blue morpho book club
with Natalie & jetta
Yoga, snacks, & soulful book discussion. Class will begin with a gentle yoga flow and then move into a discussion of Dr. Brene Brown’s New York Times best-selling book,"The Gifts of Imperfection". This book explores the themes of fear, self-consciousness, and worthiness to discover the best way to live an authentic, connected life. Yoga practice seeks to align mind, body, and spirit in order to connect with yourself and the world around you. Combine these two for a powerful experience and chance to connect with our community! Snacks and drinks will be provided.

great Balls of fire -
upper body focus
with Tiffany denny
4/7 ~ 11:30-1:30 pm
Relieve tension in your neck, jaw, shoulders, upper back, arms, and hands. In this workshop, we will discuss the reasoning behind mobilizing fascia, or connective tissue, and will practice techniques using blankets, blocks, and Yoga Tune Up® balls. The trick is, it’s not enough to mobilize the soft tissue — to make real changes in the condition and performance of important tissues, we must reeducate the system by actively moving and engaging our bodies through new ranges of motion. This workshop will demonstrate why this is important, and how to accomplish it. These techniques are perfect to use for your own self-care, to incorporate into your yoga classes if you are a yoga teacher, or to incorporate into the home exercise component of your practice if you are a medical professional.
If you register by Mar 20, you will receive a set of Yoga Tune Up® balls or Lacrosse balls (your choice) to take home! Everyone will receive a handout to take home to guide you in home practice of these techniques.
