Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is a method of guided relaxation that has a profound effect on the body, mind, and emotions. During the practice, you will lie in a comfortable position where you can remain awake and relaxed. You will be guided through various stages of deeper relaxation as you focus your attention inward.

During Yoga Nidra, you will enter the state between wakefulness and dreaming - a state which we usually only experience as we nod off to sleep. The effect on the mind can be very powerful, because as the mind becomes more relaxed, it also becomes more receptive.

This practice can aid in memory retention, reduce stress, and enhance both your intuition and creativity. It can help you to solve problems, rejuvenate your body and mind, and enhance and balance your energy.

Chanting for Inner Balance

Chant is an ancient tool used across cultures to calm the mind and attune the body to a more supportive and harmonious vibrational frequency. Sanskrit, the mother tongue of Greek and Latin, has survived over 8,000 years because it is so adept at positively influencing the energetic pathways of the body. No prior singing or chant experience is required. Chants are taught call and response in the ancient way with words and translations provided. Persons of all faiths and beliefs are welcomed in celebrating nature's universal principles and archetypes through community and song.

Core Breath Experiential Workshop

2:00 PM14:00

Core Breath Experiential Workshop

Within the demands of everyday life, it is easy to feel disconnected from our core vitality and a sense of groundedness. We are complex physical, emotional and energetic beings, and within us are molecules of emotion that flow and sometimes gather to form blockages. These blockages can lead to chronic tension, physical pain and mental anxiety that may also trigger patterns of behavior and thinking. Core Breath is an experiential workshop that weaves the integration of mindful breath awareness and intention within a process of discovering what may be root causes within patterns of body and mind.

Grounded in the Four Foundations Mindfulness, Mindfulness of Body, Sensation, Thoughts, and Internal Awareness, participants will be guided through different ways of using their breath to tap into the subtle body of emotions, energy, contraction and expansion. In the workshop, we will look into the anatomy of the body, and direct breath to help better articulate expression and voice. Elements of yoga, principles of Butoh, Core Energetics, and intentional improvisations will be woven through the workshop experience. Together, we will mine aspects of the human experience through movement, stillness, and meditation as a mode of reflection into deeper consciousness and inner vibrancy.

Monthly practice, Saturdays, 9/15, 10,13, 11/10, 12/8

Monthly Extended Practice

2:00 PM14:00

Monthly Extended Practice

The physical postures of yoga, known as asana, are powerful and centering, creating many benefits to those who practice regularly in both mind and body. But did you know they are only 1/8th of the story? There are many more tools available that offer profound results to those who wish to learn them. Come experience and deepen your understanding of the other 7 limbs of yoga through our new extended practices!

Class will involve our typical 75 minutes of asana, followed by 45 minutes of pranayama (breath work), mantra practice, and prompts for self-reflection and meditation. Additionally, excerpts from the yoga sutras, an ancient text that contains mystical and practical wisdom on yoga's 8 limbs, may be incorporated to deepen self-reflection and intention for practice. This class offers the opportunity to go beyond asana and launch oneself into a deeper relationship with the body, breath, mind, and the higher self.

November Sound Bath

Zia Sunseri will perform a sound-ceremony-experience: a unique "soundbath": a live improvised concert of ambient sound vibrations that shift the listener’s body and consciousness into deep relaxation and restorative biological states, offering a mini-retreat from the busy outside world. Many people attend soundbaths to reduce the effects of stress and clear tension or blockages in the mind/body/emotions/spirit, in order to feel cleansed and replenished. Zia's soundbaths currently include crystal bowls and vocal toning, and sometimes additionally: gentle and potent sea-drums, gongs, rattles, or other ambient instruments, to take you into a meditative state to help creative and pleasurable experiences open up, and fundamentally, to help anxiety and stress fade and our bodies' natural restorative functions to flourish.

This will be a very special, intentional near-the FULL MOON ceremonial sound-experience: With the intention of helping you bring to fruition those things your heart desires to manifest, and un-blocking the path within you. A unique soundbath for restorative healing of mind, body, and spirit, performed by Zia Sunseri, MA, LMFTA, ATP, ASAT, is a Licensed Psychotherapist, Art Therapist, & Soundhealer.  For more info about Zia, visit: www.ziasunseri.com

Stay Healthy with Yoga and Ayurveda: Autumn

Stay Healthy with Yoga and Ayurveda: Autumn

Yoga and Ayurveda are ancient sciences of wellness. Yoga focuses on physical exercise, breath and meditation, while Ayurveda focuses on nutrition and daily routines to maintain health and vitality. Practiced together, they help balance our energy, improve strength and flexibility and maintain a focused and calm mind. Practicing Ayurveda and Yoga regularly increases our body awareness and deepens our connection to the seasons and our place on Earth.

With each passing season, we experience changes marked by the winter and summer solstices and the vernal and autumnal equinoxes. Here in Puget Sound, the bright days of October with their bold display of gold and red leaves give way to darker, shorter days. The rains become more frequent and longer. Although autumn is a beautiful time of year, many people catch colds and flues, or simply feel depleted. We can maintain wellness throughout autumn by making simple changes to our daily routines, diet and Yoga practice.

In this workshop you will:

  • Learn the basics about Ayurveda including an introduction to the doshas, six tastes and five elements
  • Adjust your eating habits while enjoying the abundance of the harvest and boosting your immune system.
  • Discover simple daily routines and guidelines for staying healthy.
  • Alter your Yoga practice to maintain warmth and energy as the days become shorter and cooler.
  • Discuss ways you can integrate Ayurveda into your life.
