Falling Awake - Autumn Yoga Nidra
Saturday, November 16th
6:00pm - 8:00pm
Like the true colors of a leaf revealed when sunlight hours diminish and chlorophyll production wanes, previously hidden aspects of Self are unveiled through the practice of Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep).
Intended to induce full-body relaxation while diminishing attachment to the conditioned mind, the resulting expanded state of consciousness and self-awareness provides a potent field to address physiological, neurological, and subconscious needs. Comfortably supported in savasana, this deep meditative state is accessed through guided visualization and relaxation techniques.
We'll begin with gentle asana and pranayama to welcome openness and ease, as well as a discussion of Sankalpa and its role in the practice.
All levels are welcome.

TRE: Tension & Stress Release Workshop
Sunday, November 17th
1:00pm - 4:00pm
Join Meg Gorosh, RYT 500 and Certified TRE Provider, for this introductory workshop on TRE (tension and stress relieving exercises), an innovative approach to managing and mitigating the effects of stress in your body and in your life. Whether we realize it or not, stress is something that impacts every one of us on a daily basis. Our bodies weren't designed to live with the chronic and sometimes toxic stress that so many of us carry. TRE is an effective and easy-to-learn practice to release the damaging tension caused by stress that causes pain and suffering in both body and mind.
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.
Numa Breathwork Journey

Yin & Fascial Release - Lower Body Love
Saturday, November 23rd
1:00pm - 4:00pm
We will be using a combination of meditation, ball rolling, foam rollers and long held Yin postures to find awareness and sweet release in our bodies.
