Literally and metaphorically the diversity of yoga experiences offered across this country could leave a person standing on her head. For many, yoga is an exacting physical and spiritual discipline, a journey inward that leads to an ineffable described as “enlightenment”; for others, the practice is simply a hip way to stay fit and reduce stress.

And for Gina Caputo?

For this wild and passionate yogini and uplifting, empathetic instructor, her clear and playful approach to a practice is a way for her students to find their edge, open up their minds, and fearlessly go where they have not gone before.

A Telluride Yoga Fest regular, Gina returns to town to teach a series of workshops at the Telluride Yoga Center as follows:

DARK SIDE OF THE MOON- HIP OPENERS WITH PINK FLOYD
Friday, March 23rd
5:30-7 p.m.
$25

Gina’s creative and deep slow-flow set to the ethereal sounds of Pink Floyd will be a journey to the yoga side of the moon. Hip liberation-focused standing poses will give way to all four types of earthy hip openers that will leave you comfortably numb for savasana. (Afterwards, students can attend an optional après as a group!)

INTEGRATED VINYASA EXPLORATORIUM
Saturday March 24th
9-10:30 a.m.
Local’s Love – Drop-ins for $18 and Punch Cards are Welcome

Gina’s style of yoga is based in the union of polarities, the intended philosophical root of all HaTha Yoga forms practiced today. The experience emphasizes the meeting points (yoga) of alignment and flow, anatomy and energetics, focus and release, contraction and expansion, work and play, singularity and community. It’s a celebration of wholeness. Everyone is bound to walk away with an ah haa or two and contentment in their hearts.

ASANA 2.0 ~ NEXT LEVEL TEACHING
Saturday, March 24
11:30am – 3:30pm
(Includes Sunday, March 25 10-11:30 a.m.)
$108

We’ve come a long way scientifically since the advent of Krishnamacharya’s yoga in the 1940s and an even longer way since Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. The teacher’s intensive honors the spirit and philosophy of the practices AND acknowledges the continually evolving science of the human body-mind complex.

The workshop explores the science of strengthening and stretching; looks “under the hood” at stress; gets insight into how our brains work; and finds the union between them and the Eight Limbed Path of Yoga.

The class counts for 5.5 hours of Continuing Education Units for Registered Yoga Teachers through Yoga Alliance. Attendees receive a certificate of completion for the course through the Colorado School of Yoga.

Registration for Saturday workshop (includes Sunday morning vinyasa) is through the Colorado School of Yoga.
