The energy of movement will be captured with Japanese Ink as the artist interprets the flow and movement of each student in a 90 minute slow flow guided by Katie Daehler. Each Yogi will take home a piece of art that was compose during the event and end the evening with a glass of bubbly and treats.

Carrie Beth Waghorn is a contemporary artist specializing in monochromatic renderings of the female form. Both raw and expressive, her work invokes an unadulterated sense of feminine beauty and vulnerability. She uses a minimalistic approach and bold line work to create stunningly simplistic pieces, portraying roles of feminine stereotypes and sexuality. Publications include; Create Mag, Art Mag, Meyer Vogyl Gallery and Charleston City Paper. She currently paints from her sunny studio in Charleston, South Carolina.

Chakras + Aromatherapy + Yin Yoga

Chakras + Aromatherapy + Yin Yoga

Join me for a relaxing Saturday afternoon of Yin yoga and aromatherapy to connect you deeper to the seven major energy centers (chakras) in your body. The theory is that when we become more aware of these seven major energy centers, we begin to bring our unconscious beliefs to our consciousness. Our beliefs influence our behavior and shape our habits, so by bringing them to light, we can become more aware of our behavior patterns and make changes when necessary. Each chakra resides in a physical location in the body and is associated with different organs and body parts. A blockage in the flow of our chi (or prana, as we call it in yoga), through these energy centers and channels can manifest as physical and emotional ailments.

Essential oils, yoga poses, mantras, mudras, colors, bandas, and sounds are all just techniques that allow us to connect deeper to these energy centers and keep the flow of chi (energy) moving freely.

Throughout this workshop, we'll be moving through a series of relaxing yin yoga postures and experiencing seven different essential oils specifically designed to connect you deeper to all seven chakras. 

Investment: $25

Summer Solstice Mala Making Workshop
Jun

2:00 PM14:00

Summer Solstice Mala Making Workshop

Community Yoga is offering another seasonal mala making workshop that coincides perfectly with the summer solstice!

Mala beads have been used in many different cultures as prayer beads and as a tool for facilitating meditation. Commonly strung with 108 beads, they can be used to count mantras or prayers during meditation.

Making your own mala is especially powerful because you are infusing your own energy and intention into the beads. The process of making a mala encourages mindfulness and allows you to connect to your own power of intention.

Join Katie D. as she guides you through the steps for making your very own inspired and unique mala. The workshop will begin with Sun Salutations to warm the body, focus the mind, and cultivate an intention to infuse into your mala. You'll choose a mantra or intention to infuse into your beads as you string them, and then bless your finished product with a special blend of essential oils. She'll guide you through a short meditation at the end so you'll know how to use your mala in your own meditation practice.

Cheers to releasing and renewing for the summer season!

ROOT to RISE Sisterhood + Yoga Event
Mar

ROOT to RISE Sisterhood + Yoga Event

Could sisterhood and yoga be the two most powerful forces in women's health?

We think so.

Did you know?...
Half of U.S. women are on a diet. 
25 million suffer from compulsive overeating.
90% of women are dissatisfied with their bodies.
Millions are suffering in silence with eating disorders and low self-esteem to try and fit an expectation of "perfection" that just doesn't exist.

So how do we rise above and teach our sisters, daughters, mothers, and girl friends to do the same?

Yoga + Sisterhood.

Women have been coming together in sisterhood since the beginning of time and continue to do so in cultures all over the world to help support each other, raise children, and lift each other up. 

A Harvard study has shown that women who have close female friendships are staying happier and healthier as they age.

Women need the restorative power of a tribe of sisters. A 2006 breast cancer study found that women with close friends were 4x more likely to survive the disease. Harvard research report that strong social ties could promote brain health as we age.

When women support each other, incredible things happen.

Join us for this very special yoga and sisterhood event.

Katie Daehler will be leading us through an empowering yoga flow to tap us into our Divine Feminine Badass, followed by a sacred sister circle in communion with each other. If you've never experienced the power of a sister circle, then this event is a MUST for you.

Katie is also kicking off ROOT to RISE, her 8-week group Holistic Health Coaching + Sisterhood on March 20th. Find out more and apply here:
