In this 4-week series, we will explore myofascial release and variations of standing and seated asanas that help us balance strength and flexibility in the pelvis. Tightness and prolonged contraction of the pelvic floor muscles can cause lower back pain and can contribute to misalignment of the sacrum so we will learn some techniques to counter asymmetry in the pelvis and all the things our pelvises are missing out on when we spend too much time sitting in chairs!
This series is appropriate for students of all levels. Students with injuries are welcome and variations will be offered.
Prenatal yoga is not just a regular yoga class adapted for pregnant people. Join birth and postpartum doula Rebecca Henry for a very special 6-week Prenatal Yoga Series this fall.
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 physician before signing up.
This postnatal class series, designed for moms with babies 6-weeks to pre-crawling, will focus on strengthening, stabilizing and stretching all of the areas of the body hit hardest by pregnancy, childbirth and caring for baby.
This includes your chest and back muscles, your core and pelvic floor as well as your shoulders, neck and wrists.
Restorative poses throughout each class will help soothe baby-addled nerves. With babies welcome in class, you can feel free to stop your practice anytime you need to care for baby. Each class gives you a chance to connect with other new moms in the community and talk about any issues you are having with your post baby body.

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.
In this series, we will learn variations for many common standing and seated poses using the chair. Most postures can be modified to be done either sitting in a chair or using a chair for support. This is a great tool for stability for students who need a little firmer footing, and also a stealthy way to get some yoga in while sitting at your desk.
Men handle work and family responsibilities on a daily basis. A regular spiritual practice is crucial for men to manage life pressures, cultivate relationships, and maintain a happy and healthy lifestyle.
Join Brian Carr and Patrick Chapman in this three-hour workshop to:
1) Practice kriyas and meditations to expand your awareness and develop a peaceful mind.
2) Explore Kundalini Yoga, relate with other men, and reflect about how Kundalini Yoga can be applied to your daily life.
Both new and experienced yoga students are welcome to attend.

Boundaries are our energetic containers - how we manage our life force both internally and externally. Boundaries have many definitions and purposes - and how you individually relate to them is hugely important in your life. They can have a positive or negative impact on our lives, depending upon how we use the power inherent in them. Mindfully managed, boundaries support and protect us, and feed our spirits. Used incorrectly, boundaries can cause drama in many aspects of our lives. Without boundaries, we can become depleted and compromise our energy. When we become more skillful in setting appropriate and healthy boundaries, we actually create more freedom!
A week of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation with Jiwan Shakti Kaur (Julie Eisenberg) of Lighthouse Yoga Center and Sada Sat Kaur at the Yoga Borgo gives you the opportunity to experience the tranquility, balance and health that comes from living a yogic life. Our Kundalini Yoga Retreat to Italy will help you reboot your system! May 16-23, Yoga Borgo, Umbria, Italy
For far too long, “racism” has been the elephant in the room. It’s been covered, downplayed, spiritually bypassed, or ignored.
Now is the time to lift the veil, confront racism and work together to dismantle it. There’s no better place to do the messy digging of antiracism than a yoga studio.
This workshop is for you if you….
This series will take you deep into your own healing and allow you to learn yogic tools to support your healing process.
This workshop will include breath work, yoga movement, rest, relaxation, and meditation.
