Preregistration required.
Sat, Jan 28, 1pm-2pm Learning Through Injury: Discussion and Led Movement
Injuries are common. While many cases result in complete recovery and normal functioning, many people harbor residual pain and tightness long after an incident has occurred. This often develops into a self-limiting narrative displayed in avoidance and fear-based movement patterns. However, injuries also provide a unique learning opportunity to open one’s practice, explore one’s experience in a movement, and develop a deeper connection to the intelligence of the body.
This workshop seeks to expand on this optimistic outlook and offers suggestions for working with remnants of old and new injuries to strengthen the mind-body connection. Students will learn about what happens in the mind and body after an injury, while Nicole discusses ways to work with injuries to identify limiting patterns of thought and movement and improve overall function. Whether your injury is bothering you or not, this workshop will help you gain knowledge from your experience that you can incorporate into your yoga practice.
Mondays, 6pm-7:30pm: Winter Book Club – Lighter by Yung Pueblo Jan 30, Feb 27, Mar 27
The Yoga Garden PBO monthly book club is centered on spirituality & conscious living. Join them monthly for inspiration, discussion, community, and connection. They’re devoting their winter book club (Jan-March) to Lighter: Let Go of the Past, Connect with the Present, and Expand the Future by Yung Pueblo: “A radically compassionate plan for turning inward and lifting the heaviness that prevents us from healing ourselves and the world, from the New York Times bestselling author of Clarity & Connection.”
Donations gratefully accepted but not required. Please RSVP by registering on MindBody under Events & Workshops. There is a guided journal that accompanies the book with exercises and prompts based on the book’s teachings. This is a helpful tool for discussion but is completely optional. Much gratitude to Yoga Garden community member Stephanie Winegar for organization & facilitation.
Sat, Feb 4, 5pm-6:15pm Songs of Devotion with heart2heart
Prayerful singing and chanting is a natural human expression of spiritual love and joy, practiced throughout the ages, throughout the world. Please join the heart2heart team of Amy Durso, Sheila Fleming and Lolly Dunlap as they lead you in the uplifting and healing practice of devotional singing with mantras, prayers, words and sound (those who are familiar with the devotional singing ceremony known as Kirtan will recognize this format).

Fri, Feb 10, 6:30pm-8pm Sound Ceremony with Garth Robertson
Garth humbly offers Sound Ceremony. A modality that combines sound and ceremony for a deep and meaningful experience. Guided by instruments from around the world, each person that is present co-creates the special container that we all use as a collective pathway into our deeper selves and our collective healing.

Sun, Feb 19, 1pm-2pm Grief in Motion
Join Yoga Garden PBO and heart2heart as they cultivate specific practices that help you find ease in your bodies and minds. Your time together includes guided movements taken from the Kundalini yoga tradition, breath-work, stillness, and conversation, plus live music and sound.
Movements are tailored to support the strong emotions associated with grief that we undergo in the body and the mind. You will explore prescriptive breathwork, which you help us relax physically and mentally, as well as restore the relaxation response in your central nervous system, to counter the effects of hyperarousal that can be brought on by grief. This recalibration allows you to build new neural pathways to prevent your minds from falling into old patterns of physical and emotional pain. They will also include periods of stillness that allow for integration of the physical and emotional work. These sessions conclude with a voluntary opportunity to share for those who wish to do so.
