Shining the Light on Your Sun Sign

January 26th 6:00 to 8:00 pm

with Marissa Winters

$30

My studies in astrology are fascinating….I have come to the firm conclusion that at the moment of birth an individual takes on the characteristic state of the Universe for that moment in time.” – C.G. Jung

Jung was on to something.Astrology is a tool which gives insight into why people do what they do. This understanding makes relating to and communicating with the important “others” in your life much easier. So often, it’s not what you say but how you say it that makes all the difference.

We’ll cover the characteristics of each sign, and how the Sun’s placement influences the way a person views and interacts with the world. Knowing this can empower you to connect with the important “others” in your life so you can be better heard and understood.

The workshop will be presented by Marissa Winters, a long time practitioner and student of astrology.

Shoulder Workshop

January 27th 12:30 to 2:30

With Claire

$30

Shoulder issues?

Here are some signs, can’t lift your arms overhead, can't lift your arms overhead without your head moving forward, shoulder hurts when sleeping on your side, can’t seem to throw a ball right, pain, headaches,snapping or twinges, tight chest muscles

The shoulders and hips are the only ball and socket joints in the body meaning when healthy they have the widest range of motion of any joints. So is it possible that restrictions in the hips can affect the shoulders and vise versa. Crazy as it may seem, yes! In this class we'll look at the anatomy of the shoulder, the way it moves and how the restriction of movement can affect the head, neck, hands, spine and hips. Then we'll explore techniques and exercises to help you discover where you’re restricted and begin to release it.

In February we will continue this exploration in Claire's Saturday morning class Yoga & Shoulders.

Pre-registration is required, please e-mail info@theyogaloftrnj.com or call 732-239-2333

The Pelvis - A 2 Part Series

February 10th & 17th 1:00 to 4:00pm

with Claire

$80.00 for both classes

or $45.00 for the first class only

The pelvis includes the hips, tailbone, sacrum, sit bones, pelvic floor, center of gravity and core stability, to name a few. In most traditions it is considered our foundation and source of power physically, mentally and emotionally. Problems here can cause imbalances anywhere in the body from the shoulders to the feet and can affect everything from incontinence, breathing to emotions. It is the foundation of every movement in the body and is the" basin" of our energy, including stamina and those energies we can't always explain. Here we'll look at anatomy and connect with it in our bodies through practice and exploration of movement. Through this we'll begin to learn how to properly engage, stabilize, stretch and soften the pelvis and its affect on the rest of the body.

This class is for students, teachers or anyone with a beginner's mind interested in going deeper into how your body works and ways to improve your abilities.

The classes are offered as 1) The Pelvis, Pelvic Floor & Knees 2) The Pelvis, Shoulders & Neck

The second class builds upon the first and for that reason you must attend the first class in order to take the second.
