the pelvic floor muscles through pranayama (breathing practices), asana, and meditation. The workshop will also briefly cover pelvic floor dysfunction (what can go wrong) and what we can do to restore balance to our bodies to promote a healthy, active lifestyle. No yoga experience required.
