Special Events
Introduction to Svaroopa Yoga: Core Opening
Thursdays, 5:00-6:30pm, 10/19-11/16
Suggested donation for series: $50-70

This five-week series is a focused introduction designed for people new to Svaroopa® yoga, new to yoga, or just curious about this unique approach to yoga practice.

Svaroopa® yoga is a very "user-friendly" style, so students can begin taking classes any time they are ready. Even without any background, a new student can experience the release of spinal tension this style of yoga is famous for.

However, because we work with the body so differently, it can take some time to feel confident and comfortable in the practice - to feel "at home." In this class, we will take time to stop more often to explain the purpose behind the process. All students acquire this information over time in the regular classes, but in this 6-week series, you will set that foundation directly. This provides a context for what you experience in class and for what you practice at home.

This course may be taken independently or in conjunction with another weekly class. The suggested fee for the series is $70.


Whole Yoga
(PanchaKoshaYoga)
Thursday, Sept 21, 5-8 pm United Nations Peace Day!

To live fully in the multi-dimensionality of your existence, you must nourish and strengthen all aspects of your being. In these special classes, we will have time to experience practices that do just that.

Each class will be three hours long and will include practices for all 5 "koshas" or layers of your being. Although all the practices reach all five layers, each one focuses primarily on one or two: pranayama (primarily for the vital energy body), asana (for the physical body), meditation (for the wisdom body), journaling, contemplation and discussion (for the mental body).

Please bring a brown bag (vegetarian) dinner for yourself (for the physical body!). Hot water and herbal tea will be provided.

Free to members. Otherwise, suggested contribution: $24-35.

Body Thrive Book Club
Meets in person or on phone
Thursdays, 5:30-7:30pm

We will meet to share and discuss our experience with 10 Ayurvedic daily self-care habits as explained by Cate Stillman in her book Body Thrive. Each week, we will experiment implementing one habit in our daily lives. The intention is not to master each habit, but to become acquainted with each one and begin to incorporate aspects of them as best suits our current circumstances and abilities.
Those who register for the book club will receive an email each week with a short video of Cate talking about the habit or about the process of incorporating new habits in general.

Those who cannot be "in the room" can participate via phone conference. Details will be provided once you sign up. There is no cost for the club, but you will need to buy the book and to register with Yoga Healer (Cate Stillman's company) and with Margery at 802-775-1795 or by email.
