These workshops invite mindfulness and reconnection to our own inner nature as we engage in sensory walks (forest-bathing), explore micro-environments, create mandalas and appreciate poetry inspired by natural elements. Two retreats are offered each season: winter, spring, summer and fall. Following gentle movement and guidance for your sensory walk, we will proceed down to the river where we will end with a seasonal reflective meditation in constructive rest. Also available for private bookings to celebrate and honor family and friends.
See here or below for an introduction to the origins of the shinrin-yoku (forest bathing) practice in Japan.
Signup by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and paying using button below.
All classes are Slowflow and involve a creative fusion of qigong warmups, dynamic yin-yang, vinyasa and holding poses, breathwork and mindfulness. We will build strength and cardiovascular capacity by linking postures with flowing vinyasas to develop core stability, hip and shoulder opening and spinal flexibility with variations offered for all levels. As we grow our body-awareness of our subtle anatomy and harness our “bandhas”, the practice becomes lighter and brighter.
The intention of our practice is to:
- strengthen and stretch your muscles
- re-sculpt your connective tissue
- release your anxiety and tension
- focus your mind and sharpen your sensory awareness
- cultivate compassion for self and other
- restore your whole system toward greater equilibrium
what is my level?
Read a wonderful blog post here from Maya Lev, Director of Yoga Center Santa Cruz, on how to self-determine one’s “level” of yoga as a student through assessing one’s tapas (drive), discernment (understanding) and physical preparation.
Private classes tailored for your group may include a blend of styles: restorative, yin, vinyasa flow, sutra themes, therapeutic or yoga-story for kids.
