The People’s Yoga is thrilled to welcome NYC teacher Amy Matthews for a regular monthly class on Saturday evenings.

Studying the complex wonder of the body’s systems can help you find different ways to approach your personal yoga and movement practices, hold space, transmit information, and be present to your students and clients. These classes will explore anatomy, kinesiology, physiology and embryology through 30 minute presentations followed by 90 minutes of structured exploration through free movement and yoga. These workshops are open to people who are interested in expanding their understanding of anatomy, kinesiology and physiology, and who want to develop their personal practice and teaching skills in the context of embodiment.

These classes are an opportunity to experience Amy’s unique teaching style that integrates her expertise of anatomy and kinesiology into movement explorations inspired by Laban Movement Analysis, Body-Mind Centering®, Bartenieff, and Yoga.

Tuesday, July 22nd
7-9pm
Northeast Second Studio
Cost: $10 or $9 for People’s Yoga Monthly Unlimited Members
Come explore the passionate, creative, expressive performer and the shy, egotistical, self-absorbed, self-critic. Investigate the balance between the individualized self as evolutionary strategy and the individualized self as egoic pursuit.
The zodiac sign Leo and Leo’s planetary ruler, the Sun, bring us the fixed fire of mid-summer energy.
Everyone has Leo and the sun in their chart somewhere, and these are the places where it’s important for you to be creative, to be seen and to honor your own need for recognition.
What does this mean for you?
Bring your birth chart if you have it!
