Yoga & Wellness Newsletter September

Below are a few wellness events hosted by my favorite yogis and studios.  But first, I’d like to share a fun new activity in the Bay Area: Wonder Women of SF walking tours by ispytours.com.

Meet Lady artists, pioneers, revolutionaries, and generally impressive dames who have influenced San Francisco. One in a series of walking tours to honor the many women who have contributed to our city’s legacy. Each tour is unique, visiting a different neighborhood and sharing the stories of a new set of women.

I attended a Wonder Women of UC Berkeley walking tour and enjoyed fascinating stories of Phoebe Hearst, Ida Jackson, Julia Morgan, Maxine Hong Kingstonand other inspiring women who made their marks on the campus, California, and the nation. The tour stopped by the beautiful Hearst Gym where I’ll be teaching yoga again this semester. Learn about more walking tours in SF and yoga workshops below.

Full Moon Circle
Friday, August 16, 2019
6:30pm to 8:30pm
Crab Cove Beach in Alameda

Join Anne Gregory & Nicolette Tura of The Luminous Awakening for this special gathering under the open sky. August’s post Eclipse season is extremely powerful for illuminating our relationships and restoring balance and harmony! The healing nature of community will amplify this magic.

Let’s come together to celebrate the Sturgeon Full Moon, named for the when this large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water like Lake Champlain are most readily caught. A few Native American tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon — because when the moon rises it looks reddish through sultry haze. The abundant energy of this phase makes it a great time for both releasing and manifesting.

We will open with a grounding meditation followed by a talk about the significance of the full moon. She will be in Aquarius in the 7th house which rules relationships, balance & harmony AND the opposing Sun is exactly conjoined with Venus who rules the 7th house with Mars not too far from his lover. Fireworks in the sky!

Flow through moon salutations, forgive, release and make space for what you would like to see emerge in your life. From there, you will be guided through Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep, a transformative practice designed to heal and restore you on all levels. We will conclude chanting together as the sun sets and the moon rises.

Location: Meet at Crab Cove Visitor Center, 1231 McKay Ave, Alameda. Practice will be on lawn or beach depending on tide.

Yoga & Wellness Newsletter July 2019

Below are a few yoga and wellness events in the Bay Area, plus opportunities to learn about the chakras. If you’re interested in the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage, check out the events listed at thecaminoprovides.com.

Wheels of Life Chakra Workshop with Anodea Judith
A Free Video Event
Wednesday,
 July 17,
5:30 pm Pacific

Learn about the Chakras with #1 Bestselling Author & Expert on the Chakra System Dr. Anodea Judith, PhD

Discover how to open, align, and heal your chakras to activate your energy system, nurture your spiritual awakening, and enjoy a vibrant, thriving, and full-spectrum life.

We’re all fueled by life-force energy. Yogis call it prana… Asian healers call it chi or qi…

We’re often more in tune with this vital charge that flows through us when we’re excited or scared — or we notice its absence when we’re depressed or exhausted.

Did you know that you have the power within you to control the flow of your energy — dialing it up or down at will?

If you long to have instant access to your life force so you can live the full spectrum of your life — from feeling more alive and comfortable in your body to more ecstatically connected to the Divine — the good news is there’s a “user’s manual” for your energy system which can help you work with it at the deepest level… through your chakras.
