What’s New at JSC?

Notice in the schedule that we are opening up some of the classes to men! While I have had men in our classes before, it has been some time, and typically it has been just one guy at class. I want the guys to feel welcome, so I am opening up some classes to include men, so they can have other guys present on the mat. Jeff will be joining some of these classes as well, so now is the time to get your man on the mat. See the schedule above!!

New Workshops and Classes

July 23 – Monday Night JSC Baby Goat Yoga!

6:00 PM

August 25 – Free Yoga in the Park with JSC – Summer of Love!

8:30 AM

Location to be determined! Last year, we were at my growing up stomping grounds of Holmes Park, and I really like the location. The weather was dreary and cold, and we still had over thirty people attend, so I am hoping for a gorgeous day to bring out 100 people! So let’s start spreading the word that we are doing this! Share the event on Facebook! Imagine if we could get that many people together for an awesome yoga practice of opening our hearts to LOVE!!

August 27 – Circle with Nea Claire

6:30PM

Nea is a fabulous channel who I met in the spring, and she offers attendees the opportunity to ask questions from the Masters who she works with. When I first met Nea, she channeled Quan Yin, the Buddhist Goddess of Compassion. The energy changes in the room when Nea “steps out” of her body and, in this case, Quan Yin, “stepped in.” It was truly a humbling experience to be around such a wise Soul who truly is full of compassion. Nea never really knows who will show up, as several Masters work through her. But she often will start to receive messages or themes the day of an event.

More information will be forthcoming, but I want you to get this event on your calendar!  http://www.neaclare.com/

 

Previous Workshops and Classes 

Psoas Release Class

Saturday, August 19 8:00AM -9:30AM

The matrix grid is programming the ego with manipulating thought forms/emotional outbursts/destructive behavior into the primal reptilian brain stem, vagus nerve and amygdale. The majority of your thoughts are not your own consciousness. The matrix simulation was designed to keep you in lower-frequencies of despair, victimization, addiction and hopelessness. Your natural life force has been siphoned, your Light has been drained and your energy field has become fragmented from astral attacks and inserted with portals/doorways leading to the parasites. All of this changed in the year 2012! On 12/21/12 the dark forces lost control of the matrix program. With higher awareness and divine presence, all can be cleared away. This psoas release class will be the physiological catalyst to work through and clear your energy field.

Summer Solstice and Chakra Alignment Workshop

Saturday, June 24; 8:00am  – 12:00pm

Join Jill and Aggie for this wonderful morning of exploring the chakras through yoga and discussion, and then we’ll create our own Mala necklace or bracelet!

The timeline for the Chakra updates have spedup significantly as we, mankind, determined we wished to accelerate this process for our Highest good and our Spiritual ascension. So the timeline for full implementation has changed from completion in 2025 to completion in 2018! Many of us have already completed this process, and we will discuss the symptoms for each stage so you can check in with your own ascension progress! It’s all good/God!

Malas are Buddhist prayer beads, used similarly to Catholic rosaries. Malas are a traditional tool used to count the number of times a mantra is recited, breaths while meditating, or the repetitions of a Holy Master’s name. Conventional Buddhist tradition counts the Mala beads at 108, signifying the mortal desires of mankind. The number is attributed to the Mokugenji Sutra wherein Shakyamuni Buddha instructed King Virudhaka to make such beads and recite the Three Jewels of Buddhism. In later years, various Buddhist sects would either retain the number of beads, or divide them into consecutive twos, fours, for brevity or informality. A decorative tassel is sometimes attached to the beads, flanked by talismans or amulets depending on one’s local tradition. Because prayer beads are often painted in pigment, various traditional schools attribute a consecration ritual by the Sangha to the beads, to “open the eyes” for the purpose of achieving Enlightenment unique to the Karma of each believer.

Schedule for the morning:

8:00       Chakra Alignment Yoga Class

9:15        Chakra Updates!

10:30     Mala Workshop with Aggie

 

Tuesday, June 21 – Summer Solstice Yoga Class!
6:00-7:15pm;
$15 drop in or use as a make up class!

Join us for our regular Summer of Peace class, and at the end of the class, we will repeat our peace mantra 108 times!! The mantra for this class is Aham Prema – This mantra reveals your true nature as pure love. Prema means “love,” the flowing energy that connects us all. This mantra helps us express love in every word and action. When we see the world and others with the eyes of love, our hearts are filled with gratitude and grace.

 

Saturday, June 25
Post Summer Solstice Celebration – ArtAsana!!
8:00am – approximately 11:00am

Jerilyn and I are still fine-tuning the details, but this fun morning event includes yoga, painting, and brunch! We’ll begin with a yoga practice from 8:00-9:00am, and then Jeri is leading us in a painting activity (think Wine and Painting but with a YOU-nique medium!) for the rest of the morning. Just bring your mat and water. If the weather is beautiful, we will be outdoors! This class is limited to 15 people, so please pre-pay to ensure your place. (Price will be provided in the next newsletter.)

Thursday, July 14 Live Didgeridoo Music and Yoga!
6:00-7:15pm;
$15 drop in or use as a make up class!!
All payments and donations go to Melanie.

This was such a great event last time, so we are inviting Melanie back for another session of didgeridoo music and yoga! The Aboriginal didgeridoo is known as the world’s oldest instrument. The vibrations from this instrument are known to heal in two ways. The vibration works like nature’s ultrasound and can speed up the healing process of broken bones. Each instrument has its own key which correlates with the chakras in the body. The process of entrainment will be explored and this occurs when the vibrations from each individual instrument actually change the vibrational frequency in the chakras.

Saturday, August 13 Psoas Release Workshop
8:00-10:00am;
$25 RSVP

In this workshop, Jill will guide you in a psoas release gentle yoga class. Why release the psoas muscles? The psoas muscles are the deepest layer of muscles in our hip flexors. If they were to be held in the hand, they would literally fall apart, they are that fragile. Yet they play a very important role in the body of mammals. They store our stress and trauma. We are all familiar with stress. But many of us do not understand the trauma our bodies hold. From our very birth, we experienced trauma. After babies are born, a healthy baby will cry and shake it’s little fists and legs. That is the baby’s natural instinct to release the trauma from birth. If a baby is born lethargic, it doesn’t release its trauma, and that can be stored in the physical and emotional body for years, even for a lifetime!

The same can be said for traumas experienced throughout our day. Accidents like car, bike, even bumping your nose hard, can produce trauma. While some people might not store the accident in the body, others can experience this trauma very severely, creating post traumatic stress, PTS or sometimes referred to as PTSD (disorder). That is small scale trauma. But there are other forms of trauma. Our soldiers returning home from war often exhibit signs of trauma, with loud noises or sudden movements triggering  there trauma.

The key to releasing trauma from the psoas muscles involves a vigorous shaking of the hips, which is hard to produce in day to day actions. In this workshop, Jill will lead you through a series of gentle yoga poses and breathing techniques to help you release your own trauma. You will also be given access to a JSC video to help you work on the psoas release on your own.

This class will be limited to 10 people to accommodate our indoor yoga studio, but if the weather cooperates, we will take the practice to the outdoor yoga studio, where we can accommodate more people. This decision will be made a couple days ahead of the session.

Please message me to sign up. Prepayment is encouraged to hold your space on the mat.
