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 stillpoint of the year with curiosity and love and celebration as we practice yoga together.

Diana Estey offers her students a physically challenging yet balanced 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.  Diana completed her 300 hour Professional Teacher Training Program and was a faculty member with Down Under School of Yoga in Boston.

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.

Register before January 2nd and the workshop is only $55!

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.

Learn to Activate Your Own Inner Medicine and Masterfully Surf Your Inner Terrain with Urban Shaman & Mind-Body Coach, Gina Vance

buffalo-rider-2566156_1920.jpg

Explore what your own Inner Wisdom has to teach you about
Self Love, Partnership & Purpose.

You’ll be guided into indigenous-style soul journeys to connect to your own Most Complete Wisdom. 

You’ll experience how easy it can be to connect to resources, clear inner clutter, and unify your strengths through your natural ability to journey within.

Leave this adventure knowing how to:
Feel good in your body
Feel calm in your mind
Feel at ease in the world

We won't be using externally ingested plant medicines, but will be gently yet powerfully activating your internal medicine - in whatever form it represents itself to you - animal, mineral, vegetal, or otherwise.

You are encouraged to bring a notebook to jot down your inner-journey experiences. All levels of experience welcome! Bring a lunch to eat in the park across the street or enjoy one of the many nearby restaurants during our lunch break.

Because your inner genius is easier to access than is generally believed.


This is exclusively for men, to access inner resources in support of Self Love, Partnership & Purpose in these times of radical change, backlash against men as part of the “patriarchy”, and unsureness of how best to respond to the demands of life, relationships, and this new world.

Because being a man in this wildly challenging world requires deep support, and we're not gonna change this world without them, this day of learning to experience the incredible power and beauty in the soul of a man is a gift that will bless all in his sphere of influence.

Forward this page to a man you know and love!

Cacao Ceremony and Journey

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

Seasonal Detox with Kundalini Yoga & Sound

with Adriana Cerundolo

Adriana Fall workshop.jpg

Rejuvenate yourself with kundalini yoga and sound vibration.

Most of us are not exercising enough to promote good digestive elimination. The chronic "fight, flight or freeze" response that is prevalent in today's world of overstimulation further impedes bodily function. The result is build-up of waste in the digestive tract that prevents absorption of nutrients, causes bacteria build-up, and creates illness.

The same can be said for our subconscious mind. A build-up of negative thought patterns, unconscious habits and external projections crowd our clarity of perception and buffer us from our truest selves.

This 3-hr workshop leverages kundalini yoga and sound vibration to detoxify and replenish the mind, body and spirit. The seasonal cycles remind us to break our patterns to recalibrate with natural rhythms. We will use the powers of breath, sound, and movement to tune ourselves to health in time for the fall season.

In this workshop we will:
Exercise entire digestive system
Promote elimination
Activate creative energy
Awaken self-knowing
Gain clarity of perception and lightness of being
Create calming, grounding presence

A combination of enlivening asana, breathwork, meditation, and deep relaxation with crystal singing bowls will leave you cleansed, refreshed, and empowered.

All levels, including Kundalini newbies, welcome! Come as you are in comfortable clothes.

Kundalini Yoga, as brought to the west by Yogi Bhajan in 1969, is a technology for activating awareness in the body for maximum vitality and sensory perception. It leverages ancient yogic practices that align breath with movement and sound frequency to awaken kundalini life force and distribute it throughout the body.

SoundWork is the art of creating sounds from a ceremonial container to intentionally channel divine love for the highest good.  Voice, crystal singing bowls, and percussion instruments are used to create a blissful landscape of interconnected sounds to heal, soothe, and invigorate the body into wholeness.

Cacao Ceremony & Journey

A journey to inner reconnection, healing and wholeness

sacred cacao.jpg

 with Nicole Gnutzman

Cacao ceremony is a deeply somatic, dreamlike experience that connects mind-body-spirit, while facilitating an inner sense of renewed inspiration, clarity, and reconnection to your true self.

Cacao has an ancient history of opening people to the wisdom of the heart. The ancient Mayan word, Chokolaj, which means “drinking chocolate together,” reflects how integral cacao was to the lives of the Maya. They believed the cacao tree is sacred and honored cacao for its ability to connect and heal their inner selves, community and spirit through ceremony. 

Nicole's sacred cacao ceremony honors Mayan tradition and wisdom by calling in the life force energies of the Four Directions and Four 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.

They believed the cacao tree is sacred and honored cacao for its ability to connect and heal their inner selves, community and spirit through ceremony. 

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.

Cacao Ceremony & Journey

A journey to inner reconnection, healing and wholeness

sacred cacao.jpg

 with Nicole Gnutzman

Cacao ceremony is a deeply somatic, dreamlike experience that connects mind-body-spirit, while facilitating an inner sense of renewed inspiration, clarity, and reconnection to your true self.

Cacao has an ancient history of opening people to the wisdom of the heart. The ancient Mayan word, Chokolaj, which means “drinking chocolate together,” reflects how integral cacao was to the lives of the Maya. They believed the cacao tree is sacred and honored cacao for its ability to connect and heal their inner selves, community and spirit through ceremony. 

Nicole's sacred cacao ceremony honors Mayan tradition and wisdom by calling in the life force energies of the Four Directions and Four 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.
