ROOTS OF AWAKENING: MULADHARA CHAKRA
with Nicole Nichols                                              Saturday, December 16      2:00-4:30pm

roots of awakening photoMuladhara chakra, or root place, is often disregarded as the “lowest” chakra, but in fact, it is the most important one. It is the very foundation of the energy body, and foundation is the most important part of any structure. In Hatha Yoga, we focus on this because with a steady foundation, it is easy to create the rest. The Hatha Yoga practice is about balance, and when we are in a balanced state it is easy to support our life and uplift the lives of others. Without a steady foundation, daily life can be a quickly shifting landscape that is easily toppled, shaken, and prone to anxiety, depression, ups and downs. Join Nicole Nichols and explore this chakra through a physical practice of grounding and balancing poses, to build strong roots for the rest of our practice and our daily lives. We’ll also examine the foundational relationships that are associated with this chakra–those with our parents, money, our career, boss, and even our home. From stability comes freedom, and with freedom, anything is possible! $40 Register


HOT, HIP & HOLY(DAYS)
with Hollie Sue Mann                Sunday, December 17    1:30-3:30pm

268[1]Join Hollie Sue Mann for a class that brings together the best of ancient yoga philosophy and modern practice in an exploration of how we experience this hectic time of the year with real joy and deep peace. In the Yoga Sutras, Patanjali gives three basic steps to a healthier way of being. This method is called Kriya Yoga. It involves: 1) tapas (heat, or desire), 2) svadhyaya (self-knowledge, or reflection), 3) ishvara pranidhanani (devotion, or offering). To put it another way, your practice should have some spark to it, maintain a connection to the life you are living right now, and approached in a sacred manner. This workshop will bring these teachings together in way that makes the holidays AND your yoga: Hot, Hip, and Holy! All levels vinyasa practice. $35 Register
