CLASSICAL YOGA NIDRA WITH NANCY RICH
Wed, Nov 28 at 7:30pm - 9:00pm
For those who believe in the power and the beauty of their dreams, Classical Yoga Nidra is the perfect vehicle. The sessions are done laying down or sitting and are appropriate for EVERYONE, regardless of perceived limitation. Participants are guided into a profound, deep state of relaxed awareness, between awake and asleep, where they activate the forces of the universe that create the reality that they want to experience. Yoga Nidra allows us to heal deeply held patterns of energy in our bodies, manifest health and wellness, and consciously create whatever it is that we want to create for ourselves in this lifetime! Tap into your innate, unlimited potential to heal and to dream your life’s dreams into reality. Experience the peace and joy that you are.
WINTER "CALLING IN THE LIGHT" MALA-MAKING WORKSHOP WITH MARIA RENNA
Sun, Dec 2 at 1:00pm - 4:00pm
The Winter Solstice, which arrives later in the month of December, marks a shift in daylight, when we begin to emerge from the darkness back into the light. As the long, dark days of Winter approach, we are urged to call on the light within us. Join us in appreciation of the darkness which serves to illuminate our own inner light. Allow your inner light to give you inner sight, to see what needs to be seen and hear what needs to be heard! Let’s celebrate this season of quiet and peacefulness while creating a sacred mala necklace which will serve as a reminder of this introspective season. We will be creating with gemstones especially selected for Winter’s energy or to support the light within. As always, we’ll begin in a restorative pose and seasonal meditation. Mala simply means garland in Sanskrit, the sacred language of yoga. Japa (meaning repetition) malas have been used for centuries to steady the mind in meditation. Give yourself this gift of creating a special mala with meaning and intention, or perhaps create one as a thoughtful gift for a loved one.
WINTER MEDITATION & RESTORATIVE YOGA WORKSHOP WITH MARGARET JENNINGS
Fri, Dec 7 at 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Ease into seasonal changes with a calming restorative class. Just as our bodies have muscle memory, so does our mind and spirit. The more we practice deep relaxation, the more we can access a sense of peace when life brings us challenges. In this workshop, you will learn tools to build resiliency in managing anxiety and stress through easeful movement, supported rest, and a powerful meditation technique from master teacher Dandapani. What we cultivate on our mats follows us off the mat. You will leave feeling relaxed, refreshed and empowered to manage the stresses of life!

SOUND JOURNEY WITH YVONNE SUZUKI LICOPOLI
Sat, Dec 29 at 5:00pm - 6:15pm
Lie in savasana while Yvonne Suzuki Licopoli guides you through a healing journey on the wings of pure and perfect sound. This is not a performance, but a sacred sound experience created by the transformative powers of the tonal vibrations of gongs, crystal alchemy singing bowls and other exotic instruments. You will feel the peaceful energy of harmonic resonance as it permeates your body at a cellular level, inducing deep relaxation as chakras align. Sound Journeys are held on or near full moon days, when the earth’s energy is greatest and most beneficial for healing.
