The human body is an elegant expression of the creative energy of the universe. To stay healthy we must keep that energy flowing and be aware of the messages the body sends us. In this workshop we will use breath practice to settle the body enough to hear its messages, dynamic movements of a Kundalini yoga kriya to access our vital energy and meditation to relax the mind creating the environment for the body to heal. Each part of the workshop will be enhanced by the experience of Essential Oils.
Activate your inner Chi with core yoga asanas to train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work in harmony. This leads to better balance, stability, flexibility, and increased strength through core training. Did you know most physical activities depend on stable core muscles?
Then we head over to the barre to find our perfect hybrid balance: yoga, barre, and pilates.
This is an awesome infused high intensity, low impact workout that is easy on the joints. (knees and hips)

This workshop is a donation based event that will consist of meditation, breathing exercises, and sound healing with singing bowls. There is no yoga or movement practice, so it is appropriate for everyone!

3 powerful healing modalities to open your heart, release blockages and to dream your world into being.
WHAT IS A CACAO CEREMONY?
Sitting in ceremony is an ancient practice and a powerful act of self love, that gives us the time and space to step outside of our hectic lives and to return to the sacred.
It creates an opportunity to journey into the silence within, to reflect upon who we are, how we love, what’s happening in our lives and to see the opportunities available to us.
As we sit in circle, as our ancestors once did, held within sacred space and with the gentle plant medicine of Cacao you will have the opportunity to open up for insight and healing.
Ceremonial Grade Cacao is Chocolate in its most purest and elevated form, a sacred food and medicine that when used in its original ceremonial context, it has the potential to change your life!
Let’s take a seat around the ‘fire’ for divine guidance and to create space in our lives in order to dream and manifest!
