Bhakti Flow

Bhakti yoga is the practice of devotion and offers an opportunity to add depth and dimension to your asana practice. A dynamic Vinyasa flow is the core of this class, inviting students to move with intention and in rhythm with the breath. This soulful style of yoga is rooted in yogic philosophy and wisdom, and infused with mantras and insights on how to expand your yoga practice beyond the mat and into everyday life. Class begins and/or ends with live harmonium music and beautiful kirtan (melodic Sanskrit chanting) to set the tone for an uplifting journey into mind, body, and spirit. Bhakti is a celebration of and surrender to the divine within each and every being. Come with an open mind and heart, and leave feeling revitalized and re-inspired.

Body Temple: A Tantric Dance Workshop

“This workshop will focus on exploration of the central energy pillar in our spine known as Sushumna. This nadi or meridian is a conduit for energy from Heaven to Earth and back again that runs down the middle of the spine, connecting all chakras from root to crown.
The workshop will combine traditional tantric techniques, Qi-Gong, somatic experiencing, and ecstatic/intuitive dance to support practitioners in gaining more pranic awareness, clearing energetic blockages, developing more somatic intelligence, find stability and awaken to the luminosity within. ”

 

Slow Motion Potion – a slow + spicy vinyasa class

“This practice will invite you to slow down and feel the power of each subtle movement in a spicy vinyasa flow. Moving slowly in practice does not mean easy: it is a skill, it is pleasurable and it asks for more discipline. It is powerful when we consciously slow down and FEEL the feedback from our bodies (physical, emotional, energetic, mental and bliss bodies)

We will be focusing on side body opening, somatic awareness and breath intelligence. The practice will be intentionally cued and sequenced to take you deeper into yourself and support connecting to your inner luminosity. ”

Laughter Yoga and Yoga Nidra (Known for her Yoga Nidra)

“Laughter Yoga is a unique kind of mind-body exercise, which combines unconditional laughter with yogic breathing. Anyone can laugh without relying on humor, jokes or comedy. Laughter is initially simulated as a physical exercise while maintaining eye contact with others in the group and promoting childlike playfulness. In most cases this soon leads to real and contagious laughter. Science has proven that the body cannot differentiate between simulated and real laughter. Laughter Yoga is the only technique that allows adults to achieve sustained hearty laughter without involving cognitive thought. It bypasses the intellectual systems that normally act as a brake on natural laughter.

Scientifically, it has been proven that twenty minutes of laughter is sufficient to develop full physiological and psychological benefit. Some of the proven health benefits of Laugher Yoga include: Reduced stress levels; Boosting of the immune system; Reduced pain; Elevated mood; Happy brain chemistry; Improved circulation; & Greater feelings of kindness, joy, forgiveness & love.

Laughter Yoga is an easy, fun and super-effective way to release stress while inviting more joy into one’s life. It is appropriate for children of ALL ages and all levels of fitness. No prior experience is necessary. Come see for yourself why there are over 10,000 Laughter Clubs in over 120 countries around the world!”

Yoga Nidra Grounding into Vermont

“Join me in a deeply grounding Yoga Nidra class amidst the beauty of Vermont’s picturesque mountains. This OM festival setting serves as the perfect opportunity to absorb the sights, sounds, and sensations of the natural world around us, and to tap into the quiet stillness that can be found there. This session is an invitation to be present with yourself, to explore the movement and sensations of the body, and to cultivate ease in the mind.

Yoga Nidra is the practice of “”yogic sleep”” – a state of conscious relaxation that takes you into a deep, restful state of being. Through soothing, guided meditation, we will explore the subtle realms of the body and mind, and connect with the grounding energy of the earth beneath us. Our journey together will begin with gentle movement and breathing exercises, designed to release tension and bring a sense of balance to the system. We will then move into a series of guided visualizations and body scans, using the power of our imaginations to create a sense of safety and groundedness within the body.

Throughout the practice, you will be encouraged to drop into a state of deep relaxation, releasing any striving or efforting, and allowing yourself to simply be. Through this profound state of relaxation, we can connect more deeply with ourselves, dissolve stress and anxiety, and cultivate a sense of peace and tranquility that we can carry with us long after the class has ended.

This class is open to all levels of experience and is especially suited to those seeking to release stress and tension and connect with a deeper sense of presence and grounding. Come journey with me into the quiet stillness within, and emerge feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and fully embodied.”

Matthew Andrews

Secrets of the Veda – Ancient Teachings for Modern Living

“Have you heard of the Rig Veda? It’s the root text of the Sanskritic yoga traditions. It’s been widely neglected and poorly understood by most modern yoga practitioners. But its symbols conceal a cosmology and practical teachings about psychology, spiritual aspiration, and human evolution.

100 years ago Sri Aurobindo brought revelatory insights to this ancient text. In this 75 minute workshop, Matthew will share these insights and their immediate implications for life in our modern world.”

Life and Death in the Katha Upanishad

“The Katha Upanishad is a treasure trove of profound revelations about life, death, pleasure, pain, longing, and realization. It captures the spirit of the Upanishads in a direct and immediate way with a conversation between a young spiritual aspirant and Death himself.

The longing to know is the catalyst for all spiritual aspiration, and it’s planted in every human at birth. In this workshop, Matthew will share key teachings from the Katha Upanishad and help attendees make the connection between the longing of Nachiketas and their own innate desire to know what is real. ”

Let’s TALK Yoga – Self Discovery to Self Mastery

“Today, at least in the Western world, yoga is seen as another exercise class to take at the gym or at a yoga studio, something that will make your muscles sore for days afterward or at least de-stress you. For thousands of years, the term “yoga” encompassed many things, First and foremost, these ancient versions of yoga were mostly spiritual practices, involving meditation and self mastery. Self-Mastery is the ability to recognize, understand, conquer, and make the most out of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual self.
This session will take you on a journey from self actualization to self discovery to self creation and ultimately to self mastery.”

Consciousness and Science

The question of consciousness has been examined by philosophers and theologians for millennia; for the longest time, debating the nature of consciousness was the exclusive purview of philosophers. But recently a shift has taken place: scientists are getting into the game. Understandably, if science is to be at the cutting edge, it has to be about questions that no one is willing to ask. Has the nature of consciousness finally shifted from a philosophical question to a scientific one that can be solved by doing experiments? The purpose of this session is to challenge and shake up our intuitions about consciousness and to explore the subject by questioning, observing and wondering, and NOT concluding.

Yin Yoga. Bliss for Your Hips and Back.

“Yin Yoga offers a profound journey into relaxation and rejuvenation. Focused on holding passive poses for extended durations, Yin targets the deep connective tissues. In this workshop, we will focus on the hips and back. This deliberate approach cultivates flexibility, releases tension, and stimulates a profound sense of well-being.

Deep stretches held for an extended period go beyond the superficial muscles, delving into the fascia and ligaments. As the body settles into each shape, the breath becomes a guide, fostering mindfulness and a tranquil connection between mind and body. The sustained postures encourage surrender, inviting practitioners to explore the edges of comfort with patience and acceptance.

The magic of Yin lies in its ability to unlock stored energy and promote the free flow of life force throughout the body. This not only alleviates physical discomfort but also nurtures a serene mental landscape.

Embrace the stillness, invite serenity into your hips and back, and embark on a journey of self-discovery and renewal through the beautiful practice of Yin Yoga.”

Navigating Through Strength – a Tarot Investigation

“An extraordinary experience of self-discovery, reflection and guidance; this workshop is an exploration into the world of tarot. More specifically, a deep dive into Strength, the 8 numbered card of the major Arcana.

As we flow further into this year, we can investigate how this card’s energy, interpretations and guidance can support our journey forward, and reflect of how this cards influence has affected this year already.
These discussions can flow into many directions, such as, the card that represents next year, some astrological connections, a group tarot reading and more!

This workshop can shift and change depending on what questions are brought forth, what intentions are present and the engagement of those joining in.
We will meditate, share thoughts, reflect, and create actionable steps to carry forward.
We will hold sacred space for anyone and everyone. This workshop is fully inclusive to all, and accessible for those with no tarot knowledge, and still insightful to those with extensive tarot experience.”

Cultivating Community and Authentic Connections

“To be human is to belong to an interconnected web of relationships – to self,to others and the world around you.

Do you desire to be seen and heard as your authentic self? Would you like to live in coherence with yourself, others, nature and life itself ? It is in our human nature to crave connection and authenticity . To feel a part of and be seen or heard for who we truly are. Perhaps this is something we did not experience growing up or do not experience at home, in the workplace or amongst our peers even still .

We will discuss the importance of cultivating communities and how to create authentic connections with ourselves and others. Practicing skills for connection, conscious communication and a deep sense of belonging . Allowing parts of ourselves to be seen , heard and validated. We will participate in playful activities, engage in insightful conversations and learn tools to take home and support our relationships with self and others. You will be guided into a deeper sense of awareness, curiosity and connection. ”

Deepening your intuition and reconnecting with your body’s wisdom

“Who were you before the world told you who to be ? In a world driven by data, logic, and analysis, the role of intuition in decision-making often takes a backseat.

Intuition, our inner voice, has the potential to guide us towards making choices that align with our authentic selves , leading to fulfilling outcomes. It is a deep-seated wisdom that arises from our subconscious mind and draws upon our past experiences, emotions, and innate wisdom. Allowing these to be the lighthouse guiding us safely to shore but to no longer be the captain steering the ship.

We will practice discernment and rebuild a relationship to follow our instincts for true wisdom to manifest itself. We have just become so disconnected from this . Bombarded with distractions , other people’s opinions, fear and control.

Our intuition often manifests through physical sensations and emotions. Paying attention to these cues can enhance our ability to trust our inner wisdom. Tuning into our physical and emotional responses to harness the power of our intuition. By integrating intuition and logic, we create a holistic decision-making process that considers both internal wisdom and external information

By honoring our intuition, cultivating self-awareness, and listening to our inner wisdom, we tap into a deep source of knowledge that surpasses conventional thinking. As we learn to trust our intuition, we gain confidence in our decision-making abilities and forge a path that resonates with our true selves

Cyclical Beings in a Linear world ; Rewilding and reawakening the 4 seasons of your female experience

“Your cycle is the natural inner creative life force that connects you with all of creation. Learning to honor your body and understand the wisdom it shares as we cycle through our phases like the moon. Healing and tuning back into the wisdom of the womb . You will leave feeling informed and empowered to start honoring your body and its cycles despite the confinements of living in a linear world.

We will gain a deeper understanding of how the 4 seasons of the earth connect to the 4 seasons of hormonal shifts. We will learn the importance of supporting our body and emotions during each season. If you want to regain you feminine force, this is for you. If you wish to rewild yourself and balance your hormones naturally, this is for you ! If you’re curious about the effects of birth control and how detoxing your body from it can bring back clarity, ambition. libido and life fore, this is for you! If you have been misdiagnosed or are managing Endo, anxiety, depression, pmdd or no longer have a womb this is for you ! If you are raising a daughter, were born with a womb or in a relationship with a female, this is for you !”

“You are invited to explore the depths of your being through the language of the body. Drawing inspiration from contemporary dance, we will delve into the realms of fluidity, emotionality, and musicality, allowing movement to be the expression of our innermost selves.
Participants will be guided to move according to their body’s intuition and emotion, granting them the freedom to explore and express without judgment. Through this exploration, we aim to deepen the connection between mind and body, fostering a greater sense of self-awareness and authenticity.
Come for a transformative experience where movement becomes a tool for self-discovery and expression. No prior dance experience is necessary, only an open heart and a willingness to move in ways that feel true to you. Let your body lead the way as we journey together into the depths of our being through movement and self-expression.”
