Wednesday, Nov 20th7-8:30pm Wouldn’t it be great if you knew precisely where to plant the garden and when? Or perhaps you wonder about which opportunities to say yes to, and which to say no? How about what people you should have around you in your inner circle and which to avoid? Maybe you’d love the ability to determine the best supplement that can actually help improve your level of wellness vs. which ones are just money down the drain? Maybe you want to consciously manifest something and you need to be able to pick up the signals the Universe is sending your way in order to make it happen. All of that and vastly more are no big deal when utilizing powerful intuition.
Activate, fine-tune and enhance your intuition the Dancing Dolphin Way with Bestselling Author D. Takara Shelor. In this 4-session course she will guide you through exercises and activations to enhance your inner clarity and wisdom, hone your intuitive skills, connect you more fully with inner guides, angels and nature spirits, and develop a working relationship with intuitive tools such as pendulums, crystals, and divination cards. As always, Takara takes you on deep dives into meditation & personal transformation. $11 per class.
Yoga means ‘to yoke’ or ‘to form union with’. It is through the ancient and sacred practices of breath, mantra and movement, we become more aligned with our higher self and all of creation. This is essence of self-care and in committing to these practices we help not only ourselves but all we come into contact with.
The class begins with mantra (sacred chanting), accompanied by harmonium, followed by guided pranayama (breath control), and then flows into an asana series (movement poses). We use these techniques to help center the mind, calm the emotions and bring our bodies into a state of balanced awareness.
A regular yoga practice can bring more strength and flexibility to the body and provide the joints with increased range of motion. Using circular flow and synchronizing the breath with movement activates the parasympathetic state encouraging the body to be nourished and triggers the body’s own natural healing state. When we are strong and flexible in our bodies we are strong and flexible in our life and are able to move through the inevitable challenges life brings with more grace and ease.
If you feel called, join us for morning sangha (gathering of people for spiritual practices) and enjoy the benefits of the group mind often elevating us all higher than we can achieve on our own. Lokah Samastah Sukinoh BhavantuMay All Beings Everywhere Be Happy and Free!
Natural Movement is a practice that engages the most fundamental, evolutionary movements of human beings.
These are the human movement patterns that our species developed and mastered in our vast and diverse earth environment long before (like, millions of years before) working in fields and factories, playing golf, or practicing the asanas of yoga. These movements are still very much a part of us, we just need a little bit of reminding, guidance, and sometimes just permission to carry them out in our lives.
Yes! This means you get to crawl, climb, lift and carry, throw and catch, balance, jump, and roll. This is also a specific time to train and improve more obvious everyday movements like getting up and down off the ground, walking and running, carrying children (or adults, or firewood!), sleep postures, or how to sit on the ground in dozens of different ways. Who is this for? This class is for anybody with a body and can be scaled to work with any injury, limitation, body-type, skill-set, or movement background.
Josh Braden The class will be facilitated by Josh Braden. Josh has a Level II certification in the MovNat method and while he has been practicing natural movement since day 1 of life, he has studied it with great enthusiasm for the past 7 years.
