Restorative and Reiki Workshop with Danielle and Melanie
Saturday, December 6th, 2:00 - 4:30pm

You’re invited to feel the amazing benefits of Restorative Yoga practice and Reiki healing touch. Restorative Yoga is a gentle style of yoga that encourages conscious relaxation. Restorative postures elicit the “relaxation response,” a feature of the parasympathetic nervous system, which balances the body and mind. In Restorative Yoga, we breathe with awareness and practice the art of letting go, of being rather than doing. This state of deep relaxation not only alleviates stress but also strengthens the immune system while generating serenity and peace of mind. This workshop will include the nurturing, relaxing and healing touch of Reiki.
$35 pre-registration; $45 day of.

FEBRUARY 2015

Weekend Workshops with Special Guest Rolf Sovik
Dharma & Karma from the Teachings of the Bhagavad Gita  
Friday, February 6th, 12:30-5:30pm
The philosophy of yoga offers a broad and penetrating understanding of life--one that connects seamlessly with yoga practice. Among the most important philosophical texts in yoga is the Bhagavad Gita, a treasure house of teachings written in the form of an intimate conversation between student and spiritual guide. There you will find answers to questions raised during a period of deep doubt and anguish--questions and answers
that redefine the nature of yoga itself. Discover how the healing elements of yoga form a natural starting place for practice; how efforts to act from within one’s own nature lead to peace of mind and heart; and how a fundamental understanding of the path of karma yoga makes sense of everyday actions. Discover how your personal practice of yoga links you to these themes, and in the process create a healing perspective that will enliven you and give you new sustenance in your inward journey.

Moving Inward: A Journey to Meditation 
Sat & Sun, February 7th & 8th, 12:30-5:30pm

Meditation is an art carried out in silence in the inner dimensions of your being. It is a systematic method, addressing every aspect of inner life. The process of learning to meditate is a fascinating journey that continues to intrigue even experienced practitioners. In meditation you are guided on a path of self-acceptance,self-observation, and inner quietude. These workshops will address all the basic elements of practice including the essentials of comfortable sitting, natural relaxed breathing, reducing stress levels, sharpening attention, and developing intuition. Learn to observe your mind and cultivate a mental focus, even in the midst of distracting thoughts and emotions.
Reading: Moving Inward, By Rolf Sovik
Each session: $85 pre-registration; $95 day of. All three days: $255 pre-registration only.
