    Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" - sun/stimulating energy with the "Tha" - moon/calming energy.

    Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening.  Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat.

    Heart beats, footsteps, turn signals, dripping faucets, babies sleeping, all have a rhythm of their own.  Drums and drumming have been apart of the human expression from the beginning of time.  Womanspace gathers a group monthly to express our joy of rhythm with whatever instrument we  have, or  would like to borrow.  If you have a djembe, dunan, frame drum, or any other percussive instrument please bring them.. We encourage all ages,to come to enjoy the camaraderie of making music together. We will explore traditional drumming rhythms, the rhythms of sayings, Nursery rhymes,  and connect with each other and to the earth. We will also express some emotions through drumming.  Anger ,love , fellowship and contentment can also be expressed as we settle into the rhythm of drumming out our human nature. No talent,  drum or previous experience required.

    Advance registration appreciated. Walk-ins welcome.

This is a beginning class where different forms of meditation are introduced and practiced in a seated position. Bring a yoga mat or rug if you would like to do this lying down.

    From the beginning of time, sound has been one of the most powerful healers. When sound waves enter and pass through our body, it results in vibrational changes. Tuning Fork Therapy uses sound and vibration to assist your physical body's organs, tissues, glands, cells, etc to reach their optimal vibrational frequency (OVF) thus allowing them to self heal. It is also helpful for reducing stress, tension, and pain management. Tuning fork therapy can also be used for deepening a spiritual connection, increasing mental clarity/focus and balancing the mind, body, and spirit. 

    Edgar Casey stated that sound (vibration) would be the medicine of the future. Tuning fork therapy draws upon the science of sound and ancient practices to create a harmonic holistic approach to health and well being.

    "There are places in the heart and soul only sound can touch."

    You are welcome to bring your lunch. Advanced registration is preferred. Walk-ins are welcome.

    DIET. BINGE. REPEAT... Are you tired of the cycle? Have you tried numerous diets in an effort to lose weight only to gain it all back and then some? Annette McLean, LCPC CEDS explains why the traditional answer to losing weight does not work and leaves us disillusioned and feeling like a failure. She believes our problems with weight are about much more than food. As she explains, we have not ended up in this situation because we are flawed, but rather because for many of us, food has been the tool we have used to manage emotions and care for ourselves. Drawing on her background in cognitive behavioral and feminist theory, Annette's. The Hands That Feed Me offers readers a path back to wellness and recovery. Among other things, we will learn · The basic mechanics of recovery · How we need to aim for recovery more gently and how force and perfectionism delay our progress. · How to “observe” as opposed to getting “hijacked’ by our emotions. · How to investigate our thoughts in a kind and respectful way · How to develop our inner voice of wisdom, called our self-mothering voice · How to recognize our struggle as a way to more deeply understand ourselves and transform our suffering into emotional and spiritual growth. Using a step by step feeling regulation tool (SOFT AIM) combined with the basic mechanics of recovery and providing space for self-reflection, The Hands That Feed Me is your go to guide for recovery from compulsive eating.

    Reiki (ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning 'Universal Life Force Energy' and describes the energy found in all of life.  An ancient form of hands on energy healing, Reiki is a skill obtained through an attunement (opening) to bring the power of Universal Life Force Energy through the human chakra system.  The energy then is used to balance the body or an object by bringing it into harmony with the universe once again.

    In Reiki Two, you will learn symbols and mantras to focus and deepen the healing treatment of the Reiki energy. We will talk about the sacredness of the Reiki symbols. We will also begin to learn ways to send Reiki through time and distance, allowing healing in the past to improve the present. Time will be allotted to practice feeling energy and giving Reiki to each other.  

    Please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing, with no jewelry or perfumes. Bring a sack lunch.

    Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. With regular practice, Yoga Nidra has been found to reduce stress, tension, anxiety and depression. Additionally, Yoga Nidra is beneficial for insomnia, aids in calming symptoms of chronic pain, and has been shown to help those with PTSD or other psychological wounds. It is said that one hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to 4 hours or sleep! Learn this practice of self-inquiry. Restore your energy and relax into the real you. Expect to spend the majority of this class reclined on your yoga mat on the floor. (Please talk with Keri before class begins if you need to be seated.)

    Three Identical Strangers

    In 1980 New York, three young men who were all adopted meet each other and find out they’re identical triplets who were separated at birth. The 19-year-olds’ joyous reunion catapults them to international fame but it also unlocks an extraordinary and disturbing secret that goes beyond their own lives—and could transform our understanding of human nature forever. Their quest for the complete truth, which to this day is not fully know, leads them to believe that where and how they grew up was not by accident.

    Advanced Registration by the day before is REQUIRED for food counts.  NO WALK-INS.  We start with supper, followed by the film and then a discussion of the film, characters, and artistry.

    Did you Know?


    Quark is an essential part of the Budwig protocol. Dr Johanna Budwig (1908 - 2003) was a biochemist who developed a natural cure for cancer by combining the sulfur rich amino acids found in quark cheese with the omega-3 acids in flaxseed oil in a 2:1 ratio. This Budwig mixture is garnished with ground flax seeds, fresh fruit and nuts. The Budwig protocol is a natural whole food diet and holistic lifestyle approach to improve cancer, heart disease and arthritis. Dr Budwig was nominated six times for the Nobel Prize in medicine and has written 12 books.

    Bladder leakage is NOT normal and should never be accepted as a NORMAL part of aging or as a natural consequence to giving birth. Yet, statistics show that 1 in 4 women over the age of 18 will develop a pelvic floor muscle dysfunction (PFMD) at some point in their lives.  Education is the key to prevention. Empowering yourself toward learning crucial selfcare tips now can help you reduce or eliminate any symptoms you might notice today. PFMD symptoms can include bladder leakage, urgency/frequency, organ prolapse/pelvic pressure, constipation, painful intercourse, and more.  We will learn what the pelvic floor is, how it affects, and is affected by, everything in your life. In this class you will learn 3 habits that could not only make the difference in taking back bladder control but improving your bowel and sexual health.

    We are delighted to be able to offer a once a month support group that focuses on sharing from the perspective of our soul and higher self. This group will work equally well for those who already have information about chakras and would like further exploration, and for those who are new to these ideas. The purpose of the Chakra Club is to help us find deeper meaning, wholeness, and healing--as we tap into our higher consciousness in sharing our personal experiences and combined wisdom. The chakras connect our minds and bodies with our souls and higher consciousness. As we bring healing to our inner selves, our true soul-selves shine forth; and we increase our ability to create lives that work and are truly fulfilling.

    Most of the time we exist in mindlessness, a state of semi-awareness governed by habit and inattention. Mindlessness causes us to suffer, probably more than we are even aware. Mindfulness can be defined in a variety of ways, but simply stated it is a deliberate way of paying attention to what is happening within oneself as it is happening. Mindfulness is moment-by-moment awareness. It’s paying attention without judgment or evaluation. When we are mindful, we become more mentally alert, we’re more open and attentive and we’re able to perceive ourselves more clearly – as well as observing details that often escape our notice. If you can identify with any of these statements, you may find this monthly group very helpful.


    *Note: there must be a minimum of 4 people registered by Friday preceding class in order for class to run.

    Facilitator: Marge Blake

    Have you ever experienced something you just can't explain and haven't been able to talk about it? Do you get feelings that you know something is going to happen? Do you think you see something and then it isn't there? Have you been somewhere and suddenly feel your hair raising on your arms, or feel a cold chill run through your body? Do you have pictures or video of unexplained objects or balls of light? In this group we will share our experiences, pictures, videos, and stories we have with the unknown in a safe, nurturing, and nonjudgemental environment. 
    Members of the group may choose to go on field trips and learn how to use different equipment to gain better insight on what we are experiencing.
