Unplug and Plug In
Limited Capacity seats available

How often do we find ourselves desperately trying to "plug in" to the external sources of power in our life? It's so easy to rely on and base our sense of self on our relationships, our job and all the impermanent material aspects of our life. In this meditation, unplug from the outside world and plug into that limitless source of power that exists within you. Tap into your internal wholeness and be reminded of just how enough you are. There will be a short guided intro into this meditation followed by a silent mantra meditation. Basic instruction on the mantra technique will be provided.

So often we try to think our way into creative solutions and into the answers that we yearn for to guide us through life.

In this meditation you will be guided to activate that inner intelligence coded with in you and then, using a mantra technique, meditate in silence to slip past the awareness of the mind and give the wisdom within space to be revealed.

A Ritual to Ring In the Summer Solstice
Limited Capacity filling up

The summer solstice is upon us! This is a time ripe for celebrating the fullness of life, and for inviting fire into our lives and burn away all that we have outgrown and all that no longer serves us. This proverbial 'burning away' is a purification of the body and mind. The yoga sutras describe this energetic cleansing as Saucha, revealing our true joyful nature—the Self at its most radiant core. Join Andrea for this special summer solstice ritual to honor the life-giving Sun and the spiritual fire within each and every one of us. Much like the brightest star in our solar system, we too create life with our own light. Bring a notebook and something to sit on, and wear comfortable clothes.

Radiant Heart Breathwork
Limited Capacity seats available

Breathwork is an active meditation technique that uses the breath to detox the emotional body. The experience moves stuck emotional energy and facilitates release of strong emotions like anger, fear and sadness. It leaves you feeling softer, open and less burdened.

Breathwork can change emotional default settings, lifetime patterns of depression, anxiety and addiction, connect you to your intuition, help you access your creativity and open your heart to increased gratitude and self-love. It is a self-healing practice that can help you to stay grounded, stay in your heart and stay present. Group Breathwork is part catharsis, part socially sanctioned adult temper tantrum, part community building and part psychedelic experience.

The first part of the class will be seated in a circle, opening the work and setting an intention for the group. You will lie down for about 35 minutes of robust, active Breathwork followed by about 10 minutes of rest. I will use essential oils to get your energy centers moving, burn sacred plants to transform your emotional release, and coach you through the experience with love-all set to a great soundtrack. We will return to sitting in the circle after the Breathwork to get grounded and close the work.

Conversations With the Self
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

The practice of journaling or free-writing is an exercise in presence and discipline, much like maintaining a yoga or meditation practice. Your commitment to one helps to fuel the other and vice versa. By developing a practice to sit with yourself daily and release thoughts to paper, you can more readily adopt a bird's eye view and assess where you've been stuck, noticing those repeating habits or patterns that block you from progress. Journaling brings clarity, which leads us to presence and inner peace. Journaling can help us to navigate life's challenges, by finding strength and resolve in honing and sharpening the authentic voice. Join us in this nurturing of the inner self, a glimpse at where you're at and where you're headed, in this introspective session that invites pure stream of consciousness to flow through you like water. Whether you've got a daily journaling practice or not, you'll benefit from these insightful techniques to help make free-writing part of your regular routine.

Intention In Action: Committing to Commitment
Limited Capacity filling up

We talk a lot about setting intentions in yoga class, but what does that really mean? Discover how to activate your intentions within the ritual of your yoga practice with clarity, purpose and commitment. By identifying the core of your values you can align with your highest dreams, goals and ideals, and release yourself from that which no longer serves you. An intention is the starting point of a dream; what makes the unconscious conscious. It is the creative power that fulfills our heart's desires, be it for career or relationships, money or material things, personal or spiritual ascension. In essence, an intention is an epiphany in action; a little steppingstone that guides us like a compass toward our highest potential. If you're ready to discover how to put your intentions into practice, then this workshop is for you.

Invoking the Wisdom Within
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

So often we try to think our way into creative solutions and into the answers that we yearn for to guide us through life. Unfortunately, the level of awareness that produced the question is not the same level of awareness that houses the most elevated answer. In this meditation you will be guided to activate that inner intelligence coded with in you and then, using a mantra technique, meditate in silence to slip past the awareness of the mind and give the wisdom within space to be revealed.

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

By prioritizing self-care, we begin to realize there is an abundance of energy from which to draw upon, that brings our best Self forward. In order to be of service to others and avoid burnout and resentment, we must also extend that same kindness to ourselves. Discover why putting on your own oxygen mask first is a selfless, revolutionary act, and the ways in which others will benefit from your own practice of loving-kindness. This workshop provides a safe space for a deep dive into the emotions and triggers that might normally be hidden from view, as we uncover the ways in which we are unkind to ourselves. This session will include discussion, writing exercises and finish with a Metta meditation.

Radiant Heart Breathwork
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Breathwork is an active meditation technique that uses the breath to detox the emotional body. The experience moves stuck emotional energy and facilitates release of strong emotions like anger, fear and sadness. It leaves you feeling softer, open and less burdened.

Breathwork can change emotional default settings, lifetime patterns of depression, anxiety and addiction, connect you to your intuition, help you access your creativity and open your heart to increased gratitude and self-love. It is a self-healing practice that can help you to stay grounded, stay in your heart and stay present. Group Breathwork is part catharsis, part socially sanctioned adult temper tantrum, part community building and part psychedelic experience.

The first part of the class will be seated in a circle, opening the work and setting an intention for the group. You will lie down for about 35 minutes of robust, active Breathwork followed by about 10 minutes of rest. I will use essential oils to get your energy centers moving, burn sacred plants to transform your emotional release, and coach you through the experience with love-all set to a great soundtrack. We will return to sitting in the circle after the Breathwork to get grounded and close the work.

Astrology & Asana: Yoga by the Stars
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Our yoga practices have taught us that our bodies are always shape shifting and changing form. In astrology, the zodiac wheel progresses much in the same way: from the 'birth' of Aries to the 'death' of Pisces, we too are experiencing a continuous life cycle. By learning to ebb and flow with the traits of each astrological season, we can discover how to transmute the qualities of the zodiac into tangible form. Everyone has some inherent qualities of all twelve signs of the zodiac within them, and we are all much more than just our Sun signs. In this session, we'll do a short yoga sequence by the stars and work with the current planetary transits of the day, and also discuss the larger, bigger trends in cosmic alignment and how that affects us on the path of personal growth. If you're interested in how you can incorporate astrological themes into your mindfulness practices, then this workshop is for you.
