Yoga for your Dosha w/ Andrea Claassen – Saturday, Nov. 11 4-6pm

$30 – Please register here by Nov. 7th to reserve your spot!

Ayurveda Workshop: Understanding your dosha & a yoga practice according to your Dosha
During this workshop you will discover your unique individual constitution, understand how it plays a role in your daily life, learn how to find balance with your dosha and how to practice yoga according to your dosha. “In Ayurveda, the five elements that are found in all living things—ether, air, fire, water, and earth—are the building blocks of life. While this foundation unites all humans, the manifestation of those elements through the doshas is what gives rise to our differences. How the three doshas appear, and in what proportion, is what makes each of us unique.” – Johnny Brannigan

Invoke Your Fierce Feminine Voice w/ Invoke Magazine – Emily Levang & Anna Befort – Saturday Nov. 18th 1-3pm 


Cost: $25 early-bird price before Oct. 31, $30 after (+registration fees)

In this time of intensity in our world, it’s easy to get overwhelmed, numb, or exhausted. Perhaps you’ve felt those places where you hold back, get stuck, or shrink in the face of everything that’s happening in the world. There is a ginormous collective shadow that keeps women’s voices quiet, yet what the world needs now, more than ever, is the free-flowing expression of aware women’s fierce love for life. This is why we need sisterhood to remind us: you are not alone, and your voice matters.

Now is the time to invoke the inner warrioress, the voice of the one who takes no shit, who stands strong in the face of fear. Loud or quiet, this fierce feminine voice is rooted in conviction and sourced in love.

Led by Emily Levang and Anna Befort, this workshop will gather together those who identify as women to strengthen our connection to our fierce feminine voices. Through movement, ritual, and writing, we’ll dance with the shadow that holds us back, whether that’s fear, avoidance, overwhelm, perfectionism, or procrastination. And we’ll stoke that internal fire of truth in order to carry it courageously into our lives, our relationships, and our communities, invoking the kind of world we want to live in.

Cost: $25 early-bird price before Oct. 31, $30 after (+registration fees)
Space will be limited, so we highly encourage pre-registering!

Invoke is an online magazine that calls on the collective wisdom of women. We publish articles that uplift, empower, and connect. We believe women’s voices are vital medicine for this time on our planet and every woman has a creative spark to share. We invite you to join us! Learn more at invokemagazine.com.

Merging With The Elements: A Vinyasa Flow w/ Cacao + Sacred Drumming w/ Amy Heilman

Saturday, November 25th 3-5pm

$35 before Nov 20 / $45 Register here

Explore the fusion of the ancient internal practices of Yoga and Shamanism. Yoga (union with the Divine) and Shamanism (interaction with the spirit world) both are practices traditionally designed to lead us to the direct flow of wisdom. We begin the class with a cup of Sacred Cacao to connect us to Spirit and to help expand our Heart Chakra (30 min). We then use the ancient teachings of Nature’s Five Elements for this intense and transformational yoga practice(90 min). Our experience will be deepened by the constant thread of Sacred Sounds performed live. 

Guided by the cycles of the Five Elements, we will embody the energies of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether. As we become each of these elements, we will learn valuable lessons that will allow us to reveal our passions, to shift perceptions, and to dream our world into being. You will leave the practice feeling spiritually cleansed, emotionally empowered, and expansive….ready to live life the life that wants to live in you! Now is the time to reveal yourself to yourself. As the Hopi Elders stated: “We are the ones that we’ve been waiting for.”
