Kate Greer & Richmond Dickson join us at The Yoga Room

July 3rd & 4th, 2012: Two special master classes

Tuesday July 3rd (6:00-8:00 pm) Let Freedom Ring: Backbending and Bhakti:  Bhakti, or love, may be the greatest force in the world. In this special two hour class, Kate and Richmond will lead you through an uplifting and opening practice of backbending and heart-opening. The feeling of a sublime savasana, where you are totally receptive, is a moment when you are free – free of worry, planning or agenda. In much the same way, a backbending practice has the capacity to leave you feeling open, vast and liberated. Come open your heart with Kate and Richmond as a way of celebrating your innate freedom! $35

Wednesday July 4th (10-11:30 am) Liberate Yourself: Hips and Twists: Start your holiday off right with some opening and grounding in this special class! The hips are not only often the tightest part of the body but also a warehouse for latent emotion. As a result, hip-opening postures are a great release and a good way to put yourself at ease. Twists have a natural detoxifying effect on the body and are also healing to the organs – these poses are good for both before and after a party! Both categories of postures are a beautiful way to let go and be free of what isn’t serving you. Join Kate and Richmond for a healthy gift to yourself on this Independence Day! $30


About Kate & Richmond:

Kate Greer (Hanspal Kaur) began teaching yoga in NYC after completing a 200hr Vinyasa certification at Sonic Yoga. At that time, her personal practice and teaching were informed by her study at Kula Yoga Project and with Sri Dharma Mittra. Following an injury, Kate was led to the alignment based practice of Anusara, and the teachers Elana Brower and at Vira Yoga. Kate later became Anusara-Inspired, going on to study with Amy Ippoliti, Darren Rhodes, Noah Maze, and John Friend, and she continues to honor aspects of the Anusara system in her teaching today.Anusara taught Kate not only about healing injury through asana but also introduced her to Tantric philosophy. This piqued an interest that led Kate into further study and the practice of Kundalini, which she studied with Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa and Hari Kaur Khalsa at Golden Bridge Yoga. Kate completed her Level I teacher training at Yogi Bajan’s Ranch in Espanola, NM, and currently assists Level I trainings with Guruatma Singh and Prem Pyar Khalsa of Franklin Yoga.She is currently pursuing the teachings of Shadow Yoga through her teachers Scott Blossom, Chandra Easton, and Matt Pesendian.Kate lives in the Boston area with her husband, Richmond Dickson, and their son, Kahlil. She teaches public yoga classes and workshops at studios in and around the city, and she co-created and is a lead instructor of Back Bay Yoga’s 200hr Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Trainings.

Richmond Dickson is both an adept myofascial bodyworker and an inspiring Vinyasa Yoga teacher. Through his Shiva Rea training and exploration of Shadow Yoga, Richmond’s teaching comes from a love for movement & artistic expression, as well as his knowledge of structural alignment and movement mechanics. Through yoga, Richmond hopes to help his students find freedom and ease in movement and posture that will bring balance and peace to their day-to-day lives.

In 2009, Kate and Richmond founded Open Hearts Yoga School and began offering retreats and teacher trainings in Florida, New England and abroad. Their mission is to provide a safe and sacred space where teachers and students can interact, grow, heal and learn from each other about the open-hearted nature of all human beings. Please visit www.kategreeryoga.com and www.openheartsyogaschool.com for more info.
