Prenatal Yoga Extended

Prenatal Yoga Extended (2 hr Workshop):

Studies have shown that practicing yoga throughout pregnancy has many benefits for you and your baby. Some benefits include: reducing anxiety and depression, alleviating pain and discomforts of pregnancy, improving muscle strength and flexibility for child birth, and speeding up postpartum recovery.

In this workshop, we will dig deeper into the prenatal yoga practice - including benefits of yoga during pregnancy, how to keep you and baby safe, asana modifications, and sequence for you to take home! We will also guide you through a gentle supportive yoga class with focus on breathing exercises, relaxation, balance, circulation, digestion, and muscle tone for a healthy pregnancy. Each class will be unique, so feel free to sign up more than once!

This workshop is designed for women at any stage of pregnancy and no previous yoga experience is necessary. Prenatal Yoga is considered safe for mommy and baby, but is not recommended for high risk pregnancies (such as those at risk of premature labor). We recommend you consult your doctor before starting prenatal yoga.

Introduction to Shamanism

10:00am10:00am

Introduction to Shamanism

A Medicine Woman is only a conduit for healing. The Medicine Woman has to put aside any personal need to be successful, coming from a pure heart and allowing the Creator to do the actual work. The desire of the sick person's willingness to let go of whatever created the illness. The sick person must trust that the Creator can work through the Medicine Woman, letting go of hopelessness, being willing to receive the healing.

 

Shamanism

Shamanism is finding harmony with nature and yourself. The Earth is a living being who substains us. Our journey helps us come closer to our soul and helps us to integrate all aspects of ourselves.

All power comes from within.
You will develop an inner hearing so you can listen to the voices of nature. Release yourself from illusion and false beliefs. Inner potential to activate your imagination bring your dreams into reality. Improve personal relationships and learn about the Power animals as guides.
Shamanism is very sacred to our life's journey.

Things to bring if you have them: Rattle, Drum, Journal and an sense of adventure.

Harmonic Tea time!
Welcome in the Autumn energy of OCTOBER by gifting yourself to a Saturday night treat. We invite you into the world of a mindful Tea ceremony and movement/breath practice to go along with the Soundweaving experience!
October 22nd is a special Sound Healing workshop from 5-8pm that is an extended version of the normal types of sound baths we do at the studio. Think of this as a more Ceremonial Approach to the whole experience. We are keeping attendance on the lower side in order to facilitate a deeper and connective journey for each participant.

We will begin gathering at 5pm on Saturday, OCT 22 until around 8pm. Imagine the power of the Sound journey you will immerse yourself in after having been beautifully led through some simple and relaxing movement and breath exercises by Stephen Winters of Samsara Wellness Center. We will be sampling high vibration teas from around the world in order to further open our bodies to receive the Sound Bath. There will also be Chinese herbal flower teas with no caffeine offered as well.

The addition of the tea is designed to heighten the senses through the sharing of potent yet subtle teas from china that have been used for hundreds of years to facilitate meditative and awakened states of consciousness. Some of these teas are 200 years old!
Take a sonic musical and meditative journey designed to create DEEP REST in your nervous system utilizing the profound frequencies of the Gongs, Crystal bowls, Tibetan bowls, Chimes, Ocean drum, and other vibrational instruments. 100% Organic Essential oils, blended by Docta Nick of Essential Oil Wizardry, will be woven into the moment as well.
In order to keep the experience personal and powerful, we are inviting 12 souls to come on board and come on a journey of the senses with us. In deep gratitude for the gifts given to humanity, we have set a place at the table for you, as you are! Come play Sonic Tea time with us!

Plant Medicine Workshop with Nich Von

If you are interested in encountering master plants and making the most of the experience, this is the workshop for you. Our goal is to help you squeeze every last drop you can out of our time with the plants. Whether this is your first time working with plants or you are looking to deepen your advanced work, all are welcome here. We only ask that you come with a serious commitment to our method and to your own progress.

Working with a plantas maestra (plant teacher) is a very powerful and ancient technology that can purify your energy, body and awaken you to your purpose in this life. Hear your heart’s song again and remember who you are and what you came here to do.

If you are reading this, then Pachamama is already calling you. She wants us to return to a state of natural harmony and balance within oursleves because we are her most dynamic creation and we have become confused by our feelings of separateness from the rest of nature.

During this workshop we will cover:

History and background of working with plants as teachers
How to choose a plant
Techniques for working with the plant to cultivate stronger union
Tips for integrating teachings into our life
At the conclusion of the workshop participants will be invited to participate in a special shamanic ceremony.

We look forward to sharing this journey into plant consciousness and personal growth with you.

At your service,

Pachamama People.

Meditation Cultivation: Creating a Personal Practice

$25 per person

limited to 12 people

There are a variety of ways to access a meditative state, but those who have tried know the path can be elusive. Cultivating an atmosphere conducive to meditating can greatly improve the effectiveness of your practice. Certain smells, special lighting, specific imagery, sounds and especially how we position the body can all help bring us into a state of greater physical comfort. With fewer physical distractions, we can focus inward on the mind. Using techniques to quiet the mind, we can then begin to understand what it means to meditate. Join Stephen as he shares a variety of modalities and techniques useful for meditating. The true reward is within the practice, and this workshop is a great way to cultivate a practice that serves your unique path.

$25 per person
limited to 15 people

Its fun to say but hard to describe, Pranayama can be a HUGE game changer. Obviously anyone reading this knows the basics of breathing, but how often do we give focused attention to our breath? Yogi’s have developed a series of practices exercising control of the breath to improve energy levels, focus the mind, restore health and vitality… and overall they make you feel AMAAAAZIIIING!!!!! Get a detailed breakdown of the mechanics of the breath, learn exercises you can do at home/school/work/ to control your energy levels, leave with deeper connection to this most sacred act of life giving energy. We can go weeks without food, days without water, but mere minutes without our breath… join Stephen and show your breath that you care.
