Infinite Love: The Marriage of Sun and Moon with Lee Schardein and J Miles

The poet Rumi continuously wrote about our Union with the Divine as the “lover and the Beloved”, a mystical partnership that fused the power of our own devotion and faith to develop the love necessary to free us from the bondage of hate and fear. Yoga philosophy teaches that yoga occurs when duality merges into Oneness. When we are filled with the power of love we able to live in our highest vibration. The lover and the Beloved become love itself. Ha (Sun)- Tha (Moon) is represented as a physical practice, designed to awaken the twin-flames within yourself the Sun and the Moon, and to unite them with effort and intentions. As the saying goes, “Yoga is practice of the Self, through the Self, to the Self. Join Lee and J Miles on a journey of legendary love, storytelling, inner alchemy, and our connection to the Divine, through flow and our own embodied wisdom.

Yoga for Trauma Release Carolyn Keller Sells

Shiva Love ~ Friday 1:30-2:30

“Help Me to Heal Myself”

Almost everyone has experienced some sort of trauma. Sometimes the trauma is trapped in our bodies. This class will help to release the trauma held in the body using the Trauma Release Exercise (TRE) system by Dr. David Berceli. We will encourage our bodies to shake involuntarily by holding certain shape. This may sound a little bit weird, but just wait until you experience it! This practice has helped me with my own depression and PTSD. It is amazing how quickly I felt better. After my first experience, I had more energy and felt happier than I had in a long while. And I couldn’t stop smiling throughout the day and evening!
