About this Event: Calder means ‘rocky water’ which sums up the experience of a myofascial workshop: Rolling out the tissues in the body to find the tight spots of tension and release the tension using myofascial release therapy balls.
Myofascial release breaks up adhesions and scar tissue in the body, improves circulation and neuromuscular efficiency, relieves soreness and stress, improves range of motion, and corrects muscle imbalance.
This workshop is ideal for all people, regardless of fitness level, who wish to learn a new technique for dealing with muscle tension, fatigue, or tightness.
Supplies needed for this event include a mat or hard surface to roll on, a yoga block or stack of books, a blanket or towel, and 1 set of myofascial release balls. A foam roller is optional.

About this Event: Being upright comes with its challenges! Back pain is the second most common physical complaint (headaches are number one) and the most common cause of job-related disability and a leading contributor to missed work. On a happier note, recent studies show that strengthening and stretching exercises like yoga are more effective for managing chronic back pain than surgery or pain medications and offer little to no harmful side effects. This is good news!
In this six-week Back Care series we will:
• study the basic anatomy and physiology of back pain to uncover common unhealthy habits
• learn and practice healthy alignment and movement patterns (sitting, standing, walking)
• practice gentle stretching and strengthening exercises designed to increase support and balance to the structures of the spine and pelvis, legs and feet
• practice movements that increase circulation, help to relieve pain and speed healing, and build a better mental embody map
You will leave with a well-stocked tool kit of back care savvy that will help you to solve current issues and avoid future problems.
Open to all levels of yoga experience.
Start Date: Mar. 22nd

About this Event: Calling all walkers, hikers, bikers, sitters, or anyone whose body craves attention and relief! If you want to discover new ways to refresh yourself from head to toe, then you need to be here!
In this online workshop you’ll take 2.25 hours to systematically reset the body using massage therapy balls for deep tissue release, and unwind via yoga and corrective exercises. You’ll leave with a sense of ease, balance, length, and lightness.
This hybrid workshop will incorporate yoga, and draw inspiration from practices and tools made popular by Katy Bowman and Jill Miller to target deep tissue and fascial release. Appropriate for newer students, those who need options to modify their practice, as well as longtime students who enjoy a methodical, balanced practice designed to offer access to deeper fascial planes that regular asana does not address.

About this Event: The intention of this program is to encourage a deepening of our meditation practice and, within the refuge of sangha (spiritual community), to share insights and support for living with wisdom and compassion. Each of the 8 online meetings included in this program will begin with a half-hour of meditation followed by an investigation of the first half of Why Buddhism Is True by Robert Wright. (The second half will be covered in Sangha Yoga’s Summer 2021 session.)
This New York Times bestselling book looks at the Buddha’s teachings through the fascinating lens of evolutionary psychology and neuroscience. The author, a long-time Buddhist practitioner, uses both science and his personal experiences with meditation to illustrate how mindfulness really does reduce the suffering we cause ourselves and others.

About this Event: Experience the yogic science of Pranayama, one of the most powerful tools for balancing body and mind, managing stress, and promoting good health and longevity.
Oxygen is our most vital nutrient. However, few of us know what it means to use the full capacity of our lungs. Fewer still know how to use the breath effortlessly, regularly, and freely. How many times have you caught yourself unconsciously holding your breath while in a stressful situation?
Yoga is more than just a tool to gain strength and mobility. It is a complete system of health and fitness that teaches us to manage Prana, the vital life force. Prana is what makes it possible for the body to move and the mind to think. Our state of mind and our physical health are closely related to the quality of Prana within our body. We can influence the flow of Prana through the flow of our breath. Practicing Pranayama replenishes the body, sharpens the mind, soothes the senses, resets the nervous system, and strengthens the immune system.
The results? We begin to live more fully in the moment with less anxiety and fear, which leads us to greater clarity, vitality, and peace.

About this Event: Aham Yoga is deeply passionate about Women’s Health, Aging & Yoga.

The beauty of yoga is it doesn’t matter when you begin. As long as you start…

About this Event: In the Sattva yoga journey, multiple tools of yoga are put together to create a journey with a theme, making them holistic and potentially transformational experiences. In this particular journey, you will explore cosmic consciousness, a state beyond identification with the ego alone. Pranayama, kriyas, meditation and asana will be utilized. Those without experience with kriyas will gain familiarity with the depth these practices offer. They are often repetitive practices, involving movement, the breath, and sometimes mantra. Unlike in drop-in classes, asana will be simply supportive, used to ground and distribute energy after this deep work together.
Date & Time: Apr. 11th @2pm–4pm

Instructor: Cosetta Romani
About this Event: The stresses and strains of changing circumstances have a direct impact on our physical and mental condition. While much of the focus in contemporary yoga is on how to manage our structure, in this series, the focus will be on how to manage the impact of the stress and strains of daily life on your energy.
Interestingly, a large percentage of pharmaceuticals prescribed for managing symptoms of chronic illness are sympathetic/parasympathetic regulators. The Ancients understood how to use the breath to gain control of and regulate the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). So participants will learn how to use breath-centric āsana and prāṇāyāma as functional tools to help you move through life with vitality and relaxation.
Start Date: May 12th
