BODY LOCK :: The Bandha Lab

The OG Josie's BACK IN TOWN, BABY, and bringing us her thoughts on breath work, bandhas and how they play into general badassery in practice and beyond.

We've got two hours of Josie time to dig deep on how to access our "body locks" (spoiler alert - those are the bandhas) and discover how they can make us feel lighter, more focused, and like a boss on the mat.

Yes, we will work on getting upside-down, but it's the approach that we're after in this lab.

This workshop is included in the 200HRTT program, so if you're a TT participant, you're already signed up! We are opening a limited number of spaces to the public to join us for this session - click here to grab one.

Master of One :: The Self-Practice Lab

Because we can't always make it to a class, and sometimes a group class isn't always what we need.

In this self practice lab, Josie with work with you to develop an innate awareness of how to move with purpose, with your own self as teacher.

Ultimately, our practice can inform what we do off our mat and how we do it. It's all in the approach, on our mats and in our lives. Come and explore the vast world of what a self practice can offer.

LEMONADE :: A Beyoncé Yoga Dance Party

Join Emily and New Love City for a yoga/yoga dance event to, let's face it, the only album that really matters, Beyonce's Lemonade (Emily's opinion). This will be an epic, therapeutic, partly choreographed, part ecstatic dance, movement adventure. Discussion and actual lemonade (bring some sauce and spike, if that's your jam) with cookies to follow.

Beyonce. Lemonade. Yoga. Yoga Dance. Need we say more?

SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT :: A 90s Vinyasa Party with Be

Be is in town and she is graciously hosting a '90s party for y'all. YOU ARE WELCOME. This shindig will be 90 minutes of vinyasa and 30 of yin AND a chance to relive (and maybe relieve) all your childhood / teenage angst in yoga form. Cheaper than a workshop because it's more party than lab. Bring your friends and your discman and your vintage tshirts, probably. Okay? Okay. Click here to sign up.

SLOW + DEEP :: A Yin Yoga Lab

We're psyched to welcome Be to our spring lab roster with SLOW + DEEP, her signature Yin yoga workshop (and a little taste of what you'll get in SLOWER + DEEPER in April).

As New Yorkers, we're notorious for walking fast, moving quickly and getting things done. In fact, we're experts. Often, the hardest thing for us to do is pause, notice the breath and BE with it, without needing to change or alter the present circumstance or outcome. It is when we slow down, though, that layers of our body armor soften and we are able to sink in to the depths of our true, authentic, real selves. In this YIN workshop, we will address the layers beneath the physical body by holding postures for an extended period of time to melt away tension and liberate the flow of qi that moves through the meridians of the subtle body.

YUP.

WILD WOMEN's Medicine Circle

Hosted by Leslie Cook, The Wild Women’s Medicine Circle is a reclaiming of our tribal roots, holding space to restore the feminine spirit in a way that can only be done when we come together to sit, listen, and share. When we lived in tribes and villages it was easy to take up our circles and heal. But in today’s modern society this kind of soul-medicine is not easily found. As dynamic, creative, soaring women living in New York, our lives are busy and often challenging, leaving self-care and social time with women at the bottom of the priority list. By giving way to our hopes and fears, laughs and tears we can strip away anxieties, judgments and the stress that we are constantly battling. Feeling a part of the tribe, particularly of women, is one of the most nourishing things we can do for ourselves. So come take a seat, meet some wild, untamable women and shine.

TRULY / MADLY / DEEPLY

Thank Yoga Studio founder Josie Schweitzer is back in town and heading up a rewire as we launch into the new year.

We all have the ability to talk ourselves out of what we want, or move towards the discomfort of our truth. This is simply a choice.

But it takes work. We have to get quiet and listen. We have to be honest with ourselves and others. We have to first work through the process.

We can learn to use our voice, and stand firm in our truths. We can use our physical practice to tune in instead of tune out. We can use our meditation practice to stay focused in the process. And we can move towards what we want, learning to trust the process. This is the practice.

  • Guided meditation

  • Physical practice with a focus on breath and body locks (bandhas)

  • Inversion lab working towards handstand

Bring a notebook and writing utensil!

THE BABE COLLECTIVE :: ALCHEMY

The Babe Collective's monthly group healing, ALCHEMY is an evening devoted to the transmutation of whatever drains your life force, makes you feel heavy, or needs to be kicked to the mf curb [emotionally and mentally speaking]. Alchemy is the process of taking base material and turning it into precious substance. Through the breath, movement of the body, and a deep meditative state, you will transform your experience of yourself and what you are capable of. Breathwork is an ancient practice that is unlike anything you might have done in a yoga class. It's a vehicle for emotional release, and a psychedelic journey. It is a powerful and gentle way to move through the heavy stuff at lightning speed. People tend to feel euphoric, creative, inspired, and lighter after a session. Sound good? Good. The intention behind ALCHEMY is for you to feel completely cared for. JOIN US.

DRUNKEN SUFIS :: HOLIDAY SHINDIG

 We are having a holiday get-down this Friday, Dec 2, doors at 8, live music at 9, so don't try to be cute and fashionably late because we will not wait for you. There will be pizza and dranks and you are invited and so is your friend. My long-lost twin brother Tommy is in a band called the Drunken Sufis and they have agreed to bless us with a live version of their ambient offering, which is going to be experimental and awesome. The Sufis are accepting cash donations in support of Nodapl Water Protectors, because that seems like the right thing to do. Here's a facebook event page if you need that sort of thing. Put it in your calendar immediately and let me know if you're bringing like 35 people so I can adjust the pizza order accordingly.

STRIPPED :: A Psychosomatics Lab

Be is joining us this fall for the ultimate body-as-laboratory workshop, an inquiry into the way the body physically holds and processes our contexts, traumas and memories. Psychosomatics is the science of mind-body interaction (sounds familiar, don't it?), the intricacies of the body as a shield and storehouse for our personal histories. Starting with the basest, most animalistic of physical triggers, the fight or flight response, we'll strip away the surface and see what we can start to unlock, seeing the body as both a tool and archaeological playground for discovery.
