PLEASE NOTE: We have expanded our schedule this month so as to accommodate asana from 6:25-10:00am (details below)! We have also added a new 5-class Punch Card. You must pre-register to join…
Got Yoga? Sauna? Ceremony? Creativity? We do! Start each day the Jen-Mitsuke and Jiyu way! 😉 We invite you to join us each and every day in November for Soulful Morning Sadhana at our extremely well-appointed and pleasant home studio in Denver. We encourage you to undertake a diverse and individually-appropriate practice that helps to ground you and serve that which is most meaningful to you in life.
- 5:55am–Doors Open
- 6:00am–Meditation & Puja / Ceremony
- 6:25am–Creative Free-Time (or Asana if necessary)
- 7:15am–Ashtanga Vinyasa Invocations
- 9:45am–Group Savasana & Closing Chant
- 10:00am–Tea with Friends
- 10:15am–Bring Your Best Self Out Into the World!
Feel free to include kriya, pranayama, meditation, strengthening exercises, preps with props and restoratives in your Trauma Informed Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga routines! We have a plethora of specialized equipment for your enjoyment and encourage a non-competitive, relaxed, loving and therapeutic attitude. Need help tailoring your personal practice or incorporating additional creative or healing elements? Set up a private session with Jen!
Creative Hour (6-7am) will consist of a brief neuroplasticity-stimulating meditation for happiness and resilience followed by puja, chanting and drumming/rattling led by Jen. You will then have about 35 minutes (or more if you are not in a hurry to begin yoga) to engage in personal journaling, dream analysis, divination, artwork, and/or movement exploration as you see fit.
We have a variety of animal, tarot and archetype card decks as well as very simple crayons, pencils, markers and play-doh, but you may also wish to bring your own tools for enticing Psyche to share her rich gifts. (For example, Jen loves to write stream-of-consciousness, practice Authentic Movement, play with rocks, do Active Imagination with items from Nature, draw on her iPad and cut up magazines, etc… If you aren’t yet convinced, don’t worry, inspiration will come!)
You may attend whatever times work for you, but in order to retain a sacred and restful atmosphere, please refrain from arriving or departing during ceremony or group savasana (6:00-6:25am or 9:45-10:00am). You are welcome to do creative work during yoga time or yoga during creative free time if your schedule does not permit staying the full morning. 45-minute IR sauna sessions can usually be booked (at least 24 hours in advance) as early as 5:30am and finishing as late as 10:45am.
Because we are looking to foster a sense of regularity and support in community we are not able to offer drop-ins. We offer monthly memberships or multi-packs expiring the month of issue. Our friends from out of town or locals looking for a retreat may purchase week-long memberships on a space-available basis. We will be a group of 10 or less.
Please note, PRACTICE WILL END EARLY (at 7:30am) on the following days due to Jen’s shamanic training: Thursday 11/07, Saturday 11/09, Sunday 11/10, Thursday 11/14, Thursday 11/21, and Wednesday 11/27. We will have a full practice on Thanksgiving! We celebrate moon days by practicing 😉
Jen will lead the chanting, puja, drumming/rattling & meditation each day. Additionally, she will teach TIAVY self-practice from 8:00-10:00am on Sundays (November 3, 17 and 24). At other times Jiyu is there to supervise as Jen practices beside you. Contact Jen with questions!
