90 Minute Monthly Brand New Yogis Class
Oct
25
to Jun 26

90 Minute Monthly Brand New Yogis Class

Calling all Brand Newbie’s to practice… for Still Poses & Flowing Moves!

Beginning in October the studio will be offering a New 90 Minute Monthly Class …

Come with a "beginners mind," bringing focus to the fundamental principals of a healthy practice to help avoid injury that may be encountered at a more advanced stage (after all advanced practice doesn’t necessarily mean pretzel poses or standing on your hands as much as it should be about “honoring limitations while exploring boundaries”). Plan to build a solid foundation that will support a sustainable practice in years to come. The flow / Vinyasa aspect of this practice is slow paced, yet fully engaging to build a steady pace for cultivating endurance, incorporating simple variations that that train the body to mind the spirit of the practice. Appropriate for Brand New Beginner, Experienced Beginner (even Intermediate practitioners benefit if seeking a refresher.)

Healing Sound Bath w/ Baba Doc!

Healing Sound Bath w/ Baba Doc!

Sound has been used as a powerful healing mechanism since humans first formed civilizations that promoted a high level of spiritual consciousness.

The first rhythm we feel and sounds we hear come to us while in the stress free womb of our mothers. This experience unifies all humans no matter race, gender, age, or religious belief system.

Sound therapists have the ability to use sound frequencies to interact with the energy frequencies of human bodies. Through these interactions, frequencies, and energy, the human body can be balanced.

Realizing more and more the importance of healing with sound, Baba Doc created the Healing Sound Bath, using a variety of percussion instruments, each with a unique voice and energy to create an experience that promotes relaxation, stress relief, healing, breathing, and balances both hemispheres of the brain.

Bagua Xun Dao Gong Qigong Classics Workshop w/ Daisy Lee!

One of Daisy's key teachers in China, Master Wan Su Jian, is head of the Beijing Red Cross Medical Exchange Center, and passed on these Qigong short forms to Daisy that will be taught on Friday evening. Swimming Dragon is a relaxing warm-up exercise to clear the energy around the abdomen.  It helps to alleviate digestive concerns when the body is under stress, as well as mid-section discomforts. Dragon Pearl is a movement that opens up the shoulders and torso while establishing strength in the legs and lower body.  It is a favorite amongst practitioners and can be used to augment cancer treatment because of the increased oxygen flow in the body. Master Wan's Flying Phoenix cultivates the reconnection of our body's field with that of the earth and sky. Graceful and empowering, this movement supports core and spinal health, while improving the strength of the arms.  Daisy will close the session with the Shaolin Massage that is often used at the end of a practice.

Cost: $60 for Early Registration ($75 after June 14th)

Sonic Flower Sound Immersion (Crystal Singing Bowls) w/Scotty Soniq!

Greetings, Beautiful Friends ! Start your Memorial Day weekend with a........delicious, warm, fuzzy, and Deeply Cosmic Sound Immersion! What a GREAT way to ease into and prepare for your busy weekend. The Vibratory Field created has rich potential for Balance and Healing. This Journey is Ours. Please join us.


Join us for a ReikiSound(TM) Immersion w/ Scotty Soniq !

Plan for a totally immersive and Life Enhancing sound experience. Participants rest horizontally or seated comfortably while surrounded by 7 singing quartz crystal bowls. The tones emanated are extremely resonant and are not only heard, but can be felt in one’s body as they produce a field of deep coherence -- a structured yet always-evolving cache of information rich in potential and waiting to be tapped. Typical Immersions usually last for 75 minutes and can be merged with your Inner or Outer Work. The journey is yours to choose.

When facilitating or co-creating a Sound Session of ANY kind -- whether I use singing bowls, drums, voice, or simple DJing -- I engage Reiki energy. ALL sessions are a session of ReikiSound(TM), and ALL sessions are RICH with Potential and Catalyst for one's Harmonious Evolution into the Future. What does THIS session have in store for you?

Donation Class to Benefit Living Beyond Breast Cancer!

Join Kaoutar for this special class… All Proceeds collected from this Donation Based Community Class will Benefit the organization known as Living Beyond Breast Cancer!

Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) was founded. To address the needs of the ever-expanding group of women seeking information, LBBC organized two annual conferences and produced a quarterly educational newsletter. Several years later, LBBC introduced the Breast Cancer Helpline (formerly the Survivors’ Helpline), which provides peer support services from volunteers with a personal history of breast cancer. These interactions with LBBC empowered them to make sense of their “new normal” and provided a place to interact with others sharing this experience.

ReikiSound Immersion Live Music Event

6:00 PM18:00

ReikiSound Immersion Live Music Event

Join us for the ReikiSound(TM) Immersion (formerly the Sonic Flower Sound Immersion) w/ Scotty Soniq

Plan for a totally immersive and Life Enhancing sound experience. Participants rest horizontally or seated comfortably while surrounded by 7 singing quartz crystal bowls. The tones emanated are extremely resonant and are not only heard, but can be felt in one’s body as they produce a field of deep coherence -- a structured yet always-evolving cache of information rich in potential and waiting to be tapped. Typical Immersions usually last for 75 minutes and can be merged with your Inner or Outer Work. The journey is yours to choose.

When facilitating or co-creating a Sound Session of ANY kind -- whether I use singing bowls, drums, voice, or simple DJing -- I engage the Reiki / Holy Fire energies. ALL sessions are a session of ReikiSound(TM), and ALL sessions are RICH with Potential and Catalyst for one's Harmonious Evolution into the Future. What does THIS session have in store for you?

90 Minute Monthly Yin Restorative Class

Join us for our ongoing 90 Minute Monthly Yin Restorative session on a Friday evening … Expect a class that incorporates a therapeutic approach to practice with focus on centering with the breath to bring the mental, emotional and physical centers into alignment.

While practitioners tend to hold poses for longer periods of time, a restorative internal arts flow of movement / gentle Vinyasa is usually incorporated for transition purposes or as a stand alone exercise. Myth, storytelling, poetry or philosophy are presented for a reflective experience and props are often used to access poses for time while honoring limitations. Each practice offers a space to meditate in the sweet surrender of being still in order to free the mind, heart and body from negative patterns.
