Doug Keller Teacher Training and Weekend Workshop

March 29-31, 2018 | Register

The Breath Connection:  Connecting the Power of the Breath to the Power of Asana.

This won’t simply be an exhortation to “breathe!” during asana, but an inquiry into disordered patterns of breathing that we bring to asana — and how it affects our experience.

The point will be to understand and cultivate better, more balanced and supportive patterns of breathing, and enhancing awareness of healthy patterns in asana — which will in turn reduce misalignments and movement patterns that otherwise contribute to pain and the chance of injury. 

This will include an in-depth look at sacral stability and SI joing integrity and pain.

 

 


I was less than enthusiastic when I remembered my wife and I had signed up to take a couples massage workshop. My attitude quickly changed during the workshop with Annie. The entire experience was informative, enjoyable and rejuvenating. Annie’s instruction was clear, and the techniques she demonstrated and taught immediately brought ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ as we practiced on one another. The time flew by. I left with more confidence in my ability to effectively massage my wife as well as a newly relaxed and energized body.
