From Rosslyn:
Hi there, I’m Rosslyn Kemerer, founder of Wholehearter Yoga. I am blessed to have discovered that sharing yoga is what makes me tick. Wholehearter Yoga was created out of a need to share the depths of yoga teaching within a solution-based environment. Together, we discover the best ways for yoga, energy healing or life-coaching techniques to meet you where you’re at, but also to create brand new patterns and take steps toward living wholeheartedly.
The type of yoga that I love to teach is like soul-therapy. When you dive into the subtle signals and messages your body and mind is sending, the path to healing becomes much more clear. I love studying Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupressure and the many ways in which our body expresses our emotions, moods and personality.  I am always looking to learn new ways to facilitate a deeper understanding of our mind-body connection.

Fire Ignite Workshop…May 6 w/Susan

Fire Workshop with Susan…Saturday, May 6 at 11am
Fire Ignite…Fan the Flames of Fear, Forgiveness & Creativity

We may be feeling fear, frustration AND the impetus to act, but there is much that gets in the way of our productivity and effectiveness. Having just entered into eclipse season, we are primed to step across a new threshold and into a future we desire and direct. So let’s give those pesky fears a name and a lovely place to sit, while we take control of our selves and our movements out into the world, so that our actions can be sourced from clarity and love.

EVERY time I teach the elements, the wisdom and the resonance becomes deeper and more meaningful…for me AND for my students. I am able toexplore and expand the rich and reliable practice of observing, honoring, appreciating and USING water, wind, rock and heat as a way into self-understanding, soul-awareness and a really, really nice feeling of wholeness and well-being.

This installment will include movement, breathwork, intuitive painting & a circle ceremony at the firepit that will mark your very cells with the teachings. Practical ways to keep the practice going on your own at home will be clear and simple.

Registration is open! $45 for this two-hour reboot!
You must pay in advance to be able to attend…follow the ticket link to register online.

Next Sunday Morning Class is on April 2!…Planetary Yoga!

Planetary Yoga is here!
Please join Megan for a waxing moon practice, a vinyasa flow focusing on harnessing our internal fire and opening our hearts.

Yoga is more than an exercise, it’s an ever-evolving journey. To practice yoga is to begin consciously connecting with your body, mind, and spirit. In sanskrit, the word yoga means ‘to yoke’; thus yoga brings together the body and mind, spirit and soul, motions and mindfulness. Yoga helps us see through the heart even when the eyes are closed, bringing awareness into daily life and building bridges where no path had ever before been imagined.

Planetary Yoga takes this a step further, reconnecting the individual with not only the rhythms of their own bodies, but also the rhythyms of their planet, the phases of the moon, and the vibrations of planetary aspects. By tapping into these celestial patterns, we can start realigning our daily lives with the ultimate truth of our souls, of our planet, and of universal consciousness.

ALL are welcome, as we are not alone as we sometimes fool ourselves into believing, but we are instead ALL ONE. Class is $15 per person and you must register by Friday to hold your spot. Class will be confirmed (or cancelled if interest is low) on Saturday morning. Check the website and this event page for updates!

Remember: you are more than a part of the universe, you ARE the universe. Any power within the universe is also yours. Namaste. that is inherent in all of us…” ~Pema Chodron


Sunday morning Yoga has a new vibe. Susan and our devoted teachers will create a wonderful yoga practice with a special vibe and the fancy trappings of a mini-workshop with circles, writing, painting, guided meditation, yoga nidra, sharing in community and more! These classes will be held by pre-registration only. Easy online payment of the $15 cost holds your space in the class. Sign up no later than 6pm on the Friday before and we will confirm the class OR promptly refund your payment on Saturday morning if registration is too low.  This class is $15, pre-registration here:
http://oceanearthwindfire.com/registration/  Remember, this Sunday morning class is by registration only from now on!  Be sure to keep an eye on the class page for dates that are confirmed.

NEW CLASS…Pussy Power Hour!

Step One:  First of all, we could all use a little wake up/shake up in our lives.  Enter a fast-flow, hour-only yoga class on Thursday nights from 6-7pm with Susan.  The power hour part was easy…vaguely  modeled on the “power yoga” formula of old and 60 minutes long, we will fire up our muscles, shake off stress, challenge our determination and practice effort & ease.  A quickie.  Your Thursday Happy Hour.  A neck-loosening, spine-tingling, stomping kind of practice that will leave you feeling ALIVE AND READY!

Step Two:  The impact of the Women’s March cannot be denied.  I am personally feeling moved to keep the energy of activism and participation HIGH.  What we each choose to DO in response to global events and our unique calling in the world is obviously up to us…but who couldn’t use a few more high fives that urge us to keep it up?  Who couldn’t use a weeknight booster shot of “you were MADE for this”?  Who doesn’t want to breathe/jump/dance/stretch their bodies to reinvigorate for the greater good?  Remember that the “women’s” march included many, many MEN and KIDS!  EVERY human is welcome in this class, and frankly; even if your body isn’t feeling an energetic practice, you could come and take it slow or sit simply to be inspired by the practice of others.
Ongoing, regular class begins on Thursday, February 23 at 6pm!  And that first class is FREE!  Stay after class if you can for the Pussy Hat Knitting Circle being led by Tracey DiPaolo at 7pm and held on a donation basis with all supplies needed to knit your own pussy hat!
Thursday class will be held ongoing each week at 6pm with Regular Class Card $13 & Drop In $15 prices applied.

Pussy Hat Knitting Circle…every 2nd, 3rd & 4th Thursday at 7pm!

Tracey DiPaolo has been knitting for 23 years & she just got a huge bolt of energy & excitement for teaching YOU to knit your own pussy hat! Circle with Tracey after Pussy Power Yoga on Thursday night, February 23 at 7pm.

This fun, pertinent, supportive gathering is being offered by donation or on a pay-as-you-may basis. Tracey is providing the yarn (pink and black) and has needles to borrow, but if you want to choose and bring your own, please purchase worsted yarn and size 8 needles!

One of our heroines around here, Clarissa PINKola Estes encourages contribution, activism and full engagement by deliniating so many ways to be of use and share your gifts…here are just a few to add to the collective at work:

-more creative life
-more women’s company
-more spirit
-more recognition of sorority
-more neighborhood revolution
-more terrorist sewing circles

“…refuse to be ashamed, lead the way througth and out. Let us not overspend on anger. Instead let us be empowered by it. Most of all let us be cunning and use our feminine wits. Let us keep in mind that the best cannot and must not hide….So come out, come out wherever you are. Leave deep footprints because you can.”

THIS is going to be fun.
Circle begins at 7pm, right after Pussy Power Yoga at 6pm. Join one or the other or both. Yoga is FREE. Knitting Circle is by donation.
