SPECIAL EVENTS 

  
 Yoga Nidra: The Art of Relaxation with Cathy Franzese
Friday, March 15, 7:00-8:00 pm, $20, min 4/max 12

Experience the practice of ultimate surrender. Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep is a systematic method of complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation that targets our physiological, neurological, and subconscious needs. It is a body-centered form of Pratyahara, or withdrawal from the senses, intended to create full-body relaxation, receptivity and an effortless openness to change. This workshop begins with a light asana practice to open, ease and help to bring stillness into the body, as well as a brief explanation of Sankalpa - our heartfelt desire - and its role in the Yoga Nidra practice. The practice itself is a series of guided visualization and relaxation techniques which will move you beyond the conditioned mind into expanded states of consciousness and self-awareness.

 Spring Renewal for Women with Cathy Franzese
Wednesday, March 20, 5:30-7:30 pm, $25, min 4/max 12
Let's give ourselves some time to slow down and replenish. This will be a nurturing experience of Restorative yoga for just us women! A wonderful opportunity to gather together, surrender into stillness and support, and greet the first day of spring. We will briefly discuss the sacred, interconnected cycles of the moon, our bodies and the seasons to help explore a deeper knowing our own intrinsic patterns and rhythm. We will practice a sequence of a few restorative poses that provide space for letting go so that the systems of our bodies may be nourished. It also serves as a great sequence for easing some of the discomfort that may be present during the luteal and menstrual cycles. A truly valuable practice for all of us, especially if life has felt busy and/or draining. Looking forward to sharing and holding space! No previous experience necessary. All women are welcome! Please dress warm and comfortable, and bring a journal if you'd like! Sign up online or at the studio to hold your place. Sign Up Below.

 The Psoas/Diaphragm Connection with JoAnn Staugaard-Jones
Saturday, March 23, 10:00-noon, $30/$25 by 3/19, min 6
Jo Ann Staugaard-Jones, international educator and author of The Vital Psoas Muscle, will present a workshop on the physical, emotional, and spiritual connection between the Psoas Major and Diaphragm. These two deep, central core muscles can together affect the 'gut brain’, vagus nerve, lumbar plexus, breathing, walking, skiing, and of course yoga Asanas. Complex yet understandable, the biomechanics and emotional qualities of both muscles will be addressed with floor practice, standing asanas, and relaxation techniques. All levels are invited to participate, students as well as instructors.
