THREE HOUR YOGA INTENSIVE
Saturday, April 6th, 12 – 3pm with Jamie Wright
Awareness, Breath, Balance, Strength, Flexibility and Relaxation
A comprehensive and powerful practice, with some challenge and a deeper experience than the typical “short” class. It’ll go by quickly, but we won’t need to skimp on anything.
Our time will begin with some introspection, pranayama and a slow steady warming, followed by some energetic movement and standing work. Once we’re nice and warm it will be time for some deeper exploration of strength, balance and flexibility. Every part of our bodies will be addressed, including a serious visit to our core. We’ll end with a long cool down and extended Savasana.
CHANNELING THE INNER WARRIOR
Saturday, April 13, 1 – 3pm with Maeve Ryan
Virabhadrasana is not just a pose, it’s a mindset. Learn how to channel more self-confidence through the asana that gives us strength, courage, balance, and the capacity to fearlessly confront challenges in our lives.
In this workshop, we will break down Warriors 1 through 3, work on how to properly align ourselves in each pose, and move through a playful, vigorous, powerful asana practice.
RESTORATIVE YOGA AND AROMATHERAPY
Saturday, April 13th, 4 – 6pm with Maeve Ryan
Enjoy a two-hour workshop that includes a discussion on the benefits of using essential oils in yoga & meditation followed by a restorative asana practice. Students will have the opportunity to smell and apply oils (brands include Young Living, Arbonne, and 21 Drops) to discover which ones aid in calming and/or stimulating the mind and body. This workshop is designed to help you feel more centered, grounded, and relaxed. Beginners welcome.

YAMUNA BODY ROLLING
Saturday, April 27th, 1 – 2:30pm with Sharon Sklar
You will learn to systematically roll on a specific series of balls that range in size from softballs to basketballs. The weight-bearing exercise is great for strengthening bones, releasing muscle tension and bringing blood flow to otherwise stuck, tight areas. There are also extensive techniques for releasing the feet which allow for better support and ease.
FOUNDATIONS IN MINDFULNESS
Saturday, May 18th, 1 – 3:30pm with Meghan Mitchell
We often live on auto-pilot or by default – doing things by rote rather than with intention. We are out of touch with our bodies and emotions, missing most of the moments of our lives. The majority of our days are spent in our heads, completely unaware of what is happening around us.
When we can get in touch with qualities of mindfulness, there is a sense of being more connected, real and alive. Mindfulness is a natural, intuitive state of being that involves connecting and engaging in the world with openness, curiosity and non-judgmental awareness.
