Suggested Donation $15

Yoga is the practice of union in total consciousness, the maintenance of the even tempered awareness amidst all the shifting forms of the external world.

In this class, we will enter a guided practice through the shifting forms of the Pokemon world.

Yoga, in its essence, is a practice meant to be taken off the mat, until ultimately every movement held by the practitioner is an Asana.
This class will contain asanas translated into embodiment of Pokemon.
All levels welcome.

May all beings everywhere be happy and free.
Infinite gratitude for the continuing EVOLUTIONS.

Kirtan is a form of devotional chanting with roots going back many centuries in India. It is a primary practice on the path of Bhakti Yoga. The singing is accompanied by musical instruments and rhythmic drumming and the audience is encouraged to participate by chanting, clapping and dancing. In its heartfelt expression kirtan can induce profound states of meditation and bliss.

The World is Your Oracle with with Nancy Vedder-Shults, Ph.D. May 5th & 6th http://dayayogastudio.com/the-world-is-your-oracle-with-with-nancy-vedder-shults-ph-d-may-5th-6th/ http://dayayogastudio.com/the-world-is-your-oracle-with-with-nancy-vedder-shults-ph-d-may-5th-6th/#respond Fri, 17 Mar 2017 17:09:57 +0000 http://dayayogastudio.com/?p=2980 The World is Your Oracle: Divinatory Practices for Tapping Your Inner Wisdom with Nancy Vedder-Shults, Ph.D.

In this interactive workshop, we will use some of the divinatory methods that Nancy has gathered in her new book The World Is Your Oracle to explore a number of ways that ancient, indigenous, and contemporary cultures have tapped into the wisdom that resides within each of us.

After eliciting questions that need answers, we will invite our inner wisdom to respond. As opposed to the pre-programmed answers provided by Tarot, the I Ching, or runes, the techniques we will investigate employ the three major intuitive senses: the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. Such embodied oracles help us to turn inward in order to develop deep listening, deep vision, and deep sensing of our flashes of insight. Opening to our inner depths in this way allows us to set priorities, meet challenges, and find creative solutions. Such practices can strengthen us in our insight, determination, and courage, empowering us on our spiritual paths as well as in our daily life. This workshop is an ideal introduction for those who are just beginning to perform oracles as well as an opportunity for those experienced with divination to find fresh inspiration. Come and sink deeply into your inner knowing, fine-tune your life’s trajectory, and renew your connection with Spirit.

Nancy Vedder-Shults, Ph.D., was named one of the Wisdom Keepers of the Goddess Spirituality Movement in 2013. She is the author of The World is Your Oracle (Fair Winds Press: April, 2017). As the thealogical columnist for SageWoman magazine and blogger for Tikkun Daily, and Feminism and Religion, and formerly of Matrifocus, she has offered spiritual growth keynotes, workshops, and classes since 1987. Nancy honed her speaking and workshop skills in the emerging field of Women’s Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her muse then nudged her out of academia to record Chants for the Queen of Heaven, a CD of goddess chants from around the world and Singing the Promise, a live recording. Nancy is an educator, workshop facilitator, and musician whose work has focused on women’s empowerment and spiritual growth. Check out her website at http://www.mamasminstrel.net/

Tools for Being Workshop Sat 3/25 @2pm http://dayayogastudio.com/tools-for-being-workshop-sat-325-2pm/ http://dayayogastudio.com/tools-for-being-workshop-sat-325-2pm/#respond Tue, 14 Mar 2017 17:32:27 +0000 http://dayayogastudio.com/?p=2972 Hosted by Caroline Cunningham
Saturday 25 March
2-4:30pm
$25 preregistration / $30 day of the event

The Tools for Being workshop is an introduction to energy healing and Reiki, and an exploration of the subtle body. Through discussion and guided meditation, we will learn how to cultivate awareness of good boundaries. We will play with energy balls, practice cakra balancing, and consciously incorporate our energetic body into our practice on the mat. The workshop will conclude with a long, restorative savasana and hands-on Reiki adjustments.

Caroline Cunningham is a Reiki Master teacher and yoga instructor. Many schools of contemporary yoga resonate with her, ranging from Unnata aerial yoga to power vinyasa to restorative yoga, and she is hard-pressed to choose what movement she likes teaching best. Regardless of style, the sutra, or thread, of her teaching is in encouraging self awareness, self care, and self love. Her practices of self care include, but are not limited to, playing guitar and singing, hanging from the monkey bars she built in her room, biking, chillin’ upside down in her aerial hammock, meditating in aforementioned hammock, and eating homemade raw chocolate for breakfast. Caroline believes that the better we take care of ourselves, the better equipped we become to take care of others, and works with joy to help her students and clients practically apply this philosophy to their daily lives.

Intro to Shamanic Journeying Fri 3/24 @7pm http://dayayogastudio.com/intro-to-shamanic-journeying-fri-324-7pm/ http://dayayogastudio.com/intro-to-shamanic-journeying-fri-324-7pm/#respond Tue, 14 Mar 2017 17:28:01 +0000 http://dayayogastudio.com/?p=2969 Hosted by Amalthea Sirena
Friday, 24 March
7-9pm
$25 pre-registration / $30 drop-in

This class is for anyone who wants to learn the basics of shamanic journeying, desires a refresher or maybe you just feel like joining the circle and journeying! Truly, this experience is for anyone who feels they are ready to do the hard work of getting to know the divine self and shadow. You know who you are. Come on home.

During this workshop you will learn how to journey into the lower or spiritual world and retrieve valuable information for healing, truth, wisdom and guidance. During your journey, questions about your path may be answered, spirit guides may be greeted and visions of clarity, purpose and healing may present themselves to you in your trance, drum-induced state.

All levels of experience welcome from beginning journeyers to experienced shamanic practitioners. Those who are ready to jump into the astral realms of ancient knowledge will be called to circle and find that the drum feels strikingly familiar in their hands.
You’ve been here before. This is your birthright. We are all ancient journeyers. Claim your space in the sacred circle.

Bring a drum and or rattle if ya got one!

Amalthea is certified in Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki for animals and humans and holds a degree in Psychology.

She first learned she had a gift for healing during a shamanic healing ceremony in Peru in which she began to channel spirits and was gifted with the ability to “see sickness” inside the bodies of others and communicate with animals. She has since worked with many indigenous Peruvian tribal healers (among others) in order to expand her knowledge and practice.

Breathwork ((Pranayam)) Workshop Sun 4/2 @4pm http://dayayogastudio.com/breathwork-pranayam-workshop-sun-42-4pm/ http://dayayogastudio.com/breathwork-pranayam-workshop-sun-42-4pm/#respond Tue, 14 Mar 2017 16:49:16 +0000 http://dayayogastudio.com/?p=2960 Hosted by Becca Stone
Sunday 2 April
4-6pm
$30 preregistration / $35 day of event

Join Becca for an introductory experience of clarity breathwork, a circular rhythm of breath that increases oxygen flow to the brain, expanding your consciousness and your capacity to hold energy in your body.

Breathwork is a powerful tool for integrating your energy system. It connects you more deeply with stuck or split-off parts of yourself, unraveling blocks and facilitating a return to equilibrium. If you are block-free (lucky you!) it is still useful, as it facilitates expansion of your energy field and increases mental and intuitive clarity. With breathwork you control your own edge, and are free to have a deep or more gentle experience. Group breathwork provides support through the power of the group breathing together, while facilitation provides the structure of a container for whatever arises. This gives you the freedom to push your limits and go further than you could alone.

We will begin with a demonstration of the breathing, followed by a warmup exercise to notice where breath is going in your body and where there are blocks. There will be time to set intentions. After a brief guided meditation to surrender and begin allowing greater energy flow, you will breathe together. Becca provides support and holds space for your experience. We close with a short meditation and ample time for all those new energies to integrate into your system!

Becca is an intuitive energy worker with a private practice in Union Square. A lifelong desire to bring light to this world propelled her to study different spiritual traditions and healing modalities from the time she was a child. Her passion is to help others tap into the power within them, giving them tools to stay connected to themselves and to what’s good in the world.

What is mindfulness? Why should I practice it? How can I be mindful in a place like NYC?!?

In Mindfulness 101, we’ll answer all these questions and more. We’ll discuss the benefits, misconceptions, and ways to practice mindfulness on a regular basis, even amidst the hustle and bustle of our busy lives in NYC. We’ll move through a few group exercises to demonstrate mindfulness in different applications, and end with a short meditation and asana practice to pull it all together. You’ll leave with tools to reduce stress and anxiety, be more present in your life, and find beauty in the everyday.

Megan Cuzzolino is a storyteller, mindfulness coach, and yoga instructor in Brooklyn, NY. Her biggest love is helping others slow down and connect with themselves, but she also finds her bliss cruising through Brooklyn on her bike or enjoying a good book at her local coffee shop. A recovering office-dweller, Megan’s mission is to feel good, love life, and keep it simple.
