Class: Fire up your Core! - LAWN #2
Ignite your tapas (inner fire). This dynamic, strength-building class, inspired by Baptiste Power Vinyasa & Ashtanga, flows through a set sequence with variations. Building off a firm foundation of Sun Salutations, you’ll move through the motions you most encounter in life like lifting, stretching, twisting and bending. Enjoy a renewed sense of vitality as you move from sweat to serenity. Because of the tempo of the class, prior experience is recommended.

Lecture: Mindfulness - Who has time? Presented by Dr. Krista Griffin
Do you feel stressed that there is just not enough time in the day? Then you need to attend this lecture. We will show you that incorporating Mindfulness into one’s life doesn’t have to take any extra effort or time. Join us for an experiential discussion on Mindfulness. We will discuss not only the basics but also the science behind the mental and physical benefits of mindfulness. We will learn and experience practical tools that you can incorporate into your life right away. Your peace of mind is only a breath away.

Dr. Krista Griffin, Minds Over Matter Co-Founder, is a Chiropractor and the owner of Lotus Chiropractic in Lewes. Throughout her 20-year career, Dr. Griffin has focused on understanding and tapping into the mind-body connection. Currently studying Functional Medicine, her method of treatment relies heavily on the body’s inherent ability to heal itself. Dr. Griffin guides her patients to access this power with hands-on work, through education and the principles of quantum physics. Her interest in mindfulness came through the realization that we ask children to sit still and pay attention but we have never actually taught them how to do so. Paying attention is a learned skill that many of us could use more training in.

You will be led through gentle yin poses to release blocks and open to receive all the good the universe has to offer. This style of practice, done slowly and safely, nourishes the natural range of motion of the joints. Chakras are a bridge between the physical and spiritual worlds by guiding our subtle energy through the body. This class will use deep breathing techniques in each pose in order to encourage focus and clearer awareness on each chakra from the base of the spine to the crown of the head.

Class: Come Fly with Me - Arm Balances - LAWN #2
For many yogis, arm balances can seem a little scary and completely unattainable. They do, in fact, require lots of core strength, balance and focus. But wait! Don’t write them off just yet! Remember, it's called a yoga "practice" for a reason. As with many aspects of yoga, the ability to nail arm balances will come with time, patience and, yes, practice, practice, practice. Here we’ll focus on just a few things that will lead you to adding arm balances into your own practice.

Lecture: Tired? Stressed? Heal your body, awaken your spirit! Presented by Kim Furtado, N.P.
Adrenal Fatigue is a stress-related condition that occurs when your adrenal glands, hypothalamus, and pituitary gland are functioning below their optimal level. It is typically the result of chronic physical or emotional stress. Adrenal Fatigue results in symptoms like a weakened immune system, low energy levels and an inability to handle stressful situations.
Chronic stress also affects our hormones and inflammation levels. How does your yoga practice deepen your body's physiologic healing process? What to do heal the adrenals, especially needed if you have chronic injury or limitations on the mat?
