Drum Alive - Yoga/Drum Fusion Workshop with James Fleischmann Sat, Sep 15, 2018 at 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

You have all the knowledge and wisdom of the universe within you. Let’s talk about how to access it. This workshop will begin with body-wisdom concepts and ways that we can access this wisdom for application in our everyday lives. You’ll come away with a greater understanding of how to hear what your body is desperately trying to say.Next comes a soulful Vinyasa Flow-style Yoga, designed to enhance body awareness, increase intuitive connection, and move stale energy. Live drumming will accompany us as we create heat throughout the flow. In addition to moving and creating more energy in our practice, the drum will lead our breath and bring you home to its power.

As you rest into your final savasana, the drum will offer you one final gift. Through a process called “entrainment,” your brainwaves will sync to the beat of the drum, reducing the speed of your mind effortlessly to the meditative “theta-state.” You’ll float in this state until we bring you back at the end of the workshop, all the while receiving Reiki and the healing resonance of the drum.

The DRUMMING ALIVE workshop is a fusion of yoga, drum healing, Reiki, and body-wisdom teachings that will help you to:

- Learn to hear the authentic Wisdom of your body
- Cultivate Present Moment Awareness
- Enter a deep meditative theta-state (i.e. deep peace & intuition) effortlessly via Drum Entrainment
- Move stagnant energy in Soul-flow Vinyasa Yoga
- Change your cells' vibration with Live Drumming
- Connect to the Healing Power of your breath
- Bathe in the healing energy of Reiki

All levels welcome!

Important notes:
- Drum entrainment directly affects the brainwaves. Discretion is advised for those with a history of epilepsy.

About the instructors:
Teela's main objective is to welcome her students back into their own skin. She teaches body awareness, but more than that, she teaches body love and loving the present moment, just as it is. Through a blend of vinyasa-flow yoga and trauma-releasing techniques, her instruction allows students an opportunity to clear a space inside of themselves big enough for their truth to bloom into. Her students leave class feeling more whole, alive, free, and worthy of the space they take up.

Together, she and her partner James create an immersive, body-awakening experience, sure to drum up some divine inner wisdom from the long-muted depths.

James fell in love with the drum as a child. He played professionally and toured nationally for eight years before leaving the music scene to travel the world and experience new cultures. Upon his return, he went headlong into the business world. And that’s when everything changed.

He realized he had achieved his dreams and felt completely unfulfilled. Worse, he felt numb to the world and to himself. After a series of jarring experiences, James left the corporate world and looked inward. His journey eventually took him to South America, where his passions were rekindled and he encountered the ancient traditions of shamanic drumming and sonic healing. At last, the many facets of his life came together and he answered the call.

After unwittingly using the drum as a form of self-healing for 26 years, James founded Resonada and began working with sound in a new way. The primary intention he holds in his work is to reconnect himself and others with something long forgotten and essential - the primal self.

Autumnal Equinox Mala-Making Workshop with Maria Renna Thu, Sep 27, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
“Autumn ... the year’s last, loveliest smile.” – William C. Bryant

Fall is a season for balancing light and dark, letting go, and accepting the impermanence of things.
The Autumnal Equinox is a time of harvest, transition, release and gratitude – giving thanks for all the abundance the previous months have brought while beckoning us to prepare emotionally and physically for what is to come. It is a time to find balance and clarity and, as the cooler weather invites us inside, the change of seasons reminds us of the quiet, restorative, introspective months to follow.
Let’s celebrate this season of harvest and growth while creating a sacred MALA necklace which will serve as a reminder of this abundant season. We will be using gemstones associated with Autumn – think colors of the earth and leaves! Come create with the grounding energies of RED JASPER, GARNET, and CARNELIAN; attract abundance and bounty with MOSS AGATE, and AVENTURINE; celebrate growth and change with DENDRITIC AGATE (tree agate), invite clarity with FLUORITE ... and more. Before stringing our malas, we will begin with a sweet meditation focused on the beauty of the Fall months ahead!
If possible, register in advance and reserve your choice.
$100 investment includes all material, instruction & meditation.

Translating the Practice of Yoga into a Language Kids Understand and Enjoy

Our Tween Yoga training targets a narrow age range between 9 and 13 years old, and is designed to guide participants in how to leverage yoga to bridge the gap between "child" and "teenager." This training begins by covering techniques associated with teaching asanas to this age group, and pose variations that are best suitable to a Tween’s changing body. The training discusses pranayama and meditation at length and how both tools can help mitigate stress and anxiety and promote healthy self-regulation. This 12 hour training is designed to deconstruct yogic concepts and philosophies and translate them into concepts and activities that are relatable to Tweens in order to support their everyday life. You will leave feeling inspired and empowered to bring yoga to this impressionable and sensitive age group.
