Alert for Saturday, June 25th - We have had to cancel our morning in-person classes due to road closures around Shine for the Hyde Park Blast. We are still able to hold virtual mixed-level at 8:30 and our afternoon pre- and post-natal.
The big star we call the Sun will be moving into the constellation Leo tonight (July 22, 2015) at 11:30 pm. Can you feel the shift? It can be quite noticeable since we are leaving the lunar ruled sign of Cancer, that can have us feeling moody and deeply self reflective, and entering the self confident energy of Leo. On the personality level you may find yourself standing up straighter, more energized to go out and do things and move away from self doubt. Cancer and the moo
Putting this series of AstroAsanas together has changed me on a very deep level. It has allowed me the opportunity to deeply dive into each sign of the Zodiac in a different way that I have done before. Like an actor preparing for a role, I allow myself to submerge into the energies of each sign and try to experience life from that perspective for a month or so. Swimming in the waters of Pisces, the last sign of the Zodiac, has brought me to my knees, in a good way. To my kn
I have been studying astrology since the the late 1980’s when Steve and I moved to Colorado and worked with Sun Signs’s and Love Sign’s author, Linda Goodman. Even when we were studying with Linda, I always found Aquarius a bit of an enigma. The eclectic sign of consciousness, groups, ………… What does that mean? Group consciousness? On the mundane level Aquarius is characterized as the absent minded professor, one who has knowledge but not necessarily common sense. It is about
Capricorn (December 21- January 20) has two festive Holidays nestled into its time frame. We have Christmas with the celebration of the coming of the gifted Child and New Year’s which marks the first day of a new calendar year. With all this celebrating it is interesting that many people are not so jovial. As a matter of fact many people in the Northern Hemisphere are languid and many even deal with depression at this time. Instead of wanting to be social, many of us feel a
The chill is returning to the air here in the Northern Hemisphere. Many of us like Fall and the incredible colors it brings, but there is also simmering dread in some of us as we contemplate what comes after Fall. Some like winter and it what it offers but for many of us feel the constriction in our bodies from the changing temperature and we feel a heaviness at least for a while as our bodies transition. Enter the season of Scorpio. It is a fixed sign. The first sign of Fal
Ever since I was a little boy I believed in magic. I remember distinctly trying to make things happen with my thoughts. Sometimes they did. The pure belief of a child’s innocence is powerful stuff. I believed that there were real places like the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and that if you believed enough you could make magic happen. This month as we enter the sign of Virgo we revisit the Alchemical powers of the god Mercury also known as Hermes. Mercury was th
As you read this blog entry, think of some regal music like Trumpet Voluntary or Ode to Joy. “Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da……. Something with big horns and lots and lots of grand energy. Making an entrance on to our AstroAsana stage is Leo, the sign of the Lion, the king, or as the Egyptians called him, RA, the sun god. Leo is ruled by the Sun in both personality astrology and esoteric astrology so it can be hard for Leo to not feel like the center of attention with all the

You can preregister on the "workshops" tab at our MindBody Portal. The sun changes from one sign of the zodiac to another every 30 days or so. The energy change from one sign to another can be quite jarring for some of us. It can also explain why certain months every year seem to be
