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
Newbie Yogi Workshop
This workshop is designed for brand new students interested in developing a yogapractice. In a small group setting, we’ll break down the most common yoga poses, show you proper alignment, explore modifications, and prepare you to confidently join group classes. We’ll also touch on the anatomy of breath and teach breathing techniques that will support you on and off your mat.
$45/person, includes a week of free yogaclasses at Yogaleena following the workshop.
90-Min Candlelit Yin & Meditation Practice
The autumnal equinox represents not only the start of the fall season, but a time for reflection and evaluation. As we transition into this new season, we aim to leave behind that which isn’t serving us anymore in order to make room for what is. This 90-minute candlelit yin and meditation class will provide the opportunity to slow down and cultivate mindfulness and presence. Through practice one will be able to gain a bit of clarity concerning what must go and what must stay. We’ll end our practice with prasad, an offering of sweet treats to represent the harvest and season ahead.
This Arm Balance Playshop will introduce practitioners to technique that will help them get onto their hands safely, with a goal of longevity for our poses, rather than dramatic expression. The first phase of the Playshop is the 5:45pm Vinyasa Flow class that precedes it; that hour-long class will prepare yogis to balance by working relevant muscle groups, and warming up and stabilizing the joints. That way, we can move right into the heart of our 45-minute arm balance practice: we will establish the foundations for safe alignment in each posture, workshop the poses together, and overcome our fears of flying in a safe, informative, and playful space!
$25 Drop-In for non-members (includes the 5:45pm Vinyasa Class + Playshop)
Herbal Tea Workshop
As the wind picks up and the golden sunlight hours begin to grow shorter in the fall, warm beverages like tea can become an almost permanent fixture in our hands. Slowing down to enjoy a cup of tea can bring a sense of warmth and coziness as well as mental and physical benefits. In this workshop we’ll explore the ritual of making and imbibing herbal teas. We’ll discuss a wide variety of herbs perfect for tea making and their myriad health benefits. Each participant will be able to craft their very own herbal tea blend to take home and enjoy.
Watercolor Holiday Cards
Learn to create beautiful holiday cards with watercolor paints! In this two hour workshop led by my incredibly talented (and adorable) mama, you’ll first gain a solid understanding of watercolor techniques and then make 2 different card designs to take home and share. All supplies will be provided, no prior experience necessary. Space is limited to 5 students, $45/person.
Yoga with Kittens!
Join us for a fun and cuteness-overloaded yoga practice to kitten-inspired tunes on Sunday, October 14th.
The Best Friends organization in Houston will be bringing 8-10 adorable little kittens looking for forever homes to Yogaleena. Students will get to flow alongside these curious and playful friends, and enjoy lots of cuddles/pictures with them after class.
$20/person, portion of the proceeds will go back to Best Friends. This event SOLD OUT fast last month so reserve your spot asap!
