A Standing Pose Workshop
Teacher: Wendy Webb
Join Wendy for a 2 hour workshop on all the standing poses in the Yogahour syllabus. Standing poses build stability, flexibility and strength that we can then offer to others or use to grow other aspects of practice. Suitable for the fit beginner to advanced practitioner, we'll use this time to break down the basics.

Gentle Heart: Where Strength Meets Surrender
Teacher: Stephani Lindsey
The Bhagavad Gita reminds us that one who is really strong is gentle. A trickling stream, by its persistence, over a long period of time, can create deep canyons, like that of The Grand Canyon. At first a small groove in rock is no big deal, but in time, the consistent effort becomes a sight worthy of awe.
Yoga practice invites us to adopt such strength on our mats, a strength that is steady, focused, and consistent. The practice then transfers benefits into a way of life in which one may surrender to life's circumstances, whatever they may be, feeling connected to a source of wisdom and steadiness within, and simultaneously release the habitual resistance and tightening that would often arise. True strength can be gentle, soft, and resilient.
Join Stephani in this all levels workshop to cultivate your gentle heart. Although each class focuses on a specific style of postures, each class will be balanced, incorporating detailed alignment, demonstrations, hip-openers, and core strengthening.

Community Mindfulness Meditation - Wednesdays and Sundays!
Join our Free Weekly Meditation Groups
Join our meditation circles on Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings. It's a wonderful opportunity to sit together as a community. On Wednesday nights, we typically meditate for approximately 45 minutes with a sequence of sitting meditation, walking meditation, and then sitting meditation. At the end, there is a brief (10-minute) discussion about meditation, mindfulness, and cultivating a regular home practice. It is open to everyone and no prior experience is necessary. On Sunday mornings, we do a slightly shorter version of this.
Donations will be accepted to help cover expenses and to go towards scholarships for students to attend future meditation workshop
