upcoming workshops in winter 2019
Location: 449 Nostrand Ave
Workshop I: Root Chakra
Sandi Preston, yoga teacher and co-founder of And Yoga Studios, and Hosanna Marshall, reiki practitioner and founder of The Open Series, lead a seven-part series that delves into the wisdom and insights stored within the seven chakras -- the energy centers that animate our body, hold the stories of our lives, and are instrumental in maintaining mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical balance. Each workshop focuses on one chakra, creating a vivid and open line of communication to that sacred space through yoga, visualization, storysculpting (writing + conversation), and reiki healing.
Please wear comfortable clothing.
Items to bring: yoga mat, journal, writing utensil.
Location: 449 Nostrand Ave
Lillian Stamey, dancer, movement therapist, and certified yoga teacher will guide you through the depths of “somatic” experiences, which is a form of body-centered therapy that uses creative movement as holistic healing. The guided flow of this workshop looks at the connection of mind and body to unlock creativity, compassion, and a greater sense of self through conscious movement.
Workshop will include:
Sharing/discussion of the theory and practice of somatic therapy
Guided flow: through movement of the body, participants will explore how to identify strengths and boundaries, find more ease and efficiency within the muscles and joints, and bring consciousness into the experience of one’s own body.
Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat.

Session 3: RELATIONsHIPS
Jessica Clemons,MD & Sandi Preston,RYT
From the moment we’re born, we yearn to connect. And as we make these connections we begin to feel that they define us. Validate us. Make us happy. But what if we accepted the thought that relationships are here to make us conscious instead of happy? Join Jessica Clemons, medical doctor and founder of the educational blog AskDrJess, and Sandi Preston, master yoga teacher and co-founder of And Yoga Studios, for a 2.5-hour transformational workshop that explores the depths of how we relate, with whom, and why.
The workshop involves light yoga. Please dress comfortably.
Session starts promptly at 4pm. Early arrival requested.
Space is limited, so early registration is strongly encouraged.
