COMING UP NEXT!

Friday and Saturday, Oct. 25 – 26th – Master Teacher: GABRIEL HALPERN 

Weekend Theme: 
“Shakti: Women and the Future of Yoga”
Many portents of what is stirring now world wide bid us look ahead to what’s next. And what is next?  The future is female. Once the bastion of male dominated hierarchies, women have taken over the yogic leadership in America in unprecedented waves. Across our country additional versions of the Me Too movement have been advanced by women with much insight to add the the public sphere. This weekend’s focus will be on the  recognition of the Goddesses within the yogic tradition as well as honoring the triple Goddess as embodied in diverse cultures across the globe.
    • Oct. 25th, Friday, 6-9 p.m. – Saints, Sages & Mythological Icons. SOLD OUT!  Yogic postures are often named after Gurus, Rishis, and other famous practitioners of this noble art. We honor names like Bharadvaja, Vasishta, Marichi, Matsyendra, and Hanuman, as well as plants and animals like Padmasana, Vrksasna, Simhasana, and Garudasana. Tonight’s class will be a fun practice that reminds us of the yogis of yore and their stories. $45/workshop in advance. $50 at the door.
    • Oct. 26th, Saturday, 11-2 p.m. – Twists & Inversions: Restorative Practices to Heal from Trauma, Anxiety & Depression – SOLD OUT!- All life has a sorrowful component. No one is free from feeling this aspect of their humanity. Yoga is one of the best choices to adapt and cope with the facts of existence and the shocks we have all been heir to. The ultimate holistic discipline for combating anxiety or depression, a good yoga practice grounds you in the here-and-now and keeps the mind free from jumping ahead to the unknown future or languishing in the already gone past. Because of its creative nature, yoga helps a person express themselves in a way that bespeaks freedom and releases tensions and forces that have held us down. This workshop is designed to bring you the calm and focus needed to be self aware, relaxed, and critical in our thinking about the thoughts we choose to focus on and highlight restorative poses that relax the nervous system and keep the heart open to devotion and compassion. Please note: Both workshops are CURRENTLY FULL. Please only use the form below if you have already signed up in the studio. If you’d like to be added to the waiting list, please email us and we’ll add you to the list. All on-line transactions include a $3 processing fee.
