Bringing The Moon On the Mat with Maryanne THIS Saturday

Have you ever felt off for a few days and someone points out it is a full moon and you can't help but think "why would that effect me?" Maryanne Abdulhadi, our Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, will let you know the moon cycle just about every time she teaches. But why? Why is the moon incorporated into the yoga practice?

This workshop will dive into the moon cycle and its place on the yoga mat, how it effects us off the mat, guided Moon Salutations, and you will leave with the Moon Calendar for this year. This is a workshop for the new practitioner to the weathered practitioner.

All levels, genders, and ages welcome! Bring a yoga mat and an open mind.

Saturday, March 11 from 6-8 pm.

Cost is $25.  Sign up here.

Back Care Workshop

Back Care Workshop

*Space Still Available*

Sunday, July 27 from 1-3 pm with Silica & Sarah Oliver

This will be a full-body experience blending directed effort, release, and attention to bring us closer to full, healthy functioning in the spine. The spine is our central point, the basis for everything we do in our bodies, but we can become disconnected to it in one or multiple areas, manifesting as pain/restriction in the spine itself, or in the major joint areas--hips and shoulders.

Join Southern Om teachers Sarah Oliver and Silica Larkin as we explore the 5 principles of re-engagement and awakening of the spine and the relationship of major joints to the spine for maximum suppleness, health, power, and ease.

Equipment needed: yoga mat, towel and water. Cost is $25.  Appropriate for yogis at all levels.

Sign up online or at the Front Desk.
