Our dear friend and wonderful teacher Arlene Griffin comes to Laughing River Yoga the weekend of June 11 and 12 when she will offer two extended yoga classes. Her teaching style is seeped in the tradition of Tantric Hatha Yoga, learned under the guidance of Yogiraj Rod Stryker and Pandit Rajmani, founder of the Himalayan Institute. Arlene teaches only a few times a year. Her classes are highly transformative.

Emily, Jane and Sofi will all be teaching as part of the local teachers stage at the Wanderlust Festival June 23-26 at Stratton Mountain. Join them along with nationally acclaimed teachers and musicians as well as yogis from all over the northeast.
It’s easy to let our yoga practice drop off with the summer weather. Yet, Patanjali tells us that in order to reap the benefits “practice must be done consistently for a long period of time”. Keep that fresh and vibrant feeling alive inside by continuing to practice. The best deal around town, a summer unlimited keeps it affordable for you. Passes can be purchased at the studio with check or cash.
Daily Practices in Essential Oils, 2-3:30 pm Saturday May 22.
Come in from the rain and join aromatherapist Anne Cameron for an uplifting and soothing essential oils experience. This class will give you tools you need to bring the benefits of essential oils into your life. You are guaranteed to leave smelling fresh and feeling rejuvenated. Drop-ins welcome. $13 or one class on card.
This month’s mini-retreat, Deep Restorative Yoga Nidra with our very own Jane Jarecki Lanza, has been postponed until Sunday July 31 9 am-12 pm.
Deep Restorative Yoga Nidra is a way to counteract stress and hurry. Through a 90 minute restorative yoga practice and a 75 minute practice of yoga nidra, you will will experience a deep sense of healing rest and a freshness and rejuvenation. As you practice various breath techniques, restorative yoga postures (slow gentle holds with the support of props), and yoga nidra you will feel revitalized. These yoga practices release tensions on the physical, mental, and emotional level. Awaken through the practice of conscious rest and reclaim a sense of wholeness. No yoga experience or exertion necessary. Time for tea and reflection included.

The nice thing about living in VT is that you can still take a awesome winter vacation in May.

Oh, the coming-out-of-nowhere moment
maybe half a moment
the rush of traffic stops.
The whir of I should be, I should be, I should be
slows to silence,
the white cotton curtains hanging still.

After making the long trek from San Diego, California to Burlington, Vermont Jamie began attending PranaVayu yoga classes in Boston. As she continued to study PranaVayu, Jamie realized that she was learning a powerful form of yoga and way of life, so powerful that it convinced her to cut back her burgeoning scientific career and follow a more fulfilling path, which includes teaching and practicing yoga. Quickly, after diving into PranaVayu, Jamie and those near her noticed positive physical and mental changes; it is these gifts that Jamie would like to share with her students. While Jamie enjoys teaching a light hearted, upbeat and physical class, she is mindful of the roots of PranaVayu and weaves the Buddhist-inspired philosophy that makes PranaVayu so powerful into her classes giving students a full mind and body experience. While not on her yoga mat Jamie enjoys hiking and snowboarding the Green Mountain State with her husband, Nico.
