Beginner AcroYoga Workshop
Saturday, February 29th
1:00pm - 3:30pm
Can you do Acro Yoga? Yes you can!
We will start right at the basics, building a solid foundation as flyers, bases, and spotters. We will laugh, play, and support each other as we discover foundational poses such as bird, throne, and back flying. Come to class and experience how attainable this practice is. Our philosophy is that everything is possible. Anything you can't do is simply something you can't do yet. No partner needed, just an open mind and a desire to play.
Facilitated by Varenka Schwarz and Genevieve Hicks.
Harmonize - Yoga Nidra For Your Energy Field
Sunday, March 1st
1:00pm - 3:00pm
"If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration."
Your Human Energy Field (HEF), which surrounds and interpenetrates your physical body, is intimately associated with your health. Dis-ease arises when the flow of energy within your field is unbalanced or stagnated.
Join Stacy Papp for this a 45-minute Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) session, positioned comfortably in savasana after a cleansing pranayama and gentle movement practice to clear blockages and alter the flow within your HEF. Specific relaxation techniques and guided visualization will liberate your awareness from your external senses allowing your consciousness to tour your HEF and ultimately reside in the Universal Energy Field (UEF); granting you access to greater levels of frequency and information.
Stacy has been deepening her practice of the yoga tradition for almost 20 years, and with over 500hrs of training, has reverently accepted the role of teacher. Sustained by a heartfelt desire to be of service and share the grace and splendor of a transformational practice that exists both on and off the mat, she looks forward to sharing the unique experience of Yoga Nidra with you.
Yin and Myofascial Release - Lower Body

Using a combination of meditation, ball rolling, foam rollers, and long-held Yin postures, you'll build awareness of your interconnected network of fascia, find where you tend to hold tension, and facilitate release and openness in the muscles your lower body.
This workshop is limited to 20 participants. Register early!
TRE: Tension and Stress Release Workshop
Sunday, March 15th
12:00pm - 3:00pm
In this workshop we will learn how stress affects both our physiology and psychology, and how this internal and inherent recovery response can help to reduce the negative effects of stress on our nervous system, thereby opening up a life that feels more manageable, a mind that feels calmer and more clear, and a body that feels relaxed and enlivened. Empower yourself with your own biology, and feel the difference immediately!
Created by Dr. David Bercelli, TRE uses a set of 7 gentle and adaptable exercises that can be modified to support every body type and ability, to elicit an intentional and self controlled muscular tremor, deep in the core of the body. Similar to the way animals shake off stress, this tremor reflex seeks out and gently vibrates open deeply held patterns of tension in the muscle tissue and fascia of the body, while naturally quieting and re-regulating the nervous system.
Facilitated by Meg Gorosh.

Mala, Mantra & Meditation
Saturday, May 23rd
1:00pm - 3:00pm
Like prayer and affirmation, the repetitious use of mantra can have powerful effects on the mind, body, spirit and emotions. In this 2-hour workshop you will learn about Malas and Mantras while you create your own unique Mala to take home and use during Japa Mala meditation practice. Mantras are unique combinations of Sanskrit words and sounds that when chanted repeatedly invoke different energies. All supplies and instruction needed to create a Mala unique to your needs and desires are included. Also included are a list of mantras to use with your Mala. We will practice a Japa Mala meditation at the end of the workshop using your new Mala beads. No previous experience necessary.
