Bandhas and Breath
The foundations of an integrated yoga
practice involve understanding how and
when to use the Bandhas, energetic locks,
and the breath. Join Iyengar yoga
instructor Meghan Goodman for a slow
but intense practice designed to focus on
the body’s three energetic locks and how
to combine them with the breath in the pose Mahamudra, considered to be the “Great Seal”.
Once understood, these principles can be applied to our entire practice to assist the subtle
flow of energy throughout the whole body.

An Introduction to Yoga in the Ropes
Join Iyengar Yoga instructors Siobhan Sloane-Seale & Meghan Goodman for an afternoon workshop on Saturday October 18th from 2-4:30pm at Yoga on 7th
(156 East 7th Ave – laneway entrance)
This 2.5 hour workshop will teach you how to use the ropes and sling for basic poses such as chest opening, Urdhva Hastasana, standing poses, and also for more complex poses like inversions such as Adho Mukha Vrksasana (handstand preparation) and Sirsasana (headstand in the sling). The ropes teach your body the correct physical actions and therefore help you achieve the most benefits from each pose. There will be time to ask questions during and after the workshop.
Meghan and Siobhan are both yoga instructors and professional dance artists. Between them they have 32 years of yoga practice and 12 years of teaching experience. They completed their Iyengar yoga certification with well over 1300 hours of training each.
