The summer solstice signals the onset of summer and marks the longest day of the year. It is a time to honor moving from the darkness of winter into the light of summer as crops grow, flowers bloom, animals awaken and people start spending more time being active outdoors under the heat and light of the sun.
Throughout history, many cultures have associated the summer solstice with a renewal of mind, body and spirit and a celebration of creative expression—of art, music and the sense of joyfulness and fun that the sunshine evokes in all of us.
There is a long time tradition in yoga to salute the sun with a series of 12 poses done in succession known as a sun salutation. This series of poses are done to give gratitude for the sun. We practice sun salutations to create “tapas” or inner heat that cleanses the body and the “mandala” or circular pattern of the poses can bring us into a state of moving meditation. Together, uniting our energies with each other, we will embark on this challenging traditional practice of saluting the sun! This will surprisingly leave you filled with new energy!
The sun salutations will be comprised of both full and half sun salutations and divided up into groups of 27 with short breaks in between. Modifications will be offered and encouraged to allow this practice to be accessible for all (previous experience with sun salutations recommended). There is no requirement to do all 108 sun salutations! This event is a unifying celebration of our yoga community. Snacks and water will be available, but we strongly encourage you bring your own water along with a yoga mat and towel.

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!

Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old holistic healing system of India. Ayurveda literally translates to “science of life.” It’s considered the sister science to yoga, encompassing the lifestyle and diet choices based on individual needs that keep us in optimal health.
In this workshop, you’ll learn the basic principles of Ayurveda and the art of healthy living. You’ll gain an understanding of the three doshas (what we’re each made of) and discover your individual dosha. We’ll talk about diet, environment and lifestyle habits, which will help you find your ideal state of balance and realize your fullest human potential.
We will also discuss how your yoga practice can be individualized to help balance your state of wellbeing, and a short yoga practice will be included.
