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!

Please bring a pair of your comfiest socks (not the holey ones, though)! Plantar fasciitis and all levels welcome :)

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 :)

                                                 Healthy Bones - Better Life with Kelli Biehle

Learn to use yoga postures to strengthen your bones, build muscle, and improve posture and balance.

As we age, our bones become more brittle and we lose muscle. But we can slow that down and even reverse some of those effects, with yoga. Join Kelli to learn how to use yoga postures to strengthen your bones, build muscle, and improve posture and balance. We will be specifically using concepts and poses researched by Loren Fishman, MD.  This research has been published in books, online and in various news outlets. Kelli attended training with Dr. Fishman last summer and is eager to share her knowledge with our community.

During this workshop, we will discuss:

  •  The definitions and effects of osteoporosis and frailty syndrome.

  • Briefly examine the science behind how yoga acts as preventative medicine.

  • Learn two sequences of yoga postures you can do at home to build bone and muscle strength.

  • Learn how to adapt postures in any class to build bone and muscle strength.

This workshop is perfect for anyone 50+ years and anyone is concerned about having to go on medication to prevent osteoporosis. If you ever worry about falling and breaking a bone as you age or are looking to maintain your mobility as long as possible, this workshop is perfect for you.

Our Summer Focus ~ "The Yamas and Niyamas: Exploring Yoga's Ethical Practice"

"The Yamas and Niyamas" by Deborah Adele, is the topic of discussion and action for the summer. From Christy's class notes, " Yamas and Niyamas remind us to step back and remember to connect with what is really important. In this way, we shape our lives, with purpose."

From the author, Deborah Adele, "I often think of them (yamas and niyamas) as jewels, because they are rare gems of wisdom that give us direction to a well lived and joyful life."

Each week we will embrace a yama or niyama, so get your copy today and join us!
