Fall Cleanse and Rejuvenation

October 2nd from 12-3 pm and October 6th from 1-3 pm
$150 includes “Cleanse Kit”

A Fall Cleanse will help you release heat accumulated in the summer months. Just as the trees lose their leaves, it is a natural time for us to let go of whatever is not serving us. We will also take a closer look at supporting ourselves as the weather changes and becomes more rough and dry.

In this cleanse you will enjoy a lot of guidance and support. We will meet and go over the cleanse and how to cook the meals and teas. It’s always easier to cook something at home when you’ve helped to make it in class! You will also get a cleanse kit that will save you from running around to prepare for the cleanse. Mid-way through the cleanse we will meet to work and discuss our experiences, trouble-shoot and enjoy a yoga practice.

Cleanse Kit Includes:
Tongue Scraper, Triphala, Chyvanaprash, Cumin, Coriander, Fennel, Turmeric, Rice, Dahl, Almonds

Pre-registration is required. 48 hour notice is required for refunds.

Pittsburgh Pilgrimage to HI Mission Program

Join our Pittsburgh community as we travel together for this special seminar:

The Art of Meditation October 12-15, 2017

with Rolf Sovik, PsyD and Judy Moulton

Meditation, the essence of yoga, leads to deep and restful states of being. This weekend seminar is meant to explore the variety of dimensions of meditation—from body, to breathing, to mind. At the level of the physical self, it will help you find a quiet stillness. At the level of the breath, it will lead to an uncoupling from the tensions and negativity of daily life. At the level of mind, it will help you learn to rest in a quiet center of being.

This weekend is meant to help students whose meditation practice is in its beginning stages, or developing but not yet fully formed. More experienced students are welcome to come to reinforce their current practice.
