A weekend of yoga, music, and good company

Saturday 4:45-6:30PM Yin: Nourishing the Heart
Sunday 11:14AM-1:00PM Vinyasa Pulse: Flow to the Beat of a Drum

Yin: Nourishing the Heart with Lucas Tensen (cello and kora)
Summer is the season of fire, and in Traditional Chinese Medicine relates to the organ of the Heart. Yin Yoga is a practice that allows us to slow down and turn inward. Poses are done close to the floor and are held for 2-5 minutes. In these long passive holds we affect change in our connective tissue, have an opportunity to practice mindfulness, and give ourselves a mini acupressure session. We will focus on poses that nourish the energy pathways of the Heart and Small Intestine organ pairing tapping into joy and compassion. Cool down and embrace stillness!

Vinyasa Pulse: Flow to the Beat of a Drum with Narada Wise
Join Lana and Narada for a Jivamukti-inspired practice with live drumming. A creative and expressive flow that will strengthen, open, and inspire. Expect a merging of mantra, movement, and music!
