In our popular Immersion Course series, we delve into areas of the body students ask us about most often -- shoulders, core, hips and hamstrings. Join us for one or all four workshops.

Shoulders
January 13 | 4:00-6:00 PM
Feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders? Rest your texting fingers, step away from your computer and melt your frozen shoulders. During this workshop with Jeanette Lee we'll focus on bringing warm energy to your upper body, learn to create space in the shoulder girdle, relieve tension in the neck and head, work to increase shoulder mobility and build strength.

Core
January 20 | 4:00-6:00 PM
The  word core is defined as "the central, innermost, or most essential part of anything." To move from the core will change your asana practice. It will deepen every pose and help bring you strength, grace and confidence. In this workshop with Dan Carter, we'll get a clear picture of all four sides of the core, explore pranayama and build into a core-focused vinyasa practice, wll without doing a single sit-up.

Hips
January 27 | 4:00-6:00 PM
Every day life of sitting for hours on end, hiking, biking, walking and running all demand hip strength, but not flexibility. In fact, these activities can lead to tighter muscles in the hip flexors, rotators and illiopsoas. In this workshop with Rachel Morrison, we'll explore a sequences that will coax the body toward more open hips and learn how to approach hip openers in a safe and effective way for everyday practice.

Hamstrings
February 3 | 4:00-6:00 PM
Flexible, strong hamstrings are a key foundation for any yoga practice -- they protect the lower back and help to anchor the sitting bones and open the plevis. But hamstrings are often stubbornly tight, which may to lower back injury and difficulty moving into more advanced poses. This workshop with Liz Bernstein will gently and gradually coax the hamstrings to lengthen through a series of poses designed to create more flexibility in this key muscle group. Runners welcome!

Individual workshops cost $30; $25 for members. The entire series costs $110; $90 for members.
