Morning Raga Meditation
Limited Capacity seats available

The ragas of North India have a powerful application for meditation, as they clear the mind of the “daily noise” and create the optimal setting for deep practice. When they are performed at the proper time of day, their effect is amplified. We will begin this class with a meditation on the sound of the tanpura, and sing together the basic phrases of a morning raga. Tomek will then perform a full expression of this raga on sitar. The class will end in silent meditation.

Deep Hip Opening Yoga and Singing Bowl Session with Nicole Sansone
Limited Capacity full

The psoas muscle, also referred to as your “fight or flight muscle” is responsible for stabilizing the body. This muscle, deep in the center of the body, attaches the lower lumbar vertebrae to the pelvis and legs -structurally connecting the upper and lower body. This is where most people unconsciously hold stress. This class gives you a effective way to relieve lower back pain, neck, shoulder pain, general tension, and emotional anxiety, encouraging the body to return back to it's natural state of balance.The class will start with a series of simple yet long held yoga postures aimed at warming up the psoas muscle. The second part of the practice, you will be lead on a journey of shaking out and releasing trapped energies from deep within these primal places while being bathed in the warm healing tones of the Tibetan singing bowls lead by Kathy Hamer. At times throughout the practice and during shavasana, (rest) the singing bowls may be placed on the body or at the head with the intention to heal, align, and gently move stuck energy out creating space within for deeper healing.  The bowls will be filled with warm water infused with the high vibration essential oil blend “HEAL”.

Radical Healing
Limited Capacity filling up

Healing happens when we begin to mend the separation in our consciousness between the mind, body and spirit. Understanding this interdependency can radically shift the way we “see” the body, empowering us to support our own health and wellness in a more integrated- and therefore holistic-way. Through yoga, we can explore the mind/body connection, the impact our emotional life has on our health, how to “read” or map the body symbolically, and how to interpret these physiological/emotional messages as spiritual guidance meant to open us to love, acceptance and to appreciate the interconnection that binds us all as one. Join Seane for this unique vinyasa flow master class for all levels to invite radical healing into whatever area of your mind/body needs it most.

Find Your Voice, Free Your Spirit! - A Chant Workshop
Limited Capacity seats available

Join Kirtan Soul Revival for an afternoon of chanting, harmonizing, improvising and finding your true voice.  In this workshop we will explore ways to open our voices using breath and vocal techniques - and learn to love the sound that comes from our bodies. Breathing and vocalizing are a way to relate to the divine and to the world around us through our hearts and our bodies. Through chanting, we tune our voices and hearts to that which is sacred, creating vibrations that activate and awaken our connection to the Divine.  Through singing in harmony, we practice balancing giving and receiving; expressing individuality and connecting fully in community.  Each of us has a unique voice to contribute and when we free our own voices, we inspire others to do the same. There will be opportunity to sing all together, and in small groups. No intimidation here - risks are encouraged and mistakes help us all learn. Come chant together and support each other in being whole and free - in singing and in life!

Singing Bowl Group Meditation; Stillness in the Sound of Silence
Limited Capacity seats available

Fresh from the waves of a 10 day silent retreat, Certified Singing Bowl teacher, practitioner and artist Katherine Hamer would love to share the delicious stillness of SILENCE with a silent singing bowl sound healing meditation. Created especially for Ahimsa, attendees to this class are asked to bring their yoga mat, comfy clothes and their disciplined practice of observing silence as they enter and leave the meditation room. Singing Bowls are a liquid language, able to plum to the depths of the cellular level and beyond. By observing silence and removing chatter, the space for deeper appreciation for the nuisances of subtle sound and vibration is created as well a more profound experience of going within. During the meditation, singing bowls filled with warm water and infused with essential oils are placed on attendees bodies to promote deeper healing and release. Katherine will also honor this silence before and after the class. Attendees to this meditation will take home bath salts infused with special oils to further support the healing release brought forward in class.

Charging Practice for Psychic Energy
Limited Capacity seats available

An expertly sequenced Dharma Yoga practice for the body, mind and soul designed to exercise, rejuvenate and energize the entire system. Divine knowledge will purify the mind by removing doubts. This instantly triggers inner peace and spiritual bliss, and this is the gradual beginning of the end of pain and delusion. Thus, one gets lots of enthusiasm to deal with life. Amazing postures designed to elevate the state of consciousness and to promote radiant health and energy will be practiced. Divine breath control will gradually purify the nerves and bring Prana and Apana (Kundalini) up spine and to the head, resulting in Divine Perception. By controlling the breath, the mind also will be controlled. Maha Mantras (sacred sounds) affect the body, mind and touch the soul, purify the intellect, trigger spiritual bliss and stimulate the Chakras. During Meditation in Shavasana, body and material sensation will gradually disappear and even the mind will be set into silence. “There is no other thing in this world that would please me more than to, with all my love, share this Divine Knowledge with you.” (Sri Dharma Mittra) please me more than to, with all my love, share this Divine Knowledge with you.” (Sri Dharma Mittra)ould please me more than to, with all my love, share this Divine Knowledge with you.” (Sri Dharma Mittra)

It is estimated that a human being has an average of 12- 60,000 thoughts a day, and 80% of thoughts are typically negative (according to National Science Foundation).

We see how these substances and actions also numb certain undesirables feelings (depression, shyness, disappointment.)  Using the brilliance of Ayurvedic and Yoga, we can gain a better compassionate understand why we get attracted to things such as drugs, sex, shopping, information and drama. Birthed in Woodstock, Shakti Yoga is a colorful and dynamic style that empowers practitioners to use their practice to achieve optimal creativity, happiness, and courage. We learn to carve out a plan of action with a calming and reassuring philosophy By, using inspired and challenging yoga asana sequences, sharing the teachings of philosophy, and focusing on breath regulation, we gain inner power to make the changes we want to see in our world. If you’re looking for a motivating class to make big and necessary changes, this is the right session for you.

Accepting and riding the ebb and flow of life is one of the great tools we learn as yoga practitioners that goes beyond our sticky mats. In this class we will begin with a delicious and grounding vinyasa flow to get our breath connected to our bodies and our minds and enable us to “drop in” to the moment, followed by a 30-minute yoga nidra session. The vinyasa portion of the class will help you get to a place where you can lay and be completely still for your nidra practice. Yoga nidra literally translates as the yoga of sleep, but it is different than nap time! In yoga nidra, you will practice conscious sleep, which means you will be awake in a deep state of relaxation.The practice moves us from our external layer (annamaya-kosha) to our deepest internal layer (anandamaya-kosha). Yoga nidra helps revive, heal and re-establish our consciousness and contributes to our hard work as yogis to become our highest selves.

Intuition & The Art of Trusting Life - A Class Dedicated to the Sage Vasistha
Limited Capacity seats available

If you have even a little love for the invigorating, heart-opening, sweat-making possibilities inherent in Vasisthasana (side plank pose), come listen to the tale of the sage Vasistha while we explore many of the pose's iterations in this intermediate-to-advanced-level Vinyasa Flow class. Sometimes side plank is a beautiful transition shape, other times it's a pinnacle pose. Metaphysically, it invokes the great Vedic seer and spiritual hero Vasistha whose spiritual mastery enabled him  to lead with legendary peace, patience, and intuitive knowing. You will be given enough space within the parameters of the poses to explore your own shapes, angles and interesting lines of tension. We will be utterly competition-less at the same time that we flirt with our own bodily thresholds in order to sharpen our capacity for inner clarity and absolute self trust. Expect dharma, story, song, sweat, play, modifications, intensifications, creative, side-to-side flowing as well as breaks and recovery for wrists and shoulders.

She takes joy in bringing students out of the realm of fear and into the realm of adventure, often turning things upside down and inviting practitioners out of their comfort zones. Her classes can get downright riotous as students reach new heights in their physical practice and cheer each other on, but they're always grounded in her knowledge of subtler alignment points and in the belief that no single posture really matters more than another. She believes in asana as a celebratory art and in yoga as a means to liberation. Her greatest goal is to guide students as they free themselves of... Read More →

Steering The Chariot: Moving from achievement to intention
Limited Capacity seats available

In the short time we have together, this class promises to inspire body, mind, and heart. Using our voices through mantra, our bodies with smart, challenging yoga sequences that deepen our connection to movement, and our hearts by setting our intention to deepen our understanding of what it means to be a human being, we will travel toward integration. The instructions given in this class are meant to raise awareness and clear away misinformation regarding alignment, beliefs, and effort. Hoping to shed light on the skill required to make choices, we will build our relationship to our movement, our mind, and to each other, slowly, one breath at a time.
Be prepared to sweat!
