Instead of heading out to lunch with coworkers or eating at your desk, grab the work clan and recharge with a yoga moving meditation to connect with your breath, body and mind.

OWM Yoga Buffalo Workshops

Weekly workshop schedule & description. Not eligible for Class Passes.

 

First Thursday – Balance Yoga Workshop 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM

Saturday – Iyengar On the Wall Workshop 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM

Want to mix up your yoga practice? Try this yoga workshop that focuses on correct alignment through ropes and anchors. Working with ropes is referred to as Yoga Kurunta (a Kurunta is a puppet in South Indian theater). We will do standing poses, spinal traction, spinal rejuvenation, inversions and lots of creative tricks the clever wall can teach us. The late, great B.K.S. Iyengar used knotted ropes and anchors for improving alignment for more than 70 years. The ropes bring students’ bodies back into alignment in a very gentle way, they act as a physical therapist, chiropractor, and massage therapist in one. Students can feel the correct alignment on the wall, and this translates to the floor to improve their daily yoga.
