Special Classes, Workshops & Retreats

Workshops & Retreats

Workshops give you the opportunity to study, practice and refine a specific aspect of Yoga, with direct instruction from an experienced teacher. Workshops are an excellent way to compliment and inspire your regular practice, and bring new skills and insights onto your yoga mat, and into your daily life.

Retreats – take yourself out of your daily life and immerse yourself into your yoga practice. Retreats offer you the opportunities to unplug, unwind and sink in! Many retreats offered, allow you to plan your time around scheduled yoga classes, but you may also have the option to follow a more structured wellness itinerary. Sanctuary organized retreats often offer on-site life coaching, Ayurveda consultations, light therapy, sound therapy, journaling and discussions for self-discovery. Yoga retreats help you break away from familiar routines and help you to move out of your comfort zone into a space of growth, new people and new places.


Each month we will offer a different workshop in varied disciplines on Thursday evenings. From beginner’s yoga to mindfulness meditation.  Participants will need to sign up and pre-pay for series in advance. No drop in’s please. 6:45 – 8pm

Back To Basics Workshop with Guest Teacher Denelle Numis

Saturday June 10th 9-11 a.m.

In a world that glorifies yogis and yoginis with the most inspiring peak postures, it is easy to get caught up in the expectations of a yoga practice and lose sight of the true yogic path: to honor your journey both on and off the mat. Despite the presumptive pressure to show up as an advanced asana yogi, a strong foundational yoga practice is paramount to an advanced asana yoga practice.

Join Denelle Numis, E-RYT 500, for a 2-hour all levels yoga practice to get back to the basics. We will explore various fundamental yoga postures that will hone your yogi skills in order to achieve many more advanced poses.
Come get back to the basics! Investment $30



Awareness, Attention & Assistance: A Hands on Assists Workshop for Yoga Teachers

Saturday June 10th 4-6 p.m.

Are you a yoga teacher who feels more comfortable using your voice than your hands? While strong and succinct verbal cues can be paramount to solid yoga instruction, hands on assistance can elevate the student’s yoga journey and enhance the student-teacher relationship on the mat.

Join Denelle Numis, E-RYT 500, for a workshop highlighting various hands on assists that can both modify and enhance the student’s physical asana practice. You will leave this workshop with numerous hands on assist techniques and the confidence to skillfully assist your students in your yoga classes.

This workshop can be counted toward your required continuing education hours with Yoga Alliance. Investment $50
