Restorative Yoga

Appropriate for all levels, restorative yoga is practiced at a slow pace, focusing on long holds, stillness, and deep breathing. Props are used such as blankets, bolsters, blocks and straps. Restorative classes are typically mellow and low-energy, making them a great complement to more active practices (as well as our busy lives) and an excellent antidote to stress. The Sunday class, taught by Kim Miller, offers her therapeutic sound therapy-certified skills!

Sundays :: 6:45 pm- 8:15 pm (75 min class)

 

 

Our Weekly Yoga classes

Yin Yoga :: Joint Regeneration

This class focuses on mobility, joint health and learning to find expansion in our myofascial system. We focus on holding yin yoga poses for a longer length of time while finding deep openings in the joints and also learning to "work" in stillness. This class is designed for all abilities and experience with yoga.

Yin Yoga + Somatics

Yin yoga focuses on 5-7 poses for the entirety of the class while working through soft tissue release and stretching our joints. Somatic awareness exercises are often woven into these yin classes while bringing awareness to our breath and becoming more conscious of the inner landscape of our neurobiology

Tuesdays :: 4:30 pm - 5:45 pm (75 min class)

Wednesdays :: 8:30 am - 9:30 am (60 min class)

Thursdays :: 8:30 am- 9:30 am (60 min class)

 

YOGA CLASSES

Yoga of 12-Step Recovery

Y12SR is a holistic model that addresses the physical, mental & spiritual dis-ease of addiction and relapse prevention. Informed by the latest research in neuroscience and trauma healing, Y12SR combines the somatic approach of yoga with the cognitive approach of the 12 step model. With a fundamental belief that the “the issues live in our tissues” ... the body bears the burden of addiction, as it gets ‘stuck’ in us.  Y12SR is open to anyone and everyone dealing with addiction — their own or the addictive behavior of others.

Fridays :: 8:30 am - 9:30 am (By Donation)

Classes are donation based and taught by Meridith Siviglia. Meridith is grateful for the opportunity to bring this class to the community and share the gifts of recovery. With a strong held belief that asking for and receiving help is our doorway home to ourselves, these classes will focus on helping us walk through the doorways of our lives. These doorways open our hearts to a new way of loving ourselves and those in our lives. It is through love that we heal.

Community Meditation Class

This 45 minute class provides the space to explore your inner landscape through awareness and presence. Cultivating a stillness practice takes time, discipline, and tools; and we are here to support you on your journey. You will be guided through different stillness techniques and also given space and silence to practice those techniques on your own. Research shows that seated stillness practices have tremendous positive effects on nervous system functioning and overall well-being. This class is a great addition to receiving regular craniosacral therapy treatments. All levels welcome. Chairs and props provided.
Classes will be led with rotating instruction from Anne Baggenstoss and Jade Stevens. Anne & Jade are both craniosacral practitioners and have a deep passion for the art of stillness and presence. They look forward to sharing space with the community in this way! 

Wednesdays :: 12:15pm - 1:00 pm  (Drop-ins welcome!)

Sandpoint Women's Red Tent

The Women’s Red Tent is a sacred space where women gather, empower and nurture each other through sharing wisdom in a tender heart-centered safe space. We do not re-create the traditions of other times or cultures, rather we create a sacred space within our sisterhood community to honor the sanctity of woman’s experience of menarche, menstruation and menopause. All women and girls ready for ceremony are welcome, no matter where on their menstrual or life cycle. Please bring, if you like, a personal item to be blessed on the altar, a song to share and musical instruments like rattles, shakers, drums, or bells.
Please note:  The Red Tent is a safe space for all women to come together in community.
Although we may differ on some of our views, we still support one another as sisters and friends living in our community.  Love and compassion first.
Upcoming Red Tents::

Wednesday Ecstatic Dance

The described effects of ecstatic dance include a feeling of connection with others, indeed of "universal relatedness", and with the dancer's own emotions; serving as a meditation, providing a way of coping with stress and restoring serenity; and serving as a spiritual practice.

Hosted by Kristine Kaindle

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

FAB5743B-CB27-4F4A-9026-411D6B5F2068

When: November 11th-14th

What: This class teaches how to listen and feel the inner movements of a person’s body. You will connect to the basic cranial rhythms and see how they impact the body. You will study fascial intelligence, the diaphragm releases, and the cranial lifts. Each day participants will both give and receive a practice session. By the end of this class you will be able to give a full basic craniosacral session.

Instructor: Etienne Peirsman

As a meditator of over 40 years, Etienne Peirsman developed a unique teaching style over the past two decades that adds an extraordinarily compassionate and meditative depth to the methods used by the Upledger Institute and combines a practical, no-nonsense approach with the biodynamic style.

 

Women's Natural Movement & Dance Class

When :: Sunday, August 28th from 9 am-5pm

What :: Spend a day with Bartle who is a trained modern dancer gone rouge. In her adult life she has walked over 20,000 miles by foot and done wilderness trips in some of the most rugged landscapes within the U.S. she carries her dance practice everywhere she goes and is offering two movement classes in the local area.

Why :: To remain curious, playful, and trying new things is a great way to learn about yourself and inhabit your body deeper. This class will offer a series of movement practices you can take with you anywhere you go. It is a movement class and dance class that will remind you to be at home when your body is in motion.

Instructor :: Bartle

Investment: Sliding scale - $65-$95

Etienne Headshot

When: November 18th-21st

What: When a child is born there are many pressures on the skull that hold the base of the brain and the platelets of the head into fixed positions. The normal hardening of these bones locks the skull into a ‘baby position’. Without intervention this position stays with us for the rest of our lives. In this class we will be able to increase the flexibility of the cranial base and allow the brain to function within the maximum space available. The creation of space for the brain will release a whole new avenue of intelligence that was unavailable before.
