Yoga as Medicine Workshops with Samara Anderson.   Upcoming August 5: Extremities Awakening & Healing: feet/legs, hands/arms.   Saturday, Albany Studio.  2-4PM.   This ongoing series focuses on the various mindful tools that can tap into the body’s own medicine cabinet to heal both the body and the mind through awareness.  Each workshop is focused on mindful tools students can use to heal specific parts of their body through Pranayama, Breath Awareness, Deep Breathing, combined with Focused Attention on specific parts of the body during the Yoga practice. The Yoga practice will spend the first half of the workshop warming up the body through Vinyasa Yoga (moving with your breath) so that we can use the second half of the workshop to create space and healing in Yin, Therapeutic and Restorative Yoga poses, which are longer holds where both the muscle and the fascia are released and made more spacious.   

 Cost is $25 for an individual class to preregister and $30 the day of the event.
