Special Classes/Events

Yoga Nidra

Every 2nd Sunday of the Month

with Jenni Antonicic

6pm – 7pm

Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, is a guided meditation that allows you to slow down mentally and feel better physically.  Since this is a guided meditation  (versus a silent mediation) practice, it makes it a little easier to keep your mind from wondering and less agitation occurs as the teacher takes you through points of focus and lays the groundwork for letting go and relaxing.
No experience necessary.  This is a regularly priced yoga class that happens every 2nd Sunday of the month.

Backbends Workshop

Sunday, June 9th 

1-3pm

with Bethany Kibblesmith

No matter where you are in your asana practice, backbends are an invigorating, complex, and FUN part of the physical yoga practice.  Backbending can be particularly challenging because of the way that our day to day lifestyle so consistently forces our bodies to hunch forward—computer work, driving, and even habitual slouching, all contribute to a body that is almost continually forward folded.

Backbending forces us out of our habits, and sends healthy hormones coursing through our veins. As well, backbends done well can build strength and flexibility simultaneously!

Backbends are sometimes a “fear pose” for people—the rush of adrenal can be overwhelming, or the fears of new injury or worsening an old one might pop up. With proper preparation, modifications, and a balance of lengthening and strengthening, you too can expand your backbending practice and approach new postures in a safe way, with individualized attention, props, and modifications.

All levels welcome.  Workshop is $30.

Trauma & Tension Release Yoga

Saturday, Oct 5th

2-3:30pm

with Danielle Dickinson

Based on the healing technique of T.R.E. (Trauma and Tension Releasing Exercises) from Dr. David Berceli this unique yoga class will incorporate your typical vinyasa flow with a specific focus on fatiguing the leg muscles and lengthening the psoas.  After a 60 minute strong, all levels yoga class, we’ll move into positions that will allow space for neurogenic tremoring.  Class will end with a deeply relaxing savasana (final supine meditation).
