Restorative Yoga With Sound
Friday, December 2nd @ 7pm
Come join Stephanie Cucina for Restorative Yoga with Sound. Restorative yoga is a restful practice that holds yoga postures for a longer duration and may use props like bolsters or blocks. It is a practice of deep relaxation that emphasizes the meditative aspect of yoga—the union of body and mind. Stephanie will take us through a yoga practice to help our bodies feel supported and grounded, while she fills the room with soothing sounds to enhance your state of relaxation. Take a moment to pause, relax, and reset at Sattva. Suitable for all levels, all bodies.
About Steph: Stephanie is, first and foremost, a student of yoga, but she is also an experienced yoga teacher and a sound healing practitioner. We are excited to have her here at Sattva!
Sacred Women's Circle
Full Moon in Gemini
Saturday, December 10th
Join Connie Viglietti at Sattva on December 10th for a full moon women’s circle. We'll circle together and learn about the significance of the full moon and find connection and community. All identifying women are welcome!
This essential self-care practice creates a joyful community and bonding experience and kindles a remembrance and awakening within each of us. The cycle of the moon acts as a mirror, conjuring us to reconnect with our own individual and collective cycles and rhythms as women. Witness and be witnessed.
What to expect: Never done this before? Connie creates a very comfortable environment to share and let down your hair. The circle will have a theme that we creatively connect with to spark conversation and inspiration. We may meditate, journal, move our bodies, experience sound and energy healing, play with divination and connect through various exercises. You will leave the circle of women feeling nourished and empowered.
What to bring:Wear clothing that makes you feel comfortable and beautiful. We will sit on the floor on provided floor pillows. There are chairs if you are more comfortable. Please bring a journal and a pen.
Space is limited, sign up today!

Ayurveda Self-Care & Nutrition
8 Sundays Online, Starting Sun, Jan 8
If you have noticed that your body is stagnant and mind moving a million miles an hour, you may be seeking a sense of unification: a yoga of sorts, a kind of union that takes place not only on a yoga mat or high on a mountain top but right in your home living space. That has always been the gift yoga’s sister science, Ayurveda, the wisdom of life and longevity, which takes place in action in our bathrooms, our bedrooms, kitchens, gardens, and relationships, exactly where we are right now.
In this 8-week, in-depth course with Anjali Sunita, we will meet weekly on Sundays via Zoom from 6:30-8pm, and we will engage in a deep dive into the practices that Ayurveda has to offer, from simple self-care items that can make the world of difference, to working with nutrition by dosha (or body type) and by season. What better time to start taking care of your body than the new year?
In this course, you can expect: 1 zoom call per week with access to the recordings; Some of Anjali’s favorite easy recipes; Weekly PDF documents with information and practices; One pre-recorded Intro to Ayurveda Lecture; and Access to a private FB group for group discussions and postings.
The course will take shape as we move along, but the general intention is to cover the following on a week-by-week basis, moving a little bit deeper into Ayurvedic self-care and nutrition practices each time we meet:
Creating good space (Sukha).
Practices for Balancing the Winds of Change.
The 6 Tastes of Ayurveda
Stoking the Fire
Eat for Your Dosha & Agni Type
Make some Ayurvedic Staples
Spice up Your Life
Your Questions Answered
*The course is structured so that you can pay on a sliding scale basis, anywhere from $250-350. Please select the payment option that works best for you on MindBody and pay what you are able. Thank you for your generosity.
Jan 14, Jan 21, Jan 28th, and Feb 4, 2023
Join Megan for a 4-week course to explore the Foundations of Ashtanga Yoga, a dynamic, breath-based practice. This course is designed for those brand new to yoga, new to Ashtanga yoga, or for those who want to deepen their current Ashtanga practice. We will start by learning the tristana of Ashtanga Yoga: breath, bandhas (internal locks in the body), & drishti (eye gaze).
We will work through the beginning portion of the Ashtanga practice: starting with Sun Salutations, and moving through the Fundamental Asanas. Then we will start to move through the Primary Series, little by little. Ashtanga Yoga is not an easy practice, but it can be approachable and a healing practice for all bodies. We will offer modifications for all postures so you can make the practice work specifically for you and your body.
*Cost is $95 and includes all 4 Saturday workshop classes, plus unlimited access to Mysore classes at Sattva for the duration of the program (January 14 through February 4, 2023). Sliding scale available if there is need and a commitment to practice.
