Family Yoga and Art (Ages 4-8)

Come and have fun at this two-hour family yoga workshop with Debbie Helfeld and Geneva Moss.

Head to Heart to Hips

Come home to your body! This practice will take you full circle as we start with hip work and open up hamstrings. Happier hips will bring us right up to a more open heart space to help us find greater ease in our backbends. We will work with successive approximations of deeper poses so that we approach heart opening in small steps taking into account exactly what your body and what your practice is ready for. After exploring the deliciousness of backbends we will come back around to our hips so that we end class with a well grounded and supported rest. Practice appropriate for Yoga Level 1-2 students and above.

Reiki Level 1 Training, Part 1: Reiki Self-Care

Would you like to learn a simple practice that helps you feel better? Would you like to be able to use your own hands to help you calm yourself, ease your stress, and strengthen your resilience? Reiki self-care is a subtle, meditative practice that is easy to learn. In this 6-hour class you will learn how to use your own light touch to help you ease into a relaxed and calm state. When practiced every day, Reiki self-care can help relieve stress, anxiety and pain; and improve sleep, digestion and overall well-being. Daily Reiki self-care restores balance in your system and supports your body's natural ability to heal. The class is primarily experiential with many opportunities to practice both during the class and at home. We will also discuss the health benefits of Reiki self-care, the origins of Reiki practice, and the Reiki principles that support the practice.

Students interested in learning to practice Reiki informally on others, and who wish to receive a Reiki Level 1 certificate, may complete the training by taking Reiki Level 1, Part 2: Reiki Practitioner. For those interested only in Reiki self-care, you are welcome to take Part 1 only. Part 1 is a prerequisite for students who wish to take Part 2.

Self-Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a safe, gentle, and effective practice that can be used to release muscular tension, prevent injury, and increase range of motion. A regular practice of Myofascial Release can also improve blood and lymphatic circulation and aid in the prevention of lower back pain. In this interactive workshop, you will learn how to use a foam roller* and tennis balls to apply gentle, sustained pressure to your body's connective tissues. You will practice mobilization techniques for the upper and lower extremities and the thoracic and lumbar spine--techniques that you can take with you and practice any time, on your own. Please wear comfortable clothing appropriate for a movement class. This workshop is not intended for Super Gentle students nor for students with osteoporosis.

* All students must bring their own full round, 31" or 36" long foam roller, which can be purchased at Circle Yoga, a sporting goods store, or online. The length of the roller is important - it’s necessary in order to fully participate in all the exercises.
