Here are descriptions of the six classes Paul and Suzee will present at the True Nature Festival, May 24 and 25.

1. Liver and Gall Bladder Meridians: opening the hips

Opening the hips is important for seated meditation and for practicing yoga asana without injury. But opening the hips presents the biggest challenge to many students due to the shape of their bones.This course helps students find variations of standard poses best suited to their unique body, including alternative poses and the use of props.

2. Chakra Meditation

Ki flow, emotions, and psychology are as unique to each person as their bodies. Yogis have developed a variety of techniques to help students find what works best for them. This class presents a series of meditation techniques focused on the chakras. This class compares chanting aloud with chanting mentally and practicing breathing exercises that are yin and yang to each other.

3. Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is the practice of floor poses held for several minutes at a time. It induces a relaxed physical and mental state and is yin to the yang of vinyasa practice. Yin yoga targets the deep connective tissues of the hips, thighs and spine. It is an effective way to open the body, feel ki movement, and prepare for meditation.

4. The Bones of Yoga: pelvis and legs.

Everyones bones are different! With the help of slideshow and demonstration we explore the unique shape and proportion of peoples bones. By doing simple tests on each other we discover the wide range of skeletal variation in our classmates and how these variations affect each students yoga practice.

5. The Bones of Yoga: shoulders and arms.
