*both include a vegan home made lunch
11:30-1:30 Kundalini: Pranamaya Kosha Cleanse with Michael Gould

Koshas are the layers of our being. The physical body, the prana (energy/breath) body, the mental body, the observer body and the bliss body.
In a well balanced yoga class we access them all. During these 2 workshops we will dive deep into understanding these layers of our being with practices that will cleanse you through meditations, pranayama exercises, physical asanas, chanting, observing how we can move our energy with our mind and breath in Zen yoga and a deep release into a blissful state of non-resistance.
This seasonal protocol will apply specific practices that correspond to the SPRING element which will reset your being and bring you into harmony with the season.
Free Your Shoulders
Workshop with Jory Serota
Saturday April 20 1-3pm $40
The shoulder is one of the most complex joints in the human body and its health and functionality are crucial to our yoga practices. With 17 muscles that attach to the shoulder blade and over 10 that attach the humerus, maintaining both stability and mobility can be a fun and exciting challenge.In this 2-hour workshop we will explore the ranges of motion of the shoulder and build strength and flexibility in the joint. We’ll look at poses to work with the rotator cuff as well is the stubborn pec minor muscle. This class is open to all levels but will at times be challenging. Modifications are always given.
