There's something about the last weekend in January that makes you want to recommit to your resolutions, no? If you're determined to get into a handstand this year — even if you end up using the wall for an assist — the clock is ticking. Check out these area yoga classes and workshops and feel good knowing your last weekend of the month ended on a sweaty note.


Balance Your Chakras with Polly Christy
Urban Yoga
6:45-8:45 p.m.

If you're feeling uninspired, stuck in a rut, or paralyzed by anxiety, your chakras are probably out of wack. If you're thinking "WTF is a chakra?" trust us, you're not alone.  Think of a chakra as a spinning ball of energy that corresponds to major nerve centers in the body. In this workshop, participants will be led by certified 800 hour teacher Polly Christy through movements that correspond to these seven different chakras. Throughout the class you will "be empowered to move past the fluctuations of mind and emotion into high state of consciousness."

11 a.m.
$10 yoga/ $15 yoga & beer
It's OK to treat yourself after twisting (or attempting to twist) your body into pretzel-like shapes. At Low Tide Brewing Darcy Mahan leads an hour long class open to all levels, even to those who have never taken a yoga class before. Pay an extra $5 to sip on a pint after class — we can attest that a Big Dock Dopplebock tastes especially delightful after a yoga sesh.
