FUN & FIERCE FITNESS FLOW
Sunday, December 8th, 7:30-8:45am with Natalie Spadaccino
Fierce: Showing a heartfelt and powerful intensity.
Mindfulness, breath, movement in rhythm! Fierce Flow will challenge your body and your mind with a “heartfelt and powerful intensity”!
Feel the music and let it guide you into vigorous movement patterns, with repetition and constant flow. This is not about going fast, but being present and aware of your entire body, while flowing progressively from one movement pattern to the next.
We will begin with a short discussion and mindful preparation; energetic, full-body rhythmic movement will follow, concluding in a restorative stretch and relaxation. This special class is designed to motivate, invigorate and restore! Joyful movement that is just plain fun!

SPRING CLEANING WITH AYURVEDA: Balancing Kapha
Sunday, February 16th, 12:30-2:30pm with Loli Arosemena
Join Loli for an Ayurvedic Workshop to bring vitality into the season of Spring.
In the ayurvedic system of health, the Kapha season starts out in cold/wet March, then flowers into Spring, the season of growth. Many people can feel the effects of Kapha in their respiratory system as an increase in seasonal allergies and catching colds. In order to stay balanced and healthy, we must place extra attention on our body’s natural healing capacities in order to feel refreshed and renewed, rather than carrying the heavy, sluggish energy of winter into spring.
Learn how to adjust your lifestyle, diet and yoga practice to detox the body, cultivate a sense of renewal, and create optimal wellbeing. Enjoy a purifying and energizing yoga practice to clear Kapha and maintain vibrant health. Take home different ayurvedic and yogic spring cleansing practices to suit your constitution.
Complementary Ayurvedic tea and treats included!
