Please join us for our most exciting event of the summer: 3 Days with Kathryn Budig. Broken into 4 segments, each 2-2.5 hour session will be different. Our weekend begins Friday evening with Kathryn’s Aim True Authentic Flow, Saturday boasts two segments, both a part of Kathryns signature Flight of the Yogi workshop. Saturday morning’s practice will focus on arm balances, while Saturday afternoon’s practice will focus on inversions. Sunday’s Spice Up Your Practice session will focus on “new and exciting Sun Salutation variations, fun transitions, vigorous vinyasa, and new exit strategies.” Each session will run between $40-$45 with a discount given to students who register for the entire event. Registration will be limited to the first 60 students to register. I have had the pleasure of studying with Kathryn several times now, so I can honestly say this is a weekend not to be missed. Sign up now! Register online here.

Workshop Schedule:

Friday, August 17th (6-8pm) Authentic Flow: Set every practice, day and breath with the power of your intention. Tap into what it means for us to ‘aim true’ on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. Then we’ll get out our mats and find our inner archer and physically manifest through asana what it means to be strong, aware and compassionate. Creative sequencing will create discipline with the perfect blend of humor and thoughtfulness. Come join the hunt for our authentic selves. Please bring a strap, block, paper and a pen.

Saturday, August 18th (9-12pm) Flight of the Yogi; Arm Balances: Join Kathryn for a lighthearted workshop of exploration on our hands! This workshop is geared towards both fledglings of arm balances and full grown flyers. We will explore the foundation of arm balancing, the technicalities of leaving the ground on our hands and the playful mindset needed to maintain the balance. We’ll begin with bakasana (crow) and explore other poses such as flying pigeon, side crow, grasshopper, eka pada koundinyasana, handstand, forearm balance and many other variations. Beginners will learn how to enter these poses, advanced practitioners will learn new entries and possibilities. Come with any questions and leave with a refreshed spirit and richer understanding of these amazing postures.

Saturday, August 18th (12:30-5pm) Flight of the Yogi; Inversions: Everyone dreams of flying but fears the chance of a crash and burn. This workshop builds a strong foundation of strength in the mindset and physical body to break through preconceived notions of our abilities. We are gifted beyond our imagination, and this workshop will playful support and encourage your untapped potential to dance on your hands and see the world from a different view. Drop fear and step forward with a smile on your face and love in your heart and you’ll already be lighter and ready to flip it around.

Sunday, August 19th (9-11am) Spice Up Your Practice: Love yoga but feel like you’re in a bit of a slump? Freshen up your routine and add some spice to your mat! This dynamic workshop explores new and exciting Sun Salutation variations, fun transitions, vigorous vinyasa, and new exit strategies. Add life to your yoga practice through an energetic class that gets the pulse and laughter flowing. Come with an open mind, a hungry appetite for excitement, and a towel to mop it all down.
