Exploration Through Movement & Dance

Presenter: Svagita Sydney Elks

Friday, 2/13 at 7pm

free will love offering

Your body is wise. Your body knows. Your body is a divine instrument of expression. This monthly movement session is one which your body serves as your instructor. It is an invitation and opportunity to explore in movement and dance where and who you are in this particular moment in time. To facilitate this exploration, Sydney provides a playlist of music from a variety of genres and corners of the world. The music is assembled in a way that loosely resembles a rhythm wave from the Five Rhythm tradition. You are invited to listen deeply and explore how your body responds to the music, the space and the moment. Bring your curiosity, a sense of play, and wear comfortable clothes that you can move freely in.

This is a really fun community event! You are invited to bring YOUR OWN voice, instruments, laughter and sound healing tools to share with the group. No musical experience required. Come join with us to explore vibrational/energy healing, especially the power of sound and voice for personal and planetary transformation. We will use our voices, crystal singing bowls, Tibetan singing bowls, bells, chimes, gongs, tuning forks, digeridoo, Native American flute, hand drums and percussion…use your imagination! Participants will co-create sound using instruments, toning, chant, song, vocal improvisation, sonic attunement, hands on techniques (and more) to help us release blocks, free our voices, reclaim power, accelerate growth and come into fuller expression and harmony.

Our crystal bowls will be water tuned to the 432 Hz scale – if you have a crystal singing bowl, bring it with you to learn how to tune. No Instruments required to participate. We will also have instruments available to share. www.laughtersoundhealing.com

Yoga, Intentions, and Food

Tuesday at 12:00pm – 1:00pm

Instructor: Shade Anthonson

Donation

 Have you ever had the thought, “If I just ate better then I would feel better.” One day I decided to test this truth. What did I find when I embarked on this journey? I was sitting in the break room at work being mindful while eating fruit and nuts. I noticed the fruit I ate gave me energy and the nuts calmed me down. Several days later I read an article on nutrition stating while eating a raw diet that nuts can be used to boost energy. The next time I was eating nuts I noticed the nuts had the effect of increasing my energy. By simply changing my belief the nuts affected my body in an entirely different way.

This is a striking example of not only “you are what you eat” but also how our thoughts and beliefs about food also effect the body. I came to the realization why there are so many different diets that work for so many different people. While the choice of foods relating to a certain body type and condition are important, the positive thoughts and beliefs about the foods we eat also have a profound effect on health. Scripture says “A person cannot live on bread alone but on every word that God speaks”. How can we align our will with our beliefs in order to become healthier? In this class we will be learning about how food effects our body, and how beliefs effect our food. We will be exploring the relationship between these two levels of truth and much more! Wear comfortable clothing for yoga. Bring a snack to share that you believe will promote healing.

**Jessica’s Tuesday night classes, Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Yoga Pilates will combined into one Ashtanga Yoga class.

This new class will be offered from 5:30 – 6:45 p.m. each Tuesday. You’ll still be getting vinyasa style yoga coupled with core strengthening and toning exercises with this new class.
