Arm Balance Playshop with Laura. SOLD OUT. Saturday, November 22, 1-3:30 PM. Join Laura Wenger (E-RYT200, RYT500) for an afternoon of practice and play with arm-balancing postures. Many of these beautiful postures are more accessible than you may think! In this two-and-a-half hour “playshop,” we’ll break down the postures in a way that we can’t do in a traditional vinyasa class. You’ll earn how to use your body’s innate intelligence to unlock the unique combination of core awareness, confidence and body mechanics required to find balance and take flight. We’ll explore the paradox of dropping force and tension to access inner lightness and ease. All participants will be given instruction appropriate to their current level. You’ll leave with plenty of tools that you can use in your asana practice to access your body’s ability to defy gravity.

Yoga Nidra with Laura. Saturday, December 13, 1-3 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 awareness 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. 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 pillow and/or blanket. Tuition: $20.
