The Studio is presently closed due to the unprecedented circumstances we are experiencing globally. Closure will affect all classes, intensives, workshops and Teacher Training. During this time, staying home and physical distancing are necessary for protecting our communities.
We hope you find our new Home Practice Videos useful while you are on “sabbatical” at home. Enjoy them and share them, as you like.
Along with every other small business owner, we are concerned about the impact a long closure will have on the Studio. If you are able, here are a few ways that you can assist:
– Buy a Class Card now to be used when we reopen
– Purchase a gift certificate for a friend or family member applicable to any event (no expiry date)
– Make a donation for the videos or toward the general running of the Studio. (Please note: we are not a registered charity and cannot provide tax receipts.)
Please check this space for updates or send us an email if you have questions. Take good care and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Studio soon.

Exploring the Psoas

Thursday, April 2, with Tama Soble
6:30pm-9:00pm, $50

The psoas muscle is powerful and intelligent.  It lies deep in the torso connecting spine, pelvis and legs.  Understanding how to release, stretch and strengthen the psoas can help us to integrate and stabilize the entire physical body and free the respiratory system.  We will explore postures and breathing practices to deepen our awareness and understanding of the role of the psoas.
