40-Day Sadhana For Fall Equinox 

Our next daily meditation is the wonderful Kirtan Kriya, also called Sa Ta Na Ma. This is one of the most well-known meditations in the Kundalini Yoga tradition. Neuroscientists have studied Kirtan Kriya, which has been recognized as a powerful tool for improving memory and focus and reducing stress. It has also performed well on tests to reverse the early onset of Alzheimer's  (See below for more info on that.) 

Join Nandi every morning to welcome the change of season and Fall Equinox with a clear mind and renewed outlook. It's time to go back to the ways of our ancestors or indigenous peoples.

Location: Lighthouse Yoga Center

Fridays, 10:45am-12pm

Pricing: $108 general / $96 members

Available online or in person.  To attend in person you must be vaccinated for Covid.

This postnatal class series, designed for people with babies 6-weeks to pre-crawling, will focus on exploring and learning about how the core, pelvic floor and joints can all be affected by pregnancy and how we can work to heal, strengthen and stabilize.  Restorative poses throughout each class will help soothe baby-addled nerves. And with babies welcome in class (both online or in person), you can feel free to stop your practice anytime you need to care for baby. And you'll receive a recording of each class, so if you had to leave practice to care for baby, you can pick up where you left off on the recording later! Each class gives you a chance to connect with other new parents in the community and talk about any issues you are having with your post baby body.

Compassion Cultivation Training©

Dates: Tuesday, October 04, 2022 - Tuesday, November 22, 2022
Location: Online
Online  

$375 general/ $300 early-bird registration (ends Sept 16)

Online, 8 Tuesdays, Oct 4-Nov 22, 6:30-8:30pm

 What exactly is compassion? How does it differ from empathy? And how can compassion prevent burnout, build resilience, and increase happiness? All questions you can find answers to in this course!

 Each of us is born with the capacity for compassion. It’s the seed within that has allowed the human species to evolve and flourish. Most scientists now agree that Darwin’s theories support “survival of the kindest,” not survival of the fittest! Our instinct to care is what has allowed us to adapt to changing, even challenging circumstances, and thrive. However, the seed of compassion, like any seed, needs tending. We have to cultivate compassion because there are many forces in society that mitigate against it taking root and growing tall. Meditation can help us nourish the soil and water the seedling. Similarly, learning to practice compassion in our day-to-day life is an exercise we can do that’s good for those we interact with, but also good for ourselves—like training at the gym. And just as there is sports science, there is compassion science!

 Join Abby  for this in-person two-part workshop!  Take one or both!

This workshop is for any yoga practitioner with any level of experience who is interested in empowering their individual practice. Both workshops will begin with a discussion on our two basic principles (Intra-Abdominal Pressure and Ground Force Reaction) that can be directly applied towards your individual practice and body patterns. Abby will weave together knowledge from over a decade of working with bodies as a massage therapist and yoga teacher to offer information that's practical, accessible, and applicable. Then, we'll move through a yoga practice where we'll put skill into action, apply that new knowledge as a diagnostic tool, and gain a direct experience of our unique bodies.
