Vedic Astrology Workshop
w/ RaeAnn Banker
Friday, December 8th
Vedic Astrology helps us to understand ourselves better, especially when we look at the placement of the Moon. In this workshop, you’ll learn what the “default setting” is for your mind and emotions. You’ll understand more about how extroversion and introversion works in your life and how it’s best for you to work with that. You’ll see how other habitual patterns impact your emotions. It’s so much easier to work with our patterns if we understand them! Join RaeAnn Banker for this introductory workshop on Vedic Astrology and the Moon! All levels welcome.
Pre-registration is strongly recommended so you can get a copy of your chart to use during the workshop. If you pre-register by November 15th with your birthdate, birthplace (city/state/country) and birth time (if you have it) you will receive a PDF of your chart from RaeAnn.
If you prefer to bring your own chart, it must be a Vedic Astrology chart in the Southern Indian style. If you have your birth time, you can get your chart online here at: http://vedicastrologycenter.net/vedic-astrology-chart-calculator/
The Elemental & Emotional Matrix: The Dakini Mandala of Emotions & The Kaula Lineage of Asana Immersion
w/ Rachel May
Saturdays: 1/13, 2/10, 3/10, 4/21, 5/12, 6/9:
all sessions 12-6pm
Yoga is far more than the asana experience. We are layered bodies of being; and all of these layers resonate with the elements. In Sri Vidya and Tantra, the practice of yoga is often oriented to these elements; to not only give a visceral experience, but a rasa, or “taste” to the subtler realms of being.
In this extensive training, we will dive into the Dakini Mandala of Emotions. The Dakini’s are the priestesses of Kali: and they reside in the realm of our emotions, which our own response to space. This meditation practice is versatile and dynamic; much as each of our own matrices of emotion are. We connect with the Dakini and their element, as well as their essence and wisdom: in order to have a resonance with a higher level of consciousness than our obstructed emotional state allows. The practices in the mandala incorporate vows, taken to give a new response to our emotions; as well as pranayama, meditation and energetic transmissions to build a new emotional intelligence. It is a practice of transformation at the highest and yet most approachable level; giving a life long toolkit for liberating our emotions.
Along with this, we will also move into the Kaula lineage of asana; an elementally based sequencing of asana that works to connect us to the element and the organ systems that are in relationship to it. This asana system focuses first on an internal subtle body orientation: which shifts our physical experience to a deeper level, allowing for an inherent wisdom to guide us on our mats. There is also a brilliant system of physical adjustments we can take as teachers: that support this deep ease and release of tension, stress and samskara.

Thai Yoga Massage w/ Amanda Kramny
Thai Yoga Massage (TYM) is a healing art developed in Thailand that focuses mainly on stimulating and balancing our Sen Lines, pathways of flowing energy throughout the body. Imbalances in the Sen Lines are excessive amounts or depletion of energy that can be affected by lifestyle, age, or physical condition. The Therapist utilizes her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches while also applying muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure during treatment. Many people say Thai Yoga Massage is like doing yoga without any work and describe the session as both relaxing and energizing.
Thai Yoga Massage is usually done on a padded mat on the floor with the receiver fully and comfortably dressed. A typical session is 60 minutes to two hours long. It is recommend that you do not eat a heavy meal before the massage to avoid any digestive discomfort. Please arrive on time and plan a few moments before the session for a consultation to review your health history with the therapist. If you feel discomfort at any time, communicate with your therapist!
Benefits of Thai Yoga Massage include relief from asthma, migraines, anxiety, relief of emotional tension, improved sleep, improved flexibility, greater awareness of body and mind, a release of blocked energy and is also effective for treating specific neruo-muscular injuries, including muscle pain, spasm, dysfunction and chronic tightness.
However, Thai Yoga Massage is not recommend for the people under following conditions:
–An infectious skin disease, rash, or open wounds
-Immediately after surgery
-Immediately after chemotherapy or radiation, unless recommended by your doctor
-Are prone to blood clots since massage may dislodge a clot, check with your doctor before having a massage if you have heart disease
-Pregnant women should check with their doctor before getting Thai Yoga Massage
-Areas that are bruised, inflamed, unhealed, have tumors, abdominal hernias, and recent fractures cannot be massaged
