Yoga Nidra

A state between waking and sleeping, yoga nidra is a practice passed down by ancient yogis as a means to dive into the subconscious and deepen inner awareness. Regular practice can boost creativity, shift responses to stress, regulate circadian rhythms, and offer blissful meditative oneness with the body, mind, and broader states of consciousness.

After a few minutes of gentle poses to relieve general stiffness and discomfort, students will relax lying down for approximately 30 minutes of yoga nidra. Guided instruction will include breath attention, body scanning, and guided visualization/meditation. This practice assists in releasing mental, emotional, and physical tensions, leaving you feeling tranquil, balanced, and refreshed.

Winter Solstice Candlelight Yoga

Winter Solstice Candlelight Yoga

Slow Down, Reconnect and Renew. Celebrate Winter with a fresh perspective on the season while enjoying a slow, deep restorative yoga practice.

Winter Solstice marks the shortest day of the year. It symbolizes a turning toward the light as the daylight hours begin to increase. It is a celebration of the presence of Spirit and the power of faith and hope that our visions of the future will come into being.

If those 2 words (celebrate and winter) seem incompatible, this practice is especially for you! If you're already a fan of the season, you'll leave with even more reasons to celebrate. And what better time to slow down and reconnect than right in the midst of the holiday season? Sometimes, taking time out for you, is the most productive thing you can do.

Full Moon Gentle Yoga and Reiki

Full Moon Gentle Yoga and Reiki

Full.Moon. 2.png

While moving through a gentle and restorative yoga practice, we will connect to the cycles and rhythms of our natural world and learn about the energy of this full moon. Syncing up with our universe and using astrology to thrive in everyday life is one powerful way to use mother nature to help us feel balanced and whole again. When we understand the subtle, yet powerful influences of our natural world we can harness and capture that energy to manifest what we want to bring into our lives or release and free ourselves of whatever it is that is holding us back.

A full moon may have the energy of our world feeling heightened, which may leave you feeling motivated, agitated or depleted. Each us us will have to recognize and work with the way it affects us individually and ask the questions, do the digging to help reveal the layers of who you really are. Tapping into the energy of our world, the phases of the moon and positioning of the planets are all tools each of us has to make sense of what can feel at times to be nonsensical. There is a reason, a way, a lesson here for you to uncover.

Join us each month in new moon and full moon yoga classes. Come learn about the natural rhythms and cycles of your universe, the moon's cycles, where she is energetically and how the circumstances of your life are in rhythm, all while moving through a gentle and restorative yoga practice.

Join Joy every month for a Reiki Share!

Reiki share, also known as a Reiki circle or exchange, is a gathering of like-minded people who participate in group healing treatments with each other. At Reiki Circles we gather each month to give and receive Reiki, to practice, support, and learn.

In these sessions, we will learn various Reiki techniques, different ways to use our Reiki to help ease our own stress, and the suffering of others and mother nature.

We will re-center ourselves on the principles of Reiki, learn new Reiki healing concepts, practice and receive Reiki with other practitioners, discuss ideas and challenges and share Reiki stories.

As always, all are invited regardless of experience with Reiki. The circles are open to the public and you are welcome to invite others and to share this information with anyone interested.

Reiki Training Level I: Healing Yourself

Reiki Training Level I: Healing Yourself

36303059_1479680488842360_762338097831608320_o.jpg

A new session of Traditional Usui Reiki training Level 1 is beginning at Joy Of Yoga!


Reiki is a powerful healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered through the hands and is based on the knowledge that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and keeps us alive and well. When we're not feeling well, it can be caused by blockages in our flow of energy energy that become clogged or stagnant causing us to feel sick, imbalanced, overly emotional or stressed. Reiki works to clear and balance the energies of the body, bringing about profound physical, emotional, and spiritual changes in a person’s life.

During this 4-week course we will learn:

  • 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

Reiki I is about self-healing and practitioners learn the basics of Reiki Healing.
Through the Reiki attunement process (passed on from teacher to student) we activate healing on every level.

The Reiki attunement will give participants the following:
+ Promote Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Healing
+ Soothe the Central Nervous System and Reduces Stress
+ More Energy
+ Better Sleep
+ Gives us opportunities for growth and Spiritual Development
+ Clears the Mind and Improves Focus
+ Assists the body in cleansing itself from toxins and
+ Supports the immune system
+ Promotes an Overall Sense of Harmony and Balance

Reiki I can be used on children, loved ones, animals, the food you eat, your crystals, a room, anything. We can even send Reiki to people and communities in different parts of the world.

During this 4-week course we will learn:
- 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

And, of course, you will receive your Reiki Attunement!

If orienting yourself towards more balance and peace in your life is something you want, this training is for you!

Who can learn Reiki?
* Anyone who wants to practice self-care
* Those who want to begin or further their spiritual development
* Anyone who experiences a lot of stress, anxiety, chronic pain, physical ailments/illness, spiritual blocks, or is around intense/negative energy
* Those who want to help heal animals

What makes this course different than other Reiki Trainings?
* We allow more time to learn the information, practice, 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 4 weeks, and equals a total of 8 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 Reiki 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 shifting, and you are releasing old habits and patterns that no longer resonate with your new vibration. The attunement is given during the 2nd class, so that students have support built into the class as they adjust to the new energy.

We emphasize spiritual growth and Reiki healing as a life-long pursuit, and provide many additional handouts, websites, organizations, and other resources for Reiki 1 students to access along the way. We also provide 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.

After completion of this course, you will have a strong foundation in Reiki healing. If you would like to further your self-healing and personal growth with Reiki, you can continue onto Reiki II, to be held in September/October and throughout the year!

21 Day Sugar Detox

29684196_1389472714529805_7978724239621907081_n.jpg

This detox will be designed for vegans, vegetarians, and meat eaters!

Would you like to reset your eating habits? We know that losing weight and being healthier isn’t about simply about eliminating sugar, it’s about how you skillfully replace it. This is your chance to give your body a vacation from sugar, carbs and processed foods.

If you find yourself constantly pin-balling between hunger, eating and then hunger again, refined carbs and sugar may be part of the reason. Pastas, bread, chips and Oreos are all packed with calories and sugar and offer little fiber or real nutritional benefit. Studies have proven that when you consume sugar and refined carbs your body can’t use it is turned into fat. Not to mention, sugar is SUPER addictive. Worst of all, it's known to show up in foods you don’t expect and with names that only a scientist would recognize.

The good news is the longer sugar is out of your system the less you will crave it.

The first class will begin on January 5th from 9:30-10:30am. Two supplemental and optional classes will be held on the subsequent Saturdays and will cover topics like digestion, how to boost your immune system, and how to start adding healthy sugars back into your daily life. Most importantly, each week you will be supported by your fellow students and come home with new recipes and new ideas. The final class will celebrate your success and discuss how to incorporate all that’s been learned so that you are well prepared to stay healthy for the rest of the year.

Every student that registers will also be given a 30 minute one-on-one Nutritional Coaching session with April at an agreed upon date.

Facilitator: April Strelinger

Cost: $145 for 3 weeks and 30 minute private session.

Syncing up with our universe and using astrology to thrive in everyday life is one powerful way to use mother nature to help us feel balanced and whole again. When we understand the subtle, yet powerful influences of our natural world we can harness and capture that energy to manifest what we want to bring into our lives or release and free ourselves of whatever it is that is holding us back.

A new moon may have the energy of our world feeling more subdued and internal, which may leave you feeling aligned and clear, or depleted. Above all else, the new moon is a potent time to connect with our seeds of intention. What are we aligning with in life? And how can we use the new moon energy to help us see even more clearly how better to do this.

Each us us will have to recognize and work with the way it affects us individually and ask the questions, do the digging to help reveal the layers of who you really are and what our individual purpose is. Tapping into the energy of our world, the phases of the moon and positioning of the planets are all tools each of us has to make sense of what can feel at times to be nonsensical. There is a reason, a way, a lesson here for you to uncover.

Introduction to Mindfulness Series

IMG_4191.jpg

This 4-week course is a perfect way to start your mindfulness practice. As someone in a past session shared, "It's the single most powerful tool I've ever used to implement change in my life."

Mindfulness is a self-empowering, simple and practical way to help you be your best self more often. Over the last decade, mindfulness has gone from being perceived as a "woo woo" practice to an increasingly mainstream tool espoused in corporations across the globe. Finally now modern neuroscience can support what mindfulness practitioners have known for thousands of years - that mindfulness meditation physically develops our brain's capacity to be more compassionate, calm, happy and focused.

In this series you will learn practices to:

Develop your self-awareness and Emotional Intelligence

Wake up from the trance of thought to the life that is here

Develop acceptance of yourself just as you are

Work with difficult emotions and stress

Create space to shift from habitual negative reactions to responses that align with your values

Develop empathy and compassion

Communicate mindfully

Cultivate inner strength, calm and joy in your life

Each class will include a combination of a lecture, practices and group discussion. To fully benefit from the course, you will also want to commit to engaging in at least 15 minutes of daily home practice on non-class days. You will be provided suggested resources for your benefit.

Yoga for Bigger Bodies

yoga for bigger bodies.jpg

This 6 week series will be an introduction to yoga for bigger bodies. Regardless of your size, shape or flexibility, yoga will meet you exactly where you are on your journey to balance and well-being. Yoga helps to create a compassionate mind and heart so that you can accept and embrace the beautiful and capable body you live in. Learn to move freely with confidence by letting go of the question “How should my body look in this pose?”, and start connecting to your inner awareness so you can ask yourself “How does my body feel in this pose?".

In this series, Bryna will teach you how to modify basic yoga postures to support your unique body by using the available props provided in any yoga studio. Bryna will teach multiple variations for each posture, showing you how to make yoga safe and comfortable for your specific body type. You will learn how to connect to your body without judgement in a supportive and compassionate community of like bodied people.

We will integrate our movements with breathing exercises to empower you to move with confidence and purpose. Learn to cultivate patience for yourself while strengthening and stretching at your pace. We will take the time to personally assist each student for maximum comfort and encourage each practitioner to find their own expression in each yoga pose. This is an interactive workshop where we will have conversations about body positivity and self love. You will leave this class with a deeper appreciation of your body and all it can do, basic knowledge of yoga terms, postures, breath work, body awareness, meditation and the ability to make yoga work for you in any yoga class.

Energetic Self Care: The Art of Following Intuition

How do you know which of the voices in your head is your Intuition? Do you think you are receiving guidance? You are! Answer the Call. Spirit is trying to get your attention.

What you are seeking is seeking you.
-Rumi

An important part of self-care is learning to hear and follow your intuition. All the answers are available within you. Once you answer the Call of your Inner Guidance, miraculous support begins to flow into your awareness. As we learn to trust and follow our Intuition, we tap into the flow of abundance, peace and purpose.

In this four-week class, using guided meditation, visualization and Oracle cards, you will learn to connect with the Intuitive Voice of your heart. We will practice following the Guidance you receive. We will explore the signs that Mother Earth provides as affirmations that you are connected. You are so much more than you can possibly imagine.

Melanie Klug is a certified Theta Healing Practitioner. She utilizes meditation, pranayama, yoga, oracle card readings and intuitive healing in her classes and private sessions.

Thriving Through Winter with Ayurveda

Ayurveda is the sister science or lifestyle science of yoga. Developed more than 3,000 years ago, it is one of the worlds oldest healing systems practiced today. It sees health and wellness as a delicate balance between the elements. These elements are Kapha (water/earth), pita (fire), and vata (air/ether).

Vata is the driving force for all the elements. Associated with late fall to early winter, vata is both the life force and the energy of thought that moves in the space of the mind. Vata governs sensory, emotional, and mental harmony balance. When out of balance it can cause nervousness, anxiety, dry or chapped skin, light or uneasy sleeping, constipation, bloating, dislike of cold and wind, sensitivity to loud noises, spacey and scattered thoughts or feelings, excessive thinking or worrying.

In order to "Thrive Through Winter" we must look to our routines and create warmth and nourishment in our bodies. During this four-week series we will explore the elements and wisdom of Ayurveda to stay vital this season. We will study the dosha's (your constitution) for ideal seasonal routines, diet, yoga asana, behavior and use of our senses to calm and ground. This is a series to remind us that health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit.

Yoga with the Beatles

“Turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream” in this 90-minute flow class with Brianna Owens set to an all Beatles playlist. Music is a powerful tool to aid us in our experience on our mats, a tool that can both enhance and deepen the physical, mental, and spiritual work we engage in when we practice yoga.

The Beatles often explored themes of being, consciousness, awareness, and spirituality in their work, and they were instrumental figures in bringing Eastern yogic ideals to the West.

We will begin class with a short conversation about the group’s relationship with the Maharishi, their implementation and interest in transcendental meditation, Indian ideology, and Eastern melodic structures. We will then hit our mats for a light-hearted, all-levels flow class in which you are encouraged to sing, dance, and experience your practice in whatever way the music compels you!

Full Moon Gentle Yoga and Reiki

While moving through a gentle and restorative yoga practice, we will connect to the cycles and rhythms of our natural world and learn about the energy of this full moon. Syncing up with our universe and using astrology to thrive in everyday life is one powerful way to use mother nature to help us feel balanced and whole again. When we understand the subtle, yet powerful influences of our natural world we can harness and capture that energy to manifest what we want to bring into our lives or release and free ourselves of whatever it is that is holding us back.

A full moon may have the energy of our world feeling heightened, which may leave you feeling motivated, agitated or depleted. Each us us will have to recognize and work with the way it affects us individually and ask the questions, do the digging to help reveal the layers of who you really are. Tapping into the energy of our world, the phases of the moon and positioning of the planets are all tools each of us has to make sense of what can feel at times to be nonsensical. There is a reason, a way, a lesson here for you to uncover.

Join us each month in new moon and full moon yoga classes. Come learn about the natural rhythms and cycles of your universe, the moon's cycles, where she is energetically and how the circumstances of your life are in rhythm, all while moving through a gentle and restorative yoga practice.

What makes this Yoga Teacher Training distinctive is its ability to draw from a wide spectrum of yoga practices, philosophies and techniques. This training promises to deliver intellectually stimulating content, physically empowering practices, and spiritual connection through the cultivation of a daily sadhana practice. Physical strength and flexibility are not requirements to be a yoga teacher. The desire to better yourself and those around you are the requirements for this training.

This training is design to connect you to your inner teacher and guide. This is not a set of prescribed sequences that must be delivered with prescribed speech. It is a map to lead you to that inner wisdom and voice of the teacher within. Intuition, creativity, connection and thoughtful application are the cornerstones of the knowledge and teaching methods you will gain. Teachers will be asked to be accountable and to know why they are designing their classes with a specific sequence of poses, knowing that there is never just one way or one response, but that there is always an authentic and intuitive approach.

As a yoga teacher, we continuously put ourselves again and again in the seat of a student enabling us to hold more compassion and understanding for our students and continuously educating ourselves on the new ideas, fresh perspectives of the Yogic Teachings. Teaching yoga is a great responsibility, one that must be held in the highest regard. To be a yoga teacher is to be a 'Mitra', a friend to all of humanity. We are all a part of the great tree of life.

Regardless of where you find yourself in your yoga practice, this training will transform each of us on every level. Welcome to your brand new beginning!

A few reviews on Yoga Alliance from our recent graduates:

"Joy and Jill have poured their hearts and shared wealth of knowledge into this RYT200 training and as a result the program they have created is truly excellent. There are so many compliments I could leave here, but perhaps most relevant is that I believe they have left all of us who completed the program feeling fully prepared to teach and teach well. Beyond the practical, these incredible women have designed a journey full of love, community, kindness, and self-realization through the close study and practice of the ancient tradition of yoga." -Andrea

"Joy and Jill have an incredibly deep well of knowledge and experience that they were so willing to share with my training class, and they brought amazing outside resources to us to round out our learning. For 10 weekends, through their words, their energy, their love of yoga and teaching, Joy and Jill provided a truly supportive space where I learned so much more than just philosophy, alignment, anatomy, meditation, and breath work: they helped me find my voice and the confidence to take it out into the world. The training Joy and Jill have put together will give you so much more than you could hope to expect." -Lindsay

I cannot say enough amazing things about this 200 HR-RYT program!! Joy and Jill are some of the most loving, big-hearted, gifted, smart & capable women that I know. This program will deepen your practice physically, mentally and emotionally. They provide vast knowledge to the trainees on the history and philosophy of yoga; trainees leave this program with a rich, well-rounded foundation to begin their yoga teacher journey. Joy and Jill provide such a safe, nurturing environment that encourages everyone to reach their full potential. You will feel cherished and loved throughout this intense journey. You will finish the 10 months of this journey a much stronger individual. Your heart will be opened, your mind expanded, and your body so well prepared to engage your students in a rich yoga practice. Joy and Jill do a wonderful job of teaching alignment, but more importantly, they share great insight on how to develop a keen eye as you watch your students to see what cues need to be given. They teach you that every body is different, and while alignment is important, it will look and feel differently for each individual. They teach you to see the beauty first and then to provide the guidance that will enable your student to blossom to her/his best self. I am so grateful to Joy and Jill; they have helped shape my entire teacher prospective. I feel so confident in the foundation they so generously offered. I would recommend this program to every aspiring yogi. It will change your life. -Colleen

New Moon Gentle Yoga and Reiki

newmoon2.png

While moving through a gentle and restorative yoga practice, we will connect to the cycles and rhythms of our natural world and learn about the energy of this full moon. Syncing up with our universe and using astrology to thrive in everyday life is one powerful way to use mother nature to help us feel balanced and whole again. When we understand the subtle, yet powerful influences of our natural world we can harness and capture that energy to manifest what we want to bring into our lives or release and free ourselves of whatever it is that is holding us back.

A new moon may have the energy of our world feeling more subdued and internal, which may leave you feeling aligned and clear, or depleted. Above all else, the new moon is a potent time to connect with our seeds of intention. What are we aligning with in life? And how can we use the new moon energy to help us see even more clearly how better to do this.

Each us us will have to recognize and work with the way it affects us individually and ask the questions, do the digging to help reveal the layers of who you really are and what our individual purpose is. Tapping into the energy of our world, the phases of the moon and positioning of the planets are all tools each of us has to make sense of what can feel at times to be nonsensical. There is a reason, a way, a lesson here for you to uncover.

Join us each month in new moon and full moon gentle yoga and reiki classes. Come learn about the natural rhythms and cycles of your universe, the moon's cycles, where she is energetically and how the circumstances of your life are in rhythm, all while moving through a gentle and restorative yoga practice.

Reiki Training Level I

soul_crush_banner.png

A new session of Traditional Usui Reiki training Level 1 starts soon!

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a powerful healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered through the hands and is based on the knowledge that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and keeps us alive and well.

When we're not feeling well, it can be caused by blockages in our flow of energy that becomes clogged or stagnant causing us to feel sick, imbalanced, overly emotional or stressed. Reiki works to clear and balance the energies of the body, bringing about profound physical, emotional, and spiritual changes in a person’s life.

Reiki is a powerful healing technique. Reiki I practitioners learn the basics of Reiki Healing, as well as how to perform self-healing and hand positions heal friends, family members, animals, spaces and objects.

Through the Reiki attunement process we activate healing on every level of our being.

During this course we will learn:

-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

Who can learn Reiki?

-Anyone who wants to practice self-care

-Those who want to begin or further their spiritual development

-Anyone who experiences a lot of stress, anxiety, chronic pain, physical ailments/illness, spiritual blocks, or is around intense/negative energy

-Those who want to help heal animals

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 three 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 multiple weeks, and equals a total of 8 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 1st class (of two week sessions), and the 2nd class (of four week sessions), so that students have support built into the class as they adjust to the new energy.

-Additional Resources for Spiritual Development & Reiki Healing. We emphasize spiritual growth and Reiki healing as a life-long pursuit, and provide many additional handouts, websites, organizations, and other resources for Reiki 1 students to access along the way. We also provide 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.

Level I Reiki is all about self healing. Through the Reiki attunement process we activate healing on every level.

If orienting yourself towards more balance and peace in your life is something you want, this training is for you!

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

The fee for this course is $295.

Yoga for Bigger Bodies

yoga for bigger bodies.jpg

This 6 week series will be an introduction to yoga for bigger bodies. Regardless of your size, shape or flexibility, yoga will meet you exactly where you are on your journey to balance and well-being. Yoga helps to create a compassionate mind and heart so that you can accept and embrace the beautiful and capable body you live in. Learn to move freely with confidence by letting go of the question “How should my body look in this pose?”, and start connecting to your inner awareness so you can ask yourself “How does my body feel in this pose?".

In this series, Bryna will teach you how to modify basic yoga postures to support your unique body by using the available props provided in any yoga studio. Bryna will teach multiple variations for each posture, showing you how to make yoga safe and comfortable for your specific body type. You will learn how to connect to your body without judgement in a supportive and compassionate community of like bodied people.

We will integrate our movements with breathing exercises to empower you to move with confidence and purpose. Learn to cultivate patience for yourself while strengthening and stretching at your pace. We will take the time to personally assist each student for maximum comfort and encourage each practitioner to find their own expression in each yoga pose. This is an interactive workshop where we will have conversations about body positivity and self love. You will leave this class with a deeper appreciation of your body and all it can do, basic knowledge of yoga terms, postures, breath work, body awareness, meditation and the ability to make yoga work for you in any yoga class. Join us!

Full Moon Gentle Yoga and Reiki

fullmoon2.png

While moving through a gentle and restorative yoga practice, we will connect to the cycles and rhythms of our natural world and learn about the energy of this full moon. Syncing up with our universe and using astrology to thrive in everyday life is one powerful way to use mother nature to help us feel balanced and whole again. When we understand the subtle, yet powerful influences of our natural world we can harness and capture that energy to manifest what we want to bring into our lives or release and free ourselves of whatever it is that is holding us back.

A full moon may have the energy of our world feeling heightened, which may leave you feeling motivated, agitated or depleted. Each us us will have to recognize and work with the way it affects us individually and ask the questions, do the digging to help reveal the layers of who you really are. Tapping into the energy of our world, the phases of the moon and positioning of the planets are all tools each of us has to make sense of what can feel at times to be nonsensical. There is a reason, a way, a lesson here for you to uncover.

Join us each month in new moon and full moon yoga classes. Come learn about the natural rhythms and cycles of your universe, the moon's cycles, where she is energetically and how the circumstances of your life are in rhythm, all while moving through a gentle and restorative yoga practice.

Sound Bath- Halloween Night! Healing Sound, Restorative Yoga, Tibetan Bowls and Planetary Gongs

Join Pati Pellerito and Joy Page for two hours of healing through Sound, Yoga, Meditation, Breathwork and connection to a renewed sense of peace and calm.

As we place our body postures of receptivity, we allow. The layers of tension melt, our busy minds settle and the complexities of life fade into the background. During this session, our bodies will absorb the healing vibrations of sound of the Tibetan Bowls and Planetary Gongs and the energies of breathwork and yogic posture. Through these alchemical processes we shift, our connective tissue and brain waves literally recalibrate toward balance, creativity and ease.

The multitudinous sounds and waves of soothing energy from Tibetan Singing Bowls, Planetary Gongs, and many other percussive and acoustic instruments offer nutrition for the neurological system as well as medicine for the soul. Many describe this experience as transportive, as the sounds encourage a shift in brain wave state to alpha-theta, one that supports a restful and rejuvenating experience.

Join us and leave this experience feeling grounded, clear and fresh.

Introduction to Trauma for Yogis
Dec
2
1:00 PM13:00

Introduction to Trauma for Yogis

Learning about trauma and the biological, physiological, psycho-emotional, and social impact it plays is every bit as important as learning about anatomy for a yoga teacher. Like anatomy, understanding trauma gives the yoga teacher a better understanding of what is going on underneath the skin.

This three-hour introduction to trauma is specifically geared toward yoga teachers and teachers in training. Attendees will learn the definition of trauma, the impact trauma has on the body and mind, and practical application of this knowledge to create a trauma-aware environment on the mat.

When: Sunday, 12/2/2018 - 1:00pm-4:30pm

Where: Joy of Yoga

Who: This particular workshop is especially geared toward yoga teachers and teachers-in-training, but open to dedicated students interested in learning more.

What to Expect:

75 minute of lecture
Small group work and discussion
30-45 minute asana practice with applied trauma-informed principles
Q&A and closing

Facilitator: This workshop will be led by members of the Yoga Buzz Trauma-Informed Yoga Committee. Read more about our initiatives here.

Cost: Donation-based (cash, check, and credit card accepted on-site). No one turned away due to lack of funds.

Register: Space is limited to 40. Please register directly through Yoga Buzz here

Yoga Nidra
Dec

7:00 PM19:00

Yoga Nidra

A state between waking and sleeping, yoga nidra is a practice passed down by ancient yogis as a means to dive into the subconscious and deepen inner awareness. Regular practice can boost creativity, shift responses to stress, regulate circadian rhythms, and offer blissful meditative oneness with the body, mind, and broader states of consciousness.

After a few minutes of gentle poses to relieve general stiffness and discomfort, students will relax lying down for approximately 30 minutes of yoga nidra. Guided instruction will include breath attention, body scanning, and guided visualization/meditation. This practice assists in releasing mental, emotional, and physical tensions, leaving you feeling tranquil, balanced, and refreshed.

Jivamukti Yoga: Open to All Levels
Nov
28
to Dec 12

Jivamukti Yoga: Open to All Levels

Jivamukti Yoga is a path to enlightenment through compassion for all beings. Whether you’re a beginner, deciphering the difference between vrksasana (tree) and sirshasana (headstand) or an advanced yogi who can put both feet behind their head, the Jivamukti Open class welcomes you, as it is open to practitioners of all levels.

You work at your own pace, following the teacher’s verbal as well as hands-on guidance. Options will be provided for beginners, intermediate and advanced students.

A typical Open class incorporates the five tenets of Jivamukti Yoga:
shastra (scripture)
bhakti (devotion)
ahimsa (kindness)
nada (music)
dhyana (meditation)

An Open class presents classical yoga teachings as relevant to one’s life on and off the mat, drawn from the Focus of the Month essay, supported by chanting, breath awareness, flowing vinyasa sequences, alignment exploration, hands-on assistance, relaxation and meditation. 

Exuberant, eclectic music plays an integral role: you might practice to a shifting soundtrack of ragas, global trance, hip-hop, spoken word, George Harrison, Sting, Krishna Das, Donna de Lory, Michael Franti, Bill Laswell, Alice Coltrane and Mozart.

The class is called “Open” because it is open and suitable to all levels of practitioner. Even so, beginning level students should know that there will not be much detailed “how to do” descriptions; for that a student is advised to attend a Basic or Open Level Flow Class.

Full Moon Gentle Yoga and Reiki

MYSTICMAMMA-ART_GEMINIMOON.jpg

While moving through a gentle and restorative yoga practice, we will connect to the cycles and rhythms of our natural world and learn about the energy of this full moon. Syncing up with our universe and using astrology to thrive in everyday life is one powerful way to use mother nature to help us feel balanced and whole again. When we understand the subtle, yet powerful influences of our natural world we can harness and capture that energy to manifest what we want to bring into our lives or release and free ourselves of whatever it is that is holding us back.

A full moon may have the energy of our world feeling heightened, which may leave you feeling motivated, agitated or depleted. Each us us will have to recognize and work with the way it affects us individually and ask the questions, do the digging to help reveal the layers of who you really are. Tapping into the energy of our world, the phases of the moon and positioning of the planets are all tools each of us has to make sense of what can feel at times to be nonsensical. There is a reason, a way, a lesson here for you to uncover.

Join us each month in new moon and full moon yoga classes. Come learn about the natural rhythms and cycles of your universe, the moon's cycles, where she is energetically and how the circumstances of your life are in rhythm, all while moving through a gentle and restorative yoga practice.

Yoga Anatomy for Yoga Teachers and Trainees

Yoga-Anatomy-Workshop-800x379.jpg

Yoga is inherently therapeutic. If, and only if, we understand the anatomy of the yoga poses. When we properly line up the bones we coordinate strength with deep core facilitation. We enhance the function of all systems; including nervous, digestive, immune, and endocrine. We maximize breathing mechanics and cardio respiratory potentials. We refine the attention, retention, and insight capabilities of the mind.

Most importantly, it provides the foundation for a sustainable, life long practice. As a yoga teacher our understanding of anatomy is paramount to understanding how the practice lives in our student's bodies.

In this workshop we will review the anatomy of core yoga poses from the perspective of the Iyengar Yoga tradition. We will refine your observation skills, explore common misalignments, distill verbal cueing and hands-on adjustments.

Our goal is to efficiently and affectively support your student's expression of their yoga practice.

Learn EFT and Other Emotional Wellness Techniques

Learn EFT and Other Emotional Wellness Techniques

touch.jpg

A Stress-Free Life is Waiting!

Join Julie and Carly for this 3 part series (drop-in for $20 or attend all 3 for $50) where you will learn life-changing tools to manage your emotional overwhelm, tend to your emotional wellness and guide your self-empowerment. By combining EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and The 5 Personality Patterns, learn how to get to the core of your overwhelm; where it all began in the first place.

EFT goes beyond the physical body into the energy body where past emotions get stuck. Only when you release the frozen energy pattern do you feel lighter and freer in your whole self. Talking about our emotions just re-shuffles the stuck energy. EFT goes deeper to the level of the body's energy system and release it. EFT will clear the energy and allow healing to take place.

The 5 Personality Patterns believes that suffering is created by old patterns of feeling and acting that helped us to survive the traumas of childhood, but then got stuck in our bodies. These patterns have shaped us so deeply that we think that's who we are; when in fact they cover up your true self and prevent it from shining out into the world. The 5 personality patterns help you see when old childhood patterns are running your life so you can discover how to free yourself from them. This method allows you to open up to the freedom of being present in the moment.

Julie and Carly take pride in empowering "YOU"! With these approaches you will be heard and listened to while receiving compassion and guidance to help you and teach you how to access your true nature again. 

You matter, this world would not be the same without you. Before we enter the stressful times of the holidays, come join us for a three-part series where you will learn how to be your truest, unwavering self for you and your family.

Sound Healing and Yoga with Tibetan Bowls, Planetary Gongs

Join Pati Pellerito and Joy Page for two hours of healing through Sound, Yoga, Meditation, Breathwork and connection to a renewed sense of peace and calm.

As we place our body postures of receptivity, we allow. The layers of tension melt, our busy minds settle and the complexities of life fade into the background. During this session, our bodies will absorb the healing vibrations of sound of the Tibetan Bowls and Planetary Gongs and the energies of breathwork and yogic posture. Through these alchemical processes we shift, our connective tissue and brain waves literally recalibrate toward balance, creativity and ease.

The multitudinous sounds and waves of soothing energy from Tibetan Singing Bowls, Planetary Gongs, and many other percussive and acoustic instruments offer nutrition for the neurological system as well as medicine for the soul. Many describe this experience as transportive, as the sounds encourage a shift in brain wave state to alpha-theta, one that supports a restful and rejuvenating experience. Join us and leave this experience feeling grounded, clear and fresh.

Connecting Your Energy Field to Joy, Peace, & Well-Being

Connecting Your Energy Field to Joy, Peace, & Well-Being

Anchoring-The-New-Energies-Within-Your-Heart-Center.jpg

Life can often feel complex and overwhelming. It's easy to find ourselves feeling stuck, blocked or even chaotic. Perhaps you have been trying many things to feel more balanced and peaceful. These practices do help and yet you find yourself back to the same feelings and experiences no matter what you try. It's exhausting. The thought of adding in “one more thing” feels impossible. You may be wondering if it is even possible to shift the way you experience your life.

We get it. We’ve been there. And we also know the answer is YES! Join Mary and Peggy to learn how to bring that feeling of joy, peace and wellbeing into your life. The solution lies WITHIN you and working with your own field of energy.

Concepts of the human energy field are being rediscovered and discussed around the globe. The Human Energy Field has been an integral aspect of many Eastern cultures for thousands of years. In our modern times, this concept of human energy can feel abstract and difficult to integrate into our own personal daily life.

This workshop will show you how to do just that. It will be informative and experiential, empowering you with wisdom and practices you can take home and begin to use immediately.

During the workshop we will:

• Explain the of human energy fields in detailed, yet understandable terms

• Discuss what energy is, where energy comes from and how it flows through you

• Teach you simple practices you can incorporate into your every day life right away that will shift and enhance your own energy flow to create the life you desire

• Provide a safe, sacred space for discussion and sharing

• Include ample time for you to experience the practices we teach

After attending this full-day workshop you will:

• Have a deeper understanding of energy, including your own energy field

• Be able to shift your energy for more joy, and wellbeing

• Experience a deeper connection to your Self

• Have a template for daily energy practices

• Make connections with like minded people!

Here is a little snapshot to how the day will unfold:

9:00- 11:30 am: Welcome and Introductions

Introduction to Class Material, Centering and Meditation

11:30-12:30 pm: Lunch

12:30- 3:00 pm: Class Content/ Practice

After suffering from severe panic attacks and stress, Mary discovered the magic of self-care as the key to finding health, happiness and success. She has taken her personal journey, her formal education and her determination to live life passionately and made it her life’s work.

Through her coaching, workshops, writing and seminars Mary stewards busy, driven people back to their hearts showing how to put their health and well-being back on the priority list.

About Peggy:

Peggy coaches individuals how to better understand and be in touch with their own magnificent energy. She offers them tools to allow the energy to flow optimally in them and their life.

Energy is the foundational element of everything. As a human, we are energy that is experienced as physical form. The observable experience of our self is our physical body. The non-observable experience of our Self is our energetic vibrational dynamics.

Understanding the relationship between physical matter and energy is very important in understanding our human experience. Energy vibrates at certain frequencies and manifests matter. Our experience of matter, our physical body and world, is the result of energy vibrating at certain frequencies to manifest this experience of humanness.

To understand our Self as a human, we must become aware of our underlying energetic dynamics that is manifesting our human experience of physical form.

Peggy is dedicated to helping individuals be happier and healthier.

Introduction to Ayurveda: The Science of Life

ayurveda.jpg

Ayurveda is India's 5000 year old traditional system of natural medicine and healing. It has timeless and now proven methods of restoring balance and health in body, mind and spirit. It is the sister science to Yoga and translated as 'The Knowledge Of Life'.

As we transition into Fall, Ayurveda calls this "Vata" Season, we may already notice our bodies changing. In Ayurveda, the qualities (gunas) of Vata are cold, dry, rough, mobile, light and subtle. Some of us my be experiencing a dry roughness in the skin, nails and hair just a few days into the cool weather. We may also be experiencing more difficulty in balancing postures in yoga class, or in everyday activities. Focus and concentration can also feel a little off this time of year. Regardless of our own particular constitution or dosha (which we will learn in class!), we are effected by our natural world. Ayurveda teaches us how to balance these qualities in simple and logical ways, including foods to eat, that just makes so much sense!

We will learn the history of Ayurveda, it's application in our modern lives and our Ayurvedic Prakriti or Dosha (vata, pitta or kapha?). We'll also learn Ayurvedic practices, routines, eating habits and foods for balancing your dosha.

According to Ayurveda, the goal is not just a high functioning physical body, but a mind and spirit to match. As we accumulate stress in our modern lives, we feel tired, our digestion slows, we battle mood, aging and a multitude of physical ailments that can keep us from realizing our spiritual nature. When the body becomes dense, heavy and non-responsive, it tethers us to a dull state of being and thinking. Ayurveda teaches us ways to lighten the load, feel balanced, energized and whole.

Ayurveda is simple wisdom we can use every day to restore optimal physical health and gain mental and spiritual clarity. In this workshop, you will learn some very simple ways to begin incorporating this ancient wisdom into your everyday life today.

Much of the information widely accepted in Ayurveda for thousands of years has only very recently been proven by modern science! The ancient seers and rishis were so attuned to their physical bodies it is truly astounding to contemplate how they could have been so acutely aware of the most subtle aspects of being. Their knowledge and what they have known for 1000's of years will amaze you!

Reiki Training Level I: Self Healing

reiki.jpg

A new session of Traditional Usui Reiki training Level 1 will begin at Joy Of Yoga on October 17 (no class on Oct 31).

Reiki is a powerful healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered through the hands and is based on the knowledge that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and keeps us alive and well. When we're not feeling well, it can be caused by blockages in our flow of energy energy that become clogged or stagnant causing us to feel sick, imbalanced, overly emotional or stressed. Reiki works to clear and balance the energies of the body, bringing about profound physical, emotional, and spiritual changes in a person’s life. Reiki I is about self-healing and practitioners learn the basics of Reiki Healing.

During this 4-week course we will learn:

-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

Through the Reiki attunement process (passed on from teacher to student) the student is given access to this powerful vibration of energy healing.

The Reiki attunement will give participants the following:

+ Promote Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Healing
+ Soothe the Central Nervous System and Reduces Stress
+ More Energy
+ Better Sleep
+ Gives us opportunities for growth and Spiritual Development
+ Clears the Mind and Improves Focus
+ Assists the body in cleansing itself from toxins and
+ Supports the immune system
+ Promotes an Overall Sense of Harmony and Balance

Reiki I can be used on ourselves, children, loved ones, animals, the food you eat, your crystals, a room, a situation, anything. We can even send Reiki to help heal people and communities in different parts of the world.

Who can learn Reiki?

* Anyone who wants to practice self-care
* Those who want to begin or further their spiritual development
* Anyone who experiences a lot of stress, anxiety, chronic pain, physical ailments/illness, spiritual blocks, or is around intense/negative energy
* Those who want to help heal animals

What makes this course different than other Reiki Trainings?

* We allow more time to learn the information, practice, 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 4 weeks, and equals a total of 8 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 Reiki 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 shifting, and you are releasing old habits and patterns that no longer resonate with your new vibration. The attunement is given during the 2nd class, so that students have support built into the class as they adjust to the new energy.

We emphasize spiritual growth and Reiki healing as a life-long pursuit, and provide many additional handouts, websites, organizations, and other resources for Reiki 1 students to access along the way. We also provide 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.

After completion of this course, you will have a strong foundation in Reiki healing. If you would like to further your self-healing and personal growth with Reiki, you can continue onto Reiki II, to be held in September/October and throughout the year!

If orienting yourself towards more balance and peace in your life is something you want, this training is for you!

Yoga Nidra with Sheila Pride

Yoga Nidra with Sheila Pride

A state between waking and sleeping, yoga nidra is a practice passed down by ancient yogis as a means to dive into the subconscious and deepen inner awareness. Regular practice can boost creativity, shift responses to stress, regulate circadian rhythms, and offer blissful meditative oneness with the body, mind, and broader states of consciousness.

After a few minutes of gentle poses to relieve general stiffness and discomfort, students will relax lying down for approximately 30 minutes of yoga nidra. Sheila's guided instruction will include breath attention, body scanning, and guided visualization/meditation. This practice assists in releasing mental, emotional, and physical tensions, leaving you feeling tranquil, balanced, and refreshed.
