SOUL SONGS – A NIGHT OF KIRTAN
SOUL SONGS –
A NIGHT OF KIRTAN
with Cynthia Alexander + Bambi Sivaramakrishnan
FRIDAY, MARCH 29TH @ 7 - 8:30PM
Welcome to an evening of sacred music with Cynthia Alexander and Bambi Sivaramakrishnan. Learn some basic sanskrit chanting, which is part of the tradition of Bhakti Yoga. Though more rare in the western world, Bhakti yoga may be the most simple and delightful form of yoga. Bhakti, simply put is singing in good company to arrive at the inner space where we find the divine and our true self meeting as one. Whether you are a long-time yogi, or walking in for the first time, join us for this unique experience of mantra snanam, bathing in sacred vibrations.

YOGA STABILITY WEEKEND IMMERSION
YOGA STABILITY WEEKEND IMMERSION
WITH MEREDITH CAMERON
SAT. APRIL 27TH – 28TH
Join Meredith Cameron for a weekend long immersion that will give you tools to understand your own personal set of conditions in each pose. Bone structure, Chinese Medicine, Daoism concepts and personal habits will be a part of the entire weekend.
These workshops can be purchased as a package or individually. Find out more below!
UPPER BODY RELEASE
SATURDAY 4/27 @ 12:30-3pm
Our upper bodies are always doing all of the work. Sometimes too much and then we end up having aches and pains for might seem like no reason at all.
No wonder we love to use our upper bodies. In Taoism, our upper bodies are our potential and capacity. But how can we, instead use the leverage of our feet and legs, to allow our potential and capacity (the upper body) to be full of FREEDOM?
Come learn and play, as we dive into tools to help to help us rewire the energy usage throughout our body just by using our legs and feet.
We will also connect the dots, learning which parts of the feet are connected to what on our bodies (through Taoism and Chinese medicine) and begin to allow any aches and pains the opportunity to rest.
Our upper body holds our organs and the essence of this practice is about letting our organs work in a nice, spacious home
GET OUT OF YOUR WAY
SATURDAY 4/27 @ 4-6:30pm
There's so much to do once you are in a pose. We will learn to get off of ourselves and get over ourselves. So often we sit in our joints and energy and information becomes stagnant. We then begin to use compensatory skills. In this workshop, we will instead, learn how to provide ourselves with proper insight and potential, enhance efficiency of our bodies, and bring our second nature forward (insight, intelligence, skill and technique).
A good yoga pose. A good relationship. It all has the same demand.
SUNDAY 4/28 @ 12:30-3pm
How well aligned are we to our lives? Physically speaking, we are designed to "fit".
Come explore the various "fits" of our bodies and what they mean. As we learn how to fit ourselves, our lives begin to make more sense also.
We move through fits that make our hips more available, that awaken and stimulate the glands, and we will speak of the endocrine system and how their relationship with the chakra system.
"Fits" also allow us to plug in and expend our energy efficiently. So much comes out of a simple fit, yet the challenge it truly plugging into ourselves. That's when currency, oxygen, blood and information begin to flow. And it feels SO good.
