Full System Detox

J-P Tamblyn-Sabo - FR2JPT

Our yoga practice is an opportunity to clear some of the toxicity that we absorb and retain as a result of living in an ever-more physically, energetically, emotionally and environmentally hazardous world. Yoga is one of our best defences for combatting the stress and disease that can result from this toxic build-up. But the _detox potential_ of yoga isn_t just a matter of sweating, breathing and doing twisting poses. Addressing only the physical (or the mental or the emotional) and not the entire ecosystem means that we might be missing the part of ourselves that needs to be cleansed the most! In this session, discover a simple, comprehensive approach to detoxing with yoga on five levels: physical, mental, energetic, behavioural and emotional. Leave feeling refreshed, lighter, energetic and inspired, and with the tools to continue your detoxification practice in the days, months and years ahead.


6:00 PM - 8:00 PM (2 HRS)


Get More from Your Core

J-P Tamblyn-Sabo - SA1JPT

The phrase _core strength_ is sometimes used interchangeably with _strong abdominal muscles._ But to truly access your _core strength_ requires more than just a whole lot of sit-ups! A good connection to your _core_ can completely transform your experience of yoga postures, making them stronger, more stable, more balanced, more efficient and safer. This workshop will examine postures and exercises that are ideal for helping you find a stronger connection to your center, while also exposing some common _core-strengthening_ postures that might even be completely counter-productive to those ends! Get more deeply connected to your core, and redefine power and stability in your practice.


8:00 AM - 10:00 AM (2 HRS)


World's Greatest Pigeon Pose

J-P Tamblyn-Sabo - SA3JPT

Pigeon pose has become one of the most popular yoga postures, and for good reason! It can help soften restrictive tightness in the hips, release emotions stored up in the deep recesses of the body, and when done with good positioning, it just FEELS GREAT! Pigeon presents a wealth of opportunities, but to access the full spectrum of its potential benefits (and to get those benefits without putting the knees at risk), we need to have a few different approaches to this deep and delicious hip-opener. We will explore how certain versions of this posture can give us access to specific muscles in the hip and either protect the knees or put them at greater risk of strain or even injury. If pigeon is challenging for you, this is your chance to learn to love it! And if you already love it, you might love it even more!


1:00 PM - 3:00 PM (2 HRS)


Free Your Fascia

J-P Tamblyn-Sabo - SU2JPT

In recent years, understanding the role of the connective tissue known as _fascia_ is transforming our ability to build healthy flexibility and mobility. (It turns out tight muscles are just one part of the equation!) In this class, we will incorporate a range of exercises designed to address restrictions in fascia that actually impede our ability to stretch our muscles effectively, allowing for a safer, more effective practice that also just feels better! If you want your yoga practice to include the feeling of freedom in your body, free your fascia!


11:30 AM - 1:30 PM (2 HRS)
