A CALL FOR PEACE
Facilitated by Wendy Brown and Lisa Brenner
Peace is an inside job.
When we are at peace with ourselves, we find it easier to be at peace with others. Although the world may be in turmoil, we are no longer threatened. We are slow to anger. We cease to cast judgement because we understand our journey towards peace; and we understand that approaching hostility with hostility serves no one.
Aligning with the energy of peace, is aligning with love, forgiveness, and compassion. It is freedom, an acceptance of where we are, and a trust that we are being supported and guided towards that which is in our highest good.
When many come together with an intention for peace, the energy is exponential, and the entire world benefits.
Join us on Friday, March 30th as we offer our calls, our prayers, and our hearts to peace. The evening will move organically through meditation, discussion, ceremony, crystal-singing bowls, and creative expression. 7:00 – 9:30ish
This is a donation-based event to be held at the studio.
THE HUMILITY AND POWER OF CHILD’S POSE
For many of us, child’s pose is one of the first poses we encounter. We are curled like a seed towards the floor, face down, our knees pressed against our torso, our back slightly rounded as a fetus in utero.
This pose is draped in humility. It is also an acknowledgement that we are our greatest teacher.
Life is a balance of expansion and contraction, of inhales and exhales, waxing and waning moon cycles. Child’s pose beckons us away from the distractions of the world. When we allow the energy of the pose to envelope us, our focus drawing increasingly inward, we become humble witness to the great and ever-loving teacher who dwells within the bosom of stillness and silence.
MAY YOUR SILENCE AND STILLNESS BE BLESSED…
Bringing Costa Rica To Maryland
Mary is the owner of Panacea De La Montana in Costa Rica. For years she has been offering training exclusively in her retreat center. This year, Mary is coming to the States to share her immense wisdom, guidance, and instruction of yoga.
Yoga has eight limbs, although we tend to focus primarily on asana. We all breathe as part of our yoga practice, however, the importance of breath and the quality of our life, is far beyond what most traditional yoga practices offer.
I invite you to watch the video link above and meet Mary Byerly as she discusses her yoga teacher training program. Mary presents the practice with humility and grace, and seeing the light that is within all of us.
She will be facilitating two workshops during her stay in Baltimore:

Former camp participants and their parents describe camp in these words:
“My 5 year old took the Spring camp and loved it. She had a great time while learning to be more aware of her body and mind.”
“My energetic and very imaginative 5yo daughter loved yoga camp. Her energy was encouraged as well as redirected into focused positions and kindness. She already asking to go to summer camp.”
“What an amazing experience! My 6 yr old son cant stop talking about Yoga camp 🙂 Bridget has an amazing talent to teach and entertain at the same time. Will be joining her future classes for sure !”
Yoga camp helps children learn skills of self-regulation, as well as bringing focus onto the world around them and ways they can make an impact in it. Songs, dance, stories and crafts all aid in the goal of helping to create free thinking, kind, flexible and emotionally and physically strong children.
