September 21st, October 23rd (7:30pm), November 16th, December 14th

Do you find yourself feeling stuck, sad, angry, uninspired, frustrated, heavy, out of control or out of touch? This could mean that one or more of your chakras, the main energy centers of the body, is depleted or imbalanced. Our chakras can become blocked, deficient or excessive as we accumulate negative and painful emotional and physical experiences. Join RYT-200 yoga teacher and certified crystal healer Andi Pacini for Crystal Chakra Healing Yoga. This class combines customized crystal healing and aroma therapy with the powerful practice of yin yoga. By holding passive stretching poses for an extended amount of time, yin allows us to access the deeper layers of our body’s fascia and connective tissue where traumas are stored, allowing for more full and complete emotional release and holistic restoration of healthy energetic flow.

New Moon Manifestation Meditation with Andi Pacini
Friday, August 30th ~ 8pm – 9pm

Monthly: September 18th 7:30pm, October 27th 6pm, November 24th 6:30pm, December 27th 8pm

The New Moon – with all of its darkness and mystery, provides the perfect backdrop for a fresh start. During this time, the sun and moon align with each other, merging the yang, masculine, assertive energy of the sun with the yin, feminine, receptive energy of the moon, creating a powerful invitation to rebalance and start over. Now is the time to examine what’s no longer serving us and call in new intentions for the next 29-day cycle. The New Moon signifies growth. In farming, this is traditionally the time when seeds are planted-the soil is most fertile now as the moon’s lunar gravity pulls water up from the Earth. You can deepen your connection to the Natural World and harness this abundant energy to support your visions and dreams! Getting clear about your intentions helps accelerate your manifestations. The Universe needs to know what you want so that it can give it to you!

In this 60-minute class, we will:
* Discuss the energetic properties of each month’s moon
* Work with essential oils, sage, and crystals to banish negative energy and raise our vibration
* Journal and perform self-inquiry to help bring clarity to our lives
* Create a list of intentions for the month to come
* Meditate on what’s been holding us back and what we would like to manifest

Each attendee will receive a crystal to take home. New Moon Worksheet, Oils and Crystals will be provided but feel free to bring your own journal or tools!
