Aug 01   Yoga Nidra, Somatics, Meditation Class

A way to "work in" vs. work out.
Join others who want to develop or advance a meditation practice in this group setting. We’ll begin with somatics, a gentle form of yoga done primarily in a reclined position that promotes sensory awareness and freedom of movement and prepares the Self for further inner work. We’ll then experience Yoga Nidra, an ancient practice from the yoga tradition. Yoga Nidra, or “yogic sleep,” is an effortless state of being, experienced in a reclined position, that invites complete physical, mental and emotional  relaxation. With its many profound benefits, we will use it to further deepen our practice. Class will include Nada yoga, using crystal singing bowls, gong baths and other sound/music designed to unify.  Seated breathing exercises and an extended session of meditation conclude the class.

Aug 17   Healing with Bach Flower Essence

In this class we will explore and dis­cuss Bach Flower Essences and how they may be used for heal­ing.

For hun­dreds of years, the energy of plants and flow­ers have been stud­ied for their indi­vid­ual abil­i­ties to help cor­rect emo­tional imbal­ances lead­ing to joy and hap­pi­ness. When we expe­ri­ence times of dif­fi­culty and stress, flower essences are invalu­able in restor­ing bal­ance.

Dr. Edward Bach believed a per­son in con­flict; emo­tion­ally or spir­i­tu­ally could be aided with a com­bi­na­tion of flower essences.  He col­lected dew from the petals of spe­cific flow­ers and stud­ied their effects on indi­vid­u­als with such imbal­ances as depres­sion, sad­ness, anx­i­ety, stress or even insom­nia.

In this class explore the his­tory of Dr. Edward Bach, and learn how you can suc­cess­fully incor­po­rate the Bach Flower Essences into your life and within your fam­ily.

 A fun sem­i­nar to take with a friend or fam­ily mem­ber!

Aug 29   Yoga Nidra, Somatics, Meditation Class

A way to "work in" vs. work out.
Join others who want to develop or advance a meditation practice in this group setting. We’ll begin with somatics, a gentle form of yoga done primarily in a reclined position that promotes sensory awareness and freedom of movement and prepares the Self for further inner work. We’ll then experience Yoga Nidra, an ancient practice from the yoga tradition. Yoga Nidra, or “yogic sleep,” is an effortless state of being, experienced in a reclined position, that invites complete physical, mental and emotional  relaxation. With its many profound benefits, we will use it to further deepen our practice. Class will include Nada yoga, using crystal singing bowls, gong baths and other sound/music designed to unify.  Seated breathing exercises and an extended session of meditation conclude the class.
