HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Thank you SO SO much for the most spectacular year. 
It has been so fun and such a honor to yoga with you!

This year just may be even bigger and better!

Three workshops in Jan and one day retreat!

Fight or Flight
A arm balance and self discovery workshop. Arm balances are a great way to spice up your practice as well as lighten it, physically and mentally. They teach us quickly how to get out of our own way and go for the gold. Anything is possible! With this playful approach to adding arm balancing into your practice you will also learn where you hold back and be in a safe environment to experiment, test the limits and play! Whether you have never tried a arm balance or fly all the time this workshop is sure to be fun and offer some new perspectives.

Fight or Flight will be at Shefa Yoga on Jan 18th @2pm
And at Bainbridge Yoga House on Jan 31st 1pm
$30

Yoga Snow & Wine
Bundle up and spend a day outdoors playing in the snow! Separate from your home and routine, to gain a sense of serenity and calmness. Explore the softness of the snow and the contrasting light against the forest. Start your day with a grounding yoga practice indoors. Afterwards, ascend towards the mountains for a lovely beginner/intermediate trek through the forest. End the day, at a local winery (Elsom Cellars) for a glass of wine or hot drink with your new friends and sense of accomplishment.
 Objectives:
Get outdoors in the winter environment
Gain a sense of serenity
Building community while being physically active
Tasting a piece of local history
 Pre-requisites:
None!

Float to Fly!



Float to Fly
Inversion and arm balance workshop@ ShefaYoga sat 26th 2pm
Learning arm balances and inversions is like learning to float and fly!
With a little faith and a shift in your body weight you will find these new moves a fun addition to elevate and actually add lightness to your practice.
Arm balances and inversions enhance the strength and stability of your shoulders and wrists and improves your focus and concentration. An added side benefit of learning these beautiful balancing postures is a nice boost in self-confidence and self-acceptance too!
We will play around with several arm and hand balances and then learn how to incorporate them in to your practice. Several options to getting into different inversions will also be offered. Discover something new in your inversion practice or start one, finding a option that works best for you. There will be several techniques to make these poses totally accessible for any level. All you will need is a open heart and playful attitude!
Let us let go of fears and preconceptions and learn to play and grow in this safe and fun environment.
