Sunday Satsang

Sunday Satsang

“Satsang” is a Sanskrit word often recognized as a sacred gathering where true company can hold a spiritual discourse. We are hosting a monthly satsang for all those interested in learning, sharing, or simply holding space in good company.

Starting 1/27, Sunday Satsang will be held on the last Sunday of every month at 12:45pm. Marisa Atula will host, introducing the monthly topic, and mediate the conversation.

No cost, no mats necessary, no need to sign up ahead of time.

Postnatal Yoga & Pilates Workshop

Postnatal Yoga & Pilates Workshop

Join Suzanne of Humble Haven Yoga and Jaclyn of Niche Pilates Studio for a Postnatal Yoga and Pilates workshop where you will learn three vital techniques for caring for the postpartum body, specifically diastasis recti.

Both Yoga and Pilates will teach you to find length through the spine, essential for the organs to return to their new normal and the core muscles to realign for proper engagement. Take a deeper dive into Pranayama, breath control, exercises as you learn to breathe through the full range of motion of the diaphragm allowing organs and muscles to return to their home and give mobility to the spine. By working through alignment of Yoga and Pilates postures and movements, we will bring awareness to the minut engagements of the core muscles. Enjoy a supported inversion as you complete your work, giving the body a gentle reminder for the organs to come in and down for better accessibility to the core muscles. If you are brand new to Yoga or Pilates or a seasoned practitioner of both, this a great opportunity to combine two different, yet complimentary, modalities of movement to bring more awareness and strength to the core and spine.

Cost: $35 / Person

Jaclyn Forrester has enjoyed movement and biomechanics since she was a teenager. She studied Exercise, Sport, Health and Education in college. After graduation she found that she was searching for additional skills and information to help her clients. She found Pilates was applicable to a wide range of clients, pre and post injury, post natal, general strength, breath work and posture. Jaclyn dove into practice. She was trained in mat and reformer through STOTT Pilates in 2008. The mind body practice led Jaclyn to study yoga as well. She completed RYT 200 in 2012. In 2016 Jaclyn was accepted into the Balanced Body Pilates Master teacher training program. In January of 2017, she completed the training and now offers Pilates instructor training and mentoring at her studio.

Suzanne's love for yoga began in 2009 while living in Washington, DC.  After practicing both Bikram and Power Yoga regularly for a few of years, Suzanne decided to earn her 200 hour teaching certification through Down Dog Yoga.  What has always drawn Suzanne to this practice is its ability to build communities and empower the individual practitioner.  To continue her goal to teach yoga to every body, Suzanne continued her quest as a student by becoming a licensed practitioner of Yoga for the Special Child in 2014 and completing her 85 hour prenatal teaching certification in 2015.  Suzanne's goal as a teacher is to empower and encourage exploration both physically and mentally for all ages and abilities.

Kriya Party - March 8

Kriya can be translated in multiple ways but essentially means to dedicate oneself to the completion of an action. In many traditions, kriya is linked to cleansing - the body, mind, and/or energy. Marisa Atula and Rachel Knight’s Kriya Party is an exploration of physical movement, breathwork, and mediation with the intention to cleanse the physical body, the subtle energy, and the stagnation of winter. Expect some familiar techniques in an unexpected way. Class will be unheated and with music.
