Workshops

(VIA ZOOM)

We offer workshops that allow us to dive deeper into a practice or topic. These run anywhere from an hour to four or five, giving the student the opportunity to practice, take notes and ask questions. Some past workshops have included: Singing Bowl healing, Hip anatomy and movement, QiGong, Non-violent Communication, Using Yoga for Trauma Recovery, Partner Yoga and more.

Mettā-Verse 4-week Virtual Workshop

Mettā is a practice of inviting kindness in all of our affairs; embodying kindness in our actions, words and intentions.

Kindness is a muscle that requires training and development.

Kindness is forgiving and forgiveness demands practice.

In this workshop, we will exercise our Mettā muscles so we know what kindness feels like in our flesh and bones.

Next session: May 4-25

Mettā-Verse 4-week

Virtual Workshop, Zoom

Wednesdays, 7:00-8:30 p.m. EST; May 4, 11, 18, 25

We will practice it in our breath so that it is always present in our words.

We will practice kindness in our thoughts so that perhaps we will arrest an act of hostility before it is born in our minds.

We are worthy of Mettā for ourselves. The world needs us to cultivate it, to receive it and  share it – with friends and foes. Our spirit craves it for inner peace.

Hip Freedom Workshop, July 12

Hip Freedom – Expand your awareness of the ranges and types of movements in your hips, beyond “I need a hip opener.: Our hips are mysterious and deep. They are sensuous and fickle. They open, close, twist. They are entwined and essential. 

This workshop will break down hip anatomy and vitality. We explore postures, counter postures and breath that affect hip health. And we will dive into the emotional and spiritual engines within our hips, perhaps gaining insights into why they often leave us in tears. Space is limited so the instructor can give feedback and individual attention to the attendees. Sunday, July 12, 1-3 p.m. $25 preregistration; $35 day-of. Limit 10.
