introduction to stråla yoga.

join me for an exploratory afternoon of grace, coordination + tai chi exercises that help you to discover clarity of movement independent of form. by focusing on softness, breath + principles of natural movement, you will begin to help the body support itself + use more efficiently what you already have. by removing the idea of an endpoint, + moving beyond pose-based yoga, you learn to drop the idea of what you think you should like + pay closer attention to how particular shapes feel in your body. i will end the day by leading a stråla yoga RELAX class.


stråla RELAX is a moving flow that releases tension from the body + mind while resting attention calmly on your breath. you drop the stress + feel all-over revitalized!

hard things made easy: exploring inversions + arm balances with ease.

how we do one thing is how we do everything. when we approach difficult things with ease, magic happens. we tune in + pay close attention to how we feel +, as a result, accomplish more with less effort. by drawing upon the natural movement principles of stråla yoga, i will provide a supportive + safe space to explore the 'harder' +, oftentimes more intimidating, yoga poses like handstand + crow. you will move everything you've got in every direction you can + come to understand that there is no endgame or nailing of a pose, only your process. you will move how it feels good to move for you in your body in any given moment. i will end the day by leading a stråla yoga ENERGIZE class.

stråla ENERGIZE is a moving flow that invigorates your body + mind while resting attention calmly on your breath. you'll feel awake, energized + super-creative!

peace, love + vision boarding: intention setting + dream manifesting for a magical 2018..

visualization is one of the most powerful mind exercises you can do. creating a sacred + special place to display your dreams, hopes, wishes + goals for the future helps to make them a very real part of your daily life.

the only rule when it comes to vision boarding is that there are no rules. there is no right or wrong. a vision board is a truly personal + unique representation of what it means to create + live your happiest, healthiest life. oftentimes, you'll be surprised with the phrases + images that resonate with you most. 

join us for an afternoon of intention setting, goal making + meditation in a supportive + judgement-free environment. it's not often we get to do arts + crafts as adults of a certain age + this is the perfect time to tap into that energy + reflect on the magic we'd like to create in 2018.

all materials are included but feel free to bring along old magazines or any other materials such as photographs or postcards that you would like to include on your vision board.

light refreshments will be served.
