NEW TIME – Kundalini Yoga with Adriana Cerundolo from 5:00 – 6:00 pm

Kundalini Yoga, as brought to the west in 1969 by Yogi Bhagan, is a technology for activating life force in the body for maximum vitality and well-being. It leverages ancient mystical practices that align breath with movement and sound frequency to awaken “kundalini,” or life force energy, and distribute it throughout the body. Kundalini Yoga is considered the yoga of awareness since it awakens one’s sensory perception and creative consciousness. Leave feeling refreshed, revitalized, and present in yourself.

  • Solstice Sound Bath with Adriana Cerundolo Dec. 21, 2018 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

    Experience the power of sound in this special Winter Solstice Sound Bath.

    Everything is energy, and energy is vibration. Sound is, therefore, a powerful tool to transform both physical and non-physical experience.

    Winter Solstice marks the first day of winter and the day with least hours of sunlight. The word ‘Solstice’ comes from Latin ‘sol’ for sun and ‘sistere’ for ‘to stand still.’ It represents the turning point between death and rebirth, that place where potential becomes a seed for manifestation. As such, it is a powerful time for turning inwards to experience our own deep silence, and call forth the seeds that wish to germinate in our own hearts.

    This year, Winter Solstice coincides with a full moon, amplifying the energy of cycle completion and energizing new intentions.

    Receive the blessings of Winter Solstice and Full Moon through the vehicle of sound. Lying down in deep relaxation, drift away into your own inner world of restoration to the soothing sound of voice, crystal singing bowls, and percussion instruments. Arise with peace, clarity, and a greater awareness of your true self.

    $30 pre-register / $35 at door

  • Self Love Workshop with Adriana Cerundolo Feb. 9, 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.
