Our biggest event of the season

Dear Friends,

I am excited and honored to be bringing my friend and esteemed yoga teacher, Elena Brower, to Nantucket this summer. Please don’t miss this chance to study with Elena right here, in the heart of Nantucket at the stunning Dreamland Film & Performing Arts Center.

She will be available for you Friday evening, August 1st and Saturday, all day, August 2nd. We have organized Elena’s time with us into 3 distinct but cohesive programs. You can sign up for one or all three!

ABOUT ELENA BROWER: Mama, founder and co-owner of VIRAYOGA, and co-author of The Art of Attention, Elena has taught yoga for 16+ years. Through her teaching, influenced by several traditions including alignment based Hatha and Kundalini yoga, Elena offers yoga as a way to approach our world with realistic reverence and gratitude. Her classes are a masterful, candid blend of artful alignment and attention cues for your body, mind and heart.

Here are the individual program details:

1. OPEN: Friday 6:00-8:30pm

2. LISTEN: Saturday 9:00am-12pm
Open Level Practice for cultivating stillness and steadiness even in the midst of real action. Expect a series of twists and backbends to engage our listening and our deepest quiet.

Intermediate Level Practice for cultivating trust in our bodies, our minds, our hearts and our community. Expect a well-rounded practice of forward bends, hip openers and arm balances.
