Kirtan & Curry, WHO AM I?, Blacklight Aerial, Partner Breathwork, and MORE!   ???? Dark Shati with Ashton Flint!???? This Month, we are highlighting Ashton Flint and her Dark Shakti classes! Stay tuned throughout the month to learn more about Ashton and her passion. When asked, “What does “dark shakti” mean to you and how has that inspired you to create a class for it?” Ashton replied, “Shakti is our devine feminine. (For everyone) She’s your chaos, your sensual side, your spontaneity. But she’s also your power, your ability to create, your nurturing and protecting side. Embodying your dark Shakti to me is leaning into that sensual, creative, chaotic energy, but also healing and feeling into exactly what feels good to us, Without concern wholly upon the rules that usually govern our movements in yoga. This idea led me to turn the lights out literally and create a space for my students to lean into these feelings. An environment that lets you lean into the places your body needs love and healing and without a single care of what this looks like to anyone else. A zero judgements atmosphere. Especially from ourselves. This practice supports my life by allowing me that space every week to let go. To deconstruct all of my stressors and feel into the bliss. The ahhhh of life. Come practice with me Mondays at 5:30 p.m. and Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. Let us close our eyes and connect with our breath together, drop into letting go that which doesn’t serve us completely, and move through the week with more grace for ourselves ” Register on MindBody JOIN US THIS WEEKEND…..

Kirtan: Call & Response Mantra Chanting w/ Brenan & Makaylah Location: URU Yoga – 9 Mile Thurs Dec 14th 7:30 – 9 pm Donation Based In this class, led by Makaylah McCleery & Brenan Woody, you will experience a taste of Bhakti Yoga. Bhakti Yoga is the path of loving devotion. Kirtan is the practice of call & response Sanskrit mantra chanting. Brenan or Makaylah will sing the chant & you are encouraged to repeat it in response! Singing is not required, but it is highly encouraged. You are always welcome to just come sit and see what it’s about before you participate. Brenan plays the hand-drum, and Makaylah plays the harmonium to support the mantras. Mantras are sacred sounds used to focus the mind on the Divine. Names of deities will be used, but this doesn’t mean that you are invoking anything outside of yourself. You are the Divine, and you are chanting to that place within YOU. We will not dive too deep into the meanings of these mantras in this class, instead- we will focus on dropping into the chanting and opening our hearts to our own unique experience. Brenan & Makaylah offer more in-depth workshops and classes to dive deeper into mythology and meaning if you are interested in learning more! There will be no Asana (physical practice) in this class. We will be seated with cushions and other supports. Dancing, standing, or lying down is also available! Just whatever you need to remain comfortable through class. We will burn incense, palo santo, or sage… if there is a student with scent sensitivity, we will forgo the burning of any scents.
