Winter Solstice Candlelight108

Sunday, December 19th, 5-7:30p  

Winter solstice marks the longest night and the shortest day.  It is seen as a time for turning inward, for reflection, and for rest.  But, it is also the start of our annual journey toward longer days and into the light.  Thus, it’s a time for celebration and honor. As we come together for this special practice, you will have the opportunity to acknowledge endings and clear space for growth in the coming year.  

This challenging practice of 108 Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar) is a powerful experience that will stretch you and leave your practice forever changed.  You do not need to complete all 108, just come and share the energy.  These physical males will be done by candlelight celebrating the season and will be offered with multiple variations and breaks, creating accessibility for a wide range of practitioners.

This event is donation based (suggested $15-$30) with all proceeds benefitting local families this winter.  

Bring someone you love and share this gift of yoga.

Rest and Receive

Where Yoga Nidra and Reiki Meet

Friday, November 19th, 7:00pm-8:15pm  

Beginning with calming breath work to center our focus within, we will settle further into stillness with the practice of yoga nidra (enlightened conscious sleep). Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation inviting us to experience subtle states beneath the layers of our mental activity. From this open and receptive state, Melanie will share reiki energy to promote further relaxation and healing.   

Note: This is not a movement class. We will be getting cozy, so bring socks, and wear your favorite comfy clothes!

What is Yoga Nidra?

Yoga Nidra is an ancient technique from India mentioned in the Upanishads and the Marabharata some 3,000-5,000 years ago.  The practice is one of complete relaxation as you enter the conscious state of mind that falls somewhere between sleeping and being awake. You’re “awake” the entire time you practice, but you’re not exactly alert. The goal is to enter a conscious sleep state and totally relax your brain, therefore releasing any unwanted tension in your body.  The practice is done lying down as you follow along to the guided meditations from the teacher.

How is it different than meditation?

Yoga Nidra is very similar to meditation, with one main difference. While traditional meditation is usually practiced in the ‘waking’ state drawing into a singe point of focus, Yoga Nidra occurs in the space between waking and dreaming, and explores the various dimensions of your being.

What are the Benefits?

Deep relaxation along with a reduced sense of anxiety. A 30-minute session can be equal to three to four hours of restorative sleep for the body. Studies show yoga nidra can have lasting effects on your mental state and can be an effective therapeutic tool for reducing anxiety and stress levels. In fact, the US Army employs nidra for both soldiers with PTSD and those with chronic pain. Yoga Nidra practice expands your capacity to handle stressful situations. Learning to be present and witness the moment without judgment,  leads to a greater awareness and your ability to identify and release the patterns in your life that no longer serve you. Yoga Nidra can be a great avenue for personal growth and evolution as it can lead to deep reflections that help you solve and resolve personal and interpersonal challenges as well as increase your sense of purpose in the world.

Caring for Your Spine Through Backbends and Inversions

Saturday, October 30th, noon – 3pm  

In this monthly workshop, we will focus on backbends as well as inversions. Inversions are so important and often times overlooked in a modern 1 hour practice. There are so many benefits, including (but not limited to) improved circulation, increased energy, relaxation and so much more! Also overlooked in short practices are the powerful benefits of backbending. H.S Arun says that, “the healing of back pain comes from the backbends.” In a society where so many suffer from chronic back pain, it is more important than ever to focus on the back and how we can find relief!

Breath As The Bridge:
A Pranayama Workshop with Melanie

Saturday, October 9th, 12-2pm  –  Everyone Welcome

The yoga tradition describes breath as the bridge to access different layers of our human experience. It is the essential link between the conscious mind and unconscious patterns; spanning from physiological feedback loops to emotional reactivity and racing thoughts.
