Upcoming Events & Workshops

Open The Heart With Backbends

Workshop with Megan Bello

UtthitaTrikonasana Celebrate Valentines Day early with a Backbend Workshop.

Backbends energize, refresh and invigorate the body helping us to counteract fatigue. They challenge us to overcome fears and limitations and live life in the present moment. Backbends open the chest, improving the circulation and allowing the breath to flow more freely bringing clarity and expansion to the mind.

Many of us experience fear when we first practice backbends, fear of injury, fear of the unknown, fear to be that open but if we continue their practice we discover a joy, freshness and childlike experience of the world. We become more connected to the intelligence of the heart.

In this workshop, we will explore and open ourselves to the intelligence of the heart through the practice of backbends.

Explore the Shoulders

Workshop with Nathan Blum

UtthitaTrikonasana In this workshop we will explore the alignment and action of the shoulder joint and its supporting structures. Through correct placement of the shoulder in the shoulder joint we will work to find freedom and support. The workshop will progress to applying this exploration of the shoulder joint to back bending poses. The workshop will help improve posture and help practitioners to find a relaxed, comfortable, and stable shoulder position.

Nathan has been practicing yoga since 2002 and teaching since 2011. He is an Introductory II level certified Iyengar Yoga teacher. Nathan has studied with Marla Apt & Garth McLean in Los Angeles and did his teacher training with Pixie Lillas in Sydney, Australia. He enjoys sharing the transformative power of the yoga journey with all students both experienced and new.

Semi-Private Class Starts up again Fall


Practicing yoga can reduce tension and tightness that contribute to the sensations of pain in the back. Practicing yoga poses can help to alleviate pain in the lower back, improve posture, strenghten the abdominal muscles and open the hips and hamstrings.

In this class students will be taught a series of poses that are simple, easy to follow and effective to practice at home as well as at the yoga studio.

(Please consult a physician before starting a yoga practice.)
