Post-Feast Yoga Recovery

with Karen Kapus

Friday, November 24, 2017 • 10:00am – 11:15am

Join us the day after Thanksgiving for an all-levels class that will help us recover physically after the feast and keep the gratitude flowing in our minds and hearts.

We will begin with dynamic movement and pranayama (breathing exercises) to ignite our internal fire, then incorporate twists and forward folds to support our bodies in cleansing and digestion. Finally we will wind down with a relaxing restorative and yin sequence that will continue to gently aid digestion but also allow our minds to quiet and our hearts to fill with gratitude.

Resolve to Evolve: Yoga for the New Year

with Karen Kapus

Monday, January 1, 2018 • 11:00am – 12:30pm

New Year’s Day is a great time to reflect on the past year with gratitude for our blessings and for releasing those things that no longer serve us, creating space to begin the new year with an intention and cultivate what we would like to bring into our lives in the coming months.

Join Karen as she offers both an all-levels yoga flow class to help build tapas (fiery discipline), unbind and let go of what no longer serves us, and contemplative practices to consider how to meet the future with ease, relaxation and joy through guided meditation and restorative yoga.

Restorative Yoga by Candlelight

with Karen Kapus

Sunday, December 10, 2017 • 6:30pm – 8:30pm

As the days become shorter and colder, our bodies naturally crave slowing down and yet we often get busier and ignore this urge. Restorative yoga is a completely passive practice that utilizes props to support our body 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.

Reserve your space! Only 16 spots available. Feel free to wear your pjs!

Zen and the Art of Accessing Self-Compassion

with Alex Mill

Sunday, November 12, 2017 • 3:30pm – 5:30pm

“When all else fails, love yourself even more”

In our busy lives, we tend to find ourselves caring for other people, obsessing about work, putting out fires and focusing on what’s going on around us. We can lose sight of ourselves and our needs completely. Ironically, the very thing that would assist us lead more powerful and successful lives is what is forsaken in the mad dash struggle to do, do, do — more, more, more.

In Zen and the Art of Accessing Self-Compassion, Alex Mill, former Zen monk of 14 years — now Zen Life Coach, will show you how your inner voices/thoughts keep you on the hamster wheel of dysfunction. Through exercises and guided meditations, he will lead you away from struggle and toward the wise, loving, compassionate mentor inside of you who can transform your life. By the end of the workshop, you will walk away with a taste of the peace, joy and clarity that’s possible. You will also have an opportunity to take the work even further, should you decide to.

$35 Registration closes Friday, November 10 • No walk-ins • Limit 18 participants

Mastering Your Darkness

with Kelly Friedberg

Sunday, October 28, 2017 • 1:00pm – 3:00pm

Join this peaceful practice of Pratyahara, or withdrawal of the senses. We’ll remove one of our biggest sensory inputs, our vision, and move blindfolded, accessing our vision through our third eye. We will go deeper and tune into our bodies, heightening our spacial awareness. Our physical practice will feel free, natural and organic.

Through 3rd eye chakra asana and meditation, we will access our intuitive selves. Mentally peeling back the layers, we will get to the core, our essence. We are the light and the dark, the good and the ‘bad’. We will allow ourselves to feel and get comfortable with all parts of ourselves and access the freedom that comes with being our full selves! From this space we move breathe and feel our essence and our light expand!

This is a very empowering practice that promotes trust, courage, personal growth and acceptance. (Some yoga experience recommended, as we will be blindfolded, but this is an all levels asana practice.)

Curvy Yoga 4 Week Series

with Toni Clayton

Sundays, November 19 – December 10, 2017 • 1:00pm – 2:00pm

  • Knowing and Connecting (to your body and inner self)
  • Modifications & Props
  • Bringing the Practice Home

Curvy Yoga was created to hold a safe and accessible place for curvy-bodied people to experience yoga. While not everyone will instantly (or ever, in some cases) love yoga, the intention is to make it an option for people who never thought it was. Over time, it has evolved into also being a body affirming space for people of all shapes and sizes to practice yoga with lots of options for individual expressions of poses.

During this workshop you will learn how to connect and know yourself in an affirming way (inside and out!) with simple, easy to remember mindful practices that you can take with you wherever you are, whether its at home, the office or even traveling. You’ll also learn modifications, such as widening your stance, and using props to allow space for moving through the poses with lots of accessibility, helping you to find the balance between ease and effort. Finally, we’ll discuss and explore options to bring your practice home, using the wall, chairs and other “at home” props to allow you to make yoga a part of your daily life.

The class instructor, Toni, began practicing yoga while in her 20s. While it started out as mostly physical, she soon realized that a regular yoga practice gave her a much more connected feeling to herself, and the world around her. In 2004, she deepened her connection by taking a 200YTT course at Yoga on Main in Manayunk, hoping to share her love of yoga with others. Through the years she realized, as a person with a bigger body, that modifications and props were often needed to make poses more accessible. So in 2012, she studied with Anna Guest-Jelley and became a certified Curvy Yoga Teacher, knowing this would give her the knowledge she needed to offer yoga to others who thought it might never be accessible to them.

Fall is here! Take advantage of the changing seasons by employing an Ayurvedic detoxifying cleanse. An Ayurvedic cleanse is ideal for restoring your sense of groundedness, improves your energy and sleep, reestablishes your natural state of balance, and prepares you for deep nourishment.

You’ll learn your dosha, understand how to eat during the change of seasons, and prepare yourself for the colder months to come. Please bring a notebook with you.
