Refine Your Asana

4 Weeks of Focused Study
JUNE 2, 9, 16, & 23, 2018 · The Yoga Shala
1:30-3:30 PM
$85 for entire series or $25/session

In this focused study, we will deepen our practice with longer holds. Pranayama and meditation will ground the series, and each week increasing time devoted to it (adding a few variations of both). The focused study will work in a progression - building towards various binds, arm balances, inversions, twists and back bends. This study suits someone with at least one year of dedicated practice and is interested in continuing to develop their personal yoga practice that is unique to them. Much of the practice is slow & focused with regards to timing, listening, alignment, and knowing when to hold back as well as when to push perceived limits. Focused poses are below but each week will still have a warming build so you likely see some of the same poses multiple sessions.

Week 1: Chaturanga, Headstand, & Lotus (half and full bound lotus and variations to get you there).

Week 2: Splits, Shoulderstand, Crow & various seated poses.

Week 3: Forearm balancing/dolphin, Backbends and Headstand 2nd option.

Week 4: Shoulder press, Crow, Flying pigeon & various seated bound poses.

Watercoloring & Yoga: Unleash Your Creativity

We are creative beings.  Tap into that! 
APRIL 29, 2018 · The Yoga Shala
2–4 PM
$55

Explore the medium of watercolor art in a safe and non-judgmental atmosphere.

In this yoga and watercoloring workshop focus on the creative process as a playful adventure - just like a yoga practice - it remains a process rather than something to be perfected. 

Yoga teacher Jess Sandhu will guide your through relaxing yoga practice with a short visualization meditation. And then Brand Marketing Artist Lindsay Adams will guide you into an understanding of how to mix colors and use the brush!

There are three stenciled drawings on offer for you to explore/choose from and/or you can create something on your own on watercolor paper. 

Let the workshop be another way to meditate. Just as the Buddhist monks do. 

All art materials will be provided, and tea and cookies will be served!!
