Yin & Pins: Winter Preparation Edition

 with Ruby Koa RYT and Stacey Whitcomb EAMP
 Friday December 7th   7:00-9:00 pm
 

$40 advanced, $50 at the door
$25 advanced, $30 door if you want to do the workshop, but receive no acupuncture-use the restorative workshop link.
(Space limited to 15 ppl. Receiving acupuncture, plus 10 who don’t want the needles, for a discount.)



DESCRIPTION
As the seasons change from Fall to Winter nature quiets and turns completely inward. This is considered the most Yin of seasons. It is also time for us to shift and practice more quiet and soul nourishing activities like meditation, reading, self reflection, Yin Yoga or internal martial arts.

One should go to bed earlier and sleep later, eat fully cooked foods with lots of warm and nourishing benefits such as ginger, root veggies and bone broths.

Embody this subtle shift by joining us for this popular class of Yin and Pins! This thoughtfully crafted workshop will combine the two ancient arts of Yoga and Acupuncture. Our focus will be to deeply nourish and cultivate your inner resources while clearing the noisy holiday stress from your system.

We will be shaking it up a little bit this time with a full hour of Yin and Restorative yoga followed by a guided meditation and singing bowls. Then we will sink into a 30 minute acupuncture session with gentle placement of needles in your forearms and lower legs all while blissing in savasana.

Preparation for class:
• Eat something light. Not eating + Acupuncture = bad combination!
• Come 10 minutes early to fill out that pesky paperwork.
• Please wear loose clothing that can easily be pulled up over your knees
and elbows.
• Be prepared to sleep like a babe after the session!

Fall Equinox Sound Healing & Double Gong Bath

   Friday, Dec. 21st      7:00-8:30 pm
 $15 in advance, $20 at the door   ($10 in advance for Students)


DESCRIPTION
The Winter Solstice is a reflective time of year when we prepare to move into the light, not only physically but with our intentions as well.  On the actual winter Solstice, utilize this powerful time to uplift your consciousness, balance your energy, and unlock the joy from within. This healing experience begins with gentle stretching and movement (all beginner level), breathing, and meditation to allow the nervous system to prepare for the sound vibrations. Then enjoy an extended relaxation (at least 40 minutes long) while experiencing the powerful healing sounds of two gongs, crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, chimes, and a version of guided meditation known as Yoga Nidra.

The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releases us from the torrent of thoughts our mind continuously generates and stimulates our glandular system to a higher frequency of functioning.  

“The gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind. There is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind-the sound of the gong. It is the first sound in the universe, the sound that created this universe. It is the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played.” – Yogi Bhajan

Doors open at 6:30. Please arrive at least 5-10 minutes early to get set up.  Mats and blankets are available to use, but bring your own for extra comfort if you’d like.

Inspire Studio Reviews

  • Julia Moss ★★★★★
    This historical one room yoga studio is a beautiful place for a class. Instructors range in style, class time, and difficulty but owner Ruby Koa does a beautiful job filling her space with love. Drop in for a sweat at the noon power hour on Tuesday or Thursday, start your weekend off right with a free meditation class Friday afternoon or ever try the new aerial yoga class offered with silks. Inspire is an incredible place to find community and spirit.

  • Ali Michelin ★★★★★
    Thus place really does have heart ♥! I've only taken classes with Ruby, but heard great things about the other instructors too. There's a calm, happy energy about this space, and Ruby is so open, sweet, joyful and just a fabulous instructor!! I highly recommend Inspire Studio!!
