Level 2 Certified Forrest Yoga Teacher, Sharon Dawson 

Sharon began her Yoga practice in 1975 and has studied Sivananda, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Anusara, and Vinyasa. Her collective studies and experience eventually led her to Ana Forrest and the Forrest Method of Yoga. Sharon's teaching comes from a place of deep gratitude and joy. Expect clear instruction, demonstrations, and hands on assists providing you with the support to work safely and intelligently in each pose. Learn with Sharon to move freely and fluidly through this beautiful and healing practice.

Saturday May 6   from 1:00 - 3:00pm - Unraveling the Mysteries of the Hips and Core - A Forrest Yoga Workshop.

Sometimes the Hips and Core can feel like the greatest mystery. How do we achieve smooth, easy mobility in our hip joints with core support? How do we open our hips and engage our abdominals to get into that tricky bind or graceful arm balance?

Many of us have been taught to hold our bellies in or to work the external “cosmetic” muscles to achieve rock-hard washboard abs. And the hips! Sometime they feel like cement in some areas and loose and easy in others. What can we do to achieve balance?

Healthy muscles are springy and elastic. They have resilience and the ability to both contract and release. Learn exercises that strengthen your deep internal muscles to support digestion and stabilize the low back. Practice working authentically from your core. Movements will become more graceful, fluid and easy.

Forrest Yoga is a strong, modern style developed by Ana T. Forrest. Emphasis is on connecting to the subtle muscles of the core, deep breath, and pose sequences to build heat, flush out toxins and release stuck emotions.

All levels are welcome! Pose modifications and up-levels are offered as well as special emphasis on how to work with and heal injuries. Apex poses include some fun binds, hip openers and more challenging arm balances.

Sharon Dawson has been teaching Forrest Yoga for 12 years and continues to train with and assist her beloved teacher, Ana T. Forrest.

Sunday May 7 from 4:00 - 6:00pm Restorative Yoga with Sound and Crystal Healing

Experience the synchronicity of Yoga, Sound, Crystals and Healing Touch!

Sharon and Jeff Dawson guide you through a series of yoga poses designed to gently release soft tissue surrounding the muscles where tension and trauma are stored. The studio is cleared and energetically charged with a crystal grid to support your healing journey. The sound of the Crystal Bowls activates and aligns each of your seven chakras, creating balance.  Sharon Dawson uses healing hands to integrate the experience.

All asanas are practiced on the floor with the support of blankets, bolsters and blocks. Rest comfortably and quietly in each pose as you drop into a state of deep, peaceful meditation. You will feel refreshed and revitalized! Dress comfortably in layers and if you like, bring an eye pillow to cover the eyes. All levels are welcome.

Sharon Dawson is a Restorative Yoga Teacher with intention to heal the body. Jeff Dawson is Master Crystalographer and Earth Alchemist who uses sound and crystals to heal the earth.
