New Moon SoulCollage®️ with Natalie Miller
Jun 1, 2019 - Dec 21, 2019
 

When the sun and moon conjoin in the sky, our nights are dark and starry. Tradition says this is a perfect time to pause, self-reflect, listen deep within, and set intuitive intentions for our best way forward.

Join Natalie to practice SoulCollage®, a creative and intuitive process through which we invite our minds to listen to the embodied wisdom of our hearts and guts. SoulCollage® is excellent for strengthening our ability to listen in, and for integrating the various aspects of ourselves.

In each workshop, we’ll explore the astrological themes of the particular month’s New Moon, then create a meaningful and beautiful SoulCollage®. We’ll leave with deeply-seeded, soul-felt intention for the next lunar cycle.

Everybody welcome - no matter how creative/artistic you believe you are - and all materials for your first session are provided.

African Americans & Africa Book Signing w/Nemata Blyden
Jul 20, 2019 - Jul 20, 2019
 
We are so proud of our Yogi sister Nemata Blyden on her recent book releasing! We invite you to join us for a book signing to celebrate this accomplishment and work of love.

From The Front Cover:
What is an 'African American' and how does this identity relate to the African continent? Rising immigration levels, globalization, and the United States' first African American president have all sparked new dialogue around the question. This book provides an introduction to the relationship between African Americans and Africa from the era of slavery to the present, mapping several overlapping diasporas. The diversity of African American identities through relationships with region, ethnicity, slavery, & immigration are all examined to investigate questions fundamental to the study of African American history and culture.

Woven Green Drum Making Workshop
Jul 20, 2019 - Jul 20, 2019
 
Join us for an afternoon of meditation and creation. We will begin with a Smudging Ceremony Meditation – Honoring the elements, water, air, fire, earth and the four directions. Calling the spirit of your drum, preparing the hoop, pulling the hides and creating your mallet. Setting your intention – offering your drum in service.

We will then begin crafting our drums. Step by step drum making instruction – when you arrive for the workshop, the heads and lacing will have been soaked in ceremonial water. After the initial smudging ceremony, meditation and blessing, you will learn to weave the lacing on your drum in the four directions pattern. This will be an opportunity for you to begin connecting with the spirit of your drum.

Once we complete the drum lacing, we will then create the beater for your drum. The drum will take 2-3 days to fully dry before it can be played. The drum face can later be painted if desired (acrylic paint recommended). Feathers and beads may also be used to personalize your drum.

 
There is a 2-part registration for this workshop. First, please register through My BodYoga for the workshop, there is a $55 workshop fee. Then you will need to choose and purchase your drum kit through Woven Green (see link below). Cost varies depending on your chosen drum kit, hide, and hoop size and range from $112-$145.
 
The deadline to register & order your drum kit is July 8 at 11AM.

Vinyasa & Vino
Jul 26, 2019 - Jul 26, 2019
 

This event is perfect for first timers to yoga but is challenging enough to give even the most practiced yogis a challenging session. Our instructors modify each movement to accommodate all fitness levels. Participants begin with a Vinyasa Flow Yoga class and end with a glass (or two!) of wine.

Reiki Level 2 Certification
Jul 28, 2019 - Jul 28, 2019
 
Join Lynette Sprowls for Reiki Level 2 training in the Usui Reiki system. This next step of your Reiki journey will build on to the Reiki 1 (which is a prerequisite).
 
When you are attuned to Reiki Level 2, you become more aware of the importance of your connected wholeness on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual; wholeness and balanced health become synonymous.
 
Attunement to Reiki Level 2 opens your heart chakra, which is the mid-point and connector between the physical and spiritual or universal realms. Once your heart chakra opens, your intuition increases and your sensitivity to subtle energies are heightened.
 
Your desire to become attuned to Reiki Level 2 will happen when you are ready to move further into the deeper dimensions of healing with Reiki such as….. Distant/absentee healing
Healing deeper traumas
Healing crises
Healing relationships
Healing situations (personal or global)
Healing situations from the past, present or the future
 
Upon receiving 2nd level attunement, you will learn the three sacred symbols, their form, their sound, and their meaning, which will enable you to consciously direct Reiki energy through your mind (calling the energy) to achieve specific results. The practice of healing through 2nd degree can be profound, as it is considered a quantum leap forward on your spiritual path, indicating your soul’s desire to be of service to others through sharing unconditional love.
 
What is an Attunement? In Japanese, this ceremony is called Reiju (pronounced Ray-joo) and translated, it means spiritual energy blessing. In a modern-day ceremony, your body moves into a spiritual state (or universal energy state) through the use of ancient sounds or symbols, which harmonize your mental and emotional bodies, plus also aligns your spiritual essence within to re-connect you to your true “self” (or your soul). The attunement also clears your meridians (energy pathways) throughout your body to allow Ki energy to flow freely.
 
The Reiki Master Teacher does not have any special powers to pass along but merely acts as a channel to provide or create a safe place for you to draw in Ki energy, thus allowing you to connect universal life force energy (or Source) to your inner self or soul. You will draw Ki energy to the level where you specifically need it – mental, emotional, physical or spiritual levels By receiving attunement at each Reiki level, you accept universal blessings to support your journey of self-responsibility for your own spiritual progress.
 
Your success for your personal journey depends entirely on how much time and effort you are willing to apply; the more effort you make, the more blessings you receive. The main purpose of an attunement is to raise your energy level, plus strengthen your connection to universal spiritual energy.
 
 
Course includes:
-Class manual
-Class certificate
 
The class is a combination of lecture, discussion, and experience. Practice time includes giving and receiving a complete Reiki treatment using all the hand positions, the self -treatment, practice using all the level 2 symbols and learning how to do the long-distant healing.
 
There is a minimum of 2 people registered needed or the class will be rescheduled.

Course In Miracles Book Club
Jul 29, 2019 - Jul 29, 2019
 
The Course In Miracles is self-study spiritual text that teaches that the way to love and inner peace is through forgiveness. Even though the language of the Course is that of traditional Christianity, it expresses a non-sectarian, non-denominational spirituality. A Course in Miracles is therefore a universal spiritual teaching, not a religion. The Course states that “its goal for you is happiness and peace.” The text also explains the basis for fear and guilt, and how they can be overcome thought miracles, which are defined as the maximal “expressions of love.” The miracle is defined as the shift in perception from fear to love. Questioning our current beliefs, understanding we see the world through the filter of our own perceptions and that our emotions are always a result of fear or love are core concepts examined by the course. The language of the Course is often difficult for many to understand and so for this class we will start with the book Journey Beyond Words by Brent Haskell. This book brings a new and refreshing simplicity to many of the seemly difficult concepts of the Course. We will meet every other Monday and the only needed material is the Journey Beyond Words book. You can purchase the book on Amazon is the paperback or kindle version.
 
There is no cost for the class instead a donation of $5-10 per class is appreciated. All the funds will go to Charity Water https://www.charitywater.org/.
 
charity: water is a nonprofit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries.
 
The founder Scott Harrison shows how changing your mindset can change not only your life. Watch the video on how Scott began the organization here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UE9UvT5ujyg.
 
The class will be facilitated by Lynette Sprowls, a student of the Course In Miracles.
 
The class will be held every other Monday.

Angel Time with B
Aug 10, 2019 - Aug 10, 2019
 
Come join together, in a safe and loving environment, to offer and to receive messages from the angels.

We will open by setting our focus, and calling in our Angels. Names are drawn to determine who will receive messages, and who will assist in sharing messages. If you have your own cards, feel free to bring them with you, or choose from available decks provided. B will call in the individual's Angels, and share messages, and will also provide guidance and assistance for group members sharing messages.

Beth Carleton, simply known as “B”, is an Ordained Angel Minister, ANGEL THERAPY PRACTITIONER ®, Certified Angel Messenger, Reiki Master and author. She delivers angel messages for clients throughout the world in person, via telephone, and Skype and now as a guest presenter at My BodYoga. I met B last year, she literally has a waiting list of about a months to a year. My experience has been so surreal, because she immediately can see angels, and calls them by name. Since then, I have had Angel Time with B at social gatherings, with fascination of what transpires, I'm so drawn in. I am still amazed how information shared is so on point and personal that no one could ever know, well, except for our guardian angles.
B's angels have been guiding her, showing her the way all along, while blossoming her connection with the omnipresent essence of angelic beings. She wants us to encourage us to connect and create with our angels as well. We are guided and protected and so very loved.
I can't even begin to explain or share her touching and beautiful real life story of how she was healed from a brain tumor as she tells it so eloquently. It was her angels who appeared to her, to deliver her a message of her healing and the journey begins. She took this experience to heart and soul, the healing was revealed and a miracle had been witnessed by herself, her family and the medical world. A team of physicians just in amazement to this unexplainable medical phenomenon, she then began to be guided onto this path of encouraging others with love and kindness to carry out the work, her angels had called her to do.

Cost is $20. Attendance for this event is limited to 11 individuals.

Sattva Yoga Workshop
Aug 24, 2019 - Aug 24, 2019
 
Sattva Yoga is an integrated practice of Yoga, which comes from Kriya Yoga from the Babaji Lineage of Paramahansa Yogananda, through Anand Mehrotra. In Sanskrit, “sattva” means lucidity, lightness, happiness, tranquility, and non-attachment. Kriya means action that leads us to evolution, expansion, and liberation. In Sanskrit, Kri means action, to do; and ya is another name for Atman, or Soul. Kriya is a Himalayan Kundalini technique or action designed to create an evolutionary response. The purpose of kriya is to get access to deeper states of shunya, or unity consciousness. Kriyas work to generate electricity by combining repetitive movements and mantras to create a moving meditation. This movement of electricity helps to awaken and transform ones' energy to create a physical, psychological, and spiritual shift in one's being. Kriyas can prevent injuries and assist in healing at the cellular level as prana is awakened and heat is ignited from the inside out. Whereas it takes 30 minutes for asana to have a deep, penetrating effect, with kriyas it takes just minutes. Kriya is used in different traditions, such as the Babaji Lineage, the Kundalini Tradition, and the classical Hatha tradition. Although the practices vary according to the tradition, the common thread and purpose of Kriya is for evolutionary action.

The Sattva Yoga practice is an integration of Hatha Yoga, meditation, prānāyāma (Yogic breathing), Kriya, mantra, freedom movement, and transcendental wisdom. More specifically, it incorporates the five main threads of Yoga:

Raja: asana (physical yoga poses), meditation

Tantra: pranayama, Kriya, naad (yoga of sound), Himalayan kundalini, Laya movements

Jñāna: satsang (Q&A), wisdom talks, study of ancient yoga texts

Bhakti: sacred rituals, kirtan, sangha (community), partner work

Karma: seva (selfless service); ayurveda; and conscious eating, consumption, conversation, and parenting

A practice of Kriya is a tool for people to increase their ability to hold and sustain rising energy of kundalini. This practice is great for those who have had an awakening, and are looking for a holistic practice to integrate and guide their own shakti energy.

Sattva Yoga is a method that strengthens the energetic body for a smooth transition into awakening as well. We use Sattva Yoga to prepare ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually for the transformative experience available through accessing the deep reservoir of intelligent energy of the universe. Although Kriyas work to generate electricity, asana and freedom movement work to integrate the generated energy into the body, making sattva yoga an incredibly grounding practice.

Kriyas are a technique that teach us to master our own energy field. Each Kriya connects with a different energetic frequency, some leading us to the heart intelligence in a meditative manner, called laya movements, some invoking transcendental states, some
move energy through voice, others through mantra and breath. Together in a guided experience, each journey is taught with a specific intention, combining the transformative practice of Kriya, pranayama, asana, mantra, ecstatic dance, and more in an integrative
yogic experience.

In a study conducted by Stanford University, it was found that Kriya Yoga was able to bring down hypertension in patients. Studies have also found that the Kriya exercises aim at calming a patient’s mind and reducing anxiety and depression by almost 67%. In the practice of Sattva Yoga, the entire human system is energized in a very short amount of time. All of the internal organs are activated as they secrete necessary hormones and enzymes to keep the body fit. As well, with this practice there will be sufficient blood circulation to the brain and spine for balanced supply of oxygen to every party of the body. Although Kriyas produce incredible health benefits, Sattva Yoga is particularly designed for transformation, personal growth, and a steady awakening into our full potential.

For thousands of years Kriya Yoga from the Babaji Lineage was only offered from guru to disciple, however with the worldwide interest in awakening, the practice is slowly beginning to be offered in more settings by initiated teachers. This practice was passed down to Anand Mehrotra, who has taught myself and other Sattva Yoga teachers the fully integrated practice of yoga.

Yoga for Care Partners with Cheryl Kravitz
Sep 7, 2019 - Sep 28, 2019
 

Caregivers—or the newer term, care partners—are likely to experience emotional stress and other negative impacts on their health or well-being. Most care partners had no choice about taking on their caregiving responsibilities, thus experiencing increased strain and stress—and the physical and mental health ramifications that come with these emotions.

Care partners come in many forms. You might be supporting your mother, father, child or other loved one. You might be in a profession that calls upon those skills. Many care partners don’t take time to pay attention to themselves. During these four weeks we will discuss ways to support ourselves and one another so we can be there fully for the person we are helping.

Gentle poses, meditation, breathing, and restoratives will be part of our practice. Appropriate for all levels, including those with no prior yoga experience. Students are encouraged to bring a journal or notebook. We will also work on personal vision boards.

How To Teach Grounded Vinyasa Flow with Francesca Cervero
Sep 7, 2019 - Sep 8, 2019
 
This training is for teachers whose initial trainings were in a style other than vinyasa yoga, but find they are gravitating towards towards teaching that style and want to learn a framework that allows them to teach vinyasa yoga more skillfully. The training will help hatha teachers bring more movement to their teaching, and will help vinyasa teachers bring more teaching into their movement.
 
Part 1
We will cover what is at the heart of a vinyasa yoga class, how to set a clear metronome, and how to cue breath in a supportive, not restrictive way. We will also have a short practice and begin to learn some vinyasa templates to make incorporating this style into your teaching more seamless.

Part 2
Part 2 will build on Part 1 and will cover different kinds of sequencing and how to offer modifications and variations within the context of movement. Teachers will also have an opportunity to practice teaching this style and build on the templates we learned in Part 1.

Angel Time with B
Sep 14, 2019 - Sep 14, 2019
 
Come join together, in a safe and loving environment, to offer and to receive messages from the angels.

We will open by setting our focus, and calling in our Angels. Names are drawn to determine who will receive messages, and who will assist in sharing messages. If you have your own cards, feel free to bring them with you, or choose from available decks provided. B will call in the individual's Angels, and share messages, and will also provide guidance and assistance for group members sharing messages.

Beth Carleton, simply known as “B”, is an Ordained Angel Minister, ANGEL THERAPY PRACTITIONER ®, Certified Angel Messenger, Reiki Master and author. She delivers angel messages for clients throughout the world in person, via telephone, and Skype and now as a guest presenter at My BodYoga. I met B last year, she literally has a waiting list of about a months to a year. My experience has been so surreal, because she immediately can see angels, and calls them by name. Since then, I have had Angel Time with B at social gatherings, with fascination of what transpires, I'm so drawn in. I am still amazed how information shared is so on point and personal that no one could ever know, well, except for our guardian angles.
B's angels have been guiding her, showing her the way all along, while blossoming her connection with the omnipresent essence of angelic beings. She wants us to encourage us to connect and create with our angels as well. We are guided and protected and so very loved.
I can't even begin to explain or share her touching and beautiful real life story of how she was healed from a brain tumor as she tells it so eloquently. It was her angels who appeared to her, to deliver her a message of her healing and the journey begins. She took this experience to heart and soul, the healing was revealed and a miracle had been witnessed by herself, her family and the medical world. A team of physicians just in amazement to this unexplainable medical phenomenon, she then began to be guided onto this path of encouraging others with love and kindness to carry out the work, her angels had called her to do.

Cost is $20. Attendance for this event is limited to 11 individuals.

Bandhas & Breath Workshop
Sep 21, 2019 - Sep 21, 2019
 
Bandhas & Breath Workshop
Learn to initiate all movement from the navel. Your yoga practice will begin to blossom into the understanding that the energetic lock points deep within the body. Learning where these bandhas are rooted with the practice of (pranayama) breathing will help you expand that (prana) life force that can be channeled on a deep physical, emotional and energetic level allowing thoughts, emotions, reactions, and intentions to channel as well.
The navel is the center from which we derive our sense of self and initiate all movement. It is also an important source of vitality and health in the body. This workshop will explore the physical, emotional, and subtle realms of the navel, which will include practicing uddiyana bandha, kundalini kriya, breath work, asana and meditation. You will learn and practice each bandha (Mula Bandha, Uddyjana, and Jalandhara Bandha). You will also learn how to apply bandhas in asana to create a more patient and supported practice.
Recommendation: do not eat anything at least 2 hours before the workshop begins.

Making Your Reiki More Efficient

This workshop is for those who have been Reiki certified in level 1 or 2, and are looking for an opportunity to learn techniques that will help improve, refine and strengthen your Reiki energy. Often after being certified in Reiki people are unsure of how to work with the energy and are looking for further guidance and growth before moving to the next level.

Each level of reiki builds on one another, proficiency is developed through practice on oneself as well as others. To strength and understand your energy you need to practice and use it. Here are some of the topics that will be covered, however, we want this to be an interactive workshop that is led by the needs of the participants.

  • Meditation to help you connect with the Reiki energy.
  • Understanding the new sensations of Reiki energy in your body and those around you.
  • Understanding the essence of and how to apply the symbols given through the attunements (for level 2).

Reiki Level 2 Certification
Sep 29, 2019 - Sep 29, 2019
 
Join Lynette Sprowls for Reiki Level 2 training in the Usui Reiki system. This next step of your Reiki journey will build on to the Reiki 1 (which is a prerequisite).
 
When you are attuned to Reiki Level 2, you become more aware of the importance of your connected wholeness on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual; wholeness and balanced health become synonymous.
 
Attunement to Reiki Level 2 opens your heart chakra, which is the mid-point and connector between the physical and spiritual or universal realms. Once your heart chakra opens, your intuition increases and your sensitivity to subtle energies are heightened.
 
Your desire to become attuned to Reiki Level 2 will happen when you are ready to move further into the deeper dimensions of healing with Reiki such as….. Distant/absentee healing
Healing deeper traumas
Healing crises
Healing relationships
Healing situations (personal or global)
Healing situations from the past, present or the future
 
Upon receiving 2nd level attunement, you will learn the three sacred symbols, their form, their sound, and their meaning, which will enable you to consciously direct Reiki energy through your mind (calling the energy) to achieve specific results. The practice of healing through 2nd degree can be profound, as it is considered a quantum leap forward on your spiritual path, indicating your soul’s desire to be of service to others through sharing unconditional love.
 
What is an Attunement? In Japanese, this ceremony is called Reiju (pronounced Ray-joo) and translated, it means spiritual energy blessing. In a modern-day ceremony, your body moves into a spiritual state (or universal energy state) through the use of ancient sounds or symbols, which harmonize your mental and emotional bodies, plus also aligns your spiritual essence within to re-connect you to your true “self” (or your soul). The attunement also clears your meridians (energy pathways) throughout your body to allow Ki energy to flow freely.
 
The Reiki Master Teacher does not have any special powers to pass along but merely acts as a channel to provide or create a safe place for you to draw in Ki energy, thus allowing you to connect universal life force energy (or Source) to your inner self or soul. You will draw Ki energy to the level where you specifically need it – mental, emotional, physical or spiritual levels By receiving attunement at each Reiki level, you accept universal blessings to support your journey of self-responsibility for your own spiritual progress.
 
Your success for your personal journey depends entirely on how much time and effort you are willing to apply; the more effort you make, the more blessings you receive. The main purpose of an attunement is to raise your energy level, plus strengthen your connection to universal spiritual energy.
 
 
Course includes:
-Class manual
-Class certificate
 
The class is a combination of lecture, discussion, and experience. Practice time includes giving and receiving a complete Reiki treatment using all the hand positions, the self -treatment, practice using all the level 2 symbols and learning how to do the long-distant healing.
 
There is a minimum of 2 people registered needed or the class will be rescheduled.

Divine Feminine Ceremony
Oct 4, 2019 - Oct 4, 2019
 
Divine Feminine Ceremony
Diving into our highest awareness and creative potential as we achieve balance between two sides of ourselves. "Consciousness is basically divided up into the ‘masculine’ side and the ‘feminine’ side, the Divine Feminine represents the connection to the part of your consciousness responsible for nurture, intuition, and empathy, regardless of your gender.
 
Women have this sacred bond as soul sisters and an unspoken intuition to nurture our souls, create, and connect with that feminine energy within ourselves and others to fuel us into the divine energy that we thrive in. This ‘Divine Goddess Circle’ signifies clearing space so we can bring in what lights us up and inspires us. We will give thanks for all who show up in the circle. We will practice several heart opening rituals that ignite the fire within us. This circle is a sharing circle as we hold space for one another in confidence as we trust in our sisterhood to support us in the ritual of release we will share together. The sealing of our confidence and connection brings us to end with overflowing gratitude. Back in the day when we were surrounded by our tribe, women worked together. Nowadays one is perceived to go at it alone. And you may notice that if you go weeks without seeing your soul sistas, you feel off. Our hope is to create a safe space for our divine feminine to feel empowered.
Everyone leaves with a healing crystal that is infused with the collective energy of the group. -Bring your own crystals -Bring your sage -Bring your essential oils
Cost: $25 with pre-registration; $30 at the door

Personally and collectively, we all experience periods of life that test our character and capacity to cope. Whether we are able to learn and grow as we meet these challenges or feel victimized by circumstances beyond our control may rest largely on the way we treat ourselves in the process. In this workshop, we will look at how strategic self-care can play a game-changing role in our ability to thrive and be flexible with what life brings. The heart of the workshop will be experiential practice of a variety of essential self-care practices that research shows to promote resilience.

No prior yoga or meditation experience required.

Moving Well with a Healthy Spine and Joints with Maria Hamburger
Oct 13, 2019 - Oct 13, 2019
 

A healthy spine is a fluidly moving one. In this workshop, we will learn how to access the different sections of the spine to move with more freedom, support and comfort. Articulation of each segment of the spine is the first step to engaging and strengthening the core stomach muscles that in turn support the vertical column that is critical to moving well through life.

We will also address joint stability and mobility through controlled articular rotation (CARS). This is an efficient and healthy system for bringing active rotational movement to all the joints in the body. In our daily lives, we tend to limit our joint mobility, leaving gaps and weakening unused portions of our joints. Through the mindful rotation of our joints, we will build greater joint health and overall movement facility.

Autumn Harvest Workshop: Yoga, Qi Gong, & Meditation with James Foulkes
Oct 26, 2019 - Oct 26, 2019
 

As we enter Autumn, we harvest the growth of Spring and Summer and, like the trees, bring our energy inward to lighten up and release old leaves we no longer need.

Autumn is the most potent season for intuition and vision and is associated with the Metal Element in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In this workshop, we will focus on rejuvenating and invigorating the Organs and Meridians (energy channels) of the Metal Element - the Lungs and Intestines and the transmutation of their negative emotional characteristics.

The Metal energy of Autumn is an expression of new Yin. We will balance the Yin nature of gentle, cleansing asana stretches and breathwork with complementary Yang practices, whilst using meditation, journeying, and deep inward listening to open to our intuitive gifts.

Students of all levels welcome. In Silver Spring.
