About Rhonda: Rhonda is a RYT 500 through the training of two master teachers; Jacqui Bonwell of Sacred Seeds Yoga School (200 hours) and Natasha Rizopoulos of Down Under School of Yoga (300 hours). The influence of these two brilliant teachers has shaped her teaching and allowed her to find her own voice. She began her yoga practice several years ago, but at the time viewed it as an additional form of physical fitness.
Rhonda was a fitness professional, cycling teacher, runner, skier, Power Pilates instructor and personal trainer who once dreamed of being a body builder. “It took me a long time to stay for Shavasana, but once I did, I immediately felt the effects of the practice and my life changed profoundly. Yoga helped me to find balance between strength and ease; between fear and ego and between breath and movement. Yoga allowed me to quiet my very busy mind and learn to enjoy the present moment”. Through certification and study on Yoga and Breast Cancer and the inspiration of a dear friend, Rhonda’s first students were undergoing treatment. She worked with students privately and through workshops she developed. Rhonda enjoys teaching public classes and private sessions and does so with intelligence and compassion. She teaches with attention to proper alignment and emphasizes staying present with breath and focus. Finding balance between Sthirha and Sukha (steadiness and ease) is what she strives for in herself and in her teaching. She learns something new from not only every class and workshop she takes, but from every student she meets.
Rhonda owned, managed and taught at her own studio for 3 ½ years and while doing so developed The Beginners Yoga Series. She plans to continue to bring the series to the public. “My goal is to bring the joy and lasting effects of yoga to as many people as possible; hoping to bring positive change to the world, one yogi at a time”.
Rhonda enjoys biking, skiing, paddle boarding, walking her 2 chocolate labs and spending time with her husband and two sons.

Do you wish you could just feel “like your old self” again? Have you been meaning to get back into an exercise routine but are unsure of whether your body can handle it?
Are you desperate for some “you” time?
The postpartum period can be a joyous time but it is also a time when your whole body, spirit, and mind are put under an enormous amount of stress. Childbirth, breast feeding,and caring for a little one can leave the body worn out! Feelings of anxiety, frustration, and excitement can make this sensitive period especially difficult. It is no wonder that women in the postpartum period often do not feel comfortable attending yoga classes with others who are not in the same boat physically or mentally!
This workshop is specifically designed for women who have given birth or adopted a young child in the past year and are interested in doing something positive for themselves.
Led by local perinatal psychologist and mom to a toddler, Lauren Brown, PsyD, with Yoga Alliance certifed yoga teacher and mom to two teenagers, Sidonie Blackett, this two-hour workshop will include both a physical and emotional component via group discussion, asana practice, and meditation. Postnatal Yoga is a wonderful way to center and ground, as well as to release muscle tension.
This workshop is appropriate for women who have given birth vaginally and are 6 weeks postpartum or for women who have given birth by Cesareaand are 8 weeks postpartum. You may attend earlier with your doctor’s permission. Women up to two years postpartum are welcome. We hope you can join us.

Your Unique Physiology - how that relates to asana and beyond.
Why Can't I Do That? Should I Be Able To?
Spend 3 days exploring how your personal physiology, and that of your students, creates the necessity for asana to be customized to best suit each individual’s needs. Each person’s skeleton, musculature, connective tissue, lifestyle and injuries cause a unique situation that once uncovered will create a wiser approach to postures offered in classes as well as how to know when a certain pose just isn’t meant for you. We will break the body down into general regions, look at the poses that impact those regions and learn a wiser and more personal way to approach asana.
Friday, 12/16, 7pm – 9pm The Art of Yoga and Why we pose – Why Pose? Why do we do asana? What are we trying to learn and/or access in these postures?
In this lecture/discussion we will look at the philosophy behind a yoga practice and how to bring that consciousness and understanding to the physical practice. This awareness when layered upon the poses makes for a complete practice that can bring about transformation and growth both in the physical body and one's approach to how they live.
12:30-3:00pm Feet, Knees and Hips - Basic Standing Postures
The positioning of the feet impacts the knees and hips and is a major contributing factor to how standing poses are built and done with personal wisdom. Uncover the various structural differences that impact the foot, knee, legs and hips and how to work with your unique set of circumstances in some of the most common standing poses offered in classes.
Saturday, 12/17 5:00-7:30pm Hips and Spine - Arm Balances, Basic Backbends and Seated Hip Openers
The hip and spine perform a biomechanical dance that, when understood, allows some of the more complex postures such as Arm Balances, Hip Openers and Basic Backbends, to be approached with wisdom and can help prevent unnecessary injuries. Understand how the hip's limitation and position impact the spine, learn underlying reasons for the range of motion in the hip and how to keep your lower back and SI region safe.
Sunday, 12/18 12:30-3:00pm Wrists, Elbows and Shoulders - Basic Weight Bearing Postures
Asana can and does injure students’ wrists, elbows and shoulders far too often, but it’s something that can be avoided. There are some basic skeletal issues that need to be understood in relation to the upper extremities and shoulders as they impact poses where body weight is placed on the hands. Knowing about these issues as well as how the shoulder functions are vital to properly setting up risky weight bearing poses.
5:00-7:30pm Shoulders and Spine - Complex Backbends and Inversions
In a similar fashion to the hip and spine, the shoulder and spine also participate in a partnership that can help strengthen and stabilize those regions preventing injury when functioning properly. Drawing on the information from the earlier modules while adding in newly learned information in this workshop, we will approach inversions and backbends that may have previously been out of reach from an understanding of your own unique structure. With this new understanding you may find these previously elusive postures may suddenly become achievable in the future.
$60/workshop or $260 for the whole weekend,

What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the sister science of yoga – it is the science of life and healthy living – which began in India over 5000 years ago and is known as the “oldest continuously practiced health-care system in the world. Drawn from an understanding of nature’s rhythms and laws, Ayurveda is built around the five elements of ether, air, fire, water, and earth and their roles in the nature world.”
The Ayurvedic approach is to treat each individual by considering his or her own unique psychological, emotional and physical condition. Daily living practices and lifestyle techniques are developed through Ayurveda to bring about a state of balance through true health and wellness. Ayurveda uses asana, natural foods, spices & herbs. Simplicity is encouraged.

Chakra Flow: The Energetic Path to Becoming Your Best Self
Saturday, May 14th 2pm-4pm
$35/$40 day of
Want to channel more peace, joy and confidence for your life? Looking to let go of fears, self doubt and old habits?
Through the use of yoga postures, sound and breathing techniques, you will be guided through the seven chakras to reconnect with yourself and the most grounded powerful version of YOU.
The chakras are the energy centers within all of us responsible for our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. Over-activity or inactivity of this energy leads to imbalances in the body, causing negativity in different areas of life and even mental and physical ailments.
We'll begin with a short lecture which offers an overview of the chakras then move through a sweaty physical practice offering poses, sounds and breath-work specific to each chakra. The information on each one and how it may relate to your own life and body will be offered as you continue to move. Through the continued work with chakra energy, we can become closer to living our most fulfilling and peaceful lives.

This workshop is for anyone who loves the vinyasa practice and would like to continue with this style when they are pregnant and after baby. Being able to find the familiarity of your mat and your flow while pregnant is extremely comforting! If you are or will be pregnant and want to continue your practice but it a safe way join Jillian and Lorraine for this workshop.
From Jillian "After having three very different pregnancies in four short years I had to learn how to modify my practice to fit my new ever-changing pregnant and postpartum body. I loved the flow I knew and wanted to continue with it instead of a more traditional style parental class but I wanted to do it safely."
From Lorraine, "I felt strong during my pregnancies and it felt important for me to continue with a powerful and empowering practice. I also wanted to make sure my practice was safe while remaining strong. I had to take the time to learn about modifications in order to continue my practice and I am excited to continually share all that I have learned. Yoga is the best tool I have had during pregnancy, labor and motherhood.

This is warrior Joey, Jillian's nephew and one of the many strong yogi souls battling cancer and being cared for at Boston Children's Hospital. Even at the age of four Joey uses deep "yoga breaths" to combat nausea and practices yoga with his warrior mom whenever he can.
Through Yoga Reaches Out and in this special class we will practice to stand in solidarity with Joey and all the kids in our Lexington community and beyond who rely on Boston Children's Hospital.
We will gather together with the intention of bringing some breathing room into the lives of families, friends and our littlest heroes who stand on the front lines battling pediatric cancer. They embody what it means to be warriors and they are often keeping their heads down as they prepare for each treatment, each procedure, each and every day. They put life in perspective.
Please join Jillian and Lorraine to raise funds and awareness for Yoga Reaches Out and Boston Children's Hospital for on Friday, April 29th 7:30-8:45pm. Class will be set to music, suggested donation $20. This class will leave us feeling empowered by breath, community and deep purpose.

Find Your Dharma
It's time to create the life you love and live for each and everyday. Are you feeling stuck in your current career path and need a change? Do you know what you really want to do but money and people's perceptions of you is standing in your way?
In this workshop, we will explore mental training techniques that will allow you to process and let go of this fear so you can take that big leap and do what you were meant to do. This session will include meditation, discussion, journaling and a vinyasa yoga style flow class. All experience levels are welcomed.
This workshop will be led by Boston-based yoga teacher and run coach, Cara Gilman. Cara worked in the financial services industry for more than 6 years before making the leap to start her own business. She knows first-hand the fear of change and is excited to share the techniques she learned and carries with her as she continues to pursue her passion each and everyday.
Flip your perspective, build strength, courage, and self-confidence. Often students rely on shoulders, grit, and unnecessary force when learning how to move in and out of inversions and arm balances, when what is really needed is an intelligent warm-up and some specific alignment and technical tweaks. We’ll address some common fears, go over some of the most common mistakes, and tackle preparatory poses, proper set-up and learn how to balance on arms and go upside down safely. Be prepared to have a lot of fun! $30 in advance $35 day of.
