Breathe to Heal

Katie Mayeux's Breathe to Heal workshop on August 31st was sold out and a huge success. The testimonials from participants were numerous, heart-felt and truly inspiring. Katie is a gifted teacher who lives her practice and is devoted to sharing what she's learned with others. After her amazing workshop, we simply had to ask her to come back when she returns south on her East Coast tour.

September's workshop will focus exclusively on breath work. Breath work is an active meditation technique designed to take you out of the head and into the heart. This active meditation purges the body of stuck energy and emotions to allow space for deeper connection and a greater sense of ease and flow. It’s part catharsis part adult temper tantrum and it feels oh so good to fully feel. We gather in community to cocreate a container to dive deep into our hearts, we leave feeling lighter more grounded and connected to our tribe. Cost is $30

Transitions Workshop

1:00 PM13:00

Transitions Workshop

We’ve all been there… holding our first challenging arm-balance or inversion only to find our teacher offer yet a NEW seemingly impossible yoga pose. Yet with time, focus, and a whole lot of bouncing back and forth between frustration and dedication, we find ourselves slipping into the next pose, and the next one, and the next.

But what about the space in between? You know… that moment of chaos until you find your balance.

Join Liz Corwin as she leads this 2 hour exploratory workshop of transitioning chaos into grace. This workshop will leave you with a new energetic understanding of the chaos we often experience in between seemingly separate asanas. Yoga means to yoke, to bring together. We do not DO yoga, we ARE yoga. Therefore, every moment, every transition is part of the practice to learn to be present, to witness, and not to miss. Learn to float from Headstand to Bakasana, Astavakrasana to Koundinyasana and back, Handstand to Chataranga, Vasistasana to Hanumanasana, Wheel to Tadasana and more. As well as learn the meaning and stories behind these traditional sanksrit words. Cost $35 CEU’s available for Yoga Alliance registered instructors

* Suitable for students with previous yoga experience.

What Remains: A Grief and Loss Workshop with Becca Childress

When a portion of this wholeness is removed, what remains is still whole and perfect. ~Translated from the Upanishads

*Essential oils will be used in this class.

108 Sun Salutations Spring Equinox Mala
Mar
24
8:00 AM08:00

108 Sun Salutations Spring Equinox Mala

The number 108 has long been considered a sacred number in Hinduism and yoga. Traditionally, malas, or garlands of prayer beads, come as a string of 108 (plus one for the “guru bead,” around which the other 108 beads turn like the planets around the sun); malas are frequently used to count during meditation.

Practicing 108 Sun Salutations is reserved for special occasions like the change of the seasons. The Spring Equinox, one of two times during the year that the day and night are equal lengths, represents a time of rebirth and new beginnings, making it a great time to detoxify, cleans and reconnect with yourself.

Completing 108 Sun Salutations, can be challenging. But as you develop a rhythm, you will find a state of ease, and a sense of flow. Practicing 108 Sun Salutations is ultimately about surrendering to the process, acknowledging what arises emotionally, then letting it go. When you finish, you will feel lighter and find meaning in this ancient ritual. We hope you’ll join us!

This is a donation-based event. All proceeds will go to The Table at St. George’s
