Hitting Stride

The cultural enigma we collectively survived over the past few years made it uniquely difficult for in-person mind-body practices to flourish. For me as someone who is heavily invested in the magic these practices provide this presented unique difficulties. But now, after having taught twice a week again for several months, I feel an increasing sense of ease and delight coming back to both my personal practice and my teaching.

Weekly Classes

Consistency is a key element of my engagement with Yoga. I continue to offer two weekly classes.

On Monday evenings from 6 - 7:30 I am teaching Hatha Yoga in the Arcata Presbyterian Church Upstairs Gym. I recently ordered some new mats and blankets that will be available for use. This class is a therapeutically inclined strong physical practice.

On Saturday mornings 10:30 - Noon I teach my Hatha/Nidra combo class at Om Shala on South Gst in Arcata. This class leverages the classic yoga formula of move then be still and combines an enlivening postural Hatha practice with the deep rest and stillness available through the extended savasana with Nidra.

            Sonic Dream Yoga Nidra

            My collaborative Yoga Nidra + Soundbath monthly Saturday evening events with Shemaia have been going very well. We have sold out the last 2 months. We have also begun co-facilitating private Nidra + Sound sessions as well.


            There is space in the next event which will be held this Saturday November 12th 7-9pm at Om Shala Yoga on South Gst in Arcata. Asking price is $35 and space is limited to 15 or so participants. Contact me to register and/or arrange an appropriate price for you

            Contact Improvisation
            I am very happy to say I have began teaching and hosting dance again recently. Contact Improv is a practice very close to my heart and It was uniquely difficult to practice for the last few years. I was recently invited up to Cal Poly Humboldt's Dance 400 Bodyworks class to teach a workshop. And after a long break me and a few friends have brought weekly public CI Jams back to the Humboldt Bay. This began the last 4 weeks on Thursday nights 7 - 9 in the Arcata Presbyterian Church. Moving forward I am hosting jams on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays in Arcata and I am very excited to practice with my friends at Synapsis in Eureka at their new jam 7-9:30 on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month. Info and updates on jam schedule and location will be posted on www.arcatacontactimprov.fun

            Always feel free to email me if you have any questions or interesting opportunities,

            I love you all,
            Yogi Jeffrey
