Chakra Revolution Workshop…August 11

Our weeks of deep diving into study of the chakras from the root up filled the studio wall with the wisdom of the ages! YOU filled the wall with the wisdom of the ages.

Come revolutionize the way you understand and carry yourself in the world by reviewing these energy centers from root to crown…bodily, psychically and with a unique and revitalizing somatic breath technique.

Let’s all immerse in a sacred experiment of instantaneous reset over the coming weeks! Susan will teach you a 7 minute (or less) centering and enlivening process to help you meet even the most forbidding challenges, recurrent anxieties, foul moods and that vague and uncomfortable feeling that something is “off”.

The process is easy and accessible. Effective and escalating. Like any good practice should be.

This 2-hour workshop will be an intimate immersion of profound sharing and healing, so please come ready to show yourself and SEE others…or as David Whyte says, see” what you previously thought of as other than you”.

The wall is beautiful because we are beautiful. Together we cut a wide swath of beauty in this world!

Everyone is welcome! $44 per person. Please reserve your spot as space is limited.

Another summer season of outdoor yoga in our favorite spot is about to begin! Be there for our opening circle and a practice in devotion to the natural beauty of the world around us on Tuesday, May 22 at 6:30!
Then every week through October 1, we get to bring our yoga out into the fresh breezes and the magic of countless leaves on the majestic trees, the rainstorms, the flowers, the birdsong and the sunsets. Pure delight and the sweetest chance each week to ground yourself and realign with your own exquisite nature.
Every class is rain or shine because we are under cover. Class is $16, open to drop-ins and we have space for like a 100! LOL Bring your friends! I can’t wait to see you there!

Location is at the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove, 1201 Pawlings Rd in Audubon…just 4 miles from the studio. There are walking trails and a bird sanctuary and museum to check out too! Lot’s of construction going on there, but it won’t impact us in the least!

Just Sit~~A Meditation for Everyone, every 2nd & 4th Sunday!

We are thrilled to announce that Seated Meditation on Sunday morning is returning after many years! Mark your calendars for the 2nd and 4th Sundays of every month at 7am…the first session will be held on Sunday, June 10!

Our leader is David Vosburgh, a long-time member of our community who

many of you know (or will recognize!) David has asked to hold space and support a meditation group as an act of service to the studio and our community.

David has this to say:

“The purpose of these meditation sessions is to help others form their own meditation practice and talk about the experiences of life, and is guided by the genuine wish for others to have happiness and be free from suffering. While my thoughts will be coming from a Buddhist perspective, I welcome all others from any background or tradition to attend.
I do not have yoga, meditation, reiki, or such therapist credentials, and can only offer my experience. I first started sitting when I was in college as a way to deal with stress. Since 2005-ish I have been sitting just about every day for about 30 minutes or so. While I have for several years considered myself a Buddhist, within the last year I have been attending a Tibetan Buddhist temple in Philadelphia.”

This hour is for everyone. No experience is needed. Please arrive on time (or a little early) to get situated. The first 30 – 45 minutes will be for meditation followed by group discussion on selected meditation topics for approximately 15-30 minutes.

We are suggesting a $5 donation for these sessions and ALL proceeds will be given as a charitable donation to PACS, Phoenixville Area Community Services.

Please reach out here or contact Susan with any questions and I can put you in touch with David directly!

On certain Sundays, Susan and our staff will offer POP UP YOGA classes at 8:15am!!! Next UP: Sunday, July 22 at 8:15am Blue Sky Yin Yoga!

Death & Dying, A Workshop Series with Selena Morresi…August 10

Death and Dying Workshop:

Death touches all of our lives. It is a part of the natural flow of nature; as things arise and fall, so shall we all. Let the seasons help guide us through an exploration of grief, death and dying.

Beginning this winter starting January 19th 2018, we will meet once a season to explore grief, death and dying and allow the quality of the seasons to guide us. The goal of this workshop is to explore what we fear about death, how we can find meaning in death, how we can celebrate those who have died, and how we can prepare for our own death and live a fuller life.

Please bring a journal to write in. We will be seated on the floor during most of the workshop so feel free to bring blankets and pillows.

Winter -January 19th, 2018 6:30-8pm   Healing and embracing darker days: finding meaning in death, and acknowledging our fear of death.

Spring – April 13th, 2018 6:30-8pm  Moving from darkness to light, renewal, and finding life from death.

Summer – August 10th, 2018 6:30-8pm Embracing death through the lens of life and how we can honor and celebrate those who have died.

Fall- October 12th, 2018 6:30-8pm Contemplation and preparation for our own death and life.

The cost of each workshop is $25.  Please pre-register to attend.

Selena Morresi has always had a passion for learning and was a very curious child who loved to explore new ideas and activities. Never quite sure of what she wanted to be when she “grew up” lead to an 10 year undergrad career as she changed her major many times to explore all that college had to offer. Once Selena realized that becoming a professional student was not an option, she completed her Bachelors in Psychology and later received a Masters degree in Public Health. Selena is still learning and growing and has become a Reiki Master Practitioner, Certified Heath Educator and a Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist.  Selena is currently completing a certification in Holistic Stress Management, receiving her Reiki Master Teacher Attunement in October and plans to peruse her Death Doula certification this summer in New Mexico. Selena works as a Tobacco Treatment Specialist by day, helping people change their behavior and quit using nicotine products. At night Selena is adjunct faculty at West Chester University in the Health Department where she teaches courses that focus on Mental Health and Death and Dying.
