WORKSHOPS & EVENTS
Monthly Satsang (Spiritual Talk)
Our Monthly Satsang is back after having a little break over the summer.
Satsang is a spiritual talk, it is a place where like-minded individuals come with an open mind, willingness to express themselves, or just relax and listen.
Each month a different teacher or special guest leads the Satsang, but all are encouraged to be heard if they would like to be.
Satsang is a beautiful way to build community, trust and to create a safe space. The Koi is a sanctuary for all, Satsang is always free, but if you wish to make a donation that is also welcome. Bring your mat, blankets, pillows, notebook and anything else that will make your comfortable.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR THE 1ST SUNDAY OF EVERY MONTH!
Satsang is offered in-person or live-stream, sign up is not required so if you would like to live-stream contact Gwyn @ email@example.com

WHAT IS YOGA 101
Are you curious as to what yoga actually is? Do you attend yoga classes, but still have questions as to what the heck you are doing; Why are you putting your body in these weird positions? And why does proper alignment matter moving in and out of these beautifully designed postures? Why does how I breathe matter? What is the point of listening to a teacher talk about stuff that kinda makes sense or doesn't make sense at all?
Come and learn what "real" yoga is based on, the ancient ethical guidelines - The Eight Limbs of Yoga and Vedic text. Join us and finally understand
why yogi's walk the earth differently!
"Yoga has been turned into something you can "fit in" to a busy modern lifestyle. But it came from something that was the complete opposite, and was viewed very differently to how we view yoga now".
~ Jim Mallinson, Author of the title Roots of Yoga.
This workshop is open to anyone who is ready to learn what the sacred practice of yoga is all about. Come with questions, wear something comfortable, bring a notebook and a blanket or pillow to sit on.

CANDLE LIT RESTORATIVE YOGA
Join us for a night of restorative yoga by candlelight and allow your sense of peace to deepen! Restorative Yoga is a style that uses LOTS of props - including blocks, blankets, and bolsters - aiding the body to release tension and relax fully. This practice will also be paired with optional hands on guidance giving you the ability to fall into a more calm place with ease.
Make sure to bring your mat, blanket(s), blocks, bolster (a yoga mat wrapped in a blanket will work if you don't have one), and anything else you might need to make you feel relaxed! We can't wait to see you!
Sunday, 11/13 from 7:00-8:00PM
VEDIC ASTROLOGY WORKSHOP
Vedic Astrology: Aligning with Ancient Planetary Wisdom
Vedic Astrology, Jyotish, is the astrology system of ancient India and is rooted in the philosophy and teachings of the Vedas.
The name "Jyotish" is derived from the sanskrit word “jyoti” which means “light.” Jyotish is the Traditional Indian system of astrology and a beautiful science to understand the connection of Self to the cosmic energies.
In this workshop we will discuss the differences and similarities between Jyotish (or Vedic) and Western (or Tropical) astrology, and from there begin to dive into the rich history of Jyotish, or Vedic Astrology.
We will cover the Sanskrit names for the zodiac signs, their planetary rulers, and basic symbolism. Discuss the basic attributes of each planet, the day it rules, and hear stories of the planetary Devas.
For each day of the week we will practice simple remedies to intentionally align your Self with the auspicious rhythms of the stars and planets.
Looking at a sample chart, we will see how a Vedic chart (Kundli) is drawn and interpreted, and discuss what you can expect when seeking a birth chart reading or prashna (question) reading.
Print outs of the basic material we cover will be provided with room for you to add your own notes.
**Vegan snacks and chai available after the lecture!**
Arrive dressed comfortably with an open mind.
Bring a notebook and pen/pencil, pillow/blanket to sit on,
your favorite tea to sip on.
Friday 11/18, 6:30am-8:30pm
$27. Wellness Investment
*for an additional $18, receive a hand drawn copy of your Vedic Astrology birth chart and placements, and your choice of discount on 1-on-1 reading or a prashna reading (one question answered).

BREAKING DOWN SPIRITUALITY WORKSHOP
Tarot cards, burning sage, using crystals, journaling - these, and many more, are all tools we can use to feel more in tune with our higher selves. According to the Mayo Clinic, studies have shown that involvement in spirituality is associated with better health outcomes including greater longevity, coping skills, and health-related quality of life even during terminal illness.
We don't have to use them all, or any, but in this workshop we will go over some basics, practice a few, and release any stigmas attached. Maybe a specific ritual will intrigue you enough to explore something new! No prior knowledge of these things are necessary, and is welcomed, to attend this super informative workshop.
Bring anything you need to feel comfortable, mat, pillow, blanket, etc., and a notebook and pen to take notes if you'd like. You're not going to want to miss out!
Sunday, 11/27 from 6:30-8:00PM
