An 8 hour course in total, this will deepen your understanding and purpose in the practical, physical, and spiritual aspects of practicing yoga. This series will provide you with the tools for examining the foundation of yoga as a foundation for life, and to learn techniques for being more mindful of cultivating meaningful actions both on the mat as well as in your every day life…for the rest of your life!
Aimee Joy Nitzberg leads this offering. Sherry Cassedy will be a special guest teacher, highlighting specific yoga philosophy with her expertise on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Together they will take you on a journey from what is logically true to a direct experience of truth embodied. Ultimately, these practices free us from limitations of body and mental nature and allow us the freedom to experience joy and wholeness — Oneness. Each session will include discussion, light sun salutations, a more vigorous asana practice, chanting, self-reflection and yin poses.

Lower Back Love
Healing Lower Back Pain with Yoga & Mindfulness
INSTRUCTOR: Arthur Coulston
DATE: Saturday, May 16th
Tired of lower back pain? You’re not alone! Most people will experience chronic lower back pain at some point in their lives, many for years on end. Yoga is unique in its ability to address both the physical and emotional components of low back pain. In this all-levels workshop we’ll explore the latest science on back pain, and learn tangible tools for reducing pain and building strong healthy backs.
This work shop will be lead by Arthur Coulston. Arthur compressed his L5 intervertebral disc in a surfing accident at age 17. Combined with a stressful career in tech he was plagued by chronic debilitating lower back pain until he finally discovered yoga at age 30. Now he’s grateful his back only hurts occasionally, and is stoked to help others find their own healing through yoga.
Come give your back some love! All levels of yoga experience welcome!
