SUNSET YOGA & GONG BATH
with Nicole Nichols & Alisha Nissenfeld           Tuesday, June 5      5:45-7:15pm

This special class taught by Nicole Nichols features chanting, meditation, and a slow-flow vinyasa practice, culminating in a 20-minute extended savasana with a gong bath played live by Alisha Nissenfeld.

Of all the instruments used in sound healing, the Gong is perhaps the most powerful, and the most mysterious. Gong Meditations, also called Gong Baths, are deeply nourishing and restorative. The body and mind are able to relax and surrender to the healing energies of the Gong, allowing students to experience deep healing on all levels of being as vibrations pass over and through them–leaving them feeling balanced, peaceful, and light. Aaahhh…

Regular class pricing applies ($16 to drop in, or one class from your package). We recommend that you reserve your spot in advance.

FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT: AJNA & SAHASRARA CHAKRAS
with Nicole Nichols                                               Saturday, June 9      2:00-4:30pm

Our journey reaches its final destination at the top of the energy channel–the third eye and crown chakras, associated with our spiritual side and our relationship with our true self and the universe.

Ajna Chakra, located in the deep geometric center of the head, is associated with the element light, and the act of seeing. The third eye is the internal witness to imagination, inner vision, clairvoyance, intuition, dreams and psychic abilities. Here we enter a deeply internal state where we are seeing inside ourselves, inside our own mind. Seeing is a process of pattern recognition–to re-cognize, to know again, to begin to see the larger picture and where we fit in, and also to perceive the one-ness of being.

Sahasrara, at the crown, is the final door to consciousness, symbolized by a thousand petaled lotus flower. Here the element is the element of thought. Consciousness is beyond space and time, and is the guidance behind all that we see and do. Some say that this chakra is opened up to Heaven on the crown of the head, while other diagrams depict it as a downward facing lotus, whose thousand petals contain the nectar of consciousness which drops into the mind and body through the chakras, bringing illumination and enlightenment to our awareness.

Join Nicole Nichols for the final installment of the Chakra series as we wrap up our journey with theory, asana, pranayama and meditation.
Participation in the previous workshops is not required–all are welcome! $40
