Spring Stability - Restoring the base chakras and Kapha dosha

Spring Stability - Restoring the base chakras and Kapha dosha

As nature invites us to turn the page from winter to spring, we open the door to new shifts. The weather and earth’s surroundings transform around us and we too are sprung into new energetic changes. Since spring is associated with the Ayurvedic dosha of Kapha, there is a strong earth quality present. When in balance, Kapha can provide us strength and stability, but when imbalanced, our energy can be low and dull.

The first three chakras (root, sacral and solar plexus) govern our sense of security, well-being and empowerment. Some may reason that these lower chakras are the most influential to our internal balance as they set the foundation for the remaining 4 chakras. When marrying understanding of these chakras and the tone of the Kapha season, we can develop tools to help us remain balanced and positive on an overall level.

Join Koren Kiener for a grounding and strengthening practice. This 2 hour workshop will inform students of the fundamental qualities of the first 3 chakras as well as the main aspects of the Kapha season. With this overview, practitioners will be encouraged to apply skillful meditation and asana to compliment these attributes. Since these chakras are heavily themed around support and confidence, students will be cued to tap into these inner resources with guidance.

This is an all-levels offering that is well suited for students wanting to learn more about the chakras, doshas and seeking a grounding practice.

A Mindful Meal

Join Koren Kiener and Dena Ehrlich for a nourishing evening of guided meditation and a beautifully hand-crafted meal.

WHAT IS A MINDFUL MEAL?

A guided contemplative meal with friends old and new. This is an opportunity to be present and embrace the feeling of a shared group meal without worrying about small talk. The emphasis is on tasting, feeling, and enjoying the sensory experience of eating, from noticing the heaviness of your fork to the crunchy pop of the wheatberry.

Food preparation by Dena Ehrlich
Meditation guidance by Koren Kiener

Sankalpa IV: Intention Embodied

It's time to celebrate! The end of the year is upon us, and it deserves some recognition for our accomplishments and the inspiration towards new and/or existing intentions. Join Koren Kiener for this fourth part workshop series, centered around the practices of sankalpa and the law of attraction.

A sankalpa devotion ultimately asks us to create the life that brings us joy, and to channel our deepest heart-felt desires. The law of attraction motivates us to dedicate positive focus towards what we wish to manifest. This event will build upon the previous sessions to further illuminate your intended path and recognize the progress that you’ve already made. Curious as a first-timer? Great! This is an opportune time to begin this personal work. The beauty of intention is that it allows us to create and return to our motivations at any time. Through consistency in practice and reflection, we begin to continually develop tools to meet our aspirations through this powerful awareness.

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early with a notebook and pen

Members: $35 / Standard: $40

LIVE MUSIC WITH GABRIEL HARRIS!
