YOGA ASANA YOGA SUTRA PROGRAM
DECEMBER 8th – 12th, Mon – Fri, 7am – 9am

Five Consecutive mornings for $90.

1st Hour: gentle asana. 2nd Hour: reading & discussion on Yoga Sutras
 Any translation of Yoga Sutras is required

“The Yoga Sutras, written by Maharishi Patanjali, is the original textbook of Classical Yoga. It presents the earliest complete experiential Indian Philosophy for self-transformation. To speak of Yoga as merely a philosophy, however, is to trivialize its depth and scope. The Sutras give a detailed description of the subjective experiences associated with each stage of mindfulness, ranging from the preliminary requirements for successful practice to the most advanced intricate aspects of communion with your True Self.”  ~Mukunda Stiles

BETTER BREATHING YOGA COURSE  -for life, health and spirit.
JAN. 6th – FEB. 10th, Tuesdays  7pm- 8:30pm
6 week course for $90 sliding scale offered.
Breathing is the most important activity we do!  It affects our posture, mood, energy and is so vital, we can’t live but a few minutes without it. We take it for granted, and when done poorly it can be a source of dis-ease. Poor breathing habits are linked to high blood pressure, muscle tension, headaches, cold hand/feet, digestive problems, anxiety, chest pain, IBS, fatigue, sleeplessness, nightmares and depression.
You will learn the art and science behind better breathing (pranayama) through yoga postures, breathing techniques and shared theory and research. Connect more intimately to your life breath – Prana!

YOGA & THE POWER OF INTENTION COURSE
JAN. 7th – FEB 11th, Wednesdays 5:30 – 7pm
6 week course for $90 sliding scale offered.
All Levels Welcome.
Your way of thinking has a profound effect on your life. Learning to use intention and affirmation can springboard you out of negativity, stagnation and give you back mental authority, creativity and skill to manifest the life you want.  We will use yoga, free writing, and embodiment practices to refine our intention and empower our positivity.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Prenatal Yoga & Labor Readiness
For many women, the birthing time is one of the most transformational periods of their lives.  Come tune in to the innate wisdom of your body and soul, and connect with other expectant mamas.   Using a yoga therapy approach you will reduce physical discomforts associated with pregnancy, build strength and flexibility, learn breathing techniques to relax the mind and tools helpful for labor and birth.
You are welcome to join the class in any stage of pregnancy and with any fitness level. Partners are welcome at half price.  If you have a history of miscarriage, or have had trouble conceiving, please consult with your caregiver and Corinne or Arden to determine the best time to join.

Parent & Baby Yoga
The first few months of your baby’s life is a precious time.  This class offers an opportunity for either parent and baby to explore the many dimensions of this time in order to bond, nourish and connect with other parents. All practices promote postpartum healing and wellness in an atmosphere that encourages sharing challenges and joyful discoveries.
Often, babies are gently and safely incorporated into the class through partner poses and practices that comfort and support their optimal development. Nursing, walking, bouncing, changing diapers and soothing fussy babies are perfectly normal in this space.
Please bring a yoga mat, baby blanket, toys, baby-wearing wrap or whatever else that you feel is necessary.
