Santosha Wellness Center in Big Sky is offering a three-day yoga wellness workshop with renowned teacher Sundari Jan. 31-Feb. 2.
Entitled “From the Mat to the Mountain and Back,” the workshop will encourage students to connect “to the source of your own inner radiance, that vibration which reflects your own divinity,” according to information on Santosha’s website.
Sundari has been practicing and teaching for 30 years and specializes in advanced therapeutic health in the art of yoga. She has studied under some of the most influential teachers of yoga, spending her primary years in the Iyengar tradition and former years in Anusara, according to Santosha. Her gift in sensitivity, humor, and expertise holds the highest intention for the students to reveal their own inner beauty and true nature.
Participants can choose to take just one class, several, or all from the following schedule:
Friday ~ 6 – 8 p.m. The Pelvic Floor
Opening the weekend, this class will explore the bridge between the torso and the hips/legs, as well as all the diaphragms through deep hip openers and floor work with the legs. The floor of the pelvis begins every movement and originates all yoga poses.

Generated from the power of the feet, our roots and the presence of the back body, this class will take participants into standing, balancing and asymmetrical poses. Open to all levels.

This class will have an emphasis on deep therapeutics actions for the lower back and knees, with detailed alignments for the feet, knees and hips, and guiding the muscles to release the lower back.

Beyond the strength of any muscle, this class will explore the fluidity and presence of the wave with backbends and forward bends.
