Crofton Yoga offers many different workshops each year. While some of these are part of the Pranakriya School of Yoga Healing Arts training program, many others are in addition to our regular class schedule and suitable for all levels.
These workshops will vary from Yoga Nidra (the yoga of sleep) to Yoga of Sound (chanting workshop) to Yoga for the Weekend Warrior. We also offer workshops for particular populations (Pregnancy and Birth Workshop.)
Most of these special classes are approximately two hours and are offered at convenient times on the weekends. Please see our upcoming workshop schedule below to determine which workshops appeal to you and are most appropriate for you.
The Three Warriors: Action Follows Being with Pam Blum
Date: Friday June 9, 6 – 7:30 pm, $30 by May 9 then $35
Virabhadra’s Pose is also known as the Warrior Pose (there are three variations of Warrior, of which this is customarily numbered I, II and III). What’s really being celebrated in this pose’s name, and held up as an ideal for all, is the “spiritual warrior,” who bravely does battle with the universal enemy, self-ignorance (avidya), the ultimate source of all our suffering. Investigate the strong classical Warrior Postures and explore related postures while learning to adopt them to your needs and limitations.

Yoga & Sound Meditation Workshop with Stacee Johnson
Date: Sunday, July 16, 2017
Cost: $30 ($35 after 6/15)
Prepare for complete relaxation! This dual workshop experience brings yoga and sound together to create a serene environment where you can explore a deep state of relaxation to bring about balance and peace.
We’ll start with a gentle yoga flow using a series of slow, graceful movements to help busy minds quiet and muscle tension release. Focused breathing techniques combine with yoga poses allowing a tranquil start to your relaxation journey. Then, settle into savasana and prepare to experience a heightened state of relaxation through Sound Meditation. Feel yourself slip into a peaceful, meditative state as the calming sound waves of crystal & Himalayan singing bowls, bells, chimes, and vocal tones surround you. Participants are encouraged to dress in comfortable clothing and bring anything that will allow them to easily lay on the floor for the Sound Meditation segment. (i.e. pillow, favorite blanket, etc.) Yoga mats and blankets will be available for use.
No experience is necessary. Come with an open mind, ready to unwind through yoga and the vibrations of sound.
