9 AM to 10:30 AM with Vanessa Van Noy and Bridget Riepl: Moving Through the Mud: A Practice to Break Through in 2022
Thich Nhat Hanh’s No Mud, No Lotus teaches us that suffering is an inevitable part of our lives and without suffering we cannot know happiness, healing, growth, and progress down the spiritual path.
All that being said, these past couple years have challenged our hearts, minds, and bodies in ways we never, even could have seen coming. Translation: life has been hard for everyone. No one got away unscathed, and everyone has been forever affected.
Yoga helps. Connection helps. Community helps. Nothing is a cure or solution, but together we learn to cope and support each other. We can restock our mental and emotional toolboxes and recharge our soul systems with tried and true treasures: music, movement, breath, kindness, compassion, and creativity. We can feel better. We can be better. We can do better.
Join Vanessa and Bridget for a much-needed reprieve from whatever BS that reality keeps throwing at you. Unroll your mat, move your body, breathe into the parts of you that hurt, or have gone numb, through these long months of stagnation.
Come if you’ve been feeling too much, or not feeling enough. Allow your mat to hold you. Open your ears, expand your mind, and move through the mud.
This practice is open to all levels!
11 AM to 12:30 PM with Rodney Salomon and Mychal Mills: Sound & Soul
Join the transformational leaders of KYDS on a journey to reconnect us back to our soul. Through simple movements, breathwork, sound and internal alchemy. This unique experience is designed to relax the physical body, release stress and anxiety from the mind and heart and awaken the divine being that exists within each one of us.
This class is designed for all levels. Half the practice will be movement and breath and the final half will be sound and a guided practice.
Supported and assisted by Ericka Uter & Jacinda Diaz
1 PM to 2:30 PM with Miles Borrero: Space V. Shape
The tension between space and shape is worth exploring. It feels like it must be one or the other, but the beauty of yoga is holding the complexity of duality, often conflicting experiences and ideas within the same space. In this practice, we will open the body up slowly, sweatily, and respectfully, with physical practices as well as by using breathwork and mantra. It will be a delicious, smoldering practice that will offer a gorgeous energetic reset and leave you feeling great in your body.
3 PM to 4:30 PM with Amanda Feinstein and Kim Traverso: Vinyasa Vibes
Go with the flow with Amanda Feinstein and Kim Traverso: This Vinyasa flow will be taught by Amanda Feinstein and Kim Traverso. Their goal is for you to leave class with a smile on your face feeling open, energized, and ready to take on the rest of your weekend. From breathwork and meditation to sequencing and music you’ll love, these two have you covered!
5 PM to 7 PM: Kirtan with Rock & Ram Kirtan Band
Kirtan is an ancient hindu/bhakti yoga musical meditation practice that combines music with sanskrit chants. The Rock & Ram Kirtan Band will bring their harmonies of the heart, mind and soul to VihbeWell on March 20th. The group is known for its blending of traditional kirtan — the ancient art of chanting — with many types of music, including rock ‘n’ roll, reggae and whatever fits the spiritual mood.
