Workshops and Special Series
Check out what's happening this month at Pilates Durango. We're pleased to offer special monthly workshops, lectures and series on everything from nerve release techniques, health and wellness classes and meditation.
Creating a Yoga Therapy Home Practice
Join Barbara Metzdorff in this special workshop where you’ll learn a series of Yoga Therapy asana designed specifically for those attending the class that can be used as a home practice or to enhance any athletic practice. Each participant will return a completed Yoga Therapy Intake Form from which the home practice will be created. This workshop is designed as both an experiential learning process and an opportunity to have a deeper understanding of how specific asanas can be beneficial. No prior yoga experience is necessary. Please, bring a pen/pencil. Yoga Therapy Home Practice Asana sheets will be provided.

Barbara Metzdorff, CIAYT, ERYT 500, CRYT
The teaching methodology of Yoga Therapy has been Barbara’s approach to teaching yoga since 2004. She has taught athletes and worked with those recovering from injuries with a focus on improving body mechanics. Integrating breath and movement is at the root of her yoga therapy teaching as it provides an opportunity to develop greater awareness of the body in motion. She recently closed her yoga therapy studio in Santa Fe and moved to Durango with her family.
Yamuna Body Rolling - Center Focus
This month we’ll explore our center by rolling through the muscles of the deep core and spine. Releasing muscles like the psoas, illiacus and obliques can assist in low back pain relief, promote better hip function and support organ health. Because of the routines used in this workshop it is not appropriate for those who are pregnant or for those recovering from recent abdominal surgery. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
