Core Strength: Anatomy and Energetics
A strong core is so much more than just toned six-pack muscles. In this session with Ashleigh Sergeant and Gina Caputo, we will learn why the core plays such a central role in yoga asana practice, digging into both the energetic and physical anatomy of the core. We will discover the qualities that define a healthy core, better understand how the chakra system can serve as a guide to the spiritual experience of our bodies, and discuss movement practices that promote the wellbeing of our entire physical system.
The Power of Mantra
Explore the yoga of sacred sound in this talk with host Ashleigh Sergeant and mantra meditator and Yoga Every Day teacher Steph Schwartz. Mantras are sonic tools to focus the mind and cultivate intention that can be called in anywhere, on or off the mat. In this session, we will learn about the philosophy and tradition of mantra meditation as well as do a practice to tune into the vibration of each of the chakras, accompanied by the harmonium.
