Inversions for Beginners w/ Frank!
So you’re in class and the instructor says it’s time for an inversion. How do you respond?
A) Heart palpitations and sweaty palms.
B) Duck and cover and run to the bathroom.
C) Take child’s pose and keep your head down until it’s over.
D) All of the above
If inversions make you nervous this is the workshop for you! Together we will warm up the body and prepare ourselves in the right way to go upside down. We will examine, deconstruct, and explore the proper preparations and alignment for shoulderstands and handstands. We will use props, partners, and the wall to safely find ways to get more comfortable turning ourselves upside down. The hope is by the time you are finished with this workshop, inverting the heart above the head will fill you with joy instead of dread.
This workshop is recommended for students with an ongoing Level 1 practice.

The Bliss of Amrita Women’s Workshop w/ Deb Bagg
In this two hour practice, we will dive into the blissful state of Amrita, or the nectar that is produced from your own body. In the intimate company of women, we gain greater access to oxytocin, the hormone of bliss that simply feels good and helps us to stay connected and feel happy. We will meditate, chant, practice deep healing asanas and kriyas, and do hands-on practice with each other to support the great opening that is shared in the great company of women.
The workshop is open to all women. Bring yourself, as you are. If you have a particular poem or song that you would like to share, please bring it to the workshop.
“This is a place for you to go…a place of women, to help you learn the ways of women…a place where you were nurtured from an ancient flow sustaining you and steadying you as you sought to become yourself. A place of women to help you find and trust the ancient flow already there within yourself…waiting to be released… A place of women…” ~ Judith Duerk, Circle of stones.

Vinyasa Breakdown: Moving from Level 1 to 2 w/ Lisa Bermudez
Are you just wondering what it takes to make that transition from your level 1 yoga classes into a level 2?
Have you ever been in a yoga class and wondered what the transition from Caturanga into Upward Facing Dog should look like? Do you look around the room and wonder what your knees are doing? What your chest, abdominals, toes, and eyes are doing? Did you know that doing these key asanas incorrectly for a long period of time can cause injuries? This workshop is for you!
Join Lisa for an illuminating workshop breaking down these common poses as well as the transitions into and out of them. Lisa will help you find your proper alignment, move from pose to pose with clarity, and offer up ways to continue to build strength and offer possible modifications so you can move forward and continue to learn and work!

Intentional Writing through Asana w/ Emily
Explore the art of your self-expression through both yoga and writing, and use the asana practice as a tool to help you unlock thoughts that may be hiding within.
In this workshop, you will move through a mindful vinyasa flow that is sprinkled with points for you to stop and free-write.
In the second part of the workshop, you will learn about a simple poetic structure, and then use that structure to craft your own poem, which will be rooted in the ideas that sprung forth in the free-writing experience. Everyone will share his/her work in a safe and positive circle at the end of the session and partake in a conversation that explores the relationship of form and meaning.
All participants are welcome – this workshop is open to writers and yoga practitioners of all levels and abilities; all that is required is an excitement about the possibility of uncovering something deep and special along the journey of our time spent in the workshop.
