Salute to the Sun
with Vanessa Jones

Join Vanessa for a Salute to the Sun! Sun Salutations, or Surya Namaskar A, when practiced in repetition becomes a sort of moving meditation, where the minds chatter is quieted and you move seamlessly with your breath. The number 108 is sacred in many ways, some of which will be discussed in this series. Come celebrate the sun and its life giving energy as we prepare for the Summer Solstice, a time to cleanse, detoxify and get more in touch with yourself. 

Intro to
Somatic Release
with Chan Follen

Somatic healing is a healing modality that recognizes the connection with the mind and body in the healing process. In this class we begin to learn the practice of experience and dive in deeper to understand ourselves and where we hold stress, emotions, and beliefs. From that understanding we begin to release the held tension that has been stored in the body for days, months and even years. This class will consist of meditation and deep introspection. Journals are optional to document any revelations and progress in your journey.

This workshop is designed for parents, teachers, childcare providers, counselors, coaches, or anyone else who is interested in practicing mindfulness, in finding a better way to serve those who need our help the most, and in rediscovering the passion and purpose that inspires us to love an care for our most vulnerable. *3 hours of CEUs through Yoga Alliance is available*
