October’s Theme: Simplify

October 13th, 2014 by Nikki Kapp

theme of month - oct 2


Fall is here! Let’s Simplify

This applies in two general ways:

1. Mental Clarity in Mindful Actions: Our lives are full, active and involve many considerations & decisions. Learning to choose when to zoom into detail and when to zoom out to a panoramic view is a life skill worth practicing. Learning how to simplify by understanding your true choices & their trajectory.

2. Non-Neediness / Greedlessness in Thoughts & Items (Yama: Aparigraha): the ability to not gather  unnecessary thoughts within you or things around you…wanting only what you need and keeping only what you need.

Simply Practice Contentment (Niyamas: Santosha). If we can recognize that contentment is available to us, that we can choose it as a life quality within us, then we will see that we have choices in how we think and act. Yoga involves the skill transcending the fluctuations of the mind.  Learning to simplify can help us stop the mind-cycles of over consideration or desires for external things.

Peace and happiness within.

Lila Soul Dance

October 8th, 2014 by Nikki Kapp

Next Soul Dance is Friday Nov 7th @ Lila Yoga Studios and will feature a Contact Improv workshop led by Erica Kaufman + Live Music by Daryl Branford!!!

Lila Soul Dance is a safe and supportive environment to explore your inner dance, allowing the freedom to move with your inner passion. As a community, we dance to free our inhibitions, express and explore our physical energies, and learn to follow our intuitive dance (this kind of physical freedom, respect, love and exploration is part of the Lila Yoga tradition).

FreeSoulDance flyer - 9pm

Sessions fall on the First Friday of each month and are open to public, free of charge (donations welcome). No dance experience is necessary, this is completely freeform dance, all you need to do is show up! You are not required to stay for the full 2 hours, we will start together at 7 pm but if you need to leave early, no problem!

A facilitator will be present to keep the space safe and periodically contact improvisation will be taught by Erica Kaufman.
