Gateway to Madhya
A Yoga Practice Dedicated to Finding Space
In this mixed level practice, students will explore madhya, which is the space or pause between. Madhya is the moment between inhalation and exhalation, the time for transition between poses, the internal presence of akash, which is ether. The class will include mythical insight, full spectrum asana, pranayama, mantra and meditation. Students should arrive prepared for deep internal reflection and contemplation as well as a heightened physical expression.
Metaphysically Fit Vinyasa Flow

Lila- A Divine Play Practice
The world lila means play, and is most often associated with the play of the Divine, who creates freely, merely for the joy of it, out of spontaneous creativity. The notion of lila is also used to explain human suffering. Mysterious and tragic events are viewed as part of the mysterious play of the Universe. As adults, we often lose sight of our own playfulness, and the essence of ourselves that is deeply embedded in our hearts. There is deep healing and joy to be found when we allow the playful, childlike part of ourselves to shine forth in our lives, on and off of our yoga mat.
Join Sarah as she takes you through an asana practice inspired by Lila. Expect to be both challenged and delighted as you weave through sequences designed to bring out your own spontaneous and creative nature.

The Power of Language: Calling in True Divine Love
Harness the magical Power of Language to call in your most Divine Love relationship! The relationship with yourself! What’s stopping us from attracting the love we so desire from others in our lives is the patterning of our ‘ego-mind’ that leads us into believe that what we want isn’t here, already inside of us. Fortunately, we can use language, a skill that is innate to us, as a tool to help reverse this ‘ego-talk’ and to align us to our ‘loving-mind’ attracting all sorts of loving relationships to make our hearts soar, including the most important relationship — our relationship to SELF!
This 60-minute workshop will provide guided meditations to connect to YOUR source of love. You will write a letter of divine affection to yourself that will attune you to the highest vibrations to attract your divine mate. Tips and strategies will be shared on how to embody elevated internal dialogue to attract and nourish your deepest love relationships.
Awaken and claim the love that is all around you harmoniously reflecting your true divine nature!

Pranayama Talk and Practice
Pranayama are breathing exercises which clear the physical and emotional obstacles in our body to free
the breath and so the flow of Prana – life energy. Through a regular and sustained practice of pranayamayou can supercharge your whole body! Daily stressors, tensions and physical habits can create physical and energetic obstacles in our bodies. Without even noticing it our breathing can become gradually more shallow or stilted, we develop unconscious breathing patterns restricting the flow of breath and Prana. When we work on the freeing the breath through pranayama (breathing exercises) we are also working on letting the life energy flow through the body. It has the effect of energizing, relaxing and healing the body, letting everything fall into place.
Come and learn how to increase and balance life energy in your system.
