Join Eddie and Kristin for a weekend full of self-exploration. Yoga is the path to freedom and a path to the self. Each time you practice, you are giving yourself the opportunity to heal, to look deeper within, to go inside and to explore your personality and what is going on in your body. We all have congestion in the body which leads to congestion in the mind. Over the course of the weekend Eddie and Kristin will guide you through several practices that can lead you closer to stillness and stability of body and mind. Their approach is to teach individuals within a class setting so that each person can leave with some insight as to what would be good for you to practice at home. This is an all levels workshop!

Standing on Your Own Two Feet: Our foundation is the most important thing to create a sustainable practice from. All of us are built differently and have one side of our bodies that is different from the other. In this class, we will work through the feet and hands and help those with hip, knee, and shoulder problems. This class will give you a solid foundation from which to grow from. Everyone is welcome.
Saturday, March 23rd 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Backbends to Lighten up your Life: Backbends allow us to find more freedom from back pain, they open our heart chakra or Anahata Chakra and they stretch our front body. All of these things make it easier to move through life. Backbends can be scary for a lot of people but we will support you in finding access to these poses using support. Everyone is welcome.
Saturday, March 23rd 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm:
Yoga for Women’s Health: Women need yoga now more than ever. Kristin is a breast cancer survivor who has dedicated her life to studying yoga as a healing modality, specifically for women’s health. She has directly used yoga to heal her body, hormones, emotions and much more. We will explore a sequence that will benefit everyone who attends in their own way. This isn’t just about practicing yoga, this will be about coming together as women and spending time on self-love and self-care.
Sunday, March 24th 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Healthy Feet, Knees and Hips: We live in a world where we are constantly in a seated position. Most of us work from a computer or phone and spend time commuting to and from work. This has taken a toll on a lot of our bodies. In this class we will work with the stiffness in our hips, ankles and feet to bring health to the knees and lower body. Everyone is Welcome.
Sunday, March 24th 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Relax Deeply: Get ready to relax and unwind. In this class we will guide you into a deeper meditative state in the postures. Some of the postures may still challenge the body depending on the individual but you will be guided into finding comfort through relaxation. Everyone is welcome.
