An All-Levels Workshop with
Sunday, February 5, 2006. 2:00 to 5:00
An all-levels workshop Note: Not appropriate for women who are pregnant or those with wrist and shoulder injuries
Inversions and arm balancing poses are challenging, exciting, rejuvenating for the mind and body and fun.
They encourage the circulation of blood and energy in the body and stimulate the endocrine and immune systems.
Both arm-balancing poses and inversions develop mental and physical strength and flexibility, and challenge you
to move courageously past your perceived limitations. This work of facing fears and moving past old barriers can
have a significant impact in your daily life.
Inversions and arm balancing asanas also require core strength, spaciousness in the body, and an interest in
playing with gravity. In this workshop you will learn the fundamentals of lift-off, moving through the air with grace, and
landing with precision and lightness. Lynne will guide you through some of the basic asanas in Forrest Yoga that
build core awareness, strength, and space. She will also teach advanced techniques for you to explore the edges
of your practice with when doing these asanas. Gravity surfing is fun and exceptionally amazing.
Cost: $35 for current Yoga Now students, $45 for others.
Please register for this workshop. Space is limited. Dropins welcome on a first-come, first-served basis, space permittin
About Lynne Begier
Lynne was first introduced to yoga about 10 years ago on the advice
of her psychiatrist to help her recovery from an eating disorder and
major depression. It was not until some years later when she started
to visit the Kripalu Center in Lenox, MA that her interest began to
blossom much deeper. After completing her initial training at
Kripalu, Lynne began to thirst for knowledge about other styles of
yoga and has explored Bikram, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Jivamukti and
Forrest Yoga. She has studied with Ana Forrest since 2002 and has
completed her intensive teacher training in addition to attending
workshops with Ana on a regular basis. She is committed to teaching
yoga as a healing path and using yoga to access areas of the body
that have shut down due to physical or emotional injury. Lynne is the owner and director of Back Bay Yoga.
