We often think there are only certain people gifted with creative minds or of being artistic. However, creativity is in our DNA - we just aren't often given an outlet for it.
Join April Puciata for a special practice designed to help students cultivate clarity and creativity by incorporating the Chakras. Chakras are energy centers that reside along the spine. They are themselves an artful and inspirational system that tap into our intuition and creative potential.
Class will begin with a brief discussion about why creativity is important and beneficial to every day life and also how yoga can help us tap into that side of ourselves. Also included will be some tips and exercises on how to incorporate it into your every day living. We'll move into a yoga flow sequence that is designed to balance the chakras and also to burn out tension and blockages in the physical body, which can prevent us from experiencing the subtle body and from tapping into our creative side. Practice will conclude with a special chakra meditation/visualization/relaxation to help bring clarity and quiet to the mind, allowing space for inspiration to flow.
The end of class will consist of a brief creative exercise. You can choose an option that is given or come with something you want to work with. Feel free to bring a notebook, journal, sketch pad, etc. (This will be quiet, reflective time - not a group project - and you will not be asked to share.)

Hours: 10:00a - 12:00p
The Shariras, meaning "bodies" in Sanskrit, are the three destinies of energy that make up the three facets of the Self: the Physical, Subtle, and Causal. The manifestations of the Shariras allow us to work our karma on this plane of consciousness. By deepening our understanding of these energetic bodies, we can deepen our experience in our yoga practices and in our lives. Join April for discussion, grounding asana practice, and meditation to harmonize each layer of our being.
Opening in a vinyasa yoga practice that will strengthen, open, and calm the physical body, this special class welcomes the new sun in high vibration. Upon establishing our visions for the new year, we will direct breath work and meditation that resonates with Sankalpa, the spirit, planting the seed deep for our intentions to build and manifest.
This informal, accessible, and yes, fun discussion redresses notions of the Yoga Sutras as stuffy, incomprehensible writings. Weaving the traditional with a more feminine and intuitive approach, we will explore how the Sutras are important and relative for our practice today. We will also review methods, for teachers, by which to use the Sutras in intriguing and reachable ways durings classes. We will be referring to the texts, The Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali by Sri Swami Satchidananda, and The Secret Power of Yoga: A Woman's Guide to the Heart and Spirit of the Yoga Sutras by Nischala Joy Devi.
Travel through each energy center in this comprehensive practice that begins in fluid asana, connecting peak poses of each Chakra together to move from the root of the body to the crown. Working with yantras and Bija mantras in post-asana meditation, we will bring balance to our energetic systems. Corresponding with those mantras, we will leave class with grounding techniques by which to continue our work and maintain the restoration created together.
