The Watering Hole
A member of our community asked me yesterday what Seva meant. Seva is a sanskrit term for selfless service, a tidy explanation for sometimes untidy work. The best example I came up with was a shelter. Those who run shelters do the work most of us turn away from: caring for those that are sick, recovering, unwanted and lost. Those beings, two and four legged, who are UNSEEN. Shelter workers lean in when most people lean back. They tirelessly

starting 9/26 Elisabeth’s basics class will be on Tuesday’s at 615 pm…
starting 9/27 Jessie will be doing a double shot with Yoga Tune Up at 4pm and Roll and Recover at 6 pm…
what is Yoga Tune Up®?
Yoga Tune Up® is perfect for those who question, “Am I doing this right?” and those looking to refine their poses. Each class deconstructs a familiar yoga pose and explores movements to make the pose, as a whole, stronger and more secure. You will regress your poses to make progress in your physical practice. It’s intended to round out and inform your regular yoga practice for more longevity on the mat.
Yoga Tune Up® weaves together corrective exercises, natural movements, yoga, and self-care to help people live better in their bodies. It’s an archeological dig into yourself to navigate each fascinating region of your body as a pioneer of your own anatomy. You will learn to excavate unhealthy tension patterns, access body blind spots (underused, overused, misused, and confused areas), and discover a “new normal” of structural integrity. With regular practice, you can erase pain, improve posture, and enhance performanc

- Embody Love Workshop with Aeriel Arthur and Angela Goulart
- Saturday October 141230-330$25The Embody Love Workshop will take you on a transformational journey into self acceptance. Women will be given the opportunity to see themselves and their peers through new lenses, ones that do not condition love based on external appearance or limit worthiness to a particular waist size… Lets create a conversation that moves away from “i’m so fat”, “i’m too thin”, “i don’t look good enough” to “I have Purpose”and I am worthy of love and respect”, and ” I have so much to offer”… This workshop is not just about body image and eating issues, but also about acknowledging our worth in our work, family life, relationships with others and changing the conversations we have our selves to be a much more positive one 🙂
This is an interactive workshop that does include a 50 minute yoga practice.. In addition to that we have discussion around Media Literacy, a Body Image Project, Change Your Talk, Make a Commitment, and a Journey to Self Inquirycost is $25 and a portion of your payment will be donated back to the Embody Love MovementSession is limited to 30 womenthis session is for women ages 20+ …Here is feedback from a past attendee… 🙂
Embody Love Movement. What an amazing, live changing experience. I attended a workshop when the mindset of learning about other people; I never thought I would have learned so much about myself. This workshop changed my perspective and my inner thoughts. I learned, listened, cried and experienced so much love and support from all the other ladies’ participating. It was remarkable to learn about how others speak to themselves- the constant judgment, specifically- and to eventually realize the thoughts I was having on a daily basis. I discovered so much about my relationships with others and why I react the way I do to certain circumstances. The subconscious thoughts I had been suppressing for years- finally came up to the surface—what a relief. This workshop gave me a new outlook on where I am in life- and why it’s perfect for me, right now. I encourage every person to attend this workshop; to learn, to experience and to grow and become comfortable (maybe even) confident with yourself.Lyndsy Tainsh

- Starting in January 2018 – Wild Wisdom 200 TT with Jessie Dwiggins
Wild Wisdom Yoga is strength based vinyasa yoga; a warmed, powerful class rooted in anatomy, mindfulness, and reconnecting to the body’s instinctive wisdom.
Breath, movement, and real food have the power to energize and restore. Once instinctive choices, they are becoming unconventional practices and those who choose them may be considered a bit wild. Wild Wisdom Yoga combines intelligently sequenced vinyasa yoga and mindful-eating practices to strengthen and nourish the body. The intent is to create a highly functioning body to help students reconnect to their instinctive wisdom and live a vibrant life.
Join Jessie Dwiggins, E-RYT with guest teachers: Sharon McGuire, Debbie Valois, Lori Mancini, Dave Ursillo, and Aeriel Arthur for this Wild Wisdom Vinyasa Teacher Training. They will help you explore and push your physical, mental, and emotional boundaries. They will motivate you and talk you through your head games. They will create a space for you to look inward and love yourself.
Designed for inquisitive yoga students, aspiring teachers, and yoga teachers seeking to enhance and refine their abilities, this yoga teacher training will help you elevate your practice and hone your craft.
You will learn to blend the right amount of technical knowledge, joy, power, and spirituality into your practice and teaching. You will leave with the ability to safely and soulfully guide others through their practice.
Discover your unique yoga gifts and how to share them with the world. Imagine the potential students waiting for your unique style of teaching. Don’t deprive them of you!

♥ Stop comparing themselves to a false idea of beauty and to others

♥ Participation in an Embody Love Workshop led by Debbie Valois
♥ The being and doing of facilitation: holding safe space
♥ Projection, transference, and shadow work in groups
♥ Using yoga as a tool to find and keep body acceptance
♥ Finding your voice and sharing your truth: story telling that heals
♥ The detriments of body shaming and comparison
♥ Teaching media literacy and demystifying standard of beauty

Embody LOVE Yoga Workshop
Transform Your Relationship To Your Body From The Inside-Out
Does it ever feel like “body acceptance” is a good idea in theory, but actually impossible? Do you constantly compare yourself to others and feel like you never measure up? Do you ever let the way you feel about your shape or size hold you back from getting what you really want in life? Do you tell yourself that when you’re thinner/leaner/tighter, THEN you’ll be able to get that job/role/date/raise?
Life is too short to play the when/then game with your self-confidence. “Someday” is no way to live (plus, it never comes).
Join Dr. Melody Moore, social entrepreneur, psychologist and yoga teacher, for a powerful weekend to transform your relationship with your body from the inside-out.
Embody Love Yoga uses the best of Western Psychology and Eastern Philosophy, in an environment that fosters vulnerability, soul seeking, and heart opening, to reveal to you what’s on the other side of your body insecurities and negativity. Come learn and implement powerful tools to re-image your body so you can use your limited energy to fully inhabit joy and find purpose and meaning in life. No one was put on earth to be thinner, or to look prettier. We all have necessary contributions to make. Through yoga practice, processing, journaling, and meditation, Melody provides a new lens through which to connect with, radically accept, and transform your relationship to your body.
