Sound Circle

For thousands of years Indigenous Peoples have learned to be deeply connected to Nature and Universe in order to keep our spirits healthy and strong, tuned to the pulse of every being that creates a very refined balance into ourselves to walk in harmony and peacefully. Those sounds in the current times are so needed because people tend to be disconnected and mostly distracted by their minds; it is almost forgotten that beyond physical bodies there is a pure essential vibration that we call SPIRIT. The Amazonian sounds in conjunction with human healing chants help you to connect with your pure essence and creates an incredible opportunity to reconnect with your essential vibration. Come and join us to create together the South Amazonian and Northern Vibration.

 

Eda Zavala Lopez is a peruvian shaman-curandera, sociologist and environmental activist is in the US to share her profound knowledge about Shamanism, Plant Medicine and Amazonian Conservation. She is a direct descendant of Wari and Ashaninka People from the Amazon.

In December 2014 she was awarded by the Ministry of Environment in Peru for her profound commitment to Indigenous People from the Amazon Jungle to protect their sacred territories and pristine forests. She is also a Cultural Ambassador on behalf of Impact A Village that funds her projects in Peru.

Eda is a Plant Medicine healer that connects with the spirits of the plants and she is an activist that works so hard to preserve Indigenous knowledge and empower Indigenous People regarding future generations. Indigenous Wisdom and Amazonian forests are so important to keep alive in order to conserve the entire Planet.

In the last 10 years Eda has been participated in several venues around the US and participated in 2010, 2017 and 2018 at the United Nations Permanent Forum of Indigenous Issues. She also collaborated on the Stephan Martin’s book “Cosmic Visions: Dialogues on the Nature of the Universe and the Search for Reality” (2010)

Yin Yoga & Sound Healing: rescheduled for Thursday, 2/1, 5:30-8pm

Meditate. Melt. Merge.

A Yin Yoga & Sound Healing Experience

with Will Leblanc, Lea Garnier & Beth Ylivisaker

Rescheduled for Thursday, Feb. 1st – 5:30-8pm

Hosted at our Midtown Studio at 474 Broadway, Kingston

Meditation with sound and yoga is one universal path to Self Realization, accessible to anyone, and appropriate for people of any religion or spiritual aspiration.

All life is relationship, and in this experience we will explore the dynamics between the practice of Yin Yoga and the therapeutic Sound Bath. By uniting our emotional, spiritual and physical bodies in a meditative way, these two up and coming modalities will help you come back to who you truly are: a vibrational being, in tune.

The practice of Yin Yoga is a slow and deep.  Based on the principles of stillness, it encourages students to listen to their body’s individual needs. A yin practice guides students past the muscle and into the connective tissue, joints and areas of tension that are being held in deep layers of the body. Students will learn an intuitive approach to working with the body that cultivates listening, facilitates the release of long held tensions and offers genuine relaxation. Simple postures on the floor will be practiced to relax your muscles in order to stimulate the ligaments, joints and layers of fascia. No yoga experience necessary!

Sound has been utilized in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. Whether through the use of mantras, medicine melodies or the use of interval and frequency, these various techniques all have the same intention: to move us from a place of imbalance to a place of balance. Each human being is in essence a vibration. The molecule sings, the heart of the atom is tone, and the human has a sound body which comes in and out of tune. Enabling the soul to remember its true divine self, its spirit self, we can re-merge with all that is. Finding connection and balance with all that is, we find ourselves in wholeness and perfect health.

The Great Beyond: Past Life Regression

A Workshop with Laurie Oliver

Saturday, February 4th, 2-4pm

$20 to preregister

or $25 day of

Past Life Regression is a doorway into the many journeys and incarnations our souls have taken. Many people have epiphanies about various patterns that become apparent through the experience of having a regression. Often times we return with those souls we have strong connections to. Sometimes it provides us an opportunity to get it right this time around. It helps to clarify our purpose for each lifetime and lessons learned.
Laurie Oliver is a psychic-medium, as well as a hypnotist specializing in Past Life Regressions. She uses her intuition as well as guidance from “The Other Side,” in a gentle, caring way to answer questions and offer support and healing from whatever life challenges present. Laurie also happens to be our genuinely beloved landlord here at The Yoga House.

This year we are “ENLARGING, DEEPENING AND EXPANDING” the call for REVOLUTION, harnessing our COLLECTIVE ENERGY, and connecting our BODIES with the REVOLUTION.

“The struggle of humanity is the struggle to return to our bodies. Through trauma, cruelty, shame, oppression, violence, rape, and exclusion, the body of the human species has been hurt, wounded, and we have been forced to flee our bodies.”
Through yoga, meditation, dance and many more healing modalities, we will join in this year’s Revolution bringing about a “new kind of consciousness – one where violence will be resisted until it is unthinkable.”
