Location: Be Yoga Carmel

Sign Up Now!

“If a woman sits with folded hands in her lap for a few minutes every day, and feels she is a container so vast that she contains the whole Universe, she will never feel weak or have any problems. There is nothing beyond woman except God.”
-Yogi Bhajan
Women are divine energy, spirit and power. We are also holders of the home, our families and communities. We work hard. And we need each other. We need to sit and share time and space. As women, we are hard-wired to give and serve. And to be the best versions of ourselves, we must take time for ourselves and our spirit.

Join Sarah Olin — Charlotte-based Mama, coach and yogi — for a monthly donation-based meditation circle created especially for women. One evening per month, we will gather together to practice a new meditation to lift our spirits and get us connected to ourselves. There will be a 20-30 minute meditation followed by sharing.

Appropriate for all levels; beginners welcome.

Suggested Donation $5-$15

Next Dates: 8/28 9/25 10/30 11/27

Location: Be Yoga Dilworth

Sign Up Now!

Foundation Training is a movement program created by Dr. Eric Goodman that’s designed to restore your body’s natural strength, balance, and alignment by utilizing ideal biomechanics. FT helps to correct structural and mechanical breakdown caused by modern adaptations, enabling your body to properly support itself structurally and move more muscularly. This program is not a temporary remedy, but a systematic solution that creates long-term health and structural resiliency. It’s not designed to replace your existing exercise or yoga practice, but rather enhance it and help you find more balance and stability within your body.

FT will teach how to move more efficiently, evenly absorbing the weight of your body, insulating your joints from unnecessary friction and damage. Learning how to properly strengthen and restore the integration of the Posterior Chain can help you improve posture, alleviate chronic back pain, enhance athletic performance, reduce injury risk, and help you move better in everything you do.

All ages and abilities can benefit from Foundation Training and no equipment is necessary. Your body adapts quickly to these natural patterns, so much that you begin reinforcing them throughout your day without having to think about it. This is truly sustainable exercise that offers a modern remedy for our modern movement deficiencies.
