Classes & Weapons Demos

Martial Arts Demos and Classes, Yoga, Labyrinth

Arisia has yoga classes, a labyrinth, and hands-on weapons demonstrations to move your body as well as your mind. Check the online schedule or your pocket program for details in addition to the individual schedules below.

Martial Arts

We offer Demonstrations and hands-on classes in a variety of different forms, given by local and out-of-state weapons groups. For example, CHEMAS Group, The Cambridge Historical European Martial Arts Studies Group, translates and interprets extant combat treatises from the Medieval, Renaissance, and early modern eras. Its members occasionally present demonstrations based on their work.


Yoga classes will be scheduled Friday evening, every morning, and as many later-in-the-day times as we can fit into the schedule. Please bring comfortable clothes and if possible your own mats and yoga props.

Our yoga class is an oasis, a sanctuary, and a safe place to recharge your body, mind, and replenish your wellsprings. Sequences bring loving and compassionate awareness into shape, and flow. Instruction is always about intelligent and beautiful movement, sourced from your center, and expressing your best self from wherever you currently are.


What’s blue & white and bigger on the inside? Our 30’x30’ seven-circuit classical labyrinth! A tool for walking meditation, self-inquiry, relaxation, or just for fun, use it to find a little peace during the excitement of Arisia. The labyrinth is open to all who can respect the space. You can arrive anytime and walk it as many times as you’d like.
