Fri: 3/9/13 From 3pm to 4:30pm
Rejuvenate your mind, body and whole being with the practice of yin yoga. Replenish and relax with the blissful combination of yoga followed by chocolate treats and wine.
Yin yoga is an essential compliment to our more active styles of yoga. To really understand Yin Yoga, or any form of yoga, one must experience it. In this workshop you will learn how to get deeper into your practice or just begin to start your own journey of discovery.
Yin includes a slow series of floor postures, held in a relaxed state for 3 to 5 minutes to free blockages in the deeper tissues of the body. It will help to improve range of motion and restore your overall energy flow(prana; chi) bringing a quality of steadiness, ease and real presence to your practice both on and off the mat.
Raw cacao is one of the most nutrient rich and complex foods full of antioxidants and has the highest source of magnesium of any other food. Cacao also contains Anandamide, known as the feel-good “Bliss Chemical”. The cacao bean is considered a fruit and grows on the Theobroma Cacao tree, which is Latin for “food of the gods”.

Shamanic Purification Workshop with Paul
Saturday Feb 23rd 4:30-6pm
Learn to draw upon the power of your heart and connect intimately with your spirit and with one another in this wonderful community gathering ending with a “breaking of bread” (light snacks provided).
“Sound is a powerful bridge that can carry healing power from the spirit worlds into this world”.
Join Ceremonial Leader Paul Tootalian in a spiritual celebration of Wicozani, the Lakota word for the inner life or good life, in this workshop focused on the spirituality of America’s First Nations. You will experience a form of Shamanic ritual in which meditation, song, drumming and self-expression/communication is involved.
Similar to chanting or the Om that we do at the opening and closing of yoga class, these ancient songs provide a vibrational and energetic uplift. They come from a physical, mental, and spiritual discipline that interestingly originated right here in the Americas. And like yoga, this Ceremonial work can lead to significant improvements in mental health. Learn how The Lakota Spiritual Path known as The Red Road and its ancient shamanic rituals of purification complement practices like yoga and meditation. Come and feel the energetic uplift of Matakuye O’yasin (meaning “We are all related”), and experience the interconnection and oneness we all share as people native to planet earth.
