Solstice  & Equinox Yoga Celebrations (IN STUDIO or LIVE STREAM)

For over 15 years, I have had the pleasure of leading Solstice and Equinox celebrations. It has evolved into a cherished tradition, something I eagerly look forward to each year. Join me at Sellwood Yoga where we will gather and celebrate with a slow, mindful vinyasa flow sequence, transitioning into a deeply nourishing yin and restorative practice. Alternatively, you may choose to practice anywhere and live stream the class.

For everyone registered, I will send an email in advance of the class. This email will provide thoughtful suggestions to enrich your practice and align it with the energy of the season, whether you’re practicing at home or with me in the studio. You will also receive a link to an assortment of seasonal readings/poems, as well as a Spotify playlist.

Don’t miss these opportunities to honor the equinoxes and solstices. Synchronize with the rhythms of the year and create meaningful connections with friends, family, and community.

Enhance Your Practice: 4 Week Series – IN STUDIO

 
Details make all the difference! In this series, you will learn how to enhance your yoga poses and sequences of poses. The key to this refinement is learning how to better adapt and attune the poses to fit your body and where you are with your yoga practice. You will also practice common transitions between poses and learn how to modify to meet your comfort level and range of motion.
 
Group size is limited, giving you more time to ask questions and explore the answers as well as opportunities to learn from each other and get more one on one attention.
