Pre and Post Natal Yoga

Pre and Post Natal Yoga

prenatal-pregnant-woman-yoga-pose2.jpg

In this now regularly scheduled class, we'll explore the benefits of Yoga during pregnancy, birth, and beyond. Pregnancy and Yoga work symbiotically. As a woman becomes more in touch with her body and mind by practicing mindfulness with the use of breathing techniques and yoga movements, she will already have cultivated rituals and practices to aid in a positive birth and acclamation to motherhood after birth. The health benefits of yoga extend off the mat into birth and beyond to promote not only the baby’s health but for the mother simultaneously. Similar to other types of prenatal preparation classes, yoga gives women and families an outlet to stay physically healthy, while also receiving balance between the mind and body, bringing confidence into the birth and beyond into motherhood.

The yogic exercises (asana) softly stimulate reproductive organs, gently open and strengthen the pelvis, and create space between the hip bones, ultimately building stability and ease to support the journey of pregnancy and healing after birth. The practice of meditation and breathing exercises (pranayama) raise levels of awareness, relax the mother’s body and mind, and offer tools to cope with the pain during contractions and the stresses of adjusting to life with a newborn.

All stages of motherhood and yoga levels welcome.

Sign up by purchasing a drop-in or class card.

Card Reading Circle

to Oct 20

Card Reading Circle

FullSizeRender 25.jpg

Join Katie Burke at Joy of Yoga each Friday Sept 8 through Oct 20, 12:30-1:30pm for a card reading circle.

Have you ever wondered if your higher guidance is trying to give you messages? We each have access to multiple dimensions of guidance who exist beyond "normal reality" where time and space are much more flexible.

Katie Burke will lead an hour long group session where she brings forth a message to each person in attendance from their Ascended Master guides. These guides are only interested in your highest path and working in collaboration with your higher self to clearly show you the next steps that are in your best interest. Each person will leave with a message from the Ascended Master realm. In interest of everyone receiving a message, these sessions are limited to ten registrants. During the session the messages and guides that show up for others are related to other aspects of your life as well, so the entire experience is coordinated to serve the highest good of all present.

How are the Ascended Masters different from Angels? They are closely related and many times their presence feels similar! However, Ascended Master guides have walked the planet in human form and have "graduated" or Ascended to their next level of service to humanity beyond space and time as we know it.

Some of the Ascended Masters that Katie works with in her practice (but not all) are:
Mother Mary
Mary Magdalene & her twin flame Jesus
Hathor and the Hathor Star Nation
Green Tara and the 21 emanations of Tara.
Quan Yin
Moses
St. Germain

Limited to 10 participants
Each session is $15 per person

Essential Oils with Katie Burke

to Oct 23

Essential Oils with Katie Burke

essentialoiltesttubes-845x516.jpg

We all know that essential oils smell great, but they do so much more than delight your senses. Join Katie Burke in this series, where we will learn how to harness the medicinal power of these potent drops to amplify the effects of healing in our systems. There are many ways to tap into the therapeutic effects of an essential oil and we explore many of them during these 4 weeks.

Week 1: Easy Essential Oils
We will start the series with understanding what an essential oil is and how to use these powerful allies. Therapeutic grade essential oils are incredibly supportive to our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. In this class we will go over how to infuse all parts of your every day life with natural products. An essential oil is the immune system of a plant, and it works perfectly to support the human body, too. To extract these oils from their original plant material, they are distilled or cold pressed, and then put into a bottle for our use. In this class we will go over many different ways the oil of a plant can support us. In this class you will be able to experience essential oils in a hands on way, You can use these essential oils in 3 different ways – aromatically, topically, and internally (we will talk about when that might be right for you). The molecules of essential oils are so small that they can penetrate our human cells with ease, this is part of the reason that they are so powerful! After application these oils are in your bloodstream in about 20 minutes. So let’s take advantage of these powerful plant allies and put them to work in our every day lives!

Week 2: Essential Oils in your Yoga & Meditation Practice
Learn the benefits of bringing bottles of essential oil to your yoga & meditation practice! From deep muscle relief to clearing space - there are oils for that! In this class we will go over the frequency of the human body and the frequency of the plants, how they effect our brainwaves and physical body. In essence (pun intended) we are literally talking about raising your vibration just through essential oils. Fascinating stuff!! You will walk away with a better understanding how to utilize the power of essential oils in your every day yoga and meditation practice and exactly which plant allies to reach for and why.

Week 3: Essential Oils & The Chakras
We will go through the Chakras system to explore where we can support our energy centers with the assistance of these powerful plant allies. Using essential oils to anoint and activate our energy centers! We'll dive in and talk about each chakra, what it does, and what oils can help support that chakra - and how to apply them, where to use them! Essential oils can be used to clear our energy centers, open our chakras and help us feel more grounded and clear. One by one we will work up the Chakra system and talk about how to utilize essential oils to enhance what is already within us.

Week 4: Emotional Support & Balance with Essential Oils
Did you know that our energy can get out of balance because we absorb the negativity on TV and in the world around us? I bet you did. And When our energy is low, in any part of our body, our body’s natural immune response can be negatively impacted? But, not to worry! You have support and you're not at the will of others' negativity. We actually can DO something to help ourselves and our plant friends as essential oils are one option. We can't control our surroundings but we can control our reactions and how we process emotion and energy. Essential oils can definitely help us deal with what happens around us in a healthier, more positive manner. Peaceful thoughts and spiritual harmony can come easily with the power of using Essential Oils. In this class we will use six different oil blends on different areas of our physical body to activate support and wellbeing in our emotional body.

You can attend a single class or the entire series at a discounted price.

Yoga Philosophy: Patanjali's Yoga Sutras 3-Part Autumn Series

6:00pm 6:00pm

Yoga Philosophy: Patanjali's Yoga Sutras 3-Part Autumn Series

Yoga Philosophy: Patanjali's Yoga Sutras
3-Part Summer Series with Glenna

Part 1: September 10
Exploring The Yoga Sutras: What is yoga?
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (100-1000CE) are the first texts where we see a manual for the practices of yoga. Patanjali, teacher and author, compiled the practices of yoga and developed them into an 8-part system. These texts are one of the greatest influences on modern yoga. This workshop will look at The Sutras through the lense of the tantra (the philosophy that dominated India 550-1250CE). We will explore the definition of yoga as offered by Pantanjali and what it means to our practice today. Bring a journal. Come ready to listen and share in conversation, asana, pranayama, and meditation. (Reading your favorite copy of The Yoga Sutras is recommended, but not required).

Part 2: October 8
Exploring The Yoga Sutras: The Yamas
Yoga is often referred to as an 8-fold path. These 8-limbs of yoga are first shared in The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. This workshop will explore the first of these eight limbs, The Yamas, also known as behavioral restraints or external virtues. We will discuss what these five yamas are and what they might mean to our practice today. Bring a journal. Come ready to listen and share in conversation, asana, pranayama, and meditation. (Reading your favorite copy of The Yoga Sutras is recommended, but not required).

Part 3: November 12
Exploring The Yoga Sutras: The Niyamas
The 8-limbs of yoga are first shared in The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The Niyamas are the second in the 8-fold path of yoga. However, they are not often discussed in a modern yoga class. Niyama, known as internal restraints and observances, are five of the greatest tools for any yoga practitioner. This workshop will contemplate Pantanjali's meaning of the niyamas and how we can honor them in our daily practice and life. Bring a journal. Come ready to listen and share in conversation, asana, pranayama, and meditation.

$20 per workshop or
$50 for the series
Sundays, 6-7:30pm.

Gong Bath Sessions

Gong Sessions: 4 Part Series with Pati Pellerito

Manifesting with the New Moon and Essential Oils

Essential oils and yoga Nidra.jpg

Join Joy and Mary for an hour and half of radical self care. Through the use of essential oils and restorative postures we will re-establish a deeper sense of balance for the body mind heart and spirit. Through gentle yoga and the use of essential oils, we will learn to relax deeper, activate healing, clarity and focus. Essential oils and yoga postures go together naturally, amplifying the benefits of one another making for a deeper experience of self care and mindfulness.

Harnessing the energies of your natural world like the phases of the moon and plant medicine, can help us skillfully navigate the ups and downs of everyday life. How we can use these tools and harness this potent energy of our natural world will be the focus of this class. We will begin with a short information session with Mary Shackleford, who will teach us about the essential oils we'll use for class; their practical, emotional and spiritual applications. Next, we'll move through a fluid yoga practice while learning about the energy of our new moon in Virgo and the practical, emotional and spiritual applications of this energy. Class will close with a guided meditation.

New Moons are a time for planting seeds of intention and powerful agents for change. They're an invitation to turn inward and listen to the intuitive communication coming from within. We will learn how to harness the power of this particular phase of the moon to set intentions and lay the groundwork for manifesting your vision over the next lunar cycle.

Accompanying us on this journey will be our plant allies. Through the use of essential oils, we will learn how aromatherapy can be a powerful co-creator and how we can use our sense of smell to help connect us to deeper levels of awareness.

$15 per person

Reiki Level 1 Training
Sep
8
6:30pm 6:30pm

Reiki Level 1 Training

Have you wanted to learn Reiki? Us too, and we're so excited to have Sarah Buehner initiate us into this ancient healing practice!

Traditional Usui Reiki 1 Classes Start in September and will be held on Friday nights from 6:30-8pm, September 8th-October 27th. 

Join us for this 8-week course where we will learn the following:
-The background and history of Reiki
-Basic Energy Healing concepts (what is energy? energy healing? auras? chakras? meridians?) 
-How Reiki Works (including specific scientific studies) 
-How to use Reiki to heal oneself
-How to use Reiki to heal others (including animals)
-Other fun and helpful uses for Reiki I healing

What is Reiki?
Reiki is a powerful healing technique, that can help to bring about profound physical, emotional, and spiritual changes in a person’s life. Reiki I practitioners learn the basics of Reiki Healing, as well as how to perform self-healing and heal friends/family members and animals. You will learn basics of clearing energy in rooms, food, crystals and other objects. Each Reiki Attunement increases the person’s energy vibration, allowing for more profound healing abilities. 

Who can learn Reiki?
-Anyone who wants to practice radical self-care
-Anyone who experiences a lot of stress, anxiety, chronic pain, physical ailments/illness, spiritual blocks, or is around intense/negative energy

What makes this course different than other Reiki Trainings?
*We allow more time to learn the information, practice, and integrate the knowledge and adjust to the new vibration of energy. Many Reiki First Degree courses are taught all at once in one weekend, individually, or in 3 1-hour sessions, leaving minimal time to process the new information, ask questions, or receive guidance and additional feedback. This course is spread out over 8 weeks, and equals a total of 12 hours of training, so that at the end of the training all Reiki I practitioners feel confident in their ability to use Reiki energy to heal themselves and others.

*A strong emphasis is placed on hands-on practice. Students receive hours of experience in class and homework is given to practice between sessions. 

*You will receive support in integrating this new vibration of energy. Receiving an attunement can bring up mild physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual shifts, that can at times feel uncomfortable or overwhelming. This is happening because your vibration is increasing, and you are releasing old habits and patterns that no longer resonate with your new vibration. The attunement is given during the 3rd or 4th class, so that students have support built into the class as they adjust to the new energy.

*Additional support from an experienced healer/private practice provider. Sarah integrates additional skills and knowledge from her years as a psychotherapist, running a private practice, and from her experience as a practicing psychic/medium and Reiki Practitioner/Master. 

*Additional Resources for Spiritual Development & Reiki Healing. Sarah emphasizes spiritual growth and Reiki healing as a life-long pursuit, and provides many additional handouts, websites, organizations, and other resources for Reiki 1 students to access along the way. Sarah also provides individual feedback and guidance throughout the training program. 

Upon completing this training, you will have been trained in Traditional Usui Reiki First Degree (Reiki I), and receive your Reiki I attunement and certificate as a Traditional Usui First Degree Practitioner. Attendance to each session is required to receive Reiki I certificate. 

After completion of this course, you will have a strong foundation in Reiki healing. If you would like to pursue a career in Reiki, or you would like to further your self-healing and personal growth with Reiki, you can continue onto Reiki II, to be held later this Fall/Winter! 

This event will be hosted by Sarah Buehner, who, in addition to being a Traditional Usui Reiki Master/Teacher is also a practicing psychotherapist and psychic/medium. Sarah pursued her career in Reiki after seeing the profound effects Reiki Healings had in her own life, as well as in the lives of her counseling clients. After learning Reiki, Sarah also experienced how receiving and learning Reiki can lead to profound spiritual growth and strengthen a person’s natural intuition and psychic abilities. Sarah believes that Reiki has a significant role in healing our society in the years to come, and that Reiki will play a significant role in empowering individuals for self-healing, healing others, and contributing to global healing and peace. 

The fee for this course is $295 per person (a little more than $30 per week).

Meditation 101
$25
(Open to All Levels)
We will get to know the basics of meditation during this session. We'll talk about the benefits of meditation, posture, breath and explore different meditation techniques. Prepare to end your week on a high note!

Part of the reason we carry so much stress and tension is because our minds run constantly thinking about things that have happened, will happen or could happen. What we don't realize is that when our mind is somewhere else, we are completely missing the moment. Not only are we missing the present moment when we are wrapped up in our thoughts, but we are also creating tension, stress, anxiety, lack of focus and so many other experiences on our bodies because we spend so much time playing out scenarios rather than being in the here and now.

In this 90 minute experience, Jodi will guide you through exploring meditations you can learn how to put into your everyday life to help you:

● release, let go ● set intentions and goals ● explore the seven energy centers of the body called, chakras ● relieve stress ● focus and increase concentration ● relax before bed time ● calm down when the emotions are running too high at the office or at home ● improve personal intuition and learn how to listen to your own guidance and wisdom

This experience will leave you feeling grounded, re-centered, focused and more connected than when you arrived. 

Most importantly, you will gain a deeper understanding of not only what meditation is, but how to incorporate small pieces of a meditation practice into your day-to-day lifestyle.

Stand Your Ground- A Workshop for Men

Stand Your Ground- A Workshop for Men

An empowering workshop for men.

Do you want space to ground in who you are? 

Channel more confidence?

Reconnect and relax? 

Come stand your ground.

“Stand Your Ground” is a unique opportunity for men to connect to their masculine power and feel more confident, strong, and powerful. This workshop is designed for anyone who identifies as male - who wants to stand his ground and feel awesome doing it. All ages, sizes, and experience levels are wholly welcomed. 

Ground yourself in the first three chakras by opening up and connecting to these powerful and critical energy centers of the body. By doing so, you will leave feeling more grounded in yourself, your body, and confidence.

You’ll experience:

Energizing and rejuvenating meditations you can use on your own

Space to hold open and safe connections with other strong and accepting men

Self-care practices to awaken and ground in your masculine power!

Becca works with queens and kings to help them experience magical transformation and harness their personal power. Through meditation, movement, and chakra-work she helps people reconnect to their confidence, power, and authentic selves to achieve whole love. 

"It was through my own self-love and empowerment journey that I experienced a transformation that completely changed my life. Life is too short to spend it being ashamed of any piece of you, we are all too wonderful for all of that. My game-changing experiences with mindfulness caused me to make a dramatic shift in my life, so I left the classroom and followed my inner guides. I knew I had to share what I learned outward to others because you deserve to experience how spectacular you are under any circumstance."

It was at a young age that I learned the power and magic of mindfulness. I spent the summers of my formative years immersed in numerous pranayama and meditation courses through The Art of Living, where mindfulness techniques became embedded in my programming. It was here I found the love and power of my breath. I have been turning to the breath ever since.

So the question is…

Are you ready to remove the chains on your highest self?

"The more unconditional this love is, the more power you are able to harness. Do you dare to love yourself wholly and unleash your infinite power?"
