Fall Ayurvedic Cleanse
Guided by Cate Bradley
Lotus Center Yoga Instructor
Ayurveda is the companion discipline to yoga; both impart the wisdom of over 5,000 years of health, well-being, and living a centered life. Ayurveda teaches us about the physiology of our bodies – the organs, the fuel we ingest through food and herbs, the rhythms of our body, personality, and traits as they relate to the seasons and time of day. Clean out your system from summer heat and the social stresses of the current times, and prepare for winter wellness.
Fall Cleanse Instructional Meeting:
Wednesday, September 30, 2020; 6:00 to 8:00 PM
on Zoom through the Lotus Center
This is an introduction and overview presentation to explain how your personal characteristics (doshas) support or impact your health. Learn how food and herbs create balance within your body. Join with others for support and community as you experience your personal cleanse journey.

Love & Loss, Grief & Gratitude
An Online Workshop with Becky Glenn
Saturday, November 14, 1:30 - 4 pm
$20 (or 2 "punches" of your Lotus Center class card)
What to Expect
- To hold heart-centered space for personal and collective loss - remembering, allowing and healing
- To lovingly connect with ourselves in our unique experience - opening to deeper gratitude
- To incorporate short meditation, gentle yoga (beginner friendly), reflection and writing
The holidays can feel intense - with memories of loss hovering in the background or surfacing unexpectedly. Especially this year, these losses may include not only personal losses, but also losses experienced on a collective level.
And with this intensity, there is new potential for healing.
With life's changes, loss is part of everyone's life: loss of loved ones, of relationships, of expectations and dreams, of some aspect of health, of job, of lifestyle, of home, etc.
While there is no right or wrong way to be with loss and grief, we often don't give ourselves the time or space for it.
Yet, when we can be lovingly connected to ourselves in the midst of loss and grief, we can discover a deep wellspring within, naturally expanding in gratitude and opening to new possibilities for living.
Please give yourself the gift of your own presence, and join us for this special workshop.

Please bring: yoga mat, blanket, pillow, pen and paper
