The Divine Feminine Yoga Series

Designed to help individuals identify and embrace the archetypes of the divine feminine, this 3-week series guides you through your emotional mind and body, specifically the feminine centers - the heart (4th) and sacral (2nd) chakras. The series includes 3 touch-infused yoga sequences embodying the divine feminine archetypes to awaken our awareness to its presence. 

Part asana, part discussion we'll briefly explore the history of the divine feminine and how it's currently represented in modern day society as well as our personal relationship to it or lack thereof. Journaling and group discussion encourage community exploration of the 6 divine feminine archetypes while lending space for interpersonal healing. Bring your yoga mats, a pen and journal to take notes.

This workshop is for those who have, knowingly or unknowingly, fought against the patriarchal system to the point where they’ve come to resist themselves and their flow. This workshop is for the individual who’s divine feminine has been calloused by trauma and victimization. This workshop is for the community member who’s divine feminine has been socially suppressed because it doesn’t match the image of the female gender.

This workshop is for you if you’re ready to embrace your divine feminine energy in alignment with the divine creator and source within you. Expect to learn the nature of your feminine energetic body and mind in order to embrace your own unique divine feminine and confidently embody it!

Sleep - An Ayurvedic Perspective

Sleep - An Ayurvedic Perspective

Sleeping consists of about one third of our life. This third of our life is an essential time for our body to heal and regenerate so we can show up more fully to all of our life's work. An average person loses 11.3 days of work time per year due to sleep disorder and in the US, $63.2 billion are lost in work productivity. Sleep loss causes suppression of our immune system, it adversely affects our cognition, decision making, as well as creativity and imagination, making us less efficient and more stressed. Sleep disorders also have negative effects on all of our relationships.
In this conversation about sleep, we will talk about individualized approaches to treating sleep disorders. We will discuss various causes, effects and ways to counteract these issues using home remedies, herbs, and Ayurvedic medicine. 

After our discussion, we will make our way out of the classroom and into the lobby to enjoy homemade Ayurvedic snacks and answer any questions. 

Talk will be lead by: Dr Anup Mulakaluri, ND and AWC, and Afrin Sopariwala, AWP

Cost: $20

The physical practice of yoga strengthens our relationship between our mind and our body; when we introduce Ayurveda, we continue to strengthen that relationship by connecting them to the rhythms of nature. Come meditate, flow and discuss how to strengthen these connections, recognize imbalances and adjust accordingly for Fall.

Yoga Clothing Swap

We all have those yoga pants or that yoga top that we thought was a great buy, but in reality we don't much care for the article of clothing. We don't want to get rid of it because it's still good, but we only wear it when everything else is dirty. It's a vicious cycle!

Good news, we're offering you a way out of that vicious cycle by hosting a gently used yoga clothing swap! Join us for a lovely afternoon of swapping, tea drinking, and yoga. 

The swap will run from 2:30-4pm. The swap will be followed by our 4pm Pitta (restorative/yin) yoga class. 

The special drop-in price for this event is $15. If you already have a class package with Eka, you're good to go!

* You must bring something to the swap in order to take something from the swap.
