Yoga Philosophy Primer

May 28th 2020
3-4:30PM / $20

Join us as we dive into the study of yoga philosophy!

Yoga philosophy is well described in “The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali,” where yoga is outlined in the eight limbs, or stages, that one should follow to reach freedom or liberation. The eight limbs include the yamas and niyamas (ethics), asanas (physical practice), pranayama (breathing exercises), pratyahara (withdrawal), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation) and samadhi (union with God). Together we will gain a better understanding of how all of these limbs can work like our personal GPS to guide us home to our true nature and true inner JOY!

Yoga Nidra is a workshop to discover how to live a contented life, free of conflict and fear, by opening your mind and body to its true nature and inherent ground of health and well-being. This still yoga practice can help people resolve their pain and suffering by rediscovering their essential wholeness and their interconnectedness with all of life.

meet any and all circumstances you may encounter in life. This practice has also been shown to lower blood pressure, reduce chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and chemical dependency. Bring a blanket / pillow.

Reiki Level 1 – The Gentle Healing Art

COURSE FULL

Sunday, February 23, 2020
1:30 am-4:30 pm
at  Peace Tree Yoga Studio
125 E. State St., Burlington, WI 53105

The gentle art of Reiki draws on universal life energy to benefit people of any age and in any state of health. Reiki comforts, nurtures, and supports the good health and balance of your mind, body, and emotions.

Reiki is a Japanese word meaning universal life energy. It is a gentle method of hands-on healing that taps into the energy referred to as ki in Japan, chi in China, and prana in India. Reiki is not a massage, hypnosis or a tool for diagnosing illness. Reiki is a technique that addresses both chronic and acute conditions, gently and powerfully promoting balance among all the body’s systems and the regenerative processes of the body and mind.

Level 1 Reiki training teaches you how to perform Reiki on yourself and others. It is quite easy to learn, and you will be able to immediately incorporate this into your life. Recommended resource: The Reiki Sourcebook, Bronwen and Frans Steine, Rvsd. Ed 2010

Ruth Rorig is the Reiki Master Trainer. She comes to us trained through the lineage of Dr. Mikao Usui. Ruth has been a Reiki practitioner for 12 years.

Cost for Reiki Level 1 Training is $170.
Work book, healthy snacks, tea, water included

  • Crash Course in Crystals 9:30am ~ Welcome to the magical world of crystals! Have you always been curious about gemstones and how they work? How can they benefit and guide us towards a more balanced way of life? In this lecture, we will share the history, properties, and attributes of these magnificent treasures from the earth.
  • Chakras 101 10:30am ~ What animates our physical body and governs how we move through the world? Our central programming agency, the chakra system, or energetic nervous system does. In this lecture we will begin to recognize how issues we are having in our lives regarding survival, sex, self esteem, love, communication, our vision, and spirit, may be due to a blocked flow of energy. Just as highways have traffic moving in both directions, we too have information from the outer world flowing in, and from the inner world expressing out. If there is a traffic jam in one of our energy centers, there may be a distorted way in which we receive, assimilate, and transmute information. Once we understand the areas of our lives that chakras govern, we can incorporate daily practices that assist us in opening into an optimal flow of energy.
  • Chakra Balancing Yoga 10:30am ~ Practicing yoga naturally opens our energy centers and may explain why we feel SO AMAZING after a practice. In this class, we will explore how different, postures, affirmations and crystals help us to focus on specific chakras that govern certain aspects of our lives. This allows us to experience less difficulty and more ease in our lives.
  • Crystal Meditation 11:30am ~ A short guided meditation with a crystal, allowing you to sense a shift in the way you feel. Getting to know your crystal takes time, awareness. and tapping in on your intuition (yes, we all have it 🙂
  • Crystal Rituals 1:00pm ~ Creating rituals around crystal work is very personal and can make the experience even more powerful and dynamic. Ritualizing also increases mindfulness and is a wonderful self-care practice that enhances our overall vitality. Join us to empower your self-healing journey! We explore 6 simple ways to start incorporating beautiful gemstones into our everyday lives.
  • Crystal Grids 2:00pm ~ In our Crystal Grids workshop you will learn how to make a grid incorporating sacred geometry. Crystal grids are a beautiful way to use our creative energy to manifest. Discover which crystals to use and where you should place them in your grid, depending on your desired outcome. We will be connecting to the importance of intention (sankalpa) and how to activate your grid in a way that feels meaningful and powerful to you.
  • Mala Making 3:00pm ~ Mala beads have traditionally been used in many religions and in yoga and meditation practices. Enjoy creating a wrist mala or intentional piece of jewelry that will assist you on your personal journey. Choose genuine crystal beads that have meaning and purpose or choose for their beauty. We will touch on how to use your wrist mala for mediation or as a simple centering device.
