Weekend Workshops at Treetop Yoga Studio

Add a heading (1)Join Coley Bryan to explore yoga’s warrior poses. We will examine the question “Why do we do warrior poses in a practice based on non-harming?” After a fun, energizing flow, we will analyze the alignment, anatomy and energetics of these poses, and learn how to personalize them to our individual bodies. We will also explore their history, mythology, and connection to yoga’s foundational ethics.

CBD for Pain Management, and FREE SAMPLES

I tend to get a lot of questions regarding the most effective way to manage pain. Is a topical treatment better than supplementing with the oil? Is there a certain amount I should be using? How long will it take to kick in?

Firstly I would like to note that the best way to treat pain is typically by attacking it from both sides (an external application as well as an internal application). This can be achieved by pairing a low to moderate dose of oil under the tongue in addition to applying a pain cream to the affected area. The benefits of using both oil and cream is that you will need much less of each product to achieve pain relief. Additionally, when using the oil, it enhances the effect of the topical treatment so as to make it more potent, and last much longer.

That being said, it is possible to achieve positive results by simply supplementing one or the other (the oil or the cream). The rule of thumb here is that a topical treatment will be more effective in the extremities, such as the hands, wrists, feet, knees, neck and shoulders. Alternatively, a pain cream will be less effective for pain management in the core of the body, such as the chest, gut, back, and pelvis. Therefore, for the core, supplementing the oil under the tongue would be most effective. When using just one of these methods, it is important to remember that the CBD may need to build up in your system for a few days before you start to feel relief. This means that consistency in dosing is key. Start with a moderate amount, and work your way down.

We are currently featuring two different pain creams as FREE SAMPLES, so please feel free to come down and try them out. You literally have nothing to lose!!!

magma-wideThanks to the generosity of Sarah Silfer-Swift at MAGMA, we are able to offer a free Nia class to all seniors on Cape Ann.  Previously this class was held at the Rose Baker Center but due to their limited space and the growing class numbers, we are lucky to be able to dance in this beautiful studio.  The center is accessible via elevator, see note below.

If you are a member of the Rose Baker Center, we will be keeping attendance as the center will continue to promote the class to its members.  Thanks to Rose Baker Center Director, Lucy Sheehan for helping keep Nia available to its members.

What is Nia and Why Should I Try It?

Nia is a head to toe wellness practice, with elements of dance, martial arts, yoga, and cardiovascular conditioning. We work with movements that help build core strength while honoring our body with its strengths and limitations. People think because Nia is a no impact movement form, that it is easy and not a true workout. it all depends on how you move and how intensely you use your core muscles. It can be both an incredible workout and is adaptable for those with limitations. All in the same class! Come try it if you haven’t. You will be amazed at the results.

Here is what Nia headquarters says about the practice of Nia:

Combining dance, martial arts and mindfulness, Nia tones your body while transforming your mind. More than just a workout, Nia is a holistic fitness practice addressing each aspect of your life – body, mind and soul.

We believe every person can discover, explore, unleash, and enhance their individual potential to live a healthy and meaningful life by engaging their senses and listening to their bodies.

Nia is based on the intelligent design of the body. Each workout brings mindfulness to your dance movement experience leaving you energized, mentally clear, and emotionally balanced.

Nia cardio-dance workouts combine 52 simple moves with dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts to get you fit in 60 minutes – body, mind, emotion, and spirit.

Nia is non-impact, practiced barefoot, and adaptable to individual needs and abilities. Nia classes are taught by licensed Nia teachers.

The Power of Belonging ~

The Power of Belonging ~

The Power of Belonging with Deepak Chopra 21-Day Free Meditation Program | The Path to Empowerment

The power of togetherness is a tremendous source of power and strength. When you connect with collective consciousness a major shift occurs.

True empowerment can not exist in isolation…the sense of belonging is true medicine. A network of family, friends and well wishers are important. Being in the present moment is grounding and stops us from running away from our true self to look for outside stimulation.

“Belonging to yourself” is true self-empowerment. You become free of old baggage and the desires of love and kindness are free to come through.

Living in the present, free of judgement and old hurts we belong with who we are with.
