Community Thai Yoga Body Work
Every Sunday- please call for details.
The Sacred Circle is a weekly gathering that has been held for the past 10 years! This circle provides an opportunity to learn how to meditate, or deepen your practice. Some stay to sharpen their skills in divination and others are following a course developed from channeled messages from the spirit realms.
Spirit Lounge- Every month or so from 6:30-11PM Spirit Lounge is a celebration for the African community that combines healing and the performing arts.
Healing includes modalities such as reiki, thai yoga massage, deep tissue massage, tarot readings, etc.
Certain months, we have tai chi and yoga mini classes with our instructors. Performances include spoken word, live music and dance to name a few. Feel free to bring your poetry or an instrument to join in!
Creativity Circle- Monthly
This circle provides the community with an opportunity to explore creative projects and do hands on work with the support of the collective. Bring your canvas, your beads, your photos, and receive feedback if desired and time to devote to plan and execute creative projects. Some participants have already identified a goal of making their art their sole source of income. Thus the circle can serve to support those who are seeking to make this courageous shift.
The first meeting will include an opportunity to share the things we’ve created in the past. So bring along any available completed works from the past.
Writer’s Circle- Monthly
Many of you have books inside of you, yearning to be birthed. Others may have a stack of pages that needs editing or feedback. In this circle, we will discuss our writing projects and ideas in order to stimulate and inspire the creation of literary works. Feel free to bring poems, short stories, and novels to read portions aloud, clarify writing strategies, and remove obstacles to the completion of works. We strive to be a safe space to explore your needs in your writing journey.

What is Thai yoga body work ?
Thai yoga body work (also known as Thai massage) is an ancient healing modality. The receiver remains relaxed (fully clothed) in resting pose, whilst the practitioner guides them through a series of Hatha yoga postures. This is done by rhythmically palming, pressing and stretching the body, using hands, knees, elbows & feet. Much of the work focuses on opening the body by creating and finding space in the joints to increase circulation & flexibility. A “dance” is created between receiver & practitioner as we flow through the session with relaxed stretching, deep back bends and fun inversions !
A sense of peace, balance & openness is often felt after a session
Each session will begin with a brief assessment of the receiver’s overall well being.
To schedule a session, please call (718) 773-3338.
This retreat is designed for practitioners who can offer a form of bodywork, or a workshop on a holistic healing modality. The gathering provides an opportunity for healers to swap skills and both give and receive treatments. There will also be mini workshops and classes in such areas as yoga, tai chi, chi gong, etc. offered by the participating healers. At our last retreat, practitioners also donated shea butter blends and, amongst the edible treats, our herbalist/midwife brought a unique herb infused sorrel drink!
