Special Extended Class! RESTORATIVE YOGA with David Schouela
Sunday, August 3, 4-6:30pm ~ Join yoga & meditation teacher David Schouela for a special extended restorative yoga class. Restorative yoga allows the nervous system to quiet and return to a balanced state, quieting the mind. At the same time the body gently stretches and opens, releasing chronic patterns of tension. And, as attention focuses on each breath, Restorative Yoga also cultivates the qualities of mindfulness and presence. Read more in David's recent article. $20 or class card + $5

MERIDIAN YOGA: Opening The Energetic Pathways* with Daniel Orlansky
Saturday, August 9, 12-7pm ~ Using gentle pressure, body weight, and skillful touch to open the body's energy pathways, we will work with a partner to increase our range of motion and perfect our alignment in yoga asanas associated with the fourteen meridians of Chinese medicine. A modern stretching method called resistance/PNF stretching will be taught, along with shiatsu and Thai Yoga massage. When we release the tensions that we store in our bodies, we experience a profound alignment of body, mind and soul. As nature's energy streams through us, the heart begins to sing and we become connected to the universal life force that bridges heaven and earth, sun and moon, and all of nature. Feel free to attend by yourself, or with a friend. $100, preregistration strongly recommended

Live Improv! An Evening With TRUE STORY THEATER
Saturday, August 9, 7:30pm ~ True Story Theater, an Arlington-based improvisational theater company, wants to hear about your life. The stories you share will magically be brought to life as we explore this important common theme.  Come celebrate our community, bring a friend, share a special story, or just watch, listen and enjoy! General admission $15 or class card at door ~ $10 for students/elders/low income ~ $20 for arts supporters

YOGA Rx: Ease Your Depression & Anxiety* with Liz Owen
A Workshop For Yoga Teachers & Therapeutic Practitioners
Sunday, August 10, 9:30am-12:30pm ~ In this workshop you will learn about the dynamics and practice of yoga as it relates to depression and anxiety, and you will take away an understanding of how to practice and teach asana and breathwork practices that are helpful for working with varying symptoms of depression and anxiety.

SHAMANIC JOURNEY CIRCLE with Comma Williams
Sunday, August 10, 7-9pm ~ Shamanic journeying is a tool that has been traditionally used by indigenous shamans for the healing of individuals and communities. Most commonly, shamans use drums and rattles to shift their consciousness into non-ordinary reality, a trance-like state, to communicate with their helping guides and spirits. We know now that anyone can learn to journey, to connect with their own helping guides and spirits in non-ordinary reality in order to get answers to personal questions, solve problems, open creativity, see new ways of being in the world and obtain healing information for themselves and their community. Join Comma Williams for this journey circle where we will travel into non-ordinary reality and ask for information to help us get clarity about our path for this coming year. $15 or class card
