Specialty Workshops and 4 Week Series
There is a fee for specialty classes unless otherwise noted. To register for specialty classes, scroll down and click on the Registration button. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Workshops are usually one-day, intensive, fee-based classes. Our intimate 4 Week Series classes give you the opportunity to deepen your practice and work closely with one teacher. Check out the upcoming workshops below.
The intention for this 4 week series is ahimsa, non-violence. This is the first principle taught in yoga, but often the one most easily forgotten in the classroom. You will be encouraged to be kind to yourself at each stage. Dancer's pose and full bow are two beneficial and advanced backbends. All levels are welcome, it's about the journey, not the destination. Week one will give you gentle options and introduce the risks and the benefits of backbends. We will then introduce ourselves to each other and build our community. You will leave each class with a personal inspirational quote for the week. In order to keep an intimate and safe space, for exploring full backbends, this class is limited to 12 participants. If full bow scares you, excites you, seems impossible, creates intrigue and you’d like to explore a path toward it, this is the workshop for you. “Fear is just excitement without breath.”
Fridays, May 1st, 8th, 15th & 22nd in Studio B.
