FEAST FOR THE SOUL

Beginning in January the annual Winter Feast for the Soul begins. Now in its 10th year, the Feast is a time when people worldwide have committed to their personal spiritual practice in hopes of discovering an inner landscape of peace. The idea is that if inner peace is experienced by enough people, it can’t help but by be felt around the world.  Last year over 20,000 people in at least 29 different countries participated in this free worldwide event.  The Dalai Lama has endorsed the Feast for years now, and Deepak Chopra says about the event: “Meditating 40 minutes a day for 40 days, as done in the Feast for the Soul won’t just further one’s conscious evolution. Humanity will be at peace when enough individuals choose to make peace a part of their spiritual practice.”  Given the challenges and struggles we see taking place in the world today, this event enables people to commit to the life changing practice of peace through stillness and meditation.

McNames Workshop

Not knowing a thing about astanga in the mid 90’s I signed up for Kathy’s workshop.  She walked into the room as bright as bright can be.  That brightness, born from her joy and love for yoga stayed with me when I left the workshop.  Over 20 years later her approach is at the core of every class I take and teach.  The agenda below will be WHAT we do but this is more about who we are BEING when we do it.  Please come and experience her version of yogic brightness for yourself.

Cost for the workshop – $155 for 3 days

Friday January 19th   6:30 – 9:00 PM  – Intro to Astanga

Yoga Nidra

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.

Starting February, first Sunday of the month, 12:00-1:00 pm

Drop In. $10 donation  recommended toward Community Yoga’s charity, Angels and Sparrows.

Sacred Women’s Circle:

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 Issue etc.   We share thoughts, ideas, concerns, and even laughter through this monthly offering….all to open and to engage my mind to interesting possibilities not only for myself, but for the community.

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

Biggi, from Wiesbaden Germany where I was trained as a medical assistant.  Before I moved to the USA in 1991 I studied to be an aesthetician.
My personal orientation has always been one towards helping people. After working as an aesthetician for more than 25 years now, I can honestly say that I found my calling and it truly is a fun and rewarding profession.
During those years many women have asked me lots of questions about skin and skincare.
Let’s sit together in a comfortable round and give our facial muscles a workout, finishing with a relaxing self facial massage. Both will help blood circulation and lymph flow and prevent and buff (or is it puff?) up fine lines.
Please come without foundation and eye make up if possible.
Looking forward to a fun evening.
