Prenatal Yoga Series
w/ Rachel Morgan
Wednesdays Jan 8th-Feb 12th
5:45pm – 6:45Pm
Cost: $68 for series or $17 a drop-in
Hooray for pregnancy!
Join Rachel (who is also pregnant!) for this wonderful series. This new & exciting time can be both delightful & challenging for pregnant folks! Yoga is one of the safest and best exercises for pregnancy; both because of it’s wonderful variations for all trimesters, and for its wonderful stress-relieving potential! In this series, we will work on breathing exercises to keep us calm & centered. We will discover some helpful postures for alleviating nausea, sciatica, joint pain, and other difficulties that come up during pregnancy. We will also work on poses to strengthen, stretch and tone our bodies in preparation for childbirth. And we will always end with a sweet guided savasana, connecting to our bodies & our baby as we get some much-deserved relaxation.
Anatomy Series Part 2: More hips revealed
Friday, January 31st
We will complete our exploration of the hip joint and the pelvis! If you missed the first half, you are welcome to attend anyway. There is so much to take in! You learn something new every time you look.
So much more than your average dry anatomy course, we reference 2-D pictures to more precisely map out the muscles on our own bodies and feel the muscles in action 3-D. A fun and interactive approach, you will have a greater felt sense, functional understanding of not only how the joint is structured, but how it works too. We will study the muscles that cross the hip joint with an overview of the discussion from hips part 1–the deep hip rotators, pelvic floor, and abdominal muscles. This class will focus especially on the leg muscles that affect the hip and the deep actions of the joint itself.
Bring your questions, bring your curiosity, and bring your anatomy books!
Jessica is a seasoned 500 ERYT and also a skilled bodyworker with over 1000 hours of study in anatomy and joint function.
The Space Between Breaths –The Stirrings of Spring
Cross-Quarter Day Energy Re-Balancing
w/ Katherine Cartwright
Saturday, February 1st
2 – 3:30 pm
Imbolc. Candlemas. Groundhog Day. The mid-point between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox celebrates the visible return of light and life signs in the natural environment. There’s quickening energy, evident in the first growth beginning to break ground and the blossoming of the snowdrops in the woodlands. We’re looking forward to winter’s end and to the coming of spring. We begin to notice the days are longer. We notice subtle changes in our energy. We might be feeling this in the body, mind, emotions, and spirit. This workshop offers a time of energetic re-balancing. We begin and end in the full light of the day.
Through breathwork, deep relaxation, guided meditation, and receiving Reiki energy and sound healing, we allow the body, mind, emotions, and spirit deep rest and renewal, and return restored, revitalized, and energized.Register Now

Loving the Self as a Radical Act: Fill Your Cup
w/ Jessica Zerr Vanek
Saturday, Feb 8th
Someone once asked me, who profits from your fear? And who profits from your love? The internal answers to these questions were so immediately stark and telling that I was filled with an immediate conviction to transform this relationship inside myself. Every act of love is an act of rebellion. Every act of love brings us closer to wholeness, that wholeness that is our birthright. Even if you don’t fully believe it yet, the practice is potent. After all, as Rumi says, yearning is what the heart loves but doesn’t yet believe.
You will learn tools to keep yourself tuning in to your highest vibration and techniques for caring for your body and soul in simple, easy to apply ways. Be bold and let your heart’s yearnings be nourished.
