Subtle Sound Bath with Ilia Stranko

Imagine being immersed in the subtle sounds of Himalayan singing bowls. These bowls are healing to your body, mind & soul.  Sound Therapy creates a deeply relaxing meditative state as it calms your central nervous system.  This class will begin with a short meditation and, as your mind settles, the sound of the bowls gently emerges and other soft sounds begin whistling by you. At times a bowl will be placed on your body, so you not only hear the sound, but you also feel the vibration of the bowls rippling through your body & soul. You will sink deeper into shavasana as your physical body and energetic body begin to realign, it’s from this place of deep relaxation that your body will receive all you need. You will leave feeling mentally calm and physically relaxed.

Reiki & Restore with Katie Cavuto

3:00 PM15:00

Reiki & Restore with Katie Cavuto

Relax and Rejuvenate in this uniquely grounding and restorative yoga class that includes hands-on Reiki treatments. 

The concept is quite simple really. Set an intention, enjoy a variety of restorative yoga poses and relax and rejuvinate as you receive hands-on Reiki treatments. 

New to Reiki? It’s a healing therapy, originating in Japan, that restores energetic alignment and balance and promotes healing on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level. 

The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei), which means “Universal Life Force,” and (Ki), which means”energy.” Practitioners act as a conduit for the healing energy, using their hands to direct energy flow, clearing and unblocking areas of stagnant energy in your body. This promotes the body’s natural healing capabilities and overall wellness. 

The group setting of this workshop allows the Reiki energy to be magnified as we are all connected. The class will begin in circle where we will set intentions for the class. This class is two hours long and it will end with a closing circle in which participants can share their experience and ask questions. Feel free to move around, stand up, leave the room, take a drink or a break as needed. 

No prior experience in yoga or Reiki is required to attend. Be sure to drink plenty of water early in the day and after the workshop as your body clears old energy it no longer needs.

Queen of Swords Embodied Tarot with Eryn Johnson

Embodied tarot yoga brings the esoteric and the mystical into your body, into your breath. The powerful archetypes of the cards become something tangible that you can feel and experience. 

This workshop will be focused around connecting with the energy of the Queen of Swords, who is here to help you find your voice. She is water and air, helping you do the deep (and difficult) internal work of boundary setting and saying no.

Channeling her energy helps you allow yourself to be seen, uncover what's blocking you from finding your voice, set healthy boundaries, and get comfortable with your own sacred no-- so that you can fully show up for the world, for your relationships, and for yourself without compromising who you are.

Reiki practitioner, tarot reader, and yoga teacher Eryn Johnson will lead you through meditation, chanting, journaling exercises (including a tarot spread), breathwork, and an all-levels yoga flow with a long savasana where each individual will receive a few minutes of Reiki healing.

All levels of experience in yoga and tarot are welcome! Bring a journal, a yoga mat, and your tarot cards if you'd like.

Healing Sound Bath with Baba Doc

We are so lucky to have Baba Doc at MWJ! Following his highly successful musical career of national, international touring, and recording as lead percussionist in the bands of high profile vocalists including Al Jarreau, Anita Baker, Dianne Reeves, Rickie Lee Jones,and Erykah Badu, and being a key musician in the rhythm sections of bands including those of Grover Washington Jr., Bob James, Wyclef Jean and many others. Master drummer and percussionist Baba Doc Gibbs heard a new rhythm. New directions called to Baba Doc, and he combined his multitude of experiences into a program of healing groups and individuals through sound. This was an easy and natural transition for him.

Realizing the importance of healing with sound frequencies, Baba Doc created the Healing Sound Bath, using a variety of percussion instruments, each with a unique voice and energy to create an experience that promotes relaxation, stress relief, healing, breathing, and balances both hemispheres of the brain.

Participants experience the soothing energy of gongs, cymbals, and meditation bells. Baba Doc provides additional colors and feelings to the experience as he plays his ocean drum, rain stick, kamale ngoni, the hand pan among others instruments.

Baba Doc’s Healing Sound Bath provides relief from daily stress, and provides deep relaxation. It releases negative energy and emotions, helps reconnect mind, body and spirit, and assist in recovery after illness.

Autumn Āyurveda Workshop

Introduction to Āyurveda and Ways to Balance in the Fall and Winter

The medicine is the truth of you. One of the simplest ways to protect your wellbeing is by balancing your lifestyle and food choices with the environment around you. In doing so, it enables us to avoid seasonally induced imbalances in our bodies and minds. Come learn about yoga’s sister science, Āyurveda—the oldest continually practiced health care system in the world—and how to promote balance by using its principles. The first half of this three-hour workshop will introduce the fundamentals of Āyurveda including how to identify the five elements in your food, in the environment and in your own unique constitution. The second half will outline tools to stay balanced in the Fall and Winter. We will learn how to stay in rhythm with nature through a daily Āyurvedic routine and seasonal meal planning. You will leave equipped with accessible and systematic ways of balancing yourself. No prior experience of Āyurveda or yoga necessary, all are welcome.

 About the presenterLiz Fullerton is an Āyurvedic Health Counselor, certified by the Kripalu School of Āyurveda. She is a Registered Nurse dedicated to reproductive justice and is currently becoming an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). In addition to teaching Āyurveda, Liz is launching an integrative practice, Ofrenda Āyurveda, which offers in-home Āyurvedic support and cooking for people/families during their postpartum, post-abortion and post-pregnancy loss times. She is a labor doula and a musician working and living in Philadelphia. The Āyurvedic definition of health in Sanskrit is ‘Swastha’, which means to be seated in one’s self. Liz believes that through Āyurveda you will be brought closer to your own nature and unique understanding of health.

MWJ Anniversary Party Henna with Cindi Ruka!

MWJ Anniversary Party Henna with Cindi Ruka!

Join us for our 6th year anniversary with very special guest, Henna artist, Cindi Ruka!

Henna is a form of body art from Ancient India, in which designs are created on the body, using a paste, made by Cindi, the powdered dry leaves of the henna plant. Ancient in origin, henna is still a popular form of body art among the women of the Indian Subcontinent, Africa and the Middle East.

Henna is derived from the Sanskrit word mendhikā. The use of henna and turmeric is described in the earliest Hindu Vedic ritual books.  Staining oneself with henna is a Vedic custom, intended to be a symbolic representation of the outer and the inner sun. Vedic customs are centered on the idea of "awakening the inner light". Traditional Indian designs are representations of the sun and other important symbols in nature.

Cindi applies henna paste on the skin using a plastic cone. After about 15–20 minutes, the mud will dry and begin to crack, and during this time, a mixture of lemon juice and  sugar is applied over the henna design to remoisten the henna mud so that the henna will stain darker. The painted area can be wrapped to lock in body heat, creating a more intense color on the skin. When you first remove the henna, it is usually pale orange in color, and gradually darkens through oxidation, over the course of 24 to 72 hours. The final color is reddish brown and can last anywhere from one to three weeks. Moisturizing with natural oils, such as olive, sesame seed, or coconut, will also help extend the lifetime of the stain. Skin exfoliation causes the henna tattoo to fade quicker.

Select appointments will be available between 3-7pm on Oct 6th.

20 minute sessions each at $36

Harvest Moon Meditation with Sarah Hummel

The Harvest moon is a time to be productive yet independent in your endeavors.  It's a moon that calls our solo efforts to the forefront, to work separate from the pack, free from the influence of mainstream expectations.  It asks you to get down to the nitty gritty and be precise and strategic in your plan, even if it goes against the grain and isn't the most popular direction.  A perfect time to join forces with the independent powers of those around us, willing to pave the way and pioneer a new path to travel.  In this meditation we will maintain our autonomous seat while simultaneously merging with the group, with no difference between them.  


"A very delicate and sublime sensitivity will be developed in this process. The effect is that you are multiplied by the total number of people participating plus twice the number squared. This number times each meditative repetition, equals the effect. This means the effect of a few hundred thousand repetitions can be achieved in a moderate size group in a short time."  -Yogi Bhajan

A Full Moon Space Jam: Kundalini Yoga & Meditation with Gong Immersion

Come explore new realms of consciousness! We gather in gratitude & reverance of the great Master Yogi Bhajan, to celebrate his birth and to practice the technology of awareness that he gifted us. This year's Bday happens to fall on the August Full Moon, a time that the Dakota Sioux people call the Time to Ripen and a day that the Farmer's Almanac says is particularly abundant for fisherman. As energy hunters on a path to Self-Discovery and true Awareness, this evening is hugely auspicious and important to honor, cultivate, meditate & gather with intention.  Led by the teachings of Yogi Bhajan himself, we will use this time of emotional vibrancy & alertness to amplify the positivity, brighten & manifest our dreams, and project ourselves to a vibrant, uplifted state of being.  YOU CAN NOT AFFORD TO MISS THIS OPEN PORTAL OPPORTUNITY!

Subtle Sound Bath with Ilia Stranko

Imagine being immersed in the subtle sounds of Himalayan singing bowls. These bowls are healing to your body, mind & soul.  Sound Therapy creates a deeply relaxing meditative state as it calms your central nervous system.  This class will begin with a short meditation and, as your mind settles, the sound of the bowls gently emerges and other soft sounds begin whistling by you. At times a bowl will be placed on your body, so you not only hear the sound, but you also feel the vibration of the bowls rippling through your body & soul. You will sink deeper into shavasana as your physical body and energetic body begin to realign, it’s from this place of deep relaxation that your body will receive all you need. You will leave feeling mentally calm and physically relaxed.
