Upcoming Events


{Tomorrow!} POC Practice x Make Shift: October 12, 6:30pm-7:30pm

POC Practice is back in action! This class will be led by Vanessa Ly, a close homie of mine and an all-around incredible person. (Some of you may have met her over the summer when she assisted one of our classes.) Vanessa recently graduated from JP Centre Yoga's Teacher Training with support from the Yoga Diversity Initiative. She'll be teaching bi-weekly through the end of 2016, so I'm excited for y'all #getfamiliar. Get the event invite for our next class here.  

{NEXT SATURDAY} #BossUpBrunch Part I: October 22, 11:30am-2:30pm

Are you trying to live in alignment but don’t know where to begin?  Do you have a lofty goal in mind but can’t see a way forward? This workshop will give you clarity about what you want to do, how it fits into your values, and how to get there. Discussion topics include:

  • Criteria for setting concrete, achievable goals

  • How to determine your first steps

  • How to create rituals that support you in your goals

  • How to reroute when your plans change

Goal Setting and Go Getting includes an all levels hour-long yoga class, light brunch and time to mingle with other folks attending. No worries if you don’t have a goal in mind-- we’ll do some generative activities to get you started. A pre-work guide will be sent a week before the workshop to frame the discussion and jumpstart your thinking. Tickets are available for $25-$35. Capacity is limited and tickets are on the move, so buy yours soon! Find more information at, or check out the facebook event here

If the sliding scale range is out of your reach but you'd still like to participate, we have a limited number of work study scholarships available. If interested, please email with "#BossUpBrunch Scholarship" in the subject.
