Deep: A Summer Weekend of Yoga


Saturday & Sunday,
July 14 & 15, 
at the Winsor School


Cited by Yoga Journal as “one of yoga’s most compelling and distinctive voices”, Barbara Benagh’s way of practicing yoga asana has evolved into an inquiry that draws attention more to the path than the destination. She has also slowed the practice way down, allowing for a flow that offers an opportunity to dwell in the potent sensation of action, reaction, and adaptability in an increasingly nuanced way.

Barbara's style is unhurried, alignment-based and rich with story. Her voice and cues carry students into the deep currents of movement that ripple through the whole body on the rhythm of breathing and the echo of the body’s memory of its aquatic origins in the sea.

Full Weekend: $225

This workshop will be held offsite at the Winsor School, 102 Pilgrim Rd., Boston, MA 02215.
No props will be available so please come prepared with a mat, blanket, block, and strap.

At this time, registration is for the entire weekend only.
