Friday, October 5th, 6:00PM - 7:30PM, Surrender Into Gomukhasana with Susie Beekman

Join Susie on a journey of surrender as we open into the peak pose of Gomukhasana.  Release expectations and preconceived notions as we step into the flow.  Practice relaxing and releasing into thoughtfully sequenced asanas to methodically open the compartments of our hips and shoulders.  These are common areas to hold tension, stress and pain.  Expect to work powerfully, but with an intention to surrender.  By surrendering into the opening we will relax muscles, experiencing greater depth and impairing a deep sense of calm.  Surrender... Let Go.  Six months of asana experience welcome.

Saturday, October 6th, 1:00PM - 2:30PM, Befriend Your Body:  Tending the Body and Mind When Challenged With An Autoimmune Disease with Linda Hiatt

At some point in our lives, many of us fall out of love with our birthday suits and begin to question and compare ourselves with others.  This can be especially challenging for those who live with chronic autoimmune diseases when the body actually begins to attack itself.   Even if we are not living with a chronic disease, self-love can be a daily battle.  Join us as we learn to follow our breath, listen to our body and cultivate loving awareness of our one-of-a-kind selves.  All levels welcome, no acute disease flares please.
