Holiday Candlelit Yin Yoga
with Krista Mason
Sunday, December 16, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Nourish your body and mind in this quiet, relaxing practice. You will leave relaxed and rejuvenated with a deeper feeling of balance and a deeper sense of calm.
Yin Yoga helps bring balance to our overly busy lifestyles. It is a contemplative practice of long, passive holds (generally 3-5 minutes) in specific floor postures to nourish the joints and ligaments of our body while emphasizing and deepening into the breath throughout the practice. These asanas gently strengthen and rehabilitate the connective tissues that form our joints, allowing us to maintain and restore joint flexibility. This practice helps to bring balance to both our lives and our more active yoga practices. Yin Yoga also allows us to become more present, allowing us to draw “within” ourselves and quiet our mind and body. As we find that quiet acceptance in our postures, we can also find this acceptance spilling out into our life.
We will practice by the glow of candlelight, and finish practice by sharing some yummy wine and chocolate! We will leave relaxed, rejuvenated, and filled with ease.
Cost is $25.

Goal Setting & Vision Board Workshop
with Jennifer Brennan
Saturday, January 12, 2:30-5:30 pm
A vision board is a powerful tool often used as a tangible compass to kick-start goal setting in a mindful, intentional way. So much more than a pretty collage of images and inspiring words, a vision board brings your heartfelt desires to the surface and says, “Universe, THIS is what I most want, need, and deserve!” Jack Canfield says, “Through the Law of Attraction, visualization also magnetizes and attracts to you the people, resources, and opportunities you need to achieve your goal.” Creating a vision board—and looking at it daily—are powerful first steps to having the life you truly want. Join us for an afternoon of quiet centering and joyful creating to both embrace the start of a new year and set a course for the months ahead. You’ll leave with a clearer mental picture of what you want to attract, the foundation to attain goals (big or small!), and your personal vision board. For repeat attendees to this workshop, this year features a NEW meditation and NEW journaling prompts! All materials will be provided. However, you are welcome to bring any old magazines, favorite images, and original photos to add to your vision board.
Cost is $30.
