Restorative Chakra Yoga and Sound Healing: Mini Retreat

Sunday, April 30

2:00 4:30PM

It's time to take care of yourself, to RESTORE yourself to wholeness, balance, and well-being of body, mind, and spirit. Treat yourself (and someone you love!) to an afternoon of Restorative Chakra Yoga, Sound Healing, and Aromatherapy to re-vitalize every cell of your being, re-energize each chakra, and re-store your body-mind-spirit into health and wholeness! In this workshop you linger in simple, aligned, and supported (via blankets, bolsters, and other props) yoga postures for each chakra for longer duration (5-10 minutes per pose) to ease chronic stress and allow deep relaxation WHILE hearing and feeling the healing vibrations of quartz crystal singing bowls, the unison, harmony, and octave frequencies of tuning forks, and vocal tones WHILE breathing in the soothing scents of Essential Oils. Spaces are limited and this event does sell out.

Sign up at the front desk or online.

Ayurveda Seasonal Wellness Series: Summer

Thursday, June 15

6:30 8:30PM

Ayurveda, Sanskrit for the "science of life", is India's 5,000 year old medical system. It is commonly referred to as Yoga's sister science, as both are rooted in the ancient Vedic tradition. Yoga teaches us how to balance our mind, while Ayurveda teaches us how to balance our body through the use of food, herbs, and living in harmony with nature. The latter is most important during times of seasonal transition when we must modify our diet, lifestyle, and even our Yoga practice to adapt to the changes happening around us. In this 2-hour workshop, we will review the foundations of Ayurveda and the tri-dosha approach. We will then focus on diet and lifestyle routines specific for the summer (Pitta) season. The workshop will end with a Yoga, pranayama, and meditation practice specific for the season. Handouts of class material will be provided. Prior understanding of Ayurveda is preferred but not necessary.
