What we're about

There's so much stimulation in life it's easy to get side tracked with work, and random engagements, let alone keeping up with things at home. When we get wrapped in the everyday or in distant thoughts we can sometimes disconnect with the moment, our inner selves, and the sacred energy of our mother earth.

What was originally called Organic Yoga is now being reintroduced as Vanaspati Yoga. Vanaspati is a sanskrit word that refers to the entire kingdom of plants. Its literal translation is, "Lord of the Forest" and is known as a deity presiding over the forest with its thousand golden branches. As we start off classes again in new light, I'd really like to offer an opportunity of awareness and healing by grounding ourselves back to nature and finding our deep connection of Vanaspati within.

Vanaspati Yoga will take us outdoors in natural settings and/or deeply focused within ourselves with the loving integration of plants in some shape or form. There's something humbling yet powerful about our natural world that offers a sense of peace and tranquility. So when you pair yoga with this powerful presence of our mother earth, I believe it can bring profound effects of healing and peace...at the minimum, a moment to completely dedicate to yourself:)

So, I invite you to join me in Vanaspati Yoga to find your inner being and tune in with the cosmic memory of our mama earth!

Yoga classes will be Restorative, Yin or Hatha based, connecting breath with movement and ending most practices with mindful meditation. Meetups may include hikes that take us to mountain tops, oceans or underneath the full moon...just choose any event that sparks your interest! Hikes will vary on length depending on where the Meetup is, just watch for Meetup details as they come up! Classes are offered at reasonable prices based on the event and are available to all levels making it a good way to try yoga in an informal setting whether you are a beginner or a seasoned yogi.

I'm excited and honored to have this opportunity to share these experiences and am really looking forward to meeting other nature loving yogis!

Peace and love,

Miho

Hatha & Yin Musical Serenade with Miho Watanabe & Live Music from Jaryd Block

Join us in a night immersed in cannabis enhanced yoga and meditation, serenaded by an incredible live musical performance by Jaryd Block. We will dive deep into the wells of our physical bodies to feel the articulation of slow movement and the fullness of stillness with each breath and melodic array of sound. The asanas at this gathering will be Hatha and Yin based and will include some standing asanas, but mostly long held yoga postures on the floor. This gathering is intended for anyone, wherever you are in your yoga journey, whether you are new to yoga, or maybe self-conscious of doing it in a public setting, or on your path back to yoga after a long break for whatever the reason may be. If you feel called to experience a gentle and slow, yet dynamic yoga class with the enhancement of plants, this is the gathering for you. This live musical performance created by Jaryd and his guitar will not only allow us to enjoy this one of a kind experience in its most raw and creative form, but also allows us to feel the space of vibrational looping sound within each subjected pose. We are very excited for this collaboration and hope you are too. Jaryd Block is a Central Coast native, currently residing in San Francisco. Through deep improvisation, Jaryd seeks the sacred balance of harmony, melody, breathe and the ethereal. His music is a celebration of personal gratitude, inner strength, presence of mind and the power of now. We will be providing our traditional selection of cannabis offerings with many different strains, cartridges, edibles and tinctures.
