The Holiday Shoppe will begin on October 18th. This is where you can bring your handmade items to sell for the holidays! You will receive 80% of the sale and I will donate the other 20% to Camp Papillon Animal Shelter in Stroudsburg. If you would like to sell your items, you will need to sign up for a week (maybe 2 depending on how many of you want to participate) to save the space at the studio by emailing or texting me. I will have a 6’ table to display your items right in front of the desk. I will also post a picture of your items on the website and Facebook. I am looking forward to getting all of my holiday shopping done at the studio so I hope you can bring in some interesting things! I know we have painted glassware, lotions, teas, hats and gloves among other things as well. I would love to see what else our lovely community has to offer!

Crystal Bowl Sound Bath
Saturday, November 6th
The seven primary chakras are ordered by color and have associations with specific elements, symbols, gemstones and musical notes. When these chakras are working together in a healthy flow of energy, you should feel like the best version of yourself. Unobstructed chakras are associated with good health and well-being. However, when one or more of these energy centers are out of balance or blocked, this is when you might find yourself with a great number of emotional, mental or physical problems. Singing bowls are said to balance and unblock these chakras, restoring balance within the body.
The crystal singing bowl is a powerful sonic tool with tremendously potent frequencies to support balance and healing in your energy field. As it creates crystalline rhythm in your cells, you release stuck energy and awaken new cellular patterns of vibration. You let go of fear, negativity, and anxiety — and welcome in a deep sense of inner peace and compassion.
Vyolet uses crystal singing bowls made of pure quartz crystal that produce a beautiful resonant sound when vibration is introduced into them. The sounds created by the bowls have an immersive quality, rich in musical overtones that wash over the body and soul to create a unique experience of healing.
Sound healing has many benefits, helping to: release trauma, chronic pain, depression, sleep, anxiety, improved focus, supporting one's immune system and overall health, and helps to achieve homeostasis. During a sound healing session you may experience sensations of heat, vibrations, slight pain or tingling, sense of harmony, connectedness, deep relaxation and a sense of calm. When a crystal singing bowl is alive with vibrations the sound and harmonic rhythms sync with our body to create change within our physical, mental and emotional body.
To join the workshop, please sign up via sign-up genius.
Goddess Movement Workshop
Sunday, November 14th
We are very excited to welcome Teri Gaglione to the studio to teach us Belly Dancing!
Belly Dance is a form of movement that is ancient in origin & diverse in cultural influences. The dance has remained popular throughout time because of its benefits. These include the physical
aspects of strengthening, toning & tightening muscle groups, while
also developing flexibility & range of motion throughout the body.
The dance teaches graceful movement, improved posture & imparts empowerment as dancers work on body awareness & isolation of muscle groups. The dance focuses on specific elements of body movement corresponding to energy centers, chakras, encouraging
free flow of chi throughout the body.
To dance comfortably, wear yoga or dance appropriate clothes, soft slippers, socks or barefoot. Hip scarves & veils are provided by Teri.
Dance steps are simple, easy to follow, no dance background needed.
Expect to have much fun, get a serious workout & know that you are
following in your ancestors’ steps by celebrating the joy of movement!
Sound Yoga Workshop
Friday, November 26th
Jen and Vyolet are joining forces to bring you a unique and therapeutic session where we will combine sound healing with yin yoga to restore balance and harmony within the mind, body and spirit. We know that sound therapy and yoga both promote healing, but by combining the two therapies, we can help individuals integrate the energetic benefits of the session and offer faster transformation.
In our crystal singing bowl- yin yoga fusion workshop, we use the powerful force of the crystal singing bowls to stir the senses and help individuals to move beyond the physical practice so they can tune into the deepest whispers of their soul. As we breathe and stretch in the postures, we essentially open up our energy centers, our emotions and our body. Once we are open, we can release old energy, thought forms and trauma and begin to heal. The crystal singing bowls then work to project sound into the disharmonious parts of our being and correct and restore those parts back into healthy harmonic patterns. Every atom, molecule, cell, gland, and organ of the human body absorbs the sound and gets realigned. Come feel what it is like to have every cell of the body respond to the enchanting tones that are produced around you and feel your stress melting away.
Join us for this workshop and let the entire body and mind enter into a more relaxed and peaceful state of being!
Space is limited so please sign-up with through Sign-up Genius as soon as you can!
108 Sun Salutations
Tuesday, December 21st
5:30-7 PM (in lieu of Deep Stretch)
Winter Solstice is celebrated as the shortest day and the longest night of the year. For three days over this period, the sun will rise and set at the same place on the horizon, appearing to stand still. Thus, the root of the word “solstice” – “stand still of the sun.” The Winter Solstice symbolizes death and rebirth – new beginnings and fresh starts.
108 Sun Salutations is most often practiced at the start of a new season to help your brain and body refocus and reset for what the universe has coming up for you. It's a way to exhaust your body so your divine energy can connect with its source. The repetition of the sun salutation 108 times constitutes a moving meditation unlike any other. You will find that the repetitive rhythm of this practice facilitates a deep dive into the powerful, unwavering connection between mind, body, and breath. Why 108 you ask
108 is the number of “Upanishads” comprising Indian philosophy’s “Vedic texts”.
108 letters: 54 honoring Shiva, the masculine energy, and 54 for Shakti, the feminine energy.
108 is the number of names for Shiva (a Hindu god).
108 is the number of names for Buddha.
108 is the Chinese number representing “man”.
108 is the number of beads on a Catholic rosary.
108 is the number of beads on a Tibetan “mala” (prayer beads, analogous to a rosary).
108 is twice the number “54”, which is the number of sounds in Sanskrit (sacred Indian language). 108 is six times the number “18”, which is a Jewish good luck number.
108 is twelve times the number 9, which is the number of movements linked to breath in a Sun Salutation.
108 is the number of Sutras in the Yoga Sutras.
The distance between the Earth and the Sun is 108 times the diameter of the sun.
The distance between the Earth and the Moon is 108 times the diameter of the moon.
According to traditional Chinese medicine there are 108 pressure points on the body, and the Tantric system believes 108 energy channels converge at the heart chakra.
In Vedic astrology there are 12 houses and 9 planets which multiply to equal 108.
The numbers themselves are considered to have meaning: 1 represents universal consciousness or higher truth, 0 represents emptiness or completeness in spiritual practice, and 8 represents infinity.
Join Courtney, in lieu of her regularly scheduled Deep Stretch Class, to welcome in Winter and the next season of your life. You can sign up with Sign Up Genius to join her in the studio, or just join with her online via Zoom.
