February 1st through the 3rd at Dig Yoga in Lambertville
We are thrilled to have BOTH Professor Douglas Brooks and Noah Mazé join us for our annual Winter Yoga Fest. This year our focus will be Aranyaki, Mother of the Forest. She appears as a presiding influence, there to offer us her protections and to remind us especially of our vulnerabilities, how we must care for ourselves, for each other, and for the least among us who cannot protect themselves. It is in these vulnerabilities and openings that we discover too our strengths and opportunities. Join Douglas and Noah as they share their wisdom and passion for the text. Noah will be offering the asana portion to keep your body vibrant, as Douglas pours these beautiful teachings into your heart and mind.

May Louie first took yoga in college to fulfill a Phys-Ed requirement and immediately fell in love. She, unfortunately, did not continue with her practice but reconnected with it when she retired from her corporate job in 2002 and has since become a serious yoga enthusiast. After her second retirement last year, she completed her 200-hour RYT certification, studying with Dina Crosta, Ellen Mosko, and Jamie Segal Hanley, with a focus on alignment based flow.
