Autumnal Equinox: 108 Sun Salutations

The Autumnal Equinox marks the transition from summer into fall where daylight is shortened, and there’s a turn inward to reflect and set intentions. In yogic traditions, equinoxes are celebrated with 108 Sun Salutations: a classic sequence that works out old energy and emotions by linking breath with moment. Teachers from Hot Yoga C’Ville, FlyDog, and Common House’s Michael Okusa will guide us through 108 salutes to the sun on the roof as Member Jason Judy spins tracks to deepen the flow. In the spirit of fresh beginnings and letting go, enjoy some yoga-themed cocktails afterward as we raise a glass to the new season ahead. ▸ Free, Guests welcome; RSVP to ensure a spot

Book Club Meetup

Beloved author Elizabeth Gilbert of Eat, Pray, Love returns to the literary stage just in time for our relaunch of Book Club. Following Tuesday’s wine tasting, we’ll gather in Social Hall for a preliminary meet-and-greet before reconvening on October 29th to discuss Gilbert’s new City of Girls. Unconventional and provocative, the book traces the life of protagonist, Vivian Morris, from her expulsion from Vassar in the 1940s through her years living in NYC where adventure, glamour, and theatre provide a springboard into strong woman she becomes. Rich with powerful wisdom and love, this story will stay with you long after the pages end. ▸ Free members and guest. Books available to purchase on site.

Bridge Room Session

Angelica Garcia’s rich sonics are electrifying. At 17, her family moved from Los Angeles to Virginia’s Eastern Shore where she, influenced by parish houses and magnolia trees, began penning music that later became her first full-length album, Medicine for Birds, recorded by Warner Bros. Her style of Americana-blues mixed with indie-rock captured the attention of producer Charlie Peacock (the Civil Wars, Switchfoot) who brought her music into the national spotlight. She has since toured with Delta Rae, was featured in The New York Times, and now will share her music with us at a very special Bridge Room session that you won’t want to miss. ▸ Free members, RSVP to ensure a spot.
