Arm Balance Workshop 

with Jackie Dadario

Saturday, February 22, 2020 • 1:00pm – 3:00pm

Arm balances are challenging and fun, but most people find them intimidating and unattainable. This workshop will break all those old thought patterns and get you ready to fly! We will move through a series of preparatory poses to ensure we are safely warmed up and engaged. This workshop will teach you the tools necessary to ensure that you arm balance safely and mindfully, so that you are not relying on momentum or force to lift off, but rather your own strength which is cultivated purposefully. You will be able to incorporate these tools immediately into your existing vinyasa practice, not only to arm balance but also to move your body more efficiently during your practice. We will explore many common arm balances and related variations and, if time permits, any others that you are interested in learning.

Restorative Yoga with Reiki Healing

with Karen Leaming and Caitlin Paulson

Sunday, February 23, 2020 • 1:30pm – 3:00pm

Restorative yoga is a completely passive practice that utilizes props to support our bodies in all of the poses to aid in complete relaxation. By relaxing our muscles, lowering our heart rate, and allowing our nervous system to slow down, restorative yoga helps us to balance our fast-paced lifestyles. As we find stillness in the pose we allow for healing, both physically and mentally, which ultimately supports us in being more focused and effective. Restorative is accessible to people of all ages and skill-levels.
Reiki is a natural stress reliever, pain reducer, and immunity booster. It is drawn from the Universal Energy that we all share. During your restorative flow, Caitlin will go around to each yogi and channel the Reiki energy into your body. She will ask you to let her know if you have any problem areas that she can focus on. During Savasana she will go to each person and ground them, each yogi should leave feeling relaxed and heavily mediated.

Caitlin Paulson has been practicing holistic healing and wellness since 2003. She received her Usui Reiki Level 1 certificate when she was 17 and has used it on a daily basis since. As she got older and endured her own health challenges, it brought her closer to her Reiki practice and dedication to holistic healing. She is now a Usui Reiki Level III Master as well as a Crystal Healing Practitioner. She combines her knowledge of crystals with Reiki to give her clients the most desirable outcome.

Reserve your space! Only 15 spots available.
