Ayurveda teaches us that there are so many tools one can use to support physical, mental and emotional health. Marma therapy is the use of touching specific points on the body to

influence the subtle flow of prana (life force energy). This workshop will introduce Marma

therapy to provide a foundation of how and why one would use this technique over other

subtle therapies. Walk away with an understanding to be able to apply this technique in your daily self care practices, yoga practice and other spiritual/health practices.

NO DRUMMING EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY — ALL ARE WELCOME!

 

RhythmetriX combines music, movement, and mindfulness into the ultimate wellness workshop through group drumming on huge, hand-made drums. Class begins by learning basic technique and how to play the drums with the entire body instead of just the hands. Following the warm up, participants drop into mindfulness exercises that hone the mind and sharpen the ear. When the mind and body is fully engaged, class shifts into a series of interlocking rhythms before culminating with an improvised collection of sound. Join us for this one-of-a-kind experience and be the beat that moves you.

With increasing toxicity in the world we live in it is a necessity to detox the body, mind and emotions on a regular basis. Most western techniques are harsh on the system causing more harm than good and don’t focus on proper preparation to make sure the toxins are removed safely rather than re-depositing in the body and don’t focus on post detox to make sure the system is set up for success afterwards. Ayurveda specializes in the ability to detox and rejuvenate the body in a safe, effective and sustainable manner for over all health and wellbeing. The first class introduces the concepts of detox and rejuvenation with continuing classes going into more depth in each topic.
