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

Friday Philosophy Series

Dates: Fridays, August 3, 10, 17
Time: 7:00-9pm
Instructor:  Carolina Vennie
What exactly is the philosophy behind the poses we do in yoga class? Where did yoga come from and how is it different than Hinduism, Buddhism, or other religions? How has the practice changed from its inception to what we call yoga today? What are the Yoga Sutras, the Bhagavad Gita, and are they still relevant to modern life?
We’ll answer all of these questions and more in our Philosophy Fridays series kicking off in August! Join us for cozy evenings of tea, wisdom, and connection as we dive deep into the heart of the practice that brings us together on our mats.
$25 drop-in, $10 for YL members

Arm Balancing Playshop (series)

Dates: Friday, August 24
Time: 5:45 – 7:45 pm
Instructor:  Bailey Robertson
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)
$10 for members
