Yin Yoga & Meditation

Yin Yoga is known as the quiet practice that links the body and the mind. With a slow and steady approach, Yin Yoga uses floor poses held in stillness to allow passive, long holds to release and hydrate connective tissues in a way that most other practices cannot. Within the stillness you may sink deeper into the body and quiet the mind. Yin Yoga is a very individual practice so the level of intensity can be personalized. Classes will end with a period of meditation with a different style each class.

Power Animals: Finding Your Spirit Guide

Join us for this special shamanic journey for Power Animal retrieval lead by Celtic Shaman and QiGong Healer, Nadiya Nottingham.


According to Celtic and other ancient traditions, we are all born with a helping animal spirit(s). You may already feel that a particular animal has been helping you and you may have felt this since childhood. In this workshop, as you lay down, a beautiful heartbeat drum will take you on a journey to find your Power Animal guided by Nadiya.

A Power Animal is a guide, protector, a force of nature which may guide you to new self-understanding, help to connect you to other helpers or healing that you may need, and perhaps most profoundly, will give you a sense of having an ally to face post or pre surgery, divorce, moving, death of dear ones or breaking new ground in your life on many levels. Nadiya will help you to understand the meaning of your Spirit Animal and will share her knowledge and stories of how the animals and nature spirits are just waiting for us to “ask” for the help we need.

Candle Meditation for Manifesting Your Goals

From the temples of ancient Greece to the contemporary birthday cake, candles have been used in meditation, ceremony and ritual for as long as they have been around. As many people today turn to alternative forms of spirituality to feel connected to themselves and a higher power, candles continue to play an important role in both personal and group practices. Candles can also hold their own as all-in-one altars when you don’t have the time or space to create something more elaborate for your meditation practice.

In this 3-hour workshop, you will experience how to use candles as a co-creation tool for modern living to support the manifestation of your deepest desires. You will come away inspired to make candles a part of your daily life to consistently activate the energy and mindset that best supports your personal intentions and goals. The group candle meditation during this workshop will ignite the energy that you will continue to work with at home, using the candle you choose. We will also engage in several discussions and activities including:

  • Why a candle is such a powerful tool for co-creation.
  • Writing a clear intention or goal as well as an affirmation to use when you work with your candle.
  • Anchoring exercise to embody how you want to feel each day as you manifest the life you desire.
  • Using gratitude to magnetize and receive the blessings and resources that will help you create what you want.
  • How you can activate and work with the chakras when manifesting, including a moving chakra meditation.
  • How to choose the candle that will best support your special goal or intention.
  • Steps for you to work with your candle at home and continue the momentum started in this group.

Cost of the workshop includes a handmade, essential oil reiki candle of your choosing. Additional candles will be available for purchase at the workshop.
