UPCOMING EVENTS AT STUDIO 108

Sunday, 6/2 🕰️ 6-8 P.M.: Reiki & Sound Healing

With April & Jenn 💫 $40 per person

We bring to you two incredibly skilled healers, April Daly & Jennifer Ford-Young, to offer you an evening of relaxation and healing. This is a peaceful and therapeutic experience. April utilizes the power of sound vibrations to induce deep states of relaxation and meditation. The vibrations from April’s instruments will resonate with both your physical body and your auric energy bodies (fields) to promote healing and a sense of well-being. Combined with Reiki, in itself, deeply relaxing and healing, and you’re in for a treat. At the end of the event, Jenn will share what messages came to her, and you can ask questions and share your experience if you wish.

This is a unique opportunity to experience deep healing in a warm, supportive, and safe environment. We provide all the props you may need but please dress in warm and comfortable clothes, and bring socks. If you tend to feel cold when you lie down, bring an extra blanket.

“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.

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!
