NY AcroFest ~ 6th Annual ~ Aug 11-14
Every summer in New York City we gather AcroYoga clans from East Coast, USA and beyond, and celebrate this community and this practice in the city that never sleeps.
This year the two main days Saturday and Sunday are at the amazing Chelsea Piers on the Hudson River. As before, Friday Acro tours through our wondrous city let us spread wings at the sites of wondrous city landmarks, led by AcroFest teachers and accompanied by AcroFest photographers. Friday eve my open level class will be followed by a special JAM welcoming AcroFest with discounted prices; Saturday we hold a sweet Bodyworks & Dessert party/Thai and therapeutics Jam. And Sunday ends with a giant Sheep Meadow, Central Park Acro Jam open to the public.
There are tiers of pricing including pre-fest and post-fest special workshops. Register with my name MARY for $5 off. I am happy to teach a beginner-intermediate standing flow Saturday afternoon with Lex Peters from Philly, and a cool YogaSlacker Acro flow Sunday morning with Mateo Daniel from Austin! Come Friday, come Sat + Sun, come to NY AcroFest 6th Edition this August!

Divine Play Festival ~ 8th Annual ~ Oct 6-8
A-a-a-a-nd we're off! Divine Play AcroYoga Festival in Portland at the huge Oregon Convention Center welcomes annually the largest global gathering of AcroYogis everywhere! This year our 8th Annual, it is October 2-8, with the Main Festival happening over the 3-day weekend Friday to Sunday.
There is free child care, there is therapeutics and acrobatics, there is multiple simultaneous classes of all levels, types, and teachers from the world over!
There are trunk shows with cool merchandise, there is a Saturday spectacular entertainment night, there is break dancing for all, from our own Mendel R. of New York City! There is a therapeutics pavilion where you can go and get your body some much needed healing throughout your day! 
I am delighted to teach with my New York homegirl Linda, our own intermediate acrobatic flow Malinda Wheel, and to wind up the Festival teaching with my other NY homie Bassam, our Thai Ninja flow that dances fluidly around our receiver as we lift and rock and flow their grateful bodies into ease and bliss on Sunday afternoon!
And oh, in case I forgot to say so, in case it escaped me: there is connection. There 
is community.  If there weren't, it wouldn't be 

AcroYoga; it would just be acrobatics. 
Fine enough for some, sure! For me however, High will always modify Union.  Acro will forever uplift Yoga. And the more Yogis practice it, the more so...
Come and make some High Union with me in Portland.  MARY10 code gets a 10% discount when you register, for a limited number of registrants! Get yours now!

Catskills Retreat
Sept 22-24 weekend, 2017 ~ Leaves are falling, air is crisp, it is my birthday! And we are loving our #11 delicious Yoga Weekend Catskills Retreat at Wagging Tail Yoga Farm in Bethel, NY.

Our unique blend of Yoga styles from Restorative to Vinyasa to AcroYoga to Thai to Slackline Yoga to Nidra meets all levels with delight, ease, challenge, and balance.

Yoga Nidra Mondays
Imagine a flotation tank of tranquility, and a directed dream sequence where you may rest deeply your physical body, and clear and balance your mind for more refreshed and energized living. Yoga Nidra is an ancient tantric science of meditation in savasana led just by a teacher's voice. My Monday Nidra classes are 1:00-2:00 starting in August. Come taste; if you are not a Pure East member, email me for a guess pass.
Restorative Treat
Restorative Yoga is a magic bullet antidote to the stress of modern living.
I recommend a weekly Restorative practice for a busy life, and more if you need it.
For a deluxe hit of restoring, come join one of my 2-hour seasonal restorative treats. We balance all 7 chakras through gentle poses, meditation, music, aromatherapy, nurturing touch. and you have a takeaway aromatherapy gift.
The next one on the schedule,
Restorative Holiday Treat, is December 9th at Pure East, 2-4PM. Restore with a friend and get even more happiness through mutual connection!
Reserve your spots now.
