October 4th | Happy Hips Part II | Ft Lauderdale Tree House

Happy Hips Part II
with Ernesto Bustamante

“Grounded, Connected & Refined”

Our joints can easily get creaking, popping, and wheezing under the stress of their loads.  Our hips in particular suffer— so much so that people eventually need hip-replacement surgery.

In this workshop we’ll focus on two important sets of muscles: the adductors (muscles of the inner thigh and groin that draw the legs toward the midline of the body) and the abductors (muscles of the outer hip that move the thighs apart).  In addition, we will focus on selective postures that will help you regain balance.

Balancing the tone of these two sets of muscles will aid in preventing injuries and bring a new awareness of operating the legs, hip joints, and pelvis. This deeper level of awareness begins with a simple, yet challenging standing posture – Tadasana (Mountain Pose).

October 11th | Jivamukti Yoga: A Path to Enlightenment | Miami Beach Tree House

Jivamukti Yoga: A Path to Enlightenment
with Katie Turrisi

As a path to enlightenment through compassion for all beings, the Jivamukti Yoga practice of asana is more than a mere physical exercise to keep one’s body fit or to increase strength or flexibility. Based on the original meaning of the word asana as “seat, connection” – as in relationship to the earth – it is a way to improve one’s relationship to all others, dissolving the sense of separateness and leading to the realization of the oneness of being. Explore the Jivamukti method as expressed through five its elements: Music, Scripture, Devotion, Non-Violence, and Meditation.
