Kid’s Finger Knitting 

Sunday July 18th 1:00pm

Finger knitting is a form of knitting where a cord is created using only hands and fingers, instead of knitting needles. It is an excellent way to introduce young children to the concept of knitting and prepare them using knitting needles later on. Finger knitting creates a thin cord, 4 stitches wide (one stitch for each finger except the thumb) that kids can turn into a bracelet, necklace or decorative rope.

ASHTANGA YOGA 101

with L2 AUTHORIZED TEACHER LARA LAND

$30

(Pre-Registration is required as space it limited )

In this workshop you will delve deep into the history, philosophy, and practice of Ashtanga Yoga. We begin by telling the story of the journey of yoga from east to west and and the way the practice has adapted and stayed the same. Next we look at the tristhana (three central focal points) of the Ashtanga practice: breath, gaze, and posture and how they are supported by the Mula and Uddiyana Bandhas (locks in the body). Students will have a chance to feel these in the body as experience both the Mysore and Led Ashtanga systems. Lara will breakdown the sequencing and the vinyasa flow between poses. Students learn basic Sanskrit, the Ashtanga chant, and have a look at the word Ashtanga and all of Patanjai’s eight limbs.
