January 18 | 4:00-6:00 PM
Every day life of sitting for hours on end, hiking, biking, walking and running all demand hip strength, but not flexibility. In fact, these activities can lead to tighter muscles in the hip flexors, rotators and illiopsoas. In this workshop with Jeanette Lee, we'll explore a sequences that will coax the body toward more open hips and learn how to approach hip openers in a safe and effective way for everyday practice. Early Bird code: EBHips good through Jan. 15
January 25 | 4:00-6:00 PM
Flexible, strong hamstrings are a key foundation for any yoga practice, and moving functionally through our lives -- they protect the lower back and help to anchor the sitting bones and open the pelvis. Tight hamstrings can inhibit our ability to lengthen the spine, can lead to lower back injury and prevent us from moving into more advanced poses. This workshop with Rachel Morrison will gently and gradually coax the hamstrings to lengthen and strengthen through a series of techniques and poses designed to create more awareness, flexibility and strength in this key muscle group. Runners welcome! Early Bird code: EBHammies good through Jan. 22
February 1 | 4:00-6:00 PM
The word core is defined as "the central, innermost, or most essential part of anything." To move from the core will change your asana practice. It will deepen every pose and help bring you strength, grace and confidence. In this workshop with Dan Carter, we'll get a clear picture of all 360-degrees sides of the core, explore breathwork and build to a core-focused vinyasa practice. Early Bird code: EBCore good through Jan. 29
February 8 | 4:00-6:00 PM

Restorative Yoga is a practice known to help flexibility, relax the body, still the mind and improve our capacity for healing. While the vibration and tones from singing bowls help us relax and come into a deeper state of consciousness and awareness.
In this workshop, we'll blend these two practices. Paige Lichens, an ERYT 500 Kripalu Yoga & Meditation Teacher, will lead us through a Restorative Yoga practice and then guide us through a singing bowl and gong meditation to balance the chakras and relax your body on a deeper level.
