Join birth and postpartum doula Rebecca Henry for a very special 6-week Prenatal Yoga Series in July/August! Prenatal yoga is not just a regular yoga class adapted for pregnant people. At a time when everything is changing in your body, prenatal yoga helps moms-to-be reconnect with and build body awareness, stretch, strengthen and release the muscles most easily affected by pregnancy and foster a greater understanding of what is happening with our bodies during pregnancy and childbirth.
This series will give moms a chance to foster a sense of community with other moms, explore techniques for preparing for and coping with labor and help make space for baby to turn into optimal position for labor and birth.
Open to all stages of pregnancy and all levels of yoga experience. Accomodations will be provided for injuries or special conditions. However, if in doubt, we recommend that you consult your physicial before signing up.
It’s often said that we practice yoga so that we can meditate. If you want to take your practice deeper, join LYC teacher Tara Lemerise for this special 3-week mini-series to cultivate a breath-based meditation practice. Meditation is shown to have numerous health benefits, including stress release, impulse control, alleviation of anxiety, and heightened emotional health. In addition, meditation can enhance self-awareness and even generate kindness. It can be practiced by anyone, and uses a variety of techniques to still the mind. One of the easiest forms of meditation involves pranayama. Come in and unlock the secrets to changing your life.
Join us for a community gathering to share a vegetarian potluck lunch and book discussion.

Please email us to let us know what you'd like to contribute to the potluck.
Join Abby in this special workshop where you'll learn practices to connect with, empower, and expand your chakra energy. Chakras are powerful energy centers through which we uptake and transmute Source energy into our physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. As yogis, the chakra system is our most direct and effective tool to work with our own individual energy fields. When we are stressed out or anxious, our physical and energetic bodies contract and tighten, cutting off our ability to communicate with Source energy. In this workshop, we'll learn tools to soften and open our chakras so that we can harmonize more easily with universal energy.
The workshop will begin with ceremony to tap into the guidance of the Four Directions and our ancestral wisdom, followed by a Hatha-Inspired Vinyasa Flow practice to open and warm the physical body. Then, we'll move through breathing practices and a guided meditation that will deepen the visceral experience of prana moving within and around the chakras. Each part of this workshop will build your skillfulness in feeling the chakras. You'll leave feeling relaxed and connected and with actionable tools to continue working with your chakras.

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.
