NEW MOON MEDITATION
Fridays: August 30th, September 27th, October 25th. 7 – 8pm
with Meghan Mitchell
The New Moon is time of new beginnings and setting intentions. This is the time to plant the seeds of our desires, wishes, dreams and intentions so they grow and manifest. Manifesting is an innate super-power we all have. Combine that power with intense energies of the the new moon, it becomes one of the most magical times to manifest!
During this class, you will be guided through breath work that focuses on calming the mind. Through meditation we’ll align ourselves with our Higher Self, the Universe, to our Source, and from that centered place, call to us that which we desire. You will get clear about the things you want to create and bring into your life. With this meditation and the power of the New Moon you are virtually guaranteed results!
After meditating, we will create lists of our intentions for the new moon. The class will end with creation of an affirmation to focus on sealing in and bolstering our intentions. This time of intense power of creativity and manifestation begs you to become the architect of your dreams and desires, to build the vision of what is to come!

Reiki I Training
September 7th & 8th. Sat. 12:30 – 4:30pm AND Sun. 2:30 – 5:30pm
with Lori Matyjas, RN, MS, Usui/Holy Fire® III Reiki Master/Teacher
Reiki (ray-key), in Japanese, literally translates to “Universal Life Energy.” Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that channels energy into an individual by means of touch, to activate the natural healing process of the body and restore physical, emotional and spiritual well being to oneself and others. Students receive the ability to channel Reiki energy via the Reiki Master through an attunement process where a transfer of energy takes place. After training, the Reiki students can readily and safely apply Reiki to others and to themselves to manage stress and promote healing.
What will be covered:
- Reiki ideals and healing principles.
- The standard Reiki session hand positions.
- Giving a complete Reiki session for self and others.
- Japanese Reiki Techniques, as taught by Usui Sensei including: Gassho meditation, Reiji-ho, (developing your intuition) Byosen Scanning (detecting where Reiki is needed), Gyoshi ho (sending Reiki with the eyes), and Kenyoku (dry bathing or clearing one’s energy field).

Saturday, September 14th, 12:30 – 3:30pm with Jamie Wright
A comprehensive and powerful practice, with some challenge and a deeper experience than the typical “short” class. It’ll go by quickly, but we won’t need to skimp on anything.
Our time will begin with some introspection, pranayama and a slow steady warming, followed by some energetic movement and standing work. Once we’re nice and warm it will be time for some deeper exploration of strength, balance and flexibility. Every part of our bodies will be addressed, including a serious visit to our core. We’ll end with a long cool down and extended Savasana.

The Roll Model® Therapy Balls provide targeted self-massage trigger point therapy by using specially designed high grip rubber massage balls and focused movement routines to help penetrate through layers of skin and muscle to massage deeply into your high tension areas. The balls stimulate the nerves that provide positional feedback to your brain; consequently, you can sense whether you are in or out of alignment. You are able to make better choices about your position in space, as it relates to your activities.
YOGA ATTUNEMENT with LIVE CLASSICAL GUITAR
Saturdays: October 5th and November 2nd, 4-5:30pm
with Tony DiPiano and Sybil Merriman
To attune is to bring into harmony, or to make aware or responsive. In this class we will explore unwinding movements to encourage physical openings, particularly in areas where we tend to hold tension or get stuck in holding patterns. The movements are performed going with, rather than against, gravity, for a gentle approach. In this practice, we also explore the power of stillness, cultivating sensory awareness, and giving the body and mind time to absorb and integrate the music and the movements.
Studies have shown that listening to classical music has both mental and physical benefits, from pain management to improved sleep quality. Listen to the relaxing and beautiful guitar while gently coaxing your body into more efficient patterns of movement, and emerge feeling refreshed, renewed, and harmonious in body, mind, and spirit.
YAMUNA BODY ROLLING
Saturday, October 26th, 1-3pm with Sharon Sklar
Yamuna Body Rolling is essentially self-massage. With balls of various sizes and firmness, we used our body weight and small movements to release tension from our necks, backs, leg muscles and more. You will notice an immediate difference in alignment, feel looser and freer in your body, and improve mobility and flexibility.
