Kundalini & the Vayus Monthly Series w/Shannon Earthtree

 

Fourth Saturday of each month, begins July 30, 8am (90 mins), Cost: all regular passes apply; $30 drop-in

Offered the fourth Saturday of every month, beginning in July and continuing through October @ 8-9:30am.

In this 4 part series, we will focus on the Vayus in the tradition of Kundalini Yoga. The Vayus give us a way to understand and feel how energy flows in the body. If you would like to be more in touch with your energetic system, this is for you!

You have probably heard of Prana, and maybe Apana. If you study yogic philosophy, you know there is also Udana, Samana, and Vyana to explore. We will experience each of these forces, the elements, parts of the body, and movement they each relate to.

The Vayus are a rich and vast field to study. This new (or refreshed) understanding will deepen your yogic practices.

See you on July 30th at 8am for our first exploration together. Can’t wait!

All are welcome:) Please attend as many as you can make it to.

Sacred Sound Cacao Ceremony

 

Sunday, July 31, 7pm and Sunday, August 21, 7pm

Cost: $45 per session

 

The sacred spirit plant medicine of Cacao brings harmony to the planet by internally balancing each person that consumes it. Cacao opens the heart and mind allowing us to access deeper parts of ourselves. It accelerates healing, enhances creativity and improves focus giving us the opportunity to release the inner pain and struggle.

We will start the ceremony with a blessing and set intention while we drink the cacao. During this dialogue and as the cacao begins to take effect, we will transition into a deeper state of relaxation with sacred sound.

We suggest minimizing eating two hours before the ceremony to optimize the full benefits of the cacao. We will be seated or reclined for the duration of the ceremony so please brings a yoga mat and whatever you may require to be comfortable on the floor.

Sound Bath for Optimal Health w/Steven & Leah Smith

 

Sunday, July 17, 7pm and Sunday, August 7, 7pm

Cost: $35 per session

The gong and crystal bowls are a psycho-acoustic gateway to heightened states of awareness and consciousness. The overtones and undertones of these instruments create a field of harmonics that stimulate the cells of our body to vibrate in harmony, restoring balance through deep states of relaxation. The sound waves and frequencies generated during this session alter our brainwave patterns, moving us from high beta (waking state) to alpha, then theta and even into delta (deep
rest).

When this happens the sympathetic nervous system (flight or fight response) cools off and the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest response) is activated, resulting in healing on a molecular level. Everything in the whole universe is vibrating all the time – even things that appear still and even the cells of our bodies. Come vibrate with us and regain your health and wellbeing.
