💨 Embodied Breathwork 💨
This Thursday Jan. 11 @ 6:45 pm
with Chantal Peterson

Breathwork is a profound yet accessible self-healing tool. It can offer clarity and inspiration, access to peak states of awareness, as well as emotional healing and cellular detoxification. In this class, we begin with a few minutes of embodiment practices to ground the body and get out of our heads, priming the lungs for better flow of oxygen. We then move into a guided, 30-45 minute Connected Breathwork practice guided by a musical playlist. In this breathwork technique we use a circular, amplified, yet gentle breathing pattern, which alkalizes the body and shifts the brain chemistry to allow for flow state, breakthrough and release to naturally occur. We end with a few moments for meditation and integration.

🪷 Effortless Mindfulness: Meditation for Mindfulness & Awake Awareness 🪷
Monday nights, 7:15-8:15 PM
with Radhule Weininger

Radhule is back on Monday nights! This class teaches how we can practice mindfulness and compassion grounded in the field of spacious, knowing and benevolent awareness. In the sphere that is within and around us, we can deepen our mindfulness practice effortlessly. Then our heartfulness and love is rooted the field of benevolence and interconnectedness that is already there, everywhere. With this experience our care can come from a place that is greater than our individual self, and our experience of being mindful arises from limitless presence. Then we come from a place of receptivity and openness and our trust in life can have deep roots. From this deeper ground, the canape’ of our branches is wide and strong, preparing us to contribute to life and to the healing of our world in much more effective ways.

See you there!

☀️ 108 Sun Salutes to the New Year ☀
Jan. 1 @ 6am
with Matthew Darling

Join us on New Year’s Day for an offering and attempting at practicing 108 sun salutation.

108 is an auspicious number in Hindu and Buddhist practices. We will start as a group; Matthew will guide the first salutation with some insight and awareness to the intention, alignment, timing, a simple way to keep a count and approaching our goal with a responsible and mindful focus.

The rest of the time will be self guided and our collective energy will hopefully support you to find your flow and the amount that you’re offering allows. There are many derivatives of 108: 27, 54, 81, more or less?

Cast your ego aside, find some ease, freedom and set the new year on corse for bright radiant consciousness. Our counting method will be with beans, at the end we will gather up each persons accomplished pile.

Later the beans will be washed, soaked and made into “Yoga Soup” and eaten at a gathering on another day. Looking forward to seeing you in the New Year.

⛈️5 Elements 5 Myths Vinyasa⛈️
Monthly Saturdays
Starting Jan. 6, 2-4 pm
With Kelly Heath

It’s easy to get habituated and stuck in our own ruts as days, weeks, months and even years roll by. Storytelling has been used in every culture as a way to awaken to deep and transformative inner shifts within. When we can connect with the great wisdom of our body, and also to different characters in powerful stories we can begin to see our life circumstances and sense of clarity and empowerment in entirely new ways. Join Kelly for a powerful experience centered around the 5 Great Elements, myth, mantra and movement.

January 6: Expect a low and slow, EARTH Vinyasa Flow centered around the Feet, Legs & Hips beginning with a Ganesha story and mantra that inspires us to ground, clear your path and not be so ruled by the swirl of life.

💨 Ecstatic Breathing 💨
Thursday Dec. 28 @ 6:45 pm
with Eddie Ellner

A few minutes of gentle yoga followed by an hour of breathing. The process itself could not be simpler: one lies on their back and breathes to a selection of music designed to accelerate and amplify the breath. This induces what can most accurately be called a non-ordinary state of consciousness. From that point on many claims are made but the experience itself will provide its own meaning and insight.

An incredible tool to know is at one’s immediate disposal. Refreshments served, with time afterwards for conversation and silence.

⭐️ Creative Kids Yoga ⭐️
UPDATED SCHEDULE: Mondays Jan. 8 - Feb. 12
*Ages 5-10*
with Kristin Davies

Kids are busy these days with school, family and extras and they get stressed out just like adults. Yoga is a great way for them to connect, slow down and learn about the tools within themselves to de-stress.

Creative Kids Yoga classes introduce postures, breathing and yoga themes to kids through movement and art. We float, grow and balance through a dynamic, fun flow building awareness, confidence and strength. This is kid friendly, energetic, silly and fun yoga.

Each week of this 6 week series explores a new "pose of the day" and a yogic theme in both the asana (movement) and art portions of the class. We will add poses and projects every week giving these yogis a solid yoga foundation, tools to be successful both on and off the mat and a collection of cool, creative pieces of art.

A Course In Miracles is a self-guided curriculum and daily meditation practice. The underlying premise of the Course is that the greatest miracle is "simply gaining a full awareness of love's presence" in one's life.

☁️ Breath & Sound ☁️
Thursday Dec. 21 @ 6:45 pm
with Madeleine Pizey & Danielle Elese

Breathwork and sound healing are two potent practices and, when fused, can be incredibly transformative for oneself. In this 75-minute offering, Madeleine (Breathwork Facilitator) will guide you through a restorative sequence and then take you through the active circular breathwork as Danielle (Sound healer) will support you in the ancient practice of Sound Healing. Both modalities have many benefits for the mind, body, and spirit, including quieting the mind, releasing stress, anxiety, or worries, gaining clarity in your life that you are feeling stuck in, feeling more grounded and at ease, and decreasing inflammation.

This Saturday Dec. 9, 5:30-7:30 PM
with Elyse Grossman & Glen Phillips

Yoga Soup vinyasa teacher Elyse Grossman and seasoned musician Glen Phillips are happy to bring a collaborative offering to the studio.

We look forward to exploring three modes of embodiment, joy and connection. We'll awaken the body with vinyasa flow, calm the mind with seated meditation and then enliven the spirit with community singing.

This two hour program will feature a 45 minute all-level vinyasa flow and 10 minute meditation led by Elyse. Glen will lead singing for the second hour. All voices and experience levels are welcome. Community singing removes the concept of audience and performer and seeks to restore the birthright of sharing the power of song with each other and for each other.
