Join Nicole Nichols for an open-level practice set to the world beats of the tabla, played live by Ishwin Dembla. Tabla is a versatile instrument widely used in classical Indian music, kirtans and folk music. The vibrations of the instrument provide a soulful experience and deep relaxation. The Yogi can experience and appreciate the different sounds the instrument is capable of producing, and the unique combination of Yoga with tabla accompaniment can aid in stress relief and calmness.
Enjoy Yoga on a completely different level!
Ishwin Dembla is an accomplished Tabla player based in the Triangle, with over 20 years of performance experience. He has studied Tabla under the guidance of several masters, namely Ustad Zakir Hussain, Ustad Shabbir Nisar and Pandit Nayan Ghosh. He has accompanied numerous artists and is also a Tabla solo artist focusing in the Punjab and Farrukabad styles of Tabla playing.

"You must be fueled by a burning desire to continuously study the Self, which is only available in the present moment, and to devote yourself wholly to this effort - these are the actions to be taken to attain Yoga."
-Patanjali Yoga Sutra 2:1

COOLING SUMMER RESTORATIVE YOGA
SATURDAY, JULY 18TH 1:30-3:30PM
The heat of the summer is upon us! Join Julee Snyder and take a break during the heat of the day to enjoy this cooling practice. Restorative yoga is a resting practice in which props are used to support a pose so that you may rest in it for 5-20 minutes without strain. While some slow practices have you at the edge of your stretch the whole time, restorative practice aims to reduce sensation so that you may pull your senses and your mind inward
to a place of conscious rest and meditation.
Expect a cool room, soft music, and a soothing, calm voice to guide you through the practice. Rest into your bliss!
THE ART OF INVERSION
WITH JENNIFER CAMPBELL-OVERBEEKE
SUNDAY, JULY 26TH 2:00-4:00PM
Back by popular demand--Join Jennifer Campbell-Overbeeke for a practice geared to help you overcome the fear and disorientation
that often accompanies inversion practice.
Are you wishing you could be one of those yogis who effortlessly floats up into a handstand, but is secretly terrified of falling? This workshop is for you! Safely explore the primary inversions-hand stand, forearm stand, head stand, and shoulder stand.
Everyone will have a space to work at the wall; you'll learn alignment principles plus balance and strength-building techniques to
develop a steady and joyful inversion practice.
Turn your world upside down on purpose--it's fun!
All are welcome, especially beginners.
