JAN 1    New Year’s SANKALPA:
                Guided Meditation, Yoga, and 
                Deep Resolution-Setting — 
                a mini-retreat . $40
                11 am-2:30 pm
SANKALPA . SETTING RESOLVE — For those who want to start their new year in contemplation for meaningful intention-setting. Starting with a guided/silent meditation we ask ourselves the questions needed, to find our one most meaningful resolution, for the year. Followed by any writing of thoughts / questions / intentions arising from the meditation. Moving into 45-60 minutes of accessible yoga, stretch and flow, tapering into restorative yoga. A silent break with tea, snacks and personal thought/contemplation. Closing with a long deep yoga nidra to create space for answers and intention to arise, and set more deeply. We will take home the awareness, space and contemplation of the session, and our own stickers for around the house and car, to surprise and gently remind ourselves and perhaps others of what we hoped for from the year.

                                  7-8:15 AM

The Book of Joy is by The Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. 
It is a wonderful book. Two of the world's wisest, most compassionate humans feel the true and deepest purpose of each of our lives is to find, and live in, real and lasting joy. This book is a joyful discussion and guide to doing that.

We will listen together in a casual setting — lying, sitting, meditating, mindfully moving to partake in tea/coffee and/or a light breakfast. Then we will learn, and do, the Joy Practices they offer.

Please register for the whole 12-day course at wallymaltz@mac.com. $120 includes daily light breakfast. I am very excited to offer this 12-day course and hope for a minimum of 10 participants.

JUL 17-21 . Absolute Beginners — 
A 5-Day Intro to Yoga . SU-FR . 7:30-9  pm

Never done, or pretty new to, yoga? These five consecutive evenings put together in one week what we more or less cover over six weeks of just one day a week. A great way to get a good taste of yoga and a good introductory foundation. A great review, stretch and detailing for those repeating or even slightly beyond absolute beginner, with the added bonus of the strengthening and lengthening that comes from six days in a row. If you’ve been putting off trying yoga, or fallen off the beginner wagon, this’ll be a lovely opportunity to climb on board. It’s always a treat to work in a group like this, so wait no longer. $60 

JUL 24-28 . 5 Days Experienced Beginner . MO-FR . 5:30-7 pm
Five consecutive evenings of yoga stretch, detailing and flow based on the primary series of breath-based Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga — and lots of fun and exploration of the principles of energy and alignment it illuminates – with the bonus of the strength and length that comes from 6 days in a row. If you’ve put off trying yoga, or fallen off the yoga wagon, this is a lovely opportunity to climb on board. It’s always a treat to work in a group like this, so wait no longer. $60
 
JUL 24-28 . 5 Days Hips Hams Core
MO-FR . 7:30-9 pm
Open Sesame. That’s what you’ll be saying after 5 days of Hips, Hams ... and let’s toss in some Core. Ssssssshtrong! $60

TBA . Lunch Yoga at Miles Canyon
JULY 12:15-1:15 / 30 pm
On the bench of land overlooking the Yukon River, just across the footbridge and hang a right. Yoga beside the river is truly lovely. If you have the time, bring your lunch and stay afterwards. Oh, and bring your mat, if you have one.
