FLOWER CROWN AND YOGA FLOW
JULY 31, WEDNESDAY 6:30pm-9:00pm
Why do we love flower crowns so gosh-darn much? Is it the fact that it’s almost impossible not to feel like a god or goddess, fairy or king or queen when wearing one? Is it because the fresh flowers take us back to southern summers picking clovers in the grass? Or is it because flower crowns are almost always indicative of people who are ready to get-down and have a good time? It’s probably all of those things and more.
Come blossom with us! Unleash your inner flower child at All Dahlia’d Up Flower Farm for a summer Wednesday evening of zen, beauty and whimsy. The night will begin with creating the ultimate summer flower crown with the guidance of the flower farm owner, Misty Vanderweele. The workshop will be followed by a graceful yoga flow with Sonia Auld to channel our inner beauty and ignite creativity through a one hour gentle goddess flow. We’ll close with a mini tour of the beautiful All Dahlia’d Up Flower Farm. We are going to add an Ecstatic dance at the end of this celebration. Ecstatic dance is a free form conscious dance where movement and creativity breaks out. We will finalize details as we get closer to the event!
This evening welcomes all-levels. Bring your friends, kids, or family and leave flourishing from within. Allow yourself to blossom into the evening of beauty and bliss.
All materials including fresh flowers and supplies to make your flower crown are included. No drop ins make sure to pre-register, we are capping participants to a limited number.
Bring your own mat, water and towel.
Pre-Register by June 30 -$65
After June 30- $80
Spring Equinox Awakening
March 23rd, Saturday 4:00-5:30pm
Spring cleaning” isn’t limited to your closets! It’s also time for renewal and rebirth. It’s time for planting seeds to nurture, and to bear witness to the unending cycle of growth and change. The transitional change from winter to spring is the season of opportunity – To let go of the things that aren’t serving any purpose in your life and grounding yourself in those things that do.
I invite you to join us for an evening of practice that will clear you mind and spirit. You will leave feeling empowered, grounded and dedicated to your intentions over your life.
we will begin our practice at 4:00 PM sharp. As we settle onto our mats, the practice will start with a cleansing breathing exercise (Pranayama *explanation below)) followed by a vibrant Vinyasa flow. Each posture and salutation will give you the opportunity to Let GO of the things that aren’t serving a purpose in your life anymore and make room for what does. We will close our practice with a beautiful Yoga-Nidra meditation (*explanation below) that will allow you to visualize those intentions you are inviting into your life.
*Pranayama is the formal practice of controlling the breath, which is the source of our prana, or vital life force.
*Yoga nidra or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “going-to-sleep” stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions.

40-DAY Yoga Practice Immersion
April 1 to May 10, EVERY DAY 5:45am-6:30am
6 people, 40 days
Looking for 6 people to spend 40 days of transformation together.
The 40-Day Transformation is a practical program that will spark radical change in you and your life! What makes this program different is that you focus beyond the external changes of your body and transform from within. Experience immersion with your personal yoga practice.
If your craving a deeper connection to yourself and the divine, one way to cultivate it is through a daily practice. Yogis have been getting up before sunrise to do their sadhana (daily practice) because the time of day is considered to be sacred and infused with a sense of stillness and quietude. A daily sadhana can improve your health and energy, unblock your creativity, and help you tap into your intuition so that you can live “from a more authentic place.”
By the end of this 40-Day Transformation, you will develop your own personal yoga and meditation practice that will stick.
