As spring approaches, it is important to acknowledge life balance. It is the time of year when everything “revs up” and we begin to fill our calendars with lots of “to do’s”. This is the perfect workshop to connect with yourself through breath and relaxation which in turn will align the proper balance and harmony needed to step forward and grow. Nate, Massage Therapist and Rae Ann, Yoga Instructor will provide you with the tools to tap into what balance is to you thru a series of Restorative Yoga poses. These restful poses along with essential oils and touch will assist in tuning into your body and mind.
In a tranquil candlelit environment, we will support your poses with bolsters, blankets, sandbags, blocks and straps. Guided meditation/readings focusing on life balance will provide you with guidance to help you attain your own life balance. Soothing music will accompany each pose while oils and massage are applied. Join us as spring approaches and allow us to provide you with the proper channels to bring balance to your life and prepare you for what lies ahead.

CORE strength with ali white
Saturday March 30th
Lay the foundation for a strong yoga practice by learning to ignite your core in every pose! As our core supports us physically in our practice, building abdominal strength gives us the potential to improve nearly every asana, allowing us to flow with ease. This workshop will emphasize core awareness in traditional vinyasa flow and focus on activating the midline as we move. Learn to increase balance, activate your deepest abdominal muscles, and build the foundation for inversions and arm balances through intensive core work.... and have fun!
At the core of every strong yoga practice is a strong CORE.
All levels are welcome and encouraged.
