This workshop is an interactive Meditation experience. We will start with a brief overview of the history and benefits of Meditation, then move right into a series of 4-5 guided Meditation experiences, along with breaks for gentle stretching using common Yoga poses.
We will learn how to create space and length in the body through stillness and relaxation of our muscles while keeping our mind focused on our breath and the releasing of the body.
This event is part of our reoccurring Kundalini Art and Yoga Workshop that happens on the last Saturday of each month. No experience necessary. Materials are provided.
Journey with Mantra.
What is a mantra? A mantra is a syllable, word or phrase in one of the sacred languages (like Sanskrit & Ghurmeki) and sometimes in English, which elevates or modifies consciousness through its meaning, the sound itself, rhythm, tone, and even the reflexology of the tongue on the palate. In this workshop we will explore mantra through chanting, moving and drawing.

Right in time for Mother's Day! Treat yourself or someone you love to our first Yogassage Workshop.
Yogassage is the union of the ancient healing arts of yoga and massage. Restorative gentle yoga, Yin yoga, Bodywork massage, and Meditation combined to give you 2-hours of physical relaxation and mental renewing. Experience the benefits of yoga such as increased flexibility and improved posture while enjoying therapeutic massage to decrease stress, improve sleep, and decrease overall pain and stiffness.
Back by popular demand! Our second self-love workshop.
When we think of love and relationships we never consider it to mean loving and having a healthy relationship with ourselves. Would you say the things you say to yourself to a best friend, child, or parent? We are our own worst critic and we treat ourselves with harshness that is unknown to others. To live happily, we must have a peaceful and healthy relationship with our body and mind.
In this workshop you will learn techniques to recognize your negative emotions and move past the judgement and criticisms we inflict upon ourselves. Empower yourself by reclaiming your health and declaring your own authentic beauty. We will identify environmental and societal contributions to the progression of negative body image and learn how we can reaffirm our thoughts. Self-love is important and you deserve to experience it.
All are welcome.
On Tuesday, April 3rd, Jessica and Chris Alter received a phone call that no parent should ever have to receive. Their sweet, perfect, beautiful little baby boy was found unresponsive during his nap at daycare. He was transported to St. Lukes, where they were unable to bring him back.
Their little IVF miracle, that they waited nearly a decade for, is now their guardian angel. Jess and Chris had 4 precious months with their sweet Lincoln. There are no words to describe the feelings of devastation, numbness, and complete and utter heartbreak they are forced to experience. There are no words to explain the feeling of seeing parents so badly wanting to hold their baby boy again, and not being able to.
Please join us in our Class for a Cause, a benefit for the beautiful life of Lincoln Wayne Alter. 100% of the proceeds will go to Jess and Chris.
We are asking for a $10 minimum donation, cash or check. Space is limited so please sign-up on our website. Raffle tickets will be available for various gift baskets.
