CANCELLED DUE TO FAMILY EMERGENCY - The Heart’s Song; A Heart-Centered Chanting Class

 Sigal Erez
 Friday April 13th   6:00-7:15 pm

 $12



DESCRIPTION

CANCELLED DUE TO FAMILY EMERGENCY - Please join Sigal's heart-centered chanting class. In this class, chants from the Buddhist, Yogic, and related traditions will deliver us teachings of loving-kindness, compassion, healing, and unconditional self-acceptance. The repetitive chants will allow us to soak in their teachings, and carry those teachings with us into our daily lives as inspiration and refuge.

Chanting does not require a special voice or talent - only an openness to sound out (or simply listen to) the words and let them move us. In our class, we will befriend our vocal expression, however it manifests in our bodies. We will then alternate periods of chanting with guitar accompaniment (and occasional light movement), and periods of silence and stillness, to allow the teachings to permeate. All voices are welcomed (as well as those who simply enjoy listening).


Bellingham Yoga

Jade Woman Qigong

 Caryn Boyd Diel, Founder and Director of White Cloud Institute
 Sunday, April 15th   1:00-5:00 pm

 $95  (Cash, checks or PayPal)  Email WhiteCloudNM@aol.com or call 505 670-3538 to register



DESCRIPTION

**Clear physical and emotional toxins...Enhance peace and vitality...Support liver chi**

Jade Woman Qigong is a superior method of healing that addresses the special needs of a woman’s body. The phases of a woman’s life require a plentiful supply of blood to as­sure normal gynecological function. Because of these needs, Qigong forms designed for women have a focus that is different from traditional forms.

The form is named Jade Woman because Jade is a highly prized precious stone that, since ancient times, has been regarded as a symbol of yin (female) energy.

This beauti­ful and effective form of Qigong was taught to Instructor Caryn Boyd Diel, by Master Liu He. Jade Woman Qigong was created for and taught to Master Liu He by her grandfather when she was a young girl growing up in China.

This magical qigong form provides great benefit to all women regardless of age or re­productive history, and is also appropriate for men who want to heal liver problems.

You will learn this form as we will practice it several times. During breaks we will do some simple meditations. There will be handouts for you and DVDs available on this form, also.

Caryn is a Senior Healing Tao Instructor and has been teaching Seasonal Qigong forms around the world for 20 years. She plans to teach a Seasonal Qigong form every 3 months at Inspire.

Spring is naturally a time of accelerated change, which makes clearing out the old and starting anew easier. Over the weekend we will begin by detoxifying, just like we till the soil and clear out the debris. Then we will nurture the body (bathing in healing sounds, sharing amazing organic food and the healing touch of mother nature)with energy and light just like we add nutrients to the soil before planting seeds. We will follow this with planting the seeds of our intentions and nurturing them with our renewed sense of focus and vitality.

Over the weekend we will be weaving together modalities such as:

  • Kundalini yoga sets and meditations,
  • Sound healing with the gong,
  • Tibetan and crystal bowls,
  • Walks in nature
  • Special essential oil blends to support your journey.
  • We will nurture you with a delicious lunch and tea on both days

*If you are from out of town or just want a full retreat, the Be Free Center (the venue) has overnight accommodations and meals. Friday night with Breakfast on Saturday morning would be $75.  And for dinner and lodging on Saturday night,and breakfast on Sunday morning, the cost would be $95.

Yoga of Sound: Gong & Crystal Bowl Journey

 Ruby Koa & Loren Schaumberg
  Friday, May 18th      7:30-9:30 pm

  $20 advance, $25 at the door   ($15 advance for students, $20 door)



DESCRIPTION
Yoga of Sound is a new event that Ruby and Loren are collaborating together to bring to you.  Loren’s background as a musician combined with Ruby’s yoga background will make for quite the night. Ruby will guide you through gentle yoga warm ups (all beginner level), breathing, and meditation while Loren plays the flute in the background. Yoga nidra (guided relaxation) will prepare your body to fully let go, segueing into an hour long sound journey. You’ll be immersed in the healing vibrations of at least 18 crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, a handful of flutes, a gong, and chimes. This special event will leave you feeling more grounded and restored and will help clear your mind, subconscious, and will activate your body's natural healing systems.

More Info. on Sound Healing
The human body, and all things in our Universe, are designed according to harmonic principles of varying geometry, pattern, and frequency. Everything is sound, that is, everything is vibrating and has a waveform. In understanding the relationship of sound to material form- the study of cymatics- we can begin to positively affect the well-being of the body through the appropriate use of sound and vibration. Some of the key aspects of this modality include resonance theory, cosmic superimposition, five star geometry, solar harmonic/fibonacci/solfeggio scales, and ideal nervous system tuning through the perfect 5th interval (the proportion 2:3 which the human body is designed upon). Use of meditation, vocalization, mantra, and interval training are some key components of this modality.

Coming Soon
On Sunday June 24th, will offer a half day, more immersive type of event like this that we’ll allow people to go deeper and include a sacred cacao ceremony as well.

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 ★★★★★
