Winter Solstice Shamanic Sound Healing
2 hr event
SUN 12/20 6:30-8:30 pm
Cost: $25 prior to 12/13, $30 after
As we approach the longest nights of the year, the magical time that in German is called the “hallowed nights”, you are invited to a Winter Solstice Shamanic Sound Healing event with Dagmar.
Dagmar will lead you through a sound journey to help release blocks and discordant energies, restore a sense of wholeness and well-being and connect you with your own inner guidance. Through the sound of her voice, shamanic tools and instruments such as drums, rattles and singing bowls, rituals unfold that awaken your heart’s intelligence and serve as a gateway to transformation and awareness.
Dagmar, who moved to Portland from Germany 7 years ago, is a gifted sound and energy healer. She draws her inspiration not only from her European roots, but from a universal and multidimensional understanding. Through the sound of her voice, shamanic tools and instruments such as drums, rattles and singing bowls, rituals unfold that awaken your heart’s intelligence and serve as a gateway to transformation and awareness.
NEW Classes coming up in January!
Deep Clarity Yoga
TUE 7:30-9 pm
A great relaxing class for the ones of you that can’t make an earlier time.
Bring yourself into a deep and abiding sense of bliss and renewal at the end of your day.
Allow masterful poses, dynamic breathing, and inner vision to soak your being with the graceful experience you crave and turn your night time into the deep rest you deserve.
To give you more incentive to come to class, Stasia’s class will be $5 drop in for the entire month of January!
WED 7:15-9 pm
Todd’s finally teaching BLIS Yoga at nights, so all of you that love his classes but don’t like to get up early, can now come to this one!
It’s a little longer too, so you can go straight to bed when you get home…
Typically starts with a 20-30 minute guided meditation, breathing, and sounding followed by some gentle movements to warm up.
Often we’ll stay on the floor for most of the class, but each class is different and we may find ourselves on the bars. We use a lot of props, as they lend and offer support in a wider range of movement possibilities.
Many, if not most of the movements and poses may are different from what you may have learned in more classic hatha and vinyasa style classes.
More at BLIS Yoga.
Classical Hatha Yoga
FRI 5:45-7 pm
Adriana will be taking over the Friday night slot with a new Classical Hatha Yoga class.
Learn to focus through the classical hatha yoga sun salutations and other flowing vinyasas, which link breath with movement as well as the classical hatha yoga asanas (postures).
Classes are open to all levels, however you are encouraged to work at your own pace.
Check out the full description on the class schedule page. Adriana’s class will also be $5 drop in for the entire month of January!
Prenatal Belly Dance & Yoga
SUN 12-1:15 pm
Finally, another option for the moms-to-be that love to come to yoga on Saturday!
Adriana is offering bellydance and yoga for pregnant women of all levels and in any trimester.
With ancient roots in fertility rites and goddess worship, it has deep spiritual significance for women and has undergone many cultural migrations; an ever-changing and evolving art.
No prior belly dance or yoga experience. Come and have fun!
This class w/Adriana will also be $5 drop in for the entire month of January!
