Come join Anu this Saturday for a Rocket Yoga session designed to kick your asana practice up a gear. Larry Schultz developed RocketYoga as a form of exercise for the Grateful Dead to keep them going while they were on tour. Larry modified the vigorous and intense traditional Ashtanga yoga style to make it fun, exciting, and accessible. We will flow through 142 strengthening asanas with a focus on lifting ourselves off the ground. Come prepared to play and sweat! You can sign-up online in advance here.
Hope to see you there!
Whether it’s a tight knotted muscle or a feeling of emotional blockage in our lives, we know what it feels like to be stuck. While we like to talk about the physical and energetic bodies as if they are two separate entities they are actually interwoven, interconnected and interdependent. If one of the four (and yes there are 4!) muscle-y breathing diaphragms are stuck there is a great chance energetically you are preventing the free flow of prana that your body richly deserves.
Join Kristin Leal on Sunday March 16 from 10:00 am – 1:30 pm at TS Dupont for

Today’s Meatless Monday is Pickled Spiced Apples
In a saucepan heat 2 cups cider vinegar, one cup water and one cup sugar until all the sugar is dissolved. Add desired spices such as grated ginger, cinnamon, black peppercorns, cloves, star anise, juniper berries, etc. Be creative.
Add cut apple pieces (about 4 apples) and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.
Immediately transfer the liquids and apples to a bowl and place the bowl in an ice bath to cool. When the mixture is cooled completely, transfer to sterilized canning jars. Make sure to use sterilized utensils and clean dishtowels when handling the food.
Refrigerate overnight and enjoy. The pickled apples will keep for many weeks, if you can resist that long. When the apples are all eaten, add fresh cut new apples (and/or pears!) to the pickling liquid to make more.
Join former Tranquil Space teacher Mary Catherine Starr for an afternoon of internal spring cleaning.
