APRIL WORKSHOPS & EVENTS
 

SUBTLE BODY RELEASE: CHAKRA TUNING & PURIFICATION
WITH NICOLE NICHOLS
SATURDAY, APRIL 8   2:30-4:30PM

Join Nicole Nichols for a unique experiential workshop that merges vibration, music, mantra, asana and meditation to bring about a deep healing experience through sound and yoga.

For many, the chakras are mysterious 'energy centers' in the body represented by rainbow colored lotus flowers. Did you know that they function as doorways of perception, and are associated with our relationships with our family, the earth, creative and romantic partners, those we have harmed and those we feel have harmed us, and even our relationship with Self and the divine? Whether you are new to the practice, or are an experienced practitioner, come take a journey into the subtle body through sound, guided meditation and asana specifically arranged to tune, purify and release each chakra, to find inner and outer peace.  $35

SPECIAL CLASS!! YOGA NIDRA
WITH ZORA SAVAGE
SATURDAY, APRIL 22ND   3:00-4:15PM

All our lives are filled with stress. Yoga Nidra provides the "reset" button we need by promoting deep relaxation, rest and rejuvenation for our nervous system, leading to better health. Yoga Nidra means Yogic Sleep, and is a state of conscious Deep Sleep. Different that meditation, where one remains in the Waking state of consciousness to focus the mind--in Yoga Nidra, we leave the Waking state, go past the Dreaming state, and go to Deep Sleep, yet remain awake. Join Zora Savage for this deeply rejuvenating experience in a special class. All are welcome.  Regular class pricing applies. 

 
 

YIN YOGA: 
DIVE DEEPER INTO THE PRINCIPLES BEHIND THE PRACTICE
WITH RONEN DIVON
SATURDAY, APRIL 29TH   2:30-4:30PM
 
Intended for experienced yogis as well as curious participants new to the practice of Yin Yoga, this 2-hour workshop, join Ronen Divon and explore deeper aspects of Yin not typically taught in regular classes. Asanas will include some familiar poses, and some we rarely practice. Attention will be given to the subtler elements of energy flow, and how the body reacts when placed on the edge of tension. If you have practiced Yin Yoga with Ronen before, this is an opportunity to expand your practice! $35

 *NEW*  HOW TO DEVELOP YOUR PRACTICE
WITH ALISHA NISSENFELD
SUNDAY, APRIL 30  1:30-3:30PM

Whether you are new to yoga, or have been practicing for years, join Alisha Nissenfeld on a journey to develop or advance your yoga practice either in classes or at home, and learn how to redirect energy of everyday life to look inward.
In this 2-hour workshop you will:
  • Learn how to honestly and truthfully listen to the teacher within and feel what you need. Through the practice of Self-Love, you will be taught how to intelligently create a practice that progresses over time. 
  • Learn how to safely and confidently give yourself enhancements/assists to find space and length.
  • Learn how to begin or fine-tune a meditation practice through the direct path of The Koshas or "Sheaths" of meditation: Physical Body, Breath Body, Mind Body, Wisdom, and Bliss Body.
Come with an open mind, and leave feeling like you have the tools necessary to deepen your practice, both on and off the mat, at home, or in studio classes. All are welcome! $35

Join Ronen for a new weekly Sundays, for a wonderful way to release the weekend and get ready for the week ahead. You asked for it, and we are thrilled to have him with us again on a weekly basis. Yin Yoga is a practice that uses traditional asanas and props, in a manner that requires less external effort, to stretch connective tissues and open energy pathways. Asanas are held for 3 to 6 minutes, with Pranayama done either as individual breathing exercises or integrated with the Yin practice. Pranayama increases awareness and moves energy through the subtle body system. Beneficial for all levels, from beginning to advanced! Regular class pricing applies.
