What is Kripalu Yoga?
“Kripalu yoga is a comprehensive, disciplined approach to self-study that cultivates health, facilitates psychological growth, and transforms one’s sense of self. Kripalu yoga arises from thousands of years of study and practice in fostering spiritual connection to all life and an awakening to the authentic self. It focuses on getting in touch with one’s own innate wisdom and happiness through cultivating nonjudgemental awareness. Teachers guide students through a practice of asana (which could be gentle, moderate, or vigorous), pranayama, and meditation, but neither posture sequences nor instructions are standardized. What distinguishes a Kripalu Yoga class is an emphasis on bringing awareness to the physical sensations, emotions, and thoughts that arise throughout the practice. The way we act and react on the mat becomes a microcosm for the way we act and react in daily life, leading to greater authenticity, equanimity, and happiness”. ~Kripalu Winter catalog 2012
We welcome you to come and visit us.

Crystal Bowl Sound Healing
Saturday February 4th, 4pm. $25 per person
Comeau of Energy Works Studio will provide a relaxing experience of crystal bowl vibrations. Music and sound have been proven scientifically to shift the consciousness of the brain. Crystal singing bowls are powerful tools because of the harmonics and overtones that are created. Doing sound healing therapy can stimulate trance like states of body & mind. The sounds emanating from the bowls allow your brain waves to slow down the Beta, Alpha, Theta, & Delta levels. People can often visit different places outside themselves during a sound healing session. Private tuning fork sessions are available before the sound healing by appointment. This event is offered for $25 per person. Please email to reserve your place: firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information see: http://www.energyworkstudio.com
Mindful Communication Workshop, Continued
Saturday February 11th, 3-5pm. Donation based ($20 per person suggested)
Join Dan Huston for an afternoon of bringing awareness to how you communicate. This will augment the first workshop, but fine for attendees who didn’t make the first one. Communication isn’t as easy as it may seem. Though we have been communicating for decades, that doesn’t mean we always do it well. Most of us have developed unproductive habits and patterns along the way. That doesn’t make us bad people; it just means there’s room for improvement—improvement that could make us more productive and happier. Combining the study of mindfulness with basic communication theory can help us do just that: discover our unproductive habits and take steps toward improving them in a manner that is both disciplined and gentle. Along the way, we become more aware of the fact that the people with whom we interact (at home, at work, at school…) have their own habits that have formed over their lifetimes, their own unique set of experiences that influence their perceptions and behaviors. We become more empathetic and understanding and less judgmental and reactive. As a result, our communication becomes not only more effective but more satisfying and meaningful, as well.
