Yoga is about connection, something Brene Brown says that all humans are designed to seek. We need connection to our inner self; the parts of us we don’t show on Instagram. We need to connect with what Elizabeth Gilbert calls our “animal body” – our biological needs of what we eat and drink, how we sleep and rest, and how we play and move this intricate collection of cells, tissues, bones, and neurons. And we need to nourish our connections to other humans: our family relationships, friendships, and our neighborhoods are part of the fabric of our being. It is through all of these facets that connection with the divine glows brighter.
Our studio practices and classes are designed to help you integrate these connections, weaving them together. Beyond classes centered on movement and breath, Woven Yoga will be an open space designed to nurture connection within and between individuals.
Woven Yoga’s shared space is available to groups or individuals for a nominal fee to help provide a place to come together.
Beyond a regular practice schedule, Woven Yoga hosts events and series for specific groups of people for a limited time. These groups are formed to use yoga as a catalyst for growth in areas of life off the mat.
Yoga Book Club
Yoga Book Club is a seasonal group that uses favorite reads to prompt discussion, followed by a yoga practice to help us notice what the concepts feel like in our bodies. In the past, Yoga Book Club has used Learning to Walk in the Dark by Barbara Brown Taylor and The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo.
Our community contains so much wisdom and Woven Yoga is dedicated to giving it a place to heard. From time to time we’ll host guest teachers, both of yoga and other modalities, to share expertise in living an integrated life. These individuals come to us with experience in the arts, sciences, health & wellness, spirituality or simply interesting topics that make for great conversation and wholesome living.
Summer Yoga Book Club
Sunday, June 7 • 4 PM & 6:30 PM
Yoga Book Club takes a different shape in the summer. Instead of meeting weekly for a series of weeks to discuss by chapter, these Yoga Book Club single-session events will use time to discuss the entire book before enjoying a practice together.
June’s Yoga Book Club pick is Untamed by Glennon Doyle. It’s a series of essays but it walks us through the reshaping of her life as she listens to her inner wisdom. Glennon herself is asking that you support your local indie bookseller by purchasing from them. This is your way of nabbing a signed copy.
Due to restrictions on capacity, I’ll offer this experience twice in the same day to 2 groups of 6 people. You’ll want to sign up early – Yoga Book Club events tend to fill fast.
