Weds. 7:30– 9:30 pm resumes Jan. 16th
Workshops with Nina Wise & Sybil Meyer give you the physical and spiritual tools to translate your inner life into theater. Everyone has a story to tell. But few of us have the opportunity to express ourselves freely in a safe and supportive environment. What makes these workshops unique is the emphasis on the integration of body, mind, and spirit.

Yin & Yang Workshop
with Betty Aten & Sally Pugh
Sat. Feb. 2nd 2:00 – 5:00pm
Join Sally Pugh & Betty Aten to explore how the practice of Yin Yoga can complement and enhance an active Yang practice to promote bone strength and joint health.
The workshop will begin with Yin Yoga a meditative practice that allows us the opportunity to stop and listen to the wisdom of our bodies. Floor poses are held for 3-5 minutes targeting the body’s connective tissues, bones and joints, promoting healing and fluidity in those tissues.
Building on the foundation of our Yin practice, we will transition to more active and traditional yoga practice (Yang Yoga), adding standing poses and twists to support the strength, flexibility, and balance work that benefits bones and joint health.
The workshop will end with restorative poses and deep relaxation that allow the body and mind to integrate the complementary forces of Yin and Yang Yoga.
All experience levels are welcome. Workshop Fee: $60
Breathing Space: A Mindfulness Workshop
with Wendy Beckerman
Saturday, March 16, 2019 1:00 – 3:00pm
Mindfulness is our capacity to bring kindhearted attention to whatever’s happening in the present moment. The familiar phrase, “take a deep breath” can be a reminder to stop and view the immediate experience from a kinder, wiser space. This experiential and interactive workshop offers tools to help you breathe more ease and presence into your body and your life, just as they are. We will:
*Explore the connection between the breath and releasing tension and stress
*Practice breathing exercises that calm the nervous system
*Experience gentle, mindful movements designed to allow more space to breathe
*Focus on the natural breath to improve concentration and nurture relaxation
*Discuss simple self-care tools that can easily be practiced throughout the day.
Be prepared to sit, stand, move gently, and lie down, as we practice being present together. No special clothes needed – just dress comfortably.
Cost: $35 early registration by March 9; $40 after March 9
