masterclass weekend

with Dice Lida-Klein

I love yoga, and I love yoga-ing. One of my favorite teachers said it best—”Yoga can be a noun, and it can also be a verb.” My journey courses with inspiring ups and transforming downs. There are so many paths, and I know my path is only one of many, full of ideals and practices inspired by others. We live a life capable of being inspired, passionate, let down, spiteful, angry, sad, and best of all…happy. You get the idea. We live in dualities and variations of polarities. We aim for balance, for our neutral, aware that there are many different truths to finding neutral. There are many truths, period.

I was fortunate enough to become a student of yoga in 2007. To be able to share my passion for yoga through teaching has been one of my life’s greatest gifts. It inspires change and growth in my life daily. Yoga allows me to meet a vast and diverse group of people all connected by one great love for yoga & movement. It seems to me that however you get in the door…meditation, Pranayama, Ashtanga, Iyengar, arm balances and inversions, backbends, hip openings, rehabilitation, anatomy, philosophy, subtle body, meridians, chakras, feeling healthy, looking good, vinyasa flow, hot yoga—the list goes on and on—all are a great start to examining your life from a different perspective. Yoga asks us to look into the darker corners of our mind, and it helps us to see the light as well. I am on a constant search to learn more from others so that I may learn more about myself. I can only hope to inspire others like my family, friends and teachers continue to inspire me.

riding the waves.
Friday 22 February, 6:00 - 8:30pm
Sometimes our emotions can take us deeper and higher than our bodies could ever hope to – for better or for worse! It is important to learn how to ride the waves of our emotions rather than sink beneath their overwhelming power. This lesson benefits us both on and off the yoga mat. We bury many complicated emotions in our second chakra, so be prepared to start digging down deep! In this class we will experience a variation of hip openers, inviting those hidden sentiments to come into the light. Breaking down will actually build us up! Be prepared to find your emotional (arm) balance as these hip openers steer us into a world of hip-focused arm balances. Open to all levels of athletic practitioners.
child's play.
Saturday 23 February, 10:00am - 1:00pm
Children explore their world with little hesitation and fear. This is why children can excel at anything if they truly put their mind to it. Can you remember what it was like to be a fearless child? In this practice we revisit our childish ways and get onto our hands, playing upside down in inversions and defying gravity with various arm balances. Expect to challenge your adult mind and channel your inner child, falling down and getting back up. Open to all levels of athletic practitioners.
the abc's of the inverted yoga practice.
Saturday 23 February, 2:30 - 5:30pm
The extraordinary artist M. C. Escher once asked, “Are you really sure that a floor can’t also be a ceiling?” He loved to break boundaries and play with the space around him. This class offers you a similar invitation. Handstand, headstand, and various arm balances urge us to look at the world from a different angle. In this class, we will incorporate strong standing postures, variations from the floor to the sky, and the transitions that occur in between. We will also explore the great mystery of the core center and the bandhas – the most important tools to help you get upside down. Prepare to sweat, laugh, and leave it all on your mat.
the art of backbending - spinal extension vs spinal compression.
Sunday 24 February, 930am - 1230pm
The backbend communicates one of the deepest, most beautiful expressions of an open heart and mind within the yoga practice. Backbends are a paradox of constant oscillation and steady harmony. Because of their complexity, they can easily be misunderstood and poorly executed. In this workshop, we will discover how to achieve health and longevity for the spine through extension versus compression. Practicing basic backbends like upward facing dog and upward facing bow directs our pathway toward more advanced backbends like handstand/forearm balance, scorpion, and hollowback. Expect to open and strengthen your upper back, shoulders, side body, and thoracic and lumbar spine. This class is for all levels!
bryce yoga signature inverted flow.
Sunday 24 February, 2pm - 430pm
Variations of moving meditation characterize all forms of the asana practice. The rhythm of our breath is deeply connected to the movement of our bodies, encouraging us to practice living in the present moment and freeing us from distractions of the past and future. Join Dice in this strenuous, yet enjoyable flow class. You will use the unity of your breath, mind, and body to guide you through surya namaskars, strong standing postures, arm balances and inversions, backbends, twists, and seated folds. Come ready to learn, sweat and enjoy the great adventure of your practice. All levels are welcome!

Whether you’re a total newbie or a veteran yogi looking to refine your practice, this Yoga Alignment workshop is for you. This workshop is designed to create an injury-free, long term yoga practice that starts with proper alignment techniques. Once we understand the basic structure and mechanics of the human body, yoga poses become a lot more efficient.
Barbara will be covering the foundational poses of the yoga practice in detail (These poses aren’t necessarily easy or simple, but they are the key to unlocking all other poses), breaking down key poses, exploring alignment and modifications for your body that will leave you feeling confident to grow your flow in a regular class environment.

You’ll walk away with:

  • A clearer understanding of foundational yoga poses
  • Knowledge of the key alignment points for regularly taught poses
  • Confidence to flow through a dynamic flow class comfortable
  • The ability to modify the practice to suit your body’s structure

This workshop will incorporate theory and discussion, learning about basic anatomy followed by a practice implementing what we have just learned. This workshop is fantastic for those who have never tried yoga before, or those wishing to deepen their knowledge of alignment and modifications for individual body types.
The group is limited to 15 people so that you will have more interactive time and attention with the instructor. We’ll have plenty of time for questions and even more time for fun! Come and meet new people, explore the practice of yoga all in a fun, friendly and supportive environment.
