Back 2 Basics is a 6 week session geared primarily to those who are new to yoga, but would also be good for experienced yogis who want to take a step back and “re-meet” poses with which they are familiar. Each week a new set of asanas will be introduced, focusing on a particular category or physical element. As the weeks progress, poses that have been introduced will be reviewed and blended in with the new.  During the final class we will play with building a vinyasa – a flowing together of poses.

Week 2: Standing Poses
Week 3: Seated Poses
Week 4: Balance and Twisting Poses (Standing and Seated)

Create You Own Mala – A String and a Prayer with
Summer Kiser, RYT 200
Sun
Apr 27
1-3p
Malas embody everything that life is all about – beauty, meaning and inspiration. Beyond being a beautiful tasseled necklace composed of 108 beads, a mala is a powerful tool for prayer and meditation. Each bead represents an opportunity to focus on an inspiring and powerful mantra.  Reciting a Mantra helps us to protect our minds from negativity and the mala used to count mantra is regarded as very precious; especially when empowered with specific gemstones.
In this workshop, we will learn how to make a mala that is completely unique, personal, and full of meaning using a delightful trio of gemstones.  There will be an option to use a charm or make your own silk tassel. Materials are provided to make your own personal mala to take home or to give as a gift.
