Cacao & Yin Workshop with Alicia Barry & Nola Ganem

Cacao & Yin Workshop with Alicia Barry & Nola Ganem

Come enjoy an afternoon retreat drinking one of our earth’s most precious gifts, sacred cacao (chocolate before processing), while enjoying the deeply transformative practice of Yin Yoga and heart centered meditation.

Working with ceremonial cacao is an opportunity for you to access deep parts of yourself that are here to assist you in creating personal transformation, a stronger trust, deeper surrender, and a more profound and joyous connection to your heart, spirit and All That Is.

The synergy of yin yoga, meditation and cacao is simply scrumptious.

Partnering cacao into any creative or spiritual endeavor offers us greater depth, access and connection to whatever it is we are working with. The cacao we will be working with comes directly from the hands of indigenous Mayans and contains a spiritual power which energizes our subtle and physical bodies and opens our heart chakras to Unconditional Love.

Nola has been shamanically working with cacao for the past 6 years in Guatemala with the chocolate shaman and is honored to share all she has learned with our beautiful seaside community.

Holding yogic postures for extended durations has been practiced for centuries and gives rise to a myriad of physical, emotional, psychological and energetic benefits. One of the first fruits of this practice is deep embodiment: to feel the body from the inside and create a union with the mind.

This Oneness of mind and body is the essence of yoga, meditative practice and mindfulness of the breath and body Yin yoga stimulates the flow of chi, of prana, of life force, through the meridians of the body that flow through the connective tissue. The meridians are invisible energy pathways that engorge the organs and tissues of the body with fresh life and refined energy.

The practice taps into the body’s inherent wisdom that the mind cannot even begin to fathom utilizing its own inner resources to heal from the inside out. Just as with the ancient traditional practice of acupuncture, the needles are not inserted to be immediately removed, in Yin we suggest the shape to the body and hold for time. There are four main ways to encourage the flow of prana through the body: acupuncture, placing gentle pressure on the tissue within yin yoga, chi gong or tai chi, utilizing the breath body and mind states.

Within Yin Yoga the latter three methods can all be incorporated. In Chinese medicine stagnant or deficient chi is seen as the precursors of all illness. So in this way Yin Yoga is seen as both preventative and restorative as it enhance both aspects of healthy chi: its stable strength and its fluid mobility. In creating the conditions necessary this practice can enable our energy body to move towards its own balance, equilibrium and harmony.

Candlelit Yin Retreat with Alicia Barry

2:00pm 2:00pm

Candlelit Yin Retreat with Alicia Barry

Yin Yoga is known as The Quiet Practice or the Practice of Quiet Power. It is a dynamic blend of modern meridian theory, floor poses held in quiet tranquility, and the contemplative teachings of mindfulness and meditation. The practice addresses every level of our being : physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual. Within the context of Eastern medicine, “the unimpeded flow of chi” restores balance in the psycho/emotional, energy and spiritual bodies.

The long-held quiet Yin postures soften and release the connective tissue of the body and primarily targets the bones, joints, tendons and ligaments which have become tight and restricted through injuries, repetitive stress, poor postural habits and even emotional trauma. The connective tissue (fascial layers) houses the meridian system, known to many of us through acupuncture and shiatsu. The contemplative practice of mindfulness meditation within the poses, helps to cultivate and internal atmosphere of inquiry, receptivity and compassion leading to a state of tranquility.

The class will end with a 20 minute gong session.

Backbends: Safely, Soundly, Sincerely with Juliet Loranger

Backbends in yoga are happening in poses that we sometimes don't even realize there are backbends there....and other times we are certain there's a backbend happening. Are we sure that we are creating these 'backbend' shapes safely? Not only safely but with resonance and respect? Maybe...but are you interested in how to truly know?

Join Juliet for this 2.5 hour workshop that is 100% alignment focused. It will be chock-full of awareness, body mechanics, and improvement strategies. Juliet will have this workshop designed for all levels of yoga experience, but please do have some experience under your belt. You will receive personal instruction and heart warming encouragement.

After this event you will leave with a composition of why we backbend in yoga, how to do it safely, and with a knowing of the patience it takes to go forward and upward in order to pay tribute to bending backwards.

Sound Journey with Gongs, Bells, & Singing Bowls

5:30pm 5:30pm

Sound Journey with Gongs, Bells, & Singing Bowls

Enter a cosmic journey as you bathe in waves of sound from multiple gongs, bells, and singing bowls. The deep complex harmonics of multiple gongs quickly silence the mind and entrain the brain into a spontaneous state of deep meditation. The rhythmic sound oscillations of therapy grade Himalayan bowls placed on or around the body penetrate into the tissues and are often experienced as a full body sound massage that allows us to let go—letting go of stress, worries, anxieties, doubt, fears and feelings that have a negative effect on our health and life.

Listeners often describe out of body experiences, seeing beautiful colors behind their eyes, past life impressions, expanded awareness and higher states of consciousness. We will begin to prepare the body to enter a state of healing and receptivity through the sacred practices of chanting, guided meditation, breathwork, or deep listening. We will then relax deeply to the sounds of multiple gongs for a vibrational experience like no other!
