Nick's Summer Theme: Earth Practices

muladhara

Yoga study begins with the root of our human experience - the physical body.  This summer, Nick will use yoga and meditation to explore the unique intelligence and power of our many bodily selves: bones, muscles, organs, glands, fluids.  We will contemplate the different histories that dwell in our flesh - personal, cultural, biological, cosmological.  Topics may include experiential anatomy education, freeing our posture from "do's and don'ts", evolutionary and developmental biology, the dialogue between effort and surrender, the lost art of relaxation, and what "cleansing" really means.  Learn more about our year-long syllabus here.

Yoga is a priceless investment in your long-term happiness.
You leave each class feeling more at ease in your body,
less bothered by stress, and more present to joy.

accepts you and supports your desire to grow.
Our highly-trained teachers will safely challenge and inspire you.

This humble studio can be your urban sanctuary -
the place you come to remember who you are
and who you want to become.
