Community Yoga Gives Back

 

Community Yoga is committed to SEVA, service to the community for the sake of service. Each year, Community Yoga chooses a worthy charity and spends the year finding ways to donate time, goods/services and money. Join us as we head into our 13th year of giving back all the gifts we are blessed with every day!

 

Angels and Sparrows – 2017 Charity

Their Purpose is to help fight hunger in Huntersville and adjacent towns of Cornelius and Davidson as well as in the North Mecklenburg County unincorporated areas.  Their short-Term Goals are to provide food and nourishment for the bodies and souls of men, women and children who face hunger in their daily lives, without regard to race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin or physical or mental disabilities and to provide a sense of community for those persons affected by hunger.

Express Class

Give yourself a breather in the middle of the day.  This 45 minute class is Community Yoga’s way of giving back to our students as well as offering new students an opportunity to take advantage of a discounted price of $5 per class.  Classes are held Wednesday 10:15 – 11:00  and 11:15 -12:00 pm and Friday, 11:15 – 12:00 pm

(No classes passes – Monthly/ 5/ 10 class – are NOT accepted for this class due to the already low cost.)

 


Sacred Women’s Circle:

Make a commitment, its not always convenient but make it happen 1 day a month.  Being in these Circles never “just happens.”  Your calendar will never just automatically pop up an alert that says “Women’s Circle” without you putting it there.  Intention is necessary.

Being in Circle Invites Support
Being in Circle Invites Accountability
Being in Circle Invites Brainstorming, Feedback, and Ideas
Being in Circle Invites Fun

I see the Sacred Circle as an opening  to connect with other amazing  women.  This is a safe space, where we have a variety of topics ranging from simple sharing to vision boards, health topics, etc.   We share thoughts, ideas, concerns, and even laughter through this monthly offering….all to open and to engage our minds to interesting possibilities.

January 6th, 2017 from 7:30-9:00 pm – Create space and intention for 2017

Journal and Burn – with Sharon Whalen (See Instructors page for Bio)

Join us as we take the time to jounal about 2017 and make room to create an intentional 2017.  If you have frequented our gatherings or visiting the first time, please come to our warm and welcoming space.  All women are welcome, not only CY students.

Yoga Nidra – February 5th 12-1 PM and first Sunday of the month following 


Yoga nidra or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “going-to-sleep” stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed. This state of consciousness is different from meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required. In yoga nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light consciousness. The yogic goal of both paths, deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and meditation are the same, a state called samadhi. Yoga nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness.

Again, donations are greatly appreciated for this service class ($10 recommended or canned goods). All donations go to our charity (see above).
