The time is upon us to welcome our blossoming teachers to the Community Class schedule. Through Om Factory's School of Yoga, 11 dedicated yoga students are taking their first steps into the seat of the teacher. These classes are offered by donation to make this practice more accessible to everyone.
For those who wish to deepen their studies in the realm of AcroYoga, the Lunar Immersion with Adam & Jennifer is coming up on March 10-14. This 5-day course focuses on the healing, relaxing and rejuvenating practices of Thai massage and therapeutic flying. Check out this video from last year's immersion.
On Thursday, March 15, we are hosting a multi-sensory, multimedia workshop experience interweaving Asana, music & Mantra presented by Gaura Vani & Kirtan Smith. They are sure to create space for an unforgettable journey straight to the heart of these sacred practices.
Finally, thanks to everyone for joining us for last month's launch party for Studio Arte. The whole evening was enchanting, and we were pleased to see so many friends.

AcroYoga Lunar Immersion: Rejuvenation Through Healing Arts with Adam Rinder & Jennifer Yarro
Tuition: $495 before Feb 14, $595 thereafter.
Please click here for more details
The Lunar Immersion focuses on the healing, relaxing and rejuvenating practices of Thai massage and therapeutic flying. The Lunar Asana Sequence teaches basic body mechanics and with a focus on self-love cultivation, in preparation for the dance of Thai massage. The techniques learned on the floor are then translated to the flying work, using the element of gravity to amplify the healing flow of prana (life force). Often, we will work in teams of three for safety and support, and everyone will have the opportunity to base and fly, heal and be healed. This training offers invaluable tools for yoga teachers, massage therapists, and energy workers who wish to develop a new dimension of healing touch for students or clients.
• Lunar Asana Sequence
• Thai massage in Supine, Prone, Side Lying, & Seated positions
• Forward, Backward & High Flying Whale Therapeutic Flying Sequences

Click here to register online for this workshop
Through a multimedia, multi-sensory exploration of Asana, music and Mantra, we will delve into the very texture of the Universe and explore how yoga Asanas can bring a greater understanding of our inner-connectedness and oneness with the Universe.
In this workshop, we witness the scope and evolution of the universe represented by the range of Asanas: from tiny insects to various species of animals and plants, great sages and warriors, all the way to the Gods. Through these Asanas, the wonders of the universe all gain representation. We will delve into the mythological symbolism of these postures, their significance in the great tales of Hindu mythology, and discuss their relationship in Hatha-Vinyasa Yoga to the energetic body.
