Sankalpa (intention setting) Workshop
Sankalpa is a heartfelt intention. It brings the desire of your heart into action so you can create a life aligned with your heart. In this workshop, we will learn about how we can create this heartfelt intention, move through some yoga poses and relaxation. We will go through a short meditation and finally a journaling exercise to uncover our Sankalpa.
Bring your yoga mat. You can bring your own journal or I will provide pen and paper.
Minimum 4 students required.
We invite you to join us for this deeply nourishing workshop; in which your instructors will work intuitively to create a space of sacred rest and renewal. Sometimes we are called to add elements of Thai therapy, aromatherapy, crystals, singing bowls or drums to the practice. Timed to coincide with the healing power of the new moon, full moon, solstice or equinox, this workshop is an opportunity to honor the creative and nurturing forces within.
In this workshop we will do a gentle flow class to get in touch with our creativity. We will then do a relaxation to let go of the busyness of the mind and tap into intuition and creative energy. After relaxation we will create an abstract watercolor painting. No artistic skill/experience needed. This is all about letting go and creating for the sole purpose of creating.
Bring your yoga mat. Painting supplies will be provided.
Minimum 4 students required.

We can do breakout groups so either way is perfect. The possibilities of the readings are really endless. Come prepared with a question and format in mind or keep it simple and go with a 3-card past/present/future reading for your highest good.

Examples of 3-card reading options: past/present/future mind/body/spirit current situation/obstacle/advice What I think/What I feel/What I do (around a situation, relationship or self) What worked or is working / What didn’t work or isn’t working/ Important lessons What unites you/what divides you/what needs attention (around relationships)
