Yoga for Optimal Wellbeing, $165

This course is designed to teach you how to optimize your wellbeing and extend your health span through a yoga practice focused on better biomechanics, mindfulness, and joy. Physical movement is critically important for our long term wellbeing. However, there is mounting evidence that shows that how we move, not just how much we move, can have a dramatic effect on our wellbeing. In this course you will learn how to notice your ingrained detrimental habits (neck tension, for example) and then learn specific techniques designed to disrupt those patterns and create new, more beneficial ones. The physical benefits from better movement are significant. However, better movement requires and thus also increases your mindfulness, and that has equally profound benefits for your cognitive and emotional health. Lastly, focusing on mindfulness and better movement also makes your yoga practice dramatically more enjoyable. This contributes directly to your wellbeing, but also increases the likelihood that you will continue to practice regularly. An additional focus for this winter session is a framework for helping you develop and maintain a personal yoga practice. The course also includes an illustrated practice guide that describes all the poses and techniques covered in the course, as well as a set of online video classes you can use to practice at home, even after the course ends.
