FRIDAY 8/28 // 6 – 8pm 

Props are FUN! Workshop

Continuing Education and Advanced Practitioners

They’re not punishment! Learn how to use props in a fun and effective way that teaches students their benefits.


SATURDAY 8/29 // 9 – 11:30am 

Looking at Everyone’s Anatomy Workshop

Continuing Education and Advanced Practitioners

Every single student is different with a unique anatomy, strengths and challenges. We’ll take a look at common poses in different body types and how to adjust the poses specifically for each person. Developing a keen eye is key.

SATURDAY 8/29 // 2:30 – 5pm 

Practice Makes Progress Workshop

All Levels

An intensive look at how to distinguish a clear path to more advanced poses such as arm balances, inversions, and more complex backbends


SUNDAY 8/30 // 9 – 12pm 

Arm Balances Workshop

 All levels

No one should be left out in class when an arm balance is mentioned. We’ll look at a few of the most complex arm balances and break them down into smaller chunks that will become achievable as you practice them over time.

SUNDAY 8/30 // 2 – 4:30pm 

Hip Openers – Pigeon and WAY Beyond Workshop

All levels

Open hips mean much more than being able to do pigeon with ease. Open and strong hips make many of the most sought after poses possible. The hip is directly related to the health of the lower back making it an important joint to understand in yourself and in students. A joint with many different movements that can be affected by many different muscles make the hip complex. Time will be spent looking at the anatomy of the hip in lecture in a detailed but easy to understand. We will then look at all the different hip positions and where the limitations and weaknesses may occur as related to asana. By the end students will know how to work towards their goals in their hips wisely.


Individual Workshops – $60 each of registered by 8/1, $70 following

All 5 Workshops – $275 if registered by 8/1, $325 following

Welcome Winter: Vinyasa Yin Fusion with LIVE DRUMS

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 9.31.08 AMwith April Mueller and Jay on the Drums

Saturday, 12/20 from 1:15 – 3:15pm 

Join April Mueller and special guest, Jay On The Drums to rhythmically transition from Fall to Winter. As we move into the yin season of Winter, our bodies need more yin activities and movements to balance our yang energy.

We will begin by deeply grounding with thirty minutes of healing yin postures, which will be held for 3-5 minutes each with the support of bolsters and other props. The rhythm of live drumming will guide you through a warming 60-minute Vinyasa flow that will connect your body and mind through your breath. To end, we will slow back down with a few final yin postures before sinking into a nice, long Savasana.

$30 per person // Groupons are not valid for this workshop

Ready to launch your practice to a new level?  Get ready for “The Rocket!”

Larry Schultz, Ashtangi and yoga teacher to the Grateful Dead, created the Rocket Routines in the late 1960’s.  He modified the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa primary and intermediate series, with the goal of making these sequences more accessible to Western practitioners.

Grateful Dead songwriter and guitarist Bob Weir nicknamed the vibrant routine the “Rocket” because “it gets you there faster.”  The system is designed to renew vitality and energy.

The workshop is best-suited for Level 2 students, who are familiar with basic standing poses, backbends and are comfortable kicking to the wall when practicing inversions.  Modifications will be provided throughout the workshop to ensure the asanas are safe and accessible for all who attend.

Yoga Mat instructor Elizabeth Schubert recently completed a 100-hour Rocket training with “It’s Yoga” satellite in Thailand.


I practice yoga for a myriad of reasons, but can sum it up in just one: it makes everything in my life…better. I began my yoga adventure in college, armed with a VHS tape featuring Alan Finger. That video was later replaced with DVD’s of Rodney Yee and Sara Ivanhoe, but I didn’t attend a public class for years, embarrassed because I couldn’t touch my toes. It wasn’t until 2009, when I attended my first Vinyasa class in Rochester, NY, that I finally realized what I’d been missing.

A former TV reporter and anchor, I love to communicate, and I’ve found teaching to be a natural fit. As a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Instructor and graduate of the Yogaworks 200-hour teaching training program, I’m more than a little obsessed with anatomy and alignment. I’m not particularly flexible, and I don’t expect you to be either. I do expect you to come to class ready to work hard. My focus? To create challenging and safe classes that build strength and increase flexibility…all while making everyone sweat and smile. Come play!

11/9: Yin & Yoga Nidra Workshop with April Mueller

yoganidra1Sunday 11/9

2 – 4pm

Yin yoga is one of the most healing forms of yoga for the body, mind and soul. Unlike the muscular yang practice of most yoga classes today, Yin yoga poses are held for 3-5 minutes commonly seated or lying down, using props so that the muscles can soften and relax. This allows the deep connective tissue to open which can release emotional and/or physical scar tissue and trapped energy. Yoga Nidra, also known as yogic sleep or sleep with awareness, is a guided meditation that brings you to a state of consciousness between wake and sleep and full body relaxation. Join April to experience the physical, emotional and spiritual benefits of this beautiful combination of Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra. You will first be guided through a 90-minute themed Yin Yoga class that will relax and prepare your body and mind for a 30-minute Yoga Nidra guided meditation that will leave you feeling refreshed and revitalized yet still grounded.

$25 per person
