New Year Yoga Nidra with Jean Papagni
Often we get so caught up in the “doing” of our lives, that we forget to slow down to reflect on who we are “being” and what we REALLY want in our life. Instead of creating another new year’s resolution, in this 2-hour workshop, Jean will provide sacred space to set meaningful intentions for your new year related to your state of being vs your state of doing.
During the Yoga Nidra practice you will lie on your back with bolsters and blankets so you are fully supported and comfortable, which allows for profound muscular release and mental relaxation. This level of deep relaxation creates the perfect environment to see new ideas and desires. During the guided meditation you remain in a transformational state between wakefulness and deep sleep that enhances physical, mental, and emotional sense of well-being. The practice stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, reduces cortisol levels and helps the body release long held tension and stress. It is said that the benefits of a Yoga Nidra class are comparable to 3-4 hours of deep, restful sleep.

The Power of Crystal Gridding: Manifest, Heal, Realize with Hillary Shanahan
Crystal grids are a combination of crystals laid out over a sacred geometry pattern. They work together energetically toward an intention we set. Often crystals are chosen with a specific intention such as love, abundance, or healing. When laid out over the grid, the crystal energy is amplified, and you can use this amplified energy and direct it toward your intention.
This class will provide you with a starter set of crystals, a grid, and the knowledge you will need to get started using crystal healing energy to help you amplify and manifest your intentions into reality.
