Activity Descriptions....

 Kundalini Yoga-  An uplifting blend of spiritual and physical practices, Kundalini Yoga incorporates movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, and the chanting of mantras, such as Sat Nam, meaning "truth is my identity." The goal is to build physical vitality and increase consciousness. It derives its name through a focus on awakening kundalinienergy through regular practice of meditation, pranayama, chanting mantra and yoga asana. 

TRE - (Tension and Trauma Release Exercises).  A Somatic restoration and body harmony technique is an effective approach to releasing deeply held body tension and accumulated stress, by "shaking it off".   Our bodies are built to protect us from trauma and stress and shaking is the body’s recovery response.  TRE is the practice that activates the body’s recovery process.  Through a series of physical stretches (from ankle to hips), the body welcomes a natural shaking, which releases stored overwhelm, restores balance and builds resiliency for life’s stresses. Shaking causes deep relaxation which reduces stress levels and increases the resiliency of the body, which is done through experiencing and learning self-regulation (learning to be present with the body’s experience, without overwhelm).  Whether you have stress, anxiety, physical tension, injury trauma, PTSD, or simply a person who wants to become more resilient and just feel better about life, you can benefit from TRE.   TRE is not recommended for women who are pregnant. 

Energy Exercises and Meridian Tapping (similar to EFT) -- Our bodies are energy and meridians are rivers of energy that flow through the body.  A daily routine of body energy moving exercises helps our body flow in harmony with the universal flow of life.   Also, when we think, the body feels, that's what the mind body connection is about.   Tapping is a life skill acupressure technique, that empowers you to change and reprogram your stress.  Stress is the body’s reaction to perception.    Meridian Tapping is a simple technique that uses your fingers to tap on specific meridian points to disrupt the connection between the mind and body.  Tapping shifts the flow of energy, which in turn shifts how you feel and experience your thoughts. Shifting away from stress can free the energy to flow in a new direction.  Meridian Tapping can be used anywhere, anytime to provide in the moment relief and shifting of energy.  It’s a living skill that can be used to decrease stress and worry and increase self worth and self confidence.  When we hold onto stress, the energy system of the body stays in a state of overwhelm, which tapping shifts to restore balance.  Tapping can be used to address and resolve nearly every stress that life can throw at us.

Chakra Balancing -  Using visualization, Energy Tapping and our vibrational voices, we will imagine colors, tap the energy body and hum vedic ancient sounds to circulate energy through all the 7 chakras, to restore balance. Each of the chakras has a unique frequency and vibration, which we can tune ourselves, to help align our body energy wheels along with the universal flow of life.  

Guided Meditation --  Adapted from the book FULL BODY PRESENCE (S. Durana), 3 meditations have been developed for each:  body awareness, world healing, self nourishment & grounding and world healing.  Each meditation is gently read to guide students into relaxation and integration of the meditation topic.  Class participants only need to enjoy the guided verbal meditation while they are in a comfortable position (sitting or lying down).  

Sound Bath -- Class participants are invited to sit back or lay back and enjoy the sound of high frequency crystal bowls and live tuning forks.  The high frequency vibration will help raise the vibration of the body, to match the frequency of  universal life flow.  There are no words to this music, only the instruments of crystal bowls, drums and flutes.   Live Tuning forks will create the vibrational frequency of 528Hz, which will be waved (as forks are like wands), over each class participant, to raise their vibration.

Higher Self Connection Meditation-- Connecting with your most deep purpose or just free your heart, mind and spirit, opening yourself to infinite possibilities.    Come in to a DEEP SESSION where we will be having Deep breathing, dance movements, music, meditation, connection with our Higher self and with our Hearts.  We will by using SIMPLE ANCIENT TECHNIQUES that you can use everywhere, any day, any time, but the most important thing is: We are going to have fun and spread the Joy in our Hearts.

Essential Oils and Emotional Well-Being-- Learn why we should we use essential oils for emotional wellness. We'll address fears that block the clarity we need to gain personal power. Learn how essential oils can eliminate overwhelming feelings and boost our self-esteem so we can clearly see our visions and give us protection to live out life's purpose. At the end of the workshop participants will be able to purchase custom blends.  Additional oils and blends also available for purchase.

Comfy clothing, bathing suit (for paddle yoga or ocean), Yoga mat, personal items (toiletries, clothing, sun screen), refillable water bottle and whatever else you'd like.  We welcome you to unplug for a few days, however wifi is available.
