SOUL SANGHA: Finding Intuition through Meditation…a few more spots!
SOUL SANGHA at Ocean Earth Wind Fire: Finding Intuition through Meditation
Sunday March 9th and March 16th from 7-8:30pm
$40 for 2 classes (you can join us on March 16…$20)
The practice of Yoga is over 10,000 years old. In the expansive amount of time from its beginning up until around 300 AD, “Yoga” meant exclusively a meditation practice. The physical poses didn’t emerge until around then, and were created as a means of preparing the body physically to be able to handle sitting in meditation for extensive periods of time. Today, when you think of Yoga, you may think of a physical practice with a brief period of meditation at the end. However, the benefits of meditation are vast – from stress relief, to increased brain function and focus, increased creativity and compassion and (most importantly) the opportunity to get to know yourself on a deeper level by practicing mindfulness and awareness.
Siobhan Bedford and Amber Campman are offering a 3 week class series devoted to the practice of Meditation. This is for anyone and everyone – no experience is necessary! The theme for this 2 week class series is Mindfulness through the Senses. By providing a sacred space and the ritual of a practice at Ocean Earth Wind Fire, Siobhan and Amber hope to give you practical tools and ideas to bring a meditation practice into your daily life. Each class will include an opening ritual, a short physical practice to prepare the body and mind for meditation, meditation practice itself, journaling and reflection period, and a closing ritual. Journals are being provided as part of this class, but please bring your own if you’d like to write any additional notes to take home.
March 9th with Amber: Mindfulness through the Senses
March 16th with Siobhan: Guided meditation and embracing silence
Space is limited, so please email Amber Campman to register at email@example.com

3 NEW CLASSES!
Broga® Yoga is here!!!
Beginning this weekend, Broga® Yoga will be held twice every week!
*Friday Night Coed Broga® Yoga @ 6pm with Kathleen
This is a stabilizing and strengthening practice that’s designed for men and open to all. My personal experience has been that it is EXACTLY what my body craves and doesn’t get enough of. Guys, you should definitely check it out…especially if: you are new to yoga, you’ve been doing yoga forever, you have injury, you are injury-free, you are an athlete or you are not athletic… (get it?!) Girls, you should get your guys to try it and YOU should try it too! This class will be held January 31, February 21 and then EVERY 2ND & 4TH FRIDAY OF THE MONTH beginning in March! Regular pricing applies.
*Saturday Morning Men Only Broga® Yoga @ 10:45am with Michael
The series is the same, but this is a class and time set aside for men only, making the yoga practice accessible & stripped down and the studio time male-dominated is a healthy and focused way to balance YOUR body, your life and our community. AGAIN:Guys, you should definitely check it out…especially if: you are new to yoga, you’ve been doing yoga forever, you have injury, you are injury-free, you are an athlete or you are not athletic… (get it?!)

Join Josette this week for a strong and energizing practice to prep you for an awesome weekend; then next Friday, Jan 31 get ready for our inaugural Broga®Yoga Class with Kathleen McGowan! This is a CO-ED Broga®Yoga practice…per founder Rob Sidoti: ”Fitness from the inside out. Broga® Yoga is geared for men, but open to all. Get “real. fit.”" And from personal experience, I can promise you, male or female, your body will LOVE it!

The Living Mandala Yoga Teacher Training is a year-long journey of deep introspection, creative exploration, and communal seeking. All trainees develop their own, unique philosophy as a yoga teacher, aligning their personal truth with their yoga practice. More importantly, the connection between all trainees is a powerful one that continues long after the program ends. As eternal students, we discuss topics related to yogic philosophy, teaching methodology, physical and subtle body anatomy, and the yogic lifestyle, framing asanas (postures) as temporary expressions of our deeper, ongoing practice.
Schedule and payments are flexible; contact Danielle for details at Info@LivingMandalaYoga.Com.
