Friday, May 24th | 7:30-9 pm | Donation based

 

Our culture desperately needs spaces where it is safe to feel your sorrow and the weight of the weary world. Come sing through the small and large griefs in your life and give them space to breathe and heal.

Every voice is welcome! We teach all the songs call and response- just open your mouth and echo back. We’ll sing songs to ground you, heal you, and help you breathe in the days to come.

Sound Bath w/ Michele

Monday, May 27th | 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.

Intro to Somatics w/ Emily

Sunday, June 2nd | 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.

Breathwork and Astrology w/ Amy and Lacey

Saturday, June 15th | 6-8 pm | $40 or $70/two people

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!)

    Intro to Gua Sha w/ Mary from Bloom

    Saturday, June 29th | 2-3:30 pm | $40 or $70 for two people

    Have you heard about Gua Sha on Instagram or read an article about its benefits?  Do you have a stone, hoping you’d naturally intuit how to use it, only to question “Am I doing this right?”  Then this Intro to Gua Sha workshop is for you!

    Join Mary of Bloom Holistic Skincare for this informative Gua Sha workshop; hosted at Yess Yoga.  During this workshop we will

    • cover the foundations of Gua Sha
    • engage in a thorough step by step and in-person tutorial
    • engage in a hands-on-assistance as you learn how to navigate your own Gua Sha practice

    The ancient practice of Gua Sha hails from Traditional Chinese Medicine, and is steeped in the wisdom of allowing the body to work with itself to heal from within. Learning how to work the Gua Sha stone about your face, neck, shoulders, and décolleté brings benefits such as: lymphatic drainage, facial sculpting, and renewed plumpness to the skin. 

    Often Gua Sha practice deepens as you learn to work with one stone at a time. Therefore, if you have a Gua Sha stone, please bring it along. You will want to learn with your stone. However, Mary will have all varieties of Gua Sha stones to use during this workshop and for purchase as well. 

     

    Please bring the following

    • Gua Sha stone (if you have your own)
    • a stand up or hand held mirror (if you have your own)
    • wear comfortable clothes but no crew neck or sweatshirts as we Gua Sha your neck, décolletage, and shoulders  
    • a water bottle- Gua Sha promotes drainage and you’ll want to stay properly hydrated as you learn to flush your system
    •  Optional to bring your preferred facial oil otherwise we will use Jojoba oil as slip for the Gua Sha stone
