Hatha Yoga Immersion Program
with Naomi Gottlieb-Miller
Final weekend–limited space available!
Saturday May 13, 12:30-6:30 pm
Deepen your personal practice and add some new tools to your yoga toolkit in this 20-hour Immersion.
This advanced immersion is intended to enhance your skills as yoga teachers and practitioners through advanced yoga asana and a deepening understanding of anatomy. The more aware we become of how things work, how asanas are built upon the structure of skillful alignment and clear, careful, strong actions, the more powerful we will become as practitioners and the more clear we will be as teachers.
This course will also cultivate the place where yoga asana and yoga philosophy intersect.
Expect powerful asana, lively discussions, and a place where you can play your growing edge on, as well as off, your mat.

Awaken Your Chakras: A 7-Week Series to Explore and Experience
Your chakras are energy points within the body through which the life force (prana) or vital energy move. With a regular yoga practice, we have the capacity to awaken and balance the chakras.
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.
For the full experience, we recommend you plan to attend the entire series.
