Come explore the connection between mythology and the asana. Myths are stories that help us to make sense of our world and connect our personal experience with the sacred. This workshop will include in-depth overview of the philosophy, mythology and meaning behind some of yoga’s most popular poses and how we can use this newfound knowledge not only in practice but in our everyday lives. This workshop is eligible for CEHs through Yoga Alliance.
Civilization’s way of tracking time was born out of the lunar rhythms of a woman’s monthly cycle, or moon cycle. The origins of the word “moon” come from the word “month” and “menses” both in Old English and Greek. Women would experience their period together on the New Moon and would ovulate at the Full Moon. The Lunar Calendar is what is innately inside each of us and, as women, many of us are beginning to remember this cycle, and to align our lives with it.
On the New Moon we set our intentions, consciously and deliberately focusing on the process over two weeks to the Full Moon, when the manifestations are clearly illuminated. One of the most valuable tools in this journey is journaling where we can explore our deepest selves. You will be guided through a writing process delivered via email to your inbox daily so you can participate in your own time during the lunar cycle from New Moon to Full Moon. Each day will bring forward various themes based on current astrological influences and the phase of the moon.
Registration for this event closes at 11:59pm Sunday, October 27th.

Join me for an uplifting monthly discussion group to explore how the principles of yoga can be applied in our everyday life through Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. This is a FREE, drop-in group that meets for one hour on the first Saturday of the month from 5:30-6:30pm. We welcome new students as it is a starting point for more study, building good community with people committed to seeing each other's intrinsic greatness, and dissolving the sense of separateness.
I will be teaching the event that connects art from the Hunter Museum with yoga in November! Your $5 donation supports Hunter Museum educational programs. All levels of yoga experience are welcome. Please arrive on time, as the gallery portion is integral to the experience, and bring your own yoga mat.
Mala is the Sanskrit word for garland and contains 108 prayer beads knotted together along with counter beads and a guru bead. These sacred beads are used in the spiritual practice of Japa Meditation to count the number of times a mantra, which is a word or series of words invoking spiritual qualities, is recited in meditation. In this workshop we will dive into a deeper understanding of mantra and meditation and their benefits as well as learn how to make a mala and the significance behind them. Basic yoga philosophy will be covered during this fun, artistic and informative experience. Hours of this workshop are eligible for Yoga Alliance CEHs.
