Upcoming workshops in 2019


Sunday September 22nd.  Yoga to Support your immune system with Rose Alexander. 


All levels
Rose brings her skills as an Iyengar Yoga practitioner and teacher in New York to address how your practice can help support you as you enter into the Fall and Winter seasons. 
“The major function of the immune system is to protect the host from environmental damage.  This is done through the recognition of self and the response to the non-self.”  (Dr. Schultz KT, et al. Toxicol Pathol. 1987.)
We will follow a restorative sequence designed by BKS Iyengar to support and nourish your immune system.

Sunday October 20th: Ayurveda for Anxiety and Depression with Ami Jayaprada Hirschstein.  2-4pm.  $45.  All welcome.

Ayurveda is an ancient medical tradition from India that has been practiced there for 5000 years. The term is derived from the Sanskrit ayur, meaning “life” or “longevity,” and veda, meaning “knowledge” or “science.”

The concept of ayurveda is based on two major principles. The first principle is that the body and mind are interconnected, and the second principle is that the mind is powerful enough to heal the body. The body is cured of illnesses only when one’s awareness of the self expands.

This is Ami’s third visit to Clear Yoga.  Ami brings her knowledge, as an Counselor of Ayurvedic medicine to help us through the winter months by explaining and advising how diet, herbal supplements, and breath work can assist with specific conditions. 

Ayurveda & Yoga have clinically proven methods for alleviating depression and anxiety. This workshop is for anyone who would like to feel more peace and joy in their life. We will cover yoga poses for mood, diet and lifestyle, as well as simple tools to reduce stress while increasing motivation and vitality.

Sunday December 15th with Hugh Millard

2-5pm. Level 1/2 and up.  $50



Hugh is an exceptional teacher.  His attention to detail brings meaning to the words we use to describe actions.  He studied with Donald Moyer for a period of time, and more recently with Firooza Razvi.  Iyengar said that there are limits to what we know, but no limits to what we don’t know.  Hugh’s teaching helps us know a little bit more about ourselves, through understanding our most manifest being – our body.
