Madonna Institute. Thoroughly trained in classical Ayurveda, in addition to supplemental training in Restorative Yoga and Yoga through the Ayurvedic lens, she specializes in Preventative Health and offers educational programs here at The Bhaktishop like none other; comprehensive, illuminating, and life-altering.

class cards and drop in welcome

Ayurveda believes that the heart and the mind are deeply interconnected, and learning to soften and still both through soothing breathing practices with natural focus can be powerful medicine and important self-care especially in our very busy, modern world. It’s easy to not notice all of the stress and tension our bodies can hold. And when the body is tense, the mind is tense, which makes it very difficult to find ease in comfort within. Join Danielle as she guides you through a soothing and relaxing meditation while laying in a deeply supported savasana. Experience a more restful and healing state of balance as we weave the breath through the body to soften and release held tension; these classes are a wonderful gift to yourself. All levels welcome.

Ayurveda and Seasonal Wellness: Attuning to Autumn with Danielle

 September 25th, 3-6pm

With Fall swirling her way in, she brings many delights. Beautiful crisp blue skies, electra-colored leaves floating through the air and amazing fruits and veggies calling to be roasted and savored. The natural energy of the season can be so full of beauty and it can also leave us feeling un-tethered, unfocused and stressed. It is a time to take the cues from Nature to ground down more fully and prepare for the quieter months of winter. Join us for an afternoon of exploring the preventative health practices of Ayurveda to support a more stable, balanced season, including a slow, gentle restorative practice to ground and support your mind and body.

Ayurveda is the "Science of Life," and the sister science of Yoga. It is the ancient, healing art of living in balance, health and wellness through simple daily practices and rituals that have been used for thousands of years. By incorporating a few changes in lifestyle and eating habits that are aligned with your inherent nature, radical shift can happen.  Explore the deeper relationship of self-care, attuning and connection within.
