Astrology and Breathwork w/ Amy Kuretsky & Lacey Prpić Hedtke

Saturday, February 11th| 6-8 pm | $40 or $70/two people

 

Join Amy Kuretsky, from Constellation Acupuncture & Healing Arts, and Lacey Prpić Hedtke, from The Future, for group astrology and breathwork at Yess Yoga.

Breathwork is a powerful experiential tool and process that allows deep self-exploration and transformation. Breathwork uses only the power of our own breath with the support of music and a group dynamic to access a non-ordinary state of consciousness. We will seek a better understanding of ourselves through an intentional breathing practice to go within into the deepest parts of ourselves and witness whatever we find there with love and compassion.

There’s significant power in coming together in a sacred container to breathe and open our hearts together as a group. This group dynamic allows you to care for yourself while you care for your community through group healing. Because this process can bring up intense emotions and strong physical experiences, please understand that issues arising from participation in Breathwork may require additional therapeutic or supportive interventions.

This 90-min event will be split into three parts: time to discuss the current astrology and set intentions as the wheel of the year turns, time to lay down and breathe together, and time after the breathing to share, witness, and ask questions.

No previous breathwork experience necessary. Wear comfy and warm clothes, bring a yoga mat, plus an eye covering or extra blanket or whatever makes you feel the most cozy and supported. Masking is optional, however taking a rapid test before arriving is requested – and also, Amy has done breathwork with a surgical mask on and reports it was fairly comfortable.

If you are in the first trimester of pregnancy, have a recent TBI or history with seizures, retinal detachment, or any other significant health issue you’d like Amy to be aware of, please make this information known to her prior to your participation via email. As always, please feel empowered to discuss breathwork with your physician if you are concerned about participating for any reason.

        Everyday Tools For Empaths + Highly Sensitive People w/ Lynn Salmon-Easter

        Sunday, February 12th | 6:30-8 pm | $35 or $60/two people

        “A highly sensitive person (HSP) experiences the world differently than others. Due to a biological difference that they’re born with, highly sensitive people are more aware of subtleties and process information deeply. This means they tend to be creative, insightful, and empathetic, but it also means they’re more prone than others to stress and overwhelm.”
        — excerpt from Highly Sensitive Refuge website

        Do you sometimes feel like being an empath or a highly sensitive person (HSP) is more of a burden than a gift? Are you wondering if you are an empath or a highly sensitive person (HSP)? If you can relate to many of the signs below you are likely one or both:

        • Frequently feel emotionally exhausted
        • You sense and feel other people’s emotions as your own
        • Easily feel overwhelmed and anxious
        • Challenged by violence and cruelty of any kind
        • Feel the need to withdraw often
        • You are a deep thinker and a seeker
        • Your inner world is alive and present
        • You often feel misunderstood
        • You are perceptive and conscientious
        • Conflict and criticism are painful for you

        Let’s turn it around. In reality, being an empath and/or a highly sensitive person is a superpower!! When we are balanced and grounded in our bodies we will exhibit many positive traits like these:

        • Creative
        • Insightful
        • Highly perceptive
        • Strongly intuitive
        • Deep feeler
        • Easily know and recognize other people’s needs and feelings
        • Appreciate beauty and small wonders

        This class is right for you if:

        • You would like to gain knowledge of what it truly means to be highly sensitive and/or an
        empath
        • You are looking to be in community with like-minded individuals to share and support you in
        your experience of being a highly sensitive person and/or an empath
        • You would like to learn tools and ways to set healthy boundaries so you can live in the world
        with more grace and ease

        Additional notes about class:
        • A worksheet and handouts containing class content will be given in class
        • During class we will use reflect + connect questions to help you integrate information presented
        • A follow-up email with the worksheet / handouts, resources and any tools learned in class with clickable links or pdfs will be sent after class

        Join Lynn Salmon-Easter, Reiki Master for a this hands-on and interactive class where you will learn and practice tools to manage, regulate and balance your energy and nervous system. Just like brushing and flossing your teeth, your energetic body and nervous system need daily and/or weekly attention to stay healthy and balanced. Please bring an open heart and mind to class plus a journal or paper to take notes and we will live, love and learn together!

        “Such an informative class. I felt very warm, balanced and calm afterwards. Lynn has great energy, she made me feel comfortable and supported. I would come again!”

        “This class was very helpful. I needed a class like this. I’ve felt alone in my journey and she gave me tools to help feel less alone.”

        Sonic Alchemy w/ Waking Nomad

        Saturday, February 18th | 4-6 pm | $35 or $60/two people

        The session begins with an introduction to the active practice of sound meditation. We’ll explain how to begin working with your attention to cultivate awareness. You will learn to use sound as a tool for going inward. We will guide you through movement and breathwork designed to release tension from the body and reset the nervous system.  Once the physical body has been prepared we will drop into 60 minutes of sound meditation.

         
        While immersed in the rich sounds of the overtone producing instruments you’ll allow the experience to bring you into the present moment. Practice letting the linguistic and discursive mind fall away while making room to engage with the world from a place of authenticity and receptivity. Give yourself permission to enter a liminal state, connecting with the sounds and vibrations of the instruments through a process of judicious listening and attention training. Lean into your joy, vulnerability, compassion and strength.
         
        Thomasina and Bob Fisk are mind body facilitators with backgrounds in personal development, meditation, yoga, breathwork, music and mental wellness. They have been called to the power of sound through first hand experience and training, both with the instruments and philosophies of this ancient and evolving wellness modality.
         
        We look forward to practicing with you!

              Sound Bath w/ Michele 

              Sunday, February 26th | 6:30-8 pm | $30 or $50 for two people 

              The use of vibration and sound is a critical tool for healing the human nervous system. We have all been in a state of uncertainty, anxiety, and dis-ease. These states of being tax the nervous system – both over-driving the sympathetic (flight or flight) nervous system and inhibiting the parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system. The yogis wisely noted that sound is the language of the parasympathetic nervous system and soothes a vata (or constant movement) imbalance. Here is an opportunity to allow your nervous system to repair and rejuvenate in a bath of sound vibrations. Class will begin with some insights about current astrology, stretching or calming yoga, and then 30-40 minutes of a gong bath. *If you are prone to headaches, please bring a head covering (hat, scarf, bandana, etc). *Minimum age for participation is 11-years-old.
