WELCOME TO THE HVWC CALENDAR: home of all our upcoming readings, events and workshops. You can view by list or calendar (see right menu to choose). Click the colored tabs below to show only specific options. Our workshops run as multi-session series or one-day “intensives.” Note, we list the multi-session courses on the first day they meet only. The full dates of the session are described in the course descriptions. You would need to scroll back to the start date if you needed to enroll for something already underway. But do let us know if you want to join something in midstream since we need the blessing of the instructor. Questions? Email us.

Restorative Yoga & Creative Expression with Angela Derecas Taylor (in person at HVWC)

November 19 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


This workshop is 3–hours in duration. The first hour and a half is a Restorative Yoga class suitable for adults of all ages and abilities. The second hour and a half will be dedicated to creative expression of the participants choice: mandala coloring, vision collaging or open writing from prompts. Teacher provides all props for the Restorative Yoga and crafting materials to include crayons, colored markers and pencils, a selection of printouts of mandalas of varying difficulty from very easy to very intricate, blank heavy stock collage paper, glue sticks, scissors, magazines and other crafty things, and writing pads / implements (although participants are welcome to bring their laptops for writing if preferred). For the Yoga practice, participants need ONLY bring their own Yoga mat and a pillow in a pillow case. There is a maximum of 8 participants in this group.

Writer. Foodie. Yogini.
