Back Care Basics ~ A 6 Week Series
Back pain isn’t as mysterious as you might think and knowing how to remedy it can be simple once you understand the basics.
Through Viniyoga, a therapeutic style of yoga that prioritizes the health of the spine and safe sequencing, this 6 week series will give you the tools and knowledge you need to take care of your back on a regular basis, whether in your home practice or in yoga class. In our focused 60 minute class, twice a week, your upper, mid, lower back and hips will be gently nourished and stabilized. You will notice a difference after just a couple of weeks – your back will feel better!
Please join Kelly Valenzuela to learn more about the Viniyoga basics of back care and how you can care for the health and well-being of your spine today and every day.
Beginners are welcome! This series is appropriate for all levels. Sign up here.
Date: Tuesdays & Thursdays, April 24th – May 31st, 7:00 – 8:00am

Free Reiki Share
Reiki means Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy
A Reiki Share is filled with loving-kindness, joy and compassion.
Anyone can join the Reiki Share; practitioners of all lineages, school and levels, and anyone who is interested in coming, you don’t have to be a Reiki Practitioner to participate. All that is needed is curiosity, an open mind and open heart to receive and share loving-kindness energy.
During the share everyone has the opportunity to receive & give Reiki Energy Healing. The sessions usually run about 15-20 minutes per person to allow everyone to receive hands-on healing. Reiki can be used for any malady.
Bring a water bottle and layers. The energy shifts during energy healing and you may find yourself cool one minute and very warm the next.
Come as you are!
Mindfulness for Teens
Teens today are faced with many challenges, including an ever increasing pace of life, technology, and input of information. This makes it even more necessary to offer tools that enable these youth to choose how they meet that full spectrum of challenges.
Mindfulness, with its emphasis on present-moment awareness, can be among the most useful of those tools. By first calming the nervous system, we give the mind and body an opportunity to slow down and reconnect to the breath. This pause can give teens greater clarity and access to a wider range of responses available when they are faced with difficulties.
In this workshop we will use Mindfulness-Based practices such as mindful movement and meditation, paired with discussion that encourages curiosity about their experiences. Participants will learn techniques that they can then use to cope with stress in their everyday lives.
Introduction to Meditation and Mindfulness
Join Anne Arntson for this 3 hour workshop. You will be introduced to the key concepts of mindfulness and meditation, the scientific research that underpins them and how this relates to managing stress, health and wellbeing.
Discussion is interspersed with guided meditations and simple, practical methods that you can take away and start using immediately.
This introductory workshop is a good way to begin a meditation practice and bring more presence to your life.
You will receive a follow-up email with links to audio and written resources as well as be invited to a follow-up session.
