Do you usually kick off the new year with weight loss resolutions that never see Valentine’s Day? Or feeling sluggish and out-of-shape from all the holiday cookies? Let’s make this year different. Let’s have the best year ever!
 
The new year is when we tend to adopt idealistic resolutions of falling in love with our bodies through restrictive diets and workouts that we dread. Our resolutions only last a few weeks because, let’s face it, they’re soooo not fun. Then, we’re left feeling defeated and self-conscious.
 
Instead of resolutions and restrictive diets this year, it’s time to experience more joy and confidence in your body. In this workshop, you will move through a series of practices to release resolutions and get clear on how you desire to feel in your body. You will learn how to set soulful intentions and design a plan of action to feel exactly how you want to feel in and about your body this year. Together we will flow through a freeing, feel good yoga flow class to shake, soothe, and celebrate our bodies as we usher in the new year!

 
 
 

chanting mantras and meditation

Saturday, Jan. 27th
6:00-7:30 PM

Balance Yoga, 840 West Main St.
Richmond, VT

Register HERE!

Curious about chanting and mantras and how to incorporate them into your own yoga and meditation practice? Join me for an evening of guided group chanting, mantra exploration, and how to use these practices for deeper meditation and relaxation. Learn the meaning behind the sacred sound of “om”, how to use a mala (and your hand!) to count mantra, and how to use mantras and chants to facilitate more focused meditation. We’ll chant for world peace, to overcome obstacles, and to connect to the purest essence of sound. No experience necessary. Beginners encouraged.

A playful exploration of handstand, headstand, & forearm stand with Sangha Studio’s very own Brandy Oswald – an ashtanga vinyasa yoga instructor with a not-so-secret love for flipping upside down.

Together we will explore safe technique and strengthening exercises that will set us for stronger, more stable inversions. Everyone will have the option to play with full handstand, headstand, & forearm stand, however there will be plenty of options and modifications for those interested in building strength, or those new to yoga inversions.

All levels welcome. Fancy-looking handstand selfies on the beach – not necessary. Joy, laughter, & fun – guaranteed!
