Restore and Recharge with Yin Yoga & Reiki

Restore & Recharge with Yin Yoga & Reiki lead by Liza Savage-Katz and Jaclyn Cellura-Crane is ideal if you are tired, over-stimulated, or experiencing an over active mind. This class is beneficial whether you are craving more energy, or feeling you have too much of it. We provide sanctuary to calm the mind and stretch the body.

Yin Yoga aims to stretch and release tension in the deeper connective tissues surrounding the joints, (ligaments, tendons and fascia). Yin postures increase flexibility, release deep-seated energies and prepare the body and mind for relaxation and meditation. These passive yet challenging yin postures consist mainly of floor poses (or can be modified to be done in a chair), which are held for 3-5 minutes at a time, encouraging the practitioner to dive inward on a physical and a mental level.

As students release into the therapeutic benefits of their yin practice, Reiki Master Jaclyn Cellura-Crane, supports individuals in attaining a deeper state of relaxation and peace. Reiki is the hands-on (or hands off), Japanese technique of energy healing. It offers stress reduction, relaxation and has had profound benefits in those who practice it. The system is based on the concept of universal energy, the energy that animates and permeates every living being. When that energy is low, one is more likely to feel stressed or sick. Likewise, when one’s energy is flowing well, health, vitality and peace are more likely to occur. With our energy in balance, we can experience ourselves and the world around us with more openness and love.

*Each class includes meditative and empowering messages, essential oils and is accompanied with relaxing music.

*Class space is limited so that everyone has hands on modifications and energy work and is open to all levels and ages. Cost is $30pp

If it feels like a fit, glow for it!

Glow stick's and black light paint will be provided to help you feel like the ultimate yogi warrior, and upbeat music will be played giving the class more of a rave atmosphere.

This class will only be open to 16 tickets and all props can be provided if needed at the studio. Please try to arrive 15-30 minutes before class to allow proper dry time for body paint. Lastly, a raffle will be going on prior to class with a winner chosen at the end. Winner receives a glow with the flow swag bag courtesy of Nu Movement. See you there!!

This circle is open to everyone with a sincere intention to bring more light and positivity to him/herself and to others. No previous experience needed, just a willingness to chant for 45min.

April Gong Sound Bath: Awaken Life Within

It's Spring and life is awakening, yet internally you might still be feeling a bit unproductive, lacking energy or just uninspired. In this class the powerful sound of the gong, paired with our personal and group intention, will help us to penetrate deep through the layers of resistance that we have built around ourselves, to allow our life force (prana) to begin to flow optimally from the inside out. When Life flows freely through us, we are able to see every day as an opportunity and as a gift, and we can live with more joy, ease, creativity and purpose.

WHAT IS A GONG BATH? A gong bath is a form of sound therapy where the gong is played in a therapeutic way to bring about balance. The term "gong bath" means that you are bathed in sound waves while laying on the floor for about 45 min, wrapped in a blanket. It is very relaxing and calming, appropriate for everybody who is craving some deep rest and a break from the ever-racing mind. The gong aligns all levels of our being (body, mind, emotions) to support healing and transformation.

POSSIBLE BENEFITS: On a physical level, the gong releases tension and blocks in the body, it stimulates a higher functioning of the glandular and nervous system, it increases prana (our vital life force) and improves circulation. It allows you to slow down and have a break from your thinking mind, release emotions and feel lighter and more free from within.

Natural Vision Improvement Workshop

Natural Vision Improvement Workshop

Have you ever wished you could improve your eyesight?   Are you tired of wearing glasses or contacts all the time?  Do you experience eye strain, headaches, brain fog, or confusion and sense a relationship with your vision or your glasses?  Would you like to avoid having your sight deteriorate as you age?  Are any of these things even possible without surgery?

Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) was a big proponent of Natural Vision Improvement as developed by New York City optometrist W.H. Bates (1860-1931) in the early twentieth century.  In addition to his work with vision, Huxley studied extensively with somatics pioneer F.M. Alexander whose work, the Alexander Technique, has sustained successful performers, thinkers and achievers worldwide for over a century.  Huxley's elegant and comprehensive book, The Art of Seeing will be the textual backdrop of this workshop.  

In our time together we will discuss how vision works, how corrective lenses work, and what the implications are for the brain and the body.  We will experiment with our eyesight and with "eye exercises" to discover something about our visual habits, so the workshop will be highly experiential.  Students will need to be prepared to take off their glasses or contact lenses while we are together, so be prepared to experience your blur in a safe and supportive environment.  You will learn specific activities for improving awareness and relaxation of eyes and brain.

Tara Sullivan has been a Certified Teacher of the Alexander Technique for 20 years and has been taking Alexander lessons since she was a teenager.  She has been a student of natural vision improvement since 2001, including working, writing and traveling extensively with Peter Grunwald.  A classically trained singer, Tara also teaches Jivamukti Yoga and her focus is always on getting to the root of things.  She has lived and taught Alexander, yoga, and vision on both coasts and internationally. www.tara-sullivan.com

Gong Sound Immersion: Open up to Abundance 3-Week Series

Gong sound immersion: Open up to Abundance 3-week series
Tuesday, March 13th, 20th and 27th | 8pm-9pm 

In this series we'll use the transformational power of the gong's vibration, as well as our own intention, to invite Abundance in our life. Is your first thought when you hear the word abundance 'money' or 'wealth'? How about abundance of time, health, emotional balance, joy, love, inner peace, passion for life, creativity, sense of purpose? The real abundance comes from within; it begins to flow to us and through us when we are connected to our true Self and in tune with our Highest purpose. The inner abundance has a strong foundation that positively reflects in our everyday life.
.  
The sound of the gong balances all aspects of our being (physical, emotional, spiritual) and it works through layers of physical tension or ingrained believes that prevent us from flowing with the fullness of the universe. Paired with a special mantra, this series will help you open the gates for meaningful prosperity to start flowing into your life.  

A gong bath is a 45 minute immersion where you are bathed with sustained waves of primordial sound. During a gong bath, listeners typically experience a sense of connectedness and peace as the sound of the gong clears blockages and restores the free flow of vital energy throughout the body. With its ability to induce a spontaneous meditative state, the gong offers access to parts of the mind that are usually closed, resulting in a sense of expanded awareness, relaxation and connection to our true Self. All you need to do is lay down on your mat, covered with a blanket, relax and let the sound wash over the body and carry the mind. 

It is highly recommended that you participate in all three classes to experience the full benefit of this series.

 3 classes: $33 / 2 classes: $24 / Individual class: $13

The series 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

Project Mantra: Begin to Chant - Free Class

Project Mantra is a free, guided program that helps you gradually build up a simple, yet powerful daily mantra chanting practice over a period of 40 days. It is perfect for beginners who want a simple, effective tool to quiet the mind, open the heart, and create a positive habit of connecting with the Divine on a daily basis. 

REDIRECT THE MIND
Mantra chanting is an effective way to control a restless mind. Through regular repetition, the mind can be trained to focus on something positive rather than the incessant inner judgments that tend to occupy our thoughts. Used for millennia by every spiritual tradition, mantras are the predecessor of modern day affirmations. 

OPEN THE HEART
The power of a mantra is not hidden in its meaning, but found in its vibrational frequency. The most powerful mantras are timeless Sanskrit names for the Divine. Each syllable creates a vibration that awakens and manifests a Divine Quality such as peace, courage, love, compassion, and acceptance.

DEVELOP A POSITIVE HABIT
It takes 40 days for the transformational power of the practice to create a permanent shift in your consciousness. During that time, you may also notice that you have a more positive outlook on life, improved concentration, greater self-awareness and less judgment toward yourself and others.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
In this course you'll learn two powerful mantras and all the details and instructions on how the 40-day project works. By joining Project Mantra, you receive ongoing support from your instructor, tips, suggestions for deepening your practice and online community support. You will also receive the blessing and energetic support of Paramahamsa Vishwananda which will sustain you and carry you deeper into the practice.

*If you have your own mala beads (japamala), bring it with. If you don't yet have one, no worries, we'll provide one for you!

Restore and Recharge with Yin Yoga & Reiki

Restore & Recharge with Yin Yoga & Reiki lead by Liza Savage-Katz and Jaclyn Cellura-Crane is ideal if you are tired, over-stimulated, or experiencing an over active mind. This class is beneficial whether you are craving more energy, or feeling you have too much of it. We provide sanctuary to calm the mind and stretch the body.

Yin Yoga aims to stretch and release tension in the deeper connective tissues surrounding the joints, (ligaments, tendons and fascia). Yin postures increase flexibility, release deep-seated energies, and prepare the body and mind for relaxation and meditation. These passive yet challenging yin postures consist mainly of floor poses (or can be modified to be done in a chair), which are held for 3-5 minutes at a time, encouraging the practitioner to dive inward on a physical and a mental level.

As students release into the therapeutic benefits of their yin practice, Reiki Master, Jaclyn Cellura-Crane, supports individuals in attaining a deeper state of relaxation and peace. Reiki is the hands-on (or hands off), Japanese technique of  energy healing. It offers stress reduction, relaxation, and has had profound benefits in those who practice it. The system is based on the concept of universal energy, the energy that animates and permeates every living being. When that energy is low, one is more likely to feel stressed or sick. Likewise, when one’s energy is flowing well, health, vitality and peace are more likely to occur. With our energy in balance, we can experience ourselves and the world around us with more openness and love.

+Each class includes meditative and empowering messages, essential oils and is accompanied with relaxing music. 

+Class space is limited so that everyone has hands on modifications and energy work and is open to all levels and ages.

Restore and Recharge with Yin Yoga & Reiki

Restore and Recharge with Yin Yoga & Reiki

Restore & Recharge with Yin Yoga & Reiki lead by Liza Savage-Katz and Jaclyn Cellura-Crane is ideal if you are tired, over-stimulated, or experiencing an over active mind.  This class is beneficial whether you are craving more energy, or feeling you have too much of it. We provide sanctuary to calm the mind and stretch the body.

Yin Yoga aims to stretch and release tension in the deeper connective tissues surrounding the joints, (ligaments, tendons and fascia). Yin postures increase flexibility, release deep-seated energies, and prepare the body and mind for relaxation and meditation. These passive yet challenging yin postures consist mainly of floor poses (or can be modified to be done in a chair), which are held for 3-5 minutes at a time, encouraging the practitioner to dive inward on a physical and a mental level.

As students release into the therapeutic benefits of their yin practice, Reiki Master, Jaclyn Cellura-Crane, supports individuals in attaining a deeper state of relaxation and peace. Reiki is the hands-on (or hands off), Japanese technique of  energy healing. It offers stress reduction, relaxation, and has had profound benefits in those who practice it. The system is based on the concept of universal energy, the energy that animates and permeates every living being. When that energy is low, one is more likely to feel stressed or sick. Likewise, when one’s energy is flowing well, health, vitality and peace are more likely to occur. With our energy in balance, we can experience ourselves and the world around us with more openness and love.

+Each class includes meditative and empowering messages, essential oils and is accompanied with relaxing music. 

+Class space is limited so that everyone has hands on modifications and energy work and is open to all ages and levels.

January Gong Sound Immersion

Who doesn't need a mini escape during these cold January days? The sacred vibration of the gong will transport you on your personal inner journey where you will experience deep relaxation and a break from your ever-active mind. Sound and vibration help facilitate a deep sense of peace, release tension and blocked energy, and balance the energy centers in the body.

A gong bath (or immersion) is a form of sound therapy where the gong is played in a therapeutic way to bring about balance. Participants lay on the floor for about 45 min, covered with a blanket. It is very relaxing and calming, appropriate for everybody who is craving some deep rest and an overall body-mind-spirit reset. 

WHAT TO BRING? You want to make yourself as comfortable and warm as possible! All props are provided at the studio, but since this class tends to fill up, please BRING YOUR OWN blanket and pillow. A bottle of water is recommended. Complimentary tea is offered at the studio.

*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.
