Transcendental Breathwork Workshop

With Megan Gouldner  Friday, May 5, 6:30 – 8:30 PM

$45 in advance, $50 at the door

For thousands of years Yogis, Sages and Shamans have used systems of breath work for mastering fear, healing illness and attaining states of enlightenment. In this workshop, Megan will guide you through a powerful technique: a safe conscious-connected breath cycle to help stimulate the body’s natural ability to cleanse itself and heal limiting thought patterns and belief systems trapped within our cellular memory.  Some benefits include:

  • 70% of biochemical toxins are removed from the body through the breath. Conscious Breathing is a detox.
  • Conscious Connected Breathing helps balance the hemispheres of the brain, enhancing the endocrine, nervous and cardiorespiratory systems.
  • This technique supports emotional integration

Join us as we celebrate the Wheel of the Year, breathing into the magnificent power of Spring invoking new life, a rebirth and the remembrance of the that which you already are. We look forward to breathing with you!  Bring a yoga mat and a cozy blanket.

Megan Gouldner is a Non-Verbal Communication Specialist, Seminar Leader and an Alternative Medicine Practitioner. She has created an eclectic system of Bodywork based on the Collard Method – combining the observation of Body Language, Structural Integration, Energy Healing and Intuition.  The breath is a powerful tool for transformation. Learning to access its power is a gift, one I am honored to share. If you have further questions, feel free to email Megan at: artoflistening@me.com

Friday Night Yoga Nidra

With Jackie Owen, Friday, June 2nd  6:30- 8:00  PM

$22 or a class from your card. No reservations needed.

Finish the work week with a relaxing yoga practice.   We will begin with 45 minutes of gentle yoga, slowly and mindfully stretching the body while incorporating the awareness of breath.  Moving with the breath, we’ll release the tension of the week helping you to relax and unwind.  The gentle movement will prepare you for an extended 45 minute Yoga Nidra practice.  Yoga Nidra, or “yogic sleep” is a guided meditation for deep relaxation that turns off “fight or flight” and turns on the relaxation response, the body’s natural healing state.  It is a systematic method of complete relaxation and peace not only for the physical body but for the deeper emotional and mental systems.  Experience deep calm, quiet and clarity as it relaxes you at every level of your being so you feel a sense of wholeness.
