Workshops

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

Arm Balancing Playshop (series)

Dates: Friday, June 8
Time: 5:45 – 7:45 pm
Instructor:  Bailey Robertson
This Arm Balance Playshop, the first in a series, 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)
$10 for members

YogiSomm Saturday

Dates: Third Saturday, every other month

Instructor:  Monica Townsend

YogiSomm’s mission is to instruct people on the raw utilization of the senses.  When the body and mind are freed from tension, sensory awareness sharpens.  The ability to accurately assess what your senses are experiencing is a skill to be cultivated.  Learning how to methodically taste wine will help you develop a closer relationship with your sense of sight, smell, taste and touch.  Every 3rd Saturday of the month, join in on the fun of slowing down, tuning in and discovering a meaningful connection with your sensorial body.

Includes:

60 min Yin Yoga, followed by a Guided Wine Tasting Flight + Lite Bites

Each month will feature a unique experience of integrative relaxation.
