Clearing Anxiety: A Yin Workshop with Reiki
Friday, March 23rd

Prop and Modification Workshop
Sunday, March 25th
When one of the most influential Yogis, BKS Iyengar, was suffering from an injury and couldn’t practice Asana (yoga postures) the way he used to, he decided that there had to be a way to make a Yoga practice accessible by using props and modifications. He wanted people of all shapes, sizes and ages to benefit from Yoga and was the first to introduce these modifications to the modern practice of Yoga.
In this workshop we will be exploring the Asana’s (yoga postures) with the use of blocks, blankets, straps, bolsters and even the wall.
This is right for you if you just started a yoga practice or if you’ve been practicing for a while and still have some difficulties with certain poses.
If you like to take notes, feel free to bring a journal.
(This workshop is not based on the traditional Iyengar style)
Clearing the Path: A Ganesha One Day Immersion
w/ Rachel May
Saturday, April 7th
Ganesha is often referenced as the lord of new beginnings; the remover of obstacles; the guardian of boons. While he is all of those things, the understanding and relationship to his consciousness is much more than these simple ideas. Ganesha is the gravitational field. His field of consciousness is that which grounds us, embodies us; that which provides an understanding of what stands in the path to our abundance, our gratitude; that which clarifies what we are attached to that no longer serves us. Ganesha comes quickly and palpably because he is close to the material realm; and he works deeply with our root fears that we are not enough, that there will never be enough, that we will fail, that we are not capable. To come into relationship to Ganesha is to experience embodiment free of these fears; and to practice his sadhana is to have a map, a guide for facing these fears directly so that the path can be cleared.
In this one day immersion, we will dive into meeting Ganesha through the vivid and delightful stories of Sri Vidya. We will then move into his ritualistic practices; the Sri Vidya Ganesha Mantra, the Ganesha Tarpanam, Ganesha Puja, and more. We will learn how to construct a sadhana with him based on what our life can allow and what we feel drawn to. We will start a process of liberating from the ground, up and in.
This is a perfect immersion for anyone looking to deepen their practice; anyone looking to begin Sri Vidya practice; anyone looking to reconnect to sadhana; anyone looking to connect to higher consciousness.Register Now!

Thai Yoga Massage w/ Amanda Kramny
Thai Yoga Massage (TYM) is a healing art developed in Thailand that focuses mainly on stimulating and balancing our Sen Lines, pathways of flowing energy throughout the body. Imbalances in the Sen Lines are excessive amounts or depletion of energy that can be affected by lifestyle, age, or physical condition. The Therapist utilizes her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches while also applying muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure during treatment. Many people say Thai Yoga Massage is like doing yoga without any work and describe the session as both relaxing and energizing.
Thai Yoga Massage is usually done on a padded mat on the floor with the receiver fully and comfortably dressed. A typical session is 60 minutes to two hours long. It is recommend that you do not eat a heavy meal before the massage to avoid any digestive discomfort. Please arrive on time and plan a few moments before the session for a consultation to review your health history with the therapist. If you feel discomfort at any time, communicate with your therapist!
Benefits of Thai Yoga Massage include relief from asthma, migraines, anxiety, relief of emotional tension, improved sleep, improved flexibility, greater awareness of body and mind, a release of blocked energy and is also effective for treating specific neruo-muscular injuries, including muscle pain, spasm, dysfunction and chronic tightness.
