Deconstructing Ashtanga

Ashtanga. Often thought to be intimidating, rigid, unwelcoming, and inaccessible.

In this 5-week series, co-teachers Joyce San Pedro and Amy Reed will dispel the myths and address any fears and concerns about practicing Ashtanga. They'll introduce the practice in a friendly and approachable format - appropriate for ALL bodies and ALL levels of experience. Each class will build upon the week before, as students learn and apply the Tristana method of breath, focus, and posture as we explore the Primary Series. At the end of the series, students will have a foundation in Ashtanga that can be the basis of a home practice, as well as the confidence and comfort to step into a Mysore or Led class

Intro to Tai Chi & Qigong

Introduction to the principles of Tai Chi and Qi Gong.

Qi gong and Tai Chi are two closely related activities that when practiced correctly on a regular bases can reduce stress and improve your quality of life no matter what age or physical condition. A carefully designed combination of Qi Gong and health enhancing Tai Chi is composed of four components:

Gentle Movement

• Breath Practice

• Self-Applied Massage

• Relaxation Practice Through Meditation and Visualization

Tai chi and Qi Gong are simple exercise programs thousands of years old and yet easy to learn without added cost of special equipment or special clothing. 

There is a spontaneous self-healing, self-medicating, self-rehabilitating component in every person’s body, mind, spirit interactivity. Even though a disease may come from the outside, as in a virus, the internal healing mechanism of the immune system is the most important healer. A doctor may set a broken leg, but it is our body that repairs the break. The most profound medicine is already in us. We can learn and apply methods to activate the medicine within and its ability to help our bodies heal. Vitality cultivation -- Tai Chi, Qi Gong (pronounced chee gung) and Yoga -- are systems of health promotion based on ancient Asian medicine. They can be very easy to learn and simple to apply.

The ancients knew that by practicing Qi Gong and Tai Chi they were creating a more focused mind and a healthy energetic body. Please join me and explore the path to  these self healing, meditative movements that can improve your health and reduce your stress on your terms.

Intro To Bhakti and Tantra

An Introduction to Bhakti and Tantra


Yoga philosophy is a deep and bountiful well. Come learn about two of the most important threads in Indian thought and how they can help you deepen your practice of yoga, and day-to-day experiences. 


Bhakti Yoga is the practice of devotion, and tantra is the philosophy of a non-duality between the sacred and profane. Come learn how these two paths interweave and deepen each other, and most importantly, how to practice them authentically and effectively. We will also practice one of the main methods in both threads, chanting of mantra.


About Renee:

Renee (aka Radharani) is a yoga teacher and singer of Indian and world devotional and sacred music. She began teaching yoga in 2003 and spent more than 4 years living in India studying philosophy and music and undertaking pilgrimages to remote sacred places. In 2008, she met kundalini/kriya master Dr. Vagish Shastri in Varanasi, India. After studying sanskrit and philosophy with him for several years, and editing several of his books, he empowered her to offer his kundalini kriya yoga teachings and energy. She also sat at the feet of great masters of devotional practice and learned the deep teachings of Bhakti Yoga. She now takes people on pilgrimages to sacred sites in India, teaches voice and chant, and performs sacred music with many of todays most influential devotional musicians. Her album of original music Just One Drop (2016) has received acclaim in yoga circles throughout the world.
