Part 1: Breathing Basics
We breathe approximately 12- 15 times a minute. 17, 280 – 21,600 times a day, 6 – 8 million times a year! Join Kat for this workshop to gain a greater awareness of this continuous process in your own body to improve your quality of well-being. In this introductory workshop, we will first become familiar with the main organs, structures and forces that affect breathing. Then, we will explore different ways of breathing and their effects on the body. Finally, we will work with breathing to enhance movement.

Yoga District Dupont
Ever heard the words vata, pitta, or kapha around the yoga studio and wondered what they meant? Or are you just interested in living more harmoniously with nature and optimizing your health? Come join Kat for a brief introduction to Ayurveda, an ancient Indian healing system that has been continuously practiced for over 5,000 years. This system looks at the individual as a whole and works with bringing harmony to the body, mind, and soul.
Come explore the foundations of this ancient science and see how it can apply to you. In this workshop, Kat will offer a background of Ayurveda, an explanation of elemental and doshic theory, a quiz to discover your dosha and a perspective on how we can work with the elements to adjust our daily living as the seasons change.

Prana Flow Workshop: Natarajasana – Dance With Change
As we move deeper into the transition of Fall, find fluid stability by checking out Prana Flow, a flowing style of yoga that will help you build strength, flexibility and endurance, with the rhythm of movement set by the pace of your breath. In this workshop, we’ll do a progressive Prana Flow sequence that develops stability and balance through a deep connection to the center line while opening the shoulders, hips, and front body. This rhythmic, heating practice leading to Natarajasana (a standing balancing backbending pose) will be followed by restorative, relaxing hip openers.
Where, When, and How Much:
Yoga District Dupont 11/5 4:15-6:15pm ($20).
