During these chaotic times, it is more important than ever to keep ourselves both mentally and physically healthy. Working on your craft, like knitting or spinning, can be very meditative as it encourages you to focus on the present and keep a clear mind. Although they are generally considered low-impact, the repetitive movements associated with these activities can cause injuries over time. We have used our yoga expertise to develop a series of simple exercises to prevent these common maladies. In this one hour virtual class, we will play with simple yoga stretches and breathing techniques to enhance your knitting, crocheting, spinning or sewing. No matter the craft or level you are at, these yoga practices can help you craft for longer.

Pranayama is Sanskrit for Breath Work. Kate and Liza found that making this light and airy shawl felt like taking a breath of fresh air and so they named it the Pranayama Shawl. Come join Kate Madden from Ragline Knits for a fun knitting class where she teaches us how to knit the Pranayama Shawl using beautiful organic hand spun cotton yarns from Handspun Hope. The Pranayama shawl uses simple knit stitches and yarnovers to create a versatile shawl perfect for our warm Texas weather.
