Ayurvedic Spring Cleanse with Dragonfly!
DETOX, REFRESH, & RENEW Your Body and Mind!

Beginning  April 18th

SOLD OUT!! Next Cleanse TBA

Our Traditional Ayurvedic Cleanse gives clients an opportunity to clear stagnant energy, clean out the channels of our digestion and elimination by rooting out toxins in our bodies and processed foods in our diets, lose those stubborn pounds, create and learn how to sustain a healthier diet, lifestyle, and how to navigate our way back into balance after periods of stress or illness.

Many people cleanse annually, although it is recommended in both Spring and Fall to help you maintain optimal health year round. The traditional Ayurveda cleanse is a 15-21-day cleanse with a mono diet of Kitchari (a thick soup made with rice, dahl, and yummy Indian spices) offered in the middle week. Along with ghee, fresh fruits, veggies, appropriate spices, and whole grains, the Ayurvedic cleanse is light but wholesome, and it supports body, mind, and spirit, making it sustainable and a healthy option for almost everyone. We include important information on Ayurvedic self care to help you optimize your experience, and your package includes sesame oil for self massage and oral care. Our cleanse is wholesome, grounding, clearing, and supportive to your wellbeing!

OUR NEXT GUIDED CLEANSE BEGINS Tuesday, April 18th! SOLD OUT

Yoga Nidra~The Art of Conscious Relaxation

NEXT CLASS TBA
with Katie O’Connell, E-RYT 500, AHP, AYT

Yoga Nidra is an ancient and powerful healing modality found in the oldest philosophical yoga texts, and that offers the participant a deep state of conscious rest and relaxation during which one’s awareness of the subtle energy body is expanded. While reclining comfortably, participants are guided through each of the koshas (five layers of your being), all while remaining perfectly still. The goal is to remain “awake and aware,” even though the physical body is enjoying profound rest.

Yoga Nidra is proven to: *balance the autonomic nervous system *create calm in the body and mind *strengthen the immune system *lower blood pressure *relax the busy mind *incite our natural ability to heal ourselves *increase one’s creativity *increase the flow of prana in the body *relieve pain, and more!

Conditions addressed by Yoga Nidra practice: PTSD, ADD, ADHD, insomnia, MS, chronic pain, anxiety and depression, cancer, eating disorders, digestive conditions, addiction, aggression, stress, asthma, and the list goes on!

Please BRING: Your own bed pillow, and if you like, you can bring your own blanket. Wear comfy, cozy clothes, and prepare for the bliss!!

Katie is certified in this method by the California College of Ayurveda.

PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUESTED. 5 PERSON MINIMUM TO RUN THIS CLASS.

What’s My Dosha & Why Does it Matter?

NEXT CLASS: 

The word Ayurveda means “the science of life,” and together with yoga, it is a comprehensive system for how to live a well-balanced, healthy, and happy life. Katie’s presentation will include basic Ayurvedic principles (5 elements, Ayurvedic clock, seasonal influences, and diet), as well as time to interact and discuss. This workshop is for anyone wondering about the basic principles of Ayurveda and how to apply them to one’s own body, mind, and spirit. Together in pairs, we will use a dosha assessment to determine our current state (vikruti), and use this insight to better understand ourselves (habits, tendencies, patterns, health issues), as well as give us some direction for how to begin return balance to our bodies and minds. This workshop begins at 10 and runs about 90 minutes, depending on questions and interaction.

Cost is only $15 and includes tea, handouts & a special tri-doshic Ayurveda treat!

$20 drop in.

Restorative Yoga & Reiki: The Perfect Pair!

NEXT DATE TBA @ Dragonfly Yoga

with Katie O’Connell & Leslie Jose

Restorative Yoga is great for every body, offering a respite from the stress of daily life and work, and calming the sympathetic nervous system so the parasympathetic nervous system can take over, allowing the body to relax and heal. It is especially helpful for those recovering from illness, trauma, or injury, as well as for women in pre or post natal care whose bodies are lovingly supported with restorative postures. For those who find slowing down difficult, this practice is essential, complementing an active person’s workout practice, and simply allowing for a restored sense of Self. Honor your body and quietly rejuvenate your spirit while the poses soothe the organ system and allow the brain to quiet. Using bolsters, pillows, blankets, and other props to support the body in a variety of passive poses, students remain in a given posture for 10-15 minutes, focusing only on the breath as they are eased into a state of relaxation. Peaceful music, poetry, and guided imagery help participants to release stress, tension, and “let go” of what does not serve the body and mind.

Take everything in the description above, and add Reiki… you’ll never want to leave the studio! Katie leads the class in restorative yoga poses while Leslie Jose, ARMT, LMT, along with Katie (Reiki II), offer Reiki healing to everyone who wants to receive it. Students are visited during each pose to aid in the movement of blocked energy and the intention to heal dis-ease in the body. Inspiring readings, intention setting, relaxing music, and candlelight create a profoundly beautiful opportunity to practice a very healing kind of yoga.
