Yoga for the Immune System
Hosted by Mary Veal
AVAILABLE FOR DIGITAL PURCHASE
Workshop video and 4 page handout
Venmo @Mary-Veal $15 along with your email address

Yoga is one of the most effective ways to regulate and boost immunity through its known ability to reduce stress, increase blood flow and improve digestion. Yoga helps lower stress hormones that compromise the immune system, while also conditioning the lungs and respiratory tract, stimulating the lymphatic system to oust toxins from the body and bringing oxygenated blood to organs to ensure their optimal function.   We will start with a discussion of the practices that help to boost and balance the immune system followed by an asana class including beneficial poses, pranayama and meditation. Learn what the Immune System is, the research that proves yoga improves it and the specific practices that work and why.

CHAKRA HEALING HAPPY HOUR with Andi Pacini
Saturday, April 18th ~ 4pm
$25

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.

ECSTATIC DANCE with MARIANNE BAUM
Saturday, April 18th – 7:30pm – 9pm
Sliding scale investment: $10 – $20 (pay on arrival)

Ecstatic dance is a fast and easy way to get out of your mind and connect with your body. Most of us remember a time in our life where moving to the music simply felt so good.  If you are a little shy to start, or think you can’t dance, know that there is no choreography to follow. The rhythms of the eclectic music will help you to get out of your head and become one with your body. Green Tara offers a beautiful dim lit and safe space where you can feel free to move any way you want and rest when you need it.  You will hear occasional cues for simple movements, breaths and sounds which are optional yet may help you to find a deeper level of your dance.

Just dance like nobody’s watching…

Ecstatic dance flows freely and brings us together as one beautiful tribe. We end with Shavasana.  Afterwards you are offered some time to socialize with others while you enjoy our complimentary Tea and snacks.  This is a simple fun activity for every age or gender, body type or fitness level. You can come by yourself or bring a friend, family or partner. Come as you are, dress comfortable. Bring Water.

New Moon Manifestation Meditation with Andi Pacini
Sunday, April 26th ~ 6:30pm
$20

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!
