Yogalates: 4:30pm Saturday

Two worlds collide in one class. Yogalates is a great combination of yoga and pilates to achieve a tremendous amount of core strengthening. Students will experience yoga’s incredible ability to warm up the body and enhance flexibility, which ultimately supports the mental and physical alignment required in all of the mat pilates exercises. These two disciplines go hand in hand as the benefits of each art feed into the other. The importance of yoga alignment combined with pilates’ core strengthening exercises makes for a challenging yet worthwhile experience. This class is appropriate for intermediate level students.

Intuitive Flow 1:30pm Saturday

Intuitive Fusion Flow is a cohesive blend of Asana, Pranayama and mindfulness practices, intentionally sequenced together as a Vinyasa. The level of the physical poses offered in this class will vary, depending on the audience and the day but will ultimately include a healthy level of challenge, intuition, and ease. The key to achieving the perfect variations is by acknowledging and honoring how one’s personal energy and physical edges present themselves each day.

Pranayama Techniques: 9:30am Saturday & 10:30am Sunday

The quality of the life depends on the quality of the breath. In this class, we will practice the art of breath and improve our lungs capacity while walking through different Pranayama Techniques applied in sitting, kneeling, supine and facedown Yoga Postures and finish with the breath awarenes. As the lung capacity and control ower the breath improves, we will advance into special bandha and mudra techniques.

Some effects are: increased oxygen intake, lowered blood pressure, and improved digestion system. When both physical and mental tensions are removed, the individual becomes serene and dynamic. The energy within the body becomes active.

Shamanic Breathwork 10:30am Saturday & Sunday; Astrology Basics and Beyond 6:00pm Saturday & 3:00pm Sunday

Shamanic Breathwork

The breath, aided by chakra-attuned music provides a route to the discovery of your inner landscape, healing, and trauma release. Levi will guide you into relaxation and the practice of a simple breathing technique. From there, simply trust that whatever emerges is what’s meant to be present.

Some people laugh. Some people cry. Some people enter a state of deep and profound meditation. Each time you show up for it, breathwork takes you wherever you need to go. A process that ultimately moves you away from the agendas of your ego and towards the sacred purpose of your soul.

Astrology Basics and Beyond

Want to learn about astrology? Now’s your chance! This workshop is ideal for anyone with an interest in astrology, from total beginners to hobbyists.

In it, Levi draws upon the vast wisdom available to us through astrology and lays out the fundamental components in a clear, simple, practical way: you’ll leave with a new understanding of how your entire birth chart, not simply your sun sign, influences your worldview, potential, and challenges.

Human Design workshop 4:30pm Saturday

The Introduction to Human Design Workshop is an interactive experience whereby participants can learn about the Human Design System in a fun and relatable way. Human Design System is a beautiful fusion of astrology, the I Ching, theqaballah, and the chakra system, which together create a deeply specific and objective visual map of the individual. This allows us to go deep into the experience of living out our true, unadulteratedselves, and gives us the keys needed to recognize the ways in which our conditioning can derail us from our uniquely beautiful authenticity.

We are a growing community that is here to Love, Serve & Support ourselves first, so that we may be living examples for each and every child we meet. We are inspired to bring children & the “grown-ups” in their lives wisdom-rich, immersive experiences that encourage social/emotional intelligence, creative thinking, and intuitive awareness. We know self-love is equally as important as community love and we also have some wild ideas about the ripple effect. Our core principles and workshops are all rooted in learnings we have been honored to receive through Indigenous traditions. We all come from very different bloodlines, yet have found ourselves all adopted into the Chata Muskogee Yamassee Nation. A Nation that is holding the space to gather tribal nations globally for the betterment of all life.
