Sun, March 20 at 6:30pm – Caledonia

Join Kevin for an experience in sound. Allow the vibrations from tibetan singing bowls and the Earth gong to heal and transform the physical, emotional and spiritual layers of the body. The sound of the singing bowls creates deep relaxation, clears the mind and helps recognize feelings and emotional energy. The earth gong produces frequencies and overtones that can deliver the  listener to a place beyond the ego. Students typically lay comfortably on the floor in savasana but a favorite meditation seat or gentle yoga poses are welcomed. Students are encouraged to: Wear comfortable clothing, Bring yoga props (bolsters/blankets) for support, Don’t eat a heavy meal 2 hours beforehand, Be well hydrated.  $25 Sign Up Here!

Meditation & Yoga Nidra – Sat, Jan 22 at 12:30pm – Caledonia

Led by Jamie Marion E-RYT200 YACEP. During this workshop we will discuss and explore multiple meditation techniques including Yoga Nidra.

Expect a short, gentle yoga asana practice to help relax the body along with a meditation discussion and a 45-minute Yoga Nidra. Perfect for beginners and seasoned yogis looking to connect to their meditation practice. No yoga asana or meditation experience necessary.

Led by Jamie Marion E-RYT200 YACEP. This workshop will help you fire up your core physically and energetically. When we work to bring strength and flexibility into our center we create a stronger and safer yoga practice and we bring more stability into our life off the mat as well. A strong core helps us to realize how capable and strong we are in life as well as in our yoga practice. This class will include plenty of core work as well as twists and back bends to create a healthy balance of suppleness and strength in the body. We will cover using the core to float forward and backward during sun salutations as well as how core strength helps us in intermediate to advanced yoga postures. Expect to be challenged physically in a playful environment. What to bring: a pair of socks, a towel and a playful spirit. Current yoga teachers can receive 2 CEUs. $25 Sign Up Here!
