Foundations of Flow –
An interactive workshop:
🔆Your postures … your practice … your life; are only as strong as the foundation that YOU create.
🔆Deconstructing familiar postures and elements of a vinyasa practice, to better understand the basic principles and details of alignment; the building blocks of your foundation.
🔆Understanding the value of modifications – modifying postures has absolutely nothing to with weakness, they are an essential part of a mindful, intelligent practice.
🔆Chiropractic wrist adjustments: we will be joined by Dr. Priscilla Shea, DC of Yarmouth Chiropractic, who will be explaining how misalignment in your yoga practice can cause misalignment in your wrists (and everywhere else) and vice versa. She will also be offering individual chiropractic assessments/adjustments (specifically for wrists).
I am SO excited about this!!! 🤓

THURSDAY ❤ May 24th
Yin Yoga & Restorative-Yoga Nidra w/ (optional)
Acupuncture & Cupping Therapy
with kristine keegan & kristen boze
In this workshop you will enjoy the sweet serenity of deep relaxation.
Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, also known as yogic sleep. It is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness. The concept roots from ancient Indian tradition, as a practice of opening to the deeper phases of the mind; promoting internal healing and reduction of tension and anxiety. This uniquely relaxed state produces brain waves that allow one hour of practice to be the equivalent of four hours of sleep.

🌳Using Mindfulness to Manage Stress, Enhance Digestion and Optimize Health 🌳
June 14th & June 21st 🔆 5:30-7:30pm
Part One: Using Mindfulness to Understand and Manage Your Stressors
Part two: Using Mindfulness to Enhance Digestion and Optimize Health
We created this two part series to help you understand the importance of your mental and emotional wellbeing when it comes to your physical health. The ability to take control of your health begins with your thoughts. If you can change the way you think, you can change the way you feel. That is because your body on the outside is a reflection of what is going on inside, including emotions. There’s a saying “when you look good, you feel good”, and maybe that’s true, temporarily. But the deeper truth is that when you feel good emotionally, you begin to feel and look good physically. This workshop is to help you begin your journey of mindfulness to feel your best; mentally, emotionally and physically.
Both parts will include: 🔆 Yoga for stress relief with Kelly Patterson 🔆 auricular (ear) acupuncture to calm the nervous system and reduce cravings 🔆 Discussion on the topic of the evening with Stephanie Walsh and Kristen Boze 🔆 closing Restorative yoga-meditation.
🔆 PREREGISTRATION REQUIRED 🔆 $60

CELEBRATING the THREE FULL MOONS of SUMMER with
YOGA UNDER the STARS ⭐
with ROBIN IVY PAYTON
Summer is the season of growing and blossoming. This practice will be a unique sequence of postures, designed specifically to align us with the heavens. This summer we’ll be practicing during eclipse season; with powerful vibrations, and catalysts for personal and universal shifts.
First Class🌑June 27th🌕7-8:30pm
Full Moon in Capricorn/Cancer
We’ll gather outdoors in the park (right next to The Sunshine Factory) for astrology inspired yoga; infused with essential oil blends chosen to support you at Full Moon time (oils are optional). These two polarity signs, Capricorn and Cancer, represent structure and softness; the bones, the lungs and our earth and water energies. Feel your roots and allow your emotions to arise naturally through lunar salutations, postures for bone strength and for opening the rib cage and front body. Robin will weave astrological insights through the practice. This Full Moon is harmonious with aspects for healing and manifesting, letting go in order to bloom like the flowers of summer.
FULL MOON – CLOUD9 🌑 5:30pm
Astrologically, this is a good time for “letting go”; for releasing all that doesn’t serve you and making space for what does. Acupuncture and Cupping Therapy are excellent tools for encouraging your mind and body to do just that. There will be a special Cloud9 class at 5:30pm (arrive by 6:10) for those who are interested, and who are also attending Full Moon Yoga.
