My Primal Spiral Has No Beginning and No End: MANTRAS FOR THE DIVINE MOTHER

My Primal Spiral Has No Beginning and No End: MANTRAS FOR THE DIVINE MOTHER

January 10th, Sunday 4:30-6:30 pm

In this workshop we will circle up and explore mantras to the divine mother from the Kundalini and Tantric traditions. Although rarely spelled out in your typical yoga class, “OM” is the “Mother of All Sound” and shares its root with “Womb.” This unique workshop features a short introduction to Kundalini Shakti and its Divine Feminine archetypes as expressed cross-culturally throughout the ages.  Not only will we learn to sound the ancient seed syllables sacred to the Great Mother, we’ll also explore yoga’s roots in the indigenous earth-based wisdoms stemming from matrilineal Queen Mothers and Goddesses of Black India and Africa.

All gender orientations welcome. Bring crystals or other items to place on the altar, water and comfortable clothes for seated meditation.

High on Flow Party!!!

December 11, 2015 +++ Doors Open 8PM
360 Jefferson st

What is it?

It is the next level drug and alcohol-free party, which will leave you clearer, happier and healthier than when you arrived.

In other words, it’s a healthy potluck where conscious peeps bring healthy, holistic, sacred goodies – such as raw chocolates, bulletproof coffee, alcaic waters, elixirs, kombucha and whatever meals mother earth has given us, unprocessed.

Flying in from Hawaii, Tone Floreal will be giving hugs and endorphin pumps with a flow-inducing biohacking technology while you eat yummy foods and feel groovy to dope-ass psychedelic beats and beautiful souls.

About Tone:

For the past 11 years, Tone Floreal aka “The Flying FloGnome” has traveled the world inducing flow states using microcurrent technology long before the term biohacking became a word in the mainstream vernacular.

It was through sport, travel, intimacy, meditation & crisis – that Tone experienced the peak state known as FLOW.

He is also the host of Flow Real TV, where he travels globe interviewing inspiring artists, musicians, athletes, entrepreneurs & everyday folks that flow and shine the X-Factor glow.

Escape the bitter and cold winter of NYC and retreat with Daya Yoga to beautiful MEXICO!

You will get wisked away to the Pacific side of Mexico to Agua Blanca in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Here is a little bit about Agua Blanca!


Agua Blanca
Agua Blanca is a small beach town on the Pacific coast in Oaxaca, Mexico. It can be accessed via an unpaved road that exits at KM 171 on highway 200 between Puerto Escondido and Puchutla.
The community is intimate and low key. It is a fishing village with many small palapa (open-air with palm-frond roofs) restaurants serving the locally caught seafood.
Locals use both lines and nets to catch Yellowtail amberjack, Skipjack tuna, and agujon off the beach, and the rocky shoreline is also popular for oyster divers and lobster fisherman.
Olive Ridley and Leatherback sea turtles nest on the western end of the beach and their eggs are often collected by the locals to protect them from predators until they hatch and can be released.
Agua Blanca is popular with Mexican tourists during the Christmas holiday and Semana Santa periods, but is relatively unvisited by the foreign tourists who flock to nearby Puerto Escondido.

Places around that we can visit;
-Lagunas de agues termales.
-Laguna de Chacahua.
-Cascada de la Reforma.
-Mazunte/ it have a yoga center.
-Puerto Escondido

Enjoy days filled with yoga, meditation, special workshops, day trips, soaking up the warm sunrays, sand and ocean.
