Create your own Mala for jewelry and meditation! Join "Mala Man Mike" for a fun afternoon of Mala making at UpDog Yoga. Mala's have been used by men and women in yoga, meditation and prayer for centuries and as jewelry in modern times. Malas can be made from gemstones that match the intention of your practice, and often serve as a reminder of affirmations. Mala making is fun, creative, relaxing and creating them can be a meditative experience in and of itself! Mike will explain the use and benefits of malas as a meditation aid and how to select and use a mantra with the Mala. He will teach how to hand make and string malas together from selected beads in order to personalize it with the students very own style. A wide selection of Mala beads, tassels and charms will be provided for students to choose from in creating their Mala, and they can also bring in any beads or other personal trinkets they would like to include in their Mala. Once they've selected their items, Mala Mike is a pro at helping students assemble, size and string the Mala to fit. He will also teach proper Mala use, care and repair.

MELT Method for yoga and physical therapy: certified MELT instructor, Stephanie Howard, presents a MELT Workshop for Yoga and Physical Therapy at UpDog Yoga Rochester in an interactive, supportive, workshop environment, featuring techniques from The New York Times best selling book "The MELT Method." Take your yoga practice or other fitness routines to the next level and learn how to avoid common injuries. While yoga and other forms of physical exercise can improve flexibility and muscular strength, it can also cause compensation, compression and even pain if done incorrectly and repetitively. MELT is a simple, easy self-treatment technique that directly affects the part of your body commonly stressed during yoga or physical exercise-your connective tissue. Better than modifying postures as we age, we can learn how to truly return our body to its ideal state. This session will focus on how to rebalance your nervous system and rehydrate your connective tissue, which surrounds muscles and joints. Learn how treated this tissue can improve your alignment, strength and even your breath. The MELT Method is a perfect complement to yoga, whether you are just beginning or have practiced for years. No prior MELT nor yoga experience required. MELT directly addresses the body systems in a way no self treatment can. You'll notice results immediately!
