Our Yoga Classes
are very unique and transformational - some call it "Mystical Yoga" others call it "Transformational Yoga." We begin our classes with Feldenkrais Somatics- it's a gentle rolling so your muscles and joints may ease into the stretching. It is common knowledge that you cannot go into lengthening (or stretching) a muscle or joint with out rolling the body out first. We then begin the more gentle Yoga Asansa and ease into tranformational dynamic poses. We always work the abdominals- most of your Yoga is "Core Work." The style of Yoga used is a variety (Rose says it depends on what my students need that class) of Hatha, Integrative, Vinyasa, Raja, Kemetic, Pilates, Acu- Yoga and Kundalini. Philosphy,Asrtology, Energy Medicine are also woven into classes.
We always do hip openers (releases worries & fears), we always strengthen the upper body and we lenghten the muscles and reopen the joints before we do Chakra Work. We always end our classes with Savasana (meditation). As a Certified Yoga Therapist- Rose knows what each Student (issues they are working on) needs from the class. She is also an "Intuitive" so what she doesn't know- "Spirit" will tell her. We are all connected to the earth, the universe and all living and non-living things. So let's tap into them together.....
Feel the earth beneath your feet, breathe the fresh air into your lungs, listen to the sounds of the babbling brook, the birds and nature. Come join us Saturdays at 10:00 AM- weather pending. We'll be inside should the weather be inclement or should the dew maids have visited the Sunflower Circle.
The Circle radiates energy from the sun~ the sunflower is a totem of rebirth and renewal. It's behind the Studio next to the Lavender Labyrinth. Enjoy our grounds anytime!
Your presence is an honor to us.... $12 drop in or use your punch card.
YOGA NIDRA~ Meditation
Please join Rose for a very special yoga meditation class called Yoga Nidra.
This is not your typical mediation~ YN opens up doorways, releases blockages, it heals every organ, bone, muscle etc, it goes DEEP in to ALL levels of consciousness, releasing scars from traumas & abuses we have suffered from in this lifetime and more. Your YN takes you through the veils of life, afterlife, and previous lifetimes. We experience time travel, astro projection and it's also trippy!
It is said that Yoga Nidra is the most healing and best of all meditations. It has an emphasis on health and healing where habitual thinking and thought patterns are reduced or eliminated and it also helps with insomnia and stress reduction. It also brings an incredible calmness, quietness, clarity and is one of the deepest of all meditations. Yoga Nidra means Yogic Sleep and is a state of conscious Deep Sleep. In this Meditation, you remain in the Waking state of consciousness, and gently focus the mind, while allowing thought patterns, emotions, sensations, and images to arise and go on.. While Yoga Nidra is a state that is very relaxing, it is also used by Yogis to purify the Samskaras (negative energy & thought patterns). It’s also great for insomniacs and those who suffer with PTSD, as well as a powerful tool for manifesting. It also raises “Bodhi” our awareness or spiritual growth.
It is held the first Monday of every month at 7:30 PM. Registraton is a must and can be made via email or phone call.
YOGA CLASS MUSIC Ravi Shankar, Sting, Anoushka Shankar, Bob Marley, Psychadelic 70's, Chinmaya Dunster, Buddha Lounge, Journey to the East, Drala- Midnight Flower, Sacred Chants of the Devi, Shaman's Dream Project, MC Yogi and Bhagavan Das, DJ Cheb i Sabbah, Anugama- Shamanic Dream, Eternal Om, Enigma, Loreena McKennitt, Hamsa Lila & many inspiring compilations.

Yoga Proven Effective in Complementary Cancer Care
By Jack Bleeker
The 21st Century has brought with it tremendous strides in cancer survival and the efficacy of therapies. Among the more important aspects of this progress is the implementation of integrative oncology as an effective model for cancer treatment. Integrative oncology emphasizes not only the use of traditional cancer treatments, such as surgery, chemotherapy, and surgery, but also complementary, non-curative therapies designed to ease the process of cancer treatment for the patient. These therapies can range from acupuncture to meditation, but have proven more often than not to be effective in assisting patients through the discomforts commonly associated with traditional cancer treatment. One therapy being incorporated into cancer care in recent years is Yoga.
The primary goals of integrative oncology are to achieve effective cancer treatment while maintaining patient comfort and relief of stress. Just as Yoga has been used for hundreds of years as an effective stress release mechanism for many people, so too is it now being utilized by cancer patients.
While further research is ongoing, preliminary studies examining the effects of Yoga among cancer patients and survivors support the efficacy of Yoga within cancer treatment regimens, including the combating of symptoms caused by chemotherapy drugs. Yoga has shown to dramatically reduce sleeplessness, cancer-related distress, nausea, and excessive fatigue.
Some aggressive cancers are difficult to treat with curative therapies. Many patients of malignancies such as mesothelioma choose to incorporate alternative therapies such as Yoga, not to supplant traditional therapies, but to improve quality of life and reduce anxiety associated with terminal disease. Therapies which can reduce stress levels and alleviate symptoms associated with aggressive chemotherapy cocktails and radiation treatments can be extremely beneficial not only to patients but also to family members and loved ones of patients.
This is not to say however, that Yoga and other alternative therapies are appropriate for all patients. Patients of mesothelioma cancer, for instance, should speak with their oncologist and other doctors to ensure that they are in good enough health to pursue any therapy which could induce mild stress on the body. However, support for Yoga and other well-being-based therapies is growing among the oncology establishment and many cancer centers are introducing sessions designed for patients and family members. If the ultimate goals of complementary cancer care are to introduce therapies which improve comfort levels and reduce stress experienced by patients and loved ones, Yoga will be at the forefront of integrative oncology now and in the future.
