JULY NEWS

"Let freedom reign. The sun never set on so glorious a human achievement." -Nelson Mandela

My teacher used to challenge us: "do you want to be right, or do you want to be free?" Yoga is all about finding freedom--the freedom to be our true selves--in our bodies, our hearts, our minds. It's not about making a physical shape that is perfect, but rather making an energetic shape using our physical bodies, to find freedom. This month, come remember your true self through asana, music, meditation and community. I look forward to seeing you!
-Nicole

ANAHATA: HEALING THE HEART
WITH KERI MARINO
SATURDAY, JULY 16  1:30-3:30PM

Anahatha means unhurt, unstruck or unbeaten, and also refers to the heart chakra.   In today's world, many of us have learned the art of guarding our hearts and true desires. Fear of vulnerability limits our capacity to fully express ourselves and holds us back. Yoga practice is a wonderful place to dive into your incredible humanity, unique gifts and heart's calling. By tapping into our hearts we unleash the power to manifest the life we want to live, and have more effective communication and connection with others.
 
Join Keri Marino for this unapologetically spiritual workshop, and explore health promoting movement, mind purifying meditation and soul lifting chanting practices. This is a vinyasa fusion class, Slow Flow with an edge, with restorative poses. Open to all. $35

Let the meditative and healing power of live music bring you deeper into your practice. Nicole will guide you through an evening vinyasa practice, while Keegan serenades you with live music and mantras--not to be missed!  

Growing up in a small town of North Carolina, the performing arts became an outlet for Keegan to express herself, and she went on to earn a B.A. in Dance with an emphasis in choreography and music from UNC-Charlotte.  After 20 years of competitive dance, she found yoga and as a path to heal her body and bring about awareness to change negative thought patterns.  Keegan is a certified Kunga Power Vinyasa and Kunga 5Elements Flow teacher with a background in hands-on assisting, the art of sequencing, and Ayurveda and has the highest certification through Yoga Alliance.
