Cacao Ceremony and Journey

A Restorative Evening with Cacao

sacred cacao.jpg

 With Nicole Gnutzman

A lusciously Restorative Cacao Medicine Journey featuring a gentle ceremonial cacao for a soft, sweet inner journey accompanied by a special sound bath healing playlist. This evening ceremony is 2 hours, a slightly shorter but still powerful version of our Saturday series.

Cacao medicine journeys are a deeply somatic, dreamlike experience that connect mind-body-spirit-soul, while facilitating an inner sense of renewed inspiration, clarity, and inner reconnection.

This practice honors shamanic tradition and wisdom by calling in the life force energies of the Directions and Elements, Spirit Animals, Star Beings and Ancestors. After you drink the cacao, which is pure, raw ceremonial cacao from Guatemala, hand selected and blessed by a shaman, and sweetened with honey and spices, you deepen into the experience through a guided visual meditation that supports inner connection, and allows you to fully relax and journey with the sacred music that follows. 

This gentle healing journey
*reconnects you to your inner world
*accesses inner guidance and heart wisdom
*restores inner balance and a sense of wholeness
*inspires creativity and innovation
*improves mental clarity and focus

How to prepare for ceremony: For optimal effect of the cacao, it's best to fast for 3 hours before and partake lightly of caffeine and dairy for the day. Hydrating with water, before, during and after ceremony, and drinking electrolytes, is advised as cacao is a mild diuretic and detoxifier. 

Medication contraindicators: Cacao is not recommended for people who are taking heart medicine or anti-depressants. If you are taking one of these medications, you are always welcome to join us in ceremony without cacao. It is a beautiful experience all on its own.

What we’ll be drinking: A warm cacao elixir of ceremonial Tantric Rose Blossom cacao blended with spices and raw honey.

What to bring: For your journey, bring a yoga mat, blanket (pillow optional) to create a cacao cocoon as we lie down on the floor for a good portion of ceremony, a bottle of water, and a journal and pen. If you’d like to bring a crystal or mala or other sacred object to have with you or place on the altar, please do. 

Intention for ceremony: You may wish to take a moment to reflect on your intention for ceremony: it could be for self care and nurturing; inner reconnection and healing; or deeper connection with Spirit, loved ones or ancestors. Opening, allowing and receiving the gifts of IxCacao, the Spirit of Cacao, will create a profoundly beautiful experience.

Register before April 22nd and the workshop is only $50!

Bliss Into Meditation: Spinal Release Yoga Therapy Workshop

With Lauren Ziegler

Spinal Release Photo.jpg

Spinal Release Yoga Therapy goes beyond other restorative or meditative approaches. The simple, yet profound poses directly decompress the five segments of your vertebral column: tailbone, sacrum, psoas, rib cage and cervical. As you release spinal tension, you settle your mind, and problematic mental and emotional patterns mapped in the subtle body begin to resolve. 

Individual attention, meticulous alignment, hands-on adjustments, and supportive props ensure that the process is effective and personalized. The space is held in a nurturing, grounded way — with an emphasis on undoing, turning within and letting go. Instructions will be clear and only 4-5 poses are used throughout the workshop. This is deeply healing and will make your meditation practice much more blissful and enjoyable.

Register before April 26th and the workshop is only $35!

Sound_Rejuvenation_Soulstice (1).jpg

Enter the new week with calm and ease. Join us on this deeply relaxing acoustic sound journey into inner peace and tranquility. 

The evening includes three closely knitted parts to enhance relaxation. In the preparation phase, we do practices that help us to release any tension in the body and the mind to become more aware of the present moment. This will included simple movement, breathing and vocal practices. You will then lay down and enter into the soothing sound immersion journey allowing spaciousness and deep relaxation. The class will end with a chant to bring us safely back into the reality.

Sound healing reinforces our mind/body/soul connection, enhances wellbeing and at the same time builds our capacity to be fully present in our lives. 

After the event, attendees have described feeling "Ethereal", "Grounded", "Serene", "Noodle-y" and "Peaceful"

No previous experience is required. Please wear something warm and comfortable. Bring a pillow, blanket, yoga mat, eye cover and anything that will help you relax and be cozy as you lay down.

Cacao Medicine Journeys

A journey to inner reconnection, healing and wholeness

sacred cacao.jpg

 with Nicole Gnutzman

Cacao medicine journeys are a deeply somatic, dreamlike experience that connect mind-body-spirit-soul, while facilitating an inner sense of renewed inspiration, clarity, and inner reconnection.

This practice honors shamanic tradition and wisdom by calling in the life force energies of the Directions and Elements, Spirit Animals, Star Beings and Ancestors. After you drink the cacao, which is pure, raw ceremonial cacao from Guatemala, hand selected and blessed by a shaman, and sweetened with honey and spices, you deepen into the experience through a guided visual meditation that supports inner connection, and allows you to fully relax and journey with the sacred music that follows. 

This gentle healing journey
*inspires creativity and innovation
*improves mental clarity and focus
*accesses inner guidance and wisdom
*aids in attaining inner balance and a sense of wholeness

Ceremony is 2 1/2 hours. Sharing with the group post ceremony, deepens inner connection, and creates a sense of relationship and community, so we include time for that deepening. 

How to prepare for ceremony: For optimal effect of the cacao, it's best to fast for 3 hours before and partake lightly of caffeine and dairy for the day. Hydrating with water, before, during and after ceremony, and drinking electrolytes, is advised as cacao is a mild diuretic and detoxifier. 

Medication contraindicators: Cacao is not recommended for people who are taking heart medicine or anti-depressants. If you are taking one of these medications, you are always welcome to join us in ceremony without cacao. It is a beautiful experience all on its own.

What we’ll be drinking: A warm cacao elixir of raw ceremonial cacao from Guatemala, blended with cardamom, ginger, a hint of chile pepper and raw honey.

What to bring: For your journey, bring a yoga mat and pillow to create a cacao cocoon as we often lie down on the floor for part of ceremony, a bottle of water, and a journal and pen. Bolsters and blankets are provided. If you’d like to bring a crystal or mala or other sacred object to have with you or place on the altar, please do. 

Intention for ceremony: You may wish to take a moment to reflect on your intention for ceremony: it could be a desire for clarity in your work, life or relationship; inner reconnection and healing; or deeper connection with Spirit or your ancestors. Opening to receive the gifts of IxCacao, the Goddess of Chocolate, is the key to a profoundly beautiful experience.

The Second Chakra - Relating to the Other

With Christa Reynolds

camilla-bundgaard-58040-unsplash.jpg

How do we begin to relate to others outside the family tribe? How do we build trust and discover our power of choice? We are creative beings and need freedom to create. The energy of the second Chakra teaches us how we relate, how we fulfill our desires and how we become enmeshed or disconnected from what we love.

Are you a caretaker, a teacher or someone that worries about others maybe too much? Are you creative or feeling blocked in your creativity? Join us and learn to open the Second Chakra in a way that creates sweet, loving relationships that have healthy boundaries.

Christa+Reynolds+Photo.jpg

Christa Reynolds has been studying the art of Transformation for over 20 years through yoga, meditation, mantra, intuitive work and Vedic Astrology. Her most recent love is Kundalini Yoga the “Yoga of Awareness”. It gives you “hands on” experience of your highest consciousness. The practice with its emphasis on Kriya sets (action movement) and mantra balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system and enables us to harness the energy of the mind and emotions, so we can be in control of ourselves, rather than being controlled by our thoughts and feelings. Out of this practice her love for Mantra has been flourishing and she just loves to share the wealth.

Bliss Into Meditation: Spinal Release Yoga Therapy Workshop

With Lauren Ziegler

Spinal Release Photo.jpg

Spinal Release Yoga Therapy goes beyond other restorative or meditative approaches. The simple, yet profound poses directly decompress the five segments of your vertebral column: tailbone, sacrum, psoas, rib cage and cervical. As you release spinal tension, you settle your mind, and problematic mental and emotional patterns mapped in the subtle body begin to resolve. 

Individual attention, meticulous alignment, hands-on adjustments, and supportive props ensure that the process is effective and personalized. The space is held in a nurturing, grounded way — with an emphasis on undoing, turning within and letting go. Instructions will be clear and only 4-5 poses are used throughout the workshop. This is deeply healing and will make your meditation practice much more blissful and enjoyable.

This workshop will be a deep and profound experience of calming the mind and body.

Decompress your spine and glide into meditation blissfully.

It's a surrendering kind of practice where you get into the posture, and then relax and let IT do YOU. We’ll finish with a long, illuminating lying down meditation.

Individual attention, meticulous alignment, hands-on adjustments, and supportive props ensure that the process is effective, personalized and comfortable.

Spring Stability - Restoring the base chakras and Kapha dosha

With Koren Kiener

nikola-jovanovic-631527-unsplash.jpg

As nature invites us to turn the page from winter to spring, we open the door to new shifts. The weather and earth’s surroundings transform around us and we too are sprung into new energetic changes. Since spring is associated with the Ayurvedic dosha of Kapha, there is a strong earth quality present. When in balance, Kapha can provide us strength and stability, but when imbalanced, our energy can be low and dull.

The first three chakras (root, sacral and solar plexus) govern our sense of security, well-being and empowerment. Some may reason that these lower chakras are the most influential to our internal balance as they set the foundation for the remaining 4 chakras. When marrying understanding of these chakras and the tone of the Kapha season, we can develop tools to help us remain balanced and positive on an overall level.

Join Koren Kiener for a grounding and strengthening practice. This 2 hour workshop will inform students of the fundamental qualities of the first 3 chakras as well as the main aspects of the Kapha season. With this overview, practitioners will be encouraged to apply skillful meditation and asana to compliment these attributes. Since these chakras are heavily themed around support and confidence, students will be cued to tap into these inner resources with guidance.

This is an all-levels offering that is well suited for students wanting to learn more about the chakras, doshas and seeking a grounding practice.

Koren+Bio.jpg

As a former dancer, Koren’s yoga journey began with introduction through her ballet training. After experiencing the benefits that yoga provided on an all-encompassing level, she became inspired to share the practice within a teaching environment. Koren holds a 200-hr Vinyasa RYT from Yoga to the People in addition to a 200-hr Embodied Mind RYT with Jill Satterfield. She has also acquired over 100+ hours of additional training through various workshops and mentorships, as she remains curious to expand her knowledge.

Koren specializes in a unique integration of Vinyasa yoga, Mindfulness, Meditation, and Embodiment practices. Her guidance extends beyond the physical, as she encourages students to dive within and explore their mental, emotional, and spiritual landscapes as well. Much of her teaching is based on a synthesis of both Yogic and Buddhist methodologies. She is driven to help students pause, honor the present moment, reconnect to their authentic truth, and create space for overall wellness. She believes that every student brings a special story to the mat, and sees the practices as a compass towards self-discovery, transformation, healing, compassion, and empowerment.

Spring Renewal Yin Yoga Workshop

With Diana Estey

flower yoga.jpg

As we move into Spring, the energy in nature is slowly beginning to stir, rising upwards and out of the cold moist earth. There is an energy of growth and renewal happening around us and also within us.

The Liver is the organ associated with Spring and the element of this season is Wood. After the inward stillness of Winter in the Water Element, the dynamic expansion of the Wood Element is now seen in the thousand of shoots, buds and leaves in plants that are exploding back into life. Now is the time of year when your own Wood Element also begins to expand. After the isolation of Winter you are starting to venture out more and experience the return of the sun. Spring is a great time to start new projects, spring clean your home and perhaps make changes to your diet to assist in the detoxification of your body.

Just as the energy of the new shoots push through the ground, so too does Liver Qi in your body. As the energy within you begins to rise, yin yoga can help support Liver Qi during this seasonal change and assist the body’s natural digestive and detoxification functions. This practice allows you to embrace the opportunity to shed old unwanted layers and start making conscious choices to begin again.

diana sm.jpg

Diana offers her students a physically challenging yet balanced yoga practice, that nurtures and supports increasing levels of growth and well being. Her style draws from her studies at Kripalu in Western Massachusetts and in Northern California where she studied under many master teachers in the Vinyasa Flow, Iyengar, and Yin Yoga traditions.

Release Fear, Relax into Trust: Kundalini Yoga & Sound Healing

With Adriana Cerundolo

KundaliniSound 2.jpg

When we are overwhelmed by fear, we lose touch with our bodies and ourselves. We enter an altered state of consciousness where our perception is clouded and truth is hard to find. In this 3-hr workshop, we will use Kundalini Yoga and Sound Healing to release fear, deepen into trust, and ground into the sanctuary of our bodies.

Security and grounding come from a strong first chakra - the energetic root that tethers us to reality and the Earth. When our root chakra is strong, our Soul Body (our primary body around which all others - mental, physical, energetic - organize around) feels at home and at ease. This means our true essence feels safe to exist. This is our foundation from which to engage with life and create in the world.

When fear overtakes us, our root chakra becomes weakened, which makes for a weakened Soul Body. This results in a common “flee” response where we feel detached from our essence and our body, manifesting as anxiety, fear, and depression.

The key to reversing the grip of fear is relaxing the physical body so the Soul can gently return. As the Soul lands back into the body, it remembers its true essence as divine. This remembering heals the wounds of separation and deepens trust in life.

~Join us on this journey back to the self ~

Please bring a yoga mat, water bottle, journal/pen

Kundalini Yoga is an ancient practice for building self-awareness through coordinated breath and movement patterns. The focus is on using the “kundalini,” or innate life force energy that flows up the spine, to rejuvenate the body, mind, and spirit. Expect a series of postures that will enliven, expand, and nourish you.

Sound Healing works on the premise that everything, physical and non-physical, vibrates as energy. Through the laws of resonance, vibration becomes a powerful tool for transforming our experience.

Adriana+sm.jpg

Adriana is a certified Sound Healer, KRI-certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher, and 7Directions dance ceremony facilitator. She believes that when we tend to our own inner world to align with our truth, we not only thrive, we also change the world around us. Her personal journey has taught her the transformative powers of sound, breath, and movement, and she loves weaving these tools together to support others’ personal empowerment.

Cacao Ceremony and Journey

A Restorative Evening with Cacao

sacred cacao.jpg

 With Nicole Gnutzman

A lusciously Restorative Cacao Medicine Journey featuring a gentle ceremonial cacao for a soft, sweet inner journey accompanied by a special sound bath healing playlist. This evening ceremony is 2 hours, a slightly shorter but still powerful version of our Saturday series.

Cacao medicine journeys are a deeply somatic, dreamlike experience that connect mind-body-spirit-soul, while facilitating an inner sense of renewed inspiration, clarity, and inner reconnection.

This practice honors shamanic tradition and wisdom by calling in the life force energies of the Directions and Elements, Spirit Animals, Star Beings and Ancestors. After you drink the cacao, which is pure, raw ceremonial cacao from Guatemala, hand selected and blessed by a shaman, and sweetened with honey and spices, you deepen into the experience through a guided visual meditation that supports inner connection, and allows you to fully relax and journey with the sacred music that follows. 

This gentle healing journey
*reconnects you to your inner world
*accesses inner guidance and heart wisdom
*restores inner balance and a sense of wholeness
*inspires creativity and innovation
*improves mental clarity and focus

How to prepare for ceremony: For optimal effect of the cacao, it's best to fast for 3 hours before and partake lightly of caffeine and dairy for the day. Hydrating with water, before, during and after ceremony, and drinking electrolytes, is advised as cacao is a mild diuretic and detoxifier. 

Medication contraindicators: Cacao is not recommended for people who are taking heart medicine or anti-depressants. If you are taking one of these medications, you are always welcome to join us in ceremony without cacao. It is a beautiful experience all on its own.

What we’ll be drinking: A warm cacao elixir of ceremonial Tantric Rose Blossom cacao blended with spices and raw honey.

What to bring: For your journey, bring a yoga mat, blanket (pillow optional) to create a cacao cocoon as we lie down on the floor for a good portion of ceremony, a bottle of water, and a journal and pen. If you’d like to bring a crystal or mala or other sacred object to have with you or place on the altar, please do. 

Intention for ceremony: You may wish to take a moment to reflect on your intention for ceremony: it could be for self care and nurturing; inner reconnection and healing; or deeper connection with Spirit, loved ones or ancestors. Opening, allowing and receiving the gifts of IxCacao, the Spirit of Cacao, will create a profoundly beautiful experience.

Connecting to Stillness and Inner Light: A Solstice Celebration and Yin Yoga Experience

With Diana Estey

jarl-schmidt-557318-unsplash.jpg

Dwelling inwardly for extended periods, we come to know something of the poverty of always looking outside ourselves for happiness, understanding, and wisdom.  It is not that God, the environment, and other people cannot help us to be happy or to find satisfaction. It's just that our happiness, satisfaction, and our understanding even of God will be no deeper than our capacity to know ourselves inwardly, to encounter the outer world from the deep comfort that comes from being at home in one's own skin, from an intimate familiarity with the ways of one's own mind and body."

- Jon Kabat Zinn

We will listen into our deepest selves in this quiet still-point of the year with curiosity and love and celebration as we practice yoga together. Please bring a yoga mat and join us to kindle inner light, radiance and peace for the winter season.

This gentle healing journey
*inspires creativity and innovation
*improves mental clarity and focus
*accesses inner guidance and wisdom
*aids in attaining inner balance and a sense of wholeness

Ceremony is 2 1/2 hours. Sharing with the group post ceremony, deepens inner connection, and creates a sense of relationship and community, so we include time for that deepening. 

How to prepare for ceremony: For optimal effect of the cacao, it's best to fast for 3 hours before and partake lightly of caffeine and dairy for the day. Hydrating with water, before, during and after ceremony, and drinking electrolytes, is advised as cacao is a mild diuretic and detoxifier. 

Medication contraindicators: Cacao is not recommended for people who are taking heart medicine or anti-depressants. If you are taking one of these medications, you are always welcome to join us in ceremony without cacao. It is a beautiful experience all on its own.

What we’ll be drinking: A warm cacao elixir of raw ceremonial cacao from Guatemala, blended with cardamom, ginger, a hint of chile pepper and raw honey.

The class will end with a chant to bring us safely back into the reality.

Womb Replenishment

Women's Workshop - Kundalini Yoga & Sound

with Adriana Cerundolo

0631_001 Etsy floral uterus jpg.jpg

As women, we reflect to the world what we cultivate internally. It is our basic nature to receive, conceive, and create. Our intuition and desires hold tremendous power as they are the seedlings for what the divine wishes to express through us.

To achieve our creative potential, we therefore need to replenish our sexual energy and claim our inner power. This starts with refilling our ojas - the juice that our brain runs on, which relies on healthy sexual fluid production - and balancing our auric field to be strong and clear. From this place of potency, we can use the power of our mind to access our intuition and bring any creation into fruition.

“Woman is the embodiment of the creativity of humankind.” - Guru Raj Kaur Khalsa

In this workshop we will use the technologies of kundalini yoga and sound healing to replenish our body with sexual energy, access our intuition, and strengthen our power of creation. This workshop is for any woman who wants to maximize her energetic and creative potency. Expect to leave physically revived and empowered to manifest your soul desires.

Beginners welcome!

Bring a water bottle, journal & pen, and yoga mat (optional; mats available in the studio).

Cacao Medicine Journeys

A Restorative Evening with Cacao

sacred cacao.jpg

 with Nicole Gnutzman

Our luscious new cacao offering: Restorative Cacao Ceremony featuring a gentle Guatemala ceremonial cacao from a local chocolatier, Firefly Chocolate, which provides a soft, sweet inner journey accompanied by a special sound bath healing playlist. This journey with cacao will restore you just in time for Friday and the weekend!

Cacao medicine journeys are a deeply somatic, dreamlike experience that connect mind-body-spirit-soul, while facilitating an inner sense of renewed inspiration, clarity, and inner reconnection.

This practice honors shamanic tradition and wisdom by calling in the life force energies of the Directions and Elements, Spirit Animals, Star Beings and Ancestors. After you drink the cacao, which is pure, raw ceremonial cacao from Guatemala, hand selected and blessed by a shaman, and sweetened with honey and spices, you deepen into the experience through a guided visual meditation that supports inner connection, and allows you to fully relax and journey with the sacred music that follows. 

This gentle healing journey
*reconnects you to your inner world
*accesses inner guidance and heart wisdom
*restores inner balance and a sense of wholeness
*inspires creativity and innovation
*improves mental clarity and focus

This evening ceremony is 1.75 hours, a slightly shorter but still powerful version of our Saturday series. 

How to prepare for ceremony: For optimal effect of the cacao, it's best to fast for 3 hours before and partake lightly of caffeine and dairy for the day. Hydrating with water, before, during and after ceremony, and drinking electrolytes, is advised as cacao is a mild diuretic and detoxifier. 

Medication contraindicators: Cacao is not recommended for people who are taking heart medicine or anti-depressants. If you are taking one of these medications, you are always welcome to join us in ceremony without cacao. It is a beautiful experience all on its own.

What we’ll be drinking: A warm cacao elixir of ceremonial Tantric Rose Blossom cacao blended with spices and raw honey.

What to bring: For your journey, bring a yoga mat, blanket (pillow optional) to create a cacao cocoon as we lie down on the floor for a good portion of ceremony, a bottle of water, and a journal and pen. If you’d like to bring a crystal or mala or other sacred object to have with you or place on the altar, please do. 

Intention for ceremony: You may wish to take a moment to reflect on your intention for ceremony: it could be for self care and nurturing; inner reconnection and healing; or deeper connection with Spirit, loved ones or ancestors. Opening, allowing and receiving the gifts of IxCacao, the Spirit of Cacao, will create a profoundly beautiful experience.

Autumn Yin Workshop // Transformation & Courage

With Diana Estey (Subbing for Monique Haan)

Autumn-Yoga.png

*Please note that Diana Estey will be graciously stepping in to lead this workshop while Monique recovers from an injury… Thank you for your understanding, and for Diana for stepping in!

The autumn season is about transformation - the drawing of energy inward and preparing for the stillness of winter. This season celebrates the coming and going of life, the end of cycles, and the rhythms of breath. In Chinese Medicine, the Lungs are the organs associated with autumn, as they are the life-giving networks of the whole body - nourishing every cell and replenishing our energy. When our Lung chi is weak, we can tend towards respiratory disorders and the emotion of grief. When it is in harmony, we are able to access courage and reverence. This deeply nourishing yin yoga practice will support bringing us into harmony with the seasonal shift -- letting go of what needs to be released and setting intention for what wants to be harvested.


Yin yoga is a deep, passive and meditative practice that supports the release of congestion in the fascia (connective tissue) of our body (ligaments, joints). Poses are held for several minutes to gently stretch and rehabilitate these tissues. In Yin yoga, we are also stimulating the meridian channels of the body, rivers of energy (chi) that live within our fascia. By nourishing these channels, this vital energy is able move through the body with more integrity. Strong flowing chi supports the physical organs of the body, as well as harmonizing our inner emotional and mind state. The yin practice supports us in feeling grounded, centered and at ease.

Cleansing our 5th Chakra(Throat) with Mantra, Meditation and Movement

With Christa Reynolds

eli-defaria-100532-unsplash.jpg

Have you clammed up and not said what was deeply in your heart or spoke endlessly with no point or direction in your speech? 

This happens when our 5th chakra at the throat and ears is blocked. Studies have shown that Mantra, chanting the same phrase over and over again, can really support removing any blocks in and around the ears and throat. Join Christa while she supports you in finding your voice and more importantly your JOY! 


Christa-web-150x150.png

Christa has been studying the art of Transformation for over 20 years through yoga, meditation, mantra, intuitive work and Vedic Astrology. Her most recent love is Kundalini Yoga the “Yoga of Awareness”.  It gives you “hands on” experience of your highest consciousness. The practice with its emphasis on Kriya sets (action movement) and mantra balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system and enables us to harness the energy of the mind and emotions, so we can be in control of ourselves, rather than being  controlled by our thoughts and feelings. Out of this practice her love for Mantra has been flourishing and she just loves to share the wealth.
