“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

I’m teaming up with Martina Pezzino of Balanced Beginnings Nutrition to offer this FREE workshop – a multi-generational chat for women of all ages
Invite your daughter, your mom, your cousin, your friend …
Join us as we share timeless wisdom about nutrition and movement that supports our bodies as we age.
Nutrition workshop, easy cook-along recipe demo, and yoga flow included.
Tap into the wisdom of yoga philosophy and the tenets of the sister science of Ayurveda to take your practice off the mat and into your life.
We’ll connect relevant principles from the Yoga Sutras with the basics of approaching our health through the makeup of our own dosha (vata, pita, kapha) so that we line up our nutrition and other daily life choices to fully support our personal goals.
In the Living Your Yoga workshop we broaden our sense of yoga so we can align our lifestyle to support our life force and enhance our overall sense of well-being.
This workshop is divided into three parts:
By living our yoga we expand our notion of this holistic practice.
How to Boost Nutrients in Any Dish
In this fun, cook-along workshop, you’ll learn how to boost nutrients and mindfully apply the power of “yum” to any dish.
Together we’ll prepare a few easy and versatile recipes that you can use to enhance a variety of meals and that work with any food philosophy (vegetarian, vegan, omnivore, etc.).
Be a healthy yogi cooking from The Yogi’s Pantry!
(When you register you’ll receive the ingredient list and pre-workshop prep instructions – so sign up early!)
Summer Solstice – June 19th
Sun Salutations are an age-old form of practice. Let’s observe the change of seasons with a ritual of practicing 108 sun salutations together.
I create a very accessible variation of this practice as I lead us through 12 sets of 9 sun salutation sequences. You move with your breath and rest as you need to and modifications are encouraged to address your needs.
The magic is in the journey, not the destination.
It’s a transformational form of practice, deeper than just doing asana. Anyone can do it. And yet it is very physical, so you need to prepare for it. (See Online Learning below.)

Special Summer Solstice Event
Sunday June 20th
8:15 – 9:15am Pacific
The fact that a quarter of all the bones in our body are in our feet and the highest concentration of nerve endings (over 200,000) are in each foot, our feet are an extremely receptive component of the body, and yet we tend to keep them muffled in shoes most of the time, which dims the consciousness that our feet can provide us as we propel ourselves through life – exercising, dancing, walking, etc..
Let’s remove our shoes and take an hour to work in our bare feet to focus on them, exercise them, stretch them, and connect from our feet to our whole body.
We will work on increasing flexibility and strength in our feet and use the placement of feet in common yoga poses to practice being present with our feet exploring how that affects the foundation for our whole body (and mind!)
Focusing on fit and healthy feet in turn creates healthy knees, healthy hips, healthy back, healthy shoulders, etc..
All in all, creating a more aligned relationship to our body from our feet up provides a refuge for the mind. A steadiness. Reliability. Confidence.
Let’s make the most out of being barefoot!
