Workshops are special two-hour learning sessions which are usually on a Saturday afternoon. These interactive extended sessions allow students to learn more than ‘how’ but also ‘why’ we do certain things in yoga. Even better, they include a glass of granny’s homemade lemonade specially brewed for the session.

Please note there is a 7-day cancellation policy for workshops. Your spot is not confirmed until payment is made.

What you will learn:

If you are experiencing foot issues like bunions, heel spurs, planta fasciitis or calluses, this talk might be for you.

Your feet contain 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments. The foot consists of 3 parts: the forefoot which includes the toes, the midfoot, containing the arches, and the hindfoot, which supports the heel and ankle. Even small changes in the foot, such as wearing shoes that are too small or with high heels and no arch support, can undermine its structural integrity and cause pain with every step.

This talk is followed by a Yin Yang Yoga class focused on the feet and your legs, led by Simona.
