Yoga is for everybody and every body.
This 4 week series is designed for people who have never practiced yoga or have taken fewer than five classes.
We will break down the basic poses and explore how to use props so that “harder” poses become manageable and fun.
Every week will be different; beyond movement and poses, we will explore practices related to breathing and meditation. The workshop will be very interactive—questions will be encouraged, and enrollment will be limited so you’ll get a lot of personal instructions.
The goal of the class will be to give you the confidence to attend any class in any studio, or build your own practice. The instructor will stick around after each class to answer your questions over a cup of tea.

Discover how to use yoga, qi gong, and applied Chinese Medicine philosophy to enhance your body's "root" energy. Chinese Medicine (CM) says to protect and nourish the "Kidney system" in Winter. This system also includes our adrenals (relationship to stress and fear), bones, sexual organs, and sense of hearing. As CM also explains that emotions impact the physical body, we will peripherally focus on becoming aware of fear and stress trapped in the body, using breathing exercises and movements to release.

Yoga is a science, a philosophy, and it can be, but doesn’t need to be, a spiritual practice.
In this unique series we’ll explore the fundamentals of yoga philosophy, including some history and a discussion of how “yoga” came to be associated, in America, mostly with a physical practice.
Week one: The eight limbs of yoga. (Hint: yoga poses, called “asana” are the third limb; we’ll explore the other seven!)
Week two: The greatest hits of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras
Week three: The fundamental lessons in The Bhagavad Gita This is a lecture and discussion series.
We’ll serve a variety of tea and light snacks (cookies and fruit).

Inversions are revitalizing for the body, and refreshing for the mind.
By reversing the normal effects of gravity, they rest the heart, aid circulation, and relieve pressure from the lower back. Proper practice of inversions creates strength, confidence, calmness and clarity of mind.
This workshop is for beginner/intermediate level practitioners interested in learning inversions. We will workshop headstand, forearm balance, handstand, and shoulder stand. We will also focus on maintaining proper awareness and deep breathing while in the postures to achieve maximum benefit, and end with meditation.

Join Logan and your fellow Yoga Mayu community for an afternoon of core work and restorative yoga.
We’ll spend the beginning of class talking about what the core actually is. Contrary to popular belief, the core consists of much more that just abdominals.
Then we’ll move into strengthening the core and learning various exercises we can do in class and at home. The last half of class will be spent restoring the body from all the work we just completed.
We’ll use bolsters, blankets, blocks, sandbags, and eye pillows to settle into relaxing postures - allowing the body, and mind the much needed relaxation it deserves.
All levels are welcome!
