Special Classes & Workshops

Lucia Della Luna will be joining us with another 4 part spiritual workshop beginning in January!   Introduction to Shamanic Journey will teach participants the basics of journeying and spiritual realms.  Each class will also include a journey led by drum and follow up discussion.  Some experience with meditation, especially guided meditation, is highly suggested but not required.  Comfortable dress, a yoga mat and anything else that may make you comfortable is suggested as well as a journal or notebook to record your experiences.  This series is best experienced as a full 4 part workshop.  It is spaced out appropriately so that you can practice, or meditate on your experiences between classes. For any questions or concerns feel free to visit www.LuciaDellaLuna.com or email Lucia directly [email protected]

Perfect Valentines or Galentines night out!

Have you ever wanted to try something new with your yoga practice or fitness routine? Have you ever wished your husband, wife or best friend would try yoga because you love it so much? We have an idea! Join us for Partner Yoga and share your yoga practice with your loved-one or bestie.

Partner yoga is a wonderful way to share time, create an experience, and have fun with someone you trust. Creating postures with the assistance and support of another person can bring depth to a yoga practice in ways you can not attain alone. Trust, appreciation, compassion and respect grow when you move through postures in coordination with another being. Intentional human support offers so much more than any strap, block or bolster.

After introductions and a short talk on the “rules and regulations” of working with a partner safely, Jenna Mooney and her partner Chuck will guide you through a simple and fun 75-minute beginner partner yoga practice intended to bring gentle motion to your body, breath to your spirit, growth to your relationship and joy to your afternoon.

Please plan to bring a mat and water for each person. A pen and course outline will be provided for notes. Partner yoga does require touch, so be sure you are comfortable with the person you choose to share your mat space. All of the postures chosen for this workshop respect interpersonal boundaries and can be modified to attain all comfort levels, however touch is part of the practice. The level of connection you choose to attain with your chosen partner is completely up to you.

Partner yoga is not just for couples, partner yoga is for everyone, join us!!!

Beginning in June, yoga is back outdoors at Academy Hill! Gentle Yoga with Britt will be held Monday evenings at 6:30pm and Slow Flow Yoga will be held Friday mornings at 7:30am.

Pre-registration is required and class is included in your ZEN membership or $18 drop-in fee.

Yoga postures created with integrity and proper alignment are the best way to get more from your yoga practice. There are many components to a yoga pose and it can seem overwhelming to try to line everything up AND move deeper into your practice. Good news!!! There is a small set of “rules of thumb” that connect postures!! Once you become familiar with what they are, practicing with good alignment becomes second nature….and when it does, you will get more out of your practice physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. This 4-week series will help these common foundations become second nature. The body learns through repetition. The four class series will thread simple sequences together using a small set of simple rules. You will hear and practice the simple common concepts several times in each of the four classes. At the end of the series, you will be familiar with the best alignment for you.
 
4 one-hour yoga classes.
 
The class size is limited to 10 people to allow a more personal and interactive experience.
 
$80 for the 4-week series.
Stay tuned for the next one!
