Celebrate Your Year

We spend a great deal of time looking forward.  This year, let's take time to reflect & celebrate how far you've come.  Acknowleding your successes helps you appreciate who you are, who you are becoming, and gives you the motivation, bandwidth and confidence to take your current intentions to the next level.  In this end of year reflection, you will leave with a sense of celebration for your growth, and an action plan to end the year in a way that feels inspiring, and aligned with your highest good.

Empower Your Life: Discover Your Values

Satnam Yoga 

Chicago IL

Join me for a talk and experiential evening about the life-giving power of living according to our values, meditation, and activity designed to help people tap into their personal values system.  

As humans we are driven intrinsically by our values.  To the degree that our values are present in our daily life, we feel alive, have more energy, feel more resilient to taking on life’s challenges, and can make decisions more easily.  When our values are not present in our lives, we might feel stuck, like something is off, or a feeling of not quite being our best self.  In this workshop, we will use yoga asana, guided meditation, and principles of life-coaching to tap into the wisdom of our bodies and minds and unearth your values.  You will leave with a clearer understanding of your values, and how to bring them more fully into your life.

Smudging Ceremony

Yogaview 

Chicago IL

Kristin Urbanus & Michael Taylor

Join us for an evening of yoga, drumming, ritual, and free-form movement.

As we approach the holiday season, we enter a time of abundance and celebration. However, this can also feel taxing as we are often times pulled in many directions. This evening provides a time to connect to simplicity as we move our bodies in a fluid and grounded way that frees up energy. We will partake in a smudging ceremony which invites elements of cleansing into our mind, body and psyche. This ceremony is used by Native Americans and other indigenous people with the purity of the elements: air, water, earth, and fire. We will set an intention that we intend to carry with us through the month ahead.

Entrainment: West African Drum Meets Vinyasa Flow

Moksha Yoga Center

Chicago IL

Kristin Urbanus, Rachel Sherron, & Michael Taylor 

Entrainment is the process of syncing the physical, emotional, and energetic systems of our bodies so that we can vibrate on a frequency of coherency and our lives can flow with ease and effortlessness. When we are in sync with ourselves, we can begin the natural process of entraining, connecting more deeply and harmoniously with those around us. Join Kristin, Rachel, and Michael for a culturally eclectic evening of West African drumming, yoga asana, essential oils, dance, and chanting that will raise your energy and vibrations, bringing you into alignment with the earth, your natural rhythm, divine truth, and your highest self.
