UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

  • Self Love Workshop with Adriana Cerundolo NEW DATE!! February 9th 2019 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    Our heart is only as free to the degree to which we love ourselves. With an electromagnetic field stronger than our brain, the heart is our ultimate sensing tool and intermediary between our internal and external world.

    The heart space holds the seat of our divinity and our soul’s wisdom.Unlocking our heart’s potential starts with clearing barriers to self-love. It requires turning inwards and allowing our heart to be felt and seen.

    Self-love takes courage. “Cour” means heart, “age” means age; literally, being in the time of the heart. With courage, we are able to face anything while staying rooted in ourselves, rooted in our truth and in our heart. It’s from this place where we shine.

    This 3-hr workshop is a sacred space to explore your heart. Following a kundalini yoga practice to open the heart, we will journey into our inner wisdom through a crystal bowl sound bath, and integrate our experience through free-form movement and art expression. Expect to leave refreshed, centered, and connected to your purest essence.

    “Love is the most secure place in an individual. It is very secure, very deep, very curative healing. It has no pain. It’s not limited. The highest state of security of an individual is when a person is in the state of love. It is a consciousness which can penetrate through anything for that thing and nothing can penetrate it.”Yogi Bhajan

HATHA

Hatha is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation. Hatha classes focus on correctly aligning the body to improve general posture, breathing and circulation. Hatha is ideal for beginners and those with physical limitations.

IYENGAR

Named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, is a form of Hatha Yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through the asanas. B.K.S.

RESTORATIVE

A form of yoga that seeks to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props. The use of props makes it easier for you to maintain balance while you are stimulating and relaxing your body.

VINYASA FLOW

Vinyasa Yoga is a dynamic system of practicing asanas (poses). Yoga postures flow in a logical sequence. Each position complements those that precede and follow. This practice focuses on the synchronization of breath & the continuous flow of movement. Vinyasa is a strong practice that builds heat, endurance, flexibility, strength and mental focus. This class can be strenuous; may be appropriate for beginners.

YIN YOGA

Named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, is a form of Hatha Yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through the asanas. B.K.S.

CORE BALANCE

This class will help you build core awareness, stability and strength.  You will learn how to safely strengthen and engage the core abdominal complex, learn techniques to release body muscle tension.  A stronger and stable core will better support the spine resulting in better posture alignment, balanced breath and may help reduce minor lower back and neck issues.

Embrace the moment, Embrace Life!

Live life with balance, grounding and love.
