Summer is the season of maximum expansion and abundance, when Nature’s energy flourishes under the element of Fire. This season allows us to burn up underlying limitations there upon creating space for the seeds of intention sowed in Spring to burst forth into life. Join us as we balance this transformational energy of Summer and fully ripen your intentions allowing you to blossom open to your fullest sense of self.

Restorative yoga is a powerful and therapeutic practice that uses props to support the body combined with guided meditation to encourage stillness of the mind. Immerse yourself in this three-hour seasonal workshop experiencing a combination of gentle yoga poses, guided meditation, aromatherapy, hot stones, and healing hands-on assistance. During the practice, you will cultivate a deep sense of relaxation to soothe and cleanse your nervous system, boost your immune system and deepen mind/body awareness. Emerge with a sense of renewal and connection, better prepared to take on the challenges of the season.

Please dress in comfortable layers as you may feel chilly, even in a heated room. Hot tea provided after class.

Journey to Headstand

SunDate: 6/25/2017From: 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Journey to Headstand with Anne Gregory and Stephanie Zolna

Sirsasana, or Headstand, is the King of all Poses and offers a wide range of emotional and physical benefits including stress relief, improved circulation and digestion, and strengthening of the shoulders, arms and core.

Join us in this safe and supportive environment where we will strengthen body and mind to prepare you to turn your world upside down. We will explore different techniques for prepping, entering and holding different variations of headstand. This workshop is perfect for students at all stages in their journey, whether you’re ready to push past your fear and give it a shot for the first time or take this old, familiar friend to the next level.

Please note that it is not required for you to go upside down if you don’t (yet!) feel comfortable doing so - this workshop will give you the tools you need to build strength and stability within your body to help you access the pose when you feel ready.

Adrianna Webster

Adrianna's yoga journey began in 2007 when severe food allergies left her body weak and her mind exhausted. After taking a beginners yoga series with a local studio in her hometown of Brisbane, Australia, she suddenly realised, here was a practice that spoke to her body and soul. Regular practice not only strengthened her body, but reduced her stress and anxiety, and helped her develop new physical confidence.

In 2014, she and her sweetheart moved from Australia to San Francisco. Here, she has had the opportunity to deepen her practice by studying at Yoga Garden San Francisco with Laurie Sleep, Stacey Swan, Brooke Stokes, Jean Mazzei, Sean Feit, Karen Macklin, Cora Wen and Jon Isaacs; and recently started studying towards her 300 HR with the Yoga Well Institute under Chase Bossart.

Her teaching style is kind, funny and light-hearted with a focus on Hatha, Vinyasa and Gentle Flow. She has great respect for each person’s individual body and is passionate about enabling her students to find their inner yogi, strength and humour. Her teaching focuses on building long-term physical strength, learning kindness towards your own body, and having fun while hanging out upside-down in down dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana)
