Getting Unstuck with Yoga:  applying ancient techniques for personal power & happiness – 2.5 hours

Feel like you’re speeding through your life with no center and no energy?

Despite popular thought, HAPPINESS DOES NOT ARISE FROM PERFECT CONDITIONS: the right job, the right relationship, the right house, etc. In this intensive workshop, we will apply ancient yogic practices to empower you… revealing contentment within you – THIS IS WHERE HAPPINESS COMES FROM. We will stir up stuck energy and direct moving energy in specific ways to both witness and calm down extraneous energy. For millennia before yoga was reduced to a trendy workout, yoga was an elegant system for self-actualization. Postures (asana), Breathwork (pranayama) and Meditation (dyana) were intended to loosen the grip of the ego to reveal the True Self. The ancient yogis understood that consciousness is energy. And when energy gets stuck, so does consciousness. Discover a new level of your personal power! All levels of yoga and meditation experience are welcome.

  • Learn how to direct your energy wisely for greater peace and effectiveness in your life
  • Experience how loosening the grip of your ego can bring you more awareness, internal ease and wisdom
  • Enjoy the open-handed reality of meditation after a powerful yogic practice

Envisioning Your Life:  a yoga, meditation & creativity workshop – 3.5 hours

  • Have you lost direction for your life? Do you yearn for a fresh way to connect with what you really want for yourself?

A vision board is an illustrated, free-style road map meant to represent your dreams and desires and sets the energy in motion for you to attract them into your life. In this workshop, we shift into a creative mindset through yoga, meditation, breath and visualization to joyfully create your vision board. Come with a light heart, a curious mind and an excitement for your creative future! All levels of yoga, meditation, and artistic ability are welcome.

  • Center yourself through yoga and meditation
  • Reconnect with your imagination
  • Set powerful intentions through creative play and focus

Yoga Nidra:  learn transformative relaxation from the ancients – 2 hours

Wish you had a way to silence all the white noise in your head so you can finally relax? 

Yoga Nidra, or ‘the sleep of yogis,’ a guided meditation, has been used for millennia to achieve alert relaxation and heightened awareness of the inner life. The practice of engaging non-judgmental presence while compassionately looking within grants you the power to transform disturbances in your physical, emotional and mental fields. This form of self care encourages healing at the deepest levels, fostering acceptance, freedom from outmoded beliefs, recognition and realization, and unmitigated joy. No experience is necessary.

  • Experience the truth of who you are when the ego grows quiet
  • Connect with witness consciousness through intentional surrender
  • Discover relaxed physical and mental states for self-healing

Open to your unique expression from your most fundamental human yearning for joy and connection, allowing the rhythm of ritual to draw you into an egoless state of exultation.

Based on the science of sound as the vibrational source of creation, mantra gathers and directs energy into healing, awakening, manifestation and more.

  • Explore the power of sacred sound to create energy for change in your life
  • Shift out of ordinary, rational consciousness into transcendence
