Kundalini practice offers a unique set of exercises that generate and organize energy and deliver you into a greater state of awareness. These exercises, called Kriyas, include meditation, chanting, breathing, and specific yoga poses. The classes work on strengthening your nervous system, balancing your glandular system, purifying the body, and calming the mind. Also within the practice are built-in moments of stillness where we sit quietly and awaken to our Self.
Movement for the Soul is a holistic movement practice blending elements of healing arts, dance arts, and yoga. It is practiced barefoot, to diverse world & electronic music, combining repetitive moves engaging the base, the core, and the upper extremities. Consider it a more mindful, conscious, and fluid style of ZUMBA! It is accessible to any body types, honoring your body’s way. You are invited to adjust the suggested movements and tweak to your ability. This practice is open to everybody wishing to deepen a healthy connection with their body. It is easy enough to follow along and feels even better when you come regularly and get the moves more and more! Your heart will feel full, your mind clear, and your body will get a good healthy sweat and opening!
About Nicole Smith Levay
"I've moved for movement's sake, for therapeutic release, since I was a child. There are adorable home videos of me leading improvisational dance to my family at age 5. I was blessed to have a career as a performing artist, and during that time taught all levels, ages, and abilities around the world. From children to the elderly, from professional dancers to folks who are different abled. When I retired from performing and started focusing on teaching yoga in 2013, and I started to miss the vitality that I would get from a daily dance practice. This class combines years of study of all styles of dance, yoga, as well as exercise fitness pedagogy and of course... A LOT OF SOUL <3."

Join Anna, Nicole, & Breane for a magical heart opening experience with "Cacao, Kirtan, & CommUNITY". A sacred plant medicine, cacao is part of the chocolate family. It is rich in agents that enhance the production of various feel-good chemicals in the brain, notably serotonin and dopamine. This means that it possesses anti-depressant, mood-elevating properties. We will start in circle with intentions and education about the cacao with the option to partake in its mindful ritual. Then we'll lie down into a supine relaxation journey... shamanic soul igniting breathwork lead by Nicole. After we come back into our bodies fully, Breane will guide us through some movements to awaken our spine and spread the divine vibrations to every cell. We'll finish seated in a circle again, chanting mantra with open hearted devotion. As you can imagine, this experience is not to be missed!!!
Pre-registration is required so that the amount of cacao can be appropriately prepared. No experience with any of these components necessary, all levels welcome. Please bring any comfy things you like to sit or lay on (though we have some blankets and bolsters available). Please also bring a healthy snack or dish of some kind to share for afterwards. The final 30 minutes or so will be a grounding Sunday potluck dinner and informal community conversation.
