Advancing The Sumits Sequence
Saturday, March 9th, 2:00pm-4:30pm
$20 Per Person registration
Our bodies are so amazing because as we place more demand on our tissues, they are stimulated to adapt and get stronger, making our whole body more resilient over time. Incrementally adding manageable challenges to our routine can effectively prevent long term yoga practitioners from injury and even encourage longevity/long-term health. For this reason, we benefit from adding variation to our practice.
Whether you’ve been coming to Sumits for years, or are just curious about adding some flare to your flow, this workshop will offer the opportunity for you to take it to the next level.
In the Advancing the Sumits Sequence workshop, Christa will walk you through where and how in the sequence you can add twists, binds, jumps, and active stretching to deepen your practice and strengthen the mind/body.
An understanding of the Sumits Sequence is highly recommended.

Congrats to our FEBRUARY student of the month
Student of the Month: Jeff
"My interest in yoga is based, in large part, in my search for a way to keep doing the things I enjoy doing and to repair some of the long-term wear and tear that I’ve caused my body over the years. Two decades of an active-duty Army career, much of which was spent jumping from planes (and landing..ouch) coupled with several marathons and countless hours in weight rooms (never ever stretching) had left me with what I’d come to believe was the “typical” aches and pains that come with age and a lifetime of doing crazy stuff.”
"My flexibility has dramatically improved, my balance is much better and, most of all, those aches and pains are essentially history! Yoga is part of my daily routine now and my only regret is not having started sooner! ."
