Falling into Autumn with Grace

As the crispness of the air begins to take root and the leaves on the trees begin to change color, we welcome in the fall season.  The predominant qualities of fall are cool, light, dry, windy, and unpredictable.  The cooler winds whip through the streets, which can sometimes leave us spinning, especially with the busyness that often comes this time of year.  In this month’s workshop we will focus on balancing postures and finding the quality of grounding as well as falling gracefully, literally and figuratively.  Come away with tools to help you stay balanced during this exciting, windy season.

Calia Marshall is a yoga instructor (E-RYT 200, RYT 500), musician, dancer, choreographer, doula, Reiki practitioner and educator. She has been teaching movement and healing practices to children and adults for 19 years. Calia received her 200 hour yoga teaching certification from Laughing Lotus Yoga Center in 2002 and her 300 hour advanced certification through Ritam Healing Arts with Saul David Raye in 2015. She has deepened her yoga study through working with Seane Corn, Hala Khouri, Suzanne Sterling, Cathy Calderon, Johnathan FitzGordon, Alison West and Kevin & Erin Maile O’Keefe (Circus Yoga). In 2014 she founded Brown Sugar: Yoga for Folks of Color, a yoga and mindfulness practice and community in Brooklyn. Her mantra music band, Kirtan Soul Revival, has been traveling around the country leading call and response devotional singing and singing & social justice workshops since 2011. Calia finds constant inspiration from the magic that occurs when communities join together to practice yoga, to dance, to sing, and to play. Her passion is to use these forms to create healing spaces from a social justice lens. In sharing her yoga practice, Calia strives to honor the roots of yoga, while making it relevant for the people she is sharing it with. She is so grateful to all of her teachers and is honored to share her curiosity, fascination, love of movement and music, and magic-making with her community.
