Welcome Spring

Save the Date!

Saturday April 13th


Everyone is invited to Lighten Up's Transition Celebration from 24 pm on 4/13 for a multimedia open house.


Join us as we celebrate the healing space that our 60 Biltmore Ave. location has offered for so many years. Lighten Up opened its doors in the current location in 1987!


Now we are opening a new chapter. Lighten Up will become part of One Center Yoga, and we will be moving over to a newly renovated space right next to One Center's current loation at 120 Coxe Ave. Cindy Dollar will be the new director. All of the teachers (including Lillah), the schedule, and all class packages and prices will follow us to the new location.


Please drop in anytime between 2 and 4 pm on 4/13 to celebrate with us! There will be refreshments, music, and a multimedia presentation of Lighten Up's history, including news clips from over the years, our own videos and photos, and more. The celebration will also mark the release of Lillah's long-awaited home practice book, Healing Our Backs with Yoga.

Friday 3/22


12:00 – 2:00 Purna Yoga Flow: Sweat and Glow

The beauty of the Purna Yoga Power Series is the smooth, flowing movements coordinated with the breath. It incorporates a set of poses designed to cultivate external strength and internal power. All levels.


2:30 – 5:30 Understanding Inversions

Inversions soothe the nervous system, give us an opportunity to reverse the aging process, and allow us to get a reversed perspective, both physically and psychologically. They must be done with a focused alignment and an understanding of the correct muscles so that there is no long-term injury. Come learn how to do your inversion poses safely and effectively. All levels, but we suggest at least 3 months asana experience.


7:00  8:30 Yoga of Relationships in Purna Yoga (only $45!)

Our life becomes harmonious when there is a feeling of connection and peace in our relationships. Aadil will discuss how Yoga teaches us to bring harmony and fulfillment into our lives.



Saturday 3/23


10:30 – 1:30 Detox and Recharge with Twists and Backbends

Twists increase the gastric fire and detoxify the digestive system, thereby improving digestion, plus they release the tiny inter-vertebral muscles along the spine, freeing the spine for backbends. When done correctly, backbends bring joy, strength, focus, and power. All levels.


3:00 – 6:00 Yoga Nidra*** 

The mind, body, and emotions are most effectively brought to rest when Shavasana is done progressively and systematically. Purna Yoga Nidra is unique among all the Yoga Nidras, in that you focus on and create powerful internal connections to Spirit to help manifest your dreams. Please bring a soft pillow. All levels. ***If you have a cough or a cold please do not attend this workshop, because any movement will disturb others.



Sunday 3/24


9:00 – 12:00 Depressurizing High Blood Pressure

In Purna Yoga there are two types of high blood pressure: one pent up, and the other externally obvious. These have to be treated differently. You will learn asana techniques, Ayurvedic and Chinese nutritional miracles, and the basics of Purna Yoga Meditation to help deal with and reverse your hypertension. For students and teachers.
