Saturday September 30, 2-4 pm

See full details here.
We all need a new perspective on life when things turn upside down.  The inverted asanas help us cultivate just that.  Come spend two hours breaking down the component parts of Adho Mukha Vrksasana (handstand), Pincha Mayurasana (forearm stand), Sirsasana (headstand) and Salamba Sarvangasana (shoulderstand).  Turning your world upside down has never been more fun!  You’ll walk away with having cultivated the strength, courage and joy that can come from doing just that.
Playful mindset welcome.

Getting to the Core of It: Using Your Strength to Sustain you On and Off the Mat

headstand

with Catherine Marquette

Saturday October 28, 2-4 pm

Steady yourself and activate the power of your core–from the inside out!
The definition of core includes “the part of something that is central to its existence”.  This could be realized via a physical practice, such as yoga asana, as we experience how the core lends support in standing poses, opens up in backbends, comes together in balancing postures.  This could also be realized via a more mental practice, such as the yoga yamas and niyamas, or ethical restraints and observances.  Together, these tenants of yoga help to direct our awareness to our center and enable us to act from our core.
