Intuitive Movement Therapy with Siw- November 5th

Saturday November 5th 3:30-5:30pm

“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious” – C.G Jung

Throughout our experience of childhood, we learn what keeps us safe and what puts our safety at risk. This process results in a mindset favoring certain aspects of ourselves and rejecting others, which in turn results in a psychological separation. When we live with such an internal separation, we easily fall into habits of justification; attempting to be perceived as what we identify to be the ideal version of ourselves, while doing what we can to reject and suppress what we identify as opposite to this ideal. This can create a feeling of unconscious inner battle, causing a sense of restlessness. Naturally, a need to distract ourselves from this restlessness arises, resulting in disempowering habit patterns, causing a feeling of addiction to an external remedy that makes us feel better.

Intuitive Movement is when we surrender to the being within us who exists and experience beyond the captivity of thoughts and feelings.

Boring Yoga / Exploring the Subtlety of Simple Practice with Will Klein- November 5

Saturday November 5 2:00-4:30 PM

So, you may have been doing yoga for some time now. You may have perfected that Chaturanga between Adho Mukha Svanasana and Urdva Mukha Svanasana. You might be able to configure yourself into various pretzel shapes, supported only by the tips of your fingers. Along the way towards these achievements, you may have heard a small, quiet voice bubbling up inside you that asks a simple question. “Why?”

As in—why do you need to be able to put your foot behind your head or hold yourself upside down for extended periods? Why do you need to be able to do what are essentially dozens of burpees in a yoga class?

The truth is, you don’t! There is not one single pose that will make you a better person or bring you luck and prosperity, despite what anybody might tell you. There are purported health benefits, sure, but enlightenment does not hinge on physical ability alone:

“Whether young or old, very old, sick or feeble, one can attain perfection in all the yogas by practicing.”
Hatha Yoga Pradipika 1:64

In other words, these practices are for anyone. Through a discussion of classical yogic texts and the philosophies from which they drew; as well as the physiology of what happens to us when we use the practices they outline, we will work towards more deeply inscribing the subtler, energetic body these texts say arises from doing these practices regularly.

We’ll do a little bit of moving, sure, as we go from the gross to the subtle, but our focus will be less on the external shape of a pose or the speed of a movement, and more on the internal experience.

Arm Balancing Workshop with Rebekah Nagy – September 18 2-4pm-$20

In anticipation of Autumnal Equinox, join Daya teacher Rebekah Nagy for an arm balancing and inversion workshop during the House of Yes Block Party on Sunday 9/18 from 2-4pm, out on Jefferson Street in front of the studio.

Since Midsummer, the days have been drawing shorter. Autumnal Equinox marks a fleeting moment of relative balance between darkness and light, tunnamedhe dusk of the astrological sun cycle as we move winterward. Honoring natural rhythms offers powerful resonant and symbolic opportunities to unify seemingly contradictory forces within us, so that we may remember our intrinsic alignment with our innermost selves, our communities, the planet, and a greater universe at large, within the ceaseless homeostatic play of force and counterforce. In this workshop we’ll briefly discuss the simple physics of arm balancing and inverting, exploring a friendly, rather than adversarial relationship with gravity. We’ll cultivate balance as defined by the American Heritage Dictionary: “a state of equilibrium or parity characterized by cancellation of all forces by equal and opposing forces.” We’ll investigate the embryological and developmental movement patterns that contribute to or inhibit our strategies for going upside down. Most of all, we’ll flow, play, and have fun!

While intermediate and challenging postures will be offered, this workshop is suitable for those with at least several months of yoga practice.

Exchange- $20

THE RED THREAD – Sacred Journey Back to Love – Caity Flanagan Saturday, September 17th

What would be possible from a foundation of self love?
What could you create in your life if you intimately knew the place where your power lives?
Who would you be in the world, in your relationships, in your work if you were connected to your purpose and heart?
What if you felt safe in your vulnerability, your power, and your body at all times?
What would shift if you made an unbreakable vow to yourself to cultivate and nourish the parts of you that make you feel most alive?
What would happen if you had access to an unending wellspring of love?

You are a divine being, come back home to yourself, and give yourself an abundance of love.

The red thread is an intimate and sacred place for women to journey back home to their hearts, to discover their inner purpose, and to be in the relationships they deserve, beginning with themselves.

Through guided meditation, sacred ceremony, and ritual you’ll create a divine union with yourself and your heart. Witness your heart and power, be held by other women, and create a unshakeable bond to yourself, your heart, and others.

Join Caity Flanagan, herbalist, healer, medicine woman, and founder of love and alchemy ( for an intimate, sacred, and sensuous evening of ritual, ceremony, and meditation to help guide you back home to your heart.
