It can also be a highly meditative practice as you are still, within your Self.

Yoga Sculpt NEW CLASS!
Saturday 8:30am 60 min Starting June 22nd with Aurore Morley!
A huge benefit of sculpt classes is that it provides an opportunity for both advanced and beginner yogis to target the muscles they need to have a strong and safe yoga practice. Yoga sculpt focuses on strength and intensity. Sculpt practice combines cardio and weights, making it unlike your typical yoga classes. However, what sets yoga sculpt apart from other intense workouts is that yoga sculpt, like all yoga classes, has a mental and emotional focus. Not only do these classes strengthen your body, but they also strengthen and challenge your mind. Practice led by Aurore Morley

Meditation: New Moon Women’s Circle
Monthly Event: Check MINDBODY or FB for date/time
Magic happens when women gather in circles to share what’s really going on inside their hearts. As part of The Global Sisterhood movement, every new moon, thousands of women in 80+ countries gather in Sister Circles to heal themselves, uplift others, and transform the world. Join our local chapter of The Global Sisterhood at Pacific Yew Yoga for our Sister Circle and Meditation. Each new moon has a theme for transformation, sisterhood, and healing. We also take this time to plant seeds of intention for the current moon cycle.
What to Expect: the gathering events include a open heart meditation followed by singing bowls, intention setting for our goals or manifestations, and sharing time. Or whatever we feel called to do! We may sing, we may dance, we’ll most likely laugh a lot and even cry a little. You never know when you get a group of Wild Women together. The energy will be electric and we would LOVE for you to be there. Whether you’ve attended a women’s circle before, or this is your first time, we welcome you to join. No previous meditation or women’s circle experience is needed. Come exactly as you are.
Please dress comfortably as we will be sitting on the floor.
Feel free to bring something to add to our altar, that we will be building together. (this could be a flower, crystal, feather, candle or anything from your cultural traditions)
This is a FREE event. LOVE DONATIONS will be accepted to honor our sacred space, (this helps to pay for the studio, and other things purchased for the circle) No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
