TWEEN YOGA TEACHER TRAINING Translating the Practice of Yoga into a Language Kids Understand and Enjoy
Our Tween Yoga training targets a narrow age range between 9 and 13 years old, and is designed to guide participants in how to leverage yoga to bridge the gap between "child" and "teenager." This training begins by covering techniques associated with teaching asanas to this age group, and pose variations that are best suitable to a Tween’s changing body. The training discusses pranayama and meditation at length and how both tools can help mitigate stress and anxiety and promote healthy self-regulation. This 12 hour training is designed to deconstruct yogic concepts and philosophies and translate them into concepts and activities that are relatable to Tweens in order to support their everyday life. You will leave feeling inspired and empowered to bring yoga to this impressionable and sensitive age group.

Winter "Calling in the Light" Mala-Making Workshop
Sun, Dec 2, 2018 at 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
"I wish I could show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being.”- Hafiz
The Winter Solstice, which arrives later in the month of December, marks a shift in daylight, when we begin to emerge from the darkness back into the light. As the long, dark days of Winter approach, we are urged to call on the light within us. Join us in appreciation of the darkness which serves to illuminate our own inner light. Allow your inner light to give you inner sight, to see what needs to be seen and hear what needs to be heard!
Let’s celebrate this season of quiet and peacefulness while creating a sacred mala necklace which will serve as a reminder of this introspective season. We will be creating with gemstones especially selected for Winter’s energy or to support the light within. As always, we’ll begin in a restorative pose and seasonal meditation. Nature invites us this time of year to hibernate, to reflect, to slow down, and to restore. Honor the pause.
Mala simply means garland in Sanskrit, the sacred language of yoga. Japa (meaning repetition) malas have been used for centuries to steady the mind in meditation. Give yourself this gift of creating a special mala with meaning and intention, or perhaps create one as a thoughtful gift for a loved one.

Soothe Your Soul with Singing Bowls!
Join us for an evening of peace and relaxation. Give yourself the gift of mindfulness practice and let stress and tension melt away!
No meditation experience necessary!
Class will be held in our studio and given by Catherine Epstein of Jewels of the Lotus, formerly of Sea Cliff - now located within Absolute Yoga Studio! Catherine is a Reiki Master and Transformational Life Coach, specializing in sound and vibrational healing work.
Lie in savasana while Yvonne Suzuki Licopoli guides you through a healing journey on the wings of pure and perfect sound. This is not a performance, but a sacred sound experience created by the transformative powers of the tonal vibrations of gongs, crystal alchemy singing bowls and other exotic instruments.
You will feel the peaceful energy of harmonic resonance as it permeates your body at a cellular level, inducing deep relaxation as chakras align.
Sound Journeys are held on or near full moon days, when the earth’s energy is greatest and most beneficial for healing.
