Saturday, October 21st – 11:30am – 1:30pm

Aerobic exercise is often engaged in as a method to burn calories, tone up and improve cardiovascular health. It is rare that one thinks about what all that huffing and puffing can do for the brain. Physical Activity helps the brain function at its very best. Why does that matter? …because your brain controls EVERYTHING!!!
This workshop will explore a large variety of both the instantaneous and long term “brain benefits” one receives from aerobic activity. Jenna Stacey (BKin) will begin the session by leading you through a 60 minute endorphin boosting spin class and then once your brain has been prepped to learn, discuss how to use exercise to improve your IQ, memory, and reduce the damaging effects of stress. A large part of this interactive group conversation will focus on mental health and how aerobic exercise can aid in the prevention and treatment of depression and anxiety.

Flow into Fall – Yoga and ritual for the changing seasons

With Mackenzie Dancho

Saturday, September 23rd – 2:00pm – 4:00pm

As we move into autumn, the days start to get shorter, a chill creeps into the air, and the leaves fall to the ground.  A shift happens in nature, and that shift affects our bodies and our minds.

During the change of seasons, we can start to feel a little unsettled, anxious, stressed, and out of balance.  This workshop will combine teachings from yoga and Ayurveda to help you establish a self-care ritual that will keep you feeling balanced, grounded, and calm and we flow deeper into fall.

Think grounding yoga poses, tea and healthy comfort food ideas, an introduction to Ayurveda and a sweet, calming meditation.

Yoga Mat
Water Bottle
Journal and Pen if you wish to take notes!
