Mantras, Mudras and Meditation

Sunday, September 30, 4:30 – 5:45 pm, $15

Think of a MANTRA as an “instrument of sound.” Think of a MUDRA as “yoga for your hands.” In this workshop, we will explore the seven main Chakras and the mantras and mudras that correspond with each. Chakras, being vortexes of energy that both radiate and receive, are powerful tools for self-regulation and wellness. Come explore this ancient system of practice that can positively affect our emotions, physical health and mental clarity. Workshop ends with a 15 minute meditation accompanied by a Chinese wind gong. Led by Samantha Burton, 200RYT

Power of the Breath

Sunday, October 14, 3:00 – 4:30 pm, $15

Prana – life force; Yama – control or restraint. Prana is not the same as breath. Our breath is the conduit of our prana, our energy. Pranayama is the practice of yoga breathing techniques that consciously controls the flow of our breath and enhances the flow of energy in our body.

In this 90-minute workshop, Poonam Jain, RYT, will provide instruction and guidance on different pranayama techniques. Each technique serves its own purpose – to calm the mind, energize the body or harmonize the two hemispheres of the brain.

Fundamentals for Beginners

Thursdays, August 30-Oct. 4, $60

In this 6-week course, Angie Becker, RYT, will introduce you to the fundamentals of yoga, including yoga postures (asanas), breath work and meditation.

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to be flexible and bendy to learn yoga – increased flexibility and mobility are products of the practice. Other benefits include self-discovery, improving your circulatory system and central nervous systems, increasing your self-esteem and getting stronger. This course is also appropriate for anyone who hasn’t practiced yoga for a while and needs a refresher.

A minimum of five students is needed in order to offer the class and pre-paid registration is required to hold your spot. Sign up with a friend and you both receive $5 off (must sign up at the same time and refer each other). Download a registration form and pay by check or through PayPal.

Gentle Touch Restorative Yoga

Monthly, Monday evenings,

7:15 -8:30 pm, $15

Next dates:  Sept3mber 17

Sink into bliss with restorative yoga. Experience deeper levels of relaxation as you give yourself permission to rest, balance, restore and tap into new sources of energy. In our fast-paced world, the opportunities to completely relax are few and far between. Our bodies are overworked and our minds are over-stimulated. Restorative yoga eliminates muscular tension as well as mental and emotional stress.

In restorative yoga, props are used to fully support the body and to help in releasing layers of tension. Sequences typically have only five or six poses, are held for five minutes or more and include light twists, seated forward folds and gentle backbends.

You’ve earned this time to take care of yourself. You deserve to feel this good.

Space is limited to 8 participants. Please message us on Facebook to reserve your spot.

Yoga Nidra 

Monthly, Wednesday evenings 7:15-8:30 pm, $10

Next dates:  September 26

Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “going-to-sleep” stage. A powerful meditation technique that anyone can do, yoga nidra promotes deep rest, relaxation, self-discovery, a sense of wholeness and a feeling of complete well-being.

Practiced lying down and following verbal instructions, the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world. At the start of the yoga nidra practice, a sankalpa – an intention formed by the heart and mind – is set and revisited at the end of the yoga nidra practice. A body scan and breath awareness calms the mind and relaxes the body and images, visualization and sense perception are used to enhance the experience.
