Create Your Happy Body Part 1 – Online

with Hope Mell, RYT 500, ATT

October 5 - 26, 2021

Tuesdays: Oct. 5, 12, 19, and 26

How are you faring these days? Are you caring for your body and mind? Are you stiff and sore or flexible and flourishing?

We are gently moving out of a pandemic, or so we hope. There are still restrictions, and still the Covid virus is causing much pain and suffering. What to do during this challenging time? Get up and move!

Join Hope Mell, a movement specialist, for an online program to explore various movement practices that will make your body happy. Using the tools of Alexander Technique and Pavanmuktasana (Joint Freeing Series), you will be guided in a practice that will transform your movement. The choice to never again move the same, painful way is yours.

Live sessions with Hope on Tuesday evenings:

  • Oct. 5 and 12 at 6–9 pm ET (the first two sessions are longer to include Q&A)
  • Oct. 19 and 26 at 6–8:30 pm ET

This workshop will include digital printouts and bonus Joint Freeing Series Practice Videos .

You will have access to the video recordings for 6 weeks after the program ends, until December 7, 2021.

In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Online Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET and access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.

Continuing Education (CE) Opportunities

This Part 1 program will give you a foundation for your practice, while Part 2 (which will be offered in March 2022) will cover therapeutics and a deeper study of anatomy.

I have easily been able to incorporate these moves into my daily life and I’m already seeing changes in my body. Hope is also a very caring and informative teacher who takes the time to address any questions or concerns for each person. Great class! — Lisa Powers

Hope’s class on joint freeing has taught me movements and techniques that will help me for the rest of my life. Just being with Hope and the other participants during the class was a very positive caring community experience. Add on the physical techniques and it’s a great combo, so glad to have been able to participate. Thank you to all. — Karen Thomas
