Handstand Skills + Drills (mini workshop)
Saturday December 1, 1-2pm
Join Adam H. to give your feet a break and spend some time on your hands. Combining training methods from Yoga, Gymnastics, and Circus Acrobatics this class will both help you improve your handstand in the studio, as well as provide ways to develop your personal handstand practice at home or on the go. Training both your muscles and your proprioceptive awareness, you'll develop both the strength and balance to hold a handstand on your own (or at least have fun working on it!).
Investment: Normal class rates/passes apply (no extra fee!). Sign up on our schedule page.

December 15 (Saturday!): Core work + Inversions
Four Saturdays: January 12, 26, February 2, + 9 from 3-4:30p with Ronit Zelivinski
(For parents and their infants 6 weeks to pre-crawling) Registration Open!
Infant Massage used to be an art passed down from generation to generation. Through touch, infants learn how to communicate, foster positive attachment to their caretakers, and understand that they are respected and their emotions are validated. Parents also learn to read baby's cues, understand their cries and alertness states and develop communication with their babies on a physical, verbal and intuitive level. During this four week series you will learn various massage techniques for baby which blend styles of Swedish massage, Indian massage, and yoga. You will have the opportunity to practice on baby dolls if your baby is asleep.
Each week we will have time for a guided discussion to connect to other families, review the massage strokes from previous weeks and address any questions that have come up. During our last class together, you will also learn adaptations for older siblings (or the growing child), rhymes and riddles to sing to baby and a little celebration potluck!
This class is entirely baby-led. The best lesson massage teaches us is how to listen to one another and to our children. Holding a baby who is upset, nursing, or changing a diaper are all encouraged and honored and there will be comfortable space for you to do all that you need to make sure baby is happy. We will review strokes and provide worksheets of all of the songs and massages so that all parent couples are caught up each week.
Investment: $150 for all sessions and includes complimentary bottle of organic cold-pressed digestible oil, packets and folders with information, research and all of the strokes covered during class. Register Here
Yoga + Queer Identity
Rescheduled! Date coming soon! with Melanie Williams
The intention of this workshop is to provide a safe space for queer self-inquiry and contemplation of the complete yoga practice, exploring the eight limbs through a queer lens. It is meant to be an LGBTQ+ only space, and all who self-identify as such are welcome. The ultimate aim is to leave participants with a solid foothold into yoga philosophy and practice that resonates and jives with their queer identity.
The workshop opens with centering and a brief, grounding meditation, incorporating use of pranayama, mudra, and/or restorative pose work as appropriate. The group will then spend time in discussion, looking at the eight limbs of yoga (particularly the yamas and niyamas, yoga's ethical precepts) through a queer lens, led by the instructor and incorporating moments for group reflection and sharing. We will follow the discussion with another brief meditation for integration and an hour-long, all-levels asana practice that is designed to support the queer physical and energetic bodies through chakral and anatomical alignment and breath-based flow. We’ll close with savasana and a final guided meditation.
Investment: $40 or $30 for Students/Gold/NYTT Sign up here.
Upcoming 2019 Workshops
Yoga + Body Image Series
Sundays Feb 3, 10, 24 and March 3 in the evenings with Melanie Williams
In this -week class series, students will take a deep dive into the relationship between yoga, the
body, and the self. Each week we’ll discuss a component of this relationship, ranging from media
representations and public perception of the “yoga body,” to tenants of yoga philosophy, such as
non-violence and impermanence, that can change the way we relate to our own bodies for the better.
We’ll follow each discussion by embodying these concepts through breath, movement, and meditation
practices that are adaptable for all bodies and levels of practice. Everyone is welcome. Those who
have never practiced yoga before because they weren’t sure their body would be welcomed are
especially encouraged to attend.
Mel skillfully weaves together yoga's philosophies and a modern asana practice to invite participants into layers of self acceptance and love.
Investment: Early birds (by Jan 21) $100, then $120 for all four sessions. Join us by signing up here.
