HOLA MADRE GATHERING

HOLA MADRE is a Gathering for Women who are devoted to tending the Earth and each other.

We meet with our gifts to honor the power of Sisterhood as a portal for communal healing and connection.  

Our intention is to create a container that enables us to give back to the land that supports us, for it is by the measure that we respect and honor the Earth that we too Respect and Honor our bodies.  

Let us gather to remember how to dance gently and in reciprocity with Mama Earth and all of our relations.

EXPLORE | NEW MEXICO RETREAT

A SACRED HEALING ADVENTURE

TAOS, NEW MEXICO // OCTOBER 19-22

Experience the Healing Energy of the Ancient Desert Mountains and Immerse Yourself in Nature in Breathtaking Northern New Mexico

Screen Shot 2018-06-02 at 7.24.06 PM.png

This journey offers you a full, long weekend for inner-exploration, healing, and re-connection. In communing with Spirit through visits to Sacred sites, meditative hikes with Nature, and the gift of the Healing Breathwork, you have the opportunity to develop your innate Intuitive gifts – to come into alignment with you Soul, and home to your Heart.

Each experience and practice is an invitation inward – to a deeply true listening place – learning to trust yourself, to feel safe in your authenticity; to be connected to your Intuition and connected to your body. To be fully and presently available to simply receiving the Divine guidance and Love that is already all around and within you.

Here you will expand your physical capacity to carry a stronger vibration of Love – tuning your body as an instrument, connecting to the flow of creative energy, expression, and intuitive movement. Here you will give yourself the space to heal – to set aside the "to-dos" and see what happens when you allow yourself to be truly seen and heard, and held... by YOU.

Come as you are – to deepen your existing practices, or show up 100% raw. Either way, there will be something magical and meaningful that awaits you here, something you didn't even know you needed, something that may just change your life.

HOUSING OPTIONS:

  • PRIVATE ROOM: $1288 or (2) Payments of $644

  • SHARED QUEEN ROOM: $1088 or (2) Payments of $544

  • SHARED TWIN ROOM: $988 or (2) Payments of $494

*For all room options: Your full or first payment is due by July 15th (2nd payment is due by September 15th)

MORNING YOGA~ LEIA LAYUS

For our gentle morning Yoga practice,  local New Mexico teacher, Leia Layus will be leading us!

Leia's practice is a submersion into your essence and nature around us. She lyrically guides you to merge the poetry of the movement with the elements, to merge the ethereal with the physical, subconscious with the conscious, awakening into your soft power.

Leia carries with her the traditional styles of Yoga that offer foundation, grounded-ness, and strength. Her teaching continues to explore the subtler aspects that awaken us to grace, gentleness, and our sensual nature.

 BREATHWORK ~       BETH BARBAGLIA

I am an Intuitive Empath, Healer, & Breathwork Facilitator.

It is my absolute passion and life's greatest joy to hold space for people who are ready to explore themselves. For those who crave to know their Soul and are actively seeking to heal – to release their pain and open their Hearts again.  Learn More ->

Hello  San Francisco Yogis!
I am excited to assist Tias Little at Love Story Yoga for a series of four immersion master classes! Since having left San Francisco, I have been living in New Mexico studying with Tias Little at Prajna Yoga. I am excited for my  colleagues and yoga community to share in the experience  of his teachings which I have found to be a profound way to deepen my practice as both a student and teacher. I hope that you'll join me this weekend and reconnect!

Turning Inward: A Prajna Yoga Online Offering

TurningInward3.jpg

Register here: http://www.turninginwardprajna.com/                                    Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/TurningInwardPrajna/

From December 1st through 31st you will receive a FREE guided meditation by a different Prajna Yoga teacher each day to offer a moment of stillness and pause to your day. 

These recorded meditations will be 15-20 minutes in length and will offer you support as you explore a daily sitting practice. During the holidays, this could be a way to de-stress and slow down. 

The Prajna Yoga teachings are simple and beautiful. You are not expected to "stop your mind" -- Instead, you are invited to slow down, notice the flow of your breath, observe your mind and thoughts, and notice what arises as you turn inward. In each unique offering, teachers will share inspiring passages, offer guidance through relaxation techniques, and give space for The Pause. 

We encourage you to share this with friends and family. No yoga or meditation experience is needed. All are welcome to participate in this free event.

A New Year Burning Ritual: 2 Day Yoga Workshop
Jan
13
to Jan 14

A New Year Burning Ritual: 2 Day Yoga Workshop

Join Leia Layus & Christie Rafanan for a 2-part workshop: an inward journey exploring the obstacles of both body and mind. We will use two opposing, yet balancing practices to burn the seeds of our old tendencies or patterns - freeing ourselves from the fears of these binding stories - and creating the space needed to grow while building the courage to trust that anything we put our minds to can - and will! - manifest. Come and connect deeply to your inner teacher.

Day 1 : FRIDAY, January 13th, 7pm-9pm

We will explore a ‘tapas’ practice. Tapas means self-discipline, meditation, and a means of inner self-purification (perfection of the body and the organs through the lessening of impurities). In this fiery practice, we will delve into a vigorous and dynamic flow building inner heat, exploring twists and arm balances (and probably a handstand or two!) taking a close look at the binding stories we tell ourselves and burning them in the fire of our practice.

Day 2 : SATURDAY, January 14th, 5pm-7pm

We will round out the weekend with a ‘sattvic’ practice. Sattva is the quality of balance, harmony, purity, & positive attitude. This nourishing practice will be a counter to the fiery vigorous practice of Friday evening as we move through a methodic flow of heart and hip openers. This practice is designed to ease and nourish the mindbody allowing us to plant new seeds of what we truly want to manifest in our lives.

-----------------------

COST: $50/per workshop**

           $90/bundle**                                           

 

**A portion of the proceeds will be donated to San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center (http://sfcapc.org); please share this event with your friends and family so that we can help raise awareness and funds to support San Francisco's at-risk youth. We believe if we can empower our youth with self-study, compassion and love, then we can create positive change for the future.**
