Physical Origami/Folding/Unfolding with David Regelin
YogaWorks Back Bay – PHYSICAL ORIGAMI/FOLDING/UNFOLDING with David Regelin $45 There are only so many ways in which the body is designed to fold. Learn unique and progressive sequences that exemplify how the body is made to fit together. We begin by examining some of the most foundational postures that are necessary to progress towards the vast array of bound and folded yoga postures that one might one day practice. We continue by putting these together into sequences that are worth practicing in repetition. Bio: David Regelin is a traveling yoga teacher, he is based in New York City. David is a powerful voice, an eloquent and skillful teacher who is sought after for his workshops and teacher's intensives. His unique talent for simple yet precise articulation of form and technique, echo in the bodies and minds of his students. As a young teacher, David was at the forefront of what became a popular trend of choreographed vinyasa classes to the sound of live music. He created the "Multi-Intenso" experience, a class that garnered a cult following in New York City. "Multi-Intenso" was a technique based, athletic and dynamic style of yoga centered around handstands. David's reflective nature and incessant personal investigation into the potential transformative powers that a yoga practice can give, eventually led him to a more comprehensive approach to how physical form relates to psychological and emotional states. Inclined toward the mystical and timeless, greatly influenced by intensive study with Nevine Michaan, David's practice and teaching has evolved into a more refined adaptation of how an asana (postural) practice can instigate profound and often therapeutic change. Workshops are non-refundable. A studio credit maybe given if canceled 72 hours in advance. If cancelled with less than 72 hours notice no refund of any kind will be given. Any cancellation notice must be given in writing to danak@yogaworks.com. No other refunds or credits are available under any circumstances.

The McIntire District in the 17th Century
Essex National Heritage Area – A lecture by David Moffat, Salem Historical Society. Scheduling Note: At 12:45 PM, Salem Food Tours will present fresh spices and sweeteners used in early Colonial cooking. Lecture at 1 PM. Hamilton Hall in Salem is widely recognized as one of the most important Federal buildings in America. It was designed in 1805 by the famous architect and master woodcarver, Samuel McIntire, and has been in use as an assembly hall for cultural and social events for over two hundred years. Long before Samuel McIntire was born, the area which is today the McIntire District was the fringe of downtown Salem, the area between the populous Salem Town and the Common Pasture and Salem Village beyond. Who lived in this part of town and what did the landscape look like? What traces remain in the McIntire District today of this early era of Salem’s history? This lecture will briefly examine patterns of land-use in Salem, some of the personalities of the district such as the angry Quaker Matthew Maule, and the Broad Street Cemetery, the Friends Cemetery, Hamilton Hall and the Pickering House. David Moffat has worked at The House of the Seven Gables since 2012 as a senior tour guide and lead researcher. In his work there, he has co-authored three exhibits and two exhibit companions. He is a founding board member of The Salem Historical Society and their lead historian. He is also the Editor-in-Chief of The Essex Genealogist, a journal dedicated to the study of the genealogy of Essex County, Massachusetts and a board member of Historic Salem, Inc.
