Love Serve Meditate Realize

Friday, Jan 27, 2012 Yoga & Meditation Class

We’ve only been offering our De-Stress with Yoga & Meditation class for about two months, but it’s already become our most popular class. The class combines asanas with a different meditation technique each week. Thus far, we’ve explored sitting in lotus, walking meditation, using the crystal bowl to open the third eye, and staring at a candle flame. Afterwards, we share our experiences over tea.

Marydale always stresses that the true purpose of yoga is to prepare the body to sit in meditation. Exploring the various meditation techniques following our asana practice has shown us how much easier it is to enter a meditative state after doing yoga. Students have reported deeper and more profound meditations in the class than they’ve ever had before.

Due to the popularity of this class, we’ve decided to add another De-Stress with Yoga & Meditation class to our schedule on Monday nights from 7:00-8:30 pm. This class will replace the former Daily Practice class from 7:00-8:15 pm (Yoga & Meditation is a slightly longer class). We hope you’ll join us in one or both of these classes to strengthen your body, de-stress, and connect with your inner guidance. Namaste.

Monday, Jan 16, 2012 Manifestation Workshop, Part 1

Our Manifestation Workshop this past Saturday was an illuminating and uplifting experience for all who attended. Marydale led an in-depth discussion of the book Ask and It Is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks (The Teachings of Abraham), going over the processes presented in the book for releasing resistance and lining up with the things we want to manifest in our lives. These things are not just “things”, like money, cars, or jewels, but fulfilling work, loving relationships, healthy bodies, and inner peace.

Everyone participated enthusiastically with questions, examples, and personal stories of synchronous events and miraculous manifestations in their own lives. The questions asked by participants were thoughtful and sometimes difficult, but Marydale answered them all in her inimitable way, leading to profound discussions and insights. Through practicing the various processes, areas of resistance were uncovered and participants began to get a clearer picture of what it is they really want to create in their lives.

The scope of the information was such that we were only able to cover half of the processes in the book, so, by unanimous request, we will be conducting a follow-up workshop on Sunday, February 12th from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. If you missed our first Manifestation Workshop, you won’t want to miss Part 2. You can register online or at the studio, but don’t wait – the workshop is already filling up.

Thank you to all of our Manifestation Workshop participants for an amazing workshop. See you in February!
