April Showers Us With Opportunity

Spring is in the air and teachers at MSY are ready to bust you out of the winter doldrums!

We’re starting April off with two new class series. On Monday, April 2nd, Stacey Fox introduces us to a “Fresh Perspective.” Every Monday in April, Stacey will encourage us to have some fun while building strength. This all levels series focuses on inversions, which, in more ways than one, offer us a fresh perspective!

Our next series starts the very next day! On Tuesday, April 3rd, Sheray begins her “Happy, Healthy Spine” series. Each Tuesday in April, we’ll work on backbends, heart openers, and twists. This class is an all levels vinyasa flow. We'll work together to create support in the spine using core work, backbends, and heart openers. Twists will also be a component of this series to create space within the vertebrae.

With both these series, you’ll gain the most benefit from attending every week, but you are welcome to just drop in whenever you are able.

Friday, April 6th is our monthly reiki clinic. Judy is back from cross-country tour and anxious to get back to doing what she loves: giving reiki and reading tarot. Suzie and Jen will also be on hand for reiki, and Paula will be offering AromaTouch and iTOVi scans. Paula will also be offering a workshop or two this month, so follow her Facebook page and watch for events.

On Friday the 13th, Jen Sunderlin will offer a timely Mantra & Mudra workshop. A mantra is a word, phrase or sound that is repeated in order to increase mindfulness in meditation. Mudras are hand positions that also increase mindfulness during meditation and can affect the flow of energy in the body. In this workshop, Jen will teach you how to use mantras and mudras in order to derive inspiration, creativity, healing and wellness within your mind and body.

We get a double dose of Jen this weekend, as she is back on Saturday the 14th for another Date Night Yoga & Massage workshop. This couples’ class has been getting rave reviews, so if it’s been on your wish list, register today. This light-hearted partner class is appropriate for all levels and for all types of couples, so if your love isn’t up for it, grab your BFF, your daughter, your mom, or anyone you’d like to have a little fun with. Jen will lead the yoga practice while Paula leads us in a relaxing hand massage. Each couple receives a doTERRA massage oil blend to take home, and afterwards we’ll head down to Joe N Throw for a complimentary beverage of your choice.

If self care is high on your list of priorities, don’t miss Angela’s Body Wisdom free talk on Sunday, April 15th. This class introduces you to the REAL yoga lifestyle: aligning your daily habits with the rhythms of nature. Whether you want to lose weight, eat better, sleep better, function better on a daily basis, reduce common aches and pains, or simply dive deeper into your already healthy lifestyle, you’ll walk away with two habits you can start using right away to begin your shift into feeling better in your body. 

Last month, Sheray traveled to Asheville, North Carolina to submerse herself in Kundalini yoga. This month, she’s bringing Kundalini to us! Kundalini is a dynamic, challenging, and powerful practice designed to uplift the spirit, calm the mind, and bring balance to the entire body. Utilizing “kriyas” (a series of postures, breath, and sound that work toward a specific outcome), Kundalini combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures. In this workshop, Sheray will discuss the history and technologies of Kundalini yoga and guide us through a beginner’s kriya.

Sheray has another treat planned for us as well! Meditate & Paint is back on Saturday, April 21st. This workshop is simply about exploring your own creative energy. You'll be creating your own masterpiece inspired by yoga and meditation. Dress comfortably - no new clothes. Sheray will provide everything that we need for the event. 

Finally, Kindred Vibes will hold sound healing meditations on April 7th, 20th, and 27th. If you haven’t experienced this yet, set an intention to make it to one or more of these this month.
