Functional Yoga for Scapular & Thoracic Mobility
with Joi Dupre
Saturday, July 20th ~ 12pm – 1:30pm
Good Movement means that the shoulder blades must be able to both glide along, and settle on, the ribcage. The thoracic spine and ribcage are super important for healthy movement. In normal movement and posture, we want the scapula to be sitting comfortably just about an inch away from the spine – not far away from midline, which happens if you hunch forward.
During this workshop, you will learn functional movement (movement that is anatomically and bio-mechanically sound) that will assist the scapula in moving freely as well as creating stabilization. We will then bring that functional movement into yoga postures. Sometimes, Yoga can make you feel like you are supposed to just sink into the structures of your body. It is really important to do everything from a place of strength and readiness. We want to move at the scapula with functional meaning – not just swing our extremities wildly and without grace. By not practicing with this awareness, you increase the risk of shoulder impingement and other injuries.
Your body is a hydraulic, energetic system when it is aligned and balanced. These small shifts will create incredible shifts in the way you move and carry yourself. Let’s take that sense and intention to bring more movement and joy into our life and then share it with all beings everywhere.

Do you find yourself feeling stuck, sad, angry, uninspired, frustrated, heavy, out of control or out of touch?

This class combines customized crystal healing and aroma therapy with the powerful practice of yin yoga.

New Moon Manifestation Meditation with Andi Pacini

Monthly: August 30th 8pm, 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!
