Chakras And The Subtle Body
with Carla Olla

Saturday, January 27th  12:30-3:30 p.m.

According to energy expert Anodea Judith, the chakras are “literally the way your soul creates what happens in your life.”  Join us for an afternoon of deep exploration of our inner landscape, where the physical, emotional and psychological meet. The ancient chakra system of India is like a spiritual map that leads you to a better understanding of yourself and others.  Connection to the subtle body is not limited just to chakras, though!  You’ll leave with a greater grasp of the concepts of prana (vital energy), nadis (energy pathways), koshas (sheaths or layers of being) and more.  Discussion with some asana, pranayama and meditation.

Carla Olla is the Founder of Love Yoga Center.  She is a Jivamukti certified yoga teacher and she has been practicing yoga since 2000 and teaching since 2005. She began teaching yoga in Naples Florida in 2010 and opened Love Yoga Center in July of the same year. Her classes are upbeat, devotional, and fun and she encourages her students to reach for their greatest potential while honoring and being compassionate toward themselves. Workshop=$35

Meditation, Mantras, and Malas with Tricia Zoldak
Saturday,  February 3rd  6:00-8:00 p.m.

A Mala is a garland of 108 beads plus one bead as the Guru bead.  Malas are traditionally used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra. Wearing a Mala can serve as a daily reminder of what you are trying to manifest in your life at that particular time.

Join Tricia Zoldak for a fun workshop where you’ll learn how to make and use your very own mala to serve as a talisman for prayer and meditation, and to wear as a reminder of an intention you will set during the workshop. You will learn a little bit of the history of Malas, the importance of meditation and mantras, and you will have a chance to find the perfect mantra for yourself. You will leave with a beautiful Mala you have created yourself set with your own personal intention, along with knowledge of how to use it.

Tricia began the regular practice of yoga in 2014 and received her 200 hour yoga teacher certification in May of 2015 from the Body Art Barn in Blooming Grove, NY. She then went on to receive her 500 hour certification in 2016 from the Body Art Barn and is currently enrolled in another 500 hour certification at Happy Buddha in Goshen. Yoga, meditation, and chanting has become an integral part of life for Tricia and has helped in dealing with the common yet difficult stresses and obstacles of life. Her goal is to bring yoga and meditation in an easy and accessible way so that even a complete beginner can utilize these practices in their life. Workshop = $70
