    Yoga, Breath and a Good Night Sleep

    Wednesday, March 4th, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
    Yoga, Breath and a Good Night Sleep

    Do you have trouble sleeping well at night?

    Do you toss and turn and miss out on a sound sleep that you know would do wonders for your body?

    Does your body feel stiff and sore because you are not getting the right amount of sleep and do your muscles feel tired because they work all day long and never get the chance to relax?

    If you answered YES to any of these questions, let Richard guide you through this experiential workshop.

    The focus will be: increasing body flexibility, enhancing the alignment of the spine, and calming the nervous system before going to sleep.

    The yoga postures taught in this course will help reduce the discomfort of sore, tired and aching muscles and provide for a restful night of sleep. The added benefit of these postures is that you can use them in the morning to help energize the body.

    You will also learn what happens to your muscles when you become stressed and how to return to a relaxed state of body and mind.

    Cost: $40.00 per person.

    Full Moon Healing Meditation

    Thursday, March 5th to Friday, March 6th, 5:45pm - 7:15pm
    Full Moon Healing Meditation

    On the full moon, the sun’s radiance is strongest and is reflected both from the earth and from the moon to the earth.The full moon is the time of month where there is the greatest connection between sun and moon.

    The moon relates to the spine left energy channel, ida (yin, contraction, introversion, receptive, inner feminine). The sun relates to spine right energy channel, pingala (yang, expansive, extroversion, projective, inner masculine).

    The sun and moon together in equal parts relates to the spine's central energy channel, sushmana. When we practice at this time we can direct the prana through the sushumna and create a movement of energy for balance and self-healing.

    Join Devinder for this nurturing class which includes an overview of the astrology of the Full Moon, breath work (pranayam), a short yoga set (kriya), a healing meditation and a deep relaxation with the soothing vibration of the Gong.

    Cost: PranaShanti Class Card or Drop-in Fee.

    PranaShanti Community Kirtan

    Friday, March 6th, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
    PranaShanti Community Kirtan
    Meditation doesn't come easy for everyone and that's where kirtan-an ancient participatory music experience-offers another method. Without the work of mentally quieting the mind, the music and chanting of kirtan can carry us effortlessly to a place of quiet, to stillness.

    One of the oldest sacred music traditions of the world, the kirtan call-and-response chanting genre comes to us from India. Using ancient Sanskrit mantras, the kirtan calls upon sacred energies which serve to quiet the mind, remove obstacles, and bring us back to the center of our being.

    Bring your family, kids, friends, parents, and your favorite percussion instruments to play. Herbal tea served. Bring some snacks to share.

    Join the chanting fun!

    Cost: Minimum donation of $5.00 in support of World Spinal Care (http://worldspinecare.com)

    New Moon Intention Setting

    Thursday, March 19th, 5:45pm - 7:15pm
    New Moon Intention Setting
    The New Moon is day one of the moon cycle and is a time to plant new seeds for growth and prosperity. During the New Moon, our glands are at a low ebb, as is our energy.

    Meditating at the time of the new moon intensifies our intentions and makes it an ideal time to focus on positivity, to charge up the mind and body to turn our intentions into reality.

    Join Devinder for this uplifting class as we gather together to make a powerful claim to overcome our challenges while manifesting our intentions. Our class includes an overview of the astrology of the New Moon, breath work (pranayam), a short yoga set (kriya), a prosperity meditation and a deep relaxation with two Gongs played at the same time.

    Cost: PranaShanti Class Card or Drop-in Fee.

  • Spring Equinox 108 Sun Salutations

    Spring Equinox 108 Sun Salutations

    Friday, March 20th, 6:00pm - 8:00pm
    Spring Equinox 108 Sun Salutations
    Why 108? The number 108 is an auspicious number in many traditions, including Buddhism, Hinduism, and yoga.
     
    Renowned mathematicians of Vedic culture view 108 as the number representing the Wholeness of Existence. 1 stands for Higher Truth, 0 stands for Emptiness or Completeness in spiritual practice, and 8 stands for Infinity or Eternity.

    To celebrate the Spring Equinox, we'll be practicing a highly meditative and vigorous mala (108) sun salutations. Sometimes called the "5k of Yoga", like any personal goal achievement, you take it at your own place. Salutations are practiced in rounds of 10, then marked by a meditation.

    Practice will begin with an overview of best practices for salutations and how to provide self-care based on Ayurvedic principles.

    Cost: Drop-in Fee or use your PranaShanti Class Card.

    Enjoy tea and snacks after class.
