5:30 pm6:45 pm

When Ashby Underwood first discovered Yoga in her 20′s, she was challenged by the discomfort and limits in her own body and lack of flexibility. Her 18 year journey in the study and practice of Hatha Yoga has now completely opened the way she sees life and graceful dying. The richness of a yoga practice is in the symbols, language, and imagery which give us a new way to map and understand the terrain of the body. Seeing our own anatomy and physiology, this “gross body”, as a work of art can help anyone develop a healing direction for many common disease trends.
Short discussion, experiential breath-work and movement. Street clothes OK.
Some chairs and cushions provided. Bring a mat or ground-cover to sit on the terrace. Come prepared to learn and relax!

Nutritive Fats are essential to a healthy diet. Since our culture is recovering from a “low-fat” epidemic, we can learn from the traditional foods and uses of fat in an Ayurvedic diet, as fats were considered both good and necessary for flexibility and clear thinking.

We will look at the basic science of fat and digestion, and which fats to use cosmetically and internally, and why. We will discuss seasonal health care as well. Participants will have an opportunity to order the highest quality oils after the workshop.

Join Ashby for an afternoon exploring beautiful fats. Reserve a space today.

NEW STUDENTS
  • Welcome to Yoga Highlands!  Our teachers are dedicated to the practice of yoga, to support healthy union of body, mind, and spirit.  You do not need yoga experience to join our classes.  Please note the times for Yoga Foundations and Hatha Level 1-2.  We recommend that new students get familiar with the basics of alignment and safety before advancing on to more challenging, faster-paced classes.
  • Please arrive to the studio at least 15 minutes before your first class.
  • Safety is our primary goal.  Inform your teacher of any injuries or health conditions that you are aware may affect your full participation in physical activity.  We will ask you to complete a short intake form to learn more about your health goals.  Always check with your physician if you have concerns.  We are happy to discuss the health benefits and scope of yoga with your practitioner.
  • We provide yoga mats for you to borrow, and then suggest that you purchase your personal mat as you progress.  We have mats for purchase or can help you explore the many offerings online for yoga mats, props, and gear.  We recommend creating a space at home for your yoga practice!
PRACTICE NOTES
  • Plan to come with an empty stomach (2hrs after eating), an open mind, and wear non-binding comfortable clothing.
  • Be mindful of not wearing strong scents to class, such as perfumes, scented lotions, or cigarette smoke.
  • Please remove your shoes and turn off cell phones when you enter the space.
  • There are extra yoga mats to borrow for class but we suggest you eventually purchase your own.
  • Parking at the studio is ample and the Banks across the street have additional space on Saturdays.
  • Be on time to class! Come around 15 minutes early for your first class.
