Friday, June 21st | 7:30-9:30 pm | $40 or $70 for two people

 

Only one spot left!

Join us for a way to honor the solstice in the ancestral traditions. Luci will be sharing digital sonic textures and patterns, based on analog instrumentation frequencies associated with healing sound bath practices, paired with guided meditation through exploration of the chakras. Britt will offer gentle restorative movement to integrate the sensory experience. Our intention is to activate parasympathetic rest and explore litha themes from this state.

    Prenatal Yoga w/ Izzy

    Saturday’s July 6-August 10th | 9-10:15 am | $15 or $70 for series

    How is a series different than a drop-in class? When you enroll in this yoga series you will be joining a set group of pregnant or postpartum folks that you’ll be practicing alongside each week. We’ll get to know each other through weekly check ins, share the ups and downs of pregnancy + parenthood, move, and breathe together as a group.

    Prenatal yoga can help with sleep, optimize baby’s position for birth, soothe the common physical discomforts associated with pregnancy, and help you feel more connected to your body as you prepare for childbirth (and beyond!). 

    Each class will include asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), and movement all specifically designed to prepare the body for a better birth and postpartum experience.

    Intro to Somatics w/ Emily

    Saturday, July 13th | 1:30-3:30 pm | $35 or $60 for two people

    Join this workshop to learn about somatics, how to work with and through the body to heal our trauma, conditioning, patterns, pains, and anything getting in our way of living the life we truly desire. We will discuss how through working with and through the body we can find wisdom, connection, and joy in our life.

    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.

          This 90-minute trauma-informed yoga class will begin with a slow flow / yin yoga practice and conclude with an extended savasana needle nap. Together, the two complementary modalities will provide an opportunity for folks to relax and find balance. Tatum Fjerstad, a yoga teacher and licensed acupuncturist, will be leading the yoga and providing the acupuncture. All levels are welcome. 

          Masks are optional during yoga and required during the acupuncture portion.

                Sound Bath w/ Michele

                Sunday, July 28th | 7-8 pm | $20 or $40 for 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.
