Yin Yoga & the Koshas

Date: Saturday, March 30
Time: 10am-6pm
Instructor: Emily Garrett
Cost: $125, register here>

Learn the basics of Yin Yoga through the framework of the koshas. The koshas are the layers, or sheaths, that make up our bodies. It is the movement through these layers that connects us with our basic goodness, our rightness as humans and our understanding that we are complete. Yin Yoga is a wonderful way to move through the layers and access this inner wisdom. In this day long workshop Emily will outline the framework of the koshas and break down the basics of Yin Yoga, including its philosophy, meditative qualities, and mechanics of the foundational poses. You will learn how to create a space ripe for exploration, self acceptance and stillness while understanding the mechanics and process behind the practice. Open to all interested in learning more about Yin Yoga and the Koshas. 

Emily Garrett taught her first class to a group of homeless women in 1999.  Immediately, she recognized the power of sharing yoga which she has continued to this day. Emily’s classes emphasize that through yoga and meditation practice we can learn to be present in our lives.
Emily is the owner of Laughing River Yoga where she co-directs the Laughing River Yoga Teacher Training.  Her studies include work with Jill Satterfield, Nevine Michaan, Simon Park, Tias Little, Jon Fabbro and Leslie Howard, with whom she received her certification as a Pelvic Floor Yoga Teacher.  She has a committed meditation practice in the Shambala tradition and learns the big practice of presence through being a mom to two beautiful children.
Grounded and warm, Emily brings to her classes a thorough understanding of alignment, patience, and an invitation to compassionately explore one’s self. It is the deep inner stillness she hopes to share with her students, the sense that they are perfect as they are.
