Yoga and Body Image with Melanie Williams
Saturday April 6, 2-4 pm. Register here.
Are you a yoga practitioner struggling to see yourself among media representations of a “yoga body?” Have you avoided yoga or movement because you believed it wasn’t meant for you? Are you curious about how and empowering, adaptive yoga practice could impact your sense of self and your relationship with your body?
In this workshop, we’ll have the chance to explore this relationship in a community environment, drawing on tenants of yoga philosophy, such as non-violence and impermanence, that can change the way we relate to our own bodies for the better, and providing the opportunity to embody these concepts through accessible breath, movement, and meditation practices. Everyone is welcome, especially if you’ve practiced yoga before because you weren’t sure your body would be welcomed!
$35 in advance / $40 at the door. Members save $5 – email us for your discount code.
Starts on April 6. Register now for Weekend 1, April 6-7.

Special Spring Equinox Kundalini Yoga Class
Thursday March 21, 7:15 pm
The Vernal Equinox is the time when the sun enters the Northern Hemisphere once again, bringing us longer days and more light. It’s a day in which we can seek – and maybe find – balance. It’s an opportunity to connect with our inner light and awaken the inner goddess.
This Thursday is also the final day of our Letting Go Series, so we will dedicate the evening class to consciously letting go of what hasn’t been serving us and to cleanse our psyches, our minds, our bodies and our souls.
Join us for this wonderful Kundalini Yoga class with a Gong Bath Meditation.
No extra costs or registration – just use your class cards.
Sunday April 7, 5-7:30 am
Join us during the Amrit Vela, the still hours before the sun rises, when our awareness is heightened and our meditation practice is deepened. We start at 5 am with a recitation of Japji, then continue with a Kundalini Yoga kriya, and finish with 62 minutes of chanting.
We start at 5 am sharp, and front door will be locked at about 5:30 am.
The Aquarian Sadhana practice will leave you feeling great all day!
Free and open to all.
Yoga for Back Pain and Core Strengthening with Megan Davis
Tuesdays 6:15-7:30 pm
Lower back pain is one of the most common injuries/complaints. Much of our low back pain comes from poor posture and misuse/overuse of particular muscles through unbalanced and repetitive motion.
In this 4 part series, we will focus on:
- using the feet and the legs to activate core stability muscles
- aligning and strengthening the core stability muscles to support the lower back
- stretching muscles to decompress the lumbar spine
This class is appropriate for students of all levels. Students with injuries are welcome and modifications will be given.
Cost: $60 for all 4 weeks/$40 for members
Our first Lighthouse Book Club will meet on Saturday May 11, 11:45 am.
Book: The Wisdom of Yoga by Stephen Cope
Join us for a community gathering to share a potluck lunch and book discussion. Open to all – even if you haven’t had a chance to read the book, we invite you to join us to glean the bits of yoga wisdom from the discussion.
“The Wisdom of Yoga” is a highly readable book that brings the Yoga Sutras to life.
“Stephen Cope unlocks the teachings of the Yogasutra by showing them at work in the lives of a group of friends and fellow yoga students who are confronting the full modern catastrophe of careers, relationships, and dysfunctional family dynamics. Interweaving their daily dilemmas with insights from modern psychology, neuroscience, religion, and philosophy, he shows the astonishing relevance and practicality of this timeless psychology of awakening.”
Vegetarian pot-luck lunch and book discussion, led by LYC teacher Suzanne Henley. Lunch from 11:45 to 12:30 and book discussion from 12:30-2 pm. Free, please bring a dish to share.
Full Moon Meditation
Stay tuned for our next Full Moon Meditation!
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 Wednesday March 20 as part of our regularly schedule 7:35 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.
