  • Racism in the Yoga Community

    Two-part workshop with Dr. Monea T. Abdul-Majeed. September 21-22, 2-4 pm

    Part 1: On Saturday we’ll define implicit racial bias and identify how it shows up in yoga communities, and we’ll take a look at spiritual by-passing and micro-aggressions, and how these affect us as yogis. The conversation will be one that is rooted in honesty and sharing, allowing time for self-reflection. Most importantly, we will discuss what you can do to eliminate racism.

    Part 2: On Sunday we will take a deeper dive into soul-utions for yoga studios and beyond. Through discussion, sharing and small-group exercises, we’ll dig into implicit bias and then apply it to scenarios outside the yoga studio walls as well as within. The day will also provide resources to help you along on your anti-racism journey.

  • Rest for All: Restorative Yoga Workshop
    with Tara Lemerise

    What if we trained our bodies to rest in the same way we train our bodies to be stronger in fitness classes? Tara’s unique style of teaching Restorative Yoga applies the concept of a circuit-style work-out to Restorative Yoga. All of the bolsters, blankets and blocks required for Restorative Yoga postures are skillfully arranged into stations before you arrive so all you have to do is show up and rest. This profound, purposeful kind of resting can eliminate fatigue, expedite recovery from injuries, ease experiences of anxiety, and help you develop resistance to the impact of stress on your physical and mental health, plus so much more!

    Everyone welcome.

  • Becoming the Best Birth Partner
    with Rebecca Henry

    Becoming the Best Birth Partner: A hands on, yoga based, couples workshop to help prepare for labor.

    Join prenatal yoga teacher and birth and postpartum doula Rebecca Henry for a fun partner workshop that will bring together childbirth education and yoga techniques to help you learn how to be a rock solid birth partner.

    Many of the postures and breathing techniques practiced in prenatal yoga classes are not only natural birthing positions, but can also serve as comfort during pregnancy and labor. This is especially effective with additional support and pressure from the hands of a loving partner.

    Women often intuitively know what positions serve them best during labor, but partners are often at a loss of how best they can help them move between and support them in these positions. Natural labor progression is always enhanced when a mom feels supported and comforted by the people surrounding her. This workshop will focus on teaching birth partners how they can take an active, physical role in the pregnancy, labor and birth process, and therefore be a more relaxing presence for mom.
