From Skin to Core: Friday, February 16, 2018: 1:00 – 4:00 pm
The skin is our boundary between ourselves and the world and is considered to be the largest organ in the body. So often the skin is constricted, dehydrated or numb due to stress and fatigue. In this class we stretch, expand and tone the skin in yoga postures in order to support the movement of lymph. Given that seventy percent of the lymph is sub-dermal, positions that stretch your “skin suit” will create radiant immunity.

Flow Through the Core Channel: Sunday, February 18, 2018: 1:00 – 4:00 pm
The aim of yoga practice is to build a strong yet pliable interior core. The challenge in yoga and other mind-body disciplines is to bring lightness and lift to the core without tightening or causing unnecessary constriction. In this class build core stability by strengthening the musculature along your spine. Practice balancing poses which help build core stability in the marrow of your bones. This immersion helps cultivate the deepest vitality in the body while cultivating feelings of levity and grace.
