Healing Workshops This Spring at Riverstone Yoga

Melt workshop

This spring 2015, Riverstone Yoga in Tarrytown, NY, is offering two special workshops focused on healing. In March, the studio will offer its first Melt: Roll Away the Pain workshop, and in April, Dr. Loren Fishman will return to Riverstone for an afternoon of Healing Yoga, a selection of yoga exercises used to treat common ailments.

The Melt workshop will be held March 14 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. “Melt is a simple technique that uses soft foam rollers and foot and hand balls to help you relieve stress and inflammation in the body by rehydrating the connective tissue,” says Patricia Fischer Donohue, owner and director of Riverstone Yoga. The cost is $30. Pre-registration required. In his Healing Yoga workshop on April 19, Fishman will review the underlying anatomy of common conditions and explain how yoga poses can help correct those issues and relieve symptoms. “This workshop is suitable for anyone suffering from these ailments as well as anyone working with people who might have them,” Donohue says. Yoga experience is not required. The cost is $115 in advance or $145 the day of. Pre-registration is recommended.

Riverstone Yoga also offers Yoga Nidra Meditation the third Sunday of every month at 7:30 p.m. with Akiva. “Yoga Nidra is known as yoga sleep,” Donohue says. “It combines light yoga moves that prepare you for your guided meditation.” Bolster, blankets and props will be provided. Pre-registration is recommended. The cost is $28.

Riverstone Yoga is located at 2 Hudson View Way, Tarrytown, NY. For more information, call 914.332.YOGA (9642) or visit
