This beginner yoga series is a deep and thoughtful introduction to Yoga as we explore the art of asana. Following the Vinyasa Yoga tradition, we will study the connection of body and breath that allows the practitioner to flow from one posture to the next with steadiness and ease. This series gives new students and anyone looking to refine their practice a chance to learn yoga fundamentals from classic breathing techniques to proper alignment of the basic postures.

After this series you will feel more confident in your poses, have a new understanding of Yoga philosophy, and be ready to jump into our on going weekly classes.

Each workshop is open to anyone and everyone. No previous yoga experience (or flexibility) required.

An Introduction to Kundalini Yoga

INSTRUCTOR: Naomi Charanpal Kaur

DATES: Sunday, January 29th

TIME: 2:00 – 3:30pm

COST: Regular Class Pricing

Often referred to as the ‘yoga of awareness’, Kundalini yoga is an ancient science and technology using breath (pranayam), sound (shabd guru), and specific exercises (kriya), to create a harmonic resonance within the body’s energy centers (chakras).  
Some of the many benefits to the practice include strengthened glandular, nervous, and circulatory systems, as well as a balanced, focused and discerning mind.  On an emotional and heart-centered level, the practice of Kundalini yoga penetrates the sufferings of the subconscious mind.  Age-old patterns and behaviors can be released.  With a dedicated practice, the yogi becomes uplifted to their natural state, their ‘sat nam’, which is a realm of high caliber and grace where one’s highest potential becomes realized.  
In this workshop, you will be introduced to fundamental technologies that can be used in a practical way to bring support and vitality to your unique lifestyle.  For those familiar with the practice, this is a chance to gain deeper insight into the science and technology, as originally taught by Yogi Bhajan.

Handstands & Backbends

INSTRUCTOR: Gabriel Benjamin

DATES: Sunday, February 19th

TIME: 1:30 – 4:00pm

COST: $40

Nothing lifts your spirits like opening the heart and turning upside down!
Come enjoy this afternoon of exploration and integration. We’ll flow through a thoughtful sequence to warm up, preparing the body and mind to build the core and learn to fly! In the second half of the program we will soften the hip flexors and shoulders to prep for deep open back bends and a relaxing finishing sequence. These poses are very energizing and also take a lot of counter action work to function well, making this the perfect workshop to have fun while balancing the tone and suppleness of all the main muscle groups.
Six months vinyasa yoga experience is recommended, but everyone is welcome.
Gabriel B teaches globally and has been a skilled leader in form and alignment, flow, yoga for athletes, and classical pranayama since 2001~ Gabriel is an avid cyclist, writer and chef. He produced his first DVD Dynamic Hatha Yoga in 2016.
