Strike a Pose!
Join Sharon for this wonderful, in depth exploration of asana. We’ll take some of the most common poses in yoga and look at them in detail. Using our bodies and our brains, we’ll move and study while learning about common misalignments, key actions for each pose, and how to make every pose feel better to your body. All levels welcome. $20 before March 7; $25 thereafter

Step away from the bustle of life, unwind, and recharge during this 2-hour restorative yoga practice. 30 minutes of slow flow will serve to gently transition the body and mind from a day of activity into an evening of relaxation. The subsequent practice will consist of quiet, long, supported holds in restorative poses intended to facilitate balance and rejuvenation. The evening will conclude with a taste of pranayama, followed by a period of mindful sitting, culminating in sweet Savasana. Class size is limited to 12.

Turn your World Upside Down: An Evening of Inversions
Friday, April 11, 6–8 pm
Love inversions but don’t get enough of them in your regular yoga classes? Don’t yet know how but want to try? Afraid but want to know how to modify and get the benefits? Then this class is for you. We will cover the common inversions—handstand, headstand, forearm stand, and shoulder stand–from the foundation up. We’ll look at safe ways to modify the poses for any level, and how to bring your pose to the next level if you’ve been stuck for a while. We will delve into some variations, and try some other arm balances, too. This is a mixed level class. Students should have some knowledge of inversions but you do not have to know how to go upside to attend. More advanced students will be encouraged to look at their base, and their breath, to get deeper into poses. Plan to have fun, work hard, and get a new perspective! $20 before April 4; $25 thereafter

“Our breath is constantly rising and falling, ebbing and flowing, entering and leaving our bodies. Full body breathing is an extraordinary symphony of both powerful and subtle movements that massage our internal organs, oscillate our joints, and alternately tone and release all the muscles in the body. It is a full participation in life.” – Donna Farhi
