Past Events

"Many mystics believe that human beings have a built in guidance system that takes us home to the Source of Being... But rather than being embedded in our brain, that magnet for our spiritual journey is located in our hearts.”  - Joan Borysenko

The yoga practice offers each one of us the opportunity to attune more deeply with our bodies, minds, and hearts.  Each yoga pose offers the possibility to journey within and explore the vast space that resides inside.  In this workshop, we will utilize the outer expressions of the poses to point our attention inward and journey to the heart.  Detailed alignment cues ask us to look deep inside and discover our capacity.

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” - Rumi

Workshops & Events

Saturday, October 10th 1:00-4:00pm


In yoga asana, the shoulder and hip regions are sometimes referred to as the four corners of the body. When we stabilize and mobilize the shoulders and hips, it can lead to a greater sense of freedom in the spine. In this class, we will access possibility in the hips and shoulders via rotation, extension and flexion. This four-corner focus creates more spaciousness throughout the spine as we dive into back bending postures.

Sunday, October 11th 12:00-2:30pm

Hip Openings and Arm Balances

What is required to do an arm balance is so much more than arm strength. Depending on the type of arm balance, it can be extremely beneficial to open your hips to make the shapes more accessible. Also, intricate and nuanced strengthening actions can help the poses become light and buoyant. In this workshop, we will explore and break down the component parts of some arm balance postures. Regardless of whether you take flight, you will practice hip opening postures and learn detailed strengthening actions, along with some fun tricks to progress you on the path.
