Spring Clearing: A Crystal Bowl Meditation with Reiki

Spring Clearing: A Crystal Bowl Meditation with Reiki

April 10 from 4:30pm – 6:30pm


$35 pre-registration
$40 day of

Out with whatever is no longer serving you and in with self-awareness and healing! Usher in spring with the opportunity to energetically cleanse with the vibrations of quartz crystal bowls and Reiki energy. Each bowl is tuned to a different music note which correlates to specific energy centers – or chakras – in the body. When the bowls are played, the tone reverberates to release trapped or untapped energy being held within your energetic field. The result is healing on a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual level which translates to shifts in your external world. Reiki energy is offered to each participant in conjunction with the crystal bowls to support the release process and balance the energy field.

The evening will include guided meditation, the sounds of crystal bowls, and Reiki energy healing. Blankets, bolsters, yoga mats, and eye pillows will be provided, but please bring anything else you may need to rest comfortably as you will be laying down.

This Workshop will be hosted at the Tigerlily Holistic Room at 360 Jefferson st

Tantra for Lovers

unnamed (12)During this immersive workshop led by partners Katie Cercone and David Jason Williams, we will practice the Venus Kriyas from Kundalini Yoga, which involve eye gazing into your partner’s soul, gentle asanas done as a pair & sending one another positive energy through the hands. Venus Kriyas are a “white” form of Tantra used to cultivate loving compassion and deep presence.
We’ll also practice partner massage with warm oil, sacred dance and vocalization techniques to inspire conscious speech and loving commitment. Tantra for Lovers is great to practice with a partner, lover or friend and will inspire deep connection and healing, tantric touch as well as high vibration imaginative play.
Sign up with a partner or come solo and we’ll pair you up. All welcome!

One swallow does not make a spring.

Bluebirds are a sign of spring; warm weather and gentle south breezes they bring.

In spring, no one thinks of the snow that fell last year.

Don’t say that spring has come until you can put your foot on nine daisies.

Spring-time sweet!
The whole Earth smiles, thy coming to greet.

Lake Atitlan

Lake Atitlán is a lake in the Guatemalan Highlands of the Sierra Madre mountain range. It is in the Sololá Department of northern Guatemala. “Atitlan” means “at the water” in Nahuatl.

We have just hosted a retreat there and it was amazing.

Looking forward to make another trip soon in Spring!!!!

“Warm Women” at Daya Yoga Studio





After nearly a year of developing the piece warm woman Susannah Simpson (creator, director, and Daya yoga teacher!), and her collaborators/performers Helen Gutowski, Laura Ornella, Rebekah Nagy, and Madeline Sachs will be taking their work on the road and embarking on a US tour to Warm the country! “Warm Women”, which debuted at Daya during Bushwick Open Studios last summer, is a text, movement, and vocalization based performance piece about female sexuality and the tremendous range of possibilities and states of being that lies therein.

Please join us back where it all began to witness their offering and bless them as they set off on the next leg of their mission. On Friday March 4th, we will gather in the warm womb of Daya for a tour kick-off party and evening of celebratory performance featuring:

a yoga Devi (Goddess) dance by Amazing Amy, yoga contortionist dancer and High Priestess


And a dreamy, moody, earthly-informed musical bath by Non-Human Persons, including Daya’s own sunflower extraordinaire Linnea Vedder, with sound goddesses Camilla Padgitt-Coles and Ka Baird, who will use flute, synth, vocal lilts and harmonies, and electronic majestry to coax us into our deepest, sweetest spaces.

As a nightcap Linnea will guide a meditation to integrate the sensuality, pleasure, and power of the evening into our beings as we beckon and await the coming spring. Celebrate individual and collective awakenings and sexuality in it’s many forms, blooms, and (wo)manifestations!

Suggested Donation $5-$15

Doors: 8:30
Show: 9 p.m. show
