Exhale Holiday Stress


Led by Meghan

Meghan McGinty’s life on the mat has spilled over into her personal and professional life.

A former Peace Corps Volunteer and Advanced English teacher at State College Area High School, she has introduced the breathing practices known as Prana Vidya to both her students and colleagues at the high school. She opens her classes with the lights off, leading students through a 2-minute meditation. “They get to hear the silence in their own heads—and they’re really unfamiliar with that silence.”

Meg Headshot copy.jpg

For her fellow teachers, she leads weekly after-school guided meditations, “an eye in the hurricane” that helps them get through to Friday. 

She credits TriYoga for strengthening her relationship with her colleagues, students and partner.

Calming the Chaos: Yoga for Those Affected by the Family Disease of Addiction

Picture for Calming Chaos .jpg

Led by Kashi, Teacher in Residence


While many of us know that addiction/alcoholism is a disease, too few recognize it as a “family disease,” which may emotionally, spiritually and often physically affect those surrounding the “addict.” Family members and loved ones begin to develop their own form of the disease (ie: PTSD, stress, anxiety, co-dependency, insomnia, shame and fear to name a few) in an attempt to deal with the chaos of what is happening in their lives.

In this workshop we will be looking at how we have been affected by this cunning and baffling disease and how using recovery tools such as the 12 Steps of Recovery along with the teachings of yoga can help in the journey toward healing, balance and a life worth living. 

This program is open to all who live with or have lived with the problem of alcohol/addiction in a friend, loved one or themselves personally. If you are struggling and suffering, if you feel the pain, stress and loneliness of life, if you notice there are behaviors you resort to that aren’t serving you—and you are ready to say, “there must be a better way”—then this program is for you.

Please note: we require alcohol/chemically dependent participants to have at 30 days of continuous sobriety. Those with eating disorders and behavioral addictions (relationships, gambling, spending, etc.) are welcome and should have enough stability to attend this 2.5 hour workshop.

Event Price (as you are able): $30-$50
