When Abbe isn’t teaching, trekking or balancing on her hands, she spends her days working at family owned garden center where she is surrounded by nature and motivated by growth and transformation. Drawing on her love for the natural world, her devotion of the practice and her wanderess soul she now travels that passion across the world to teach amongst nature’s wild canvas.

Break Up / Break Through

Building a yoga practice balanced in strength and flexibility means we must dig deep & search for any missing pieces. Most often we don’t need to look far as we are not lost, maybe just wandering a little off track. In this series we will learn how to truly develop a balanced practice. If you feel weakness you will learn how to cultivate strength. If you feel inflexible you will learn how to encourage mobility. Here we will uncover the simple tricks to help us break up with habit energy and discover the path to breakthrough. We will discuss the most common yoga setbacks, injuries & holds, specifically in the shoulders, lower back, and hamstrings, and how to honor them so that we get the most out of our practice.

This workshop is 60 minutes long and costs $25.

The Fundamentals of Flight

Arm Balances are beautiful ways to test our limits and explore our edges. They challenge us mentally and physically by forcing us to slow down, find strength, courage and trust. With directed energy and good intention, you will be amazed at what your body can do.

During this workshop we will build the basic framework for safe and sustainable flight, specifically working with the anatomy and alignment in the shoulder girdle, core and bandhas. While exploring balancing we will focus on proper alignment and bone-stacking, training techniques and exercise drills to strengthen and open your body for the next level of practice. Each participant will receive some one-on-one coaching from Abbe to meet individual needs.

This workshop is 90 minutes long and costs $50.
