Yin + Pranayama + Meditation
Jan

6:30 PM18:30

Yin + Pranayama + Meditation

Take yourself on an inward journey to learn how to raise your own human spiritual frequency. Consciousness meditation teaches you how to access your higher levels of frequency and to observe and learn from your energy. This is important so that you can free yourself from the repetition of life lessons and attachments to mental emotional experiences. We will move through the chakra bodies, and learn how these wheels of energy, are guides through our human spiritual development.

In this session, Rachel will guide you through a yin yoga practice and pranayama exercises to open the door to these deeper places within, followed by  a silent meditation to go beyond the physical and access these higher levels of consciousness. This meditation will  teach you how to develop your psychic ability and to tap into your unique senses.

Ayurvedic Habits Workshop
Jan
27
2:00 PM14:00

Ayurvedic Habits Workshop

Most of us know what we need to do to feel better and live better: adopting a new habit or dropping a habit is a part of most people’s New year resolutions. But how do we actually follow through? How do we make habits stick? How we integrate habits, so that they become effortless part of our life, fitting in just right? 

If you’ve set up some habit-related goals for 2019, but know that by the end of January your willpower usually is at the lowest and you are about to give up, give your resolution a vitamin shot!

Join Valentina for this practical workshop and learn what makes habits stick. We’ll start by looking at Ayurvedic theory – habits and daily routines are the cornerstone of this ancient science – and then move on to practical applications, so come prepared to take notes and fill out worksheets! (and wear comfortable clothes!)

Habit by habit, build the life that you want!

Samsara Fest

21
to Mar 24

Samsara Fest

Join Angela and an array of other amazing teachers and presenters at Samsara Fest this March!

Samsara, a Sanskrit word, translates to the word journeying. Everything in this Universe is cyclical. It starts with a celebration, the birth of new beginnings and ends with a celebration, the experiences of our journey. And our commitment to life is to make the most of this journey of ours and grow through the experiences no matter how long or short. This is the Universal truth.

We learned this lesson recently when we came to part ways with our precious littlest daughter, Samsara who came into our lives only long enough to share a few chapters. But they were filled with so much hope, kindness, love, humility, joy, wholeness, excitement, gratitude, faith, laughter, strength, pain and a myriad of other strongest of human emotions. It was our hardest good-bye.

Our family was desperate to make sense of it and also find a way to continue to live this journey of ours. We found healing in our community that came through for us in so many small and big ways. Friends, family, church, place of work, acquaintances and complete strangers carried our family through while we struggled one day to another. Our hearts will forever be grateful.

We also sought healing in yoga, meditation, hiking, painting, dancing, music, gardening, cooking, photography and more. Each of these bridges and the sincere practice of teachers helped us reconnect our lives back.

From these experiences, a dream was born. We found ourselves a new purpose. To bring these various forms of collective healing arts under one roof. Our vision was set to bring together an ashram that would bring all of these everyday healing avenues to people to experience and nourish themselves from. Hence the birth of this experience studio Samsara's Studio that will strive towards getting the Ashram story together. Here we hope to give our community of people ways to engage themselves via workshops focussing on yoga, guided meditation, art, dance, music, photography, massage, reiki, marma, other healing arts and so much more. We also hope to grow through education this community of practitioners, more importantly helping make yoga, breath control and meditation as part of daily practice.

We are now committed to bringing together yoga, music, meditation and healing arts festival annually in the month of March (first weekend in Spring) in Enumclaw - Samsarafest . Our attempt is to bring this festival at no cost to families that are living out their lives after child-loss. Every ticket that we are able to sell to offset costs helps us invite a family in need to this event. Please reach out to us with your story and we will send you a full-festival family pass. Please email us at info@samsarafest.com. 

Lot of love and excitement is going into the planning of this event. We're talking yoga huts, meditation, sound bath, nature hikes, live-music, dancing, farm food, painting, photography, mindfulness talks, tiny home living, healing huts and more...

Ayurveda and the Chakra System

Ayurveda and the Chakra System

Ayurveda and the Chakra System will give you access to the perfect combination of ancient rituals and modern knowledge to fully understand the energies of the chakras, their relationship to the Ayurvedic doshas, and how all of that affects you and your well-being.

Many of us constantly struggle with weight, diet, lack of proper exercise, emotional highs and lows, burn out with work or family, and simply not enough time to take care of, or even pay attention to, ourselves.  Through yoga, proper diet and exercise, as well as working energetically using the chakras, we can balance ourselves, balance our doshas, and in that balance will come peace.

In this course you will learn in depth knowledge about the chakra system, the doshas, and how they are interwoven. You will also learn ways in which you can balance all of these energies so that you can make a massive shift in your own energy and cultivate lasting change in every aspect of your life.

Workshop will include:

  • 1.25 hour lecture and discussion

  • 1.25 hour yoga practice

Embodied Wisdom: An Evening of Yoga Nidra and Journaling

Join Meghan as she leads you through the powerful practices of Yoga Nidra, movement and journaling. Yoga Nidra is a deeply restorative and healing meditative practice that allows us to access our feelings, thoughts and emotions while in a state of open receptivity. Studies have shown that Yoga Nidra reduces the negative effects of stress: anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia, and low mood.
Journaling will be included as a means to explore our inner landscapes, giving us clarity about what we hope to achieve during our journey of Yoga Nidra.
Often, the best way of accessing our feelings, thoughts and emotions is through our bodies. We will begin the evening with gentle movement, before moving onto journaling. We will complete our time together with a 45-minute Yoga Nidra practice.
Bring your own journal and pen. Please feel free to bring comforting items such as pillows, blankets and eye pillows. All levels welcome, no experience necessary.

Limiting Beliefs

Spring is coming - a time for renew and fresh starts.

Most of us have created a list of amazing things to accomplish this year, desires and goals that will feed our soul. We create vision boards to help us manifest opportunities that we dream of. We buy new journals to help us write. We sign up to a new yoga studio or gym. We share our dreams with loved ones about traveling or meeting that special someone.

However, about this time something happens, somewhere we lose track, we lose our momentum and we want to reset and start again. Why?
Two words - LIMITING BELIEFS

Ayurvedic Reset

to Mar 11

Ayurvedic Reset

Did this winter leave you heavy and depleted? Would you like to meet spring with more energy, clarity and vitality? Would you like to take a week for yourself, as you lighten the load on your body, mind and nervous system? 

Then our Ayurvedic Reset led by Valentina is for you! You will take a week at the turn of the seasons to let go of the heaviness of winter and meet spring lighter and more energized. This reset is much more than a detox: yes, there will be a food protocol, but it will also include mindful eating practices, meditation, movement and daily rituals to support your wellbeing.

East Meets West: A Modern View on Ayurvedic Nutrition

With nutrition being a hot topic of discussion in our everyday life, how do we begin to sort out all of the information? Drop what you know, and work with what you have, yourself. Ayurveda looks at the individual as well as the rhythms of nature and focuses on inspiring a healthy, balanced metabolism. This workshop will introduce individuals to their Ayurvedic constitution as well as the constitutions within what they eat, teaching them how to mindfully eat to find balance and health. Bringing the knowledge of the Vedas into our daily routines as well as acknowledging modern day developments, this workshop will teach individuals how to identify and care for the natural rhythm of their digestion and metabolism; the key to overall health and wellbeing.
