WOOM CENTER

WITH ALI CRAMER 

Immerse yourself in #surroundsound #surroundspace #surroundvisuals

The Woom Center's space is so unique, and we are so excited to share and explore the experience of live music and movement here......

Yoga teacher Ali Cramer will take us on a journey of yoga asana, with freedom of expression using movement and breath, while musicians Essie Jain and Patrick Glynn create a live musical accompaniment using voice, harmonium, guitar and pedals. 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.

RELAX AND RESTORE - A LIVE MUSIC IMMERSION

As part of our winter wellness series, we are thrilled to welcome musicians Essie Jain and her husband Patrick Glynn back to Mandala Yoga. Joining them is energy healer and massage therapist Lauralee Kelly, to bring you an afternoon of complete relaxation. Using gentle instruments and soothing voice, essential oils and healing touch, we will relax on the mat and move through a journey together of guided healing and live music, as we immerse ourselves in the season of rest and self care. 
Combining these healing elements creates a safe and peaceful environment that allows us to go deeper inward, where we can access greater layers of our awareness, letting go of things we no longer need, and absorbing new things that we do need to go forward, bringing ourselves back into balance. 

Come wrap yourself in blankets and love and join us on a magical winter wonderland journey back to yourself.

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.*

A Vibrational Healing Immersion

WITH SHERYL HASTALIS AND LAURALEE KELLY

Join us as we create a loving and safe space together to unwind, allowing us to settle into the deepest levels of relaxation in the body, mind and spirit. Using yoga asana, live music, voice, breath and physical touch, we will move gently into the letting go.

Yoga teacher Sheryl Hastalis will lead the first half of the evening in a yoga asana sequence which will warm the body, incorporating freedom of movement and expression, helping us to open the channels to release any old energy we no longer need to carry forward with us.
Then we will unfurl our bodies onto the mat to begin the second half of the evening, as we relax into a restorative 40 minute live musical soundscape by musicians Essie Jain and Patrick Glynn, where we will be supported by blankets and props for relaxation and move into the subtle body where further release can take place. During this time, cranio-sacral and body therapist Lauralee Kelly, will bring her healing touch and lightwork to everyone at rest. At the close, we will unfurl the body carefully back to a sitting position, and close together with a sharing circle.

Please wear comfortable clothing for the yoga asanas. Mats and all props will be provided on the day, and feel free to bring your own yoga mat if you have one.
