Chit Chat: Creativity in Practice with Kelly Sobanski – Free

July 23, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Creativity in practice

Join Kelly Sobanski for a community chit chat

Sunday, July 23rd from 3:30 – 4:30 pm pst / 6:30 – 7:30 pm est on zoom


Join us for a chit-chat with Kelly to talk about practice, creativity and helpful sequencing. You may be wondering, what are the important guidelines and structures for a healthy practice? Why do they exist? When can we break them? What are the benefits of adding “ands” to our practices? How can we develop exciting practices that go beyond routine or feeling like a chore? And, how do we trust our instincts when and when not to do certain poses, actions, or sequences? Do we have to listen and apply every single thing our teachers say? Has there been a time when you didn’t listen and it led to success or missteps?

Let’s discuss how to balance these dynamic questions. Let us explore how creativity can inspire our personal practices. We will brainstorm ways to make our practices more exciting and fun. Let’s take a look at the places where new ideas are created and how to keep our practices vibrant. Do you have practice secrets that might help others?

This event will be a light-hearted time that encourages open-mindedness, adventure and versatility within the realms of Yoga and everyday life.



The yoga tradition offers us so much wisdom.  Even within Iyengar Yoga there is a universe of interesting topics to discuss.  Over an informal hour together, we will take a deeper dive into one specific topic that we love.

We welcome everyone whether you are brand new to Adeline Yoga or have been an Iyengar Yoga practitioner for decades.

Our monthly chit-chats are a fun time for community conversations together.  For many years, we have gathered at the Iyengar Institute in Pune to chit-chat with Geeta Iyengar, Sunita Iyengar and now Abhijata and other RIMYI teachers.  We treasure these times together and enjoy bringing this tradition to Adeline Yoga.  It is a fun time to engage in stimulating conversation around important topics that relate to the greater Yoga tradition.

The purpose of our monthly gathers are to:

  • Excite and inspire aspiring and current yoga students everywhere
  • Give students access to our outstanding faculty, allowing them to get to know their teachers in new ways
  • Expose students to facets of Iyengar Yoga that they might know know about
  • Give teachers an opportunity to talk about topics they love

Throughout 2023, we plan to host chit-chats monthly.  The format will vary between a presentation, Q&A and group discussion. Breakout groups and other creative uses of zoom may happen!



A recording will be sent to anyone who registers.
