Winter Workshops

 

Yin & Chocolate

Celebrate Valentine's Day by indulging in the ultimate combination! Join us for a playful yet relaxing yin yoga practice and luxurious chocolates to open your body and fulfill your senses. Ideal for a girls' night out or date night!

Just as yin yoga requires you to be in touch with your body and mind, enjoying fine chocolate can be a similar experience. Each yin pose will be paired with a unique variety of chocolate. You'll experience the benefits of yin yoga while consuming chocolate *mindfully* as a way to gain an even deeper appreciation of this delectable treat - yes, it's possible! 

Yin yoga is a deeply nourishing practice, increasing flexibility, releasing stress, lengthening and untangling the deep connective tissues in your body, opening space in your joints, lightening your breath, and leaving you with a deep sense of calm. Yin is an ideal balance to the active and stressful activities that fill our daily lives. No experience required. We’ll spend most of our practice down on the mat supported by lots of great yoga props.

Bring a water bottle or your favorite beverage to cleanse your palate between poses and tastings. Treat yourself to this delicious experience and Valentine's celebration with a significant other or friends.

Wednesday, February 14 - 7:15 - 8:45PM

$25 per pre-registered;  $30 at the door

Please pre-register so we can plan the appropriate amount of chocolate!

Full Moon "Letting Go" Gentle Yoga, Reiki & Reflexology

"Life is full and overflowing with new.  But it is necessary to empty out the old to make room for the new to enter."  Eileen Caddy

Prepare to release any stagnant energy, thoughts or other blockages that challenge you from reaching your potential.  With yin yoga poses that stretch deep into the connective tissues of the body, you'll be guided to release any emotional energy that you wish to let go.  The combination of hands-on Reiki healing energy (by Lola Kennedy) plus reflexology (by Erin Wigman) on the feet and hands allows energy to flow more efficiently in the body - supporting a positive mindset as you create space for your intentions.  Team taught by Allie Brawley, Lola Kennedy and Erin Wigman.

Yin yoga is a deeply nourishing practice that increases flexibility, releases stress, lengthens and untangles the deep connective tissues in your body. Yin poses are designed to relax the muscles through calming poses supported with props to benefit the connective tissues and joints. Practicing yin nourishes your joints, lightens your breath, and leaves you with a deep sense of calm.
