JOIN US FOR A DAY OF HEALING
The full moon in March has many different names due to its signifying changing from winter to spring. It’s Time to Set Yourself Free from the Restraints of Winter and Swim to the Moon.
Winter Retreating – the Beginning of Springtime!
Use this extra Full Moon energy to make the necessary changes in your life. The Native American full moon names for March are largely based on these being considered the last full moons of winter; the crow caws its farewell to the season. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter .In Native American Medicine the Crow represents: Justice, shape shifting, change, creativity, spiritual strength, energy, community sharing, and balance. So let’s remember the gifts that this period brings and trust that this is a good time of reflection and revising your journey in life. In the grand flow of life, these inward moving energies are conducive for fine tuning and helping to bring greater clarity, awareness, and focus.
Leia Layus: Yin Yang Flow
“We are the seasons. We are the Elements. Nature is without and within us, each of us every moment. We are a replica of the universe passing from season to season in a natural unending cycle of life.” Dianne M. Connelly
Elemental Yoga connects us with nature and the seasons within ourselves. We will meditate on the Sky and Ocean to draw this into our moving meditation. As we cycle through Winter, we will replenish ourselves by moving inward in our mind and move gently as we bring life back into our body.
By blending gentle flow, satya yoga, and aligning
our subtle-body to the cyclical nature of the earth
and elements- we allow ourselves to be
unveiled and to remember our essence, our being,
our soft power. Awakening to the sweetness of our senses through aromatherapy, meditation, poetry and movement.
Choose a way in- each path leads to the state of yoga.

Reiki + Sound Healing: Lindsey Kraten
Singing and playing music have always been a huge part of Lindsey's life, ever since youth. During her travels in India, she realized the incredibly profound healing power of sound vibration. Here 5 week teacher training course involved daily chanting of mantras in Sanskrit. She felt a very profound shift in her connection to her own voice, encountering a deep sense of liberation through singing sacred mantra. Lindsey completed her Music, Voice and Sound Healing certification under the instruction of Silvia Nakkach at the California Institute of Integrative Studies in San Francisco in 2016. Since then, her private and public sound healing offerings have began to evolve into something very beautiful and profound. Lindsey has a beautiful collection of sacred instruments including crystal singing bowls, shruti box, tuning forks, hand drum, gong, percussive instruments, koshi chimes, and her voice.
Lindsey's most recent exploration has been with Reiki energy healing. Her first encounter with Reiki was with her mother whom began giving her private healing sessions to help alleviate stress. After personally experiencing the profound effects Reiki had on her, she realized this was something she knew she wanted to offer her community. She completed her Reiki 1, 2, 3 and Master attunement with Alan Waugh of Spirit Wisdom Healing, a Shamanic Reiki healer and spiritual guide from the UK. Since then, she has began offering unique private healing sessions where she combines Reiki and sound healing elements.
