We invite you to bring a mat, your water bottle and your best buds. Join us for weekly installments of our complimentary morning yoga classes. Expect a different teacher and style each week. Arrive at 8:15 AM so you have plenty of time to meet the teacher, fill your bottle, place your mat + sink into your own awesomeness.

Spring Skincare Renewal

Spring Skincare Renewal

Date: 
Sunday, April 2, 2017 - 11:30am to 12:30pm

Renew your complexion and shed dull, blah, dry or congested winter skin.  The change of seasons can trigger skin issues, so four times a year (at the change of each season) it’s especially important to give your skin some love.  The key to healthy, radiant skin is to also counteract the effects of the previous season and customize your home skincare rituals to meet your skin’s ongoing needs.  As winter winds down and spring arrives, there are a number of common skin issues to manage.  Skin may be puffy, dehydrated, inflamed, irritated, dry, or congested at this time of year.
