New Moon - Shamanic Sounds

Sananga - Yin Yoga - Sound Journey

Date: March 1st, 2024 from 6:30 - 9pm (2.5 hours)

Location: Peterborough Yoga Wellness Center - 107 Hunter St. E #201 & 202 Peterborough, ON K9H 1G7 (Parking is available at the back of the plaza or on the side streets. Entrance to the second floor studio is at the back of the building off of the parking lot).

Join Laura and Nicole for this Shamanic Sounds Journey on the Scorpio New Moon March 1st from 6:30 - 9pm.

This will be a very unique experience where you will be taken on a guided journey inward with the support of the plant medicine, Sananga, body awareness meditation, Yin Yoga and Shamanic Sacred Sounds. This will be a very specific experience, bringing in the shamanic elements of rattle, drum and jungle music during the yoga, as well as, a crystal bowl journey with channeled vocals during savasana.

The Plant Medicine Sananga is a non-psychedelic eye drop from the Amazon and traditionally used for hunting and to clear and heal one's vision, both on the physical and spiritual planes. It sharpens one's ability to see and sense their outer and inner world; decalcifying the pineal gland, opening the energy centers and bringing the body into homeostasis.

Being a fire medicine, Sananga brings a spicy, but safe and grounding experience. The spirit of this plant calls you to surrender to the intensity of sensation and allow it to open you up to a greater capacity to feel into and be WITH the moment and your highest truth.

Starting our evening with seeding our new moon intentions for the month, sharing circle, Sananga, Yoga and sound, this flow allows for the release of any stagnant or stuck emotions to move freely.

Our hope is that you find a profound presence within yourself and open up to the magic of BEing in your human body, feeling centered, grounded and alive.

  • 6:30 - Arrival & Opening Circle & Intention Setting
  • 7:00 - Guided Meditation, Sananga & Yin Yoga
  • 8:10 - Crystal Bowl & Vocal Journey
  • 8:40 - Sharing & Closing Circle

February 5th,12th,26th

6:30-7:30PM SOLD OUT - thank you!

With a balance between structure and spontaneity, we love to encourage our older students to try new elements of yoga. We do so by incorporating a variety of popular and stimulating activities using discussions, co-operative games, partner and group work. In addition, a strong focus is placed on stress-reduction, mindfulness and celebrating uniqueness. Building trust, positive relationships (with self and others), self-confidence,  respect, gratitude and compassion are fundamental themes weaved into our programming.

Our 6-week Tween/Teen yoga series is designed to help build the foundation for young adults to live a healthy lifestyle – both mentally and physically. Each class offers participants an opportunity to connect with themselves and others in a supportive, non-judgmental, non-competitive environment, as we work towards building confidence, self-esteem and self-regulation.

We aim to provide effective tools and techniques that enable students not only cope and navigate the various pressures and challenges faced by today’s youth. Over the series, students will learn and experiment with fundamental yoga postures to develop and refine several important skills, including balance, flexibility, strength, body awareness, focus and mindfulness.

Suitable for all levels, each class will include a fun mix of co-operative games, acrobatics, discussions and strong emphasis on learning how they can reduce stress though relaxation, meditation and breath work.

Limited Spaces. Pre Registration is required.
