Special Programs & Workshops:
a Farewell, but Not Goodbye practice
w/Leanne Matullo for her last regular class at the studio
Monday, September 10, 2018 at 5:45 - 7:00 p.m.
Iron Front Events, 3rd Floor
Fostering this yoga community has been one of the great joys of Leanne's life. It all started with a dream & a business plan written while seated on the floor at the Dallas airport after another flight delay.
And, that dream has unfolded over the past three years into a beautiful place of warmth, curiosity, sincerity, laughter, friendship, learning, and discovering at Yoga Dear. Leanne, studio owner, and her husband, Eugene, and baby boy, Bodhi, will be moving to Providence. This practice is not a goodbye, but a farewell. A promise of new beginnings - for you, for them, for Yoga Dear. And, a celebration of the power of yoga and community. Please join us.
Please RSVP as space is limited // Included in your Membership // May use Class Pass or Drop-in
The Blissful Practice w/Ariel Leddington
Saturday, September 15, 2018 at 1 - 3 p.m.
Stress comes in all shapes and forms and is hard to shake. If you are a person who has stress, and want to find a more easeful way to coexist with it, know that you are not alone- there are many of us out there!
This workshop is a place for us to come together and learn tools to move through states of stress and anxiety. We will use breathwork (pranayama), poses designed for concentration and relaxation, and meditation to undo perpetual states of stress.
Students will be able to walk away from this workshop feeling deeply relaxed and nurtured. Sign me up! Right? What you'll learn:
- Pranayama (breathing) practices designed for regulating the nervous system
- Mindfulness Meditation
- Somatic grounding techniques
- Visualization techniques used for regulating the nervous system
- Restorative sequences which also encourage regulation in the nervous system
Students should walk away from the workshop feeling deeply relaxed and grounded in their bodies, and also feel empowered with easy, quick tools they can use when stress comes up in their daily lives. $45//$39 for Yearly Members
Tibetan Sound Healing w/Hadas Green
Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at 7:15 - 8:30 p.m.
Tibetan singing bowls aid in deeply relaxing the body and mind. You might have heard them played at the end of a yoga class to bring you out of your resting pose or in meditation music. Here, you'll experience it live!
Join Hadas Green to enjoy the music of the singing bowls. Class will begin with breathing techniques and a guided meditation before the singing bowls are unveiled.
Leave class feeling relaxed, calm, and present. If you've never experienced the singing bowl music before, here's your chance! Included in Yoga Dear memberships and auto-pays. May use Class Pass or Drop-in Rate.
Yin + Rolling: Classes TBD
We've all felt the tension of "text neck." You might feel the tightness in the shoulders from rounding so much in your "desk job." Or, maybe you have chronic pain in the upper body, even the jaw, and are ready for some relief. Let's get curious about our bodies and help them heal.
Sierra Woodling will use a combination of breath work, yin yoga (deep, passive stretching) and rolling (self massage with therapy balls) to teach you how to release tension in the physical body. She'll help you to clear energetic blockages and help calm the nervous system.
This workshop will specifically address:
- Upper back
- Neck & shoulders
- Bonus (as time permits): Jaw and Head
All attendees will also leave with a set of their very own massage therapy balls to use at home! This workshop is perfect for those who are glued to their phones, desk dwellers, athletes (like runners and golfers), and anyone who seeks major relief for their upper body tension. $55 for the session w/your very own massage therapy balls // $45 for Yearly Members
