Yoga + Writing: Creative Fearlessness with Jo $20
Saturday, 5/6, 11:30 - 1:30 pm 
Writing and Yoga compliment each other. Yoga unlocks physical tension and fosters creativity. It generates communication between the body and mind. Writing gives us a platform to share our insight. It’s a meditative practice that has been proven to ease chronic conditions and reduce stress. The benefits of both run parallel. They are powerful synergists that can elevate our life as long as we give ourselves permission to explore both.
Through movement, meditation, and multiple writing exercises, we will do just that and allow our own unique experience to unfold. This workshop is fitting for all, no writing or yoga experience necessary! Bring a pen, journal, and wear clothes you can move in. 
Vinyasa Sequencing Workshop with Jeanmarie Paolillo

Sequencing 3: Considerations and Structure in Sequencing 
May 6, 2017 • In Balance Yoga • 1:45 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.

Creating a sequence is like writing a story; each has a beginning, middle, and an end. There is a logical crescendo toward the climax of the storyline, followed by a thoughtful cooling down and a resolution or ending. In this workshop we will look at the theory behind structuring a class and factors that need to be considered in sequencing.
Sequencing 4: Advanced Asana 
June 10, 2017 • In Balance Yoga • 1:45 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.

In this final workshop of the series, we will work through some real-life applications of sequencing. We will create sequences around advanced asana and explore the considerations inherent in teaching these to open level classes.
$25 per session

**Excited for Jeanmarie to teach a Master Class regularly at In Balance Yoga beginning August.  : )
