108 Sun Salutations for Winter Solstice with Nicole

108 Sun Salutations for Winter Solstice with Nicole

Gather with us on the darkest night of the year with the light in our hearts to set our intentions for what is to come. In eastern philosophy the number 108 is considered a number that represents a complete cycle and is the ultimate end of an event or phenomenon. So, for this reason it is common to do 108 rounds of something meaningful to you on auspicious occasions.

As a community, we will practice 108 Sun Salutations to honor this powerful ritual and tradition. We practice this repetition with focus and intention. Just as any repetitive task in life can lead us to boredom and restlessness, we can learn how to come back to our intention and physically work mindfully and smarter, rather than harder, which are all great lessons for ourselves as we move into a new year. We will finish with a brief meditation letting the lessons we learn on our mat this day resonate within us.

You don't have to practice all 108 Sun Salutations, your presence is enough. All- Levels welcome. Class passes may be used or drop-in rates apply.

The Foundation of Yoga: A Sutra Intensive


$40

Join Brooke’s Teacher, Hilaire Lockwood for this special opportunity to dig deep into the philosophy of Yoga.

Sometimes knowing "why" we do something helps put meaning or intention behind our action. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali do just that. This one-day intensive for students and instructors alike will be solely focused on the foundation of the yoga practice, its roots and its meaning - all that lies within the 3,000-year-old Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Over the two-hour period we will cover as much of the book as possible, relating the foundation of yoga to our life off the mat. When we can more deeply understand the purpose behind the practice, our time on our mat has more meaning. All are welcome - no yoga or sutra experience required.

Donation Class for Emma

Donation Class for Emma

In May 2018 Emma Grace Straub, age 9, was diagnosed with Autoimmune Encephalitis, a condition in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy brain cells, leading to inflammation.  Emma now suffers from numerous cognitive deficits and debilitating psychiatric symptoms.  The only treatment is a regular schedule of IV infusions of blood plasma ("IVIG") over the next 15 months. Not only has IVIG been proven to work for Emma, but her team of expert physicians and hospital agree that she desperately needs this treatment. 

Unfortunately, this treatment is very costly so together, let’s help Emma and her family by donating what we can. Kelly is graciously offering a donation-based class with all proceeds going to Emma. Our suggested donation is $10-$15 per person. Cash only. Thank you for your help!
