YOGA HANDS: Meditation, Mudras + Malas

w. Hope Hamling

is a 2 hour practice/create workshop that reminds us that sometimes the most delicious and effective yoga practices are so very subtle, and can be done anywhere.

Mudras are hand gestures that help to remind us of deep truths. And Japa meditation involves using a mantra (words or sound to help focus the mind) and a strand of mala beads. Both of these simple and beautiful practices can help give us some the spiritual grounding needed to navigate our busy and complicated lives.

In this 2 hour workshop, we'll practice a bunch of mudras, then we'll formulate our own mantras and make our very own strand of mala beads.

WordFlow: The Yoga of Communication (NVC)
Sep

to Sep 27

WordFlow: The Yoga of Communication (NVC)

WordFlow: The Yoga of Communication


Do you wish to bring the same flow of peace, relaxation and openness you experience on your yoga mat to everyday conversations and relationships?
How can you more closely align your thoughts, words and actions with yoga qualities like presence, precision, balance, strength, flexibility and care?

What is WordFlow?

Based on Nonviolent Communication, WordFlow is a practice that enables living yoga’s principles of nonviolence (ahimsa) and truth (satya) in everyday interactions. We learn to shift from habits of diagnosis, judgments, and blame towards
new ways of connecting from the heart. The simple, transformative WordFlow process grounds us in an intention of compassion -- for ourselves and others. We learn to
maintain or deepen connection, navigating even disagreements by expressing with honesty and listening with empathy. Rather than focusing on getting people to do
what we want, improving the quality of our connection fosters a natural flow of giving and receiving. Relationships of trust, respect, openness and curiosity emerge and
inspire creative solutions that honor everyone’s needs.

WordFlow: A Yoga and Nonviolent Communication Intro Series

Just like yoga asana practice, WordFlow learning happens through hands-on experience with the spirit of experiments. We will learn basic concepts together and
practice in small groups.


➢ experiment #1, september 13th
foundation flow: self-awareness and self-expression

Self-awareness creates the foundation of clarity that enables communication to flow with nonviolence and truth. We’ll explore yoga asana practice as a model for the qualities we wish to bring to our relationships, and investigate ways we support or block flow in our physical practice.

Grounded in these yoga qualities, we’ll move “off the mat,” introducing the 4-step WordFlow process. We’ll translate thoughts and judgments into the WordFlow language of observations, feelings, needs and requests. We’ll then
deepen the practice of self-awareness self-empowerment using participants’ examples of everyday relationship situations.

 experiment #2, september 27th
connecting flow: empathic listening and creative solutions

Getting grounded first in what’s important to ourselves in a situation can open more internal space to hear what truly matters to another person. We’ll examine the concept of empathy and what blocks and supports our ability to listen or be heard. Exploring participants’ real life situations, we’ll practice listening for and reflecting back the essence of the others’ values beneath the surface of their words. Genuinely understanding and appreciating what each other values often generates win-win solutions for situations that parties previously thought impossible.

7 - 9 PM

Mythical Tales: Goddess Archetypes + Rituals

Join us for a behind the scenes tour of the stories behind the yoga poses! In this workshop we’ll dive into the mythical tales of the Hindu Goddesses and use them as a mirror to discover more about our own hearts. Myths are like prisms, reflecting us back to ourselves and providing meaningful clues to help us through challenging moments in our lives. Lakshmi, Sarsaswati, Radha and the gang are just like us – they go through heartache, they experience challenges and fears, they doubt. We’ll use their stories to make sense of our own stories, and to really embody the myths we’ll combine them with mudras (sacred hand gestures that inspire specific states of consciousness). The class will end with a Kali Puja, which is an ancient ritual designed to ready us for deep transformation and liberation. No asana. All humans welcome, no yoga or mythology experience necessary.

Mythical Vinyasa Kali Edition: The Master Class

The Kali Edition! It’s a journey into the heart of the dark Goddess, complete with storytelling, mantras, mudras (sacred hand gestures) and of course lots of weird and wildly creative yoga. And don’t worry, “master class” doesn’t mean that you have to be a master of anything! It’s a thing we yogis say when the class goes really deep into one particular aspect of yoga, and in this case that particular aspect is Kali.

Kali is the Hindu Goddess of Time, although her fierce appearance has led many to mistakenly deem her the Goddess of Death.  She is an archetype that we can call upon when we want to radically transform some aspect of our lives and really shake things up. Come if you’re feeling stuck, come if you’re longing to shed some old thought or habit, or just come if you love a great story! Asana and storytelling, all levels welcome.

Coloring Outside The Lines: Creative Yoga For Non Conformists

Yoga by nature is subversive. The first yogis were misfits who left behind the status quo and headed to the mountains or the forest to seek a life beyond shallow materialism. When yoga came to America, hippies and social revolutionaries were amongst the first to embrace it because it fit right in with their whole “fight the power” vibe. Somehow, in our lifetime, yoga has gone from counter-culture to the pop culture. Let’s take it back to its roots! This workshop is all about finding the rebellion in your yoga practice. Let’s not do it the same way we’ve always done it just because some dude said it was gospel 50 years ago. There are so many inspiring people out there revolutionizing the yoga practice, helping it to evolve so that it truly serves OUR needs, as modern truth seekers and radical human beings on a path of transformation. We’ll explore wild new ways to use props, we’ll bust a few old school anatomy myths, and we’ll shake up our body temple with all kinds of creative movement. Let’s be part of the Yoga Renaissance!

Remembering Our Way: A Journey of Breath + Movement + Sound to Reconnect with our Inner Light

Remembering Our Way

~ A journey of breath + movement + sound to reconnect with our inner light ~

04.19.19 / 6-8 pm / $25

We are medicine. We are magic. We have all the tools we need within us to remember who we truly are & bring forth our brilliant light.

Stacey Pickering is a holistic wellness practitioner, musician, sound healer, yogi, meditation guide, group ecotherapy facilitator & performance artist/creative mover. In this journey, she will guide participants through explorations of breath, movement, stillness, sound & silence to a place of awareness within.

Stacey finds profound healing, wholeness & freedom in weaving these elements into a path of ever-deepening & endlessly expanding discovery, and loves to amplify the experience by co-creating with groups.

Participants are always free to move, breathe & vocalize in ways that serve them best in each moment. Invitations will be offered, but more than anything, this is an exercise in listening to & honoring your truth & your needs. After a period of group movement, breath & sound exploration, participants will be guided to a place of stillness, to enjoy a deeply restorative sound immersion performed by Stacey with crystal & Tibetan singing bowls, vocalization & various other vibrationally healing instrumentation.

As we awaken to & deepen our connection with our inner guidance systems, we remember our way – a way of wholeness, wellness, cooperation, creativity, peace and freedom.

Joy + Suffering: Exploring our Humanity by Looking Deeply

Brene Brown wrote: 

"I think the beauty of twinkle lights is the perfect metaphor for joy. Joy is not a constant. It comes to us in moments – often ordinary moments. Sometimes we miss out on the bursts of joy because we are too busy chasing down the extraordinary moments. Other times were so afraid of the dark that we don’t dare let ourselves enjoy the light. A joyful life is not a flood light of joy. That would eventually become unbearable. I believe a joyful life is made up of joyful moments gracefully strung together by trust, gratitude and inspiration."

By deeply understanding our suffering, we can begin to access more and more joy in our lives. Join Nichole Pulley for this special class that includes Yin yoga, meditation, journaling, and a dharma talk about suffering, mindfulness, and how to lead a balanced life aware of joy.

Equinox: Seasonal Ritual, Sound Bath + Guided Meditation

The beginning of Spring is the perfect time to shed what no longer serves us, create new space within ourselves, and plant the seeds to grow more of what we want to see and be. 

You are invited to join Holistic Wellness Practitioner Stacey Pickering for an Earth-honoring ceremony and sound bath, including crystal singing bowls, intuitive vocalization and other vibrationally healing instrumentation.

Crystal singing bowls, made of quarts and other gemstones, are used in ceremony, healing, meditation, and various transformative experiences. They produce strong, clear, true tones that resonate deeply in our physical bodies and energetic systems. The vibrations that ring out from the bowls created clear pathways in us for opening, release, connection, balance, and stillness. Their powerful sounds can help us feel grounded, energized, peaceful, uplifted, and whole. 

Stacey is delighted to share this experience in the heart-healing space that is Abide.
