Motherless Mother’s Day: A Gathering and Practice

This time of year can bring up a lot for those of us that have lost our moms. Whether it was years ago or weeks ago, your mom or a mother-like figure, from illness or age, a long-time coming or sudden… it hurts us in profound ways. And the onslaught of advertising and social media posts like “bring mom for brunch” to “#blessed to spend Mother’s Day with my best friend and mom”… it can feel like too much to endure. I feel you, and I want to celebrate our mamas together. Join me for a gentle yoga practice (no yoga experience necessary), a little journaling, and treasured time together with women that truly know how you feel. I am not alone, you are not alone, we are not alone.

4 Week Alignment Series

Join Jodie Hlavachek

In this 4 week vinyasa alignment series class, we'll break down several yoga poses (asanas) in order to give you a better understanding of safe, proper alignment. Vinyasa classes often move quickly from pose to pose, leaving practitioners wondering if they are holding their bodies in space properly in each pose. This class will offer that focus on that alignment knowledge, using an embodied practice to learn. Warrior 1, 2,  and 3, side angle, triangle, chatturanga dandasana, plank, upward dog, downward dog, cobra, tree pose, lunges, bridge (perhaps moving in the direction of full wheel) are just to name a few of the poses we'll focus on in order to gain a deeper understanding of how to hold our bodies. This series is perfect for new beginners, those relatively new to vinyasa classes who are unsure if they are doing the poses properly, or even for those longer-practicing yogis who would like to get back to basics and practice their alignment.

Join Jodie in her Intro workshop. Remember, this is offered 2 times this winter. Be sure to check out her other workshops too!

Ayurveda is a holistic system of healing that originated over 5000 years ago in India and is still practiced there today. This sister science to yoga, literally translated as the 'science of life' provides practical tools, using lifestyle and dietary practices as medicine, to bring us to our optimal state of health and wellbeing. Taking into account that each individual person is unique, each treatment plan designed is specific to that person's unique constitution. A holistic approach to healing, Ayurveda treats mind, body and spirit to bring each person back to her natural state of balance and ease.

In this workshop, you will gain knowledge and insight into the wisdom of this ancient health system and some of its practices, an introduction to herbalism and making herbal formulas, and will learn how to make solar-infused herbal oils to take home with you! In this hands-on experiential workshop, you will learn how to formulate herbal blends to infuse into oils that have specific healing actions on the body. Using the sun to infuse the active compounds of the herbs to create a medicated oil, the oil can then be used for a multitude of purposes – self-oil massage, cooking, or to make lips balms or salves for skin care!

Do you think of balancing poses you wish to improve, soreness after a day of walking, or growing bunions? Your feet are your literal foundation, not a hindrance to your happiness!

In this workshop, we'll work to strengthen and mobilize your feet (and the brain that controls them). Part lecture, part lab, come ready to learn about the structure of your feet as we move through exercises testing their connection to your brain. 

The rest of your body will be glad you did, too!

Somatics 101

Join Sam Sharkey for Somatics

Join Sam Sharkey for Somatics

Somatics is the practice of using your brain (awareness) to control your muscles (body).

What muscles actually turn on when you do an Airplane pose? Can those same muscles truly relaxed in a Child's pose? And most importantly for your health, can those muscles move easily between a state of effort and a state of ease?

Somatics teaches us greater control along the whole spectrum of movement and exercise.  Come prepared for yoga class (lose clothing, open mind) and you'll be led through a series of exercises that ask you to sense your body and control small movements - it's more difficult than it sounds!

If you want to connect to your body, practice your patience, and dive into your internal sensory experience, come try Somatics.

All levels welcome :)
