Yin and Reiki Workshop

Instructors: Laurie Galish and Lisa Alexander
Saturday April 28
10:00 – 11:30 PM
$35

Yin yoga is a passive style of yoga that targets deep connective tissue & fascia, rather than muscle. By holding seated or reclined poses for an extended period of time, greater flexibility & improved range of motion are achieved.

“Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.” ~ International Center for Reiki Training.
Combining these two healing modalities is an incredible journey to unblocking stress in the body, mind and heart.


Explore Your Essence (E.Y.E.)

Instructor: Marcus Rogers
Saturday, May 5
2:00 – 4:00 pm
$30

This two (2) hour yoga workshop will be centered around the activation and exploration of the elements dignifying the roots of the third (3rd) EYE chakra (a magnetic, vibrational energetic place of holding). This practice, having both physical and metaphysical benefits, will be infused with grounding poses and will also focus on unique pranayama techniques that will guide you back into flow, finding a more steady “still” balance; Samastitahi. This workshop aims to help you gain a clearer sense of intuition, cultivate wisdom and develop courage to be who you are and discover your personal truth. Expect to leave with a fresher pair “eagle eyes”…a deeper awareness of your true nature (your essence) and a more neutralized, intuitive internal compass. This offering will conclude with an optional brief reflection and dharma talk. Open to all.
