Next HypnoBirthing® Class Beginning in April with Sadie Kneidel
is a birthing philosophy based on profound mental and physical relaxation. Mothers and their birth companions learn cues and techniques to induce a calm, confident state, in which they are free of fear and tension. Research (http://www.hypnobirthing.co.uk/hypnosis_in_childbirth_research.shtml
) indicates that HypnoBirthing®
women experience lower rates of pain medication, interventions, surgery, and long hospital stays.
In addition to being a certified HypnoBirthing® practitoner, Sadie Kneidel has a master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. With a bachelor's degree in Women's Studies and Spanish Language, she offers bilingual services and is trained to work sensitively with issues of sex and gender. In addition, Sadie is a certified yoga instructor, having completed Free Spirits Yoga's 200-hour Road to Self Teacher Training & Healing Quest. Finally, she holds a reiki II certificate and is also an ordained ceremonial officiant through Light & Energy Workers Association.
She has been teaching HypnoBirthing® since the life-changing birth of her son at Women's Birth and Wellness Center, in Chapel Hill, NC.
The HypnoBirthing® Institute recommends a cost of $300 per couple for 5 2.5-hour group classes. However, I am committed to making the classes available to anyone who needs them. If this price is prohibitive to you, a need-based sliding scale is available. Private classes are available upon request for a negotiable fee. For more info, check out www.greensborohypnobirthing.com.
Classes will meet Sundays from 4-6:30pm
April 19th and 26th, May 3rd, 10th and 17th.
">Yoga Photo of the Month:
Meditation in Siddasna
Amy teaches Spirit Vinayasa on Fridays from 9:30-10:30am
The Perfect Posture (whose original Indian name is Siddhasana) in Yoga is suitable for improving a person's concentration. It is a posture, next in importance to the Lotus Posture (Padmasana or Kamalasana), recommended for meditation (Dhyana) and for chanting mantras (Japa).
Note that Siddha means a Semi-divine Being with great sanctity. This posture gets its name because the person performing this pose attempts to emulate a sage who is perfect, a prophet who is accomplished, or a seer who is adept.

"Road to Self" 2015 Yoga Teacher Training and Healing Quest
We are so excited to be offering our third session of the Road to Self 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training and Healing Quest beginning March 2015. This program will be a full immersion into a deeper understanding of yoga as well as Ourselves. Although the program will be deeply founded in the traditional practices and philosophies of yoga, we will also be exploring our personal practice through the teachings from Indigenous and Shamanic Wisdom. Students in this program will learn safe, fun and intuitive ways to share the Holy Science of Yoga by deepening their own personal practice. Our goal is to cultivate a fun, compassionate, dogma free environment to teach and practice safely, successfully and compassionately.
Students will meet once a month for nine months beginning in March 2015. See below for weekend dates. We have developed a uniquely tailored program that cultivates each individual's unique gifts to be shared with group and community through the Traditional Science of Yoga, Shamanic Practices and the Magic of Healing Circles. Deepening, understanding and healing our local and global community is at the heart of this program. Understanding that each student is also a contributor and without the input, participation and financial backing the program wouldn't be possible.
However, you do not have to be a teacher or even desire to become a teacher to participate in this unique and exciting journey to the Self. One must only have the authentic desire to dive deeply into the sea of Truth and wish to learn a sacred and beautiful way to assist others in doing the same.
Beginning March 2015 - 1 weekend a month for 9 months
$1350/$150 per weekend or $1200 for those that wish to pay prior to the beginning the program and would also waive the registration fee.
* $150/weekend - Friday evenings 6-9pm (students meeting at Audreys home for Ceremonial Fire most Friday evenings) / Saturdays 2-8pm & Sundays from 9-5pm
Pre-registration required with $40 registration fee unless tuition paid in Full by February 15th 2015.
200 total contact hours - 240 hr total with outside assignments. Once registration is complete students will receive a reading list and first weekend schedule.
***Students are responsible for all payments of all weekends even if the weekend is missed. Prior communication with program director Audrey MacNamara Sheldon recommended in special circumstances so that a plan to cover what has been missed is developed.

">Shamanic Yoga Workshop Series w/ Audrey Sheldon
Building Your Shamanic Tool Kit
Through the combination of Shamanism and Yoga we find a path that is heart-centered, grounded in our connection to the earth, as well as full of light and direct Self Knowledge; a way to develop our relationship to all of creation through a deeper understanding of physical, mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual aspects of ourselves; a way to honor the light and the shadow. We not only learn to still the mind and withdraw the senses in compassionate non-attachment, but also to explore the spiritual realms of our dreams to access truths personal and sacred. This is a practice of rediscovering all that makes us whole, content and healthy.
Also as Shamanic Yogis we are developing the ability to heal ourselves and our community with the tools that we develop from our own personal experience. In this workshop series students will develop useful tools and skill to build on their ability to heal themselves and share this powerful healing with those around them. All Workshops are held from 2-8pm on the last Saturday of the month
Each workshop is $60 fee Saturday February 28th - Developing Relationship with All of Creation
In this segment of the Shamanic Tool Kit Workshop series students will learn the importance of developing a relationship with all aspect of life. Shamanism honors all and learns from all. Students will learn how to use tools such as medicine walk, creation ceremony and abundance ceremony to come into right relationship with all that Source has created. Saturday March 28th - Sacred Movement and Practices of Awareness
In this segment students will learn how to heal through movement and stillness. Our ability to journey into the deepest parts of ourselves to unlock hidden blockages through the use of our breath, body and soul centered movement to heal and balance all aspects: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual for healing and wholeness. Saturday April 25th - Medicine Objects and Creation Ceremony
In this segment students will learn the importance of personal medicine objects and how to work with them to create powerful, balanced and grounded healing in ourselves and others. Tapping into our creativity is a powerful key to magical changes in our lives. We learn to breathe life into the objects around us. Saturday May 30th - Birth, Death & Rebirth
In this final segment of the series students will learn the power of birth, death and rebirth. Honoring the cycles of life to allow for all aspects to come into total and complete balance in the physical and spirit worlds. Learning that no light may be present without shadow.
