To Reclaim Peace

Welcome!

Do you struggle with tension, anxiety, depression? Do you have sleep issues like insomnia, or chronic pain? Have you been diagnosed with complex post traumatic stress?

Has your doctor recommended yoga or meditation?

This is a gentle place to start.

It is with great care and love that, starting today, we have temporarily closed the yoga studio to in-person events.

We always do our very best for the health of our community and we are grateful to you for supporting the studio as we create a path forward that feels true. What an opportunity to practice Yoga right in this moment!

Meditation, rest and relaxation are never more appropriate than right now.

Deep Relaxation-based Restorative Yoga and simple meditation, perfect for all levels. No experience necessary.

$15.50

DOWNLOAD http://www.zoom.us (it’s free!). You will be sent a link by email before the event to join the meeting room. It is that simple!  💙💚💙

Because at this time we do not know how long we will be affected, and to respect the CDC’s recommendations for social distancing, yoga therapy clients and group classes will meet as scheduled via www.zoom.us. There will be no postponements of yoga therapy at this time. Thank you for your compassion, understanding and support. We are all in this together!
 
Please prepare for our session by finding a quiet place to practice (your bedroom and even your bed is fine); gathering blankets, towels, pillows, sheets and anything else you’d like to make yourself comfortable in poses (remember the benefit of weighted blankets, so grab a lot of blankets if you can!); put on your comfy clothes (jammies are fine! Natural fibers are best. Include socks and an eye mask or eye pillow); get a cup of tea and be ready for a nice experience. Please set up your device so that I can see you breathe, including at least your face and chest – the entire torso is preferable. Use whatever you need as a tripod if you are using your phone – books and the wall work great! 
 

Your continued support is paramount at this time – for yourselves, for small local businesses and for each other. Keep coming to class online, gifting classes, commenting and liking and sharing on Facebook (like here) and Instagram so that we can continue offering supportive rest, peace and calmness.

Are you seeking safe complements or alternatives to traditional medicine without medication?

Yoga Therapy and meditation help people remember their natural state: joy, calmness and peace. Move from struggle to surrender, inner quiet and the stillness of peace.

Restorative yoga is especially gentle and can be safely practiced. It is a self-reflection process and a practice of surrender, of letting go.

Finding a qualified teacher is very important. Brooke West is a Certified Yoga Therapist, a Registered Yoga Teacher and a Certified Meditation Teacher.

Ancient Yogic practices are confirmed by modern science as sound and wise. Yoga helps us to cultivate personal awareness, reminds us how to be good people and expands our spiritual potential best through relaxation.

Yoga therapy is relevant to those whom have had a spiritual realization due to serious experiences, including but not limited to severe trauma; near-death or death witnessing; use of plant medicine, psychedelics and entheogens; transformative psychosis states; and other non-ordinary states of consciousness. Realizing our true nature and learning to live life happily is the reason Yoga remains a part of our culture. Yoga brings happiness and peace to the fore by releasing patterns and habits that block our true nature. Our true nature is joy, forgiveness and neutrality. By training our mind to seek inwardly, meditation reinforces right action and cultivates harmony, compassion and patience. Our outer life and our inner life are intimately connected.

“I feel better.” –E. Cavassa

“She is a true healer.” –Nancy Walker, Director of The Wellness Kitchen, Templeton

“I felt the effects of a single class for two weeks.” -C. Portin

“Brooke is a mystic who inspires people to look within themselves. She leads people to a higher state of consciousness.”  J. G. van Buerden.

A personal note from Brooke:

I help people recognize their innate healing resources. My clients transform their lives by attunement with their own sense of inner wisdom, spirituality and integrity.

I am a trauma survivor who boldly proclaims that Yoga changed my life, my body and my mind, and that Yoga can do the same for you.

Self-regulation is possible and is the best kind of lifestyle management.

Traumatic stress, anxiety, depression and other types of dysregulation can be balanced without medications or in concert with them. With practice, profound inner shifts renew one’s engagement with life, refreshing one’s attitude and energy. Spiritual emergence and emergency can become comfortable, enjoyable, informative and integrative.

Control and power over our lives are reinstated by learning to direct our energy in positive ways. We can shift mood, body temperature, identification with pain and more at will.

The emphasis in Yoga therapy is on wellness; compassionate self-care; healthy, purposeful, conscious living and personal Yoga and meditation practices.

Raja Yoga (meditation), yamaniyamas (ethical principles), Hatha Yoga (exercise), Yoga nidra (relaxed stillness between wakefulness and sleep), and Ayurveda (wholesome living) return practitioners to peace.
