- Serenity Meditation
Mondays Nov 10-22, 11am-12pm
$99 + gst
Serenity Meditation uses breathing and visualization techniques that calm and stabilize the mind. On a daily basis we have so many
thoughts, ideas, and emotions that we can feel overwhelmed and
distracted. Meditation helps us plumb beyond these thoughts to our inherently pure, peaceful mind. Through serenity meditation we can move from a distracted, dissatisfied state to one of total peace.
In this session we will do seated meditation. All levels are welcome.
We’ll be sitting on cushions, bolsters, or chairs–whatever is most
comfortable. The beautiful thing about meditation is that it can be
done at any age, anytime, anywhere.
By changing our mental habits, our actions and lives change, too. All
it takes is focus and desire to realize the peace that exists within
you. Come take this inner journey…

- Yog-osophy: Beyond Resolutions
Saturday Dec 6, 1-4pm
Connect to Your Life Intentions!
Resolutions tend not to stick because we try to make sweeping changes and eventually lose our footing on this often unfamiliar terrain of transformation. Taking action without a sense of purpose, of connecting to that which is our deepest intention in Life, is akin to driving a car at night with no headlights, moon, or streetlamps to guide us.
Yoga philosophy offers a process of cultivating sankalpa (san-cul-pah) as a way to fully engage with Life. A sankalpa is a personal vow or commitment that teaches you to tune in to the deepest Truth of who you are, and lends a sense of direction on the winding path of Life by channeling your energy into setting sustainable specific intentions to help align your moment-to-moment choices with your heartfelt desires.
This rejuvenating Yin/Yang flow practice weaves pranayama, meditation, yoga nidra, journaling, and yoga philosophy to help connect you to your innermost vision for your Life. What is your life vision that is seeking to emerge from within you?
A perfect way to set intention for the New Year!
(please bring a journal and pen)
