WHAT’S NEW THIS FALL
RESTORATIVE YOGA CLASS - 1st and 3rd Thursday Mornings
& 2nd and 4th Wednesday evenings
Come and join our Restorative Yoga Classes taught by Sarah Monroy, RYT-200. These classes are designed to help release deeply held tensions from the body and mind. Props are used to make it easier for your body to relax in certain poses. Relaxation is the state in which there is no movement, no effort, and the brain is quiet. These classes are ongoing and are held on the first and third Thursday mornings of every month from 10:30am until noon and the second and fourth Wednesday evenings from 6:30 - 8:00 pm. The classes include breathing exercises (pranayama), restorative poses, relaxing music, and inspirational quotes and readings. They are suitable for all levels. The classes are pay as you go where the cost of each class is $20. Because this is a specialized style of yoga which requires a lot of personalized attention, there is a limit of 8 people per class so if you are interested, please sign up in advance by emailing Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 717-512-2034.

A Women's Circle is an intimate gathering where we learn ways to witness, speak and relate to others in sacred space. During each Circle, led by Elaine Torrance-Gingrich, the craziness of our "real" world will be placed on pause as we witness what each person needs. We will sit, welcome, and accept one another as we are - a unique expression of the Divine. Each woman's perspective is valued as it enriches the whole and Sisterhood is created. What is the importance of Circle and Sisterhood? They allow you to surround yourself with women of like-mind, women who desire to rise, women who know there is power and sacredness in establishing and maintaining community. You desire to create meaningful relationships, to raise your vibration, to feel connected and to have a safe space to express yourself. You want to be inspired, uplifted, and supported as you move through life. Sisterhood and Circle provide this.
The focus for the Circle will be on how to BE our authentic selves as we navigate our lives. Will you join the Circle?
Dates: October 4, November 1, and December 6
Time: 6 pm - 7:30 pm
Cost: $20 per circle

YOUR ENERGY = YOUR POWER = YOUR LIFE
Monday evenings, October 2 - 23 from 6:30 - 8:30pm
Life can feel draining. You are stressed, you deal with unexpected situations, you face difficult people. The list goes on. Believe it or not, you are not bound by how you feel. Your energy is like a bank account and emotional experiences will either deposit into or withdraw from your account. The problem is, you are often withdrawing more than depositing. There are times when you cannot help the withdrawal effect, like when difficulty and stresses arise that are beyond your control. However, there are plenty of ways you can balance your account by increasing deposits. When you increase deposits, you increase energy your health and well-being improve. There is life-giving energy all around you but if you are not in a space to receive it, you will struggle. You can change that. If you have been trying to make changes, but find you are struggling to get past places where you are "stuck", join us for the Your Energy = Your Power = Your Life Workshop.
This is a 4-week experiential workshop where you will learn, share, journal and practice transformative tools that will teach you to expand your awareness of your own personal energy, how you give and receive energy and how the people and situations in your environment affect your "Energetic Bank Account." When you know about and understand your own energy and how it works, your ability to tap into peace and harmony increases. The Workshop will be led by Gigi Jantos and Stephanie Trump Johnston.
The Cost is $200 or $175 if paid by Monday, September 18. Please call the studio at 533-8292 to register or with any questions.
