  • Workshop - Yoga + Breathwork

    Workshop - Yoga + Breathwork

    Monday, January 20th, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
    Workshop - Yoga + Breathwork

    Join Paula for a unique class that harnesses the fluid movement of Yoga and the healing power of Breathwork in order to connect to yourself.
    There is so much that can get in the way of loving and accepting ourselves deeply and completely. Breathwork is an active meditation technique that uses a simple repetitive breath pattern to purge the body and nervous system of emotional blockages.
    The experience will create a safe space to move and eliminate stuck energy, shed layers of anxiety, feelings of unworthiness, and suppressed fear, rage and sadness. It will leave you feeling more connected within to your heart, spirit and intuition.
    If you’ve been craving a deeper healing experience, more self-love, are feeling stuck, this is most definitely the class for you.
    Please bring a journal, an eye mask (if you have it!) and a pillow. Wear comfortable yoga clothing with layers.
    Cost: $40.00 per person in advance. $45.00 per person day of.

  • New Moon Meditation for Prosperity & Abundance

    New Moon Meditation for Prosperity & Abundance

    Thursday, January 23rd, 5:45pm - 7:15pm
    New Moon Meditation for Prosperity & Abundance

    "Prosperity is a state produced immediately by the mind. When the sun comes out of the clouds, everything is lit. When the mind comes out of duality, prosperity is there."- Yogi Bhajan
    Meditating at the time of the New Moon intensifies our intentions and makes it an ideal time to focus on prosperity (personal and business) and abundance using the energy of the New Moon combined with Kundalini Yoga kriyas and meditations. Prosperity and abundance come in many forms. 
    When one’s internal attitude is out of alignment, it doesn’t matter what that person has or doesn’t have in the material world.  When we connect with an internal attitude of prosperity, we become like a magnet. The abundance of the universe flows to us.
    Our class includes breath work (pranayam), a short yoga set (kriya) for awareness, a prosperity meditation followed by a deep relaxation (savasana) in the celestial sounds and vibrations of two Gongs.

    Cost: PranaShanti Class Card or Drop-in Fee.
