The Psoas Muscle Part 2

December 9th 12:30 to 2:00

with Claire

$25

This workshop is a continuation of The Psoas Muscle In You. Here we'll go deeper in exploring ways to relax, open and tone this mighty muscle. We'll also work with our own personal connection to our Psoas and its affect on your breathing, instinct and emotions. Although the first class is not a requirement we ask you have an understanding of the psoas, its location, function, etc.

As a reminder the psoas is a deep muscle that attaches to the thoracic and lumbar spine, the inside of the pelvis and the thigh. It is the only muscle connecting the spine to the thigh and is key in maintaining stability while stationary and in motion. It is the primal messenger of the central nervous system controlling our fight/flight response, breathing, "gut instinct" and referred to Easy to as the muscle of the soul. Releasing tension in this muscle and engaging it properly can have far reaching results in reducing pain, stress and wear on the hips, knees, ankles and spine. While improving fluidity in movement, pelvic function, digestion and an overall sense of well being.

Claire has studied the anatomy, physiology and metaphysical connection of the pelvis for 20 years. Her inquiry continues to unfold new ideas and her passion in sharing is expressed in her teaching.

Class is limited to 10 people so preregistration is required.

Winter Solstice Celebration

December 20th 7:00 to 8:30ish

with Katie Grace and Dee

$30.

Early nightfall, crisp mornings, the sharp silhouette of leaf-bare branches. These are the familiar signs of the onset of winter. Short days and long nights beckon us within to rest, renew and contemplate the cycles of nature. Winter’s harsh cold draws us together around the fire to seek the warmth of a supportive community, while bright stars in the inky darkness inspire us to think of ourselves as a unique and important aspect of the cyclical order of the cosmos. Yet, despite nature’s invitation to renewal, we somehow get drawn in the opposite direction and become hyper-busy and externally focused. We succumb to the commercial swirl of “the holidays” where we shop ‘til we drop, eat and drink ‘til we’re stuffed and overbook our schedules ‘til we’re cross and cranky.

This year, give yourself the gift of a more intuitive, simpler, and natural holiday season. Tune into the magic and beauty of winter and to the subtle changes and cycles in your personal life. This is an opportunity to reverently recollect the year past and mindfully chart a positive path forward for the Sun’s return in the year ahead.

A special fire ceremony and solstice ritual will help you embrace the season with an attitude of renewal, receptiveness and appreciation. This year, choose to make winter a time of feeding your spirit and nurturing your soul, not just emptying your bank account and fraying your nerves.

Shining the Light on Your Sun Sign

January 26th 6:00 to 8:00 pm

with Marissa Winters


$30

My studies in astrology are fascinating….I have come to the firm conclusion that at the moment of birth an individual takes on the characteristic state of the Universe for that moment in time.” – C.G. Jung

Jung was on to something.Astrology is a tool which gives insight into why people do what they do. This understanding makes relating to and communicating with the important “others” in your life much easier. So often, it’s not what you say but how you say it that makes all the difference.

We’ll cover the characteristics of each sign, and how the Sun’s placement influences the way a person views and interacts with the world. Knowing this can empower you to connect with the important “others” in your life so you can be better heard and understood.

The workshop will be presented by Marissa Winters, a long time practitioner and student of astrology.
