July Gong Sound Bath: Summer Relaxation

Our Summers are filled with lots of activity; days are long and so we can get so much more work and fun in! That is fantastic but ... how about an hour of pure disconnect, like a mental vacay? An hour to just be with yourself and have no agenda? This session will offer a mindful break for you to simply rest, slow down, reconnect with yourself and get massaged down to the cellular level by the wonderful sound waves of the Gong.

BENEFITS OF A GONG SOUND BATH: Every gong sound bath offers a sweet opportunity to release, rest, reflect and renew, as well as create space within ourselves, especially our thinking patterns and emotions. Since we are not just our body, the vibration of the gong penetrates through all aspects of our being (body, mind, emotions). Gong baths are balancing and uplifting. They offer the kind of deep mental rest that leaves you so refreshed and renewed that you'll feel like a new person.

CLASS STRUCTURE: During a gong sound bath you'll  lay on the floor for about 45 min, covered with a blanket, and just relax. That's it! Just pure relaxation with incredible effects. No movement is involved. All props are provided at the studio, however for maximum coziness please bring your own pillow and blanket. Dress comfortably. 
This class is led by gong master Vesna Sanders (Eeshavasya Dasi).

*A Gong Bath is not recommended for pregnant women, people with sensitivity to sound or conditions such as Tinnitus, Menieres and Epilepsy, or people with metal Implants, pins, screws or pacemakers.

May Gong Sound Bath: Unconditional Love

May Gong Sound Bath: Unconditional Love

When we think of unconditional love, mothers absolutely come to our mind! The way a mother loves her child is beyond understanding and sometimes all rationally. It just is. When we love unconditionally we don't ask anything in return but we are happy to simply serve the other person, and that brings us the highest joy. During this class we'll invoke the Divine Mother through the sacred Gayatri Mantra. We'll ask Her to help us love ourselves and others more unconditionally, to feel loved like a child (perhaps even in ways we never have been) and to fill us completely with that Love so that we have plenty of it to give to ourselves and others. 

When the vibration of the gong is sent through our body, this helps each and every one of our cells to achieve more balance and to vibrate higher. And since we are not just our body, the vibration penetrates through all aspects of our being. We'll send the vibration of the highest Love to every part of of ourselves. 

CLASS STRUCTURE: During a gong sound bath participants lay on the floor for about 45 min, covered with a blanket, and relax. No movement is involved. All props are provided at the studio, however for maximum coziness bring your own pillow and blanket. Dress comfortably. 

This class is led by gong master Vesna Sanders (Eeshavasya Dasi).

*A Gong Bath is not recommended for pregnant women, people with sensitivity to sound or conditions such as Tinnitus, Menieres and Epilepsy, or people with metal Implants, pins, screws or pacemakers.

April Gong Sound Bath: Spring Cleanse

It's Spring. We all feel the need to open up our windows and get rid of old stuff. The real cleanse, however, has to happen internally for us to feel that much needed sense of lightness, joy and excitement to embrace the new! The gong can help us to go more effectively through this process.

When the vibration of the gong is sent through our body, this helps each and every one of our cells to achieve more balance and to vibrate higher. And since we are not just our body, the vibration penetrates through all aspects of our being. The intention of this gong sound will be to purify all within us that is old and stale. And to open our inner windows so that the new and fresh can come in! It will be just like Spring cleaning, but for our body, mind and emotions.

CLASS STRUCTURE: During a gong sound bath participants lay on the floor for about 45 min, covered with a blanket, and relax. No movement is involved. All props are provided at the studio, however for maximum coziness bring your own pillow and blanket. Dress comfortably.

This class is led by gong master Vesna Sanders (Eeshavasya Dasi).

March Gong Sound Bath: Forgive and be Free Part 2

March Gong Sound Bath: Forgive and be Free Part 2

This session will continue focusing on letting go of some of our negative emotions associated with being stuck, ether in the past or present moment. The powerful vibration of the gong will help us to create room for the liberating action of forgiveness. 

True forgiving is an inner action that has nothing to do with another person or situation - it actually liberates us! If we say we have forgiven (someone, or ourselves, life itself, a situation ...) but we have only done it on the outside, we are still energetically bound to that person or situation. We perceive that as being stuck, unable to move on, anxious or sad. The vibration of the gong and our intention to create real resolution will help us penetrate through these heavy energetic bonds. It will support us to truly forgive and live our lives with more joy and freedom. 

CLASS STRUCTURE: During a gong sound bath participants lay on the floor for about 45 min, covered with a blanket. No movement is involved. All props are provided at the studio, however for maximum coziness bring your own pillow and blanket. Dress comfortably. 

This class is led by gong master Vesna Sanders (Eeshavasya Dasi).

Art & Flow Yoga: Awakening Self Expression with Affirmations

“Happiness, not in another place, but this place…not for another hour, but for this hour.” ~ Walt Whitman

The Art and Flow Yoga practice pairs yoga with playful art explorations intended to reconnect you with your creative nature. Each mini art experience invites you to connect with the process of creating, discovering and expressing inner imagery along side a mindful yoga practice.

Our March theme will be centered on affirmations. We will begin class by painting papers intuitively with a variety of colors. A short journaling prompt will bring about heart storms of words or phrases that we will be use to create our own personal affirmations.

Our yoga practice portion that follows, begins with a brief mediation followed by a 40 minute gentle yoga flow sequence. We will use the rest of the time to begin creating our affirmation cards. I hope you will join us for this body, mind and spirit experience.

to Mar 25

Kundalini Yoga Foundations: 4 Week Introduction

Kundalini is known as the yoga of awareness. Using intelligent sequencing of posture (kriyas), breath work (pranayama), mantra and meditation, this transformative practice activates, shifts and reorganizes stagnant energy. It is an excellent way to strengthen the body and nervous system while accessing deeper states of clarity, calm, and perspective.

Ideal for beginning and experienced yogis, this series of classes is tailored towards those with no or limited experience practicing kundalini yoga, as well as those who want a better foundational understanding of what the practice is all about. We will be returning to the same practice for all 4 weeks as repeating a kundalini practice helps with building self-knowledge and mastery, therefore strengthening its effects.

This series is offered every Monday in the month of March from 5:30 - 7:00pm with Adair Finucane, LMSW. Adair is a social worker, artist, horse woman, and a passionate teacher and practitioner of hatha and kundalini yoga. Her classes are warm, inviting, and geared towards accessibility.

Drop-ins welcome - attend all 4 classes or any single class in this series.

Pricing: $15/class or $55 for all 4

February Gong Sound Bath: Open Yourself to Love

The absence of fear is Love. In our lives we experience true, unconditional love very rarely, but in reality we ARE that Love. We just don't know it because we cover it up with fear and too much thinking. When you get even just a small glimpse of pure, Divine Love, you are at peace, you are free, you are joyful and filled with clarity and purpose. The gong can help you to experience that Love because it works on removing "stuff" that's in the way to your (spiritual) heart and your real Self.

We'll dedicate February's Gong Sound Bath to opening ourselves to unconditional love so that we can experience it, and share it with others during the "month of love' with a renewed understanding, and in a meaningful way.

CLASS STRUCTURE: During a gong sound bath participants lay on the floor for about 45 min, covered with a blanket. No movement is involved. All props are provided at the studio, however for maximum coziness bring your own pillow and blanket. Dress comfortably.

This class is led by gong master Vesna Sanders (Eeshavasya Dasi).

*A Gong Bath is not recommended for pregnant women, people with sensitivity to sound or conditions such as Tinnitus, Menieres and Epilepsy, or people with metal Implants, pins, screws or pacemakers.

Attend all 4 classes or any single class during this series from 2/4 - 2/25

In these four workshops, we will explore ways of shifting perspective and encouraging our sensitivities to work in our favor. Using a blend of yoga practices (hatha, kundalini kriyas, meditations, breath work, mantra, contemplative techniques and healing gong relaxation), we will explore:

  • Extending the aura/magnetic field to protect personal energy

  • Neutralizing nervous thought patterns to promote brain function and enhance clear thinking

  • Strengthening the nervous system to buffer against negativity and anxiety

  • Gaining capacity and caliber to deal with the inevitable changes in life

  • Recharging and enrich our energy to feel lighter, more energized, and hopeful!

“We are each given the strength to encounter life and life's challenges. We have moral strength, mental strength, emotional strength, and physical strength. All these strengths are inter-connected. We block the flow of that strength when we experience feelings of anger, self-defeat, and blame.” -Yogi Bhajan

January Gong Sound Bath: A Winter Sanctuary

Did you know that Gong sound baths can be a sacred time that you dedicate just to yourself and to feeding your soul? No agenda, nothing to do or change ... just the sound waves washing over you. There is a special power in pausing and opening yourself up to the timeless vibration of the gong. During such pauses positive shifts happen - shifts that can help you to create more inner space, clarity and enthusiasm that will fuel your Winter, and your life in general.

CLASS STRUCTURE: Gong sound bath participants are continuously amazed at its ability to "shut the brain down" and create a sense of aliveness in the body.

Kundalini Yoga + Gong: 4 Week Series

Every Sunday in January: 1/6 - 1/27 ( 5:00 - 6:30pm )

Returning Home: Healing and opportunity in the midst of change…this will be our intention. Doors close, and doors open: times of transition and change bring opportunities to grow and consciously open to new experiences. This series of four workshops is dedicated to a process of healing and stepping into our own power.

With the practice of Kundalini & Hatha Yoga, we will move through the physical, mental, emotional and energetic bodies, clearing and strengthening them. In every class we will practice the yoga kriyas, meditations, mantras and contemplative techniques. These efficient and effective rhythmic practices will assist in brightening the light within, burning away darkness and fear, and deepening the recognition of happiness within ourselves.

The addition of the gong, a sacred and ancient instrument of healing and rejuvenation, brings additional benefits. The gong helps to relax, regulate and balance the systems of the body, calm the mind, activate neurotransmitters, re-pattern the magnetic field, reduce stress, balance the chakras and clear away negative energy leaving you feeling refreshed, relieved and with a deeper sense of peace than you may have ever experienced!

We will focus on:

• Compassionately releasing unwanted, toxic, or stagnant energy & Identifying fears & negative patterns

• Practicing techniques for moving through difficult emotions & tapping into our own independent source of energy to hone in on our relationship to our intuition & open the heart to new opportunities

**These classes are open to all; they will be particularly helpful for those who are working through the impact of ending a relationship, job or facing other challenging changes and transitions.

Art & Flow Yoga: Restore and Envision

“Your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.” ~ Albert Einstein

The Art and Flow Yoga practice pairs yoga with playful art explorations intended to reconnect you with your creative nature. Each mini art experience invites you to connect with the process of creating, discovering and expressing inner imagery along side a mindful yoga practice.

Our January theme will be centered on creating vision boards to inspire, clarify, and focus us towards manifesting our year ahead goals. We will cut images, quotes, and words that have meaning to us and arrange them in an intuitively pleasing way.

Our practice begins with a brief mediation followed by a 40 minute restorative yoga practice. We will use the rest of the time to begin creating our vision boards. I hope you will join us for this body, mind and spirit experience.

All materials are provided, however feel free to bring images or magazines of your own. Tea will also be offered. $15 for one ticket or $25 for you and a friend!
