We know that during the cold months students wanted to get right on into the toasty studio to escape the cold outside, but now that spring and the warmer weather is upon us, we ask that you help us with the sometimes tight transitions that we have between our back to back classes.
Please let the students in the class prior to yours exit the studio before you enter.   We have a bench and chairs for you to sit and congregate at while you let the classes exchange and unfold.
Also, we know that some of you have preferred mat locations, but please be considerate to your fellow yogis.   Buddha says, “the root of suffering is attachement”.

We look forward to practicing with you and to all that the warmer months have to offer!

Yoga Fire!
Sat. April 11th 11-1PM with TJ Mokkosian
Many styles of modern yoga offer external heat as a way to prepare the body for the practice of asana. The truth is that for hundreds of years yogis have been using heat in practice only their heat was internal. They called this force agni. Agni is said to be the fuel of a powerful force called yoga Fire capable of burning away all that blocks us from our true nature. We will break down many Agni producing techniques and learn ways to apply them to our practice leaving us open to our unique power and potential.

Stability & Mobility for the Hips
Sun. April 12th 1-3PM with Amy Leydon
This workshop will focus on creating strength and flexibility in the hips. Amy will begin class with rolling techniques to soften the connective tissue in the body. Then we will move into Amy’s Slow Flow style of Vinyasa to stretch and strengthen the hips and pelvis. You will better understand terms like abduction, adduction, internal rotation, and external rotation of the hips. Class will end with a restorative focus. Through meditative exercises, breath work and passive stretches, we will calm the nervous system and find further release through the connective tissue in our bodies. This work will help to find the balance between stability and mobility in the hips to ease pain and improve the function of your pelvis.  All levels are welcome!
