Unsupported inversions take many years to learn. Even somewhat simple inversions such as shoulder stand can be more challenging to practice than on first assumption. One needs to train the body and mind how to get into the inversion, how to find balance once there, how to last in the position, and how to get out of the position safely. We’ll be able to use the hammock as a tool to train your body and mind these many aspects of inverting, so that you’ll know how to confidently practice inversions on your own, and one day you’ll be able to do perfect inversions, unsupported!

Jimmy Reed and Jackie Stewart Reed offer sound meditations to relax and nurture the innate mind-body connection as a modality to transform consciousness and improve well-being. Through attentive listening, participants are guided through a journey beyond the discursive thinking mind and into a clear state of PRESENCE. When daily thoughts are no longer a distraction, the residue that is left by busyness and stress is cleansed. This meditation is an invitation back to BEING and CREATIVITY. Come to relax and let go.
Saturday, March 2nd at 7:00pm–9:00pm
During the first hour, we’ll spend time in heaven, or in the aerial hammock, to help release muscular tensions. We’ll explore going upside down and allow the gravity of earth help us elongate the spine while being supported by the hammock. If you are afraid of heights, the earth, or your mat on the floor, is within your arm’s reach. During the second hour, we’ll quietly transition onto the mat for yin yoga practice to help lengthen tight, contracting connective tissues. When we surrender ourselves to the support of heaven and earth, we will find not only the physical body restored and relaxed, but also our mental, emotional and spiritual well-being renewed. This workshop is suitable for all levels–from those brand new to yoga to experienced practitioners.
Sunday, March 3rd at 1:30pm-6:30pm

Sunday, March 3rd at 3:00pm-4:45pm
This workshop is designed for students that can hold a plank pose, and now want to hold a handstand. It will start with a targeted warm-up flow where the most helpful strength and awareness building poses for handstands will be emphasized. We will then move to the wall to work on various ways to enter and hold handstands, breaking down each component and answering all questions. There will be a brief cool down and time for savasana to close.
Saturday, March 9th at 6:30pm-8:30pm
Ajna Chakra is often called our third eye and is our psychic center of intuition. Ajna chakra is what we use to make sense of the world around us. While we use our eyes to see the external world, we use Ajna to interpret, understand, and give meaning to what we see. When out of balance, we get stuck in our own belief system and see the world through a biased sense of perception. When Ajna is balanced and harmonious, we are able to see and understand what the yogis call Satya, truth. We are able to connect to our true nature – peace, bliss, and love. When our “third eye” is “open,” any questions we might have are wordlessly answered, and we are able to move through life with a sense of purpose and clarity.
Saturday, March 23rd at 7:00pm-9:00pm
It’s Spring, and it’s time to cleanse and make space for new beginnings, rebirth and regeneration!
Relax in nourishing, cleansing restorative yoga poses while singing bowls, tuning forks and other overtone emitting instruments harmonize your subtle body in a powerfully transformative sound healing experience. Cultivate inner listening and insight through chanting and sound meditation. Unwind, rest, and restore your being.
Sunday, April 14th at 2:45pm-4:45pm
Want to replace your feet with your hands? Join us and explore the foundations of arm balances. These funky looking poses are less about arm strength and more about knowing how to shift your body weight (and your mind), connecting to your core power, and applying proper alignment.
Do not worry if you think you cannot do this; we will guide you safely step-by-step. We will begin our practice with a short warm-up and an overview of the basic arm balance, Bakasana (crane pose) and then move onto the more challenging, Parsva Bakasana, Astavakrasana, Dragon Fly, Bhujapidasna, Tittibhasana, Eka-Pada Koundinyasana A & B, and Vishvamitrasana. If time allows we may cover Galavasana and Eka-Pada Bakasana.
Come and be inspired to take the next step in your yoga practice!
