Have you ever wished you had more time to play around with that pose you’re working on? Ever yearned for the space to try some new stuff? The IPY Asana Club is where you want to be! We’ll start out with a short warm up, then it’s play time: grab a wall and practice some inversions, get some help with that arm balance you you saw someone do in class, or flag down a teacher if you’d like something looked at or need a spot.
It’s an open practice where you can try some new stuff out and not have to worry about catching back up with a class or looking pretty. We flex, we fall, we have fun at Asana Club!

Do you have Yoga Pose Ponderings? Curious about how to go from 3-legged dog to flip dog? Wondering how to build strength for Crow… or how to set up Crow? Once a month, following the Saturday 11:30amBasics Class, Gretchen will offer a Karma (free & fun) session to answer your questions
“What if I should fall right through the center of the earth…oh, and come out the other side, where people walk upside-down?”
Have you ever been, like Alice in Wonderland, curious about inversions – shoulder stand, headstand, handstand, and forearm balance? This workshop will offer drills to help you build arm, shoulder, and core strength and will guide your preparation to safely enter and exit these upside-down postures. Come play and learn in a safe, supportive environment!
Balance begins with a strong foundation. In this workshop, we will start by finding stabilization through our feet, ankles, legs, and core. As we move through various poses, we will also talk about supporting elements, such as drishti (gaze) and breath. Whether you’re a beginner or a more advanced student, this workshop will help you improve your confidence in standing balance poses.
Whether you are new to yoga, coming back from an injury, or looking to deepen your practice, this workshop will help you find modifications and variations to meet your needs.
