Boulder + Denver, CO

Saturday, April 30th – Monday, May 2nd

Join Alanna Kaivalya at Core Power Yoga in Colorado! Deepen your practice as you find out the truth about yoga myths, explore the seven chakras, and learn the art of assisting. Alanna will be hosting three incredible workshops at Core Power Yoga in both Denver and Boulder Saturday, April 30- Monday, May 2.

Myths of the Asanas | Saturday, April 30th | South Boulder 2pm – 4pm: 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 Essence of the Chakras | Sunday, May 1st | Cherry Hills  9-11am: Each of the seven chakras are sacred energy centers that give us information about where we need to direct our yoga practice – like a road map on the highway to liberation. Through the use of yoga asana and mantra, we’ll delve deeply into the energetic patterns held within our bodies to discover the blockages and resistance preventing us from experiencing a constant state of happiness.

The Art of Adjustments | Monday, May 2nd | Cherry Hills 6-8pm: 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.

Margate, NJ

Friday, April 29th

Change your perspective at the Zen Den in Margate with Simon Park and Nancy Kate Williams!

Inversions ask us to be fully present while turning our world upside down. We must root down into the earth in order to rise into the sky and pull to the center of ourself in order to feel balanced and confident to offer our gifts to those around us. They teach us to view our experience from a new perspective and connect that which we cannot see. Inversions are healing, nurturing, exciting, rejuvenating and strengthening! Join us as we explore inverted asanas, learning key actions through a conscious flow to help you boldly fly with grace and help you conquer your fears of going upside down.
