The Alchemy of YES! Inspired by Hanumanasana
Limited Capacity seats available

What, enlighten up with Hanumanasana?! You may feel up against a seemingly insurmountable task. However, by establishing yourself in a steadfast connection to your heart, your breath and your alignment (along with a good sense of humor), what seems impossible becomes an invitation to discover your own strength and freedom. We will tap into the POWER OF YES. Hanuman reminds us that great leaps of faith are possible through love. He serves Bhakti to help us return to living from our hearts. Invite the spirit of love and devotion (Bhakti) through both unwavering strength and refined sensitivity. Invigorating and exciting is the moment when it all comes together. In this workshop, we will break down everything all the way to the tips of your toes and show how it all fits together to reveal the bravery in your own heart. Be ready for pure ecstasy! Achieving Hanumanasana (Full Split Pose) is only the beginning. There is always more to the pose to explore. And the more tiny adjustments you attempt can make a massive difference. You will feel the possibilities, notice subtleties and make adjustments that enable you to come closer to understanding this pose. This illumination will spread throughout your yoga practice and your life. Get ready to be transformed! Saying YES on the mat will teach you how to say YES to your Best Life Ever. Expect inspirational music, Hanuman chants and talk story about the mythological story of Hanuman, King Rama’s bestie, who filled with love and powered by YES took a giant leap across the ocean to reach the island of Sri Lanka in order to help King Rama re-unite with his wife Sita.

Open hips, open Heart!
Limited Capacity seats available

Open hips, open Heart! An open heart is the goal of all yogis! However, tension, stress and the rigors of daily activities make it challenging to physically experience an open heart. From poor posture to tight hip flexors, we become limited in fully opening up to the world around us. Through back bending the energy of the 4th Chakra can flow and open with love, compassion, and confidence! This backbend class mindfully opens the hip flexors while leading into several heart opening (back bends) postures. We will workshop several advanced back bends including hollow back and drop backs.

Limited Capacity seats available

Through the confluence of vinyasa flow, myth, and meditation, we will be exploring the story of Ṡvetaketu from the Chañdogya Upaniṣad. The young scholar learns about the underlying unitary source, beyond shape and form, within everything and everyone and learns the three words that express the ultimate reality, "Tat Tvam Asi" or "You are that." We will be flowing through a vinyasa practice incorporating backbends, hip-openers, forward bends, as well as mantra and meditation. All levels welcome.

Pathway to padmasana - the journey to the ultimate yoga pose
Limited Capacity seats available

Padmasana (lotus pose) is every yoga practitioner’s dream. Ancient yogis consider this to be the ultimate seat for gaining wisdom and reaching the pinnacle of self realization. It is the pursuit of this pose, that lead many ancient yogi’s to develop a deeper asana practice. While Padmasana appears to be non- challenging in its appearance. This pose is subtle, but when done correctly can bring about a sense of lightness in the whole body and turn the mind inwards. Having been born and raised in India till recently, Arundhati could always do Padmasana easily. But many of her students struggled with the simplest knee folding poses in the West. This lead her to develop the ‘pathway to padmasana’ workshop. Join us to discover a unique, fun, effective yoga sequence to build up to a lifelong safe practice of the ultimate lotus pose. Workshop will include the fundamental poses to open muscles around the hips, legs, groins, back and more. Participants will receive a digital sequence of the practice with modifications and benefits. Custom modifications for your body will be offered. Come, discover the ultimate yogic seat.
