This transformative experience, empowers you by teaching you how to induce relaxation in the physical, mental and emotional body by merely using the breath and mental rotation of consciousness. The atmosphere is inviting, calm and safe. Please join us this Saturday if you would like to train your mind and body for meditation and deep relaxation.

Winter Detox Jan 4th & 18th from 4-6:15pm Detox, Cleanse and Purify Your Body: Your body is designed to assimilate nutrients, detoxify and eliminate everyday. After a holiday season filled with rich foods, sugar, and alcohol, our bodies may need a little extra help: In this Winter Detox Workshop Carolyn will focus on deep twists and hip openers. Deep twisting compresses and massages our internal organs, aids in digestion, stimulates the circulation in our body, and rids our old blood by pushing it out and replacing it with new, and oxygen filled blood. Twists provide an abundance of benefits and are the building blocks for tissue healing.

Hip openers will help us to reconnect to our center and ground ourselves to the earth and to our lives. Stress, fear, anxiety and depression, some of the emotions associated with holiday season, create sensations and imprints in the physical and energetic body: samskaras. In this workshop, we will shed old samskaras through hips openings, relaxation, and long deep yogic breath. Hip opening asanas soothe the nervous system and allows the body to shift its attention from warding off stress towards relaxation. When we detoxify our mental and emotional states, we detoxify the physical body too.

This 2.25 hour workshop is composed of a combination of deep, therapeutic work, pranayama and some heating building asanas. This workshop is designed to cleanse your body and clear your mind with poses that will heat and create space in the body, aiding in digestion and mental clarity. This workshop designed for anyone who wishes to detox their body.Pre-register online for $35 up to Jan 1st or pay $40 thereafter/at the door.

Inversions for Beginners Workshop Jan 11th from 4-6:15pm: This workshop is interactive and slow-paced to provide space for questions and answers. Carolyn will introduce a pose, demonstrate it, and answer questions you may have before exploring the asana yourself. Practitioners will explore and investigate the asana thoroughly, ask questions before we move onto the next sequence. This workshop is an opportunity to interact with Carolyn on a personal level and use her guidance to dissect your practice and facilitate a greater understanding of the beauty and power of yoga inversions.

Inversions are the most powerful of the asanas. They are in part the reason why we do our asana practice: to build strength and flexibility to invert. There are many physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits to inverting. In Yoga philosophy it is said that inverting will reverse or slow the aging process. There is a nectar, amrita, that is said to flow from the pituitary gland (from behind the 3rd eye) and drips down into the fire of the body where it is consumed. When we invert, we retain the nectar in its home of the pituitary gland behind the 3rd eye and are kept youthful. Physically inversions strengthen arms, legs, and spine while improving digestion, and stimulating abdominal organs, the pituitary gland: the master gland that regulates the endocrine system and all the other glands in our body. Inversions are mentally stimulating, and expand our consciousness, leading us to the path of enlightenment.

This non competitive, workshop is an exploration of one’s mental, emotional and physical abilities and limitations: understanding where we are on our path. It is a workshop of self-study or svadhyayaas well as inverting. This 2.25 hour workshop is designed for people who have been practicing yoga for at least 1 year. Learn how to invert safely with proper alignment and intention!

Reiki Level 1 Training on Jan 25th & 26th (3-7pm/2-6:30pm) In Reiki Level 1, with Michelle Shinagawa, you will learn the history of Reiki, about chakras and aura, and be initiated to activate Reiki Level 1 energy. You will also learn the hand positions and protocol to treat yourself and others. At the end of the this two day training you will earn a certificate of attendance and ultimately a certificate of completion once you’ve completed all the work associated with Reiki Level 1. All your materials are included in this training.

Michelle has studied extensively with many Eastern and Western Reiki instructors in the US and Japan can bring in a unique combination various techniques and philosophies. She is very passionate about teaching Reiki because her vision is that more people will have Peace, Passion, Beauty and Love in their lives and in the world.

You may use your Reiki experience for your own personal well being and self care: to balance the chakras in your body and help keep yourself healthy and strong. Or you may  choose to share your new knowledge and energy to help heal others. In either case Reiki is very nurturing and adapts to the needs of the individual and those you come into contact with.
