The Art of Saluting the Sun

Saturday, January 21st | 1-3 pm  | $25

The beauty of a vinyasa class is pairing breath with movement. That doesn’t leave a lot of time to think through the alignment of our bodies while we move through a Sun Salutation. We will break down the key poses (plank, downward facing dog, upward facing dog) and safe alignment to find freedom to flow! Join Sara for this amazing workshop that will build a more alignment based practice and heat.

Women’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Scorpio, Element of Water

Saturday, January 21st | 7-9 pm  | $30

 

This workshop is full. Please email lucia@yessyogastudio.com to be on the waitlist.

Scorpio invites us to engage with depth, intensity and honesty with ourselves and each other, to seek truth, to venture courageously into the Shadow, the Underworld, to unearth what has been hidden, exiled or repressed that it may be brought into the light of awareness to be understood, transformed and integrated. A willingness to do this deep inner and interpersonal work is at the core of reclaiming personal power, integrity, wholeness and an unshakable open heart. Through radical transparency and the capacity to be with that which makes us uncomfortable, we become brighter human beings with more capacity to catalyze transformation in our own hearts, in our relationships and our wider communities.

 

Our evening together is an opportunity to experience a felt sense of the high ground of Scorpio through a Soul-Seeing Ritual, a conscious Journey into the Underworld through authentic movement to music (lightly guided) followed by Re-Emergence into deep sharing and Scorpionic gift-giving within the circle. Please bring a gift to share with the group which expresses your take on the essence of Scorpio. You could share a poem, a song (to sing yourself, together, or to play via phone/speakers), movement, a gesture, imagery, etc. Something from your soul to share as an offering within our group of women. Moon Medicine is led by Jessa Walters. Contact Jessa if you have questions regarding the content of this workshop: jessa@jessawalters.com

Restorative Yoga Training

First two weekend in February| Email: lucia@yessyogastudio.com  | $400

 

Ancient Yogi’s knew that stress was the major cause of illness and dis-ease in the body, and thus created a entire system of wellness to clam the nervous system, increase the flow of prana (life-force), and promote overall mental and physical wellbeing. However, our modern world is even more stressed than ever before in history. That’s why Restorative yoga was created, to counteract the extreme demands of modern living. Join Marnie at Yess Yoga to learn the techniques, poses, and science behind this practical and vital yoga practice. Over two weekends you will learn about setting the mood for total body relaxation, restorative yoga poses, how to use props to support students, and the science behind rest and stress. This training is unique and is intended for you to become a more diverse and inclusive yoga teacher.

 

Dates:
Friday, February 3rd: 7:30-9:30 pm
Saturday, February 4th: 11:30-7pm
Friday, February 10th: 7:30-9:30 pm

Ashtanga Yoga 2 Hour Workshop

February 19th| 12:30-2:30 pm  |  $20

The Ashtanga Yoga practice, which was transmitted to the world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, is a physically vigorous form of yoga which includes synchronization of the breath and movement within a set sequence of postures.  The focus on the breath allows the practitioner to let go of distracting thoughts, or “control the mind.”  This two-hour workshop will include a full practice of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga along with time for workshopping postures and asking questions.  Yogis new to Ashtanga are welcome!

Pisces Moon Medicine

Sunday, February 26th | 7-9 pm  | $30

 

Piscean energy is embodied as the archetypes of the Mystic, the Seer, the Artist, the Dreamer. The high ground expression of Pisces is higher consciousness itself. Non-dual, unity consciousness. In the words of Don Juan Matus (quoted by Carlos Castaneda), “We are luminous beings. We are perceivers. We are an awareness; we are not objects; we have no solidity. We are boundless.” You are invited to bask in the vast, oceanic space of this evening’s Pisces Moon, and connect with your own sense of the Infinite. Our evening together will include communion with the Great Silence (meditation), surrender into the higher consciousness of oneness and compassion (restorative yoga within a container of metta/lovingkindness) and absorption into creative process (mandala creation). Please wear comfortable clothing in which you feel relaxed and at ease. Moon Medicine is led by Jessa Walters

It’s a time to open up and enjoy the freshness of each breath. The Spring Maiden is mistress of the hunt. She is grace. She is full of potential and opportunity. She is pure. She is unfolding into the rich beauty of her essence.

This renewal practice for women will include gentle yoga postures, organic movement exercises, intuition building practices, meditation, and visualization that allow you to surrender into the cycles of nature. By doing so, we will embrace our inner light and power.
