In this workshop, we will discuss the ashtanga yoga method, how it works, etiquette in a Mysore room, and what to expect. We will discuss Surya Namaskara A and B, the standing postures, and set you up to feel comfortable in a Mysore setting. Leave your expectations at the door and try not to attach yourself to a number of postures. This workshop is intended for beginners or beginner minds. It’s intended to help you feel comfortable with a beginner friendly practice that you can take with you to a Mysore room, where you will be able to expand and grow over time. Bring a mat, we’ll be practicing! Hope to see you there!

Clear, Balance & Awaken Your Chakras

In this workshop, we will take a deep dive into the Chakra System, or seven energy centers of the body as first referenced in the Vedas of India thousands of years ago. Participants will learn their significance, where imbalances contribute to discord and even dis-ease, and finally how to bring about balance, healing, and harmony to potentiate your best life. Energy healing tools, vibrational sound instruments, crystals, color therapy, and guided visualizations will be used. This workshop is open to all and will benefit everyone! You will walk away with applicable knowledge and insight to not only yourself but also all your relations. Learning to clear and balance your Chakra System is a lifelong practice and indispensable tool to manifest more peace, ease, empowerment, and awakening!

My goal is that you will not only be able to find harmony within yourself but also be able to share this beautiful practice with your friends, family and even children. Please bring a journal and pen to take notes. We will not be practicing, so wear comfy clothes to sit in. Meditation included 🙂
