The Studio is presently closed due to the unprecedented circumstances we are experiencing globally. 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. You are welcome to register for our live online Zoom classes.
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 or for Zoom Classes
– Purchase a gift certificate for a friend or family member applicable to any event (no expiry date)
– Make a donation for the videos, audio tapes, classes 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.

Empowering the Aging Body

Sunday, November 1, with Monica Voss and Tama Soble
Sunday, 10:30am-5:00pm, $175

As the population ages, teachers must inform themselves about natural changes in the body as well as common conditions such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Changes in outlook also occur in older students as they contemplate their lives and goals. Through practice, discussion and analysis, we will explore these and other issues of aging and create intelligent and supportive options in order to instruct older students holistically with energy, knowledge and empathy.

Empowering the Aging Body is intended for certified and non-certified yoga and meditation teachers, teachers-in-training, health professionals, therapists, social workers and interested students of yoga. CEU’s awarded through Yoga Alliance.
