Nationally recognized teachers, spiritual leaders, and musical talent are featured at each event to make for a fun-filled, empowering day both on and off your mat. From DJs on the main stage to local vendors offering organic food and crafts, and charitable organizations making an impact in your local community,

Join a vibrant community to spread love, peace, compassion, and well-being into the world.

We'll caravan from the studio at 5AM, equipped with coffee and bagels, dressed in freshly pressed new headstands everywhere t-shirts, and armed with yoga mats.

Women's Gratitude Sangha Event

Women's Gratitude Sangha Event

We gather and practice, focusing on cultivating gratitude while honoring and nurturing the sacred bond between women. Together, we ground ourselves in the realities of the human experience and commit to long-term gratitude journaling; experiencing restorative yoga, learning meditative techniques that you can use in daily life, and collectively, committing to practicing gratitude daily. Every woman is welcome.

Each time we meet, we will have a theme that serves as a focal point for contemplation and self-inquiry. We will use yoga and meditation as tools to practice self-awareness and to cultivate sensitivity and compassion on our own unique journeys. At the end of each practice, there is the option for discussion about how your yoga practice serves you off the mat and in your daily life (and perhaps mimosa and bloody marys). By sharing our stories, we may inspire others to live more joyously!

This workshop is intended for all levels of yoga practitioners -- beginners and experienced yoginis welcome.

Curvy Yoga Series

Curvy Yoga Series

Registration closes March 1, 2018

We're trialing a newly-designed program called Curvy Yoga that's intended for women and men who are sedentary, up to 100 pounds overweight, and are capable of being mobile. This twelve-week program focuses on building strength, increasing balance and stability, and encouraging mobility. During the twelve weeks, participants will attend private group and individual yoga classes of varying length and intensity, and will also practice at home/outside of the yoga studio. There are 20 private group classes in-studio and 5 individual classes. 

Because this is a trial, we want to keep participation costs low and because we want ongoing participation, we believe we'll have greater success if there is a substantial investment by participants. Those things in mind, this program is $450 or $100 deposit and 10 payments $40 per week. And as a "thank you", everyone who completes* the program will receive a refund of $100.
*Program completion means participation in greater than 90% of the classes.

Class size is limited to six. PM, call, or text with questions and for registration details. Please note that this program is not intended as a weight-loss program and weight-loss is not a focus or goal of this program.

Merging With The Elements: Vinyasa Flow, Cacao, Sacred Drumming

2:00 PM14:00

Merging With The Elements: Vinyasa Flow, Cacao, Sacred Drumming

>> Move into 2018 with L ♥ V E + compassion! <<

Explore the fusion of the ancient internal practices of Yoga and Shamanism. Yoga (union with the Divine) and Shamanism (interaction with the spirit world) both are practices traditionally designed to lead us to the direct flow of wisdom. We begin the class with a cup of Sacred Cacao to connect us to Spirit and to help expand our Heart Chakra (30 min). We then use the ancient teachings of Nature's Five Elements for this intense and transformational yoga practice (90 min). Our experience will be deepened by the constant thread of Sacred Sounds performed live.

Guided by the cycles of the Five Elements, we will embody the energies of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether. As we become each of these elements, we will learn valuable lessons that will allow us to reveal our passions, to shift perceptions, and to dream our world into being. You will leave the practice feeling spiritually cleansed, emotionally empowered, and expansive....ready to live life the life that wants to live in you! Now is the time to reveal yourself to yourself. As the Hopi Elders stated: “We are the ones that we’ve been waiting for.”

*Investment: $50 reg price
