JUNE WORKSHOPS & EVENTS

 

THE ART OF VINYASA

WITH  NICOLE NICHOLS

SATURDAY, JUNE 6TH, 1:30-3:30PM


Join Nicole Nichols for a guided break-down of the essence of conscious flow, and turn your practice into a fully embodied meditation in motion. Establish a connection to the Earths that is fluid, lucid, and light--
both on and off the mat.

Vinyasa is a highly sophisticated practice, involving multiple techniques. Explore the components of vinyasa, including optimal breathing, how to harness inner energy (prana), and how to link breath with well-aligned movement and intention through an asana sequence. Discover the magic in the moments between the moments, through the art of elegant transitions. Transform your everyday practice into an extraordinary experience! 

All levels welcome--whether you are a seasoned practitioner or newer to vinyasa, this workshop will give you the tools you need to cultivate grace and precision in your flow practice, and make it poetry in motion.

YOGA & GONG BATH
WITH  NICOLE NICHOLS & ALISHA NISSENFELD
FRIDAY, JUNE 12TH 6:15-7:45PM

Join Nicole Nichols and Alisha Nissenfeld for a class featuring chanting, meditation, vinyasa flow, and culminating in a 20-minute extended savasana with a gong bath---aaaaahhhhhh.


 Of all the instruments used in sound healing, the Gong is perhaps the most powerful, and the most mysterious. Gong Meditations, also called Gong Baths, are deeply nourishing and restorative. Through the intense vibrations of the sound, the body and mind are able to relax and surrender to the healing energies of the Gong. The Gong vibrates at the same frequency as the body, allowing students to experience deep healing on all levels of being as vibrations pass over and through them--leaving them feeling balanced, peaceful, and light.


 During this healing and rejuvenating experience, students will relax comfortably with bolsters and blankets. No water is used in a gong bath; just enjoy the experience of vibrations washing over you!


 Regular class pricing applies, free for first time students.

YOGA WITH LIVE MUSIC: TABLA 

WITH
NICOLE NICHOLS & ISHWIN DEMBLA

FRIDAY, JUNE 19TH 6:15-7:45PM

 

Join Nicole Nichols for an open-level practice set to the world beats of the tabla, played live by Ishwin Dembla. Tabla is a versatile instrument widely used in classical Indian music, kirtans and folk music. The vibrations of the instrument provide a soulful experience and deep relaxation. The Yogi can experience and appreciate the different sounds the instrument is capable of producing, and the unique combination of Yoga with tabla accompaniment can aid in stress relief, sense of accomplishment and calmness. Enjoy Yoga on a completely different level!


 Ishwin Dembla is an accomplished Tabla player based in the Triangle area, with over 20 years of performance experience. He has studied Tabla under the guidance of several masters, namely Ustad Zakir Hussain, Ustad Shabbir Nisar and Pandit Nayan Ghosh. He has performed with numerous artists as an accompanist and is also a Tabla solo artist focusing in the Punjab and Farrukabad styles of Tabla playing.
