Oct

to Oct 14

Bowspring Elementals

Join us with Alison Moore for a full weekend immersion experience in the Bowspring.  The Bowspring is a postural alignment based on the curves of the spine that embraces light, curvy, fluid movement.  This Elementals weekend is an ALL-levels experience and will bring joy and benefit to both first-time Bowspringers as well as students interested in diving deeper.  The specific focus of this weekend is the Ten Key Areas of the Bowspring with a focus on the specific details of the posture and the benefits of the posture to mental, emotional, and physical well-being.  

Alison has been teaching the Bowspring posture for five years and is part of the core family of Vital Center for Mind Body Health  - home of the Bowspring in Denver, CO.  With a background in competitive kickboxing, Alison understands the courage we ask of ourselves when venturing to explore a new physical challenge. And with levity, she invites each of us to test the boundaries of what we believe possible. Come practice and unveil the next layer of your own self!

St. Brigid's Fire
Jul

to Jul 22

St. Brigid's Fire

A Women's Blacksmithing, Embodiment & Empowerment Workshop

Join us for this "fiery" blacksmithing event with Olivia Pevec & Lindsay Gurley. You will be introduced to the art of the forge, inspired by Ireland's St. Brigid, Patron Saint and Fire Mystic. St. Brigid created an inextinguishable fire which burned for 500 years at the religious house for women she founded in Kildare. This fire was also part of her spirit to give things away, despite protests from her wealthy father. She continually gave food to the poor, but her pantry was always full. The kitchen fire burning and warming the home was part of her legacy. Women have showered many with tangible and intangible gifts from their kitchens and they have stoked those inextinguishable fires for well over 500 years. We gather to celebrate the fire that burns in women's hearts, fire that they convey to men and children and their community through their warm & giving spirit.

Location: CRMS
Cost: $625 (Space is Limited)
