Explore Arm Balances

Limited to 9 Students (IN STUDIO only)

Price: Chose what you pay $30-$40

Be it from your hands, head, or forearms we will explore preparatory movements and other poses that will help you understand, try out and build confidence around arm balancing poses.

Detailed instruction and skillful techniques will be suggested in order to add variety, make modifications, and entertain possibilities. We will also work with dispelling fear and building courage.

Arm balances can help to increase strength, stability and agility. They are great poses to harness the power of concentration and focus while maintaining a playful and inspired attitude.

Summer R&R: Restore and Renew

Limited to 9 Students (IN STUDIO only)

Price: Chose what you pay $25-$35

Take a break mid-week to unwind, relax, restore and replenish.

We will begin with a combination of easy stretching and myofascial release techniques to bring your body back to a more ideal state by enhancing body awareness, rehydrating connective tissue, and decreasing stuck stress that accumulates from daily living.

From there, explore poses from both Yin and Restorative Yoga styles to slow down, replenish, further unwind, and deeply relax. Yin involves being in poses for longer periods of time in order to let go of tension stored in the body and to calm the nervous system. Infused in the longer, more passive time is a meditative awareness of breath, mindfulness and presence.

From Restorative Yoga, practice passive yoga asanas fully supported by props, to help facilitate a deeper, more restful and supported state.

This evening special class is suitable for most practitioners regardless of age, experience or familiarity.  You will be using soft foam rollers, yoga bolsters, yoga blocks and blankets to support and assist your practice.

Winter Solstice Yoga Celebration (IN STUDIO or LIVE STREAM)

Price: Chose what you pay $30-$40

When registering, please make sure to sign up for either IN STUDIO (10 max) or LIVE STREAM.

Wednesday, December 21 (4:00-5:30pm)

The Winter Solstice marks the turn from the shortest day of the year towards the return of light. In many cultures, this return of illumination is celebrated, welcomed, and revered.
 
I have been leading Solstice celebrations for over 15 years. It has become a long standing tradition and something I look forward to every year.  Join me at Sellwood Yoga, to gather by candlelight and move through a slow, mindful vinyasa flow sequence before moving into a deeply nourishing yin and restorative practice.  Or sign up to LIVE STREAM the class.
 

I will send an email, ahead of time, to everyone who is registered for the class. The email will have some ideas to consider to make your practice time feel more special and aligned with the solstice, whether you are at home or joining me in the studio.

I will also send out some seasonal readings/poems along with a Spotify playlist. It will be your choice whether or not you use the playlist to accompany your time on the mat.

Don’t miss out on this tradition of honoring equinoxes and solstices through celebratory yoga practices. Connect to the rhythms of the year, along with friends, family and community.
