Marty Stuart

Hard Rock Hotel and Casino – 111 3rd St. – Friday, February 17th, 2017- 8:00pm

If you were to give country music an address, you might say it’s at the corner of sacred and profane, two doors up from the blues and folk, and just across the street from gospel, R&B and rock ‘n’ roll. And on a deeper emotional and spiritual level, it resides where Saturday night meets Sunday morning. No one understands these coordinates better than Marty Stuart. For over forty years, the five-time Grammy winning multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, photographer and historian has been building a rich legacy at this very crossroads. On his latest release with his band The Fabulous Superlatives, the double-disc Saturday Night & Sunday Morning, Stuart captures all the authentic neon and stained-glass hues of country music – from love and sex to heartache and hardship to family and God – in twenty-three tracks.

He has co-starred with Sylvester Stallone, Rachael McAdams, Steve Buscemi, David Carradine, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Kelsey Grammer, David Spade, Kevin James, Chris Rock and M.

This workshop will be held on a Saturday from 8:15 AM – 2:30 PM. It will include a Hot Yoga Class right away in the morning followed by a day of discussion. Please bring your lunch!

Be Embodied- Capturing Your Essence

Be Yoga Studio – 1101 4th St. – Monday, February 20th, 2017- 11:00am

{be}Studio is collaborating with Sarah Ann Photography to bring women an opportunity to explore their sensuality and their sexuality in a safe and supportive environment. 

It is a time when women are becoming more empowered to show up, share their voice and express their bodies in ways that have been previously looked down upon. Our bodies, our femine nature and sexuality is a sacred part of our lives and it is something to explore and share with those we love and trust, not something to fear and hide. 

In this event, we will be offering 6 Sacred Body Sessions where you will have a 10 minute Flow Session with Jackie to help you get into your body and then step in front of the camera to express what you feel is your truest essence. This session can be done in whatever format you choose – whether it is in your favorite outfit or completely in the raw naked form! It can be done with your partner or maybe your truest essence is as an expecting mother. There is no right or wrong here – it is all you! You will receive a private online gallery of your images from the session to have with you but the real gift will be in the experience as you realize just how divine your essence is! 

Each participant will also receive a shirt of their choice from the Yoga and Body Image Colaition’s Yoga is for Every Body campaign!

The sessions will be $100 and all proceeds will go towards the organization: “Off the Mat Into the World”.
Off the Mat Into the World® (OTM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to bridging yoga and activism. Founded in 2007, OTM uses the tools of yoga, meditation, and self-inquiry to inspire leaders to create conscious, sustainable change. We define activism as an act of standing for solidarity, equality, justice, and freedom for all.
