Fun with the Belts: In-Person Yoga with Sachiko
June 18 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Fun with Belts
Saturday June 18th: 1 – 3 pm in-person at our studio in Berkeley
with Sachiko Nishizawa Willis
Belts are an essential part of the yoga practice in these times. They are so handy! You can easily grab a belt if you are new to yoga or need an aid for flexibility. And yet, it can also make a pose more challenging – if you want it to. The yoga belt is so useful – its often the first you reach for and likely the only prop you take when traveling.
There are so many different types of belts we use at Adeline Yoga. They can provide extra support, traction, stability, relief and ease in the pose. They can also guide us in bringing more awareness and intelligence in the actions and alignment of our body.
Its so amazing and fun to explore the world of belts.
This workshop can teach you ways a yoga belt can:
- Increase your range of motion
- Prevent injury
- Provide support and stability to a pose
- Manage pain
- Access more comfortable alignment
- Safely access poses that may be more advanced or less familiar to you
Join Sachiko in this workshop – exploring the use of belts in all sorts of poses including standing poses, inversions, back and forward extensions!
This course is best for those who have studied Iyengar Yoga for at least three months.
Space is limited to 18 participants, reserve your spot!
$35 per person – a special rate if you register by June 5
$45 per person if you register after June 5
