Description

Voice of Change! January 14th from 1-4 pm

Do you yearn to stand in your power and speak your truth? ? Is it time to listen to the poetry of your own soul and to experience the freedom of your authentic voice? Are you ready to unlock your creative potential and to reclaim your self expression?

Join Suzanne for this ecstatic mind/body immersion into the heart of soulful self-expression and discover your ability to live, express and embody your truth. This practice will combine yoga asanas with sound healing, chanting and singing, ecstatic movement, and deep ritual; leading you to access your own true voice and embodied creativity. We will break free from the stifling grip of the inner critic, heal deep seated patterns that have kept us silent and focus on freeing the natural voice. As we find and experience the power of our individual voices we will sing together to create joyful community that rises in song.

You will learn:

*how to unlock your creative potential and find the self-expression that fits you best


* to understand and heal the core traumas that keep you protected but shut down


* to understand the science of sound healing as well as how to use your own voice as a tool for empowerment


* how the basic energy system of the body works and how to unlock the 5th chakra for purification & liberation


* how to reclaim your voice from the situations & people that forced you to hide your authentic voice


* how to remove blocks to power & confidence


*how to use words and songs to awaken, heal, and build community


This workshop is open to all. You do not need any previous vocal or yoga experience to participate.

The Art of Ritual: March 31st from 1-4 pm

In our modern world, it is often easier to isolate and disconnect rather than cultivate practices of community. Meanwhile a widespread hunger for experiences of the sacred in daily life becomes more and more clear. Are you ready to deepen your connection to the sacred? Are you longing to integrate the tools of the sacred arts into your daily life? Are you ready to give your inner critic a vacation and explore the wildness within? Ready to release the dusty or damaging stories that keep you from unleashing your authentic self expression?

Ritual asks us to become our own spiritual authority and, especially when combined with yoga, can be a transformative tool that awakens and inspires. Modern, co-creative ritual can bring ancient wisdoms back into our busy daily lives in meaningful, deeply felt, and healing ways. It is an act of courage, hope, and artistry.

In this workshop we will discuss the history of ritual from ancient cultures and its evolution through the modern lens of yoga philosophy. We will then learn practical and powerful ritual skills, including grounding and centering, creating a sacred container, and catalyzing transformational practices that can be incorporated into your daily practice, enhance your teaching and help to build conscious community.

We will create personal and collective rituals and cultivate the following the sacred skills:

Creating a sacred container or space for personal and group transformation/celebration.
Grounding and centering as tools for sacred leadership
Using ritual to transform stagnant patterns
Developing creative devotional practices
Working with diety, myth and storytelling

Join Suzanne for a juicy fusion of flow yoga, ecstatic movement, soulful singing, and rituals of reconnection.
