Asanas (poses) are the most common way to practice yoga, but there is so much more goodness to be found in this beautiful and transformative tradition. Our yoga workshops are intended to explore the other sides of yoga – self study, meditation, detachment, and discipline to name a few – and help you integrate them into your everyday life. From awakening your creativity to offering tools to deal with stress and anxiety, our yoga workshops will bring your practice to a whole new level.
New Moon Practice
Cultivating Self Compassion
Practicing self-compassion is treating yourself with the same kindness as you would a dear friend. You will learn several practices that can cultivate self-love, self-acceptance, and well-being. This workshop will include group discussion, gentle movement, guided meditation, and writing exercises.
$20/student, proceeds will be donated to the low-cost clinic at the Center for Creative Resources; a non-profit that provides therapy to under-served populations.
Newbie Yogi Workshop
In a small class setting we’ll break down the most common poses in a yoga class and help each student achieve a balance of effort and ease as they practice. Over two hours, we’ll cover breathing techniques, standing and seated poses, as well as a little bit of yoga philosophy.
Your reward for committing to this 2-hour session? A free week of unlimited yoga following the workshop! $30/person.
Energy Management for Healthy Aging
How are you spending your energy? Healthy choices equal healthy aging. This workshop will provide you with the tools needed to age gracefully and even reverse signs of unhealthy aging. Learning that it is possible to keep a healthy mind and body as we age, we will focus on the impact our choices have on the quality of our energy.
Reclaim your healthier self, close the gap between who you are and who you want to be and learn to recognize the obstacles that stand in the way of your flow. Learn tools to fine tune your body/mind connection while increasing your cognitive capacity through physical exercise.
In this workshop we will work on:
- Biomechanics, improving how our bodies move, releasing tight fascia and increasing mobility.
- Core strengthening techniques, learning how to manage our energy by moving from our “hara” or core center.
- Motor control and neuromuscular re-patterning to reconnect with our bodies.
- Breathing exercises and relaxation techniques to help us get in touch with our natural rhythms and increase our sense of peace.
Through our practice on the yoga mat we can lay the foundation that will help us transform our lives by identifying our values, designing our own path, navigating through obstacles and achieving our goals while sustaining our energy, vitality and joy. All levels welcome. Bring a mat for comfort.
$40/person. Early Bird Rate $35/person until April 30. Members receive 15% discount.
