Balance, Backbends, and Better Butts!
with Nanci Celini
Date: Saturday, June 29
Time: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Regardless of your age, stage in life or fitness level, balance and agility have been shown to be the keys to aging gracefully and avoid injury. The simple act of getting up out of a low chair can be challenging for the body but thanks to modern science and yoga research, yogis know how to improve these critical skills for daily living as well as preparing for greater challenges that life can throw our way.
By practicing a combination of poses and the transition in and out of poses (safely) research has shown that yoga can improve your balance, strength and agility once you discover these effective techniques.
This workshop focuses on three components to build a strong foundation in the body for improved balance, back health and glute strength (and who doesn’t want a better butt?).
Come and have fun, learn new techniques and explore ways to develop better balance. You will discover ways to improve your personal practice and meet some new yogi friends!
This workshop is suitable for:
Beginners as well as
Intermediate yoga practitioners,
Yoga teachers and
Those who seek an informed practice.

Taught by Susan Markowitz, a Kane School Graduate Teacher Trainer, PMA Certified Instructor and owner of Pivotal Pilates, this course is presented in a lecture-style format with workbooks and PowerPoint presentations. Throughout the course, students gain hands-on experience via regular palpation of muscles, bones, and ligaments. Students also learn how to practically apply information taught in the course to their movement professional career via analysis of Pilates exercises and an introduction to posture analysis.
Additional topics such as core stability and the anatomical basis of common tension patterns & injuries are also addressed. Students can test out of this course with a passing grade on the Kane School anatomy entrance exam.
