Learn and discuss the energies of nature, and how they affect us according to the elements within us. This is not a fortune telling class. This class helps to understand the larger picture of what natural energies surround us. We benefit through this education to understand external and internal influences to help guide us through life both on and off of the yoga mat.
We will begin with a Yoga+Astrology Mat practice to experience Virgo and Picses in the body. After a deep relaxation, we share a star talk.
Aromatherapy and crystal healing will be used throughout the practice. Topical application of essential oils is always optional.

Join us this June for Meditation Class with Jonathan Ustun! In this one hour class, you will learn, and practice basic meditation techniques. Jon’s approach to meditation technique is beginner-friendly and light. You will have a take-home meditation practice to use in your daily life.
MEDITATION Heals: Meditation can help reduce physical and mental tension. With the body and mind more relaxed, the immune system circulates better. Direct effects on brain structure include increased size of prefrontal cortex and gray matter; EEG activity changes to more relaxation, shown by increased alpha waves, theta waves, EEG synchronicity. In other words, you will feel pretty awesome afterwards. Meditation can be an effective form of stress reduction, and has the potential to improve quality of life and decrease healthcare costs. Become a witness to the mental activity without engaging or interacting with the thoughts. Our true inner power comes when we are no longer controlled by our thoughts. We realize that the true self is not the thoughts because thoughts are simply an aspect of the mind. All levels welcome.
Jonathan Ustun first learned meditation in his teens and has practiced regularly for the last 30 years, teaching for the last 10 with the Mediation Group of Alexandria and the Gurdjieff Society of Washington. His approach is inclusive and supportive of any and all religious and spiritual practice is grounded in deep relaxation and sensation; a direct experience of one's relaxed presence in the moment. There will be some guidance as well as time for shared silence. He offers meditation sessions as a form of outreach because a group is needed to support one's experience, and this meditation group is a support for his own practice and search.
