Release Into RESTORATIVE YOGA* with Karen Barbarisi and Keith Herndon
Saturday, February 25, 2-4pm ~ Join Karen Barbarisi and Keith Herndon for an in-depth experience of Restorative Yoga - a therapeutic system that uses the comfortable support of cushions & blankets to nurture the body in various gentle, long held resting postures. Restorative Yoga allows the nervous system to completely quiet and return to a balanced state, quieting the mind. As attention focuses on each breath, Restorative Yoga also cultivates the qualities of mindfulness and presence. $35 or class card x 2 + $5 at the door

KIRTAN with Shubalananda plus special guests
Saturday, February 25, 7:30pm ~ Created by ancient Indian rishis from Vedic mantras, kirtan is a yoga of sound - an evening of beautiful music and heartfelt call-and-response singing. Freely offered ~ please make a donation!

Special Weekend Programs for Runners!
THE OTHER GAIT: Running for Everybody*
Advanced Training for Feldenkrais Practitioners with Jae Gruenke
Saturday, March 4, 12:30-6:30pm ~ Not just a sport, running is actually a fundamental human gait. But how can we reconcile this with the struggle the majority of runners face every time they go out for a run… and the reality that most adults who don't consider themselves "runners" rarely run or perhaps even can't? Through a combination of ATM and FI, this advanced training will look at the relationship between walking and running, what's needed to help a nonrunner reclaim the ability to run, and how this can also be used to help runners, even those at elite levels, fulfill their potential to run comfortably and enjoyably. Workshop enrollment includes a followup webinar in late April to discuss your experiences applying what you learned and answer your questions. $80 ($70 earlybird by Feb 13) ~ NE Regional Feldenkrais Guild members take an additional $5 off with discount code NORTHEAST. Attend Save Your Running on Sunday (see below) as well for just $25 (add this when you register) Register here!

HOW TO RUN: One-to-One Feldenkrais Lessons* with Jae Gruenke
Saturday, March 4: 8:30, 9:30, 10:30 am
Sunday, March 5: 3:00, 4:00, 5:00 pm ~
Discover what is working about how you run, what the underlying reasons for your problems are, and exactly what you need to do to improve. In your 60-minute individual lesson Jae will look at your running, help you understand what you're doing, guide you through a lesson that will set you on the path to improvement, and create a monthlong plan to help you keep improving. Includes one month of followup email coaching and support from Jae. $175 ($140 for practitioners and trainees, use discount code FELDY) Email jae@balancedrunner.com for more info or to schedule your appointment
