> Slow Mindful Flow + Cacao Ritual w/ Maura Finn
Celebrate love in its purest sense by participating in a sacred Guatemalan cacao ritual. You have the option to join a slow flow yoga class before to the ceremony; then dive into music, laughter, a little movement and deep heart-centered connection with community, while sipping a tasty infusion of high-quality chocolate + spices (shipped in fresh from Guatemala!).
While there does not need to be a season or day to celebrate self-love, it is extra potent when we can gather together and open to the possibilities of our heart’s desires in communion with others. With the added element of heart-opening chocolate, we can tap into our limitlessness and be surprised by the mysteries waiting to be revealed.
Join Maura Finn on Saturday, February 16th from 4 – 7 PM. We will start with a Slow Mindful Flow Yoga practice from 4 – 5 PM (beginners welcome!); then transition into the cacao ceremony from 5:15 – 7:00 PM. Please bring your favorite mug, a journal, something to write with – and an open heart.
> Crystal Bowl Sound Bath w/Riitta Thrall
February is a month of purification and transition into new beginnings. Marking the halfway point between winter and spring, it is a time of change. This guided meditation will take you on a clarifying and focusing journey while you immerse the mind, body and spirit in a nourishing sound bath with crystal + Tibetan bowls and harmonious chimes.
Join Riitta on Sunday, February 17th, 5:30 – 6:30 PM for this relaxing musical experience. She will guide you through a clarifying meditation that will help you get focused about what’s next in your life, while you allow the beautiful sounds of singing crystal + Tibetan Bowls – and harmonious chimes to wash over you.
> Feel Good Sitting: Somatic Education w/ Becca Goldstein
According to current data, the cause of our pain and dysfunction is not the amount of time that we spend sitting, but how we are sitting.
In order to improve our form when we sit, we must explore the source of movement and posture: the brain! In this intriguing workshop, you will be guided through a series of chair-based movements that recruit the power of your mind in finding ease + comfort when sitting.
This workshop is appropriate for all abilities! Join Becca Goldstein on Saturday, February 23rd from 2 – 3:30 PM to enlist the help of your brain in reducing pain.
> Prenatal Partner Yoga w/ Roxy Robbins
In this 1.5 hour class, you + your partner will be both empowered and put at ease learning essential yoga techniques for labor and birth. These practices will help you find connection with one another and prepare for the journey ahead.
Roxy Robbins is a doula, childbirth educator and prenatal yoga instructor, part of the team at HomeGrown Babies. Let her show you how yoga can be a wonderful healing tool to minimize stress and address the common discomforts of pregnancy. Bring your partner and work together to set the tone for a nourishing, comfortable pregnancy – and an empowered birth.
Join Roxy on Saturday, March 2nd, 2 – 3:30 PM with your partner and help prepare for your bundle of joy!
> Partner Adjustments Workshop w/ Paula Bortolotto
In this fun and informative workshop, we’ll explore traditional yoga postures with a partner. After a brief warm up, we will experience poses with another body helping you reach a deeper sense of alignment and release in the shape. As you trade places and assist another, the understanding of the pose comes full circle.
With your partner’s help, you’ll be able to both try new poses – and find deeper experiences of familiar postures. Working together towards a “yoga goal” helps build a sense of community, understanding and trust, both with your partner and within the class as a whole.
Join Paula Bortolotto on Saturday, March 23rd, 12 – 2 PM to experience this playful expression!
> All About Adjustments w/ Paula Bortolotto
(Yoga Alliance CE course for yoga teachers and movement therapists*) // One of the great benefits of being a yoga instructor is the ability to help others. This includes knowing and refining how to adjust your students during practice, to deepen their understanding of their anatomy – and the energetic component of Yoga.
Often students are unaware of structural misalignments in their body. Sometimes, showing a student how to align themselves is not sufficient. Physical adjustments are often a silent conservation between student and teacher, and trust must be established before any hands-on approach is implemented.
Join Paula Bortolotto, E-RYT 500, on Saturday, March 23rd, from 2:30 – 5:30 PM to learn when and how to physically adjust your students. Learn what type of touch is most needed for a variety of students. We will explore adjustments for traditional asanas, such as standing, sitting, supine; as well as yin and restorative poses.
