Jala to offer workshops
Jala Yoga, the yoga studio at Mellow Moods Cafe and Juice Bar, 117 W. German St. Shepherdstown, is pleased to sponsor two seasonal yoga workshops led by returning guest teacher Katie Day, a Kundalini Yoga practitioner and professional astrologer. Both workshops are open to all by donation.
The first workshop, “Winter Solstice: The Darkening of the Light – Shadow Work, Yoga, and Deep Meditation,” takes place Thursday, Dec. 22, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Day will lead participants in harnessing the energy of the Solstice in order to create a sacred winter for rebirth and growth.
The second workshop, “New Year’s Intention Setting in the Aquarian Age,” takes place on Friday, Dec. 30, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Through the use of astrology, yoga, breathing practices, prayer and meditation, Day will lead participants in ringing in the New Year. Students are encouraged to come to learn ways with which to navigate the year ahead with ease and grace.
Day integrates yogic and astrological wisdom with Depth Psychology and Toltec Shamanistic practices to create an alignment based psycho-emotional practice. She believes strongly in the power of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan to release, strengthen and activate the genetic code and the energy centers of the body, mind and spirit. Her background in five Rhythms dance, Ashtanga yoga and Body-Centered Psychology has brought her again and again to the grace of the Kundalini yoga and meditation practice. She is a practicing professional Astrologer, Somatic Bodyworker and Nutritional Detox and Cleanse counselor. She is currently embarking on graduate studies in Body-Centered Psychology through the lens of nutrition and yoga.
Jala Yoga offers classes seven days a week in the vinyasa style of yoga in which poses flow from one to another. More information can be found at jalayogaflow.com or by calling Christa Mastrangelo Joyce at 304-263-5367.
