Arm Balances & Inversions Workshop

stevi forearm balance

Arm balances and inversions can be challenging, because they require a great deal of upper body and core strength, as well as flexibility.  In this 2 hour class, we will warm up to some basic arm balances and inversions (like crow, firefly, and forearm balance). Beginners can work on these basics–honing their skills–while Intermediate yogis can blend these tricky postures together for some hybrid fun on the mat.  Pre-requisite: an open mind, a sense of adventure, and an ability to support weight in your hands (healthy wrists!). Sat, Mar. 24th; 10:30AM-12:30PM Register Now:  $20 for Members/ $25 Non-Members

Ayurveda: Holistic Healing in Winter


Ayurveda is considered the sister science to yoga. It is a holistic system of healing and translates to the “knowledge of life.” The goal of Ayurveda is to keep the body and mind balanced and in a state of good health. It does this by working with diet and lifestyle for the unique individual. In this workshop we will learn how to use the tools of this ancient system of wellness to help balance our unique constitutions and the effects of our environment. We will practice yoga asanas curated for the individual, pulse & tongue diagnosis, pranayama and meditation and study diet and daily habits for well being.
