Soulful Stretch and Strength is a class designed for those that struggle with yoga and still want to move their body mindfully. This class will begin and end on the floor and move through postures that stretch, strengthen and tone the body, while increasing body awareness. We will work with one breath, one movement cycles that support ease of movement and inner balance.
Prana Flow Vinyasa is a style of yoga that supports you in connecting to your inner rhythms. Each of the namaskars are performed within the breathwave cycle and provide both lunar and solar options, depending on your energy level. The practice is guided with invitations to listen to your body as you move through the 3 part wave sequence. The first, Initiation Wave, sets the tone and warms the core. The second, Essential Wave, is the main body of the practice and the third, closing wave leads us through backbends, counterposes and regenerative inner arts. Every Prana Vinyasa class will synchronize with the subtleties of the moon cycles, the seasonal shifts and the global awareness of how the macrocosm moves to the microcosm and the micro to the macro. Certified with a 300 hour program from Shiva Rea

The gbw is a sweaty, fun and effective way to strengthen and tone your entire body, while maintaining your feminine curves!!! (And maybe even adding some more!) This 55 min class will include a quick but high energy warm up that will get our heart rates going and our bodies warm and ready to build those curves!! Then we will move into our toning and strengthening moves, designed to help create more stability, balance, “usable” strength (lots of deep core work!!) and tone your entire body! We will end class with a cool down and stretching session to help keep those muscles long and lean ... and our minds and bodies relaxed!!! Join Julie at noon every Thursday at Embody Studio. Come see what your goddess body can do!!! All dance and fitness levels welcome!

Ecstatic Dance is a free-form movement journey where the music is our teacher. It aims to provide a safe space for a contemplative, freestyle dance that supports individual expression, physical and emotional well being, and community - in a spirit of sacredness and mutual respect.
Most often the music offered is created from DJ Yamuna (Brietta)!
Brietta sets you up with a personal tool or a movement inquiry that can inspire the musical journey. She is sourcing from her years of studying and leading Conscious Dance through the Soul Motion tradition, which began for her in 2001. Take a trip around the world with these global vibes, that inspire all the different aspects of you to be expressed.
KAP is a transformative experience of exploration and expansion. It is a process of raw life force energy transmission that is designed for removing limitations, releasing stagnant energetic blocks and reconnecting with your highest self for spiritual growth and as a method to experience deeper non-dual states of consciousness.
As the blockages in you dissipate with the flow of energy, you will become clear and experience a profound sense of wholeness. This inner shift toward self-love and unity transforms your external and internal experiences. Growth and healing are the most common experiences for KAP participants. During KAP there are not guided poses or breathwork, it is a surrender to the life force energy that exists for you and surrender to the connection of human and divine light in and around us.
The benefits of KAP are similar to those experienced after and during deep meditation. This kundalini activation process is a direct transmission that activates Kundalini human-divine energy. As soon as the transmission of energy begins, physical, emotional, and traumatic blocks start to dissipate and dissolve. It is common for emotions to be felt, expressed and released during KAP. Releasing blocked or stuck emotion is important for growth and healing to occur and as we can relax into this process we can embrace it and ourselves on a deeper level . If your healing path has lead you to consider a session of KAP you are likely to experience an expansion beyond what you imagined is possible. KAP is perfect for those who are awake and wish to become fully alive while here now.
The transmission of life force energy during KAP can align the external world with your truest sense of life and your authentic self. You may find yourself making changes with your diet, habits, thoughts, patterns and experiences. The energy transmission can result in a state of calm and peace that you have struggled to achieve with self-willed spiritual practices. During a session you may feel like energy is lifting your soul and guiding you to your truest and highest self but the most profound effects take place after a KAP session. These experiences continue to deepen with each KAP experience
Kundalini Yoga is a powerful yogic tradition that invites you to experience greater levels of awareness and human potential. The combination of breathing and meditation techniques , sacred sound vibrations, yogic postures and rhythmic movements offers a complete and whole practice, which in turn addresses the whole person; mind, body and soul.
