Breathwork Meditation

with April Linson

Friday, March 6
7:00pm - 9:00pm

Breathwork Healing is a powerful meditation tool, utilizing a specific 2 part breathwork technique (taught by David Elliott), to facilitate a release of stuck energy, thought patterns and emotional baggage. With this guided breath meditation, memories, deep rooted belief systems (created or passed down), stress, trauma, loss, grief, fear, anxiety, and whatever else is hiding in the body, can find it’s way to the surface and into our awareness which begins the process of healing. Once we are freed up in the areas that have been blocked off or weighed down we can begin to experience deeper levels of joy and love, new-found creativity and healthy ways of self-love and self-expression.

 

Within a group dynamic this work takes on a powerful energy, creating a space of safety, unity, and the opportunity to grow in community. Through reaching into the higher levels of consciousness, releasing stuck energy and blocked emotions, you will leave feeling lighter and brighter.

Taking Refuge in the Divine: A Kirtan

with Angela Cays

Sunday, March 22
1:30pm - 3:30pm

When we chant the sacred sounds of the Divine, connecting to the energies of Light and Love, we feel a holding and a comfort, which is the practice of taking refuge. We can simply celebrate the knowing and embrace of this light and love; or perhaps, we need to feel the transformation out of a darker moment or place into the light via the holding of this unconditional love.

Join us for an afternoon of taking refuge in the vibrations of the sacred sounds of the Divine, the shared energy of our amazing community, and the embodied dharma of light and love.

Angela will weave together the chanting of mantras, brief readings to highlight the dharma, and periods of meditative silence to create an afternoon of refuge, healing, and inspiration.

Cost: $30 Pre-Registration before March 15/$40 Thereafter

108 Sun Salutations for Peace

with Stephen Tortorello

Saturday, April 4
12:00pm

The Sun Salutation unites body, mind and breath in a rhythmic flow that exemplifies meditation in motion. When committing to this already transformative practice for an extended period of time, we increase the potential for creating a profound shift.

Renowned mathematicians of Vedic culture viewed the number 108 as sacred, a representation of the wholeness of existence. Yogis have always used this number, or a derivation of it, to chant or meditate. We will continue in this tradition, offering the challenge of 108 sun salutations  as a means to calm the mind, open the heart and experience inner peace. When able to do so on the mat, we find it easier to access when encountering difficult scenarios off the mat as well.

Each action we take toward developing our own inner peace, in turn allows us to introduce that peace into the world.

***After registering, please email the studio at info@highlandyoga.com to let us know what size tank top you would like.

Cost: $35 (includes commemorative shirt when registering by March 14)

Reiki Level 1 Training

with Angela Cays

New date added!
Sunday, April 19
12:00pm - 6:30pm
 

Reiki is a beautiful, self-empowering healing practice that can be harnessed and practiced by everyone. Reiki promotes deep relaxation, assists in the body's natural healing processes, and develops emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. 

 

In this training, you will learn the history of Reiki, be attuned to the Reiki energy, and learn hand positions for self-treatment and for treating others. During the training, you will practice hands-on with your classmates. You will also receive a comprehensive manual and ongoing support.

 

Please bring a lunch or snack, plenty of water to drink, and anything else you’ll need to care for yourself.

 

Pre-registration is required. Limited to 6 participants.

 

Angela Cays has been working towards transforming suffering and empowering others for decades as a high school math teacher and tutor; licensed professional counselor (LPC); and as a yoga instructor since the fall of 2006. She guides her students to reveal light and shadow, to become more fully embodied and aware of all layers of our being (koshas); to awaken intuition, life force energy (prana), and touch moments of deep peace as well as great expansion.   

Her continued education as a counselor and yoga instructor led her deeper into the subtle body through learning modules in her advanced yoga teacher training with Sheryl and Neil Edsall at Naturally Yoga in Glen Rock, NJ and trainings at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Lenox, MA on Psychotherapy and Spirituality, as well as Psychology of the Chakras, Mind Body Integration, and Creating on Purpose with Anodea Judith.  Having a spark of curiosity about Reiki when she first started taking yoga classes, it was about 20 years later, as a continuation of studying and working with the subtle body, she received her Level I, Level II and Reiki Master attunements from her beloved teacher, Sheryl Edsall, along with the radiant Eileen Alexander.  

Angela benefits deeply from practicing Reiki for self-care in addition to sharing this healing modality with others.  Through many years of studying and teaching yoga, and receiving the Reiki attunements, she continues to develop a more heightened awareness of subtle body energy. She feels honored to hold a sacred space for healing and growth through the universal energy of Reiki, as well as her group yoga classes, workshops and kirtans, private yoga, and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Tapping sessions.

Cost: $175
