These are mixed-level classes suitable for all dedicated yoga students with an open mind and playful attitude.

How can we cultivate resilience? Playful practice can help. Play by nature introduces variability, because play can have elements of the unpredictable and the unexpected, just like life. Through play we explore different ways of moving, responding, behaving. When there is an element of play involved in practice we are more apt to give ourselves permission to explore, try things different ways, and become better motor learners, and better learners in general. Being able to do things different ways leads to a more resilience adaptable body and mind.

Carrie Owerko has been teaching yoga and exploring the relationship between body, breath and mind for several years. She holds a Senior Intermediate Iyengar teaching credential and continues her studies with the Iyengar family by traveling to India on a regular basis, as well as by continuous and in-depth studies with her yoga teacher, Patricia Walden. Curiosity, openness, and affection are of the utmost importance in her approach to Iyengar Yoga, as is the integration of science, yoga philosophy, and the poetic imagination in the yoga practice. Most importantly, she loves to explore the relationship of discipline and playfulness and is a firm believer in the power of controlled folly.
