About this Event: Just as the acorn holds the entirety of the oak tree within it, we hold within ourselves a full and unique human being. For the tree to reach its optimal expression it needs the ideal combination of soil, water, light and attention. We are the same, and the practices of yoga are a beautiful way to nourish our body-mind-heart with movement, breath, light and awareness. With the dawning of a new year we have the cyclical gift of renewal. This new start is a beautiful time to rediscover what supports and nourishes us, so we can fully express and embody our most authentic self, moment to moment, breath to breath.
Come enjoy the blessings of community and practice on this auspicious first day of 2020. All levels are welcome.

In this class, you will practice asana, pranayama and a guided, seated meditation. All levels of practitioners are welcome. Join and send ripples of peace out into the world.
As the Dalai Lama says, “If an individual were to make conscious intention to live his or her life with a sense of purpose, live it in a good way, then the ripple effect of that really spreads. First, from the individual to the family, then to the community… and so on. This is how society gets changed and effected.”

About this Event: Join Leah Zaccaria on the first day of 2020 for an invigorating Sankalpa practice. A sankalpa is an intention or a determination, will or desire. It is to invoke what you want in your life. Instead of making a New Year’s resolution to deprive yourself or take away, let’s set sankalpas instead!
This workshop will start with an opening ceremony and meditation, followed by a strong challenging flow, ending with a closing ceremony.
You will leave inspired and determined to bring all things good to your life in 2020 and beyond!

About this Event: Dharma comes from the root dhru which means to support or to bear. From one perspective, our dharma is that which supports and sustains us. Dharma is also that which nurtures us and, in turn, our society. As we practice yoga and gently shed constrictive patterns in our body, mind, and hearts, our dharma (the life that nourishes and sustains us) becomes clearer and clearer and we have less ability to live a life that is out of alignment with our personal truths and less capacity to just “get by.” Our wisdom and intuition begin to guide us rather than familial or societal expectations or conditioning. This is a place of true power and fulfillment.
Join Elizabeth on New Year’s day to gather in community, practice, and contemplation to create a sacred space where you can hear your deeper, truths, wisdom and intuition and give them a voice and a direction. You will dream big and dwell in possibility for a while envisioning 2020 as a blank canvas upon which to design this coming year to live your dharma more clearly, powerfully and consistently. You know you are living your dharma when the work of your life lights you up, evolves your spirit and is in some way a contribution.
Date & Time: Jan 1st @1pm-3pm
Instructor: Ellen Boyle

About this Event: The New Year can be an exciting time full of opportunity, inspiration and change. Often the pressure and expectation to meet grandiose goals can feel like setting oneself up for failure, right out of the gate. This year, you can begin by deepening the connection to self through meditation, movement, breath, and contemplation. In this workshop, you will learn to create spaciousness, and become more at ease in a world that is noisy, reactive, and demands discernment at a moments notice.
Begin 2020 in community! Join Jenna & friends for a strong vinyasa flow, some inner quiet practice, and reflection.
Date & Time: Jan. 1st, 2020 @1:30pm-3:30pm
Instructor: Jenna Buckley
About this Event: Give yourself the gift of space this New Years Day. In this extended yin yoga class, you will practice moving mindfully through poses, holding each one for several minutes while you allow gravity to support you, props to settle you, and breathwork to evoke feelings of rest and space.
It is in the quiet, the allowing, and the non-doing that there is room for insight, possibility, and discovery. Maybe even finding beauty resting in the mystery.
This workshop offers space, tools, and techniques to practice self-compassion, being with life as it is in the present moment and in the quiet pauses in-between, rather than viewing ourselves as self-improvement projects.
This is a time to gift yourself the same kindness and care that you might wish for a good friend.
Date & Time: Jan. 1st @4:30pm-6pm
Instructor: Leah Adams

About this Event: The holiday season can be a time of joy and excitement, but it can also leave us physically and mentally exhausted. On top of our usual everyday routine, many of us have to make time to purchase gifts, set up decorations, go to or host parties, and follow other holiday traditions. No wonder by the time January comes around we can feel depleted and off-balance!
Release the old energetic gunk and usher in new positive energy by welcoming the New Year with a Chakra tune-up practice that will use asana (yoga poses), guided relaxation, breath work, and meditation to purify the body, soothe the senses, reset the nervous system, and clear the mind. When your energy centers are properly maintained, they enliven your inner intelligence and bring more harmony to your life.
Date & Time: Jan. 4th @4:30pm-7pm
Instructor: Carina Terra
About this Event: Winter slows us down, completing the seasonal cycle with rest, nourishment and healing so you can begin again. Using the container of Yin Yoga, shift into deep sensation and breath as you arrive. By slowing down and feeling, the body and mind recalibrate, creating an environment of healing. You’ll then transition into the moving meditation of Vinyasa Yoga.
These accessible tools weave presence into what matters most, making it all feel new again. Jennifer has been teaching yoga for 18 years and would be honored to support your experience and understanding of yoga.
This workshop is open to all.
Date & Time: Jan. 5th @4:30pm-7pm
Instructor: Jennifer Isaacson
