Workshop: Inversions Skills & Drills. Sun Feb 4. 2:30-3:30p

Join Mallory Rose and Sarah Peters for this special workshop designed to improve or start your inversion practice. We will be waking up the muscles needed to invert yourself with a Vinyasa flow, followed by drills you can practice at the wall and with a partner.

Please note that if this is your first time playing with inversions you might not walk away doing a full inversion the first time. This workshop is geared to give you the knowledge and techniques to continue your journey in order to invert yourself safely. Come ready to play, fall, sweat and flip your perspective.

Workshop is scheduled to end at 4:30pm but if you are able plan to stick around for another half hour to play with what you've learned.

Workshop: Double Gong Bath. First Sunday's. Jan 7. 5:30-6:30p

First Sunday's of the month. Vibrational healing has been used throughout the ages in many ancient healing traditions throughout the world and is now beginning to be recognized in scientific circles. The vibrations of the healing gong can deepen the effect of meditation and help to expand awareness. According to yogic science, the gong is the vibrational sound of creation. The gong, can help to eliminates diseased cells, and it can help to re-pattern the gray matter of the brain. The frequency can help to balance the meridians, the parasympathetic nervous system, and chakras to create a very deep relaxation response. The sound from the gong has the ability to release tension and the torrent of thoughts that block healing.

Mervin Alphonse will play a 34” Wuhan gong and Philip Clampitt will play a 32" Paiste Symphonic gong in the cozy studio, generating robust vibrations that cascade into the body like a waterfall, creating a very unique healing experience. The class will start with gentle yoga, followed by the gong experience, and finish with a Kundalini Yoga meditation.

THERE’S SOMETHING SACRED ABOUT THE MOUNTAINS  No matter how long you’ve been practicing yoga, a cool lush mountain yoga retreat will jumpstart the reset button for you. Why the mountains? Crystal Olry, owner of Ekah Yoga in Bloomington, Indiana — tells us: “I was born and raised in northern Indiana where the land is so flat you can see for miles and miles down the crop dusters’ trail, and something about this has a grounding effect that has brought stability into my life.” But there’s something so innately peaceful about the mountains. To me they help me find time for re-patterning, and then expanding. It becomes very intuitive to draw strength from the mountains and find calm within when we stand firm in Tadasana, or step into strength in Virabradasana. And the lights from below illuminate our aura, lighten our hearts, as we feel a balance between grounding and expanding.  Dates: March 10-15th (5 day) or March 10-17th (7 day) with Sloth Sanctuary inclusion.
