Asana Clinic: Surya Namaskar with Laura. Saturday, November 12, 1-3:30 PM.

Surya Namaskar- the Sun Salutations of Vinyasa Yoga- are designed to heat the body, preparing it for deeper work. Done properly, these postures stretch, open, and strengthen the entire body. Without mindful awareness, however, repetition of these movements over 391634_416604398401753_420943157_ntime can cause injury and strain. In this 2.5 hour workshop, Laura will work with a limited number of participants to provide personalized alignment instruction that isn’t normally provided in a traditional class. 
  • Learn the foundation of each posture so that you always have your feet in the “right place”
  • Learn how to modify poses for your body as you gain strength and flexibility
  • Learn how to transition gracefully (but safely!)
  • Identify patterns in your practice that can lead to common injuries
Space is limited.
Bring your questions and be prepared to work (in a compassionate way)!
Some previous knowledge of yoga is helpful but not required. All levels are welcome and modifications will be offered.
 Tuition: $35 before November 5. $40 after. Reserve today. 

Saturday, November 26. Yoga Nidra with Laura, 12:30-2 PM.  Yoga Nidra (“Yogic Sleep”) is a way to experience profound calmness, stillness and clarity. It is one of the deepest of all meditations, leading photo1awareness through many levels of mental process to a state of supreme stillness and insight. Yoga Nidra often leads to deep relaxation, assisting the body in dropping out of “fight or flight” and back into “rest and digest” state for a calmer mind and a more efficient immune system. 

“Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of complete relaxation, holistically addressing our physiological, neurological, and subconscious needs…Yoga Nidra uniquely unwinds the nervous system, which is the foundation of the body’s well-being” – Rod Stryker
The practice is done lying down on your yoga mat for at least one hour. Please bring anything you need to help yourself be comfortable, including a yoga mat, pillow and/or blanket.
Tuition: $20 before November 19, $25 after.  No experience is necessary to take this class. Reserve online today. 

From Waah! to Aha! Breaking Your Birth Script Habits with Robin Jillson. Saturday, December 10, 1-4 pm. Birth is our first experience of aliveness, and our first experience of change. babyWhat happened during our own individual labor and birth have a lifelong effect on us. We all were incredibly conscious and aware during birth and we formed strong opinions about ourselves and the world around us as we made our entry into life. Learn how to unravel your birth script, how it shaped your earliest thoughts, and how it continues to affect you today. Knowing that many traits and quirks that you attribute to your character are just habits can give you a fresh attitude, and this workshop will give you the perspective and tools to improve your relationship with yourself and your world. Robin Jillson has studied personal growth topics for over 25 years. As a Rebirther trained by some of the very first Rebirthing teachers, she has guided hundreds of clients and students onto paths of peace and freedom through the unravelling of birth scripts.  Tuition: $30 before Dec 3, $35 after. Click here for more information or to reserve your space online. 

Dear friends: Please keep in mind that our space is limited. Reserving via MindBody’s online scheduling system is the best way to ensure your spot in class. We also ask that when visiting our studio, you park in the middle of the lot (not in front of a building) or in one of the two spots directly in front of our space. This keeps our neighbors happy, which is very important to us. Thanks for your help!
