  • Yoga for Cyclists (and other Athletes)

    with Megan Hall and Megan Moore

    Sunday, February 25 · 2-4pm

    Designed for cyclists and athletes, this practice will combine a mindful, athletic vinyasa sequence led by Megan Moore, designed to aid in releasing toxins from the major muscles used in cycling and running, followed by an hour of yin yoga led by Megan Hall, focusing on long-held, passive postures that encourage increased range of motion and deeper meditative states of consciousness. As our practice focuses on instructing alignment and breath in every posture, no prior experience is necessary, and all bodies are welcome. A great way to restore after the Rocheport Roubaix!

  • Yoga In Action

    with Leslie Kersha and Lisa Harrison

    Saturdays April 7th- April 28th · 1:00-4:00pm

    Are you ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery in the service of others? Join Leslie and Lisa for this four-week program inspired by their Off The Mat, Into The World: Yoga Purpose in Action training. Their experience at Off the Mat was so transformative, they committed to bringing Yoga in Action back to the Columbia community and YOU! This is an opportunity to build community around yoga and service, to develop relationships with other yogis and activists, and to collaborate on creating authentic and lasting change close to home. In this training, with the support of a small group of peers, participants journey from inward witnessing and acceptance to outward purposeful and accountable action within their communities and the outside world. Yoga in Action’s mission is to bridge the gap between yoga, interpersonal transformation, social justice and action by building a network of embodied, inspired, and motivated people, committed to actively serving their communities in a conscious and sustainable way.
