Yoga & Meditating in groups is powerful. Yoga & Meditation with your family members is beautiful!! Family Yoga is so AWESOME! In a world where parents and children are so busy, family yoga provides a wonderful place to spend healthy and happy, quality time together.No mobile phones, no iPads or TV. Just you and your family and friends. You might be surprised, but that does not happen often in the 21st century. Family is so important, and time and care are needed to nurture and make it work; yoga is perfect for this.
Children, parents, and grandparents get to enjoy practicing yoga together and strengthen their bonds while they support each other and have fun. The Importance of Play in their constant struggle to juggle all of their responsibilities with the numerous things they need to do to care for their children. Parents have become policeman and policewomen. Being so busy keeping the kids safe, telling them what to do and what not to do, many parents have become way too serious! (I am exaggerating but just a bit.) So this is my favorite thing about Family Yoga: it teaches parents how to play! The most common response we hear from parents after a few Family Yoga classes is that things are different at home now, and EVERYTHING is more playful and fun! Cash Donation Class $11-20 suggested.

Breathwork for Adults and Teens
These classes happen every other week at Go Inward. Adults and Teens led separately by the fabulous Uhkärē of Breathwork Healing with Intention. Breathwork is a healing technique meant to help you meditate and relax. It gives you the opportunity to calm your nervous system and resets it.
When people practice control of their breath, the brain induces a state of calm and focus. Breathing is an unusual bodily function in that it is both involuntary and voluntary. Research suggests that the practice has multiple benefits––one is increasing the sense of well being while reducing anxiety and even improving sleep. Other major functions—take digestion and blood flow, for example—occur without conscious influence, and for the most part we couldn’t influence them if we tried.
They are involuntarily managed in the vast processing system of the unconscious mind.
Although breathing is primarily managed within the unconscious, we can grab the controls and consciously change how we breathe at any moment. For example, we can produce breaths that are shallow or deep, fast or slow, or even stop breathing altogether.
And, like most practices, there are many benefits to Breathwork. It has been proven that the breath: manages stress, manages anxiety, lowers blood pressure and heart rate, sparks brain growth, provides a deep relaxation, and helps create an outlet to express emotion, all the while remaining an active meditation technique. It is a great way to remain balanced and centered, and have fun in the process! Privates also available.

Active and Guided Meditation
What is Active and Guided Meditation?
If you mind is running fast with the hustle of life you might be turned off by practicing a traditional sitting and breathing meditation? There are many roads to Rome! Sitting still is not the only way of meditating. There are other ways to get into the zone, relax your body and rest your mind. One method is by practicing an active meditation.
You may have experienced active meditation already when practicing yoga, dancing, or lost in a creative reverie when knitting or painting. Active meditation occurs when the body is occupied with an action, usually repetitive, and the mind is focussed on completing that action. All other thoughts disappear and you feel as if you are ‘lost in time’.
The Benefits of Active Meditation
An active meditation helps you reconnect mind, body and spirit. If you’ve been feeling spaced out, scattered, not in the present, unable to focus, or experiencing jumbled thoughts, a regular active meditation practice can calm and ground you. Some active meditations are designed for rest and relaxation; others can take your consciousness to another level.
This will be a class of highly skilled & trained practitioners focusing on what they do best. Some will be guided visuals clearing the chakras and balancing the elements, some will be using pranayama, specific breathwork techniques, mantras and mudras to assist you in finding the peace and harmony within.
