VIRYA: Vitality, Passion and Backbends — November 11 at 1:30pm
Led by Billy
2-part Backbend Exploration Series
Sundays, November 11 + 18
Through correct practice and non-attachment, backbending postures have the potential to unlock a vast reservoir of prana (life current), improving the flow of cerebro-spinal fluid, breathing efficiency, mental clarity, and increasing our compassion for ourselves and others.
In this workshop we’ll:
• Learn the anatomical principles of backbends
• Address the patterns of compensation, which often lead to injury in backbends
• Discuss how to intelligently approach deeper, more “advanced” backbends
• Experience the subtle dynamics of the latent physical, psychological, and spiritual potential that backbends can awaken within you!
Kundalini Yoga + Gong — November 13 at 6:30pm
A Journey into Wholeness -
Relax - Release - Renew
Led by Charisma, with guest gong player, Dee Anna.
Not only do we hear the gong with our ears, we feel it with our bodies.
And that’s the secret of gong baths: the vibration goes deep into our body and cells, clearing the mind, stimulating healing, and releasing old blocks and patterns that no longer serve us.
Join us as we share the ancient combination of Kundalini Yoga and Gong to take you on a Journey into Wholeness, leaving you refreshed, renewed and relaxed.
First we prepare the body and mind with Kundalini Yoga exercises, breathwork and meditation, melting away stress and releasing tension, centering you in the truth of who you really are: a radiant, abundant and vibrant being.
Then, centered and relaxed, lying on your mat, covered by a blanket, surrounded by soft light, you’ll be able to let the healing sounds of the gong wash over you, receiving its vibration into every part of your being.
You will leave the event feeling grounded, calm, relaxed, more connected to yourself and ready to drift off into blissful sleep.
Mats, blankets, yogi tea and light snacks will be provided. Just wear comfy clothes and be ready to relax and let go.
Dee Anna and Charisma are looking forward to sharing this special experience with you!
