Astrology for Beginners
with Rebecca Claes Roach
Friday, April 3rd
7:00 - 9:00pm
$40 per person
Have you always wondered how Astrology actually works? In this class, learn how to really understand your Natal Chart and begin to understand charts for others. Get real tools for the 'curious beginner'! Answer questions like, "What is a rising sign and how does it affect my sun and moon?" "What are the 12 Houses and how do the planets influence them?" "How are the planets and astrology affecting my life right now?"
Understanding my natal chart has been transformative and wonderful experience in my life. I have been a student of astrology for many years and find it offers a positive framework for understanding psychology, life lessons and what we are meant to accomplish on this planet.
My husband and I used astrology to choose our wedding day, a picture perfect Tuesday in Central Park, and chart our course for a happy life. Even with 135 guests, we didn’t have a rain plan and ended up with one of the best weather days of the year.
Over the last few years, I continue to have more opportunities to share astrology through teaching classes, events, personal readings and parties. It is an absolute joy to share something so fun and personal and am grateful for the wonderful students and friends along the way. I am grateful to my astrology teacher, Rebecca Gordon, and am particularly influenced by Liz Greene’s astrology research and books.

Spring Detox Flow with Erica Arce
Saturday, April 11th
2:00 - 4:00pm
$40 per person
The body is a wonderfully efficient and self regulating organism, and yet it relies on your good decision making to keep it running smoothly. Just as your car needs it’s daily maintenance and an oil change every 2000-3000 miles, the body needs regular maintenance and the occasional detoxification and cleanse. Each new season of the year offers a time to do just that. Your health is greatly determined not just by genetics, but affected by how much sleep you allow yourself, your daily environment, how much exercise you get, what you eat and drink and so much more.
This specially designed yoga workshop will address increased health and wellness through a class that works specifically to improve your digestion, increase your metabolism, irrigate your kidneys, strengthen the immune system and more! Yoga itself is naturally detoxifying, however, there are postures and breathing techinques that are by nature more detoxifying than others for your circulatory, digestive and lymphatic systems. This is what you’ll work with. In addition, you'll enjoy a complimentary freshly made detox juice post class.

Yoga for Labor & Delivery
with Kimberleigh Weiss-Lewit
Saturday, April 25th
2:00 - 4:30pm
$95 per couple
This workshop is a wonderful way to connect and practically prepare for the experience together using the tools yoga offers to a birthing women and her partner. I will answer all your questions and leave you with useful information you can use in preparation and during birth! This workshop is the perfect complement to your traditional childbirth education (Lamaze, Bradley, etc) or as preparation for birth and motherhood for couples who understand basic pregnancy and labor processes but need that important sacred space to physically, emotionally, and spiritually honor themselves and this unique experience. Yoga preparation for birth is not only for those planning a "natural" childbirth, but has useful applications for all expectant couples. As a mother and birth doula, I know firsthand how yoga-inspired postures, meditation, vocal toning and visualization can be utilized in pregnancy and labor, and it is my passion to share this wisdom and inspire your practice in pregnancy.
Yin Yoga Intensive
with Eileen O'Sullivan
Sunday, April 26th
2:00 - 4:30pm
$40 per person
A mindful approach to yoga practice, and a perfect complement to the dynamic, more active (yang) styles of yoga. Passive, meditative postures are held from 3 to 5 minutes, targeting the connective tissue that supports the joints, primarily of the hips, sacrum, and spine. This is a quiet, introspective practice and a potent way to investigate the mind/ body link. It is sometimes referred to as restorative with an edge, and in this session you'll find out why. We'll review the basics of meridian theory and Yin yoga, and will have the time to drop in and explore the sometimes subtle, sometimes profound, benefits of this still practice. A perfect opportunity for those who may be curious about Yin, or for those who would welcome immersing themselves in a long in-depth Yin session.
