Beginner Yoga 5 Week Series
with Kelly Friedberg
Saturdays, April 1 – 29, 2017 • 11:30am – 12:45pm • Main Studio
If you are looking for a way to get back to you, find your calm, learn to be at ease in challenging situations, gain mental and physical strength and flexibility, and be your best self, then join me for five weeks of focused yoga training designed for the “Newbie Yogi”. If you’ve never taken a class, or maybe taken a few, or have been off your mat for a long time and would like to get back; if you are curious about what yoga can do for you, and would like to learn more about the mind body connection in an environment that encourages questions then this series is for you!
Throughout the series, we will dive into the basics of Yoga poses (asanas), Breathing exercises (pranayama), and some meditation (dyhana). Each class will have a physical practice, breath work, open time for questions/discussion, and include aromatherapy and a short, guided meditation that supports the focus of the week.
But don’t let all this yoga talk intimidate you. The poses will be broken down and made accessible to EVERYbody, using modifications and yoga props. This will be a safe, comfortable environment where you will be encouraged and free to exhale, be yourself, and learn! This series is designed to build knowledge each week so committing to the whole series is encouraged, but all weeks will be truly beginner so drop-ins are always welcome, the more the merrier.
$85 for 5 Week Series
$22 for Single Class
A minimum amount of attendees is required to run this series so kindly register by March 25th if you plan to attend the whole series.

The American Sanskrit Institute’s Weekend Immersion Introduction to Sanskrit
with Robin Debreceni
Saturday, May 6, 2017 • 12:00pm – 6:00pm • Main Studio
Sunday, May 7, 2017 • 1:00 – 6:00pm • Main Studio
Perfectly refined, Sanskrit is the language of yoga. Anyone can resonate with Sanskrit’s timeless sounds—and connect to words and ideas incredibly beautiful and profound.
Rewards are many for those who take the time to see, hear and feel the power and elegance of Sanskrit. Those interested in yoga philosophy particularly benefit from this study.
This weekend workshop will give you intimate familiarity with the unique points of resonance in your own palate that support Sanksrit’s sacred sounds. And you’ll be firmly grounded in proper pronunciation of this ancient language.
Along the way you’ll learn the alphabet—itself a lovely chant—and you’ll receive the tools you need to explore your favorite sutras and chants in the beautiful script of Sanskrit, Devanāgarī. ASI’s teaching method, developed over many years by Vyaas Houston, makes learning Sanskrit stress-free and fun!
Robin Debreceni first discovered the study of Sanskrit at an ASI workshop in 2014. After the Introductory Weekend, she continued her studies with Zoe Mai. In addition to attending classes and workshops, Robin currently teaches weekly classes at Trishula Yoga and tutors beginning students when needed. She feels that the study of Sanskrit and applying the ASI learning model has been a transformative force in her daily life.
Register early. Limited to 10 people.
$250 Workbook provided. Complimentary snacks and tea.
