Resilience and Vulnerability: A Weekend Yoga Workshop with Desiree Rumbaugh (4-Part Session)

Friday, April 19, 2024 • 6:00pm-8:30pm • Session 1
Saturday, April 20, 2024 • 10:00am-12:30pm • Session 2
Saturday, April 20, 2024 • 2:00pm-4:30pm • Session 3

Resilience is effectively facing key moments in our lives—challenge, change, and complexity—and allowing those experiences to enhance us rather than diminish us. Vulnerability is an important and foundational practice of resilience because it allows people to see, know, and understand the adversity we’re facing, along with giving them an opportunity to support us. The physical practice of yoga can help us to cultivate inner strength if we know how to incorporate it in every pose.

What better way to explore these two concepts than a weekend workshop among like-minded people. We hope you will take the time to join us for this spring urban retreat. 

TBY Yoga & The Yoga Effect are happy to welcome Desirée back to the area for this very special visit to our community. She brings 36 years of experience teaching yoga that is also informed by Physical Therapy and Functional Movement Training. If you have ever attended a workshop with her, you know to expect a safe, challenging, welcoming, and playful experience. If this will be your first time, you are in for a treat.

Session 1: Inner Strength, Outer Softness: Standing and seated poses

The focus of this session will be the utilization of deep core strength along with an abundance of breath work. Additionally, the practice will center on hip openers, standing poses, and seated poses to help get people more into their bodies so students can get a visceral understanding of what is being taught.

Session 2:  Flexible and Adaptable: Healthy back and shoulders

This session will teach students how to weave deep core strength into the extension of the spine through the practice of backbends.  Additionally, students will learn to feel and incorporate the upper back strength that comes with both loosening and strengthening around the shoulder blades.

Session 3: Back Body Awareness: Twists and forward bends

This practice will be a deeper exploration into the world of forward bends and twists. Deep core strength will be employed in all of the twists.

Session 4: Full Spectrum Practice:  Neck, Shoulders, and a journey into finding the right side up in the world of upside down

This session focuses primarily on neck and shoulder work.  Additionally, there will be opportunities to remedially explore inversions and arm balances.  Please note that this is a very low-pressure environment. Any inversion or arm balance poses offered will ALWAYS have modifications and adjustments to accommodate everyone who is practicing. Desiree is a master at giving people the opportunity to explore their own potential in a safe and fun way!

You are encouraged to sign up for the entire weekend as the learning is a cumulative experience.
