Ashtanga

Ashtanga is an athletic flow combining strength, flexibility and endurance, which can be practiced by yogis of all levels, and is particularly accommodating to newer practitioners. Literally translated, “Ashtanga Yoga” means “eight-limbed yoga”, which is a powerful, healing practice. It is a specific sequence of postures (asanas) linking breath (pranayama) and movement (vinyasa).  Students are introduced to Ashtanga yoga’s Sun Salutations and basic sequences for standing, sitting, supine and prone asanas, Practice always culminates with savasana, and deep relaxation meditation.

Yoga for 12 Step Recovery

Yoga of 12 Step Recovery (Y12SR) combines the practical tools of the 12-step program with the ancient wisdom of yoga. Combining the two creates a model that truly addresses addiction as the physical, mental, and spiritual disease that it is. Y12SR works through a holistic approach that connects the dots between neuroscience, trauma healing, cognitive and somatic-based methods. Its mission is to improve the lives of individuals and families affected by substance and behavioral addictions, and to enhance physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

Y12SR is a 12-step based discussion and yoga practice that is open to anyone and everyone dealing with their own addictive behavior or affected by the addictive behavior of others. This is an open and inclusive group. EVERYONE IS WELCOME. You do not need to be a member of a 12-step program to participate.

Please wear comfortable clothing. Classes may incorporate pranayama (breathwork), guided meditation, a reading/quote, and other practices. Expect approximately 35 minutes of sharing and 35 minutes of asana (yoga poses).

Y12SR is donation based. Please give what you can. One-third of donations go to the studio for hosting, one-third to the space holder, and one-third to an addiction-based charity.

Y12SR meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month.

Grasp at the Root: Uprooting White Supremacy from Healing Spaces (2/5-2/7)

Relationship is the foundation of our practice. To build mutually beneficial healing spaces, trust must be cultivated in our communities. Created and led by Black queer facilitators, this 3-day training is designed to cultivate empathy as the ground from which we can collectively rise towards equity. Ending cycles of harm on a personal, collective, and systemic level requires us all to release the ties that we have to white supremacy, capitalism and hetero-patriarchy.

Through the science of yoga, evidence-based somatic practice, sociopolitical education, energetic healing and more, we commit to unlearning the perceptions that lie at the root of our most harmful actions. In this work we ask: How do you uphold white-supremacy in your daily life? How do you respond to situations of injustice? Who do you prioritize? What steps can you take to make spaces of healing more accessible?

These questions are deeply personal, as a way to uncover internalized political and social systems that keep us alienated from one another. Together we aim to upend these systems to create a better world for us all. Our work centers the experiences of Black and Indigenous people, people of color, disabled, queer and trans people.

This training is intended for:

Yoga instructors, practitioners, & studio owners
Therapists, social workers, & trauma healing practitioners
Movement teachers (dance, fitness, self-defense)
Healthcare practitioners & clinicians
Intentional communities seeking shared language
Activists
