Winter Kirtan

January 12, 2019 

The word kirtan stems from a Sanskrit root that means to cut through. David Newman (teacher of kirtan) says kirtan is also “a practice for cutting through the idea of separation, for connecting to our hearts and connecting to the moment through sound.”

Please join us for a blissful evening enjoying the Bhakti Yoga practice of Kirtan, a tradition of singing universal mantras in a call and response format. Bhakti yoga is one of the four main yogic paths to enlightenment. Bhakti means “devotion” or “love” and this path contains various practices to unite the bhakta with the divine. One of those practices, Kirtan is the most popular path in the west, as it invites everyone to participate in whatever way feels right for them. It only requires your showing up with an open mind and a joyful spirit. During the Kirtan we will blend our voices to create a deep sense of connection to something greater than ourselves, as we purify our hearts and liberate our souls with this ancient devotional practice.

The Next Level: Close Your Eyes & Look Inside with Lorraine

January 26, 2019 

“If you change the way you look at things the things you look at change.”
~ Wayne Dyer

According to research, “We perceive up to 80% of all impressions by means of our sight.” When we stop relying on sight we give rise to our other senses. In this practice we will exercise our vestibular sense, the sense of movement and balance and where we are in space. The simple act of closing the eyes and stepping inward can enhance simple movements and allow you to feel them differently. Sometimes when the eyes are open it is difficult to focus on what matters most: you, how you feel, and what you need. The benefits of this practice may include positive change in blood pressure, an increase in self awareness, a decrease in anxiety, an appreciation for where you are in this moment, a notable calming sensation, as well as deeper feeling of relaxation. Spend some quality time with You. Close your eyes and look inside…you are amazing, one of a kind.

time: 2-4pm

The Next Level: Nidra, the Sleep of the Yogi with Jill McBurney

February 16, 2019 

Yoga nidra is an ancient practice, a guided meditation that is offered to a student who is lying down and supported by props in a place of full comfort. Learn what yoga nidra is, what is happening in the practice, and why it can be so beneficial. The experiential practice, a 35-40 minute mediation, provides opportunity to feel opposites of sensation in your physical body, explore your breath, observe the workings of your mind, feel the edges of your emotions and more. A regular practice of yoga nidra can help you welcome life as it is happening and to respond, rather than react, to every situation you encounter (yes, even the challenging ones). Time for questions and sharing will wrap up this lovely workshop.

time: 2-4pm
