Mastering Your Darkness

with Kelly Friedberg

Friday, November 9, 2018 • 6:30pm – 8:00pm

Join this peaceful practice of Pratyahara, or withdrawal of the senses. We’ll remove one of our biggest sensory inputs, our vision, and move blindfolded, accessing our vision through our third eye. We will go deeper and tune into our bodies, heightening our spacial awareness. Our physical practice will feel free, natural and organic.

Through 3rd eye chakra asana and meditation, we will access our intuitive selves. Mentally peeling back the layers, we will get to the core, our essence. We are the light and the dark, the good and the ‘bad’. We will allow ourselves to feel and get comfortable with all parts of ourselves and access the freedom that comes with being our full selves! From this space we move breathe and feel our essence and our light expand!

This is a very empowering practice that promotes trust, courage, personal growth and acceptance. (Some yoga experience recommended, as we will be blindfolded, but this is an all levels asana practice.)

Restorative, Sound, & Reiki Healing

with Karen Kapus

Sunday, October 21, 2018 • 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Restorative yoga is a completely passive practice that utilizes props to support our bodies in all of the poses to aid in complete relaxation. By relaxing our muscles, lowering our heart rate, and allowing our nervous system to slow down, restorative yoga helps us to balance our fast-paced lifestyles. As we find stillness in the pose we allow for healing, both physically and mentally, which ultimately supports us in being more focused and effective.

In this very special restorative class, we will be accompanied by the vibrations and harmonies of Nepalese sound therapy bowls. The vibrations work to awaken the parasympathetic nervous system and allow for a very deep relaxation. Reiki will also be given during this class. Reiki is an energy healing modality that utilizes universal energy and light to heal the physical, energetic, and auric bodies.

Restorative is accessible to people of all ages and skill-levels. This class is limited to 20 people and usually fill up quickly so sign up soon to reserve your space!
