Yoga Nidra - Rest & Restore
With Mary Mayer

Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra are two relaxing practices that promote a deep sense of well being. In Restorative Yoga we make use of props to support the body in very gentle poses that allow for deep relaxation of body and mind. Then we will experience a long savasana using the techniques of Yoga Nidra, including body relaxation, breath awareness and guided visualization, creating a state of conscious awareness. From this state of deep relaxation and conscious awareness comes true healing of body , mind and spirit. You will leave feeling rested and restored!

Bring a yoga mat, your favorite pillow and a comfy blanket and get ready to deeply heal.

Cost: $25 or $20 with a friend

When? Friday September 29th from 7:00-8:30 PM

Because of the individual attention Mary gives, we are keeping this class limited to only 6 people. if you are interested please reserve your spot below.

Laughter Yoga - Laugh for the Health of It!

Laughter Yoga - Laugh for the Health of It!

Village Wellness (map)

With Mary Mayer, Registered Yoga Teacher, Laughter Wellness Yoga Coach

We have all heard the phrase "Laughter is the best medicine". Come deeply heal! Laughter Yoga isn't "yoga" in the traditional sense. In fact, we also call this practice "Laughter Wellness". There are no yoga poses involved and we don't tell jokes! We use playfulness to engage the group in shared laughter and combine that with breathing, gentle movement and mindfulness.

Founded by an Indian physician in 1995, the laughter yoga movement seeks to promote the profound psychological and physiological benefits of laughter. 

Laughter Yoga is a complete well-being workout that combines unconditional laughter with yoga breathing and gentle movement. This practice is suitable for all physical abilities. You don’t need to be flexible or funny. You just need a sincere desire to laugh more and feel better!

Laughter Yoga is simple yet profound. It has been scientifically proven that laughing can relieve depression and anxiety, increase the efficiency of your lungs, heart and immune system and reduce pain. Come experience the wonderful benefits!

Cost: $15 or $10 each with friend

Time: Sunday 1-2pm

Upcoming Dates:

Laughter Yoga in the News! 

 - this CNN video! 'Why Faking Laughter is good for you' with Dr. Sanjay Gupta

 - Huffington Post: I Tried Laughter Yoga And It Actually Made Me Happier

What our students are saying:

"I enter the class stressed and leave relaxed and happy.  Her creative visualizations work
almost immediately.  Her voice is calm, relaxing and soothing. Mary is amazing! 
I highly recommend, "Laughing Yoga" to all who want to place joy back into their
vocabulary"
- Arleen

"Laughter yoga is a unique experience that anyone will enjoy. It allows you to tap into that "child-like" essence of yourself that can easily get lost. Mary is a wonderful yoga teacher and brings a warm and inviting atmosphere to the class. I highly recommend taking a class with her!"

"I loved the location, and Mary is a fantastic yoga teacher. It was light-hearted and fun, not intimidating. It was a nice format by which we got to meet others and talk with them, whereas in a formal yoga class you won't really talk to others."- Stephanie Fortunato

"I liked that the laughter fed off of other people - regular yoga seems individual - more of a group with this program. Also, I don't need a fancy pants mat and rope for this program. I liked doing the HOOKY POKEY ! and laughing with imaginary phone.
It's hard to be depressed when you are laughing so hard you are going to pee your pants."
-David Gerbstadt

Shamanic Journey: Meditation of Light

Shamanic Journey: Meditation of Light

With Stephanie Moore, Shamanic Practitioner

This workshop is an introduction to the ancient art of shamanic journey. We will use anthropologist, Micheal Harner's method of journeying to guide our experience. Come find out what our ancestors have known for centuries- discover the magic and healing of the worlds within you, waiting to be discovered.

We will take time to prepare for our journey by discussing the necessary steps, Q&A, and centering together. Journeying like meditation is a tool for spiritual growth. It is also a tool that can be used for healing, obtaining information, and for working through personal issues. Once we begin, Stephanie and David will drum and hold sacred ceremony space as you journey. This workshop and journey circle is open to all people of all backgrounds and all experiences.

When? 7:30-9:30 PM
