Enhance Your Practice (IN STUDIO only)

Details make all the difference! In this series, you will learn how to enhance your yoga poses and sequences of poses. The key to this refinement is learning how to better adapt and attune the poses to fit your body and where you are with your yoga practice. You will also practice common transitions between poses and learn how to modify to meet your comfort level and range of motion.

Group size is limited, giving you more time to ask questions and explore the answers as well as opportunities to learn from each other and get more one on one attention.
This is an in-studio series only. I will be walking around offering suggestions tailored specifically to those who are in the room.

Yoga Pose Workshop: Up Dog & Down Dog (IN STUDIO)

Since details can make a lot of difference, join me for a fun and informative look at Down and Up Dog. Together we will talk about and practice these poses along with variations to them. Focus will also be on connecting Down and Up Dog in sequences and sun salutations.

Some common requests and questions from Savonn’s “Enhance Your Practice Series” include:

  • I’d like to understand downward facing dog better.
  • What exactly is upward facing dog?
  • Am I doing these poses right?

A few take aways include learning how to better adapt and attune the poses to fit your body and where you are with your yoga practice.

R&R:  Restore and Renew ~ An Evening of Yin and Restorative Yoga (IN STUDIO)

Take a break towards the end of the week to unwind, relax, restore and replenish. We will begin with a combination of easy stretching and myofascial release techniques to bring your body back to a more ideal state by enhancing body awareness, rehydrating connective tissue, and decreasing stuck stress that accumulates from daily living. From there, we will explore poses from both Yin and Restorative Yoga styles to slow down, replenish, further unwind, and deeply relax.

Summer Solstice Yoga Celebration (IN STUDIO or LIVE STREAM)

I have been leading Solstice and Equinox celebrations for over 15 years. It has become a long standing tradition and something I look forward to every year.  Join me at Sellwood Yoga, to gather by candlelight and move through a slow, mindful vinyasa flow sequence before moving into a deeply nourishing yin and restorative practice.  Or sign up to LIVE STREAM the class.

I will send an email, ahead of time, to everyone who is registered for the class. The email will have some ideas to consider to make your practice time feel more special and aligned with the equinox, whether you are at home or joining me in the studio. I will also send out some seasonal readings/poems along with a Spotify playlist. It will be your choice whether or not you use the playlist to accompany your time on the mat.

Don’t miss out on this tradition of honoring equinoxes and solstices through celebratory yoga practices. Connect to the rhythms of the year, along with friends, family and community.
