Explore the fusion of the ancient internal practices of Yoga and Shamanism. Yoga (union with the Divine) and Shamanism (interaction with the spirit world) both are practices traditionally designed to lead us to the direct flow of wisdom. We begin the class with a cup of Sacred Cacao to connect us to Spirit and to help expand our Heart Chakra (30 min). We then use the ancient teachings of Nature's Five Elements for this intense and transformational yoga practice (90 min). Our experience will be deepened by the constant thread of Sacred Sounds performed live.

Take your mind + body + spirit to a place that has you smiling, laughing, loving & speaking your truth. Many of us walk around feeling like we've lost our mojo, our excitement for life. We might have everything we need, while at the same time, searching and trying to fill that void with things that do not serve us. Commonly for most women, self-love and self care sit on the back burner. They lose themselves along the way in the daily grind; kids, jobs, & responsibilities. Each month at Yoga one we Gather at the Full Moon, peeling the layers. This Circle is the next step in honoring ourselves in the New Moon. A new moon symbolizes new beginnings! Using the energy of a new moon helps us to make changes, achieve new goals or to start a new project. This magical time is the perfect opportunity to start rebuilding ourselves, setting new healthy goals and repairing our mindset to support the forward motion. This is your next step in the process of peeling each layer. Through this workshop we will empower you to create the awareness, using tools and practices enabling you to create a lifestyle shift that lasts!
