The COVID virus has been with us for six months now! We have seen our lives turned upside down, lost jobs, lost loved ones, and changed what feels like every single part of our lives to manage this virus. Six months in, we have figured out a bit how to navigate it and live with it in our neighborhoods, schools, and workplaces. But as we move into the colder weather months we need to boost our immunity even more. We need to be Virus Warriors! And while nothing takes the place of Western medical care when disease processes are in the critical care stage, Yoga and Ayurveda have a lot to teach us about effective preventative and therapeutic measures and immune integrity. 


This workshop is lecture based. Please have a notebook and pen for note taking. Be prepared with any questions you may have as well.


The Charaka Samhita, the classic of Ayurveda, describes epidemic management and defines immunity as the ability to prevent disease and arrest its progress to maintain homeostasis. The concept of building strength of mind and body to cope with various stressors, including infection, is a cornerstone of Ayurveda practice. Similar to innate and acquired immunity, the Ayurveda concept of immunity is classified as natural, chronobiologic, and acquired.”

Friends, we ALL are being tested in ways we never imagined, you feelin' me? Astrology tells us that the tests may just keep on a-comin', which is why I wanted to create this quick practice you can use again and again to calm yourself down NOW. 

In this 30 minute recording, we get RIGHT TO IT without my signature chattiness.  

  • 3 pranayama (breathing) exercises

  • Accupressure point massage

  • Super-simple presence visualization 

For ease and accessibility to this practice, there are no yoga poses required. This simple, powerful practice is designed for immediate access and instantaneous results when you don't have the time or patience to roll out a mat and work it out through the body. I hope you'll find this helpful!

 

(Though no yoga experience is necessary, I do refer to Ujjayi breathing throughout this recording, which simply means you breathe audibly through your nose on the inhale and exhale, just in case you're not familiar.)

 
 
 
ENERGY RENEWAL LOTTERY with Karen
Enter Now!!! 
(Message me with the subject: "Energy Renewal Lottery"
Please include your cell phone number!!! I will TEXT you if you win!!!)
PLEASE NOTE: Once you have entered,
YOUR NAME REMAINS IN THE HAT unless you win!!!!!

Here's the thing: We all have times in our lives that are challenging, right? I'm no exception.Years ago I found myself starting over in mid-life, and my energy was WHACKED. OUT. Ahhh... but by the Infinite Grace of the Universe... I was surrounded with a circle of loving, generous women, all gifted healers who gave me free energy healings, massages and even haircuts. Their generosity and support was a lifeline and literally helped me change the course of my life. I'll be forever grateful.

Now it's time for me to pay it forward. 
One Saturday morning per month, I would like to offer a 1 hour Energy Renewal Session (on Zoom or by phone) to someone who could really use some support right now. Whichever body seems to be taking a hit... your physical, mental or emotional body, a session with me can help alleviate and clear the influences and result in FEELING BETTER, CALMER at PEACE, etc.  

Are you game? Read some testimonials and how the sessions work.
I will choose 1 name out of the "hat" each month, and we will schedule the best Saturday morning that works for us both that month. 
UPDATE: The NOVEMBER Winner is Barb Cummins!!! Congratulations, Barb.

LIFE during the pandemic may have your neck feeling like you've been sitting courtside watching a 3-hour tennis volley in an uncomfortable chair. The back and forth may be getting at you and your neck and shoulders could be paying the price.

Join me for a delicious hour-long remedy session to chisel away at those granite traps and start restoring some blood flow in those tissues with issues.  We'll explore a nice range of remedies to stretch and release some of the accumulated holdings. You'll need:

  • a chair

  • a doorway

  • 2 tennis balls

  • 1 long(ish) sock 

This session is OPEN TO ALL LEVELS. Great for folks working from home or for STUDENTS who are learning online!

Sunset Restorative Yoga (Via Zoom!) 
First Fridays with Layla
6:30 - 7:30pm
By Donation!  

Join me on the First Friday of the month for Sunset Restorative Yoga. This is a cozy and delightful way to ease yourself into the weekend. Restorative yoga poses will calm and reset your entire body and mind. As a practice, Restorative relies heavily on the use of yoga props. We only practice a handful of poses and hold them, or marinate in them, for a longer time. Restorative yoga is an excellent opportunity to slow down from the hectic pace of life and let your body, mind, and spirit find a sense of rest and ease. The slower pace, deep breathing, and purposeful use of supportive props triggers the parasympathetic nervous system, the rest and digest system. If you feel like you are constantly in fight-or-flight mode, this class will help you to find the deep relaxation and calm that is essential for your longterm wellness. Perfect for those recovering from injury or illness or anyone who is a human being.
