Alanna Kaivalya, aka the ‘JivaDiva’ will be gracing the nation’s capital on January 28th – 30th with three workshops at Tranquil Space. Do not miss this chance to practice with one of NYC’s greatest teachers!

Myths of the Asanas Workshop: Who is the Warrior behind Virabhadrasana I, II and III? Why does Hanuman have three poses in his honor? What makes King Dancer pose so regal? The myths of yoga’s spiritual tradition have the power to change old patterns of behavior, providing us with enlightened insight that brings us closer to who we really are.

The Art of Adjustments: Yoga practitioners derive tremendous benefit from effective adjustments. This workshop will explore the principles behind save and transformative hands-on assists. All types of adjustments will be covered, and an understanding of how to “see” the body and optimize students’ freedom in asanas will be explored.
