Fall Equinox Yin and Yoga Nidra


Saturday, September 23rd  |  7-9 pm  |  $30

The Autumn Equinox is the point when day and night are equal in length. The earth is balanced between the two extremes of the year: the Midsummer Solstice, the longest day, and the Midwinter Solstice, the longest night. The Autumn Equinox is rich with symbolism that we’ll integrate in to our yoga practice so that you can integrate it into your life. By aligning your own energies to the natural rhythms of the earth and the suns’ cycles you can more fully enjoy rest, contemplation and renewal during the dormant phase of the year we’re moving into.


Yin Yoga is a soft, still, deep, and nurturing seated practice. It goes beyond stretching the muscles. It opens and creates space in the body while cultivating elasticity in the facial system. Join Brianna Darling to create space in the mind and body that will help ease you into a rich and restful fall. We’ll begin the practice with ritual and end with Yoga Nidra- a guided form of deep relaxation. No experience with this style of yoga required, it is a very friendly practice that welcomes all. Come as you are, just remember to pre-register and pre-pay, this class will be capped at 15 students.

Friday & Saturday’s in October | dates & times below  | $400

Have you ever noticed that not matter how hard you try to make certain things happen it seems as if you are getting nowhere?

Join us to learn how to recognize and harness the natural abilities of intuition and authenticity that can make anyone a great leader, than this training is for you.


This training is not just for yoga teachers, it is for all people who want to get more out of life. Whether you are a nurse, a retiree, a parent, in corporate, or own your own business this training will get you to know your passions, creativity, and highest self. Not only will you learn specific techniques, practices and meditations to build your intuition and connect to your authenticity, but you will also learn how being your authentic self helps to guide others to do the same.

Moon Medicine for Women: Moon in Gemini, Element of Air


Sunday, October 8th | 7-9 pm  |  $35

The essence of high Gemini energy is a radically open, curious mind; the hunger for new information and experience; and the desire to tell about it – to communicate. Gemini has a deep affinity with language.


Gemini resonates with the element of Air and is sensitive to vibration. In this Moon Medicine, Jessa will give a short talk on Gemini and the current phase of the moon. We will experiment with the embodiment of Gemini energy through mantra (chanting) set to music. Exploring the vibrations through stillness, organic movement, our own voices and/or playing instruments (shakers, rattles and drums). The energy and intention of this mantra set to music is very Geminian: to cultivate lightness of heart and youthful energy. We will close our evening sharing with each other about our experience.


Women’s Moon Medicine events with Evolutionary Astrologer, Jessa Walters, are opportunities to learn more about a particular astrological energy, experiment with the embodiment of that energy in our own bodies and share in community with open-minded, soulful women on paths of growth.


Restorative Yoga Teacher Training


Saturday & Sunday’s in October | dates & times below  |  $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.
