Sacred Cacao Ceremony
Jul

Sacred Cacao Ceremony

For thousands of years people have considered cacao as a sacred plant with potent healing properties. It was used both for its widely understood health benefits as well as in ceremonial settings.

Cacao is a powerful heart-opener, increasing blood flow and focus so that meditation, yoga and therapeutic work are more accessible. It’s gentle supportive energy allows people to expand into a heightened state of awareness, as well as supports us in the place we are at, and the path we are on.

A cacao ceremony is an opportunity to connect to yourself and open your heart. Because of cacao’s ability to increase your connection to your inner self, and your heart chakra, whether you are looking to deepen your understanding of who you are, release old patterns and traumas, or move into a more self-confident space, it aids in any transformational shift you are working towards. Join us as we move through a gentle yet restorative flow followed by a guided meditation as we journey into ourselves and deeper into our heart.

April Pink Moon Meditation

It’s the Moon’s journey, as it orbits around Earth, that creates the predictable dance between light and shadow. 

Join us for this full moon guided meditation ceremony as we quiet our mind, and open our hearts to embrace life's transitions and new beginnings. During this workshop we will move through a Yin style practice embracing Aprils Pink Moon in Scorpio before moving into a deeper meditation focused around new beginnings.

Scorpio pulls us into mysterious depths with its profound shadows. showing us it's a time to come home to the power of the imagination that can shape your life. Come to class with an intention you wish to manifest for 2018!

Our habitual mind is constantly distracted by the past and the future, and it rarely rests in nowness. Meditation is an ancient practice that has been used for centuries to assist in daily living, as well as used as a tool to access the higher realms of our consciousness. It is a practice that allows us a better, clearer and more accurate look into ourselves. As we learn to visit this place inside ourselves, we decide what to give our attention to, and what thoughts, desires, and feelings we wish to manifest in the present.

Partner Yoga Workshop with Troy and Ellery

Explore a deeper connection through your breath and movement in a safe and playful environment. Together as Partners, we practice breathing, assisting, and flowing, with an introduction to Acro Yoga. Partner Yoga develops trust, support, and communication. As a healing art, the bonds of relationship are strengthened through verbal and non-verbal communication. Partner Yoga is not for couples only – any two participants are welcome and is accessible to all levels. Instructors will photograph the session and can be emailed to all participants.

Meet Ellery - Born in California and raised in an open-minded, garden growing holistic environment, Ellery’s mom first took her to a yoga class at the age of six and was in awe of the practice ever since. Having moved to multiple states throughout Ellery’s life, yoga has been her only constant.

Ellery graduated early with high honors from the University of Oklahoma, where she earned a B.A. in Journalism. She had the opportunity to work with amazing companies, ranging from non-profits, nutrition PR firms, to major television networks. After spending time working in such high-stress environments, she decided to throw out her corporate slacks for stretchy yoga pants to spread mind and body awareness through the uplifting flow of yoga.In 2014, Ellery received her 200RYT yoga teaching certification through Chicago’s prime Yogaview studio and is trained in Trauma Sensitive Yoga. Now, a full-time yoga teacher in Atlanta, her intention is to empower others to connect to their authentic self, while expressing their greatest potential both on and off of the mat.Growing up as a Competitive Latin Ballroom dancer, her passion for organic movement and connecting the mind and body continues to be her main inspiration.Ellery’s teaching style is Vinyasa/Hatha based with an influence of Ashtanga. She teaches with compassion and appreciation of the individual yet encourages everyone to challenge themselves while emphasizing alignment, making it accessible to all levels. When joining her in class, expect a lively, warm flow that will ignite your energy and bring a smile to your heart.

Meet Troy -Troy received his 200hr yoga teaching certification through Yogaview, under the guidance of Claire Mark, Geri Bleier, Quinn Kearney and Tom Quinn. Troy began practicing yoga in 2011, having an already active life of running, biking, and weightlifting. Working off the mat he balances his weekly work routine with a steady yoga practice in the studio and at home. Yoga has helped Troy discover a profound strength and flexibility of body and mind. With psychological courage and humility he wants to share what he has learned, helping others discover it for themselves. Troy’s intentions are to guide others in their yoga practice, and help them create a path that will merge body with mind and health with happiness. Having a strong inversion and transition practice, Troy will challenge his class through vinyasa sequences and provide opportunities that will advance the student’s practice at all levels. Troy also teaches private lesson and workshops. With his partner Ellery Long, they have formed Partners in Yoga, leading partner yoga workshops and retreats.

Journey to the Soul - A Mindfulness Workshop

Learm more about guided meditation as we quiet our mind, and go on a spiritual journey to the soul. We are not body and mind alone. During this workshop we will take a journey into greater conscious connection with the soul .

Our habitual mind is constantly distracted by the past and the future, and it rarely rests in nowness. Meditation is an ancient practice that has been used for centuries to assist in daily living, as well as used as a tool to access the higher realms of our consciousness. It is a practice that allows us a better, clearer and more accurate look into ourselves. As we learn to visit this place inside ourselves, we decide what to give our attention to, and what thoughts, desires, and feelings we wish to manifest in the present.

The meditation will be infused with Reiki, a Japanese healing technique, that moves life force energy through the physical, emotional, and spiritual body. This offers many beneficial effects that include relaxation, feelings of peace, and over all wellbeing. Receiving Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of physical and spiritual healing that everyone can experience. Hands on assists will be offered. Please come with an intention and open mind.
