Moving the Spirit: Dance the 5Rhythms Series – 2nd & 4th Saturdays In September & October | 7:30-9:30pm

Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms® are coming back to the city for the first time in four years! Join Richard Jerram for this 4-part series on the 5Rhythms. Come for all four, or just for one!

The 5Rhythms® of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness are different ways of moving that embody different ways of being in the world. Together, they form ‘The Wave’ – a simple practice that encourages us to find our own unique dance. Come and explore different ways of moving and embodying feeling, and discover yourself at your most fluid and creative level. There are no steps to learn and these classes for anyone, regardless of age, fitness, or ability. Newcomers and old-timers equally welcome!

Richard Jerram brings heart, humor, and 14 years experience of weaving demonstrations and exercises into a field of movement and evoking the Rhythms in each dancer through an eclectic blend of music. Join Richard in this simple and profound movement practice where we meet to move, to find ourselves at our most fluid and creative level, and to dance into life.

Places are limited. We strongly recommend that you pre-book to avoid disappointment! Please bring water & clothing in layers to accommodate movement & stillness. Dance shoes or barefeet only, please (please no street shoes or socks).

Personal Investment: $60 for 4 Sessions, $20 per Session

When: Saturdays, September 13th & 27th, and October 11th & 25th | 7:30-9:30pm

Forrest Yoga Workshop with Abby Dobbs – Sunday, October 5th | 1:45-3:45pm

Forrest Yoga Workshop with Abby Dobbs – Sunday, October 5th | 1:45-3:45pm

Curious about Forrest Yoga? Join Abby for a 2-Hour practice to delve deeper into this fiery style of yoga. This workshop will focus on the Forrest Yoga methodology behind hip opening – how to utilize the foundational principles of Forrest Yoga to deliberately, safely, and joyously move into the hips. As the deepest and most stable joint in the body, the hips tend to be tight – and our lifestyle of sitting doesn’t help!
Expect to explore postures like pigeon, eka pada sirsasana (head-to-ankle), gomukhasana (knee pile), and other juicy hip openers. Also, Abby will utilize her background as a massage therapist to share some knowledge of anatomy – what major muscles & muscle groups we’ll be working on opening.

Bring yourself and a willingness to dive into deep opening in the physical and energetic body. This class is for practitioners familiar with yoga – experience in Forrest is recommended but not necessary!

Personal Investment: $20 preregistration, $25 at the door

A Night of Healing: Yoga & Guitar for Stress, Anxiety, & Insomnia – Sunday, November 16th | 7:00-8:30pm

A Night of Healing: Yoga & Guitar for Stress, Anxiety, & Insomnia – Sunday, November 16th | 7:00-8:30pm

What better way to melt away tension than to practice gentle movement and breath, yoga nidra (guided meditation), and restorative poses to the soft strumming of a guitar? Allow yoga teachers Ayelet Krieger and Dan Kapner to sooth your nervous system and lead you to a state of deep tranquility.

About Dan: Dan was first introduced to yoga at 14 when his family physician prescribed three poses daily for upper back pain. A decade later, while working as a speechwriter at the UN, Dan found a regular asana practice as the perfect antidote to the busy professional life. Yoga, he learned, could encourage deep relaxation and a sense of groundedness, improve strength and stamina, and become a channel for positive living. As an RYT200 hour instructor, Dan invites students to explore yoga as a moving meditation, a linkage of movement with steady and smooth breath, to enhance these benefits. As a guitarist since age 12 with some classical training, Dan also infuses live music into his classes to help his students achieve deeper relaxation. When not on the mat, Dan practices law focusing on resolving complex construction disputes. He holds a juris doctor and a masters degree in international relations.

About Ayelet: As a yogini who has been practicing for nearly a decade, Ayelet brings great love of yoga and a deep knowledge of its teachings to her students. In line with YogaWorks, where Ayelet earned her 200-hour teacher certification, her classes fuse the heat of Ashtanga with the safe alignment of Iyengar. She is also a Level I certified iRest Yoga Nidra teacher through the Integrative Restoration Institute. When not on her mat, Ayelet is pursuing a doctorate in psychology (PsyD) at George Washington University. In the past she has worked with victims of abuse, trauma survivors, substance users, and newly diagnosed breast cancer patients. Ayelet’s work in psychology complements her yoga teachings, as she is interested in nurturing the relationship between heart, body, and mind ~ exploring how each can help to heal the other.
