This postnatal class series, designed for people with babies 6-weeks to pre-crawling, will focus on exploring and learning about how the core, pelvic floor and joints can all be affected by pregnancy and how we can work to heal, strengthen and stabilize.  Restorative poses throughout each class will help soothe baby-addled nerves. And with babies welcome in class (both online or in person), you can feel free to stop your practice anytime you need to care for baby. And you'll receive a recording of each class, so if you had to leave practice to care for baby, you can pick up where you left off on the recording later! Each class gives you a chance to connect with other new parents in the community and talk about any issues you are having with your post baby body.

12 Hour Foundations of Yin Yoga: Theory and Science of Joint and Fascia Tending

Dates: Saturday, January 14, 2023 - Sunday, January 15, 2023
Location: Lighthouse Yoga Center
In-Person

$280 general/$250 members

1-7pm each day, In-person

Yin Yoga utilizes muscularly relaxed poses, practiced on the floor, that are held for 3-5 minutes in order to safely and systematically stimulate chemical regenerative responses in tissues, particularly of fascia, ligaments, and within joint capsules. Through modest traction and compression, one trains the structural tissues to reduce the process of contracture that shortens tissues and can cause degeneration, adhesions, pain, and decreased range of motion. Yin Yoga's methodical and subtle approach provides lubrication, mobility, and a sense of lightness to the body's structure, energetics, and thus to the nervous system, the mind and emotions.

This 12 hour training/personal enrichment program is a valuable introductory exploration for those who wish to deepen their understanding of the Yin Yoga practice for their own self-care, for teachers wanting to incorporate the basics of Yin Yoga wisely and safely into their class offerings, and for wellness practitioners looking to integrate Yin Yoga practices into their sessions.

Dates: Saturday, January 21, 2023
Location: Online
Online  

$54 non-members/$48 members

4:30-7:30pm, Online

The Upanishads are sometimes described as a metaphorical photo album of mystical experience. The common theme of these poetic writings is that the purpose of our human life is to discover the infinite and unchanging reality that is at the core of all things. The Bhagavad Gita is a beloved and sacred ancient Hindu text that translates the teachings of The Upanishads into a guidebook for spiritual self-discovery. You'll see many definitions of yoga offered in this text and we'll consider some of The Bhagavad Gita 's essential questions.

Dates: Saturday, February 11, 2023
Location: Online
Online  

Pricing: $36 non-members/$32 members

1-3pm, Online

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, have arguably and somewhat inexplicably become the most influential text to modern yoga. This workshop will explore how and why this has happened, the valuable insights The Yoga Sutras can offer us, and where The Yoga Sutras divert from some of the foundational philosophies of yoga outlined in the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita. Part history lesson, part philosophical inquiry, this is both introduction to the Yoga Sutras and in-depth consideration of a few of the most oft-quoted verses and concepts. The ethical guidelines of yoga, the end goal of yoga practice, distractions and the obstacles, and what we can expect when we attain enlightenment… it’s all here and we’ll spend time discovering and unpacking all of it.

The Practices of Hatha Yoga: A Dive into the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the Shiva Samhita, and the Gheranda Samhita

Location: Online
Online  

$54 general/$48 members

1-4pm, Online

While some of today’s yoga practitioners have read The Hatha Yoga Pradipika , not many even know about the Shiva Samhita or the Gherand Samhita . Considered the most detailed original descriptions of postures, breath practices, symbolic hand gestures and energy locks, these writings are also full of contradictions and seemingly bizarre instructions. Even still, they offer us important insights into the traditional practices and purposes of Hatha Yoga. With Tara Lemerise.

Your Body in Yoga: A Functional Anatomy Immersion Workshop

Dates: Saturday, March 11, 2023 - Sunday, March 12, 2023
Location: Lighthouse Yoga Center
In-Person

EARLY BIRD PRICING!  $260 for all - ends February 10th!

$280 general/$260 members  In-Person, 1-7:30pm each day

With Machelle Lee, MA, E-RYT 500, CMT, YACEP

Harshly judging one's range of motion is one of the greatest sources of unnecessary suffering in many people’s yoga practice. The asanas (poses) were designed to move the regenerative and healing life force. To do that effectively in yoga, we must understand our own (or our students') unique structures and explore when we can safely move deeply into a posture or when to acknowledge limitations with respect.

This functional anatomy workshop explores the 10 muscle groups and the 14 major joint segments of the body that account for most of our yoga postures. For each joint intersection, we will perform analysis and range of motion tests on ourselves, ask specific questions about the key sensations, compare with each other, and demonstrate how each person will express particular poses based on their unique anatomic make up.

The Energy Body

Dates: Friday, April 14, 2023
Location: Online
Online  

$54 non-members/$48 members
6-9pm, Online

According to the wisdom traditions of yoga, there are multiple layers or sheaths of our being called kosha . These layers, first described in the Taittiriya Upanishad, are separate but interconnected, and include the physical, energetic, mental/emotional, astral/spiritual, and essential bliss bodies. In this session, we will explore the energy and astral/spiritual layers to learn about the energy pathways (nadi) and centers (chakra) and experiment with practices to recognize and adjust imbalances that contribute to our suffering.
