“I have fallen in love with the Saturday yoga class...This class is the perfect way to start your weekend- peaceful, grateful, centered, and loosened up. The instructor Mary Beth is heaven sent! She really has a talent as a yoga instructor. She can get her class focused and in the zone in a matter of seconds, her commentary is uplifting! The class itself is the perfect balance of meditative and challenging. I cannot ask for anything more for this class.“ ~ MA

Winter Solstice: Seasonal Sun Salutes & Sound Bath

With Michelle Ayazi

December 18th – on the full moon

A HYBRID Workshop at Square One Yoga – either in-person OR virtual *

*We regret that Zoom is unable to effectively transmit the sound bath for an immersive experience, so this part will only take place in the studio for in-person participants.

In-person space is limited to 12 people . Sign up early to secure your spot! (Virtual is unlimited)

Let’s observe the change of seasons, the end of 2021, and the Full Moon with a ritual of practicing 108 Sun Salutations followed by a deeply relaxing sound bath.

Mary Beth will lead us through 12 sets of 9 sun salutation sequence variations—with modifications encouraged to suit your needs. Move with your breath and rest as you need to. The magic is in the transformational journey, not the destination.

After savasana, we’ll take a short break and then – for in-person participants only* – you will settle into a cozy restorative pose for a lovely 35-minute sound bath offered by Michelle. Let the soothing sound waves of an ocean wave drum, crystal singing bowls and Koshi chimes wash over and through you, ushering you into a state of deep relaxation and renewal as we prepare for the changing of seasons.

Intrigued but seems daunting?
See Online Learning below.

I’ve created 6 Weeks of Sun Salutes – Anytime – as a self-paced prep course you can start any time to help you learn about making your sun salutes very efficient and how to gain the stamina to do the whole 108 practice all together.

More Workshops Coming in 2022!

Here is what past participants have said about their experience:

The fact it was pre planned assured I participated during this time in my life. Mary Beth’s quiet embodiment as a basis for her teaching made it squarely land and stick. I learned some key things at a doable pace that I have incorporated into daily practice.

The most valuable aspect of this workshop was the “tone” that the instructor set & used. Very nurturing and emphasis on improving practice from where each student is.
