Saturday, April 13th | 5:30-7:30pm
After the delicious experience of their Winter Bliss workshop, Skye and Danielle are teaming up again to offer you another evening of rejuvenating restorative yoga coupled with Thai massage. Welcome spring with vitality and calm in restorative yoga postures that allow the body and mind to relax with the support of props and intelligent sequencing. Melt into stillness and balance the body’s stagnant winter energy with the lightness of spring using Thai massage in each posture. This type of bodywork, different from classical Swedish or deep tissue, is not meant to manipulate the muscles, but to work the energy from the feet to the crown of the head using the palms of the hands. Assists are completely optional and may include gentle stretching, muscle compression, and rocking to increase flexibility and relieve tension.
This workshop is limited to 10 participants.
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged.

Levitation 101: Foundation and Finesse for Yoga Inversions

A53487F7-08B9-4BFC-9CEA-A8969A40096B

Sunday, April 28th | 2-4pm | Honor Movement Studio | 502 Stevens Ave, Portland

WARNING: Euphoria alert! That’s just one benefit of turning your body upside down! Have you been interested to try inversions but haven’t yet had the opportunity in class? Join Danielle + learn how to use the bandhas (yogic body “locks”) to stabilize the body, find proper alignment to avoid injury, and know the benefits to spending some time with your head below your heart. Danielle has been teaching safe, alignment based yoga for the past 12 years and has taught countless students how to safely invert. This workshop is for all levels, but students will take away more if they have some prior yoga experience. Students with any neck and shoulder injury should speak with the instructor beforehand.

Preregistration encouraged: $30 ($15 for Honor Insiders)

Birds and Bugs: Yoga with Wings!

IMG_0462

Saturday, May 11th | 12:30-2:30pm

Danielle brings the nature to you!  Do you know how many postures are named for birds and bugs?  Well- a lot! In this workshop, we will explore postures like pigeon, heron, and eagle.  On the more active side, we’ll move into variations of crow & crane, firefly, and perhaps scorpion, if we’re feeling sassy. Surprises in store as well, and requests will be taken!  The postures will be matched with the insightful stories behind each one, and there will be variations for every level of yoga practitioner to try.  This is time to slow it down, and work on details with time to explore. Emphasis is on meeting students where they are, to advance their understanding in their own time. Process oriented to support a playful space.

This workshop is suited for all levels, recognizing that there will be both beginner, intermediate, and advanced options offered.

Pre-registration is encouraged: $25 in advance $30 day-of
