Cleaning The Slate with Jason Bowman
Limited Capacity seats available

Asana practice teaches us very obviously how to be in the body. As it does, it tricks us into taking residence in the mind with a corresponding grace. Everything we learn in the body about strength, flexibility and balance seeps its way into the internal world. Where the two meet is a clean slate—the place where we create a life of connection and freedom.

Awake & Alive: A Flow for Vibrancy with Anne Marie Kramer

Though active movement — flowing, twisting and jumping — we'll get out of our heads and into our bodies. So many of us share the feeling of being run down, tired or in a rut. We'll use the yoga to turn all this around and create more energy in our lives, so we feel vibrant, awake and alive. And of course, part of feeling vibrant is finding balance. We'll combine vinyasa with some time for yin and meditation to create an experience that leaves you feeling grounded yet ready to take on your day!
