Come practice to the live sounds of David Levy’s Native American Flutes. David describes his improvisational music is not a performance but a prayer and invites you to join him and Julie through poem:
Come experience the creative sequences and spiritual energy of Julie Colton accompanied by the live music of handpan player, Dan Mulqueen. A percussionist of over 13 years and a trained musician, Dan picked up the handpan about six years ago and has mastered this instrument that was only developed in 2000. Strongly influenced by Eastern philosophy, his music is the perfect sound for your journey on the mat. Preregistration strongly recommended. Regular class price applies. Scroll down to sign up today or email us to use your class card.
Don’t forget to stay after for our 2nd Community Night & Vegan Potluck, right after Julie’s class, where Dan will play an informal concert!
What’s the handpan, you ask? Check out Dan’s video:
It’s no secret that prenatal yoga can be one of the best forms of exercise for mamas-to-be. Prenatal yoga can help pave the road for a more joyous pregnancy, a more confident labor & delivery and a better postpartum recovery. Join mom and certified yoga instructor, Cara Costello (RYT 200), every Sunday, starting March 22nd, for this 75 minute prenatal yoga class open to all levels. Each week, we will open the floor to discussion so that future mamas can share stories, concerns & ideas about topics related to pregnancy. After our discussion, we’ll explore breathing techniques and gentle prenatal poses for women new to yoga and we will even touch on some sequences for more experienced practitioners. Each class will end with restorative postures, meditation and final relaxation. Come to connect with your baby, your body and other mamas-to-be; join us as we build a prenatal community.
Cara Costello (RYT 200) specializes in hatha and prenatal yoga practice. Before life brought her to Red Hook in 2013, she taught yoga and ESL in Pittsburgh while completing her yoga teacher training with Joanne Vandenhengel at 3rd Street Yoga. In addition to experiencing prenatal yoga firsthand during the pregnancies of her two children, she also trained with prenatal instructors Mary Beth Kelly and Deena Blumenfeld.
A teacher by trade with over 10 years of ESL teaching experience, Cara brings to the mat a love of teaching combined with a passion for yoga. Cara has taught yoga to students aged 3 to 93, and she strongly believes that everyone has something to gain from this timeless craft. Each person’s journey with yoga is unique and she encourages students to find and celebrate their own practice.
This intensive workshop will focus on the anatomy of the 3 primary cores: the torso, hip & shoulder. You will learn how to use yoga asanas and short sequences to isolate these muscles and create more length and strength during your yoga practice. We will break up the class with sun salutes, asana sequences as well as anatomy of the core muscles for better understanding. This workshop is perfect for any yogi, from the newcomer to the experienced practitioner, who is interested in learning more about the core anatomy and its relation to yoga asana movement.
