This workshop will explore the nature and execution of the Bhandas – the 3 Yogic Locks that assist in the movement of Kundalini energy along the spinal column of the practitioner. The practice of Jalandahara, Uddiyana, and Mula Bhanda will be explained and demonstrated, as well as their application in a variety of Yogic asanas and exercises. In addition we will talk about the 3 subtle Granthis that are related to these physical locks, and will practice a powerful meditation that evokes and integrates this tripartite energy. 
Enliven your practice by the use of these potent tools!

A fusion of relaxing and supportive positions enhanced through touch and mindfulness. Clients hold gentle, supported stretches for about 10 minutes while Beth, a licensed massage therapist, massages various muscles groups, allowing for a head to toe massage in a single class.

With Yomassage™, clients can receive therapeutic touch in a group environment, fully clothed, while relaxing in restorative positions and practicing mindfulness. Offering massage in a small group setting allows massage at a more accessible price, and creates a safe and welcoming environment.

When arriving to your first Yomassage™ class it is recommended to wear comfortable yoga like clothing and wear layers. Please bring a water bottle for yourself.
When you arrive the space will be fully set up and when the session is over you can just float out.

Minimum of 4 students, Max of 5. If not enough people are signed up Beth will cancel with 24 hour notice. Please sign up in advance to reserve a spot. A 48 hour cancellation is required for a refund for the Yomassage classes.

Hand-balancing is a delicate integration of body, mind, & breath...and more accessible than you think!

This first portion of class is designed to guide you through specific exercises to address physical limitations including strength & flexibility. The second portion will help navigate the mental limitations including trust & upside-down proprioception.

We will have time for yogi-driven practice with spotting, partner work, and props to give you the courage and opportunity to safely explore on your hands...anywhere from crow to one-arm handstands!

This is a class and included with your unlimited monthly or class passes

Workshop: Yoga of Voice. Saturday February 22 at 1:30-5:30pm

image50

The Authentic Voicework Intensive is a life-changing process of discovery of the voice through releasing tension and revealing the true poetic nature of your authentic self. A powerful afternoon for those looking to overcome hurdles around the voice and singing. Life experience can cause us to inhibit our voice, our power, and willingness to share our true gifts with the world. This is an opportunity to free that part of you and open up to the joy of singing with the authentic voice of power!

For beginners and seasoned professionals alike, this “Yoga of the Voice” will teach singing technique basics, postural alignment for freeing the breath and the voice, and explores archetypal themes of inhibition and freedom that play a tug-of-war between the body & mind. Students will experiment with fun singing games, explore singing from one’s inner depths, and learn to listen to one’s own intuitive creativity that guides us. Get ready to move outmoded ways of thinking and feeling, and let the voice be heard! Wear comfortable clothing, bring a yoga mat or towel, and a journal to mark your progress. Intend for miracles!

Participants will: 
* learn vocal warm-up techniques 
* identify the anatomy of the voice 
* explore release techniques for finding freedom in the body, breath, voice, creativity 
* explore exercises that reveal new creative expressions through the voice.

Special Class Offering: BYOB Yoga. Sunday February 23 at 2pm

Bring Your Old Books in exchange for a yoga class! The class will be a Yinyasa style practice, holding certain asanas for longer amounts of time, and connecting each one through a hatha style "flow". Connecting to our breath, we'll incorporate pranayama practices, breathing together and going deeper. Throughout the class Nicole will be reading some excerpts from a few of her favorite books.

Cash donations ARE NOT NECESSARY but are warmly welcomed as our Free Yoga Library and Pantry that this class is aiming to restock, was destroyed. Our friend at the library, Annise, who initiated its initial build, has generously been using her own money to fix it and keep it maintained. Any $ donations will be going to her and her efforts. Bringing an item for the pantry also counts if you do not have any books!
