Tantric Expansion Cacao Ceremony With Nick Meador   Join transformational facilitator Nick Meador for a cacao ceremony weaving together holistic (mind/body/spirit) therapeutic practices to break through what’s limiting your true potential and start maximizing your life purpose and fulfillment.   This will be a “white tantra” experience focused on soul healing and life force expansion.

Pain is not permanent: Understanding the low back

When: September 3, 2017 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

  SUNDAY, SEP 3 11am – 1pm SUGGESTED DONATION: $20 – 30   If you ever said, “My low back hurts too much to go to yoga today,”  this workshop is for you!  Yoga is a powerful practice for restoring full range of motion and reducing low back pain.  However, not all classes are created equally.  Many of us carry injury or compromise into today’s fast-paced classes, and can leave the room feeling frustrated- or even feeling worse. This workshop is designed for those experiencing chronic low-back stiffness or pain. The class will provide concrete tools to break the cycle of pain= stiffness= avoidance= more pain.  The two-hour class consists of a brief overview of the general anatomy and mechanics of the lower back and a deliberately paced asana practice in a personalized setting.  We will explore common asanas to help give you strategies for increasing physical integration and a greater sense of physical capacity in any class setting. You[...]
