Register Spring Renewal

In the Spring many yogis pause and create a sacred inner space to release the accumulation of winter and rejuvenate and align habits for a radiant spring ahead. The practice is usually done twice a year (spring & fall) and is an essential component to Ayurveda, the "sister-science" to yoga that includes self care and cooking food and using herbs and spices as medicine. 

Join Ayurvedic Practioner Natalie Piet and the Karma Yoga community in a gathering of support and discussion about living a life aligned with Nature. 

Course includes comprehensive and updated recipe manual, meal planning and shopping lists, private online forum for daily connecting with group, ancient and modern cleansing theory and more!

"There's no other way on the planet to free your soul unto the destiny and unto God but by serving those who need a hand--smiling at them, wiping away their tears, forgiving them."  ~ Yogi Bhajan

Register The Yoga of Walking
The Yoga of Walking will be a series of classes for 8 weeks for mindfulness based walking on Wednesdays starting March 18 and ending on May 6 from 9-11AM. We will meditate briefly, practice postural alignment, and then walk together outside! Approx. 4-5 miles.
 
This is yoga off the mat!! Walking in good alignment with proper support to the breath will be the central focus. How can we align our bodies to support the fullest, most natural breath? It turns out that walking with correct posture is one of the most healing things we can do for our bodies. Not to mention being outside in nature and spending time in community! We will learn how some of our postural habits keep us in a state of imbalance in the body, which can have a domino effect on sore joints and imbalanced breathing. By making a few simple corrections, and practicing together, we can learn a new way to move and be free!

Register Detoxing and Creating Your Home Healing Environment

Anna Versaci is a professional Interior Designer and Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) with a strong passion for merging the two worlds together - yoga and home.

In this workshop you will learn simple modifications to create a more healing home space. You can spend all your time eating clean, detoxing your body, and practicing yoga on your mat but there are many things people do not realize about how their home environment can be contributing to added stress and toxicity. We will explore topics like light pollution, what clutter does to the nervous system, house plants and which ones to choose, common home toxin sources, construction/remodeling issues, proper abatement of mold and asbestos, and using color and art to stimulate and uplift your senses. The most important thing is to make sure your home is free of the biggest enemies: water (mold), active contaminants like asbestos and inhaled compounds, and off-gassing from newer materials such as MDF. Once the air in the home is clean and clear, we can begin to work on how to enhance the environment to better put us in touch with our circadian rhythms and our ability to relax and restore. Your home is your sanctuary, and should be a place that fortifies your yogic lifestyle, not works against it. With a few changes and some greater awareness, you can drastically enhance your environment for optimal well being.
