Embodied Practice: 200 Hour Teacher Training

There is no value in being expected to practice yoga like the person next to you. In the same way, there is no value in teaching yoga like the person next to you. Embodied Practice will encourage you to discover and honor your path to self care, an immersion for the creative and the curious that changes the way we approach our practice and how to share it.

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.

Manifest + Transform: A Monthly New Moon Circle


It’s not that the moon alone is magic, but through connecting to its rhythm, you find greater attunement with your own ability to create magic in your life.

When you take time out of your busy life to envision the life you want for yourself, you’re much more likely to take action to support it. When you don’t give your vision any attention, life will just roll along, and pretty soon years will go by, and you lose touch with that part of yourself that wants to create something more meaningful.

Connecting with the New Moon allows you to plant seeds for future change and to connect to the vision that you have for yourself. Connecting in sacred space and in community supports manifestation and transformation.

These monthly moon gatherings will allow you to clarify your intentions for the rest of the month—and commit to aligned action steps to support your vision.

This month our focus will be on planting the seeds that will germinate in the Spring. This new moon falls near Imbolc and Candlemas, also known as St Brigid’s Day. These celebrations all honor the fact that we’re halfway through the darkest days of winter and that spring will be here soon.

Even in the midst of harshness, we can nurture the seeds that are ready to blossom in the future.
When we get too bogged down in winter energy, it can feel stagnant and that every action – from getting up in the morning to getting yourself to bed at night – feels like it’s being done with a 10 ton weight on your back.
By tending to your creative ideas, self-care, and your unique brilliance, getting through the remaining winter/hibernation until spring will feel much lighter.

Bring a journal, an object of meaning and your own open heart. The circle will include meditation, journaling, sharing and time for quiet contemplation.

forest bathing and meditation
plant based meals and snacks, made with love

Restorative Lab
Sep

3:30 PM15:30

Restorative Lab

Why would you stay somewhere that does not serve you? Restorative Lab offers you the tools to find your sweet spots in your restorative practices. The nuances that allow you to sink in, and experience stillness more fully.

This is a platform for discovery. Not a restorative class, but an opportunity for exploration, we’ll break down poses and take the time to find the specific support and modifications that suit us as individuals. In doing so, we can approach our restorative practices from a new perspective: one that allows us to shed light on how adaptable we, and our practices, really are.

Tuning into our nervous system and our need for rest, Restorative Yoga is fundamentally a held space that allows you time to decompress. The key to relaxing the body and the mind begins with this foundation: if we feel safe and supported in our physical body we can begin to turn down the noise, the systematic triggers that keep us in the cycle of fight or flight. 

But how can one feel supported, if you aren’t? Our bodies and our dispositions are unique and our needs are, too. Learning to identify what serves us is tantamount here, and in every aspect of our life.

This two hour laboratory style event is limited to six people, to encourage unhindered exploration, plenty of props, and personal attention. We’ll end with a long savasana with Reiki and Marma assists.

Investment in yourself and this work: $55
(includes a special something)
