Clear Sphere Yoga presents a Chakra Balancing Workshop (just in time for the Holidays!)

Say hello to Annelise!

Annelise Latini is the powerhouse behind Clear Sphere Yoga at the Pajama Factory, a new yoga studio that has been generating a lot of excitement around here.  This weekend she will be teaming up with Brittany from the Triad Center for a Chakra Balancing workshop in her welcoming, light-filled studio.

Chakra is a Sanskrit word (meaning ‘wheel,’) that describes the seven energy centers in the human body. Ideally, these energy centers are balanced, leading to a mind filled with harmony and a body that’s well-suited to dealing with the stress and struggles we all face in life. (Something we will all need going into the holidays!)

The half-day workshop will take place on Sat, Nov. 18th from 1-5pm and will feature physical poses, breathwork, meditation, and essential oils (created in collaboration with Shana of BATHVS.) Of course this is a great workshop for Yoga practitioners, teachers and energy workers, but it assumes no prior knowledge, just a willingness to learn about this ancient, yet very modern tradition.

You can find all of the details and register on the event page: http://www.chakrabalancingworkshop.ontrapages.com/november18

Studio 570 Mainstage Production – Alice.

The creative team and performers of Studio 570 created an immersive and interactive production here at the Pajama Factory that took audience members on journey through Wonderland.  From walking through Alice’s tears, running in the Dodo’s caucus race, to sipping tea with the Mad Hatter and the March Hare… it was truly a unique, one-of-a-kind experience.
