WORKSHOPS & RETREATS

 

Candlelit Yin Yoga

with Krista Mason

Sundays, 1/7 and 2/11 & Friday 2/23, 6:30-8 p.m.

Nourish your body and mind in this quiet, relaxing practice. You will leave relaxed and rejuvenated with a deeper feeling of balance and a deeper sense of calm.


Yin Yoga helps bring balance to our overly busy lifestyles. It is a contemplative practice of long, passive holds (generally 3-5 minutes) in specific floor postures to nourish the joints and ligaments of our body while emphasizing and deepening into the breath throughout the practice. These asanas gently strengthen and rehabilitate the connective tissues that form our joints, allowing us to maintain and restore joint flexibility. This practice helps to bring balance to both our lives and our more active yoga practices. Yin Yoga also allows us to become more present, allowing us to draw “within” ourselves and quiet our mind and body. As we find that quiet acceptance in our postures, we can also find this acceptance spilling out into our life.

We will practice by the glow of candlelight, and finish practice by sharing some wine and yummy chocolate! We will leave relaxed, rejuvenated, and ready to ease into the holiday season.

Cost is $25.

Are you ready to live the life you truly desire this year? Tired of having dreams that just don't blossom into something meaningful? If so, join us for an afternoon of self-care to get crystal-clear on what matters most to you as we make vision boards. A vision board is a powerful tool that harnesses the Law of Attraction to get things happening! Creating a sacred space of images and words that display what your authentic self really wants helps bring it to life.

This workshop will include a guided meditation to help participants gain clarity on what they wish to invite into their lives in the new year, an opportunity to journal and further reflect on their desires, and adequate time to create a vision board.

All supplies will be provided. However, you may want to bring a photo of yourself to amp up the power of your board along with any other images that are important to you.

Self-care workshop.jpg

Do you wish you could feel more balanced, get more sleep, and set better boundaries in your relationships? Are you feeling like a self-care failure month after month? Do you endlessly berate yourself for slips in your personal well-being plan? If any of this sounds familiar, you are not alone! Self-care can be tricky, but it doesn't have to be nonexistent or difficult. If it's time to set foot on a solid path, join us for a 3-part self-care workshop series! The goal of this workshop series is to bring you into deep awareness with yourself by mindfully exploring and paying attention to your self-care assets and deficits in order to allow the healthiest version of you to blossom.

Each 2-hour workshop will include a combination of gentle physical movement, guided meditation, coaching tools, creative activities and supportive discussion. Some topics we will tackle include goal setting, prioritizing self-care needs in the moment, shifting defeatist inner dialogue to more positive, affirming self-talk, and identifying your best practices for balanced living.

Homework will be assigned at the end of each meeting. All supplies will be provided. Students should wear comfortable, layered clothing and bring a curious, open mind to each session.

While not required, it may be helpful to attend the January 27, 2018 Vision Board workshop as a means of opening your awareness to what you most want to attract into your life. For many students, better care of themselves and prioritizing their needs is a theme of their vision boards! Register for the 3-part "Tending You" workshop series and save! The three workshop series is $90; drop in rate for an individual session is $35. Each workshop will be capped at 20 participants so register soon.
