Yoga allows you to rediscover a sense of wholeness in your life, where you do not feel like you are constantly trying to fit the broken pieces together. Yoga allows you to find an inner peace that is not ruffled and riled by the endless stresses and struggles of life. Yoga allows you to find a new kind of freedom that you may not have known even existed. - BKS lyengar

Integrative Breathwork workshop- A Spiritual Journey to the Inner Landscape - Sunday December 11, 9:00 - 3:00pm with Faith Burrington Jones! Come join us at for a deep inner experience using integrative breathwork, evocative music, expressive artwork, and group sharing.

Integrative Breathwork uses the power of circular rhythmic breathing along with evocative music that mimics the ancient spiritual practice of ceremonial fire dancing while lying on a comfortable mat in a journeying position. By using circular breathing and evocative music as a conduit altering normal states of consciousness, the ego recedes, and participants are able to access their inner landscape where resources are experienced for transformational healing and spiritual guidance. 

This workshop facilitates deep healing and conscious awakening; it is a healing into wholeness!
