HEALTH & SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT 

SOUND MEDITATIONS IN THE SALT CAVE

with Pam Booras, RYT-200, CTN    

The Second Wednesday of every month:   September 12th, October 10th, November 14th, & December 12th

This guided meditation will take place in the Salt Cave and includes a salt therapy treatment. We will be using Selenite Harmonizers during the hour in the Salt Cave. Selenite is a powerful cleansing and healing tool that has the ability to clear, protect and shield your energy body. It is one of the few minerals that has the healing ability to quickly unblock stagnant and negative energy, removing all energy blockages to create a fluid flow of energy throughout the body. Selenite crystals shield you from outside influences, since one of the Selenite healing properties is to evoke protection from the angelic realm. It helps to dispel all negative energy from the body and mind, bringing calming energies, deep peace and mental clarity.

 Cost:  $35

Please understand that all workshops are non-refundable!

YOGA NIDRA IN THE SALT CAVE WITH ESSENTIAL OILS

DATES:  To Be Announced

Yoga Nidra means Yogic Sleep. It is a state of conscious Deep Sleep. In Meditation, you remain in the Waking state of consciousness, and gently focus the mind, while allowing thought patterns, emotions, sensations, and images to arise and go on. However, in Yoga Nidra, you leave the Waking state, go past the Dreaming state, and go to Deep Sleep, yet remain awake.

You will be offered therapeutic grade essential oil to breathe in/apply to enhance your journey. We will lead you through a sequential process of moving inward: first the body, then the breath, then the mind, and then the emptying into Yoga Nidra, conscious Deep Sleep.

Yoga Nidra is the destination, not the journey!

Yoga Nidra is a place where accelerated healing and learning can happen. One hour of yoga nidra practice restores the body similarly to 3 hours of deep sleep.Yo ga Nidra brings you into a deeply restorative healing state that will release tension, enhance your vital life force, and leave you with a greater sense of peace and wellbeing.
 

These events will be led either by Kate Brown or Diana Carlson.
Kate is a Certified Clinical Aromatherapist and a Certified Yoga Teacher.
Diana is a Certified Yoga Teacher and Yoga Therapist.

Cost: $35. Open to the first 8 people to register - Click Register for Class button. Three more will be accepted by phone if you are okay with a restorative floor set-up with bolsters, but you must call us to register your space.  This is non-refundable unless we can fill your space.

YOGA & MOVEMENT WORKSHOPS

 HIPS TO FEET - A SOMATIC WORKSHOP

with Nancy Nesto-Freske

Thursday, September 27th

5:30-7:00 pm

The area of our body, from our hips to our feet, is critical for fluid, pain-free, every day movement. Whether it’s walking up or down stairs, hiking, cross-country skiing, playing a sport or just walking your dog, if you have any problems with aches, pains or discomfort in this area, you know how difficult this can make life. 

Learning simple, gentle and easy Somatic Movements can make a huge difference in any activity where you need to be on your feet and move your legs. Tight hips, being unable to sit on the floor cross-legged, plantar fasciitis, osteoarthritis or “bad knees”, these movements will address the root cause of the problem! Practiced on a regular basis, you will soon experience less pain, aches and discomfort.

Please join us on for this 1.5 hour class that will help you get you back on your feet and enjoying life!  Follow link to register, or call us!
