July at MSY!

We may be in the middle of a heat wave, but the studio is nice and cool and there are plenty of ways to chill out at MSY in July. If you need more suggestions on how to keep cool, check out my last blog post, “How to Thrive in Summer with Ayurveda.”

Before I start gushing about all of our special events this month, I’d like to point your attention to a new class. In mid-June, we added a Morning Flow class on Wednesdays at 9 am. The response has been great! Start the day with some mind/body integration. We start slowly with a few yin poses and a gentle warm-up, then work our way into an all-levels flow that will leave you feeling aligned and energized. Check it out on July 4th. That will be our only class on Independence Day.

Now on to our special events!

We kick off July on First Friday with our Relax & Recharge Open House. Take some well-deserved time for yourself! Bring a friend who would love to relax with you! Come in anytime between 5pm - 7pm. Recharge during a Reiki session; relax while enjoying the DoTerra Aromatouch hand technique, or gain insight with a Tarot card reading! This Open House is donation based. We look forward to seeing you there!

On Saturday, July 7th, Sheray will offer “Exploring Kundalini” at 8am. Kundalini yoga is known as the yoga of awareness. It’s a dynamic, challenging, and powerful tool that is designed to help you make the changes necessary in your life to reach true inner peace. Kundalini yoga uplifts the spirit, calms the mind, and brings balance to the entire body.

On Sunday, July 8th at 6pm, I’m teaming up with Kindred Vibes and Paula Hatten for another two-hour Pure Bliss Restorative Yoga This is a full sensory immersion experience that includes crystal singing bowls, reiki, massage, and aromatherapy. End your weekend in a state of pure bliss! Space is limited. We have 4 spots left. Register today!

Paula Hatten is taking over MSY on Wednesday, July 11th at 7pm for a special “I Am Fabulous” class. Come learn how to use essential oils to release blocked emotions and start living your best life. Paula will guide you through a series of essential oil applications to help you release emotions. Then choose one of two rollerballs to go home with to continue your emotional journey. Register on Paula’s SquareUp page.

Bring the kids to MSY on Saturday, July 14th for Superhero Yoga and Rollerball! Jen Sunderlin and Paula Hatten are planning a fun kids Superhero yoga and essential oil rollerball event! The kids will have a blast exploring their superpowers in superhero yoga, then they’ll learn how to enhance their superpowers using a custom essential oil rollerball that they create at the end of class! Purchasing a ticket is valid for one child and one rollerball, additional rollerballs will be available for sale during the event. Pre-register online.

It is with great excitement that I announce that MSY yoga teacher, Jen Sunderlin, will begin offering Reiki training on July 28th at the studio! Reiki is a safe and effective energy modality that is beneficial to everyone. Reiki re-balances the energy field that exists in and around our bodies. A balanced energy field assists in healing on many levels. Learn the healing practice of Reiki in this Illuminated Reiki Level 1 training. Open your energy channels allowing universal energy to flow more deeply and freely through you. You will learn self-Reiki, hand placements, about the chakras, meditations, and receive the Reiki level 1 attunement and certification. Pre-registration is required. If you have questions about this training email Jen at illuminationhealing8@gmail.com.

Kindred Vibes will be in the studio for Crystal Reiki Sound Healing on July 13th, 20th, and 27th! Keep an eye on our calendar and Facebook pages for more info.

Finally, my next round of Body Wisdom starts on July 10th. I buckled down in June and got myself fully certified as a yoga health coach! Yoga health coaching combines the ancient wisdom of yoga and Ayurveda with modern behavioral science, group support, and good old fashioned common sense. If you’re ready to uplevel your physical and mental wellbeing, if you’re ready to commit to better self care, schedule a health strategy session with me this week. If you’ve already had a strategy session and you want to talk about enrollment, schedule a 20 minute conversation with me this week.

See you in the studio!
