Retreat Details

Activated Asana is a Skillful Movement Practice – the sweet spot where modern movement science and yoga meet. Through a movement system called “organization & activation” we maximize healthy movement mechanics and develop Skillful Movement with a long term goal of High Performance Aging. Postures are very accessible and meet your body where it’s at. We will learn how to build stability and strength, increase our range of motion over time, prevent injury, achieve greater body and breath awareness, enjoy improved mental health and life balance and, perhaps, discover yoga and meditation as a personal place of sanctuary. 

Framework #1: Skillful Movement & High Performance Aging 
 A look into the vast world of Movement Science, delivered in a context that makes sense to yogis. What’s the difference between skillful movement and exercise? What decisions can you make today that will set up your later years for a life of independence and High Performance Aging?

Framework #2: The Law of Stress & Rest - Injury-free Yoga! 
Believe it or not, yoga can lead to injury! This workshop will cover everything you need to know about the types of injuries yogis get, why they get them, and most importantly – how to stay out of the injury hole in the first place!

Framework #3: The Law of Priority - Stability First!
The Law of Priority is a basic guiding principle of Activated Asana that is like getting the keys to the kingdom! Come find out why applying this law will make you better at yoga and any other activity you do!

Barbara's Activated Asana retreat was simply amazing. ★★★★★
“It is a great experience for anyone interested in understanding how muscles work in our bodies and how we can activate them and protect ourselves from injury when exercising. The retreat is a mixture of workshop learning as well as active practice. This knowledge has improved the way I move throughout the day as well as how to practice my yoga and other activities without injuring myself. Barbara's music was a special addition to the course. Participants don't have to be practicing a lot of yoga to learn and benefit from this retreat. You just need a desire to improve your body strength in a healthy way to make your life the best it can be. I highly recommend this retreat.”
Naomi Erickson - July 2023
