Jenny Dayton is here and ready to rock your abs!! This abdominal focused class gives you a deeper sense of strength and stability. We will practice a series of core postures and breathing techniques that are challenging and energizing, while modifications are always offered for the beginner. A stronger core takes pressure off the lower back and improves our posture and overall balance. We will also explore how to balance and activate samana vayu, our energy body located at navel center, which oversees the digestion of everything from food to thoughts. All levels welcome.

Join Melissa Murtha, LAc, MSTOM, and Brynn Cunningham, RYT-200, for the third annual acupuncture and yoga event to usher in the autumn season. Brynn will guide students through yin yoga poses targeting the joints and connective tissue of the hips, pelvis and low back on the physical level and the Lung and Large Intestine meridians on the energetic level. While students are holding the still, grounding Yin postures for two to 10 minutes, Melissa will insert acupuncture beads or seeds into the ears with the intention of clearing the pathways of the late summer organ meridians, the Spleen/Pancreas and Stomach, while strengthening the autumn organ meridians of the Lung and Large Intestine. According to Chinese Medicine, autumn is the time of Metal, associated with air and the lungs. Likewise, the YinYoga Meridian Theory states that when we practice certain poses we facilitate healing and balance energy through the compression and stretching of meridians with deep, diaphragmatic breathing. Melissa and Brynn will lead students in meditation as they recline in complete surrender and attune themselves with the transition of the seasons. Class will end with an extended supported Svasana and Yoga Nidra. Please wear loose fitting clothing shorts for proper placement of needles.

I am honored to guide you through a transformative experience to assist you in releasing emotions that may be stored in your body related to ANY loss you have experienced. This practice incorporates movement, breath, and sound, as vehicles for release. We all have a wide range of losses and no loss is more important than another. Join me for a 75 minute journey as we move through 4 distinct phases that make up the practice. We will work towards building an awareness of what feelings we are holding on to and then move toward expressing them through movement and breath. Next, we will move toward re connecting with feelings that fill us up with joy and finally surrender to the idea of letting go of pain while staying connected to love. This class is appropriate for all levels and does not require previous yoga experience. The asana (physical practice) is gentle and simple poses. Meditation and journaling are also part of the class experience. It is recommended that you bring a journal and something to drink.
