MUSICAL AWAKENING

anandaashram

WITH JESSICA STICKLER

Using movement, breath, and conscious rest, all immersed in the harmonies of organic instruments and soothing voice, we can create a peaceful, safe and sacred space that allows us to go deeper inward. As we tune in further to this resonance, we can begin to access greater layers of our awareness and lovingly find our innate wisdom to heal and transform ourselves. This music experience will include some gentle yoga movement, restorative yoga, and meditation to facilitate self healing, connection, and inner transformation.

Live Music by Essie Jain. Joined by Patrick Glynn on Guitar and Pedals. 

Price: $20 Drop in

BHAVA FRIDAY - HOLIDAY EVENT

WITH TARA GLAZIER

Join us for a Special Bhava class led by Tara Glazier and a few additional Abhaya Yoga Teachers accompanied with live music by Essie Jain. Come experience the magic as we bring it all together at our Holiday gathering. Followed by a Community Potluck!

Bhāva is the sanskrit word for feeling, emotion, mood or a devotional state of mind. It literally means, “to be”, or “becoming”. The word connotes both a “being-ness” and the state that we are “becoming”.

In Bhāva Friday, we are encouraged to let go, and let in the power of grace, the power of the music, and power of the collective community. The Bhāva class is a unique experiential approach to awakening through asana, music, and the healing subtle body adjustments/ reiki. Bhāva offers a full, flowing, yet sweet asana practice that is inspired by the many live master musicians. In this co-operative effort between the teachers, the musicians, and the students, something greater is created.

MOVEMENT MEDITATION MUSIC

MalibuMusicMeditation

Join Fern Olivia, Thyroid Yoga® founder, Reiki healer and Intuitive, in collaboration with Musicians Essie Jain and Patrick Glynn, for a transformative workshop that will reveal, release and rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit. 

Through breath, movement, energy healing and aromatherapy, all immersed in the sweet harmony of live music, we will create a space where you can move, relax, reset, and recenter yourself gently and lovingly. Long holds in poses, deep stretches, and the support of yoga props, will help to facilitate an unwinding of the body and surrender into bliss.

Using Voice, Harmonium, Guitar and Pedals, Essie and Patrick will create a landscape of organic instruments to resonate with each movement and asana, as Fern guides you on an insightful and gentle journey through movement and meditation. We will then transition into a deep unfolding of the body for a relaxing series of restorative poses, where Fern will anoint each of us with her lovingly handcrafted organic essential oils to balance and ground us. 

As you sink deeper into the practice, immersed in the comfort of Essie Jain's beautiful voice, you will open into an experience of deep relaxation, receiving Reiki energy healing and light touch to profoundly support your healing. Reiki Therapy enables you to access your innate healing energies so that you are able to avoid distress or disease and achieve states of deep relaxation and healing by yourself. Similar to restorative yoga, Reiki Therapy works on all levels of physical, emotional and spiritual elements, to help reduce stress, anxiety and other ailments

When Restorative yoga, Essential Oils, Reiki and the vibrations of music are incorporated into a single practice, your whole body is brought into a deep relaxed state, allowing your mind to become quiet and reflective, bringing your mind, body, and soul into blissful balance. 

In this Transformative Workshop You Will:
Access your intuitive healing power through a guided meditation
Learn how to activate the Rest and Rejuvenate Response through deeply supported healing Yoga postures
Receive Reiki energy healing, light touch and aromatherapy to profoundly support your healing
Immerse in sacred music to resonate to the tissues, organs and bones of your body with healing vibrations
Re-train the energy flow in your body to ultimately help you to reclaim your wholeness and feel balanced and blissful!

Come with a willingness to let go of what is no longer serving you whether it be mental, emotional, or physical. All levels of physical ability are welcome.

*Essential oils will be available for purchase for those who wish to take their experience home and create a daily healing ritual.

Moving and breathing in rhythm with organic instruments opens a space in our bodies, minds and spirits, and allows us to explore a deeper place within, immersing ourselves in natural harmonies. After we have moved through our bodies and unfolded onto the mat, a long and dreamy savasana awaits, where Essie will sing and whisper everyone into a complete rest.

MUSIC MOVEMENT COMMUNITY

So glad to be a musical part of this. 

WITH SARA BEX
"One of the best things I've seen to come out of the devastation we're all feeling in light of the election results is the strength and love of our communities. We're all in such deep pain, genuinely shocked as we experience a grieving process we hadn't anticipated, and more or less at a loss when it comes to planning our next steps; be that as it may, we are showing such profound love for each other in this place of unknowns. We're holding each other close. We're crying together. We're doing our best to be strong for those who need us.

It's truly a remarkable thing to experience, and it's inspired me to hold a space for all of us in this community of movers. Anyone who lives a movement-oriented lifestyle knows that movement heals—especially in conjunction with music—and when it's a shared experience with a large group, it's nothing short of energetic magic that takes place.
This paired with the fact that this community is home to so many of this election result's most targeted groups (the LGBTQ+ community, racial/ethnic minorities, immigrants, women, etc.) was enough for me to understand that we all really, really need each other right now" - Sara Bex

So let's come together. Here's the plan:

WHAT:
1) We'll begin with an open discussion about how we're feeling, exchanging stories if inspired, putting out ideas about what we can do specific to our professions/roles as we move forward, talking about our responsibilities as artists/movers/educators/etc. when it comes to being of service to our communities;

2) then we'll move into a meditative introduction to finding those voices through movement;

3) then we'll get to it with a super beautiful, feel-good improv jam (i.e., move however you want for two hours, with some guidance if desired; but seriously, you can approach this through dance improvisation and groove in your own weird way, or go through a yoga flow, etc... it's completely up to you). For the movement portion, we will be graced by the soothing musical magic of Essie Jain and her husband/fellow magical musician, Patrick.

WHEN: Friday, November 18th from 8-10pm (If you have to come late/leave early, no worries. Please still come.)

WHERE: Arts On Site — 12 St Marks Place, #3F, NY, NY

WHO: Open to anyone and everyone. Dancers, non-dancers, yogis, etc.; you can come to participate or just come to observe and you will still be such a huge contributor to the conversation and the energy we cultivate towards healing and igniting a means to move forward.

COST: Suggested donation of $10 (cash) *all proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood and GLSEN* *Feel free to give what you can/as you please and know that you will not be turned away if you can't donate.*
