About the Day1Yoga Method Workshops:

These workshops provide meaningful explanation for ALL LEVELS of practitioners regarding the strength and skills toward the development of control and confidence in your vinyasas, PLUS anatomical explanation of exactly how to derive the safest full range of motion from your yoga asanas. While it's preferable to complete the entire workshop series, as the information is cumulative, each workshop can be booked individually. Pricing, registration, and schedule below.

Functional Movement PART 1: The Spine and Pelvis via Symmetrical Postures
6:00pm-8:00pm, Friday, January 24, 2020

The Spine and Pelvis via Symmetrical Postures: Forward Bending and Backward Bending.

Practice: THE METHOD (all levels welcome, it is not necessary to know the Ashtanga series)
10:00am-12:00pm, Saturday, January 25, 2020

The DAY1YOGA Method is taught within the same framework as the traditional Mysore style, meaning that there is one on one instruction and guidance, minus the strict, dogmatic adherence to the Ashtanga sequencing, but rather a practice that utilizes postural assessments and accommodates to each individual student's particular set of needs, injuries, and biases. Considerations and teaching will include: short sequences of asanas; overviews for understanding why postural assessment is so vital for a healthy, safe, and enduring yoga practice; anatomical explanations on functional movement within the yoga practice; optional therapeutic sequences for both mobility and strength.

Functional Movement PART 2: The Hips and Pelvis
1:00pm-3:00pm, Saturday, January 25, 2020

Mobility in the hips and pelvis via Asymmetrical Postures.

Functional Movement PART 3: Shoulder Strength and Scapular Stability
10:00am-12:00pm, Sunday, January 26, 2020

Shoulder Strength and Scapular Stability for the Development of Confidence and Control in the Vinyasas.

Jumping | Lifting | Floating | Flying
1:00pm-3:00pm, Sunday, January 26, 2020

Application of Shoulder Stability Within Vinyasas: This Workshop will provide both explanation and simple, yet effective, exercises that the practitioner can employ within the first 20 minutes of their practice, in sun salutations and standing postures. It will be an opportunity to apply the lessons of Scapular Stability in a safe and accessible format.


Entire Weekend: $175

Single Session: $50 per session (can purchase multiples)

Single Session before December 1st: $40 (can purchase multiples)


Drawn to the elusive peacefulness and glow that so many yoga practitioners seemed to have, while connecting with yogic philosophy, Day Christensen took up the practice of yoga in 2004. Starting out, she took classes that fit her schedule, but quickly became drawn to the Mysore style practice of Ashtanga yoga, where students were taught in a relatively silent room with one on one instruction. There, in this environment, she recognized that the student’s potential for growth super-ceeded what she had experienced in other styles of yoga that utilized the more typical “guided” method of teaching.

It was then that she began to schedule around her yoga practice, and her life of late nights and unhealthy habits did a 180. After immersing herself in Ashtanga and the Mysore method, taking trips to Mysore, India to study where the practice was born within the lineage of those who created it, on her third trip to India, Day was given the blessing to teach as an Authorized Level 2 teacher.

However, shortly after that time, suffering from persistent back pain, Day found that the system with its hierarchy of postures and repetitive movements could actually be more harmful than helpful. Through the process and years of learning to heal and recover from back pain, Day finally was able to break free of the cookie cutter method of giving all students the same sequences of postures meant to be learned and repeated 6 days a week, sometimes for years and years on end with no variation in asanas or movement patterns. With this new perspective due to her own pain caused by repetitive movement, she recognized that the system of learning yoga asanas can be improved: groups of asanas should be given according to each student’s current and developing postural needs. “The how” being the Mysore Method of one on one instruction where each person in the room is able to work according to their own needs, ability, and pace, was and is the most effective way to learn and grow. But “the what” of specific series and order of postures MUST be re-assessed. Thus, The DAY1YOGA Method was born: A tailored and customizable practice, minus posture- or series-hierarchy, (zero delineation between “advanced” and “beginner” students), just students, people with issues, all there for the healing and strengthening modality that yoga should be.
