    Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" — sun/stimulating energy with the "Tha" — moon/calming energy.

    Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening.  Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat.

    Reiki (ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning 'Universal Life Force Energy' and describes the energy found in all of life.  An ancient form of hands on energy healing, Reiki is a skill obtained through an attunement (opening) to bring the power of Universal Life Force Energy through the human chakra system.  The energy then is used to balance the body or an object by bringing it into harmony with the universe once again.

    In Reiki One, you will learn the hand positions for self-healing and for the healing treatment of others.  We will talk about the seven major chakras and the history of the Usui System of Natural Healing.  You will receive your first attunement. We will also have time to practice feeling energy and giving Reiki to each other.

    Please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing, with no jewelry or perfumes.

    All levels. Yoga Nidra means Yogic sleep; a state of conscious deep sleep where we learn to relax consciously. This class is deep relaxation with an inner state of awareness, which has been found to reduce stress, tension and anxiety. It is beneficial for insomnia and to calm symptoms of chronic pain, headaches, depression, high blood pressure, heart disease, autoimmune disease and has been shown to help those in recovery from addiction. Yoga Nidra also helps calm and clear the mind and has potential to provide emotional healing--restoring our body senses and mind to their natural functions. It is said that one hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to four hours of sleep.

    We are delighted to be able to offer a once a month support group that focuses on sharing from the perspective of our soul and higher self. This group will work equally well for those who already have information about chakras and would like further exploration, and for those who are new to these ideas. The purpose of the Chakra Club is to help us find deeper meaning, wholeness, and healing--as we tap into our higher consciousness in sharing our personal experiences and combined wisdom. The chakras connect our minds and bodies with our souls and higher consciousness. As we bring healing to our inner selves, our true soul-selves shine forth; and we increase our ability to create lives that work and are truly fulfilling. (Originally created and offered by Marcia (Phillips) West--Bridges of Unity).

Open studio means you will also bring your own subject matter reference, or feel free to paint from the beautiful scenery around you.  You are welcome to move your chair to the garden to paint! Please note this is a one day session and you must register for each individual session.

    Note:  This class is only for previous students of Sue Abare's watercolor classes.
