    Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" — sun/stimulating energy with the "Tha" — moon/calming energy.

    Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening.  Suggested equipment: comfortable attire, yoga mat, yoga block, strap, blanket/pillow.

    MUST Register by: 5/4 or two day before each class.

    Sacred style is a way of dressing that aligns with who you truly are, an outward representation of your beliefs, roles, and goals. In this presentation and meditation, we'll play with color, print, textile, symbols, fashion history, and personal inquiry to discover how to use your wardrobe for communication and manifestation. Through intentional personal expression, we'll find ways to connect deeply into the beautiful, the magical, and the sacred every single day.  

    Sica Schmitz is a sustainable stylist, energy healer, grief guide, soul writer, and transformation teacher. She has spent almost two decades in the fashion industry — from retail to fashion design to costume design. She creates an intersection between what we wear and who we are by combining Reiki, yoga, the Akashic Records, and veganism with fashion. She has worked with O-The Oprah Magazine, ABC's hit show Castle, and hundreds of ethical fashion brands. Her past creations include Impact Fashion and Bead & Reel, and her current creation is the healing collective The Rewoven, which offers classes, workshops, meditations, and private sessions to heal our relationship with our fashion (and ourselves).

    In 1986, the Los Angeles Public Library had one of the most disastrous fires. For more than seven hours it burned and by the time it was extinguished, it had consumed four hundred thousand books and damaged seven hundred thousand more. More than thirty years later, the mystery remains: Did someone purposefully set fire to the library—and if so, who? And, what is the larger, crucial role that libraries play in our lives? –goodreads.com

    Neoclassic artist, Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825), was an important French painter during the French Revolution and Napoleonic Era. He was an active supporter of the French Revolution and later aligned himself with Napoleon and the French Republic. His paintings are realistic and classical in style with sculptural severity. His type of history painting was a change from the frivolities of Rococo.

It is the story of Einstein’s wife, a brilliant physicist in her own right, whose contribution to the special theory of relativity is hotly debated and may have been inspired by her own profound and very personal insight. –goodreads.com

    The sculptures of Michelangelo were a major influence on Auguste Rodin (1840-1917). Like Michelangelo, Rodin worked mostly with the human figure, his figures express emotional intensity, and at times, he left his sculptures to seem unfinished, but to Rodin, they were complete. Some of his famous sculptures are The Thinker, The Kiss and The Burghers of Calais.
