December 14, 2018 would have been BKS Iyengar's 100th Birthday. Watch for details on how we will invite you to celebrate with us.
Drumming, chanting, mindfully walking or running, practicing yoga poses, meditation, prayer, playing music, writing -- there are many ways to access the power & the presence that each of us is.
To honor National Yoga Month, join us on Wednesday, September 19 at 5:15 pm. We will aim to experience the vastness that BKS Iyengar introduces to all of his students as they learn and then deepen their Iyengar yoga poses. We will begin the evening at 5:15 (til 6:30) with a FREE class, open to all levels, then have a short snack break (bring your own) until beginning at 7:00 with Quincy Drum Circle & Singing Bowls. Guided by Michael Vera-Eastmond, the drum circle's power & presence will make way for a quieter experience as we lie over bolsters to listen to Michael's singing Tibetan bowls to conclude the evening.
Fee for drum circle & singing bowls is a love offering, which will be shared by Michael & Redbud Yoga. The yoga class is free. To register, go to Class Descriptions & Registration.
Welcome the weekend by accessing your inner wisdom & energy! Jan will guide some short bursts of meditation as well as some longer stays at the Quincy Art Center on three more dates in 2018:
Friday, September 14, 5:30-6:30 pm
Friday, October 12, 5:30-6:30 pm
Friday, December 7, 7:00-8:00 pm
Our intention is to honor ourselves (body & spirit), as well as the art and the artist. Our rhythm is to gather for meditation at least once during each new exhibit at the art center. Both experienced and novice meditators are welcome. This class is free for Quincy Art Center members & $8 for non-members.
Discover the peace that you are.
Many thanks to Stacy Smith from WGEM television news for her willingness to share our enthusiasm for Iyengar yoga and its benefits during pregnancy -- and to our students for being willing to share their own experience with yoga and to be filmed this past Monday evening in our 6:00 class. Stacy's story about exercise and pregnancy aired on February 21.
For each new exhibit at the Quincy Art Center, 1515 Jersey, Jan will be leading a guided meditation class to honor the artists and their works.
Free for art center members and $8 for non-members, these classes usually include both novice and experienced meditation practitioners. Jan uses materials from a variety of traditions. Meditation can be a spiritual practice but is not necessarily a religious one -- and spirituality belongs to all of us.
Friday, October 13 from 5:30 until 6:30 will be our next session -- join us!
