Summer Solstice at the Gables: Yoga and Midsummer Magic 2019

Join Rebel Yell Yoga and The Chaos Factor for another amazing Summer Solstice filled with yoga, herbalism, and magick on the ocean lawn of the historic House of the Seven Gables in Salem, MA! (indoor rain space available). Our sister Kris (of Dark Moon Tarot) will be traveling but there in spirit!

Summer solstice, or Midsummer, is the longest day, and most fertile time of year. Fruition, fulfilment, and consciousness awaken. With the sun at its zenith, and on the heels of a full moon in Sagittarius, we will align our personal zeniths of power, manifestation, and self-awareness with the elements, while dancing between the earth and sky under a nearly full rising moon.

This workshop includes a warming blend of solar and lunar flow vinyasa, honoring the fiery forces of the sun and the full moon, and will segue into meditation within sacred circle. In circle we will tap into our inner hedge witches and work with a variation of the Midsummer 9 herb charm. The ancient Anglo-Saxon 9 herb charm is made up of an incantation and collection of sacred herbs traditionally thrown on the midsummer bonfires to encourage protection, cultivate growth, and to foster healing. Become rooted in your power to heal, grow, and expand outward!

Cost: $40

Namaste and Blessed Be!

***We we ask that all attendees be prepared to participate in the entire 90 minute event. Refunds are not available the day of the event because of the prep work that is involved. Additionally, a portion of your investment will be donated to the House of the Seven Gables, as a charitable donation. Thanks for your cooperation!

Please bring a mat, water, and any props you may need for yoga. You may also bring any offerings for the solstice altar. Please arrive approximately 15 minutes prior to class starting.

New Moon in Aries: Yin Yoga, Tarot, and Tea.
Apr

7:00 PM19:00

New Moon in Aries: Yin Yoga, Tarot, and Tea.

Join Rebel Yell Yoga, the Chaos Factor and Dark Moon Tarot for new moon intention setting through yoga, tarot, and herbalism. Spring arrives and the moon shifts into Aries to align with the sun. It is time to activate and renew.

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures (asana) that are held for longer periods of time (1-5 minutes). The poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. It literally awakens your body! Yin yoga is also very meditative and aims at cultivating awareness of self, inner peace, and connectedness to the universe.

There is a profound link between Tarot & Yoga, as they both bridge the gap between the conscious and subconscious. Following a guided savasana that will put you on the path to yoga nidra (yogic sleep), we will sit in circle and sip a cleansing and intuition boosting herbal tea made by the Chaos Factor. Using Tarot as a tool, you will be guided in a group Tarot reading to awaken your own personal intuition and receive guidance with Dark Moon Tarot.

Please bring a yoga mat AND a blanket to roll up and use as a prop during this practice (these will not be provided). Additionally, please bring tarot decks and a journal if you like. We will be burning herbal incense, smudges, and palo santo during class and circle.

Namaste and Blessed Be!

Samhain Savasana

Samhain Savasana

The energy of Salem and the surrounding areas in October is high vibe and intense. Take the time to decompress with this one hour restorative yoga class with Chrissy of @rebelyellyoga. Samhain celebrates the last harvest of the growing season and includes gentle and relaxing yoga poses designed to let your mind wander through a guided meditation focusing on the seasonal vibrations of Samhain. Samhain is the traditional celtic "final harvest" known here as Halloween. You do NOT need to be a witch, a pagan, a buddhist, or even a and advanced yogi to come to this class. It is open to all and the themes of harvesting, turning inward, and honoring our ancestors ring true for all of us. We will focus on the connection between our mind, body, and spirit as a sangha, the community of practice, and while the veil between worlds is thin, uncover illumined knowledge to cultivate during the darkness of winter to last us to the rebirth of spring in all her glory.

Small bottle of black viola flower essence included with class. Black viola is especially powerful during times of closure and when shifts in energy are occurring. Samhain is such a time.

$30

*Registration is required at least 24 hours in advance. A head count for the Samhain spray is needed.

Halloween Full Hunters Moon

Halloween Full Hunters Moon

Celebrate the lunar energy of the full Hunter’s moon on the cusp of Samhain--the Celtic celebration of the dead. The final harvest, known here as Halloween, focuses on reverence for our ancestors, and for mother earth as she provides her last bounty before her winter’s rest.This full moon, in Aries, asks us to harvest the energy from our inner selves as we release what no longer serves us during the final Halloween harvest. What old ancestral wounds can heal by harvesting our own inner strength? What new paths can we manifest as the growing cycle comes to completion and and we pass into the new agricultural year?
Halloween Full Moon spell bags will be crafted in class during a meditation circle. Herbs, stones, and personal power will come together to aid our personal self-healing and release.

Investment of $35
