Traditional Kundalini with Darcy Arthur
Kundalini yoga is a powerful style to effect change in our nervous system. Kundalini yoga uses breath, mantra, asana and meditation to direct energy through the body via the energy channels. If you have been feeling stagnant, Kundalini yoga can shift your energy and increase the flow of Prana. Clinical studies have shown Kundalini yoga and meditation to work deeply on the nervous system and the brain. Kundalini meditations can increase gray matter in the brain and release neurotransmitters to reduce stress and anxiety. This class will help you build physical, mental and spiritual resilience.
Candlelight Restorative Yoga with Darcy Arthur
Restorative yoga can elicit profound relaxation. Life is busy, which can tax our nervous system, making it difficult for our parasympathetic nervous system to keep us balanced. Restorative yoga activates the "relaxation response," which allows our nervous system to come into balance. This class, set in a soothing candlelight environment, focuses on poses that promote relaxation and restoration through the use of props that help relieve the effects of chronic stress. Such effects may include weakness and fatigue brought on by the fast-paced activities of our daily lives. Each class will conclude with a healing guided meditation. Props such as blankets bolsters, straps and blocks will be provided for all participants.
Full Moon Gong Meditation with Darcy Arthur
Amplify the energy of the Full Moon with this celestial sound healing. We will shift our minds, bodies and spirits with the healing vibration of the gong and explore the sacred numerology and astrology of the month. Our ancestors lived by the moon and her phases, these monthly events can strengthen our connection to the cosmos thus restoring our connection to the Earth. After a meditation from the Kundalini tradition, you will lie on your yoga mat, draped in a warm blanket as the waves of sound wash over your body. As our bodies are over 60% water, the sound vibration begins to resonate throughout your body. This has a very healing effect on restoring and strengthening the parasympathetic nervous system as well as moving energy blocks within the body. This creates a flow within you and opens your mind, as your mind opens, limiting thoughts and beliefs in the subconscious mind are released, filling the mind with peace. This peace within you brings the body, mind and spirit into a state of homeostasis. The gong has been used in South Asia for thousands of years for healing. Mat Reservation is required as this event sells out monthly.
