be rooted- Planting the Seed of Intention
Be Yoga Studio -1101 4th St. – Saturday, March 18th, 2017- 1:00pm

Be moved, be loved, be kind, be active, be wise…
We all crave to be more than we are. It’s our human condition- we strive, we see goals, we fail, we achieve.
But when we set goals, we attach ourselves to arriving at the outcome rather than the journey there. We focus on how our life could look rather than how it feel. This workshop is designed to let you dig deep, listen, hear the heart, plant the seeds of intention, and let them flourish and grow in the process.**Included, and not limited to: planting flowers, tea, vision boards, sunshine, meditation, exploration, heart opening, nidra, and creative expression.

Saturday, March 18, 1:00 – 4:00.

Kundalini Yoga is is called the Yoga of Awareness. It is a dynamic, powerful tool that is designed to awaken the entire system. In Kundalini Yoga we harness the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body and put them under the domain of the intention.This practice precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purifiy the blood. It brings balance to the body, mind, and soul. This is a classical kundalini style class and different from vinyasa flow. Also a great class to try for any yogi – new or not! Investment: $15

With a unique blend of rock, funk and blues styles, Eric Gales stands head and shoulders among other guitarists in his genre and is out to blow your mind and expand your musical horizons!

The Toronto singer/songwriter/guitarist, has been creating virtuosic, burning blues since his recorded debut in 1998. 12 releases and numerous awards and ecstatic accolades later, Gomes shows no signs of slowing down with his latest musical offering being his most successful to date.  The aptly-named riff-laden Electric Field Holler crackles with bare wire passion and has received highly acclaimed recognition; reaching #1 on Roots Music Report’s Blues Rock Chart, hitting #1 on ReverbNation’s Global Blues Chart and earning several nominations for Blues Rock Album of the Year.


Born and raised in St. Louis, Jeremiah Johnson is the voice of Mississippi River blues blending with the struggles of everyday life. He began learning guitar at age 6, drawing inspiration from his rich St. Louis blues heritage and legendary guitarists, like Alvin Lee, Eric Clapton and Hank Williams Sr. and Jr. With these influences, Johnson began building his musical foundation.
