Thanksgiving Yin/Yang Fusion Flow Charity Class

Join Danielle Pollen on Thursday, November 27 at TS Dupont for an reflective yin practice before Thanksgiving!

This charity yoga class is appropriate for all levels and will incorporate both yin yoga and yang (or active) yoga. Yin yoga focuses on passive asanas with breath work and meditation to create a very deep, integrated and satisfying practice. Complementary to active vinyasa, yin yoga targets the deep, dense connective tissues of the body — the tendons, ligaments and cartilage — which are difficult to energize and open.

handmade holiday 2A

October 26th was the second in our three-part series of Handmade Holiday workshops at Tranquil Space Arlington. We had a great time exploring the art of crocheting with a mix of new to experienced crocheters. We made granny squares and shared knitting and crocheting experiences.

Stephanie, Halyna, Danielle, Katherine, (seethem hard at work in the photo – clockwise from top left) and Melania (not pictured) had a great time and made some great progress. We are all very excited about the third workshop next month where we’ll learn a mesh scarf or coffee cup cozy.
