NEW MOON SOUND BATH

Sunday, August 4th, 2024
🕰️ 3 to 4:30 P.M.

With April Daly
$35 per person

Join April Daly for a powerful intention-setting, New Moon Sound Bath! Sound baths facilitate new intentions for manifestation by creating a meditative state that aligns the mind and body with desired outcomes.

We’ll begin with connecting to the breath to calm and clear the mind enhancing mental clarity. Next, we will set our intentions by writing them in a provided journal. This practice harnesses the new moon’s energy of new beginnings to support growth and transformation.

Then, we will do a few minutes of gentle yoga to help prepare the body for the meditation that the Sound Bath provides, by releasing tension and promoting relaxation, allowing for a deeper and more focused meditative Sound experience.

The Sound Bath will consist of both Himalayan and crystal bowls, gongs, tuning forks, chimes, bells, and drumming.

All materials and props will be provided. We have mats, blankets, and bolsters. Just wear comfortable clothes and come with an open mind. This class is suitable for all levels.

TRAPEZE YOGA WORKSHOP

Sunday, August 25th, 2024
🕰️ 4 to 6 P.M.

With Shannon & Teresa
$40 per person

Join us for our 3rd Trapeze Yoga Workshop, where you will learn the benefits of using the trapeze to add functional movements to your exercise routine. Functional movements are those we do everyday, like hinging, squatting, bending, pushing, pulling and so on. By keeping up with all these movements, you will keep your body healthy, strong and pliable – and in turn, you will be less prone to injuries. 

The trapeze also allows us to do a lot of fun inversions in a safe and supportive manner. We will show you step by step what to do – but you can skip this part if you wish. 

We end this session with a very pleasant coccoon savasana, while singling bowls are played. Refreshments will be served and there’ll be plenty of photo opportunities.

“The highest form of spiritual practice is self-observation without judgment.” ~Swami Kripalu

  • Do you find yourself beating yourself up for things you did or said?
  • Do you have a hard time forgiving yourself for small mistakes that, in your mind, seem huge?
  • Do you feel pressure to be present, perfect, always available, always willing to help?
  • Do you often feel like you get lost in the needs of others?
  • Is it hard to take time for yourself and do what YOU like?
  • Do you feel like other’s approval is important for your well-being?
  • Do you expect way more from yourself than you expect from others?

If you answered yes to at least one of the questions above, you will benefit from our Reflective Journaling Series. In this series, we will explore the concepts of ego, presence, deep listening, self-acceptance, and more.

We will start with a guided relaxation (Jenn Young will stop by a few times to perform Reiki and help us relax more deeply). Then, we will pose a question or share a concept, and encourage you to write the first thing that comes to mind. After a few minutes, we will take time to talk about that question or concept. YOU DO NOT NEED TO SHARE WHAT YOU WRITE, THAT IS YOURS TO KEEP. You can choose to participate in the discussion, or just listen.

Your privacy is sacred to us. Whatever is shared in the room stays there. We promise to meet you where you are.

Our goal is to help you to know yourself better (even the hidden parts), and start to accept all parts of you. They all makeup who you are, the unique and sacred being who’s here to make our world a better, kinder place.

Jennifer Miranda

Jenn took her very first yoga class in 2012 while searching for a fitness
routine that would improve her strength and flexibility. After that first class,
she got hooked. Yoga changed her life not only because of the physical
benefits of doing yoga but she also discovered that yoga has greatly improved
her mental focus and self-awareness. Because of this, she decided to share
her practice with others. Jenn completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training
in April 2017 and is a registered yoga instructor (RYT-200) with the Yoga
Alliance.

Jenn’s ultimate goal as a yoga teacher is to lead students towards a deeper
level of physical fitness and healthy lifestyle along with mental peace. She
loves to help beginners feel comfortable in their practice and learn essential
postures while motivating and challenging the more experienced yogis and
ensuring a safe practice for everyone. Maintaining her own personal practice
while learning and gaining inspiration from other yogis enables her to design
innovative, energetic, and fun sequences that are fit for all levels.

Jenn is also a professional portrait photographer and her love of both yoga
and photography paved the way for Yoga Photography. The skills she has
acquired over the years allow her to best capture yogis demonstrating beauty,
strength, and grace through movement.

Carrie DelP

Carrie has had a consistent, daily, at-home yoga and meditation practice for many years and was finally inspired to take her love of yoga to the next level and embark on teacher training in 2022. She enjoys teaching a more powerful yoga flow with a strong focus on breathing. Carrie firmly believes that a little self-love goes a long way, and she feels extremely grateful to be able to share her practice with people.

She is also a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America with a Bachelors in Baking Pastry Arts and Business Administration. Camille began her yoga and meditation practice in 2009 when she was dealing with chronic panic attacks. She found that through mindfulness practices she could feel like herself again. She is now inspired to guide clients through a relaxing and peaceful practice and leave them with tools to help manage stress and anxiety.

Carrie Parker Gastelu, E-500 RYT, has been teaching yoga since 1993. Carrie began her journey when Yogi Raj Mani Finger initiated Carrie into the ISHTA Yoga lineage after training with Mani’s son, Yogi Raj Alan Finger. In addition, she has studied many other yoga traditions as well as anatomy, physiology, movement, and awareness practices to create an eclectic style all her own. She is known for her honest, non-dogmatic yet passionate approach.

Lisa Podesta-Coombs

When Lisa found yoga in 2008, she started to find herself again and it set her on a path of health and healing. She received her 200HR RYT certification from Raji Thron of Yoga Synthesis, and her 30HR Chakra Yoga Teacher Training certificate with Anodea Judith and holds a Y12SR (Yoga of 12 Step Recovery) certification. She is also a Holistic Health Coach (certified through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition). Lisa believes we’re all on a journey of learning how to trust ourselves; she helps her clients build that trust by supporting them in creating better habits for a better life through various functional movement modalities like yoga, barre, Pilates & strength training, mindset, and whole food nutrition.

Forever a student with a passion for people, holistic health, and self-actualization, Lisa is always embracing opportunities to advance her education to better serve; Ayurveda workshops & immersions have been of particular interest as she continues to deepen her knowledge of and experience with food as medicine and she recently completed Unleash Her Power Within, a transformational program of rediscovering our truest selves, powered by Tony Robbins.  

As she continues to give herself space and grace to nourish her natural self and actualize her potential, Lisa continues to share the gift of movement as medicine to inspire authenticity & health in body, mind, and spirit. You can expect mindful, accessible, dynamic, playful, and uplifting classes from Lisa.

Tanisha Sutton

Tanisha’s yoga journey began when she was an undergraduate student studying at university. Changes in her health coupled with anxiety over grades, relationships, and life in general, forced her to search for healthy lifestyle choices she could implement to help manage the stress that she was experiencing as a new adult. A friend of hers suggested that she attend some community yoga classes to help with the anxiety and increase her daily physical activity. Initially, she was reluctant and filled with all these false ideas about yoga and the people who practiced yoga. Like many others, she was concerned that her body type and lack of flexibility automatically excluded her from being a student. Curiously yet hesitantly, she journeyed on to her first class and began laying the foundation for a home and public practice that has supported her over the years.

On this journey, she has discovered that yoga has nothing to do with appearances nor is there anything, but an open mind needed to begin. She intends to provide you with a gentle yoga session that is safe, inclusive, and accessible. Her classes are an expression of self-love and are a deliberate choice to tend to ALL the parts of our being that are neglected, ignored, or disregarded during the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Through meditation, deep breathing, and gentle movement we will collectively share space to observe, rest and re-set. Tanisha is honored to share her practice with you and looks forward to seeing you on the mat!
