Yoga for Core Stability with Megan Davis
Fridays June 15, 22 & 29, 6:30-7:45 pm
Our core (the axial myofascial meridian) includes the deepest structures of the body and assures our alignment and stability. The myofascial core begins in the sole of the foot and extends through the body all the way up to the neck and head.
This 3-part workshop is aimed at decreasing tension and increasing alignment and strength through this central axis of the body by tapping into and developing your core stability to improve functional movement and balance. We will use a combination of yoga pose variations and myofascial release techniques to increase strength and flexibility and to affect positive change on proprioception.
General: $50 / Members: $25
To register, purchase the Core Stability class card here.
Full Moon Meditation
Thursday June 28, 8:30 pm
The gravitation pull of the full moon is said to heighten the meditation experience. The moon has an effect on the water content of the body, and through meditation we can harness that power and make it work for us.
Join us for a 31-minute Full Moon Meditation on Monday April 30, immediately following the 7:15 pm Kundalini Yoga class. Can’t make it to class? The doors will open for the meditation at about 8:25 pm. (Please note that the doors will be locked once the meditation starts).
All levels, no meditation experience is required. Sign up here.

Yoga for Movers and Tots is an opportunity for crawlers, movers, and preschoolers to begin to explore yoga – alongside their parent or caregiver – in a caring, safe, and FUN environment.

Each class incorporates repetition, social interaction, music, fun with props … and always play! Duration of class is one hour, with dedicated time for free play built into the first 10 minutes of class. Siblings welcome. Caregivers are expected to fully participate in class, but no prior yoga experience is required for either caregivers or children. Be prepared to join the action!
Journey Through the Chakras
Thursdays 7:15-8:45 pm
July 12-August 23
In this 7-week Kundalini Yoga series, we will explore the physical, spiritual and emotional aspects of each chakra. Every class will include a brief introduction to the chakra as well as a kriya and meditation designed to awaken that specific energy center.
You’ll have the opportunity to learn about each chakra individually while experiencing how they inter-relate and intersect. We’re holistic beings, so while it’s important to understand the various parts that make us who we are, we also must remember that we’re greater than the sum of our parts. Understanding the chakras is a gateway to understanding ourselves.
Use your class card or register for the full series by purchasing our Chakra Series card. Please note that these classes tend to sell out so please pre-register to guarantee your space.
$105 for all 7 classes / members: no additional charge
‘I Am, I Am’: Countering the Effects of ‘Weathering’ in Our Bodies, Lives, and Communities
In this six-week workshop—open to Women of Color and Allies—we’ll dig in, get deep, and work together to heal from the corrosive effects of weathering, a term experts use to describe the wear-and-tear chronic, every day, race and gender-based stress puts on our bodies.
Research suggests that weathering can even impact us on a cellular level and might account for certain health vulnerabilities in our population, such as hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, and an increased susceptibility to inflammation and other infections.
No yoga or meditation experience is necessary. The only flexibility required is of the mind.
To register, purchase “Weathering Series” class card here.
Sundays 6:45 – 8:15 pm, April 15 to May 27
Cost: $90 for all 6 weeks
Instructor: Emily Bond
Baby and Me Yoga
Teacher: Meredith McCullough
Stay tuned for our next session.

Most appropriate from 6-weeks postpartum until baby is mobile. No previous yoga experience necessary. Please bring a receiving blanket and maybe a small toy each week. Also note that babies are always welcome in this space where sleeping, feeding, and even crying are legitimate ways to participate in class, so please bring whatever else you need to be comfortable.

Family Kundalini Yoga
Join us for this special class that will give your kids an opportunity to experience the benefits of Kundalini Yoga alongside parents and caregivers, who practice with them. While the class will be taught as a “normal” Kundalini Yoga class, the Kriyas will allow for shorter holding times and modifications when needed, so that everyone can stay together, physically and mentally. We’ll incorporate some fun partner warm-ups along with other fun activities to keep the young ones engaged!
