myth, mantra, maha: a practice advancing series

led by lara ederer

$25 per session

9-11a sat. \\ 3/31, 4/28, 5/19, 6/9

Please join us for ′Myths, Mantras, and Maha,′ a 2 hour practice advancing class series at Ritual House.

3/31: inversions 4/28: folds + bends​

5/19: twists + binds​​ ​ 6/9: arm balances​

Maha means ‘great’ in Sanskrit; in each of the 4 workshops Lara will sequence around a related family of poses to reach a peak “maha” pose, will share the mythology of the peak pose/s, and will incorporate mantra in call and response style chanting that links the three together.

The workshops’ content compliments each other when practiced all four together, but can also be attended individually. These workshops are designed to advance your current asana practice. A regular asana practice and general understanding of foundational yoga poses is required. email us if you have any questions!

up first: inversions​, sat. 3/31

In this workshop we will take a closer look at the Sanskrit meaning, methodology, and foundational physical components of inversions including Pincha Mayurasana (forearm balance), and Adho Mukha Vrksasana (handstand), and....drills to prepare our cores! Did someone say Block Party?

Inversions emphasize strength and trust--you will leave this workshop with a new perspective on, and appreciation of both!

Poseurs is an inclusive donation based yoga series founded on the intention of creating space for community magic for all beings. We build community through the shared practice of yoga asana, meditation, art, study of yogic texts and community service for social change. The series was born in 2014 out of the monthly yoga fanzine “Poseurs”, and has since grown into daily class series of diverse styles of yoga asana and much, much more!

In 2017 Poseurs raised over $5,000.00 for 13 different charities in their weekly Dope Moments “Yoga for the Resistance” class, started a sister school, Practice “School of Magic” to run accessible, yearly Yoga Alliance certified 200hr Yoga Teacher Trainings, and are currently working to host a weekly POC class! So cool! AND yes, the zine is still going! You can snag one up for free in any Poseurs class.

We are so excited to be included in the Ritual House family, and feel so honored to be able to offer an all levels, donation based yoga class in such a beautiful space. Our class starts on Saturday April 7th, and will run weekly through mid-summer! We look forward to practicing with you!

women’s breathwork circle

led by tai hubbert

wed. apr. 11th

7-9p •​ $55

“the ceremony was the most profound healing experience i have had to date.” –t.f.

in the potent field that’s created when women come together in support of healing and awakening, you will engage an active, connected breathing technique to create the conditions for healing in your body, and reconnect to the wisdom that lies beyond any confusion, self-doubt, and sense of smallness.

in reclaiming the fullness of your breath, your body has the opportunity to discharge energetic holdings (from trauma, daily stressors, undigested emotional experiences, etc.) that consume your life force energy and limit your capacity to rest in your body with ease, clarity, joy, love, and power.

tai holds a strong, compassionate, and sacred container for deep work of the self, and you will receive individual support throughout the journey, including hands-on work and shamanic healing.

breathwork is of benefit to anyone interested in living one’s highest potential, and no prior experience is required. as this process can be physically and emotionally demanding, please contact tai(tai@swordandlotus.com) or ritual house of yoga prior to registration if you have any of the following conditions: pregnancy, severe hypertension or cardiovascular disease, epilepsy, bipolar disorders or schizophrenia, or recent major surgeries or communicable diseases.

future date: 5/9

soft serve

breathwork + restorative yoga swirled together

led by josephine edmondson | music by emma high

sat. apr. 14 • 11a - 1p • $25

There is no sweeter treat than breathwork and restorative yoga swirled together. the cherry on top of this soft serve bliss will be the magic soundscapes of emma high’s turntable music magic.​

the focus of this entire sweet treat workshop will be on active relaxation. if you want to relieve the effects of chronic stress, discomfort, and dis-ease in your body, this workshop is for you.​​

In this two hour workshop, Josephine Edmondson will guide you in a specific breathwork technique that will motivate trapped energy to move through and out of you. This breathwork releases stuck and stagnant emotions that are blocking you from reaching your fullest expression of self.

Breathwork is W O R K and that’s why we will take the second half of our time together to melt in passive restorative poses, supported by various props. Each shape will stimulate and relax the body, moving it towards balance.

This experience is taught for ALL LEVELS of practitioner. jump on this tasty treat while the cones are hot!​ and come chill the fudge out.

myofascial release series:
back side

led by betsy shilling

sun. apr. 15 • 1-3p • $40​

In this workshop we will spend two hours unravelling stuck connective tissue (fascia) in the back-body and the back arm lines. Join us to learn new techniques not covered in Top to Toes and to review a few favorites! You will experience the profound benefits of myofascial release through self-massage for your feet, calves, hamstrings, glutes, lower, mid and upper back, neck and arms. We will work with 3 sizes of pliable and grippy Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls on the mat and against the wall to bring relief, awareness and understanding to our painful places of muscle and fascial tension and you will leave with the insight you need to integrate Yoga Tune Up® Ball Therapy into your daily-wellness practice.

This workshop is truly for ANY body - no experience needed. We consider it part of the antidote for too much sitting and too much stress. If you have discomfort in your feet, tightness in your calves and hamstrings, discomfort in your back, stiffness in your shoulders and neck or tired forearms from repetitive use, you really won’t want to miss this one!

led by tai hubbert

sun. apr. 15th

4-6:30p •​ $65

“what an incredible introduction to breathwork. the ceremony was amazing, humbling, and life changing.” –n.s.

as the breath is the only function of the autonomic nervous system that can be consciously controlled, it serves as a potent gateway to healing, transformation, and liberation. ​

in this ceremony, you will engage an active, connected breathing technique to create a powerful healing state in the body in which old energetic holdings can be processed and released, and your lifeforce energy reclaimed.

in recalibrating the body to it’s natural state, one can experience greater physical energy and vitality, mental clarity, creativity and inspiration, ease of being, and capacity to feel empowered in life.

tai holds a strong, compassionate, and sacred container for deep work of the self, and you will receive individual support throughout the journey, including hands-on work and shamanic healing. this work serves as a transformative catalyst to living in greater alignment with one’s true nature, for the benefit of all.

registration opening soon! more info: http://bravelifeyoga.com/about...

Join Em Boardway and Terilyn Wyre for a weekend immersing yourself in the embodiment of four feminine archetypes to reclaim power with words, sex, money and time.

In what ways will your personal power shift when the lens of these four female archetypes’ shadow sides (Virgin, Whore, Bitch, and Witch) are approached anew from their light side (priestess, Muse, Queen, and Healer, respectively)? ”Together let’s examine and dismantle power-over (oppressor) and power-under (oppressed) dynamics. Let’s get to work, and play.” -em

The work in each module will be part asana based (embodiment) and part lecture/discussion. more information on the module breakdowns and archetypes can be found here: http://bravelifeyoga.com/about...

This is a weekend immersion, not four separate workshops. The registration price includes everything you need for all four modules (12 hours) over the course of the weekend. Attendance in each module is important as context for the last/next one. This immersion is open to anyone identifying as female.
