New Year, New Beginnings
Tuesday, January 1st 2019
We come together on this first day of the new year to look deep within ourselves, to let go of what no longer serves and put forth our hearts deepest longings. Through meditation, movement, vision boards and Yoga Nidra we set the wheels in motion to manifest our new reality in this new year.
We begin with a meditation to tap in to self, followed by a gentle asana practice. We then unleash our creativity making vision boards of all our dreams for the coming year. We will conclude with a long Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) practice where we'll set our Intentions (resolve).
No yoga or meditation experience necessary.
All vision board supplies included. Please bring your own scissors and magazines to share if you have any.
Conscious Connected Breathwork Journey
Friday, January 4th 2019
6:00 - 8:30 PM
Your breath is a powerful key to improving your state of mind and health. It even carries the capacity to shift you into non-ordinary states of consciousness opening the way for insights and what some might call "spiritual experiences."
Benefits of Conscious Connected Breathing include:
- Trauma Release
- Improved Mental, Emotional, Physical and Spiritual well-being
Turn inwards with the breath as your guide and healer...take a profound and transformative journey within your Self. Unwind, release, and melt within the living vibrational matrix of music. Relax into community, fully self-empowered. Nourish yourself and release that which no longer serves. Open and clear the pathways to health and well-being on all levels. Explore the energetic continuum of your body, beliefs, emotions, and non-physical realms. Detoxify, rejuvenate, energize, release, express, integrate, clarify, and heal.
Each breath is a key... curious what's behind the door?
Beginner AcroYoga Workshop
Saturday, January 5th 2019
Can you do Acro Yoga? Yes you can!
We will start right at the basics, building a solid foundation as flyers, bases, and spotters. We will laugh, play, and support each other as we discover foundational poses such as bird, throne, and back flying.
Come to class and experience how attainable this practice is. Our philosophy is that everything is possible. Anything you can't do is simply something you can't do yet. No partner needed, just an open mind and a desire to play.
Balance Your Nervous System
Saturday, January 12th 2019
1:30pm - 3:30pm
It has its purpose, but if you notice that stress is getting in the way of your happiness, it's probably time to do something about it! Stress can influence your physiology in a number of ways and, if prolonged or chronic, can lead to unwanted problems. In this workshop, we will be exploring various techniques and their effects on balancing our personal scale of stress versus relaxation.
We will be exploring how breathing mindfully can help us to access our parasympathetic system in order to induce a relaxation response. Included will be practical suggestions for stress-management and self-reflection into practices that you can implement for a more balanced nervous system. This workshop will include a brief Yang/Yin yoga practice with a deep relaxation component.
Facilitated by Anne-Marie Mougeot, an Osteopathic Practitioner, Kinesiologist, & Yoga Instructor who works with a whole-person approach to healing.
