After decades of working with clients and training thousands of teachers, Yoga Medicine’s Founder, Tiffany Cruikshank, has distilled the core components of a therapeutic practice into a 4-part workshop. The Yoga Medicine® Essentials Workshop will dive into the nuances of topics that are hard to fit into group classes, but are crucial for all yoga practitioners and teachers to understand in order to optimize the way we move. Each workshop will outline the structure and function of a key anatomical area and the network of fascia that supports and coordinates functional movement in this region. You will leave with an arsenal of information to instantly incorporate into your dynamic practice and teaching.
We are excited to have senior Yoga Medicine teacher, Jenni Tarma in the studio to lead this incredible workshop!

Unwind and release tension through restorative yoga postures in a relaxing candlelit environment on Sunday evenings in November. This class is designed to restore your mind & mind. We'll move through a series of gentle and supported restorative yoga poses held for longer periods of time, which facilitate your body's Parasympathetic Nervous System aka your Rest & Digest response. The room will be illuminated by the soft lighting of Himalayan salt candle holders.
The Himalayan salt candles have many health benefits including:
-Cleansing and purifying the air
-Balances electromagnetic radiation
-Aids with concentration and mental clarity
-Alleviate respiratory symptoms such as asthma and allergies
Receive all the benefits of Sound Healing during your final savasana/resting pose as you listen to the gentle sounds of the Crystal Singing Bowls. Each week, we'll explore Sound Healing related to specific chakras working from the Root Chakra to the Crown Chakra using bowls tuned to frequencies that resonate with each chakra energetically. You'll leave with a sense of tranquility & peace! All Levels Welcome - especially beginners!!
Some benefits of practicing restorative yoga include:
-A sense of overall well-being
-Aids with healthy sleep habits
-Mental clarity & calmness
-Reduced stress & anxiety
More about Sound Healing:
Sound Healing facilitates shifts in our brainwave state by providing a stable frequency which the brain can attune to. By using rhythm and frequency, we can entrain our brainwaves and it then becomes possible to down-shift our normal beta state (normal waking consciousness) to alpha (relaxed consciousness), and even reach theta (meditative state) to find deep relaxation. The Crystal Singing Bowls correspond to the 7 Major Chakras, which are energy centers within the body. When our chakras are aligned, we feel balanced and healthy.
Sound Healing & Restorative Yoga are both passive and participatory experiences. The passive aspect is that you become more relaxed by supporting your body with props in yoga postures and slowing your breath. It is in this place of stillness that you are able to become more open and aware.
