Each week will build upon the last and practitioners will learn the characteristics of each chakra and its location in the body, as well as mudras (hand gestures), physical poses, breath techniques and mantras that correspond to each energy center. The practice will leave you feeling refreshed, centered and balanced. All levels welcome.

*It will definitely be fun and exploratory to make all 7 classes, and it isn't necessary meaning you can come for 1, a few, or all of the classes. For example, if you make it to the 2nd, 4th, and 7th class, you'll be just fine and won't be lost if you haven't made it to all previous classes in the series.

**No need to pre-register. If you do sign-up in advance, simply register for Meghan's regularly scheduled Ease-Up class listed on our schedule.

Friday, October 18, 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Taught by Uplifter Meghan Foley

We all live very full lives. Our minds are constantly racing, rarely giving our sympathetic (fight-or-flight) nervous system a break. To maintain our health long-term, it's absolutely essential to rest and restore. This powerful 90-minute class will calm your body and mind through a unique combination of Restorative Yoga and Aromatherapy.

Come ready to be supported. Physically by blankets, bolsters, straps & blocks. Mentally & spiritually by our UpLifter Meghan, who will help you find deep muscle relief and a relaxing mental state - somewhere between wakefulness and sleep. Exactly the kind of self-care a power yogi needs after a long week: lower your stress level, release long-held tension, and increase your energy levels for joyful weekend ahead.

chakras

Sunday, October 27, 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Taught by Uplifter Meghan Foley

This workshop is designed for the yogi who wants to deepen his/her understanding of the subtle body by taking a journey through the chakras, the 7 major energy centers within the body that align with the spine and the endocrine system. Each chakra is associated with a color, mudra, element, stage of life, characteristic, part of the body, emotion, etc.

Sometimes referred to as the "psychology of yoga," yogis will gain a greater understanding of self by deepening their awareness of this subtle body energy. For optimal health and balance, we want the chakras to be flowing freely. We will close the lecture with a short chakra-based physical practice, so yogis will have the opportunity to feel these subtle energy centers within their own bodies.

All levels welcome.

into to ayurveda

Sunday, November 17, 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Ayurveda translates from Sanskrit as the "science of life."

The workshop is intended for students of all levels and will also include a short physical practice exploring each dosha and its properties.
