  • September 6th – “Moon Salutations.” In celebration of the full moon, we will be practicing Moon Salutations. Turning our focus inwards, for a soothing and gentle practice.
  • September 13th – “Prop it!” Every second Wednesday of the month we will explore variations to a few yoga poses using props. The use of props allows the student a deeper experience of a pose, making it more accessible to all.
  • September 20th – “Building the Container”. This practice focuses on building strength and ease in the core. In yoga, our chain of muscles surrounding and supporting the core is called “the container”, which holds not only physical strength, but energetic as well. Learn how to access your inner strength with ease.
  • September 27th – “Joints & Glands”. This gentle and easy practice can be done almost anywhere! We will cover simple movements, self-massage, and relaxation that will leave you feeling refreshed and nurtured.
  • October 4th – “Chakras & Mantras.” The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit language and translates to ‘wheel’. Often described as ‘wheels of light’ a chakra is an energy center in the human body aligned with the spine. Join us for this practice where we will explore the chakras, and end with a chanting meditation of the Bija mantras associated with each chakra. Chanting these sounds brings us into resonance with the qualities and strengths of the center.
  • October 11th – “Prop it!” Every second Wednesday of the month we will explore variations to a few yoga poses using props. The use of props allows the student a deeper experience of a pose, making it more accessible to all.
  • October 18th – “Ayurveda & Asana for Fall”. Fall is the time of Vata in Ayurveda teachings. This class will focus on grounding, nurturing, and warming practices that help to balance out the qualities of Vata, which can be thrown out of balance during the autumn season.
  • October 25th – “Get Twisted”. Our focus will be twists as well as stretches that open up the sides of the body. Twists aid in digestion by massaging the internal organs, and can help to increase flexibility in the spine and abdominal muscles.

AYURVEDA 101 with Jen Stern Saturday, September 23, 1-4pm

Ayurveda is the 5,000-year-old holistic healing system of India and the sister science of Yoga. According to Ayurveda, the five elements (space, air, fire, water, and earth) manifest in each of us in a unique way to give us our physical and mental qualities.

These five basic elements then combine into three constitutions or doshas: vata, pitta, and kapha.
The unique combination of the three doshas in each individual has a specific influence on our physical, mental, and emotional tendencies. Determining which dosha(s) are dominant can help you to make the right diet and lifestyle choices that will maintain balance and promote health and well-being on all levels.
Learn the basics of:

Mindful eating

Daily lifestyle practices

Appropriate yoga for your constitution

Start living more intelligently today by embracing an Ayurvedic lifestyle!
Refreshments will be served
Chai Tea & Snacks
