Summer Solstice Yoga Mala 108
Yoga Mala with Tiffany Shocklee and music from Lil’ Sumn Sumn
Join your Vital yoga community in an exuberant ritual practice- 108 Surya Namaskar/Sun salutations offered up in celebration of the summer solstice. In the lingering light of the brightest day of the year, we invite our own internal flame and creative potential to shine forth. Musical guests Lil Sum’n Sum’n weave a trance of tribal beats to draw you deeper into your own rhythmic pulse. With poetry, philosophy, and powerful silence blended in, the repetition of a simple sequence becomes a full body meditation. The collective fire grows stronger from each individual spark- whether you do all 108 sun salutations is not the point. This is a potent practice to honor the passing of seasons and to bask in the light of the vibrant Vital community.
All levels of experience are welcome.
Please join us afterwards for potluck style food and drink. Feel free to bring something delicious if you are inspired.

Getting the Balls To Balance
Want to hold a handstand or forearm stand in the middle of the room? Want to wean yourself off of the wall and feel the freedom of true balance? Then join Therese Chavez Saturday, May 18 for her arm balance play-shop “Getting the Balls to Balance”. As Therese demystifies these adventurous poses, you will learn:
· Tips and exercises for building your core.
· Clear and simple techniques for balancing in the middle of the room.
· And finally the joy and freedom of letting your inner fearlessness come out and play in a safe environment.
While we’ll focus on having fun with handstands and forearm stands, you’ll also reap the benefits of inverting. This includes developing focus, coordination and patience while strengthening the body evenly to improve flexibility. Orienting the body upside down gives perspectives to see the world and yourself in a new courageous way. I will take individual differences into account – as well as injuries or limitations.
Part of the proceeds will be donated to “Relay for Life” a support network for the American Cancer Society.
Therese Chavez has been a joyful practitioner of Yoga for 13 years and has been teaching at Vital Yoga for the last 8 of those years.

Yoga and Adventure in Montenegro
June 13 – 27, 2013
$2,500 + airfare
Micah Springer and Rada Perovic, long term practitioner at Vital Yoga, born in Montenegro, will be your hosts for a two week excursion to this unspoiled Mediterranean and mountain paradise.
Montenegro, with a population of 730,000 and area of 5,300 m2, gained independence in May, 2006 and has the distinction of being one of the world’s newest countries.
We will begin our journey on the coast where beautiful beaches meet the crystal clear azure water of the Adriatic Sea. Ada Bojana, naturalist’s paradise is the most southern point in Montenegro, small triangular shaped island at the mouth of river Bojana and Adriatic Sea. In addition to Yoga, meditation and the beach experience, we will explore the 15th century fortresses and other towns and quaint villages along the coast and enjoy the warm hospitality of the Montenegrin people while exploring the culture and the history of the region.
We will then journey to the mountainous interior, where 7,000 foot peaks rocket up from sea level, creating stunning canyons, deep valleys, and dense pine and fir forests surrounding alpine lakes, known locally as “mountain eyes”. We will spend 3 days in a shepherd’s village Goles at the Bjelasica Mountain, practice Yoga, hike and experience shepherd’s life style, similar to homesteading in America.
The cost of this trip includes all ground transportation in Montenegro, lodging, most meals, 2 days of river Tara rafting, guides, all parks and museums fees, leader’s expenses, and the Vital Yoga administrative fee. Final cost may vary depending on currency exchange fluctuations. Montenegro uses the Euro as the currency of exchange.
Number of participants 15 – 20.
We will have a pre-trip meeting the beginning of April.
