I highly recommend that you attend this wonderful workshop in Aptos with Christina Sell. Christina's clear instruction and precise cuing has made an amazing impact on my practice and has strongly influenced my teaching in the last 4+ years.
It's a treat to have her hosted so near to us in Santa Cruz! It will sell out, so I recommend that you register early.

At the heart of the yoga practice is the invitation to bring apparent opposites together without tension. Some think a playful attitude is at odds with the disciplined path of yoga, while others believe that the rigor of a practice precludes delight and enjoyment. Asana practice, with its many challenges, is a perfect opportunity to explore the balance of opposing forces and to tap directly into the harmony of the heart.
Join us for an all levels practice that will include standing poses, hip opening, arm balances, basic back bending, forward folding, and twists -- all with an intention to bring precision and play into harmony. Perfect for teachers and students, this class will help you find depth in familiar postures through repetition, fundamental alignment principles, and intelligent self-inquiry.
