🌞✈️💗Vision Board Workshop 🎨🥰🌳

Envision Your Perfect Life

with Alyssa Martin

Vision Board Workshop

How can we manifest the things we want in our life? If time & money were removed from the equation, what would you be doing? Putting your dreams on a vision board is a powerful way to manifest your dreams & desires. Even the big dreams …the ones that scare you, they’re so awesome …stage performances, starting new businesses, vacationing in faraway lands!

Jack Canfield says, “Because your mind responds strongly to visual stimulation-by representing your goals with pictures and images-you will actually strengthen and stimulate your emotions …and your emotions are the vibrational energy that activates the Law of Attraction.”

All supplies for the vision board will be provided.

🪞🪄Mirror Magic Virtual Workshop 🪄🪞

Find the Magic within Yourself

with Alyssa Martin

Virtual – TBD $35

Mirror Magic Workshop

Mirror work has long been Louise Hay’s signature method for cultivating a deeper relationship with yourself and others. Louise tells us, “A mirror reflects back to you the feelings you have about yourself.”

For most, looking into the mirror and facing ourselves is difficult at first. But as you continue, mirror “work” turns into mirror “play” and becomes one of your most effective ways to increase your self-worth, practice self-love, and transform challenges.

In this class, we will explore using your mirror: self-talk, forgiveness, letting go of fear, and releasing negative thought patterns.

Prerequisite: This virtual workshop is open to anyone who has previously taken the first course (Love Yourself and Transform Your Life) in any format or is very familiar with Louise Hay’s book, You Can Heal Your Life.

Stress Relief for Busy People 

Self Care for people who don’t have time

with Kathleen Megahan
Cost: $30
Stress Relief for Busy People

We have all learned to live in chaos and become comfortable with feeling exhausted and overworked. While you like the idea of taking time for yourself, there aren’t enough hours in the day. Whatever your excuse, you’re never too busy for self-care!

Starting something new or adding something to your schedule may feel overwhelming, but self-care does not need to be time-consuming. Learning to squeeze self-care into your life may lead to less stress, more patience, and a clearer focus. Proper downtime can help alleviate stress and anxiety. In this workshop, Kathleen Megahan will show you ways to practice self-care when you can barely spare a minute. In this workshop, you will learn strategies that take minimal time and can make a big difference in your mood and well-being, sleep hygiene, desk destress, mindfulness, and yoga movements to do in minimal space. If you start small, it’s possible, and the rewards for your life and modeling for the next generation are limitless.

Seasonal Self Care

Grounding Transitions

with Juli Eckmeier
In Studio & Virtual I TBD
Cost: $40

 

Seasonal Self Care: Fall

Not only do temperatures drop, but plant life slows down, and so do we. The body doesn’t always deal with change smoothly, so help maintain your health and well-being by preparing it for the change in season. 

This workshop uniquely blends therapeutic practices for the body and mind. We will practice self-care as we transition from the summer to the fall season, using Ayurveda to base our movements and actions around the seasonal changes, as well as techniques used to calm muscles through self-massage and myofascial release, ending with a musical meditation to allow the whole body to melt away anything that needs to be released. No experience is required.

Juli Eckmeier

Juli strongly believes that yoga benefits every age, body, and mind and loves the chance to spread her enthusiasm on the subject! She is an artist, musician, nature enthusiast, and “mother of chaos,” having four children and many animals at home! You will find Juli teaching Gentle and Chair Yoga. Look out for her pop-up classes and workshops.

Greatness through Regulation Workshop

Deepen Body Awareness, Relaxation, Flexibility, Strength, and Resilience

with Mike Thomas
In Studio | New Dates Coming Soon

 

Anxiety, depression, hyperactivity, loss of focus, low motivation or energy, poor digestion, tight and/or painful muscles, emotional ups and downs, defensive/aggressive behavior in relationships, and even autoimmune conditions…what do all these have in common? A dysregulated nervous system. This leaves the mind and body in a survival state that leaves the body open to all these experiences. How can you change this?

Join Mike Thomas, who has over 20 years of experience working with groups and individuals to optimize their wellness and quality of relationships through mindful movement and habit optimization, in his new workshop: Greatness through Regulation.

This workshop runs for 6 weeks, each session 2 hours long. You will learn alignment principles; nervous system regulation techniques to deepen awareness; how to reduce stress; how to utilize the breath, and improve your overall quality of life.

This will be accomplished through a medley of mindful movements such as Tension/Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE®️), Tai Chi, breathwork, Yoga, and various fitness exercises.  This allows the body to deepen awareness, relaxation, flexibility, strength, and resilience—supporting the capacity to learn, grow, develop competence and mastery, and direct your bodily state with more choice and intentionality.

After this 6 week workshop, you will be able to incorporate many of the practices you learned into your everyday.

For information, contact Mike Thomas at holisticfitnesslifestyle@gmail.com. Or visit his website.

🔴🟣🔵Journey into the Chakras🟢🟡🟠

Promote Healing & Well-Being

with Susan Cohen
In Studio I  New Dates TBD
Cost: $40
Journey into the Chakras Workshop

Join Susan Cohen for this informative introductory journey into the seven chakras. In this journey, you will understand the balance created in the body through chakra alignment, which will put you on the path toward healing.

The seven chakras are considered the main energy points in your body, which run down the spine. Chakra (cakra in Sanskrit) means “wheel” and refers to energy points in your body. They are thought to be spinning disks of energy that should stay “open” and aligned as they correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic body that affect our emotional and physical well-being. Each of these seven chakras has a corresponding number, name, color, specific area of the spine from the sacrum to the crown of the head, and health focus.

Susan will explain the colors and theories behind each chakra; use meditation; and music with fun, fluid, and easy dance and movements to stimulate each chakra and to gain balance within your body by unblocking these energy points, which will prompt healing and overall well-being in your body.

Bring your favorite colored stone or scarf and a notebook and pen to take notes and encourage yourself to bring this practice into your daily life. You will receive a Chakras Chart to use at home.

Susan Cohen is a Certified Natural Foods Chef/Instructor, Certified Yoga Instructor, Wellness Coach, and bodyworker. She has studied and taught throughout the US for over 15 years. Her style of yoga focuses on flexibility and strength, with relaxation and breath to complete a session. At Airmid, Susan offers a variety of workshops.
