Ecstatic Sanctuary
Most Thursdays in 2017
7pm-9pm
$12-$15

Ecstatic Dance is a free-form, non-structured dance where you can move freely without judgment or concern.  This is the dance you dance when nobody is watching!  It develops a direct body-spirit connection, letting your inner guide be the teacher as it works through the body.  It’s about being present and discovering the magic of your own dance.  Benefits of ecstatic dance are connecting to spirit, experiencing joy, increasing vitality, and releasing stress and unneeded energies. 

The hour and a half experience starts with a gentle warm-up, followed by an opening guided meditation, and then the dance begins.  Our dance is lightly facilitated with invitations to explore movement with specific areas of the body.  The compelling music wave progresses through ancient world rhythms woven together to honour our spiritual connection to Source.  As the music slows, you are guided to lie in stillness, resting in a Shavasana pose.  After a silent period, we come back together for a closing circle and meditation.  At that point participants are free to share their unique experience with the group before concluding with a healing prayer for the world.

Ecstatic Dance is easy.  No dance experience is necessary.  There is no wrong way to dance.  This is a perfect opportunity for those who think they “can’t dance” as well as for experienced dancers alike.  Ecstatic Dance provides an environment without observers or conversation, where anyone can feel safe to try new things and intuitively guided types of body movement. 

Join us on any one of these Thursdays in 2017:

March 2nd, March 30th, April 6th, April 27th, May 11th, June 1st, July 6th, July 13th, August 3rd, Aug 10th, Sept 7th, Sep 14th, Oct 5th. Oct 19th , Nov 2nd, Nov 16th , Dec 7th, Dec 21st

Kundalini Yoga
Kundalini Yoga, a sacred science which is over 5,000 years old, is a comprehensive technology ideally suited to today’s world. Through asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), mantra, mudras and meditation Kundalini Yoga strengthens the nervous system, balances the glandular system, quiets the mind and dramatically enhances intuition. Often called the Yoga of Awareness, the primary goal is to awaken Kundalini energy, the psycho-energetic force that leads to transformation and spiritual elevation. This class incorporates rhythmic movements in conjunction with deep stretches, powerful breathing techniques, meditations and mantras. You will feel results quickly, as Kundalini Yoga increases flexibility, energizes the mind and thoroughly relaxes the body. Classes are based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, who brought this powerful technology to the West because he felt that we would desperately need such a powerful practice to cope with the changing times. As we are deeply immersed in those times now, this yoga is a gift that will help you focus your mind, relax your body and elevate your spirit. All levels are welcome!

Showing others a path and a method to take ownership of their wellness is one of the most fulfilling, deepest joys in his life.


Class Description
"Nei Gong" refers to the Skills and Methods used in those traditional Chinese martial arts labeled as "Internal Ways," or "Nei Jia."
Awareness, Breath, Stillness, and gentle Movement are the primary doors we will use in this class to deepen our understanding of what makes the "Internal" martial arts different from those labeled as "External."
Principles drawn from the main Internal Kung Fu styles- Tai Chi, Bagua, and HsingYi- will all be employed in this exploratory process. We will learn ways of Rooting, Relaxing, and Expanding which are common to all of the Nei Jia systems of China. We will also practice several of the most effective forms of self-care and preventative medicine on Earth, originating over 4000 years ago in the high period of Taoism. 

We focus on the feeling-state and the Principles which make all of the forms meaningful, so any student can benefit from this practice whether it's day 1 or day 10,000. Self-defense, Self-care, and Self-liberation all in one elegant system. Come feel the flow for yourself.
