Moon Practice — July 15 at 7:30pm
A Special Full Moon class taught by Mackie!
Monday, July 15
Join Mackie for a healing recuperative practice that offers a host of benefits. Designed to release tension and produce a state of ease and calm, the evening includes gentle breath based move-ment, deeply supportive Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra.
Restorative Yoga is a therapeutic practice that provides a supportive environment for total relaxation and a wonderful preparation for sleep or meditation.
Yoga Nidra is a deep relaxation technique and a form of meditation. The bodymind enters a completely relaxed sleeping state with some semblance of awareness. It is one of the most profound and accessible ways of positively shifting unconscious habitual thought patterns and belief systems.
• feel rested, relaxed, rejuvenated • decrease anxiety • improve your mood • regenerate and repair your cells • increase body awareness • improve mental clarity • explore the wonder embodiment
• change your thinking

Cacao Ceremony & Sound Bath — July 21 at 6:30pm
Sunday, July 21
Led by Christine Aprile and Madre Jaguar
*Please bring your own mug
Since ancient times, Cacao has been used by the Aztec and Mayan cultures in sacred rituals to commune with Source, access Divine Wisdom and amplify the power of our prayers. This sacred plant medicine when used with intention acts as a catalyst to shift old patterns, expand the heart center and activate the higher chakras.
Join Madre Jaguar and Christine of Receptive Tarot as we commune with the sacred medicine of Cacao and Sound Healing, open to the wisdom of our hearts, commune with Source, and reach out in prayer and meditation to our guides and ancestors to access Divine Wisdom and Healing. This ceremony will have a focus on tapping into the wisdom, joy and creativity of the inner child as well as addressing any wounds that are preventing us from honoring and embracing this archetype.
Please wear comfortable and loose clothing (white/light colors preferred). Bring a journal, colored pencils and if possible, your favorite childhood photo as well as any crystals or power objects you'd like to charge on our altar. Remember to also bring your own mug... and a friend or two!
First Fridays - Kundalini Yoga, Meditation and Community Gathering — August 2 at 6:30pm
First Fridays - Yoga, Meditation and Community Gathering
Spiritual growth can be hard and lonely. That’s why it’s important to actively step out of isolation and to regularly celebrate how far we’ve come. And that’s exactly what we’ll be doing at Siesta Yoga on the first Friday of every month.
First Fridays at Siesta Yoga is all about connecting to our true selves through yoga and meditation, and connecting to fellow travelers on similar paths of awakening and healing. When we practice in community, the group energy helps us to go beyond our perceived limitations and we leave feeling connected and uplifted, with a deep sense of “I got this, no matter what life throws at me”.
We’ll start off with an opening circle to activate the group energy. Then we’ll do an uplifting yoga set to release the stress of the week, followed by a centering meditation and a deep relaxation. And it’s going to be a very special kind of deep relaxation! Because we are lucky to have sound healer DeeAnna as part of our community, and she will be playing her gong as we comfortably lie on our mats letting those ancient, healing vibrations wash over us. After closing the circle, we will celebrate community with homemade yogi tea and snacks (gluten-free and vegan options will be available).
So come to First Fridays and let yourself be seen, held and understood. We are all in this together, and now we have a space where we can actually BE ourselves together.
What do you need to bring? A yoga mat and a cushion, if you have them. If you’d like to share a snack or dish, feel free to bring that, if you don’t no worries, we’ve got enough for everyone. And bring yourself, just the way you are. Even if you’re nervous or anxious or you had a bad day, just come, all states of mind are welcome.
I’m looking forward to sharing this special evening of connection and celebration with you. Sat Nam!
