Liberate Your Voice: A Sacred Sound Meditation Ceremony
Discover the profound power of your own voice as a healing modality and surrender into a blissful state of peace in a reiki-infused crystal alchemy sound bath.
It’s very easy to find yourself running on autopilot in day-to-day life. Feeling stuck in an anxious and reactive state that keeps you playing small, disempowered in your sense of Self. When you lose that connection with the sacred spirit of Self, it can be difficult to speak your needs and wants to others, or even admit what you truly desire to yourself. 
By activating your own voice with intention in a ceremonial space, your spirit wakes up within the physical body, creating a portal for your unlimited human potential to shine through.
In this 90-minute ceremonial workshop, you’ll be guided through a journey of vocalization for opening up your energy channels to increase vitality and magnetism while deepening your understanding of your innate authentic power. 
This one-of-a kind ceremony will include:
  • An overview of the science behind vocalization and sacred sounds, and how these frequencies affect your brain and nervous system
  • Light breathwork into an intention-setting meditation
  • Vocal toning to clear the energy centers and activate the energetic channels in the body
  • A guided melody meditation designed to raise the frequency of your intentions and amplify your personal power
  • A reiki-infused crystal alchemy sound bath to relax, rejuvenate, and anchor your newly energetic state in the body as you go back out in the world
The resonance of your own voice is the most powerful healing sound in the universe. Come experience the wonder and expansiveness on a sonic journey that guides you home to the sanctuary within.

Queer & Trans Affirming Yoga (free community class)
Limited Capacity seats available

This class is for all those who identify outside the lines - trans, queer, gender non-conforming and questioning folks.

Be who you want, be who you are. Show up as your full self and take up space. This is for you if you’ve never seen a yoga teacher look like you. If you experience dysphoria, dysmorphia or any sense of self-doubt. We will move our bodies and our spirits together as an act of resistance from these cistems that try to diminish us. Be with other like minded folks and counteract the struggles of gender dysphoria and possibly even access gender euphoria.

When engaging in the yoga practices we’re given a window into our soul. Allow yourself to open up to who you truly are and feel increased self-trust and self-love along the way.

Thus is for people who bind, who are recovering from top surgery and who are fat.

This class will be slower paced and gentler in nature. Very beginner friendly. Class will entail some mantras, light movement, meditation and deep relaxation all while building a sense of community. 

Bring props if you have them and like them, otherwise we’ll use our surroundings to prop us up.

All folks across the LGBTQIA+ spectrum are welcome and allies as well, but no misgendering will be tolerated.

A true detox calls us to unpack and unlearn all that we’ve accumulated along the way: limiting beliefs, habitual patterns, negative thoughts – so that we can break down the barriers and breakthrough to freedom. In this dynamic movement practice, we will let go of what is holding us back from our wholeness and explore what it is to live into our potential both on and off the mat.

Free your Psoas! Release stress and low back pain
Limited Capacity filling up

Feeling a little more stressed than usual? Experiencing low back pain? These two conditions often go together. The psoas is the “muscle of the soul” and grips the spine during times of stress, causing a deep ache or pain that runs along the sides of the lumbar vertebra. To release that pain, you must first regulate your nervous system out of stress mode. Then you can release your psoas muscle, but not with lunges. Lunges might even be making it worse. Join Cat as she expertly guides you through practices to calm your nervous system then to release muscle tension. Once the brain has settled, and only then, can you release the psoas and the muscles of the low back.

Liberate Your Voice: A Sacred Sound Meditation Ceremony
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Discover the profound power of your own voice as a healing modality and surrender into a blissful state of peace in a reiki-infused crystal alchemy sound bath.
It’s very easy to find yourself running on autopilot in day-to-day life. Feeling stuck in an anxious and reactive state that keeps you playing small, disempowered in your sense of Self. When you lose that connection with the sacred spirit of Self, it can be difficult to speak your needs and wants to others, or even admit what you truly desire to yourself. 
By activating your own voice with intention in a ceremonial space, your spirit wakes up within the physical body, creating a portal for your unlimited human potential to shine through.
In this 90-minute ceremonial workshop, you’ll be guided through a journey of vocalization for opening up your energy channels to increase vitality and magnetism while deepening your understanding of your innate authentic power. 
This one-of-a kind ceremony will include:
  • An overview of the science behind vocalization and sacred sounds, and how these frequencies affect your brain and nervous system
  • Light breathwork into an intention-setting meditation
  • Vocal toning to clear the energy centers and activate the energetic channels in the body
  • A guided melody meditation designed to raise the frequency of your intentions and amplify your personal power
  • A reiki-infused crystal alchemy sound bath to relax, rejuvenate, and anchor your newly energetic state in the body as you go back out in the world
The resonance of your own voice is the most powerful healing sound in the universe. Come experience the wonder and expansiveness on a sonic journey that guides you home to the sanctuary within.

Y12SR-Yoga of 12-Step Recovery
Limited Capacity seats available

In this class we will use the methods from Y12SR ( Yoga and the 12 Steps of Recovery) to connect the cognitive and spiritual principles of recovery with those of yoga in an embodied way to build sustainable holistic recovery.  We will integrate the mind, the body, and the spirit in a way to aid and support relapse prevention. This class is based on combining Yoga with the 12-step recovery model, created in 1939.

The 12-step program is the most well-known and pervasive addiction/ recovery program in the world with millions of practitioners internationally. In a word, the characteristics and effects of addiction could be easily described as “separation.” Addictive behaviors separate and disconnect us from ourselves, our loved ones, our environment and so much more. Conversely, yoga itself means union, integration, balance. Yoga and its practices teach the fine art of balancing our multidimensional lives while living in a complex world. The 12-Step program approaches addiction at a cognitive level, yoga includes a somatic approach. The combining of the two creates a model that truly addresses addiction as the physical, mental and spiritual dis-ease that it is.

Y12SR recognizes that “the issues live in the tissues” and as such, supplements yoga and its practices as an integral part of a holistic recovery program. Not intended as a replacement, Y12SR provides practitioners with adjunct tools to address the physical, mental and spiritual disease of addiction. We will weave themes of addiction into simple ( but not always easy) Yoga asana in order to feel the effects of long-held habits and learn how to release them if they are not serving us any longer. This class will include specific mudras, mantras, and pranayama.  Then we will end with a super sweet Yoga Nidra. This class is open to anyone- we are all affected by addiction in some way!

Peace...breathe...be… Festival energy can be exhilarating, but can also leave us feeling ungrounded. We will begin the evening with a meditative sunset hike, treading silently through the woods and towards a beautiful mountain bald. So often we look outward for the answers and forget that sometimes all it takes is the sound of silence. As the sun sets in the night sky, a gentle lunar energy, combined with poetry and guided meditation, will help us to practice the intention of letting go what no longer serves us. We’ll sip in the moments and, finally, will hike down with new friends under the light of the moon.

Spice it Up
Limited Capacity seats available

In this spicy, sweet, playful flow class we will create TAPAS - heat that causes change, the burning of impurities. We practice specific asana and pranayama to rid our bodies of toxins and rid our heart and mind of the obstacles that we don’t need - the obstacles that keep us from being the best version of our Selves. We clean the slate and emerge as clear as the blue sky! TAPAS answers the common question : if we are already Divine, then why do we need to rid ourselves of anything? TAPAS also means “the friction that is created by going against the grain of habit, working against complacency, striving to not always take the easy way out.” So TAPAS can be one thing to you, and another thing to someone else. This class will incorporate traditional Sun Salutations along with other non- traditional moves to keep creating heat. Then we will spice it up with some playful and funky asana. We will stoke the fire by digging in deep with breath work, and end with a short and soothing meditation. Come find out what lights your fire!

I AM Yoga Nidra (Asheville Yoga Center)
Limited Capacity seats available

Yoga Nidra is a sleep-based, guided meditation technique typically taken lying down, which utilizes various practices of body, breath, mind, energy & spirit to draw individuals into deeper and subtler states of being. In these deeper states, individuals are able to access the space between sleeping and waking where profound healing becomes available. Yoga Nidra meditation is a beneficial practice for everyone, gently guiding individuals back into the knowing of their own wholeness and divinity. Not only does this practice offer individuals profound relaxing and restorative benefits, but Yoga Nidra is also a powerful practice for bringing balance to the body & being, supporting the innately healing mechanisms of the body, embedding intentions into one’s being, and shifting one’s relationship with stress producing thoughts & tendencies.
Amanda utilizes the I AM Yoga Nidra Technique developed by the Amrit Institute, and she studied this method under Kamini Desai, Amrit Desai’s Daughter. This approach to Yoga Nidra is a powerful approach that takes one’s entire being into account as it leads individuals into profoundly deep states of being.
