MARCH WORKSHOPS

Emotional Intelligence: A 9-week in-depth Kundalini mini-series with Leah Fae

Wednesday March 6 – May 2nd | From 7:45-9pm | Pre – Reg only
$135 early bird or $150 after March 1st ~ Spaces are Limited
Emotional intelligence is our means of understanding the complex web of emotions we all navigate moment by moment. We can transform trauma and it’s associated emotions into healing.
Each week we’ll focus on one collective emotion. Using body awareness, Kundalini yoga, breathing techniques, visualization and reflective journaling, we will learn to bring a new emotional understanding into our lives. This is where the Ego hits the road – from the small decisions and reactions that form our lives to the larger collective decisions that remain unconscious and unfettered. We can have a say in how it plays out. That’s Emotional Intelligence.

Spring Equinox Kirtan with Leah Fae & Richard Bryant

Saturday March 17th | From 7:30-9:00pm | $20

On the day of spring equinox, daytime and nighttime are approximately equal duration all over the planet! Join Leah Fae on Harmonium and Richard Bryant on Guitar to celebrate spring. Kirtan is the musical meditation. It is a form of Bhakti yoga – often referred to as the yoga of devotion. The root of Bhakti is bhaj- to share or to love. With the repetition of the words, one is able to lose themselves in the rhythm and the melody. It’s a beautiful thing to let go of the self-consciousness of singing with people – some of whom you may have never met – and allow your voice to blend with the group.The ancient chants contain powerful renewing & transformative energy that helps us reconnect with the Divinity that resides within all of us.

 

Yin Yang Aerial, An In-depth Class

ON SUNDAY MARCH 18th W/ MELANIE

Reiki + Yin Yoga Workshop with Erin Bontius and Tony Wolfe

Sunday March 25th | 12-1:30pm | $45

Yin Yoga is a quieter and simple practice, but not necessarily an easy one It works deeply into our body, targeting the innermost layers of tissues. It also encourages us to find stillness which is an even more challenging feat for many. Reiki is a Japanese form of body work that is known for its balancing, stress reducing and tendency to instill a deep level of relaxation. It does this by channeling the universal energy found all around us, in order to help both the physical and subtle bodies recharge, let go, and heal. In this workshop, we will be combining both of these profound practices in order to offer one wellness powerhouse for the mind, body and spirit.

In order to give everyone the time and energy they deserve, spaces are limited, so reserve your spot soon!
