Yoga + Acupuncture
Marilyn Calver leads a restorative class that ends with a fully supported extended savasana. In this fully relaxed state, your body’s ability to heal is at its peak; making savasana a great time to receive acupuncture. Aimee Van Ostrand, L.Ac. will come around to place a few needles to address your specific health issues while you blissfully rest on your mat.
Feel the combined healing power of these two modalities together.
No experience necessary, perfect for beginners or seasoned yogis. Wear comfortable clothing. Yoga mats are but feel free to bring your own. $30.00. To register, stop at our studio or online here.
Meditation for Everyone: Four Week Program
Thursdays, April 26th, May 2nd, May 9th, and May 16th 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
It seems so simple. Sit still, be quiet and meditate. Who doesn’t want to reduce stress, think more clearly, be happier and enjoy better health? So why aren’t we all doing it? Turns out its not so simple. Perhaps you have tried it and struggled with not having enough time, monkey mind, being too tired? These are just some of the typical challenges that get in the way.
In this program you will learn techniques to help set the stage for a successful meditation practice wherever you choose. Each week we will look at what’s getting in the way and how to overcome these obstacles. The work will involve individual and group support. Participants will receive handouts and recordings of the mediations each week for home practice.
Meditation is not so much a state of mind as a collection of skills that can be learned and with practice returned to whenever you choose.
All are welcome. Chairs are an option, if you can not or prefer not to sit on the floor. To register, stop in or online here.
Scholarships are available. Please see Marilyn Calver to apply.
