Arm Balance Workshop, 2/1
Join Heather on Saturday, February 1st, 1-3pm for a thorough and playful exploration of arm balances! Learn how to increase core strength and flexibility as we investigate rooting down to find lift off. While instruction and observation will play heavily into the class, there will be plenty of practice and lots of time to levitate! We’ll explore several poses – including but not limited to: crow, firefly, and eight angle. 2 hours of arm balance exploration on a Saturday? We can’t think of anything more fun!
Because this is a rigorous workshop, participants should have prior yoga experience and a foundation on basic asana alignment.

Are you ready to take your yoga practice deeper? Save the date for Sunday, 1/12 from 2-3pm to learn more and find out if the Mudra Yoga 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training program is a good fit for you!

On Winter Solstice the days are short and the nights at their longest reach. There is much hope this day as the light begins to make its return and we have the opportunity to set intentions for Winter! To celebrate this seasonal phenomenon, we’ll hold a traditional 108 Sun Salute session on Winter Solstice, Saturday, December 21, 2019 from 1 – 2:45pm.
The 108 practice is truly one of dedication and moving meditation. You may find yourself in your head at the beginning, but will be firmly rooted in the body and the flow by the end and full of abundant energy! Do not fret if you feel you might not be able to do 108 full salutes – we’ll offer modifications and resting options if you need to sit any out. Check out this article to find out more about the significance of the 108.
We will talk about salute adaptations at the beginning of the session to make this practice accessible.
We’ll practice in rounds and will have time in between to steady the breath.
Please bring a water bottle or travel mug (we’ll have Mountain Rose Herb’s chai to nourish you after the practice!) and a small towel for perspiration to have handy during practice.
The practice will take about an hour and 20 minutes and we’ll finish with a gentle cool down and savasana.
Inversions like handstands can be invigorating and fun! They increase circulation, build strength, help overcome fear, and build self-confidence. Learn techniques and alignment essential to practicing inversions safely and confidently. Join Lindsey as she guides you through an overview of anatomy that relates to inversions and uncover key actions that will assist you in working towards headstand, handstand and forearm balance.
No prior inversion experience required, though you should have a steady yoga foundation.
If you are a yoga instructor, Lindsey is a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider and time in her classes qualifies for YA continuing education credit.
Thanksgiving Flow, Thursday 11/28
**This class is now full! Gratitude to all. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!**
Come flow with an attitude of gratitude! Join us on Thanksgiving for a special hour of yoga from 9-10 am. The class will focus on burning calories through active vinyasa flows, steadying minds in preparation for the socialization to come – and setting the body up for good digestion. Come alone or share the session with family and friends to start the day on a note of rejuvenation, peace, and gratitude. All other classes are cancelled on Thanksgiving and the Friday after.
Enjoy this time of gratitude with your friends and family!
Happy Holidays! Mudra will be closed at times when classes naturally thin December 23-25; and New Year’s Day, January 1. We also have a reduced schedule 12/31 (no regular 5:30pm Vinyasa or 7pm Restorative – instead join us for a special NYE Intention Flow – see here for details). Join us for healthy, supportive yoga to stay grounded, joyous and feeling great. Then continue to have a wonderful time celebrating with friends and family during the holidays!
