October at MSY!

As I sit here in my office writing to you, I can glance out the window and see green leaves turning yellow and brown on the trees and some fallen leaves on the ground and floating in the pond. But there’s no need to lament the passing of summer when there are so many great things happening at Main Street Yoga!

Although the temperatures are still very summerlike, my AccuWeather app tells me that’s about to change (drastically) on Friday. That timing is perfect as I start to prepare for my second annual “Autumn Reset,” a community-supported Ayurvedic cleanse designed to help us release the heat of summer so that we can accomplish the deep immune building that needs to happen in the cooler months. During the cleanse, you’ll have plenty of support from me and the members of Body Wisdom through online meetings and our Facebook group. If you’re wondering whether the cleanse is for you, check out “Signs You Could Use a Cleanse.” I hope you’ll join us!

Welcome the cooler weather on Friday at our Relax & Recharge Open House. This month, Stacey Fox and Blaine Oswald will be offering their reiki and tarot services along with Jen and Paula. Recharge with a Reiki session, relax while enjoying an AromaTouch Hand Technique, and gain insight with a Tarot reading. Walk in between 5:00pm-7:00pm and bring a friend! This Open House is donation based, suggested donation $20 or more. Begin the month refreshed and renewed! 

The mid-month weekend is packed with amazing offerings at the studio! Sharon Hovland will kick it off with her Singing Bowls Sound Bath on Friday, the 18th. Experience the interweaving tones, and rich harmonics produced by the Tibetan singing bowls. The vibration of the bowls create a beautiful calming sound to lull you into relaxation. After arising, stand in Sharon's large bowl as she plays and experience a sound bath all your own! If you have a yoga mat, please bring it with you along with anything else you may need to make yourself comfortable. $20 cash for adults, one child 12 or under free with adult.

Jen Sunderlin and Paula Hatten are planning a very special Saturday afternoon on the 19th with their “Sweetest Day AromaTouch and Reiki Special.” Schedule a session with your love and receive a complimentary rollerball to make your day the sweetest! Let Paula or Jennifer assist you into relaxation using essential oils or energy balancing, melting your stress away, allowing you to deeply relax! After purchasing your ticket, they will contact you to schedule an appointment time!

I am super excited to announce a brand new offering from Jen Sunderlin: Beyond Quantum Healing. Jen recently completed the Beyond Quantum Healing hypnosis course, and she is elated to be able to offer this opportunity to explore the multidimensional self to gain clarity, purpose, and healing. Beyond Quantum Healing hypnosis allows the practitioner to utilize additional modalities, such as Reiki, during the hypnosis creating a session that is optimal for each person.  During the hypnosis, you will work with the Higher Self to bring all aspects of the Self into alignment.

As a sample of what a Beyond Quantum Healing private session might hold, Jen is offering Soul Journey – A Group Hypnosis Travel Through Time on Saturday, October 19th at 6pm. Embark on an amazing journey of the soul! Connect with your Higher Self to adventure to a past life, progress to a future life, and then encounter your spirit guide! Hypnosis is a simple process that will take a person into a deep relaxed state. Once there, hypnosis rejuvenates the brain’s chemistry, giving rise to a calmer state of mind lasting long after you awaken. You will be aware of your experience as it is happening while in a deep state of relaxation. The only requirement is an open mind and heart! Bring a notebook and yoga mat if you have one.

Rounding out the weekend, Angela is offering Hands-On Assisting and Adjusting for yoga teachers. Designed to help the RYT200 feel more confident in offering hands-on assists and adjustments, participants will learn the difference between assists and adjustments as well as when, why and how to offer them. We'll discuss qualities of touch, practice hand positions, and learn how to keep our own bodies safe and aligned while offering assistance to our students. Finally, we will learn and practice specific feel-good assists and alignment-based adjustments for the most common yoga postures. Students enrolled in a 200-hour yoga teacher training are also welcome.

On the last weekend of the month, Jen is offering Illuminated Reiki 3 Master Practitioner Training. Take what you have learned in your Reiki 1 & 2 practice even further, and become attuned to the Reiki Level 3 Master Practitioner energy in this immersive weekend! You will learn the Usui system of natural healing in addition to modern skills, evolutionary upgrade techniques, the Master symbols, as well as additional tools and exercises to expand your Reiki practice. The weekend will include instruction and table practice, empowering your capabilities and understanding! Email Jennifer with questions or if you'd prefer PayPal send a message first to illuminationhealing8@gmail.com. If you have yet to attend a Reiki training, Jen will be offering Illuminated Reiki 1 on November 16th.

One last bit of exciting news! Next November (2020) I’ll be leading a yoga retreat in Costa Rica! I hope you'll consider joining me. I guarantee it will be relaxing, inspiring, and fun. Register now to take advantage of $300 off the cost of shared accommodations (you can request a roommate). A $350 deposit saves your spot and locks in your discounted rate. 

As the temperatures continue to drop, I hope we’ll find more of you dropping in to our regularly scheduled classes more regularly. ;)

See you at the studio!
