Lunar Hatha Yoga 

with Reva and michael be

Wednesday, August 1st 2018 8:30pm-9:30pm


Lunar Hatha Flow is a reflective and intentional flow practice. Much like Vinyasa, we link postures together and use breath to guide the movement. No Chaturangas in this class. The heat is built from within.

The combination of Reva’s watery flow from the Pacific Northwest and Michael Be’s sunny sound from Southern California is an amazing collaboration. Yoga is about union and we celebrate that here!! Join us as we unite body and breath, music and movement.

Reva has completed 400 hours of teacher training, 200 in each Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga. She has found a very balanced practice by blending the two together and loves to share this approach with others.

Michael Be has been DJing for 21 years and has explored a wide range of genres and brings a refined awareness of how music and movement can be used to achieve full expressions in our bodies.

Cost:  $20 Register here.


Pop Up Yoga Nidra

With Laura

Sunday, August 12th, 2018 4:00pm-5:15pm


Yoga Nidra is a deeply meditative form of yoga practiced in stillness. Students are guided by the teacher into a state of psychic sleep that opens pathways to realizations and experiences that often lay dormant in a more active state of brain activity. This intimate class is a wonderful opportunity for anyone looking to try Yoga Nidra as well as for those who are experienced practitioners. Join Laura in a beautiful off-site Seward Park location for this 8-person class. No experience necessary. All are welcome.

Cost is $25

Kate Poux has been a teacher for 20+ years. She recently made a timeline of her own menopause and wrote this poem:

It’s not real fear or anger,
It’s just old age coming.
Really, I like her.
But, shamefully, I do not feel happy to see her.
She sits at a different cafeteria table than me.

Kate is ready to harness the heat and do something crazy with it. She can’t wait to sit at the same table with her menopausal self, Laura Culberg and all of you.
