How Presence Inspires Gratitude Workshop

   Friday November 22nd      7:00-9:00 pm

 $25 in advance, $30 at the door



DESCRIPTION
Prepare yourself for the holidays by learning an extremely effective way to stay grounded, centered and awakened through gratitude. Cindy Sabol is an Intuitive LMT that has created the "6 Aspect Reconnection Meditation." It is recommended to be used daily in order to align to both personal and Universal power and stay in a state of grounded presence throughout the day. Ruby Koa, Kundalini Yoga Instructor and Sound Healer, will initially lead everyone through gentle yoga and pranayama breathing techniques. Then Cindy will teach the meaning and importance of each of the six aspects and will later guide students through the powerful journey of reconnection. Ruby will simultaneously perform sound healing with the gong and crystal bowls in order to deepen the meditation. The remainder of the workshop will be spent soaking in the sacred sounds of the bowls and gong.

Being a darker time of year, Winter is the best season for deep introspection. The self awareness gained through meditation can bring about a better quality of life by accessing this deeper level of the Self. The Winter Seed Series is a hybrid Kundalini class. It focuses on primarily Kundalini meditations, but still includes some movement, and sound during savasana.

Together, we will build up to a half hour of meditation, starting with shorter ones and overtime building up to the longer 31 minute meditations. We will cover some of the most transformative Kundalini meditations, and access their healing power as we progress to their full times. Build a better relationship with the Self within you during this Winter Seed Series on the first and third Thursdays of the month.

Energy & Sound Healing

   Thursday December 12th      7:30-9:00 pm

 $20 in advance, $25 at the door $15/$20 for Students



DESCRIPTION
Join Ruby and Sue in their second collaboration. This deeply restorative evening will start with a brief centering, breath work, gentle movement, and meditation. Ruby will then lead everyone through a Yoga Nidra practice (a guided relaxation) followed by around an hour of sound healing, including Tibetan and crystal bowls and the gong. Meanwhile, Sue, who is a very intuitive and seasoned energy medicine practitioner will be working on the whole group. This will not only increase everyone's receptivity to the healing sounds, but will act as a catalyst for clearing physical and emotional blockages, as well as allowing greater connection to one's true self. 

This event is not only a wonderful opportunity for those desiring healing and restoration, but also for those who are either physically unable to do yoga or who would like to opt for a more affordable form of energy work than a one on one session. Treat your whole being to this experience of sound and energy healing!

Winter Solstice Sound Healing & Double Gong Bath

 Friday, December 20th   7:00-8:30 pm 

 $15 advance, $20 at the door ($10 advance for Students



DESCRIPTION
Just a few days before the Fall Equinox, this sound healing event is a wonderful opportunity to uplift your consciousness, balance your energy, and reset yourself. This nurturing evening 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.

Yin + Reiki

 Laura Orso and Shelly Grant
 The 3rd Sunday of the month (visit registration link below for most accurate schedule)
  $30, early bird special $25 online until 11:59 pm, 7 days before class. Class is limited to 10 people, so please sign up in advance to reserve your spot.





DESCRIPTION
Yin+Reiki is a merging of two fantastic self-care practices. Yin is a style of yoga in which you are typically either lying down or seated and focusing primarily on stretching your fascia (connective tissue). It's a great practice on its own, or as a complement to more Yang activities such as more rigorous types of yoga, running, weight training etc. Reiki is a type of energy healing originating in Japan. The Reiki practitioner channels energy into the person receiving Reiki, in this case, to unblock, recharge and align your Chakras (energy centers in the body). This practice is fantastic for anyone who is in need of slowing down and self-care.

Please join us the 3rd Sunday of every month from 4:45-6:00pm, arriving 10-15 minutes early is recommended.

Limited to 10 people, please sign up in advance to reserve your spot.

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!!
