The Heart of the Matter:
Asana Studies with Christina Sell

NEW DATE! January 22-24, 2016
(formerly January 29-31)
Venue: Des Moines Onstage • 2124 Grand Ave

Hidden beneath the many instructions we receive in a yoga class is the  invitation to pay attention, to respect one’s limits and to develop one’s abilities intelligently.  While on the surface postural practice is very physical, it also  has subtle,more energetic aspects aimed at the alignment of mind and spirit. More than simply outer contortions, asana practice can point us inward and assist us on a journey of inner discovery and awakening to the Heart of who we are and to the Heart of what matters most to us.

Join Christina Sell for a dynamic weekend of asana studies and personal contemplation designed to help you stretch and strengthen your body and your mind. Expect to sweat, laugh and learn.

  • Friday, 6-8:30pm  Hip Opening and Arm Balancing
  • Saturday, 10am-12:30pm  Standing Postures
  • Saturday, 2:30-5pm Twists and Forward Bends
  • Sunday, 10am-12:30pm Back bends
