Y12SR – The Yoga Of 12-Step Recovery @ Dragonfly Yoga Studio
Nov 17 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

The Yoga of 12-Step Recovery (Y12SR) is a practice designed to holistically address addiction. Addiction often goes unacknowledged in our culture, yet it is something we are all affected by. Each time we reach for something outside ourselves (substances, food, relationships, credit cards, etc.) to soothe or avoid our feelings, we reinforce codependent behaviors. Over time, these behaviors separates us from our true needs and power, leading us into addiction and suffering.

The Yoga of 12-Step Recovery serves people by creating a safe place where trauma & conditioned behaviors can be released. Various techniques are used to address the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of addiction. Y12SR is not a replacement for therapy or step work, but will enhance your progress within them. Every session is divided into two parts: a 12-step style discussion, and an intentionally themed yoga practice (appropriate for all levels of experience). Y12SR also supports those who are impacted by a loved one’s addictive behavior. This is an open and inclusive group that all are welcome to attend.

EVERY THIRD SATURDAY | 1 – 3:00 P.M.

Registration for these ongoing sessions is not required. However, please note that we have limited space and participation is a first come, first served basis.

COST:
In-person cash/check/credit card donations are welcome but not required. Just come!

A portion of all donations goes to support The Fiaria Project, a non-profit organization based in Bucks County, Pennsylvania dedicated to supporting foster families through transitions.

Workshop Wednesdays: Chakra Balancing Yoga Series @ Dragonfly Yoga Studio
Nov 21 @ 5:45 pm – 6:45 pm

This workshop is part of our Workshop Wednesdays series, which offers workshop instruction at group class pricing. You can drop in to any of these workshops sessions for $17 or use your existing class package (For Example: Buy a 5-pack for $70 and have an extra class left).

Chakra Balancing Yoga Series: 3rd Chakra

“A chakra is a center of organization that receives, assimilates, and expresses life force energy. Chakra translates to “wheel” or “disc” and any vortex of activity can be called a chakra. The chakra system is a seven-leveled philosophical model of the universe. In the West, we learn of this system through the discipline of Yoga. With the mental and physical practices of Yoga, the chakras represent the steps through the ever-expanding states of consciousness that bind the individual with the divine.” –Anodea Judith

In this 4-week series we will dive into the basic information around the 3rd Chakra or Manipura Chakra. We will learn what this chakra represents, yoga sequences to support balancing this chakra, as well as guided meditations to inspire introspection. A mixture of Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga, guided meditation, and silent meditation will be used to explore the facets of the Manipura Chakra. We will understand the emotion and shadow emotion related to this chakra to support us on our healing journey. Finally, we will participate in an expressive chakra exercise through art, dance, mantra, or journaling to apply the resources learned in this workshop.

Solstice Workshop: 108 Sun Salutations to Welcome Winter @ Dragonfly Yoga Studio
Dec 21 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

108 Sun Salutations to Welcome Winter!

A Portion Of The Proceeds Goes To The Fiaria Project

The Winter Solstice offers the perfect opportunity to hit the reset button on your life. It’s a time to come together as a yoga community and recommit to our priorities: self-knowledge, service, spiritual development, and gratitude. In honor of this, we will be holding a practice of 108 sun salutes on Friday, December 21 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm.

Sun salutations open and energize the entire body, and when done with total awareness, bring increased prana (life force) into the system. We will be energizing the mind, body and soul, plus having lots of fun!

Why 108? The number 108 has long been a number of significance in India, birthplace of yoga… Renowned mathematicians of Vedic culture view 108 as the number representing the Wholeness of Existence. 1 stands for Higher Truth, 0 stands for Emptiness or Completeness in spiritual practice, and 8 stands for Infinity or Eternity.

We will be practicing in 9 sets of 12 sun salutations with a break in between each set. It will be followed by a Oneness Deeksha blessing and a lovely long yoga nidra.

This practice is accessible to all levels of practitioners. No previous experience is necessary (though come ready to sweat).
