Holiday Candlelight Restorative Workshop with Terry and Jerry - Saturday, December 14th
Take time our for yourself!!! Join Terry and Jerry as they guide you through an incredible experience combining the yoga restorative poses and the powerful healing meditations of Ho'oponopono, the ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness. Each relaxing posture prepares the body to relax and become receptive to the music designed by Dr. Joe Vitale to resonate and align each of the seven chakras, the main energy sources. The music is also designed to infuse the body with one of the 4 chants of the Ho'oponopono practice: "I'm sorry," "Please forgive me," "I love you," and "Thank you." As the body relaxes , each mantra effectively aligns with the most appropriate corresponding chakra. As the body further releases resistance during the practice of the restorative poses, the benefits of the vibrations will penetrate deeper into our many layers.
Workshop fee: $25.00, West Market Street Studio. Refreshments will be served afterwards. This workshop will be limited to 30 participants and registration is available under "Workshops".
Jyotish & Ayurveda Understanding Your Constitution - Saturday, January 11th
Brendan Feeley M.A., D.Ay., will lead this workshop on Saturday, January 11th, 9:00AM - 12:00PM, West Market Street.
Jyotish (Vedic Astrology) and Ayurveda are an integral part of Vedic philosophy, yoga practice and spiritual development. Jyotish is a Vedanga, a limb of the Vedas, and as such it holds a divine status in the Vedic tradition. Ayurveda is an Upa-Veda, a supplementary or secondary Veda. Knowledge of these two subjects gives us an unique understanding of our mental and physical constitution, or prakriti in terms of the tri-gunas and the tri-dosha. Jyotish does this using the knowledge of the planets, the grahas, and it is excellent for understanding weaknesses in our health as well as the timing of diseases as well as one's longevity. In this workshop, students will learn the fundamental principles of both jyotish and ayurveda to determine the nature of one's prakriti, and more importantly, the vikriti, the dosha gati, the movement of the doshas that eventually gives rise to disease through the use of Vedic astrology.
Brendan Feeley M.A., D.Ay. practices vedic astrology and ayurveda in Rockville, MD. He began his study of the Vedas while living in London in 1975 and he also began his study of western astrology that same year. He has studied Jyotish since 1984 and he has been teaching students about the subject for the past 20 years. He is a professional member of the National Association of Ayurvedic Medicine and a founding member of Council of Vedic Astrology - USA. He holds graduate degrees from Trinity College, University of Dublin and Pacifica Graduate Institute. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-424-6644. His web-site is www.bpfeeley.com.
Workshop fee $35.00, or $30.00 by January 1st - see "Workshops".
Brendan will be available for private consultations Saturday afternoon.

JJ Gormely - Therapeutic Yoga Workshop - February 7th - 9th
JJ Gormley will lead this Therapeutic Yoga Workshop, February 7th - 9th.
The skill-set for a yoga therapist is different from that of a yoga teacher. The yoga therapist is able to adapt many different tools and techniques of yoga in order to help a person heal. The yoga therapist can put a practice together that is unique for an individual, custom designed to help that person heal from whatever ails them. This weekend we will explore three areas of concern that yoga has been found to be successful as a complementary and/or integrative medicine: Auto-Immune Issues, Helping with Addictions and Healing from Trauma/PTSD.
In each of these three topics, JJ will go over some of the current research especially as it regards practices such as yoga and she'll teach particular techniques using tools of yoga that can be beneficial for easing symptoms of each.
