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.

PRICING: $20 single class drop in / $80 for full 4 Week Series - this includes a workbook with practical energetic, self-care, and wellness practices to assist in times of transition & one twenty-minute private support session with Adair or Ved Bachan

Project Mantra: Begin to Chant

Project Mantra: Begin to Chant

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 you.

*The worksop is free, however small donations will be collected to help cover the studio rent's cost.

Glow with the Flow

Join instructor Kelsey Cretekos for an energizing open level Vinyasa Flow under black lights! This is a unique and intimate class that Nu Movement is excited to offer for the third time where the Studio / Art Gallery is completely transformed into a black light party! Unlike a typical class, practicing in near darkness makes you more cognizant of your surroundings—your brain relies on heightened awareness from senses other than vision to process sensory information in order to stay balanced. 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!!

OM Chanting to Support Separated Families

Please join us for this FREE event and add your voice to this special OM chanting in which we'll unite our voices to send the mantra OM to families who have been separated. Our intention will be to send them peace, love and healing support. Sometimes, when we feel that we can't do much, prayer paired with a positive intention is the highest and most important form of help that we can offer. It has been scientifically measured that when people unite with the same intention positive change begins to happen. 

May all beings everywhere be happy and free.

EXPERIENCE THE POWER OF OM
OM chanting is a powerful technique that promotes inner peace, mental clarity, emotional freedom and physical health. Many experience positive shifts which allow them to enjoy more peace, joy and love in their lives. 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.

Due to a special blessing by Mahavatar Babaji and Parmahamsa Vishwananda, OM chanting generates a vibrational frequency that releases negativity, transforms it and showers participants with positive energy. The vibrational waves created by the circle spread out in the environment, creating more peace and unity between humans and nature.

Yoga Props 101: Bolsters, Blocks & Straps

Join instructor Kelsey Cretekos for this 90 minute workshop on how and when to use Yoga Props to get the most out of your Yoga practice!

We will walk through a basic vinyasa sequence breaking down each asana “pose” and discover how a block, bolster or strap may be helpful. Props can be an essential part of your practice with the knowledge of how to use them. 

The intention is to create a safe, casual space, where students can ask questions and maybe find a pose that they will continuously grab a prop for, no matter what the class!

Whether you have been practicing for years or just trying out yoga, we hope this way of introducing props will allow all students to unlock a new element to their practice. 

*There will also be a raffle for those participating to win a yoga block! Only $15pp
