Opportunities for you connect and grow beyond our regular class schedule.
Heal Your Self
This class will create a safe environment to truly acknowledge and release all the stress, worries, and anxiety. We will begin to let go of the long and overly held exhalation. Within that newfound space, a deep and nourishing inhalation to fill you up with peace and joy.
We will begin with pranayama and meditation to ground, strengthen, and connect where we are as individuals and as a group. You will then be led through restorative yoga postures to create greater self-awareness, calm the nervous system, reduce stress, and boost the immune system. Restorative yoga is the perfect transition to yoga nidra meditation. In a state of being completely relaxed to slow down the brain waves, yoga nidra has the ability to heal trauma, reduce chronic pain, and begin to plant seeds of future growth.
This is time set aside to be where you are while loving yourself completely. When you move from this practice you will have provided a healing space of kindness and compassion.

Gathering of Like Minds
Meet your community! Once a month, I invite you to step off the mat and into a yogic-led conversation. Dawn Shanthi DiVita will begin class with insight drawn from yogic books and/or current events. This may lead to questions, journaling, and sharing. Please bring a notebook and pen!
This time is carved out for you to be supported and lifted by your tribe. Whether you lovingly offer stories or hold space for those who share, it is a space for us to connect and grow as individuals and a strong circle.

Sound Bath Experience with Greg Burns of Metta Vibrations.
