Intro to Yoga with Annie
5-week series | Tuesdays | 9/12 - 10/10 | 7:30-9 pm | $108 | Register
Take the first steps into yoga in a safe and supportive environment. Class size is limited so each student receives personal attention. In five weekly classes, students are introduced to the history and present day forms of yoga, while learning basic asana (poses) that strengthen and stretch.
Mindfulness Meditation with Rajiv
6-week series | Mondays | 8/28 - 10/90 (no class 9/4) | 7:30-9 pm | $150 - series (no drop-ins) | Register
Workshop will emphasize cultivating loving awarenss in a nonjudgmental way, to develop the witness within, so we can tap into our innate wakefulness. Through seated and walking meditation, yogic breathing, Q&A and dharma talk, we will investigate the nature of our minds.
Yin Yoga and Meditation with Shannon
Sundays | 9/3 | 5:30-7pm | Register
A restorative practice of long held postures with support to relax the body/mind. Followed by a led meditation practice (reclining or sitting options). A deeply nourishing practice for all levels.
Monthly Restorative Yoga with Annie
In restorative yoga we use props (bolsters, blocks, straps, and blankets) to support the body in long held positions. Holding poses for longer allows a deeper opening and internal massage of our organs and fascia. Postures are adapted to student's ability. Ease and relaxation are an important part of the practice.
Monthly Yoga Nidra with Rainey
Sundays | 8/27, 9/24, 10/22, 11/12, 12/17 | 5:30-7 pm | Register
Yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) is a nourishing practice designed to cultivate the resiliency of your nervous system and offer deep relaxation to all levels of your being. Class opens with gentle fluid movement and concludes with a long guided relaxation.
Gong Bath with Wayne Marto
Thursday | 9/7 (more dates coming) | 7-8:30 pm | Register
The gong is delicately played, deeply bathing every cell of the body in pure, penetrating sound waves, cleansing the subconscious and awakening the practitioner to a transcendent state of awareness. The experience is effortless and the results profound.
Feldenkrais Basics with Rachel Hamstra
Mondays | 10/16-11/6 | 7:30-8:30 pm | Register
Discover how body awareness can change how you move and keep you out of pain. Questions about your sensory experience help guide your attention through small, gentle movements to increase your awareness of how your body responds to each movement, so you can discover and clarify connections within yourself. Bring your curiosity and learn how to move with more ease.

Join Annie and Wendy for a winter retreat to the tranquil village of Yelapa, Mexico. Just a 45 minute boat ride south of Puerto Vallarta, Yelapa is nestled around a pristine bay, surrounded by sandy beaches and lush tropical mountains – a complete departure from the hectic pace of a typical Mexican tourist town. This week long retreat will provide you with the opportunity to connect to the earth, to the sea, to nature’s rhythms, to the village community, and to yourself.
Join Annie and Wendy on this fabulous and far-reaching travel adventure to Kerala, the southern most state in India.
We will visit the ancient spice trade port city of Kochi, a high mountain tea plantation, and enjoy a biodynamic farmstay where we will see and taste many of the spices and ayurvedic herbs grown in this natural resource-rich area of southern India. We end the journey close to the coast where we enjoy a special day-long houseboat journey on the inland waters, visit several Hindu temples and enjoy the warm beaches of the Indian ocean. Each day we will have time to practice yoga and meditation, both with Annie and local yoga teachers.
For a more detailed description of the trip ininerary visit Ponte Travels, co-owned by Two Dogger, Marta Rabins.

I was less than enthusiastic when I remembered my wife and I had signed up to take a couples massage workshop. My attitude quickly changed during the workshop with Annie. The entire experience was informative, enjoyable and rejuvenating. Annie’s instruction was clear, and the techniques she demonstrated and taught immediately brought ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ as we practiced on one another. The time flew by. I left with more confidence in my ability to effectively massage my wife as well as a newly relaxed and energized body.
