Autumnal Yoga Live Practice


When: Sunday, September 24, 2023. 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Where: Santa Cruz, CA, 95060

Join Alice for an live asana practice to honor this cozy time of year where we naturally begin to turn towards inward activities.

Inner Child Yoga


When: Saturday, June 10, 2023. 4:00 PM 6:00 PM

Where: Havenly Counseling Collective, 987 University Avenue, Los Gatos, CA, 95032

Cost: $35

Inside all of us lies a part of ourselves that sometimes inadvertently runs the show based on childhood experiences.

In this workshop, we will use the openness, depth, and connection yoga lends us to lovingly access our inner child. We will gently get to know them and what it is they are whispering (or screaming!) to us. This is an opportunity to listen and love them.

This work is useful in times of stress or anxiety, also to help break repetitive negative thought patterns. 

This workshop is open to all-levels of practice, unless you have physical therapeutic needs that would not be suited for a group practice.

If possible, please bring a photo of yourself as a youngster!

Learning to Listen – A Live Yoga Workshop


When: May 21, 2023, 10:00 AM

Where: 1001 Center Street, Santa Cruz CA

Cost: $40

We all have signals in our bodies that tell us when to slow down, when to rev things up, when to say no, and when to jump in and try. In this workshop we will explore through asana the triumph of listening intently to what is being keenly communicated and how not to bulldoze through it. We will also explore what may be fear and what may be a legitimate signal to say NO! All levels of practice with some previous yoga asana experience welcome. Expect a fun class of movement and contemplation.

All levels welcome, with some previous physical yoga practice. BYOP (bring your own props)
