Complete Practice with Cilla and Noah
Sunday, March 24th, 8-10:30am
A longer, intentional practice that includes Asana, Pranayama and Mantra meditation with Priscilla and Noah.
Join us for a two and a half hour complete practice incorporating the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of yoga. Class begins w/ grounding mantra and intention setting. As we move through a Hatha flow, we pay careful attention to our engagement, alignment and breath. Postures are held for longer and the class is structured with a building affect, each posture preparing us for something a little bit deeper or more challenging in the practice. Students are encouraged to use their own discernment whether they stay with the foundational variation of a posture or decide that they are ready to push past their comfort zone and challenge themselves by trying advanced asana postures. We will practice a strong standing series to build heat, strength and stabilty before winding down the practice with longer held postures to release stored tension and prepare for mantra meditation. Those of us who practice regularly know that an hour can go by so quickly, when we take the time and care to prepare our body and mind w/ this longer style class we are able to go deeper in our meditation practice.
Some experience preferred but modifications are offered for those new to the practice. Can be physically and mentally challenging for some, but all levels are encouraged, especially those who wish to deepen their practice, not only of the physical body, but of the more subtle aspects of the breath and mind.
$25 each, $40 for 2 people

Restorative, Yoga Nidra and Sound Bath w/ Nancy
Sunday, April 7th, 3-5pm
Taught by Nancy Borg, Experienced Yoga Teacher, Certified in Yin and Restorative Yoga, Reiki level II practitioner and Certified Tibetan Healing Bowl practitioner.
The first hour of class will be Restorative Yoga, using bolsters, blankets, blocks and straps, accompanied by gentle assists, reiki and essential oils, chosen to help you relax, release and prepare for Shavasana and Yoga Nidra.
Yoga Nidra or "Yogic Sleep" is a profound introspective and transformative practice. This ancient technique requires little of the practitioner, just the intention to stay awake, listen to the guide and be open to whatever occurs. It is a relaxation system that guides you to a more expanded state of consciousness by using a series of body, breath, visualization and awareness techniques. Through the slowing of brain activity and deep relaxation of the physical body, we can naturally filter parts of the mind. When our brain wave states are similar to those in sleep, we disengage from our thoughts and can more easily observe them (as opposed to believe or be consumed by them). In this process we may have profound realizations and overcome intense emotions such as fear, anger or sadness. It allows us to get out of our own way and experience our true nature.
At the end of Yoga Nidra, we will remain in Shavasana and go even deeper with sound bath meditation. Tibetan Healing bowls move us into a meditative and peaceful state, resulting in clarity of the mind and intuition. The sound synchronizes brain waves and enhances awareness of the mind body connection.

Candlelight Yin: Neck, Shoulders, and Upperback
Thursday, April 11th 7:15-8:30pm
Join Priscilla for a candlelight Yin class focusing on the Upper Back, Neck, Shoulders and Spine.
Yin Yoga is a unique style of asana where we are encouraged to find our individual edge of sensation and stay with this edge in stillness for several minutes. It's also accessible and teaches us to be calm, still and introspective. We can use props to support us and sharpen our discernment while choosing a variation that works our individual edge. The practice is different because it targets our connective tissue, and promotes a strengthening and lengthening of this complex network. There are so many physiological benefits, but the beauty of Yin Yoga lies in the subtle practice of self-study, meditation, reflection and application of yoga philosophy. It can be a great tool to allow us to feel better in our bodies but also to experience a connection between mind, body, and spirit. When we overcome the mind we can better connect to our true nature: that part of us that is filled with unconditional love and compassion.

Our Yoga teacher Raghunath is back in Vermont and we are celebrating with an evening of Krishna Kirtan! Donations to support Supersoul Farm.
Suggested donation - $20 (sliding scale available, talk/email with Noah) We understand that everyone has a finance limit, that being said, Bhakti yoga is based on seva - selfless giving. Now on one hand, we want to continue to provide donation based events for all, on the other we have bills just like everyone else. We wouldn’t be teaching people yoga if we were encouraging people to take without offering something in return. I don’t mean to offend anyone and I apologize if I do. - Noah

Kirk Jones, MS, Master Sound Healer, Evolvlove Sound Therapy
Kirk was powerfully drawn to singing bowls 18 years ago, attracted to the power and beauty of the rich, ancient tones. He then saw how singing bowls resonated with and elevated his own spiritual and healing journeys, so he decided to learn how to apply this to his own life and to help others. Since then he has assisted over 1500 people on their own healing journeys, bringing great joy, relaxation, pain relief, emotional release, spiritual upliftment, and clarity, while ameliorating a host of dis-eases and dis-orders. He is honored to be able to use and share this sacred gift.
