SPRING WORKSHOP. VINYASA & RESTORATIVE YOGA
Celebrate the beginning of the new season with this revitalizing workshop where we will combine the yin and the yang energies in a 3-hour practice.
The session will begin with the yang energy of the vinyasa, a flowy and dynamic practice designed to restore the vitality within the body and to remove anything that has been stored over the winter but does not serve us anymore. We will work through the coordination between breath and movement practicing extensions and torsions tuning into the expansive spring energy. We will also go through depurative pranayama exercises which will help us unblock the stagnated energy in the body.
The workshop will follow with a restorative yin yoga practice. Over this second part we will hold the postures over extended periods of time in a passive way using all sort of props (blocks, bolsters, belts, blankets, etc.) allowing the body to naturally open and let go of any tensions that might have been stored in the body. In this way we will restore the immunologic system and balance the nervous system regulating the whole body also from the inside.
To seal the session we will end with a guided meditation with the goal of helping us to store renovated energy towards the new season, a time of changes and transformations. This workshop is open to all levels and all attendees will have the possibility of bringing the sequence home so they can keep practicing it on their own.
SADHANA. Build + maintain a personal practice.
20hr CEU with Yoga Alliance.
One of the greatest gifts a yoga practitioner can give themselves is time. Time to be fully present, time to challenge one’s own sense of identity, and time to explore one’s own potential.
Join Tony Lupinacci for a 20hr Training Immersion (20hr CEU with Yoga Alliance) designed to help students create and maintain a daily personal practice. Over the course of this weekend, intensive students will develop practical tools and techniques to take with them in everyday lives. A dedicated sadhana helps students stay grounded and steady, rather than being pulled by the tide of life’s up and downs.
Whether you are a student looking to deepen your practice or a teacher seeking new tools to support your students, this immersion will give you tools that you can carry with you for the rest of your life.

A hollow back by definition is where there is a counter-balance of body weight between the hips and legs vs shoulders and thoracic. Whilst It looks difficult, it’s an accessible shape to use in a yoga practice. This workshop is will teach you how to open up through the thoracic spine and shoulders which is beneficial for anyone practicing backbends, but especially useful for those that naturally bend in the lumbar spine. In this workshop you’ll learn how to open your body in new ways safely in order to achieve a hollow back shape either on your hands, forearms or using a wall. Tom’s techniques and drills stem from both a yoga and a gymnastics back ground, offering an all-encompassing outlook on this skill.
