Yin & Pin for Spring! (Yin Yoga + Acupuncture)

Please note: Due to the studio closure as a precaution against COVID-19, this workshop is postponed indefinitely. Please keep an eye on our website and social media for new information as it becomes available.

$55 regular price

Spring forward! As we emerge from our winter dens, we start to feel the forward movement of spring energy... what better way to embrace this than with a rejuvenating 3-hour yin yoga & acupuncture workshop with Katie Sayers (RDYT200) and Stephanie Funk (R.Ac)!

As we transition from the internal and integrative winter into the vibrant and blossoming spring season, we are called to nourish, ground, and stabilize ourselves. We will explore the symbolic and energetic nature of these seasons and their influence on our minds, emotions, and bodies from a Yogic and Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective. Empower yourself with practical tools that you can take off the mat to help you welcome Spring with discernment and esteem.

Leave feeling balanced, empowered, and equipped to welcome the spring with open arms!

Beginner AcroYoga Workshop

Sunday, April 26th

11:30am - 2:00pm

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.
