April 19 – May 31 2018
This 7-week program is designed to introduce male students to the physical practice of yoga in a slow, safe and comprehensive manner, and in a manner designed specifically for the male body. A smaller class size allows for more individual attention, detailed instructions (including modifications for all needs and abilities), hands-on adjustments, and questions. At the end of this workshop students will be prepared to transition into our regularly scheduled classes, and will be equipped with the knowledge of how to modify postures for their specific body types, within a regular class setting. First-timers welcome.
Investment: $160 for 7 sessions. No class passes.
Candlelit Doweling and Self-Massage – with David Bruni
This unique workshop will focus on highly effective, yet very simple techniques to quickly soften the muscles and tendons and sooth the superficial nervous system. The dowel is 2 feet in length and made of wood. Doweling is a form of self-therapy used to loosen layers of tension and stress that lie beneath the surface of the skin. The sensations created by the dowel are similar to receiving a massage, but you remain in control of the pressure applied. Basic yoga poses will be used to create strength and mobility in the shoulders, hips, and knees. Then, students will employ the dowel to release connective tissue and tense muscles. The results will have students feeling as strong as they are flexible, as they are soft; the perfect balance.
*All equipment provided. Dowel kits available for purchase.

Living Meditation: Afternoon of Learning, Healing, Growth; with Amanda Vitaro
During meditation, the individual trains the mind to acknowledge it’s content without becoming identified with that content. Living Meditation is an approach that can aid anyone who is looking to make the most out of life or navigate challenges on his/her path. Whether you’re ready to start a daily 45 minute practice or just learn some tools to shift your mood when you need to, Living Meditation is an excellent resource, as its essential factor is its application to conscious living.
In this afternoon of learning, healing and growing, we will explore yoga in its entirety, through asana, discussion, contemplation, and meditation. Yoga is a never ending process of transformation. It is the healing of ourselves to be joined back with our natural state of loving kindness. Transformation happens when you take the time to explore the vast depths of yourself. But in the modern yoga world, a large emphasis has been put on the physical practice, while dimming the light and significance of all of the other practices that yoga involves. While important, there is so much more healing that come from going beyond a physical practice. When we take it to the next stage of taking time to sit down and go inward, your deepest most subtle energies can be found and connected with. This is where true transformation happens. This is how yoga becomes a way of life, rather than a practice that you occasionally come to.
In the workshop, you will use techniques to dig really deep within to observe, learn, heal and find freedom. Complimentary journals, refreshments and snacks will be provided.
No prior mediation experience required.
Date: Sunday, March 25, 2-5pm

Learn To Take Flight – with Lisa Pisano
This arm balance workshop is appropriate for students of all levels, regardless of whether or not your feet have ever left the ground in a yoga pose. In this fun and exhilarating workshop, students will learn how to lift off with mindfulness and ease. Various poses such as Bakasana (crow pose), Parsva Bakasana (side crow), Astavakrasana (eight angle pose), and Eka Pada Koundinyasana will be explored. Arm balances strengthen the muscles, bones and joints of the hands, arms, chest, shoulders, back and abdominals. They also increase blood flow to these parts of the body. The mind becomes more focused and content when yogic flight is achieved. This playful and challenging workshop will focus on building upper body strength as well as deep core work which are required in all arm balance poses. Learn what it feels like to balance your body with your feet off the ground. Are you ready to fly?
