A benefit event to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Harvey and Irma. Together we can make a difference while bringing awareness to the greater issue at large.
Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have affected tens of millions of people in the last few weeks. Homes and infrastructure have been destroyed. Tens of thousands of people and animals have been displaced. Crops lost. This event follows a broader trend of increasing extreme events. In just the last year, catastrophic infrastructural damage, deaths and financial losses were caused from floods in the Bangladesh, Niger, Nepal, and Peru; while droughts and fires of El Niño affected 60 million people across the African continent. We can’t stop natural disasters, but we can reduce the impact of poor urban design, preparadness and inequality.
Climate change exacerbates circumstances.
On September 24th we will come together to build a beautiful community; discover tools to restore and rejuvenate the internal ecology of our body, mind and heart; celebrate and act.
• Yoga practice with Heidi Michelle
• Conversation with climate change conservationists and specialists.
• Speakers Kyle Chandler-Isacksen of Be The Change Project

Increase Your Flexibility, Range of Motion, & Sense of Humor.
Join Kathleen Ames for this 2 hour workshop designed to help you safely increase flexibility, regardless of your perceived ability. Learn stable stretching techniques to deepen your range, and laugh a little along the way.
$20 Advance Registration. $25 at the Door.
After 4 car accidents, 3 abdominal surgeries, being diagnosed with an Auto-Immune disease and 17 years of teaching yoga Kathleen Ames has some special and unique insights to increase flexibility. At age 58 she is stronger, more fit and more flexible than she was in her 20's. Although she has had through 5+ teacher trainings (Anusara, Vinyasa, Flow, Vinniyoga, Pre/postnatal and Yin Yoga) pain has been her biggest teacher. After 13 years of being in pain, Kathleen is now pain free. Her zest for life and gratitude for the present moment is infectious.
I believe in a therapeutic, orthopedic, anatomy-based approach to movement in the body. My love for yoga started in 2001 and following my path to teaching, became a certified 200RYT in 2005 from the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, CA through the amazing teachings of Ganga White and Tracey Rich. Not long after receiving my yoga certification I was introduced to the Pilates method. I realized the synergetic relationship Yoga and Pilates could offer to truly connect the body to mindful movement. I then pursued my Pilates training and received my Reformer I, II, III certification through Balanced Body University. After becoming a mother in 2010, I received my children's yoga certification in San Francisco, CA so I could give my daughters and other children the gift of yoga in their lives. I'm always continuing my education and am most recently working on my 500RYT through Yoga Medicine. I am continuing this journey expanding my depth of knowledge and working closely with healthcare practitioners to provide yoga and Pilates as medicine for both the body and mind.
