Winter Solstice Chanting of the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra

Donation-based chanting of the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra in honor of the Winter Solstice. This mantra is evocative of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being and rejuvenation. As we turn inwards for the winter, it offers protection on the path towards transformational awareness and freedom.

We will begin with a brief discussion of the origin and meaning of the mantra, then after 108 rounds chanted together we will sit for 20 minutes of meditation before Savasana. Dress cozy, and feel free to bring a journal and pen.

Lakshmi and the Churning of the Ocean

Lakshmi and the Churning of the Ocean

  • Ananda Health and Wellness Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

What if we didn’t shy away from the parts of ourselves we think are bad, or that we don’t know what to do with? When we fragment ourselves and hide specific pieces we hinder our own potential: to refine our mind, to live the life we believe in, to strengthen and share our gifts and talents. 

This myth exemplifies the need to re-member all of ourselves and maintain a consistent practice of exploration, responsibility, and honesty to be able to live our fullest life. It reminds us there is no evil inside, only undirected energy. It shows us the path towards courage and acceptance for all that life will inevitably bring. 

This workshop includes an hour of story-telling and discussion, followed by a two-hour slowly paced asana class intended to help you find a meditative flow through breath, movement, and especially stillness.

Early bird pricing is $30. Early bird pricing lasts through October 5, 2018. Afterwards and day of the event the cost is $40.


Three in-person CECs are available for Yoga Alliance. Let Meghan know before the training if interested.

The mantra is a call for the light of knowledge and awareness, meant to be done at these times of literal and metaphorical shift. As night transitions to day, summer to fall, come with any intention of internal transition and let your voice be the offering to bring it to life.

Standing Series and Ayurvedic Walking Massage with Tillie
Feb

9:00 AM09:00

Standing Series and Ayurvedic Walking Massage with Tillie

Tantric Alignment Standing Series: Approximately forty minutes long this series is great for alignment and body sensing. Poses are held for 1 minute to give time to feel, soften, re-align and center. This series is meant to have each student sense their own self, sense their own structure and to work only the necessary muscles needed for each asana. The alignment series will culture the health of the spine, especially the sacrum as well as building bone density to offer each student more than just a stretch. This series practiced over time will help realign the body to its natural position using the bodies proprioceptors as they continually readapt to the information given throughout this asana series. Each pose is held long enough to allow each student to become comfortable there to allow tension and stress in the body to fade away through the softening of the mind.

Ayurvedic Walking Massage: The ayurvedic walking massage targets the prana and subtle energy system in the body. Prana is the primordial life force of each person; if the prana system is imbalanced, it can create psychological, emotional and physical inefficiencies in a person. These imbalances can develop into health problems as well as mental suffering in one’s life. This massage helps to balance the prana system by activating and stimulating nadi/ meridian points through the body. The word “Nadi” is literally translated as “river” in sanskrit. These rivers run from the surface of the skin down into the deeper tissues of the body, these are channels in which prana flows. There are thousands of nadi pathways that run through the body. To activate these points we will walk or press certain parts of the body using your own body weight placing gentle yet effective pressure on each muscle group. This massage also uses acupressure on the hands and feet to stimulate healthy responses in specific organs. In this workshop we will both be giving and receiving!
