The Juicy Ladies’ Circle: A monthly gathering dedicated to feminine embodiment, nourishment and community
The Juicy Ladies’ Circle is dedicated to women who want to gather in all our realness, rawness, power and depth and to come more fully alive within our bodies, hearts and minds. As women have been doing since the beginning of time, we gather within the potent container of the circle, each woman equal, bringing her wisdom, light and questions into the collective womb of the tribe. Whatever is ready to be cultivated, birthed or transformed, can do so with simple rituals, support and reverence. We’ll move our bodies, expand our breath, meditate, play and relax, while enjoying nourishing herbal teas, chocolate, healthy snacks, and if you desire, organic cannabis. Together we will expand our care for ourselves and each other, increase our awareness of our beautiful bodies, and welcome in greater embodiment of pleasure, sensuality, creativity and joy. You’ll head home feeling enlivened, inspired and supported by our tribe.
Each circle will have its own theme, with a unique practice and topic to be explored. They will all include social time, yoga and meditation, ritual, inquiry and simple delicacies fit for goddesses.
Conscious use of edible and vaporized cannabis is optional, as for some women this medicine can be a powerful way to turn up the volume on your intuition, creativity and sensuality as well as to deepen enjoyment of your body in our practice.
To reserve your space, please RSVP via email and Venmo sliding scale $10-$75 to @britt-fohrman
A link to join the Zoom meeting will be emailed to you the day of the event.

Preparing your vagina for birth
This 3-part series is for all pregnant people, as well as birth workers with vaginas.
It’s time to get connected to the part of your body through which your baby is born. So many of us are disconnected, misinformed and confused about how our vaginas work and how we can work with them.
In this safe, confidential, supportive environment, you’ll have an opportunity to take an inward journey (fully clothed) to expand your capacity to open more easily for your baby, your pleasure and your power. We’ll illuminate and begin to release any shame, suffering, negative beliefs, traumas and unconscious physiological patterns that could make it difficult for us to open and accept the intensity of birth.
With lots of humor, compassion, and levity, we’ll practice simple yoga poses, focused breathing, visualization, sound, fun exercises in class and at home. This is an invitation to get real and vulnerable with yourself, and the people in the room, with the intention of having a more empowered and enlightened experience of birth.
Deep release: Restorative Yoga for Body, Heart, and Mind
Surrender into comfortable, supported poses while you enjoy easy breath awareness and simple meditation techniques. We’ll create a foundation of relaxation that radiates from your nervous system and organs to restore health, vitality and ease within all levels of your being. This gentle, soothing practice will help to relieve the aches in your muscular body, while expanding your natural capacity to heal, sleep, digest, conceive, build immunities and show up in your life with a clear mind and open heart.
Restorative Yoga is accessible to everyone, regardless of fitness level, age, ability or experience with yoga. This deep medicine can be incredibly useful for everyone, including pregnant women, new parents, people with anxiety, chronic illnesses, headaches and discomfort. All you need is the willingness to be still and present with yourself.
Prenatal Partner Yoga and Massage: Conscious Connection for Birth and Beyond
This workshop offers couples an opportunity to go deeper in their connection to each other, their babies and their own intuitive wisdom. Together you’ll learn how to confidently navigate all phases of labor with breath awareness, massage and partner poses. Furthermore, partners will learn skills for self care and creating a safe and calm environment for the birthing mother.
CONSCIOUS BIRTH: Breathe, Soften, Open and Go Inwards Towards the Power of Birth
Learn to focus your mind, settle your nervous system and release your body to make your birth easier, faster and more intuitive. With Restorative Yoga poses and HypnoBirthing breathing and visualization, you’ll surrender into deep relaxation, increasing your comfort throughout pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
August (on Zoom)
YOGA FOR PELVIC FLOOR AWARENESS: Juicy, Strong and Soft
Open and tune into the pelvic floor, while igniting the strength, suppleness and juiciness within this in this mysterious and powerful part of our bodies. You’ll learn how to use gentle and restorative yoga poses, along with yogic breathing, sounding and simple meditation techniques to deepen your connection to your pelvic floor muscles. This practice can be very useful in releasing tension and trauma; decreasing discomfort and dysfunction; while increasing circulation, relaxation, optimal function, strength and pleasure throughout our lives. As we become more embodied, the pleasurable possibilities increase! This exploration is open to self-identified women of all ages and life stages, and is especially relevant for the preconception, prenatal and postpartum times.
The Healing Power of Stillness: Restorative Yoga and Zen Class Series
Led by Britt Fohrman and Unzan Mako Voelkel
August 20-September 10 – Every Thursday 5-7pm
Come explore what it means to deeply rest in your own body and mind through Restorative Yoga and Zen. Restorative Yoga gives us an opportunity to balance the effort in our lives with ease and surrender. Our series will also include dharma offerings, seated meditation, gentle movement and stretching to complement our theme of cultivating ease, relaxation and surrender during this time of upheaval and uncertainty.
Through gentle, supported poses, breath awareness and meditation, we will drop into a deep state of physiological relaxation. From this still place, the body is more able to access its natural ability to cleanse, heal, digest, sleep, conceive, and build immunities. With the physical body at rest, a sense of mental, emotional, and spiritual ease naturally follows. This practice is perfect for neutralizing the stress and sleeplessness induced by the pandemic.

The juicy Ladies big sur coastal adventure
Tent camping in the trees, infused with the sounds of the ocean at Plaskett Creek Campground and delightful days at Sand Dollar Beach.
Join an intimate group of adventurous women for a long weekend exploration of your inner wild woman. On this retreat we’ll relax by the ocean, bang drums under the stars, eat s’mores by the campfire, play in the dirt, and maybe even take a late night dip in the pools at Esalen. It’s perfect for ladies new to camping, who want an easy, entry-level opportunity to explore the joyful simplicity of car camping. And for those with more camping experience, you have the chance to get back to the land in community, and if you wish, to share your rad skills with other juicy ladies.
We’ll spend 3 days and nights together, immersed in the healing powers of sisterhood, nature and healthy living. There will be yoga, meditation, other structured activities, as well as ample free time to get hypnotized by watching the birds fly overhead while listening to the sound of the waves.

“Heading down that long, winding road to Tassajara prepares me to unwind completely. The sound of the creek rushing at night lulls me to sleep, and the peaceful spirit of zen permeates those magical days. Britt’s signature yoga classes and her co-teacher’s zen meditation sessions combine perfectly to help me heal myself from the inside out.”
“Going on retreat with Britt is the ultimate self-care bliss. She is an experienced, knowledgeable and compassionate teacher who has a special talent at getting people to let go and surrender. She offers tremendous insights into how to relax and let life wash over me. These are special learnings I always bring back to life in the real word.”
“Since 2012, Britt’s retreats at Tassajara have become my annual pilgrimage – the combination of restorative yoga and natural hot springs is deeply nourishing for both body and mind.”
