December 9th 7-9pm Goddess Groove w/ Jessica

December 9th 7-9pm Goddess Groove w/ Jessica

Goddess Groove is a pop-up dance club for women of all ages.  A safe, alcohol-free environment encourages sisterhood and support while allowing you to get back into the body and dance!  Unstructured dance allows you to express yourself to the best playlists and open up to your inner goddess.  Dress up or down, bring water, come ready to dance the night away but still get home in time for bed!  Suggested donation of $10 but open to all who need to dance. 

Jessica Yerden is a lifetime lover of music, dance, and expressing sacred femininity. She is passionate about providing a way for women to root into their bodies without the typical club scene that prevents moms and others from enjoying dance in their later years of life.  She is an advocate for living a life that sparks joy and encourages unstructured dance movement as a way to stay fluid and fit.  She is a devoted wife, mama, and yogini.

Suggested donation of $10, open to all women who need to get out and dance.

New Teacher: Free Spirits Yoga is very excited to welcome Jamie Forbes RTY-200hr

New Teacher: Free Spirits Yoga is very excited to welcome Jamie Forbes RTY-200hr

Jamie Forbes began practicing yoga close to six years as a form of exercise and to find a more natural way to help decrease anxiety and stress. She would never have thought that Yoga was going to be a way of life for her. Yoga has not only benefited her physically but also mentally and spiritually. She has found her balance in life through yoga and meditation. With everything she goes through in life, her mat is where she goes to allow herself to embrace it. Her favorite forms of Yoga are Ashtanga and Vinyasa. Yoga has combined the spiritual, mental and physical aspects of her life together so beautifully. She feels that she has a purpose in life, which is to teach Yoga to the people in the community.

Jamie is originally from Newport News, Va and now resides in High Point, NC with her beautiful children. She is a 200hr RYT, which she obtained her certification at MindBodyFitness Yoga in Greensboro, NC. The classes she enjoys teaching are Vinyasa, Slow Flow, Deep Stretch and Flow and Power Yoga. Before her journey to become a yoga teacher, Jamie had been in the healthcare profession since 2002. She feels now instead of taking care of patients in a hospital, that her purpose is to teach Yoga and give back to the community.

 

“In the beginning, it is always dark. The mind thinks (and leads us to believe) that this darkness is forever. But the body can feel the light, and as soon as it’s allowed, will always grow towards it. That is nature. That is yoga.” -Amy Jirsa, Quiet Earth Yoga

Wild Wood Tarot ~ Sun of Life Card

Wild Wood Tarot ~ Sun of Life Card

The Sun is an image of optimism and fulfilment, the dawn that follows the darkest night. As the source of all life on earth, the Sun represents the source of life itself.
— https://www.biddytarot.com/tarot-card-meanings/major-arcana/sun/

Can you feel it? See it? Even smell it in the air? That uncomfortable sense of being on the edge of something HUGE? Like you got ants in your pants? Don't know whether to sit down and shut up or go screaming out in to the street with a roady in your hand? You know what I'm talking about. Everybody is talking about it one way or another. The friction. We are getting ready to have a fire for real. The ember is about to burst into flame because we have the perfect conditions to foster and nurture it into something much bigger and more transformative. 

That's the thing about a fire. It doesn't judge what you put into it. It will burn it all up and not ask questions or make any apologies. So. My question to you is, how are you using this time? You can either learn to work with it and use it to your advantage or let it burn your damn house down. Your choice. My choice. We all have a choice. 

Lets get real. This is a very surreal time. Ha! I'm not going to get into the details but all we have to do it pay attention to all that is going on around us. 

I promise I don't have the answers but I do have alot of questions. I know that for me the stakes are higher than they have ever been. Some call it a mid life crisis, I call it coming to terms with what has been transpiring all along. It is more important than ever to commit ourselves to what we value in our lives and not allow doubt or fear to dampen our spirit. 

We are made in the image of the Creator. Do I really need to say anything else. Let me repeat that one again in case you missed it. We are made in the image of GOD. 

What are you creating in your life? It matters. Now more than ever.
