Somatic Healing: Preparing for Motherhood

Saturday, March 2nd | 1-3 pm | $35

Join this workshop if you are thinking about becoming a mother soon or if you aspire to be a mother someday! We will dive into how to work with and through the body to heal our trauma, conditioning, patterns, pains, and anything getting in the way of being the woman and mother we truly desire someday. Healing ourselves before becoming a mother will help you to connect deeper to yourself, heal from your past, and be able to show up more fully and in the present moment for your children so they can truly thrive and you too in motherhood! Being more present and in your feminine body will help you to feel confident, less stressed, and navigate motherhood with more ease and joy.

 

We will look at how mental patterns, mindset, shapes we carry ourselves in, language, background, conditioning, and more affect us and our wellbeing. All of these show us how we are finding safety, connection, and belonging in the world. This class will discuss how we are currently doing these and explore ways in which we could find these things more in alignment with what we truly want, value, and care about. You will also be guided into your body to heal and find wisdom there.

Astrology & Breathwork w Amy & Lacey

Saturday, March 16th | 6-8 pm | $40 or $70 for two

 

Join Amy Kuretsky, from Constellation Acupuncture & Healing Arts, and  Lacey Prpić Hedtke, from The Future, for a special  astrology and group breathwork event 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.  with 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.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. As always, please feel empowered to discuss breathwork with your physician if you are concerned about participating for any reason.


This event will be split into three parts: time to discuss the current astrology , time to lay down and breathe together, and time after the breathing to share witness. No previous breathwork experience necessary. Wear comfy clothes, bring a yoga mat, an eye covering (mats and other props are also available onsite to borrow if needed!)

Sound Bath w/ Michele

Sunday, March 24th | 7-8 pm | $20 or $40/two people

 

According to yogic philosophy, liberation comes when the mind can be directed and one’s inner light takes the lead. Paying attention to the activity of our senses is one way to direct the mind, and hearing is one of the 5 primary human senses. When we become fully aware of our hearing sense, with a heart of curiosity, we can decrease the tendency of the mind to act as master.  Further, therapeutic sound has a unique ability to call forth the parasympathetic nervous response, as the ears are a seat for this part of our nervous system.  The parasympathetic nervous response brings forth the feelings and sensations of relaxation, restoration and rejuvenation. In a world that largely activates only our sympathetic nervous responses, therapeutic sound is so incredibly needed right now. Therapeutic sound can entrain the mind’s vibration into one of steadiness and directability.

In these monthly workshops, we will start with restorative breathwork that fses on lengthening the exhale, which is another way that yogic philosophy says will mold the mind into a more redirectable form. Then we will move into relaxation within the vibrations of therapeutic sound. The instruments of gongs, crystal sound bowls, and drums will be used to create these therapeutic sounds.

No previous experience needed. Please wear comfortable clothing. If you are prone to headaches, please bring a head covering (beanie, hat, bandana, etc). Minimum age requirement is 11 years old.

Reiki Level I Training w/ Liz

Sat, April 27th 10-2 pm & Sun, April 28th 10-4 pm | $225

Class size limited to 4

 

Join Liz Flavin to learn the traditional ancient healing art of Reiki. Reiki (pronounced RAY-kee) accesses Universal Life Force Energy to promote energetic balance and support healing of physical, mental and emotional imbalances. 

Distinct from other healing modalities, Reiki is passed from the Master to student through a sacred ritual known as an attunement. Attunements, also known as initiations, open the energetic pathways and allow the student to become a vessel for Reiki energy. Once attuned, a student possesses Reiki energy for life.

Level 1 is the foundation for anyone wishing to learn Reiki for themselves or to become a practitioner. Students will have the opportunity to experience this healing energy for themselves through self-treatments and while practicing healing on another person. Upon course completion, you will be certified to use this spiritually guided energy to enhance the well-being of yourself and others, including animals and pets.

Included in this course:
 -History and basics of Reiki
 -Ethics of practice
 -Principles for living a balanced and peaceful life
 -How to protect and clear your energy
 -Techniques for treating yourself and others
 -4 attunements to help release stagnant energy

 -Creative ways to use Reiki on animals, plants and so much more
 -Reiki First Degree Certification in the Usui Reiki lineage
