Ashtanga Led Primary is a led, flowing practice that includes vinyasas and connecting breath to movement, while balancing strength and flexibility in a fun, invigorating atmosphere. The Ashtanga Primary Series is a pre-established sequence developed by Pattabhi Jois. Basic understanding of yoga required.
New students are taught individually small amounts of a set sequence (Ashtanga Primary Series) that increases over time, depending on how frequently the student attends the class and the capacity of the student (based on strength, flexibility, focus, and stamina). When practiced consistently, the poses reveal strength, purification, and alignment in the body, breath, and mind. Once the portion of the sequence given has been memorized, new postures are introduced and added to the sequence. A teacher is present to offer guidance, assistance, modifications, and to answer questions. Mysore is a simple, effective, ancient method of learning yoga. As a beginner, you can expect to be in class for 20-30 minutes. As you advance, your practice will increase to 1-1.5 hours. All Levels. ***NEW STUDENTS PLEASE NOTE: During weekday morning Mysore, please arrive at 9:30am***
Symbols and signs permeate our everyday experiences, but we seldom investigate or even notice them, which puts us at their mercy. If we recognize the intention behind the symbol, we unlock our relationship to its magic. In this class we’ll discuss the astrological glyphs of the planets and zodiac signs, explore their meaning, common themes of construction and handy shortcuts for remembering how to identify them on the fly. This course is designed for the astrologically-curious who are graduating from Sun sign horoscopes and interested in developing a deeper connection to the natal chart. IG: @neongeometryastrology

Our creative gifts are presented to us effortlessly when we align within. As within so without. In this workshop, we will open our energy channels and clear blockages so that we can connect with our unique soul purpose.

The intention is for you to leave knowing you have tapped into your intuitive healing powers and have many tools to cast your own spells in daily life.

Magic is the result of focused energy aligning with Nature. When we are aligned with our Heart, the energy expands and guides our work. When we are not, the work falls flat and we are shown where we are mis-aligned with Nature's flow. Either way, we are guided back to our own heart: our soul battery, our rhythm. This is our soul food, not our snack. In this class we will tap into your Heart to energize your magical work. Through guided meditative inquiry, and discussion about ways to access the heart vibration and spellcrafting, we will activate your Heart vibration to unite you with your dreams. This is magic for a joyful heart. IG: @oops.infinity.again
