Yoga day

In honor of the world’s first International Yoga Day… Lila Yoga Studio will offer free classes all day!

This historic event is a worldwide celebration and acknowledgment of unity and peace.The human mind is capable of such divisiveness. The great science of yoga gives us the tools to realize our place within and as part of the whole. Each of us is a vital part of the cosmos… Sending waves of energy through time and space.

When we practice yoga we are harmonizing, quieting distractions and being at one. A healthy mind supports healthy body, healthy community, healthy world within the cosmic all. I invite each of you to come and celebrate the magnificence of noncompetitive goodness, love, clarity, tranquility, peace…YOGA!!! ~Erica

“Delve deep into the healing sound current as Crown Of Eternity envelopes you in their unique blend of sacred mantras, cosmic instrumentals and a wall of gongs. Bathe in waves of sound from multiple gongs, bells and Himalayan singing bowls. The deep complex harmonics of multiple gongs quickly silence the mind and entrain the brain into a spontaneous state of deep meditation. The rhythmic sound oscillations facilitate the movement of prana through the body and deliver a deep energetic reboot of the nervous system. These sacred sounds are transmitted into the tissues and are often experienced as a full body sound massage that allows us to let go of stress, worries, anxieties, doubt, fears and feelings that have a negative effect on our health and life. Listeners often describe out of body experiences, seeing beautiful colors behind their eyes, past life impressions, expanded awareness and higher states of consciousness.”

Lila Soul Dance

April 21st, 2015 by Nikki Kapp

Next Soul Dance will be May 1st, 7-9pm


Lila Soul Dance is a safe and supportive environment to explore your inner dance and contact improvisation, allowing the freedom to move with your inner passion. Through contact improv techniques, we will play with the physics of movement, through pressing, extending, giving/receiving weight, in solo and duet explorations. Together we move to music played by talented live musicians, opening up a dialogue between dancers and musicians. 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 - no date -700PX

LSD is held once a month, is open to public, and free of charge (donations welcome). No dance experience is necessary, this is completely freeform dance, all you need to do is show up!

April’s Theme: Renewal

April 13th, 2015 by Nikki Kapp


Spring!!! Can you feel an exuberant birth of wondrous joy rise?! (allergies too:) And with longer daylight hours are you noticing extra energy?

Our moods and energy quality and quantity levels are directly related to the climate, atmospheric pressure, and seasons. It’s so wild how us humans like to think of ourselves is separate from our habitat. The truth is our internal environment (body/mind) and our external environment are linked.

Yoga is the science of living a healthy balanced life.

Lila Yoga is unique in that it works with our relationship to energy in the body/mind and around the body. Each moment and situation in our lives requires a specific energy quantity, quality, physical location and movement of energy, and expression of energy. When we have a disproportionate amount of energy or a inappropriate energy quality given into any situation, it causes stress. Becoming aware of this process, enables us to make more informed decisions.

I am interested in the human condition…the relationship between our awareness (mindfulness), our actions and conditions/manifestations as they relate internally within our body / mind and within the “external” environment–our habitat.

May this months and this season bring about in each of us a RENEWAL of AWARENESS and SUSTAINABILITY within ourselves and within our habitat.
Happy Earth Day!!!
Happy Spring!!!
Happy Renewal!!
