Loving In The Anthropocene: A Polypore Inspired Workshop On Queering Concepts Of Polyamory & Love Special Event

Loving In The Anthropocene: A Polypore Inspired Workshop On Queering Concepts Of Polyamory & Love $ 4 0 – $ 1 0 0 ( N O T A ) Pre-Registration available soon! $20 deposit required to secure your space Anthropocene (/ˈanTHrəpəˌsēn/) adjective: relating to or denoting the current geological age, viewed as the period during which human activity has been the dominant influence on climate and the environment. Too much of our human relationships to each other and our planet has been characterized by late capitalism’s drive toward consumption, disposability, and manufactured scarcity. The end result? An apocalyptic impact on humans and our more than human kin! This culture of scarcity and disposability has shaped every aspect of our lives, including the fundamentals of how we relate to and love one another, imposing narrow visions of what is possible in human and more than human relationships. We believe that loving in the Anthropocene is so much richer than the limited models of romantic love that we are given: we have vibrant loverships, friendships, movement collaborations, and all of these are expressions of love! Between and beyond our human love connections live rich complex ecosystems and ecologies: In this workshop we’ll explore the blessings and pitfalls in how we shape our connection with lovers, friends & collaborators. We’ll listen & expand our love into the learnings of our fungal kin through focusing on the beloved polypore Reishi, a deeply heart nourishing ally! Join us for an afternoon of hands-on exploration, embodied rituals and practices for loving, and making medicine!

About the teacher
Jaclyn completed her yoga teacher training in the Fall of 2016 and starting volunteering with Exhale to Inhale in 2018. Jaclyn has a passion to combine yoga with her full time work as a Social Worker. A few years into her practice, she began to see that yoga is much deeper than a physical practice. Yoga is the practice of connecting and staying present with the breath. Jaclyn has been through her own healing process and used yoga as a main tool of recovery. The breath helped Jaclyn unite and balance her mind and body. She learned to stay present on her mat and carry that into her every day life. Jaclyn holds a safe space within her yoga classes for each individual to continue on their personal journey of self care and self discovery.

New Moon Renewal with Nicolette Dixon Special Event
with Nicolette Dixon
90.00 minutes
$32.00
New Moon Renewal with Nicolette Dixon $20 - $45, sliding scale The new moon is a time for drawing inward to bask in our quiet darkness. From this place of intuition we can plant seeds. We look forward to the next growing cycle. The moon teaches us the constancy of cycles. By aligning ourselves with its changes, we are reminded of our own power for renewal. In this workshop, we’ll learn the astrological significance of each new moon based on its position that month (March 8th New Moon in Pisces, May 3rd New Moon in Taurus, May 31st New Moon in Cancer, June 28th New Moon in Leo). We’ll craft achievable intentions for the lunar cycle. We’ll deepen our mind-body connection through breath, movement, and self guided movement. Reflecting on celestial action invites you to root yourself as a participant in the natural world while engaging in community. $20 - $45 sliding scale *

From mommies to daddies, aunties, nannies, and grannies, any caregivers of all ages are welcome. “Infants" class is for babies who are 6 weeks through pushing back on the belly.

Special attention is paid to tummy time and helping babies develop the foundation of a strong and healthy relationship of limbs to spine for future postural support and cognitive development. All activities emphasize the baby-caregiver bond, and attention is paid to supporting self-care for caregivers’ stressed minds and bodies.
About the teacher
I started practicing yoga whilst looking a better to maintain my body for my work as a modern dancer. Though I have not always as enthusiastic about yoga as I am currently, I found my real love when I began to study Vinyasa. The linking of breath with a flowing practice really hit home with me, so these are the two main anchors for both my personal practice and my teaching. I completed my Viinyasa 200hr certification in 2011 (Yoga to the People, NYC), and set forth on my teaching journey. I decided to quit my full-time 9-5 in 2012 to pursue dance and yoga more fully; while unemployed I had more time to discover different styles of yoga, AcroYoga and Aerial Yoga being amongst those. From 2012 to 2014, I lived and breathed teacher trainings (TTs), completing my Kid's Yoga TT (Alphabet Asana), my Aerial Mellow Flow TT (Om Factory), my Restorative Yoga TT (Mary Aranas), and my Aerial Yoga TT (Om Factory). During this time I was also slowly, but surely, expanding my AcroYoga practice and assisting various teachers (Adam Rinder, LInda Mittel, Mary Aranas). This past December (2015) I finally took the plunge and completed my AcroYoga TT with AcroYoga Montréal (Yay!) My adult classes center on linking breath and movement (however slow that movement may be), and on the importance of safe alignment, plus mindful progression with self-awareness. My dancer's heart in body is also in love with flow and movement exploration, so get ready to feel the influences of Pilates, Feldenkrais, Body-Mind Centering, and whatever else I'm physically processing at the moment. For my AcroYoga classes I strive focus on all of these things, plus fostering a sense of community with others. My Kid's class focus on giving my students the foundation to be life-long lovers of yoga, via exposure to asana (poses), breathwork as a tool for stress control, and structured creative play :) For all of the styles I teach, I firmly believes in a “safety first” approach; when we take care of the body, it will take care of us!

BROWN SUGAR: Yoga for Folks of Color Special Event
with Calia Marshall
120.00 minutes
$33.00
$20 - $45 Sliding Scale No one turned away for lack of funds (NOTA) What: Brown Sugar is a healing space. It's a space where people of color can move, breathe and circle together as we explore mindfulness practices and celebrate our diverse community. Brown Sugar is a body-positive, queer friendly space. How: We begin and end each class in a circle where we can share and reflect upon our experiences. As we move through the yoga postures with awareness, healthy alignment, and a focus on the breath, we begin to attune to our own and our collective wisdom. Why: Because folks of color need a healing space where they don't have to worry about being "othered". Because racism exists, within the world and within the yoga community. Because people of color are hugely underrepresented in yoga studios, so we're letting it be known that there's a space there for us too. Who: Taught by an experienced POC teacher, the magic of this class is created by the energy of each person who enters this sacred space. All experience levels, sizes, abilities, genders, and ages are welcome. www.brownsugaryoga.com
About the teacher
Calia Marshall first encountered yoga as a college gym class and hated it. Soon after, she was introduced to a teacher who chanted and spoke about yoga philosophy- then she was hooked. Calia received her 200 training at Laughing Lotus Yoga Center in 2002 and has since taken trainings with Johnathan FitzGordon and Alison West in alignment and back care health. She is currently studying with Saul David Raye for her 500 hour certification, steeping herself in the practice of Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of love and devotion. Calia is also a member of Kirtan Soul Revival, a funky NYC band who shares mantra music. Calia’s objective is to create experiences where students can heal, transform themselves from the inside out, and deepen their connection to breath, body and spirit. She strives to create a safe space for people of all genders, races, abilities and sizes to practice yoga in a supportive environment. As a teacher, Calia is playful, thoughtful, and open-hearted. Her practice of Bhakti yoga and kirtan, dance, and Reiki greatly inform her teaching. Through a mix of vinyasa, pranayama, restorative, chanting, and yogic philosophy, she balances flow, prana-centered movement, and healthy alignment to help students move through physical and emotional challenges and to attune to their own wisdom. www.caliamarshall.com www.kirtansoulrevival.com
