meet your chakras
with mia white
saturday, february 24, 2018, 1:00-3:00 pm
The chakras are the seven energy centers of the body. When they’re strong and balanced, we feel grounded, creative, confident, compassionate, clear in our communications, insightful, and connected to our mind-body-spirit. In this workshop, we will explore the significance and opportunities of each chakra while opening and strengthening them through meditation, journaling, and active yoga practice. You are guaranteed to leave with a greater sense of empowerment to bring forth your best! Bring a journal, a pen, a water bottle, and your curiosity!

yoga anatomy 101: shoulders
with lynsie mckeown
Sunday, March 11, 2018 1:00-3:30 pm
The most common injury in yoga occurs in the shoulder. It is an incredibly mobile joint allowing a wide range of movements. However, without proper awareness of how to stabilize the joint, we become vulnerable to repetitive use injuries. Yoga asana requires a lot of repetition! Learn basic shoulder anatomy, how to create stability and maintain integrity of the shoulder so you can advance safely in your practice. This workshop is part lecture and part experiential practice so bring a notebook, pen and yoga mat.
This workshop is part of a larger series of workshops focusing on the anatomy and biomechanics of the body. Have a particular interest in a part of the body? Let us know and we will develop a workshop around it. Email us at: email@example.com
Yoga for Happy Hips
with mia white
saturday, march 24, 2018, 1:00-3:30 pm
The hips are the largest joints in the body and, as such, are a place where a lot of energy is transferred––or stuck. For those who spend a lot of time sitting, or even for those who don’t, the modern world doesn’t give us much opportunity to move our bodies in all the ways they’re designed to move, to keep them healthy. Yoga to the rescue!
Mia White combines her many years of experience in yoga and massage therapy (www.miawhitemassage.com) to bring you this fun and informative 2-hour workshop. You will:
gently nudge your hips open in every direction, and feel how this benefits your whole body
learn about the anatomy and physiology of your hips, their connection to low back, legs, and knees, why and how to keep them flexible and strong
learn about the energetic significance of your hips as part of the 2nd chakra
take away some new skills for keeping your hips happier at home or office
get ready for all the gardening coming soon, and find more ease and enjoyment in hiking, biking, or just taking a walk
This class is suitable for anyone who can get up and down from the floor with relative ease. Some yoga experience helpful but not required, this class is also great for athletes with tight hamstrings/low back, or for anyone recovering from a hip/leg/back injury (not too recent). Please wear very comfortable stretchy clothing, come well-hydrated, and bring a leak-proof water bottle.
Your happier hips will thank you!
If you have any questions about whether this course is right for you, please feel free to contact the instructor, Mia White, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Art of Inversions
with Ashley Holland
Saturday, April 14, 2018, 1:00-3:00 PM
Inversions are invigorating, energizing and fun poses to explore in your yoga practice. Yet, they can be confusing and challenging to get into in your average 60 minute yoga class. Join Santosha's Ashley Holland for two hours dedicated to kicking your feet up and going upside down. We will break-down the fundamentals of handstand, forearm stand and headstand and explore the key elements of these poses in a safe and playful setting.
