NOTE NEW TIME:
Qoya: Women’s Mindful Movement & Full Moon Ritual
Join us for Qoya on Friday April 19–the night of the Full Pink Moon–to dance with the energy of breaking free! Full moon time allows us to shine a clear light on our lives, illuminating what no longer serves us. It is an excellent time to free ourselves from the beliefs, thoughts and patterns of behavior that hold us back from living the lives we truly want. Then, just like the pink phlox flower for which the moon was named, we can bloom with wild abandon!
After our dance, weather permitting, we will walk to a nearby park to commune with the moon through ritual and enjoy potluck treats (please bring something to share).
Qoya is a moving meditation—an opportunity to embody your spirit through movement. It is a place to practice letting go of the mental narrative and take some time to feel deeply into your embodied truth. Qoya helps us remember that our essence is wise, wild and free. It also offers us an opportunity to connect with a supportive circle of women.
The best thing about Qoya is that there is no way to do it wrong! Check it out at www.qoya.love.

Yoga Nidra with Live Hammered Dulcimer Music
In this energetic, 2 hour workshop you learn about specific techniques to create intentions that work at the subconsious level. Experience Yoga Nidra that combines the talents of certified yoga teacher Bill Eager and the ethereal sounds of dulcimer music by musician Laurie Nelson. This beautiful combination of energy, awareness and music creates a profound shift that connects you energetically with your intentions.
Yoga Nidra creates a state of deep relaxation where your body heals naturally as your energy channels open. During Yoga Nidra your brain moves into the Alpha state where you release large amounts of trapped energy held hostage in the form of physical, mental and emotional blockages. Your entire body begins to rejuvenate. Your energy flows freely, without, physical or psychological constriction and your body realizes a state of physiological harmony where you can realize specific intentions for your health and relationships. You will learn how to create intentions that are immediately accepted at the deepest level of your being. You will leave this short workshop feeling refreshed and alive!
