YOGA FOR HORMONE BALANCE with Susan Desmarais
Wednesday, February 22, 5:30-7pm ~ This class illuminates the chakras, the endocrine system, and the many ways yoga can balance and enhance them. Through both lecture and practice we will explore how various asanas can fine-tune each endocrine gland to better play its part in an ongoing hormonal symphony - whose optimal function is essential to good health  
$18 or class card at the door

'THE WORK' OF BYRON KATIE with Barbara Cherington
Wednesday, February 22, 7:30-9:30pm ~ How different would your life be if negative thoughts never bothered you again? The Work is a simple but powerful method of self-inquiry developed by renowned teacher and author Byron Katie. While undergoing a recovery process herself in 1986, Katie discovered that any kind of stressful thought can be identified, investigated, and inverted or 'turned around', altering the thought's power to shape perception, behavior, or one's sense of self. Join Katie trainee Barbara Cherington to explore this direct way to gain insight into your thinking and move beyond its limitations. $18 or class card at the door

Release Into RESTORATIVE YOGA* with Karen Barbarisi and Keith Herndon
Saturday, February 25, 2-4pm ~ Join Karen Barbarisi and Keith Herndon for an in-depth experience of Restorative Yoga - a therapeutic system that uses the comfortable support of cushions & blankets to nurture the body in various gentle, long held resting postures. Restorative Yoga allows the nervous system to completely quiet and return to a balanced state, quieting the mind. As attention focuses on each breath, Restorative Yoga also cultivates the qualities of mindfulness and presence. $35 or class card x 2 + $5 at the door; $28 if registered by February 22 via email with Karen or Keith

KIRTAN with Shubalananda plus special guests
Saturday, February 25, 7:30pm ~ Created by ancient Indian rishis from Vedic mantras, kirtan is a yoga of sound - an evening of beautiful music and heartfelt call-and-response singing. No previous experience is necessary to experience its emotional depth, yet powerful as it is, kirtan is effortless and incredibly enjoyable. Freely offered ~ please make a donation!

Dance! 5 RHYTHMS: An Ecstatic Moving Meditation with Margaux Skalecki
Friday, March 3, 7:30-9:30pm ~ The 5 Rhythms offer an invitation to come as you are ~ no dance experience needed, just your curiosity as a first step to awareness through movement and deeper conscious connection to ourselves and others. We dance as a welcoming back into our bodies by an expressive and connective body warm up, fine tuning our truth in the moment. How do I feel? How is my body doing? $15 at the door
