Peace, Love, Yoga: Christmas Day Yoga

A Winter Holiday Class

with Karen Macklin

holiday yogaWinter is a perfect time to turn inward, and explore a new level of depth in your practice. This annual two-hour class will help you stay grounded in your body and connected to your heart and highest self– today and throughout the season.


In this special practice, we’ll draw the energy down to the earth for stability, prepare the digestive fire (for holiday mealtime!), and open the heart center to let in feelings of peace, compassion, and connection.

We’ll end practice with a meditation on the chakras, and some sweet treats. What better way to start Christmas day?

$25 with preregistration on or before 12/24; $30 at the door, space permitting
