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

Detox Time: Spring Yin with Matt Rolin

March 23, 2019 

When we hear Spring Detox, really it’s all about the Liver. The liver is responsible for filtering, detoxifying, nourishing, replenishing, and storing blood. Think of this 2-hour Yin session as Spring cleaning for the body, heart and mind. A detoxifying practice focused on the outer hips.

Physical Imbalances: Liver function is reflected externally in the condition of finger and toenails and by the eyes and vision.

Emotional Imbalances: The liver governs growth and development, drive and desires, ambitions and creativity. Obstruction of liver energy can cause intense feelings of frustration, rage, and anger… as well as irritability, resentment, jealousy and depression.

When Balanced: Kindness, benevolence, compassion, and generosity.

What are you waiting for?

time: 2-4pm
cost: $24 ($20 for Inspired Path members)

Spring Kirtan with Erick Herlong & Friends

April 6, 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.

• Time: 7-9pm
• Cost: donations
