ANCHORED a brief beginner’s meditation
Our Signature Anchored Meditation Class is the perfect way to first experience our studios vision to create a safe space for people to see the profound impact a meditation practice can have on your life. Whether you are new to meditation or have an existing practice, this class is the perfect afternoon dose of discussion and stillness. We will provide you with some of the benefits of why we meditate and provide you with some of the science behind the practice. Through breath and/or body awareness you will easily connect with the present moment and become more aware of your thoughts, feelings, and sensations. The meditation itself will be only 20 minutes long so it is a great opportunity to squeeze in a meditation during your lunch break!
Breath is the life force of our energy. In this class we will focus on Pranayama (Breathing Techniques) to stimulate our nervous system with that life force and establish balance within the body, mind, and spirit with the added benefits of aromatherapy through diffusing, breathing in, and placing Essential Oils on certain parts of the body. Through this practice you will leave feeling centered, restored, and aligned with the very thing that gives you life -- your breath.
BREATH + ENERGY MEDITATION
Combine inner energy movement, breath, relaxation
and sound to assist the energy system within the body to open, balance and align. Increase vitality by learning how to work with energy in your body and bring your physical health and mental attitude to a more peaceful state. This practice can help you heal by loosening constrictions within the body and mind that have developed over a lifetime.
Breathwork is an active, guided meditation that clears the body of stuck energy and releases suppressed emotions. This breathwork technique is a cathartic, somatic experience that allows us to tap into a deeper level of the subconscious to reveal inner truths and shine light on that which has been hidden or buried deep within us. Conscious breathing is a doorway to our intuition. Breathwork healing naturally activates respiration, energizes, cleanses and reconnects the body to a state of maximum balance on a mental, emotional and spiritual level. The flood of oxygen increases self clarity by calming the central nervous system.
Breathwork is done lying down flat with a luxurious throwbed, eye pillow and blanket to aid in complete relaxation from the days stress and worries. Gentle and encouraging guidance from the teacher, along with an array of aromatherapy and grounding tools may be used throughout the meditation. A contemporary soundtrack will accompany the practice resulting in clarity, improved sleeping patterns and an overall lift in mood or spirit. After a session, participants report feeling lighter, less burdened, more open, and with a new sense of clarity about how to move forward in their lives.

The session will begin with handling and understanding the crystals and their meanings, followed by a seated meditation with a stone of your choosing. Every day your body is shifting energetically and sometimes certain crystals will resonate with you more than others. Each session is an opportunity to explore, align, and refine the subtle body and heal stuck energies. In each class, we will practice a variety of mindfulness practices from mantra (chanting) to pranayama (breath work) and visualization techniques.

MINDFUL SELF COMPASSION MEDITATION
Come learn to offer yourself a daily dose of Kindness.
Most of us easily offer our loved ones compassion when they experience hard times. Yet, when we personally experience challenges, we tend to be self critical & less understanding.
When you combine Mindfulness (the act of noticing what is happening in the present moment) with Self-Compassion (the practice of being kind & understanding with yourself) you can learn to soothe your body, mind & spirit.
Mindful Self-Compassion helps you connect deeply with yourself, experience ease-fulness, & create a deep feeling of personal freedom. It is a powerful way to support yourself in knowing that it is safe to be you, all of you, in all of your different parts & messiness.
All of your being is welcome here.
During this class you will be guided inward through a 30 minute Self-Compassion meditation. This will be followed by a 15 minute wisdom discussion focused on offering you practical ways to bring self-compassion into your daily life.
PAIN RELEASE MEDITATION
This class experience is created with the intention to address pain through the inner pathway. To release the pain, we will first open the idea of connecting within yourself, so that we can see the pain for what it truly is, a separate entity and identity that is a part of our body, and not who we are.
It is an experiential meditation to go inwards and that will allow the pain to release and be pain-free. This can be applied to physical or emotional pain.
Positions for meditations will be open to sitting on the floor or chair, or lying down to allow for maximal comfort. You will also leave with tools to continue on your journey until the next class.
Class format: Guided and Unguided meditation with possible Q&A at the end dependent on the present moment.
SOUND PATHS: GATEWAYS TO MEDITATION THROUGH MUSIC AND HERBALISM
Deeply relax and explore meditation through the guiding nature of music and plants. This is a unique sound meditation experience where we use gently applied sound pulses, plant generated music, virtual and crystal instruments, aromatherapy, and projections of the visual nature of sound to help you reach deeper brainwave states.
Take advantage of the many relaxing qualities curiously embedded within plants and ambient music that help melt away accumulated stress and encourage healthier sleep patterns. Focusing on your breathing, the music in the air, and the space in between the notes will deepen your meditation practice and teach your brain how to clear overgrown neural pathways, leading you towards a healthier mind, body, and spirit.
WELL BEING MEDITATION
Each week we will focus on topics related to your personal well being. Examples include abundance, acceptance, authenticity, grounding, letting go, relaxation, confidence, resilience, happiness wisdom and flow. Come as you are, leave feeling better.

SOUND + REIKI

A safe and nurturing environment is established for individuals to tune into their inner wisdom to access higher levels of consciousness and realign with their true hearts desires.
