IT IS POSSIBLE to alter our reactions to life’s upsets and steady our minds, even in difficult times. We can, in fact, move from anxiousness to awareness, and from stress to breath.
IN THE MIDDLE of major change, tumult, and uncertainty, we can go from feeling overwhelmed -- or “under water” -- and learn how to surf life’s nonstop waves.
COME JOIN US for a personal adventure in guided meditation and visualization, quiet Zen-style sitting, and discussion to bring forth the kind of presence and inner strength these times call for.
EACH CLASS is approx. 75 minutes each Tuesday night, starting at 7 pm*
*NOTE 1: if Tuesday night Vinyasa Yoga classes start up again this fall, then our meditation class will move back to an 8 pm start time.
COST:$20 per individual class or 3 classes for $50.
NOTE 2:Please bring your own meditation cushions if you have them. If we have to provide you with chairs or cushions, we will ask you to bring your own towel to cover it. We will limit each meditation class to eight (8) people to ensure proper distancing. Turnout, the state of the pandemic in our area, Suffolk Dept of Healthand NY State directives will all determine how long the meditationcourse will go.
If everything holds steady or improves, there will be nine (9) Tuesday night classes between 9/22 and 11/24, with no class on Election Day, 11/3.

LEARN POSES WITH APPLIED ACUPRESSURE POINTS
TO ENHANCE YOUR OWN HEALTH
In yoga we have postures/poses used in specific order to support our health. Acupuncture is an ancient practice now recognized by Western Medicine practices.
Lesa will present how to use Yoga to assess imbalance in the body and what sequences can be applied for optimal health. Laura will teach what acupressure points can do to optimize your health in general or in between sessions with your acupuncturist.
Put the two together and double the benefits.
The Workshop: This 2 hour workshop is from Oct 2020. It is now available for purchase.
