Priceless Meditation

with Kelly Friedberg

Saturday, April 20, 2019 • 12:30 pm – 1:00 pm

“Meditation is the basis for all inner work. We might struggle conscientiously to change our limiting qualities; we might saturate ourselves with instructions and help, both concrete and subtle. Yet in the end, it is the direct, naked encounter with our own Awareness that shifts our understanding of who we are and gives us the power to stand firmly in the center of our being. No one else can make this happen for us. Meditation does.”

Sally Kempton

This 30 minute guided meditation class will cost you nothing but time and allow you to gain everything you desire. We will be seated in a safe, welcoming environment, using a variety of meditation techniques. You will be guided to breathe, focus on various objects, stories, visuals & sounds all with the intention to sit inside yourself for a moment of Awareness. Props provided, participants are invited to bring journals as it may be helpful to write down anything that comes up during the meditations. Please arrive promptly.

Arm Balance Workshop

with Jackie Dadario

Saturday, April 6, 2019 • 2:30pm – 4:30pm

Arm balances are challenging and fun, but most people find them intimidating and unattainable. This workshop will break all those old thought patterns and get you ready to fly! We will move through a series of preparatory poses to ensure we are safely warmed up and engaged. This workshop will teach you the tools necessary to ensure that you arm balance safely and mindfully, so that you are not relying on momentum or force to lift off, but rather your own strength which is cultivated purposefully. You will be able to incorporate these tools immediately into your existing vinyasa practice, not only to arm balance but also to move your body more efficiently during your practice. We will explore many common arm balances and related variations and, if time permits, any others that you are interested in learning.

A Day of Thai

with Lucia Ingraldi

Sunday, March 24, 2019 • 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Embrace and submerge yourself into this 2500 year old ayurvedic based body science that blends massage systems from Thailand and traditional medicine systems of India, China, Southeast Asia and yoga.

Enjoy a true traditional Thai massage and heal from the inside out. Find release and relaxation with an hour at $100, Deeper relaxation with muscle and fascia release during 90 minutes at $140 or Complete detoxification and rejuvenation with 120 minutes at $190. Please contact Lucia at 609-364-0311 to set up your appointment. Bring cash, check or you can Venmo.

Recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the giver and receiver, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked. The recipient wears loose, comfortable clothing and lies on a mat or firm mattress on the floor. The receiver will be positioned in a variety of yoga-like positions during the course of the massage, that is also combined with deep static and rhythmic pressures.

The massage generally follows designated lines (“sen”) in the body. The legs and feet of the giver can be used to position the body or limbs of the recipient. In other positions, hands fix the body, while the feet do the massaging. A full Thai massage session includes rhythmic pressing and stretching of the entire body. This may include pulling fingers, toes, ears, cracking knuckles, walking on the recipient’s back, and moving the recipient’s body into many different positions. There is a standard procedure and rhythm to the massage, which the giver will adjust to fit the receiver.
Therapeutic grade essential oils diffused and used throughout this vedic massage to open and balance all chakras while deepening relaxation and the healing process.
When Energy can’t flow freely we encounter inflexibility, pain, DIS-EASE leading to shortened muscles and connective tissues affecting posture, immunity, and organ function.

The pressing technique of Thai is designed to increase blood circulation facilitating an increase in oxygen and nutrients to the tissues. We will naturally rid our body of waste improving lymphatic flow.

This dynamic therapy’s benefits include but not limited to:

  • helps detoxify the body
  • boosts immune system
  • increase blood circulation
  • decrease blood pressure
  • muscle relaxation
  • increase mobility
  • improve posture
  • improve balance
  • corrects body alignment
  • dissolves energy blocks
  • helps tone the body
  • strengthens joints
  • fights disease
  • fights chronic joint problem
  • decrease stress
  • decrease anxiety
  • increase energy level

Itovi Scans available for an additional $10 to find the oils your body needs for balance and optimal health.

Nineties Retro Yoga

with Rebecca Kowalewicz

Friday, February 22, 2019 • 7:00pm – 8:30pm

90-minute yoga class features music, scents, and décor from the decade that killed hair metal, ushered in the three-note chord, and made wearing flannel not just for pajamas. Traditional yoga poses will incorporate fun dance moves from popular songs in some poses. Perfect for both young and old, the sequencing will be tailored more for a mixed level class, however can be adjusted to accommodate abilities of the class. As a bonus, a free optional takeaway will be given to attendees. Décor, music, takeaway, and essential oils will be provided by the yoga instructor.

Scent

Patchouli. A little bit rock, a little bit hippie, the ’90s saw a mix of the best of most decades. While it won’t smell like Teen Spirit, Patchouli essential oil will highlight the smell of the ’90s, making attendees feel they’re one pose away from a game of hacky sack.

Décor

Not since the ’60s had music played such an integral part for one generation. Music posters, flannel, and even a pair of combat boots will be used as décor.

Music

Song selections will feature some of the most popular songs from the ’90s and may include:

  • Nirvana
  • Pearl Jam
  • Weezer
  • Dave Matthews
  • Radiohead
  • Oasis
  • Blind Melon
  • R.E.M.
  • Sublime
  • And more!

Takeaways

Each attendee will be offered a snap bracelet to take with them after class.

$20 Minimum three (3) students required.
