Yoga for Hypermobility & Hyperflexibility w/ Alison West - ONLINE

Saturday & Sunday, May 16-17, 9-12p each day

Wrist, Elbow, Shoulder (Sat)

Ankle, Knee, Hip (Sun)

Hyper-mobility of the joints can lead to instability, chronic hyper-extension and wear and tear on the tissues. Discover how to center the joints through proprioception (spatial self-awareness) exercises in supported Yoga poses and how to practice safely while maintaining balance in the joints. You may have instability in only one knee or elbow, or in both arms or shoulders but not in the legs, or in the lower back and pelvis. We will address the major joints of the limbs as well as the pelvis and lower back and help you find your balance. For teachers as well.

Level: Minimum one year of sustained practice


Cost: $125 or $75 each day (International students, please email studio to register.)

Spring Sound Bath w/ Kaitlyn Hipple & Mariana Orozco


Rest. Release. Resonate.


Experience the restorative and healing power of the gong. In a deep state of physical and mental repose, these special harmonies invite you to rise to another level of awareness where resolution and healing can occur.

This timeless space of prayer is full of magnificent vibrations that have the power to alter the conditioned mind of the ego, make visible solutions to unsolvable problems, dissipate physical, mental, and emotional tension, and help eliminate patterns that cause dis-ease. One often emerges from a profound experience that words cannot fully describe.

Gongs have existed for thousands of years, and have been used for a variety of purposes, including the healing of physical, mental, and emotional ailments. Their vibrations can cause subtle shifts inside the listener, which allow for a freer energy flow and this in turn allows natural healing to occur. As is known to multiple traditions, the world is composed by vibrations and these instruments provide some of the most powerful harmonics known to man. Mar and Kaitlyn will bring their personal collection of these ancient instruments in order to create a powerful sound scape where you will experience a wide variety of tones.

Come vibrate with the voice of the gong, accompanied by bowls, chimes, bells and other inspired sounds. 

Kaitlyn and Mar are graduates of Master Don Conreaux's Gong Training. Kaitlyn is a seasoned YU teacher who specializes in a holistic approach to a broad range of back issues and mentors teachers. Mar has studied various forms of Yoga, Qi Gong, and Ayurveda for several years, is an experienced Kundalini Yoga teacher, and regularly leads sound meditations. We gong because we love to share the power of holistic resonance, and look forward to bringing it to the Yoga Union community.
