Join us for a day of yoga, breathwork, meditation, and talking to envision the new year. January is the threshold of the new year. Let's take this time to integrate all we have learned, clear our eyes, and envision something new.
Equinox Day Long Retreat
Turning Towards the Light
Saturday, March 16th
9:30 am - 5:30 pm at a private residence in Malibu
Let's land together in a day of contemplation to mark this first quarter of the year. As darkness and light come into balance, we turn towards the light. We will do this by listening to the subtle cues of the heart. Connecting to ourselves and moving intuitively from inner and outer listening. We will do yoga, meditation, breathwork, council circles and reflection. We will explore our participation with nature and continue to breathe into our desires.
Yoga Basics/Introduction to Yoga
These workshops provide a way to begin for those just starting out and a deepened understanding for those who have been practicing for a while. Beginners can start their journey grounded in a personal understanding of yoga and feel more comfortable navigating all the different styles and brands of yoga out there today. Each workshop has a different theme, so you can come again and again to consider life and practice in different ways.
New dates coming soon. Please contact Laura if you would like to arrange a group for your studio or for a group of friends.
Thursday February 15th 6:30 - 8:00 pm*
Self-Love & Forgiveness
We will use the power of the heart to come back to ourselves and continue on our journeys. Often, if we are stuck, there is something of the heart that must first be heard and healed. Whether your medicine is forgiveness, compassion, self-kindness, self-love, an honoring of grief, or revising an old wound, community, breath, and music will support you.
Thursday March 15th 6:30 - 8:00 pm*
Our subconscious predicts what is possible for the future based on what we have experienced in the past. Yet, the soul has the feeling that there must be more. We will look at the beliefs we've been carrying from past experience and use the technique of the consciously connected breath to breathe in more health and goodness beyond what we could have imagined before.
In what ways are you seeking deeper connection? A spiritual idea says that we are always connected to everything we need. Yet, as life unfolds, there are certain connections that we need to rebuild and reclaim. Connection to yourself, connection to others, connection to the divine, connection to the ancestors, connection to resources–what is calling for you? In this circle, we will explore what sorts of connections are desired and release any barriers that might stand in the way. There is often a fear that dramatic changes are needed externally in order for us to get the connection we desire, but it is more often that the change needed is a more subtle shift from within. Through the consciously connected breath, we will amplify a space of love and release any barriers within our own hearts that used to keep us in separation.
