"Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine"  is an Irish saying that translates literally as "people live in each others shadows". Meaning, we rely on each other for shelter.


On December 22nd, the darkest time of the year, the full moon will be at home in heartfelt Cancer. Our receptivity is enhanced, our insight magnified for conscious intention setting.

Join Cathy French for this sharing circle to honor the beginning of the sun's return journey and the gradual return of light with timeless fire ritual, gentle movement and yoga nidra to relax deeply into this astronomical transition.

Enamored with how yoga can remind us of who we most truly are, Lori infuses her classes with a heartfelt joy for being alive, intelligent sequencing, philosophies of kindness, and eclectic, soaring soundtracks. She has studied with her primary teacher, Max Strom, since 1996, has also trained with Erich Schiffmann and Sherry Brourman, and is happily indebted to her first teacher, Steve Ross, for showing her you were allowed to turn up the music and laugh during yoga. She now teaches at Yoga Nest Venice and, occasionally, up in Arcata when she goes to visit. In the rest of her life, Lori is a fiction writer with an MPA (Masters of Professional Writing) from USC. She has studied ballroom, jazz, Brazilian and West African dance, worked as a marine biologist and expedition leader on a boat, booked music and slung coffee in a Hollywood coffeehouse/nightclub, and taught science and language arts (the subject formerly known as English) to countless kids. She co-founded Om Shala Yoga in Arcata and is the present founder of Yoga:edit, offering editing services for the yoga community.

Harness the Power of Your Teaching Voice :: A Workshop for Yoga Teachers with Lori Snyder

As yoga teachers, much of how we hold space for transformation has to do with how we use our voices, what words we choose, and what we say. If you’re looking to empower your teaching voice, these two hours will help you do just that. You will learn and practice ways to use your voice and your own words in order to both communicate clearly and give your students an extraordinary experience. Open to all yoga teachers of any style. Please bring a notebook, pen, and mat, and wear yoga clothes. If you have specific questions relating to voice, feel free email them in advance to lori@lorisnyderyoga.com

Saturday October 13th from 2:00-4:00

$55

(Also! Don’t miss Lori’s Groove Yoga class on Saturday evening!)

Full Moon Circle :: Reflection, Ritual, Rest with Cathy French and Jess Bell

Full Moon Circle :: Reflection, Ritual, Rest with Cathy French and Jess Bell

With every ending in life comes a mighty release. This is the energy that accompanies each full moon as the cycle reaches its peak, alive in its fullness.

This full moon in Aries accompanies with it an impulsive, fiery quality that may influence us to be reactive in our communications. We may find a stronger desire for space and the freedom to more fully express ourselves with maturity. 

In this women's gathering Jess Bell and Cathy French will guide us in a space of considered, calm expression.  Jess will guide us through meditation and movement that will awaken clear communication and strengthen our personal vision.  Cathy will share astrology insights and lead a soothing Yoga Nidra to assist in calming our fiery impulses.

Please wear comfortable clothes and bring a journal and pen.  You are welcome to bring any sacred item for our altar.

Sunday, September 23rd

7pm- 9.30pm

$20 before Sept. 19th/$25 after

You can register by paying Jess, Cathy or Suzanne in cash/check at class or you can pay with PayPal here.


Jess and Cathy both have deep love for holding space for women in their paths of expansion and growth.

Cathy is passionate about serving the needs of women through her teaching and healing work. She can't get enough of creating sacred space and believes that gathering in circle is a forgotten but vital element of human life.

IMG-20180808-WA0008.jpg

From a young age, Jess remembers always having influential women in her life. Growing up with her mom's three sisters, a loving stepmother, female friends both older and younger, she feels her life is a reflection of womanly love and wisdom passed down from many. Creating a new home here in the redwoods, it became clear the desire for meaningful, supportive and nourishing women was calling. She is delighted to bring sisters together through an intentional and continual space at Tosha.
