Yoga for A Great Attitude: Inversions and Heart Opening
Limited Capacity seats available

Need an attitude adjustment? It goes without saying that yoga itself, no matter what kind you do, helps with your attitude - but there are definitely some poses that are inherently more mood enhancing than others. Give yourself a healthy dose of heart opening, shoulder yumminess, inversions, side bends, counter poses and a relaxing restorative savasana and leave with tools to shift your state when you need it most. Mostly asana.

This class will be assisted by experienced yoga teachers who have trained intimately with Amy, so expect ample hands on adjustments (if you’d like them)!

Body Maps: The Road to Healthy Aging, Pain Modulation, and Emotional Balance
Limited Capacity seats available

Our brain contains its own body map--a mental representation of our body and its functions. Far from being a neural entity, our body map is vital to the way in which we age, as well as to our pain modulation and emotional regulation. First, we'll explore the science behind body maps as it touches on these key areas of wellness. We'll then experience a body map-enriching, vinyasa-inspired, movement-infused yoga practice; a connective-tissue hydrating minipractice; and a brief, therapeutic, and restorative Savasana. Asana with discussion.

Fluid and Free: The Sacrum and Hips
Limited Capacity seats available

This class is an immersion to bring fluidity in the hip joints. Given that the ligaments that hold the hip into place are the strongest in the body, bringing ease of motion into this primary load bearing joint is challenging. We will review the strong musculature and ligaments that hold the hip into place and address sciatic pain. We will focus on external hip rotation, but also take the hip into internal rotation, flexion and extension.

Anahata Flow: The Mystery of the Heart Chakra
Limited Capacity seats available

This class addresses the source of where we love- through our bodies and our expressions of service in the world. Through a gentle vinyasa flow sequence focusing on backbends, forward folds and hip openers, we will address the issues of the 4th chakra and how they play into our realm of loving. Seane will create an experience that will allow you to reflect inwardly on any resistance that may be holding you back from living with an open heart, allowing you to instead be in the mystery of life- in all of its expressions, so we can stand powerfully in this journey, with gratitude, reconciliation, understanding and peace of mind. Join Seane and participate in the opportunity to shift your resistance into surrender, your judgment into compassion, and most certainly your fear into faith. Practice and discussion. All levels.
