Welcome Winter Solstice

December 19, 2019 • 6:30PM
with Rose & Carrie, Westlake Studio

Come celebrate the shortest and darkest day of the year with a specially themed all-levels yoga class at 6:30pm (with Carrie).  Then, participate with Rose in a special cleansing ceremony around our bonfire.  Traditionally, in ancient times, friends gathered, fires were lit and logs were burned to ashes to symbolize the return of the Earth's northern hemisphere towards the sun.  During our bonfire circle, we will incorporate the element of fire to set our intentions for the coming new year.  Spiced wine, cider and other spirits along with snacks will be served afterwards.
Please bring a warm coat and blanket to sit around the fire during our ceremony. Drop in or class passes apply.

Passages - Reflecting & Restoring into the New Year

December 31, 2019 • 9-10:30AM
with Rose, Westlake Studio

The transition from year to year is more than the simple turning of a calendar page.  Join Rose in Westlake on Tuesday, 12/31 at 9:00am for a 90-minute grateful farewell flow to all that has passed.

Then take the first step into a new year of second chances to help manifest 12 months of healing, opportunity and adventure.  We’ll move through a candlelit asana, sit for periods of quiet meditation/reflection and culminate with a deep, nourishing rest to close out what’s gone and welcome what’s to come.  Coffee, tea and homemade treats will be served afterwards.  

Drop in or class passes apply.
