DESCRIPTION
Love, Cascadia in collaboration with Inspire Studio, Rose Drummond Art, Project EVA, and Firethorne Sacred Altars presents Conscious Dance! With tea and live art on Friday July 13th join us for an evening of mindful movement with DJ headliner Zoie Mizuna https://soundcloud.com/zmizuna and opener Romancer (Rowan Firethorne) https://soundcloud.com/rowmancer

Conscious dance, sometimes called ‘intentional’ or ‘ecstatic’ dance is movement experienced in a space where participants abstain from conversation in order to fully the observe their lived sensations in connection to sound. Since ancient times, cultures around the world have danced as a form of ceremony and medicine. As a form of celebration; of life, death, and everything between and beyond. We recognize that we are descendants of these cultures and dance to practice this ancient human rite in the presence of our community.

Make this your best summer yet: Wellness Workshop Series

Blake's 12-year journey in health and wellness has been anything from ordinary.  Beginning in South Africa and Ghana, to mindfulness at a free mental health clinic, diabetes prevention through the CDC, a 15 year yoga practice and teaching, a Master's degree and now her own private coaching practice.  As an Integrative Wellness Coach, Blake approaches health and wellness holistically, respecting that our human experience is physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.  Because of her extensive background in habit, behavior, and healthy lifestyle, Blake focuses on these components in her coaching.  So often, what is the most obvious "issue" is connected to more aspects and actions in our lives, we just have to peer into the structure and anatomy to see where the gaps are.

Blake's wellness workshops are playful and wholehearted.  Participants consistently say they leave with a sense of self-awareness that they never found on their own and the clarity to take it into sustainable action in their lives.

Women's Kundalini Yoga Full Moon Meditation Circle (Outdoors with a Fire!)

 Friday July 27th   7:30-9:00 pm 

 Drop in $15, Student drop in $12, Class packages and new student specials can be used. If you plan to drop in, please purchase your drop in pass in advance or bring cash or check, as taking payment outside with credit card will be more complicated. Students can purchase theirs here.



WHERE
This circle will be held in a private, beautiful outdoor location about 20 minutes away in Custer, WA (same place we had it in June).  Please email Ruby at rubycrystal@gmail.com or text/call at 360-941-8556 to get the address.  Carpooling is preferred and Ruby can help connect you with a ride if needed.

DESCRIPTION
Let your intentions be magnified with other women as we open our bodies with yoga & movement to prepare for deep meditation.  These circles serve as a great opportunity to gather together with other like-minded women to celebrate and tap into our powerful feminine energy and to deepen our understanding and relationship to the cycles of the moon.

This is going to be our second outdoor full moon circle, which will allow us to have a fire, connecting us to generations of women who gathered together upon Mother Earth, below Mother Moon!

Because parking is limited, it’s preferred that people carpool. Please contact Ruby for the address and give her your estimated # of people. We’ll be on a slightly uneven grassy surface, so please bring your own yoga mat, blankets, cushion, and a jacket or warm layered clothing just in case.  If you need a mat, let Ruby know as she’ll be bringing just a few.

Lots of snacks and tea are available afterwards and there is a nice trail for a nature walk, so plan to stay for a bit! Bring a journal and an item to set on the altar if you’d like. Please arrive at least 10 minutes early.

*If the weather is extremely bad that day, the circle will be canceled. See the website and facebook event for details.

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 ★★★★★
