What we're about

La Maida Institute is pioneering a new, integrative way of approaching health; leading a cultural shift from isolation and disconnection, to one which promotes wholeness and conscious connection as the foundation for the health of the individual, family, and community.

Part community gathering space, part yoga and meditation studio, and part integrative clinic, La Maida’s model is rooted in the integration of ancient modalities and modern science; where the human experience, communal support, and spiritual development are central to the healing process.

Howl At The Moon - Yoga & Soundbath with Cameron Cash & Anthony Ocasio

From: 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm The full moon is a time when the intrinsically feminine energy of the moon is ripe with aggressive masculine energy - a 2 spirit form. It is on this night that we can set intentions for balance between these forces and a washing away of all that does not serve us through moon bathing. The February full moon is known as the Snow Moon, a time for personal visioning - in the full moon traditions, intentions for the new year are not set until one can meditate on their strengths in the light of the January Wolf Moon. From this place of knowing and confidence we can more deeply journey into visions of the coming year. Think of it as a 2nd chance at New Year's Eve. The event will begin with an intention setting ritual and moon salutation yoga with Cameron Cash, and a savsana with sound bath by Anthony Ocasio. Cost: $45/ $35 Early Bird Pricing until February 12. Members receive 15% off either pricing. Discounts taken at checkout. *Space is limited, preregistration encouraged. Please arrive early, no admittance after 8:10pm 11159 La Maida St. North Hollywood, 91601 Cancellations up to 48 hours for account credit.

Hello. Disaster. with Dawn Camancho

La Maida Institute

We tend to be really good at beginnings. Engagements, new relationships, weddings, baby blessings... we love those—the emotions, the excitement, the coming together. But endings? The moments when you feel the ground has fallen out from beneath you? When you feel alone in navigating the turmoil and chaos? We are pretty terrible at them. For most of us, no one taught us how to be present with the end of anything, so is it any surprise that we feel awkward and lost at those times? A relationship at an impasse, a job that is driving you crazy, a child transitioning from infancy to toddlerhood or childhood to teen... not to mention what tends to be the biggest ‘ending’-- death. Most of may not even be super intentional in endings with our "stuff" - even though we're conditioned to dispose of everything from coffee cups to cell phones without too much thought to their next steps. Our inability to navigate endings means we spend so much of our good times time fearful of when the other shoe will drop, or squeamish with anguish or confusion when an ending is actually present. We do whatever we can to escape endings - medicating ourselves, distraction, diving into the contentiousness we expect, or jumping right into a new thing as soon as we can. Dawn shares how to be present with all stages of transition, chaos, and change, as well as tools and strategies for developing resilience and compassion for yourself and others. Develop an understanding of when stillness and limbo may be essential to discernment, when it is okay and wise to take action, and how to manage chaos and uncertainty effectively. Dawn draws on years of research in effective decision-making and navigating major change skillfully in her work as a non-traditional career coach and speaker, as well as her decade of experience as a interfaith minister working with individuals and couples at every stage. With a balance of lessons from spiritual teachings and neuroscience - Dawn helps you create a roadmap through endings so you can find peace, regain the ground beneath your feet, and embrace your new normal. Cost: $85/ $75 Early Bird Pricing until February 16. Members receive 15% off all pricing. Discounts taken at checkout. Dawn Camacho is the founder of two small businesses, Seventh Sense Weddings & Events and Whole Life Solutions. She is a trilingual interfaith minister and premarital counselor who has officiated over 500 ceremonies. She also uses her research on decision-making and how humans navigate major change to offer coaching for professionals at a turning point, and talks on living fiercely with greater purpose, efficiency, and clarity. She has spoken at conferences, panels, churches, and events on both coasts, with clients including VISTAGE, Oracle, Wedding International Professionals Association (WIPA), the Los Angeles Police Department, WeddingWire, UCLA, USC, Intrepid Health, the City of Los Angeles, and UNICEF. She wakes up every day grateful to do what she loves. 11159 La Maida St. North Hollywood 91601 CLICK FOR TICKETS: https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/ASP/adm/main_enroll.asp?studioid=-190764&tg=24&vt=14&lvl=&stype=-8&view=day&trn=100000173&page=&catid=&prodid=&date=02%2f23%2f19&classid=0&prodGroupId=&sSU=&optForwardingLink=&qParam=&tabID=8
