Wake Up + Make Some NOISE!

JeanMazzeiMakeNoise_flyer-02.jpg

Jean Mazzei and Maggie Silverman are calling your creative spirit! This powerful duo bring an afternoon of exciting and creative exploration of the body, mind and soul through yoga, movement, art and play.

Liberate the hidden physical, mental and imaginal landscapes which hold keys to the blocks, the potential, the incredible purpose you hold in this world for compassion and self love. 

If your body could speak? What would it say? What secrets does it hold? What are you ready to hear? Our bodies and souls are mirrors that reflect parts of who we are, our relationships to others and to the world.

Unlock your story and free your creativity through the awareness of your physical, mental and emotional bodies.

Embody the changes you need in order to live a more passionate, creative, and authentic life. 

Class begins with dharma talk and is followed by a yoga practice. After a short break, we play with non-traditional movement explorations, art, and other forms of self-expression as you unleash those messages and personal narratives held in the body through different creative mediums.

Bring a journal and writing instrument. Paper and oil crayon will be provided.

Cost:

$88 before Jan 15, $108 after.

WHAT WE COVER

As we discover more about self-love, we use the principle of “adhikara” or “the next steps” to design the journey into the center of your own heart. Each unique heart has a unique path, so the topic for each monthly lab will reflect the hearts that are present.

Topics May Include:

  • My light is getting bigger. How do I expand my current reality to receive love from myself and others in a bigger way?
  • Unpacking ego: How do I manage my ego? How does my ego serve me?
  • Am I hiding from my own light?
  • Now that my light is bigger, what changes am I willing to acknowledge around me?
  • "Getting Bigger" isn't what I thought it was going to be! Help!
  • How do I start to find more connection with myself?

Lighten Your Heart - Change Your Perspective

Brenna_Headshot_2015pink.jpg

It is hard to feel optimistic in these uncertain times around the world. We walk around with a sense of dread and heaviness that we have grown to accept as normal. With this heaviness, we begin to lose the ability to not only help others but to help ourselves. In this expansive class, we will learn how to take care of ourselves by working directly with the heart. We will do a unique practice including asana, pranayama, and meditation that will empower and reenergize our passions.

Yoga And The Fire of Transformation

Brenna_Headshot_2015pink.jpg

Yoga is a method to expand our capacity and achieve that which we previously were incapable of. Each time we practice asana (postures), we feel our bodies growing a little looser and a little stronger. Also we build Agni or the fire needed to keep disease at bay and for transformation mentally and spiritually. When a Yogi experiences a truly vibrant life, seeing the beauty in all things, we call this sri. Sri (resplendence) only comes when agni is bright enough to digest this thing called Life. In this workshop, we will explore asana, breath, bandhas, mantra and meditation to cultivate sri.

Go from being “a-shamed” to being “a shaman.” Shame, the fear of being embarrassed or ashamed of ourselves can be crippling wet blanket, masking creativity, intuition, and connection to your highest purpose, aka the Self. In this class, we will dissect and diffuse the power that shame can hold on us consciously and unconsciously, inspiring us to take the necessary steps to free ourselves from these stifling chains of self doubt and unworthiness. Learn practical tools and techniques to help ourselves “die the Shaman’s death” and arise from the ashes of our past as the Phoenix that is your highest Self. This workshop takes a look at how our darkest moments can be the source of our greatest light. Topics include: -Transform body shame -Investigate money shame -Dissect self doubt -Understand unworthiness -Use of asana to help transform negative patterns -Targeted pranayama and meditation techniques -How to use the dark to find the Light within

This workshop will begin with a 1 hour discussion, followed by a 2 hour asana, pranayama, and meditation practice chock full of deep forward bends, twists and hip openers. Visualization, kriya and meditation designed so you rise from the ashes and experience the light of who you really are!
