Class & Workshop Descriptions

SHAKTI'S FLOW WITH MARCUS CAMMUSE

This uplifting subtle flow is centered on opening the 12 meridians durinng beautiful movement. Students will learn virtuousness mantras and tones to illuminate the soul and 7 chakras. Asanas will be practiced with full meridian activation with the accompanying element. This awareness brings students into harmony with themselves and our universe, students will become familiar with elemental strengths and weaknesses which explain the balance of life. 

 

STRONG SPINES, SOFT HEART WITH KIM LOMONACO

Our spines are a crucial structure and energetic hub in our bodies. Develop strength and intelligence around your spine, so you may present to the world with a soft heart. Through simplified anatomic exploration and embodied practice of asana and pranayama, we will connect the condition of our spine, our lifelong pillar of support, to our capacity for Compassion. 

MUGWORT MOXABUSTION WITH VICTORIA TAYLOR

Artemis Vulgaris is a common mugwort.  In this class participants will learn how to use this herb externally to enhance family health.  We will cover tthe energetics, the benefits, various methods and uses. Everyone will have an opportunity to experience moxabustion and will receive materials for home use.

EARTH MANDALA WORKSHOP WITH SHELLEY MANGOLD

Raising environmental awareness, we will create a large ephemeral group art installation that will be left to weather or blow away at the end of the festival. If time allows, we will create a smaller expressive mandala, which we will take only pictures and not leave it behind.

BALANCE & STRENGTHEN YOUR AURA WITH BRANDON HAMILTON

When your aura is strong and balanced you are able to attract the things you need for your life's mission, your approachable and radiant and it will boost your immune system to keep you from getting sick. We will end with the prosperity meditation that was given for when you need money. 

JUICE DETOX CLASS WITH NICOLE FEY, HHC

Juicing is incredible for turning your health around! The key to vibrant health is to detoxify the body of life-depleting chemicals and to deeply nourish the cells with vitamins and minerals from raw, whole foods. In this class you will learn the benefits and principles of a juicing as well as how to start and maintain your juicing program.

FINDING CENTER WITH SVAROOPA YOGA WITH AJEET KHALSA

"When I found yoga, I had to learn how to breath". Swami Nirmalananda 

Svaroopa Yoga uses ancient techniques to give you the experience of its name: svaroopa - your own inner Self.  Finding your center means having time to go deep within, listening and witnessing your breath then allowing the angles of each pose to relieve core stress and tension in the body, spine, mind and more.   In Svaroopa yoga there is less doing and more allowing. Getting the pose lined up first allows you to find laser focus from within; lying still, your body is then allowed to restore, heal and deeply relax, this allows you to reliably come home to center again and again.

Mantra & Meditation: A Chanting Workshop with Ajeet Khalsa

Mantra is a word or sound repeated to aid concentration in meditation. Lama Karma says meditation is getting familiar with your natural state. I understand meditation as a way to get beyond your mind to discover a deeper dimension within. Learn powerful, yet easy meditations that you can take with you anytime and anywhere. Find out how easy it is to get past the inner obstacles using simple sounds and words. We will be using a traditional raga form of meditation as well as mantra from the Hatha and Kundalini traditions. Be prepared to sit with a cushion and mala if you like. I love to do chanting and meditation every day.
