Meditation & Mindfulness
We use the word ‘yoga’ broadly. Our classes and courses are focused on cultivating vibrant physical well-being, freedom from anxiety, and a strong, flexible body and mind.
We teach hatha yoga, kundalini yoga, qigong, vinyasa yoga, yin yoga and restorative yoga. Our studio is not heated. When the weather is warm, our brightly lit studio is open onto a forested gorge, bringing in the breeze and delightful sound of birds and a waterfall. Most of our classes and courses are moderately paced, with a focus on accessibility and health, so that everyone who wishes to can participate.
The educational courses and workshops in our Radiant Living curriculum do not typically include yoga in the classrooms, though sometimes gentle movement or stretching is offered as part of an activity. Read on…
School For Radiant Living
education for a united humanity
Our ‘School For Radiant Living’ offers several programs in our Radiance Course curriculum, a private Radiance Course for couples or individuals, workshops and retreats, and a 200 hour Life Coaching Certification Program.
Our Radiant Schools curriculum is ‘Restoring Schools to Health’ in our regional school districts, and our workplace wellness programs include Radiant Living tools such as mindfulness, yoga, meditation, team development and leadership workshops for workgroups.
Radiant Warrior Yoga Courses
Two 10-week Radiant Warrior Yoga Courses begin in March:
In this course we teach a moderate Qigong and hatha yoga set that everyone can do, purifying breathwork to energize the body and Center the mind, and instinctive meditations to connect you to your inner calm. Weekly lessons from the Yoga Sutras bring your yoga off the mat and into your life.
In this transformational course you will learn to awaken and energize your mind, body and soul. This course will incorporate breathwork and poses from the practices and systems of Kundalini yoga. If you are looking for a deeper dive into your personal spiritual journey in a yoga class, this course is for you.
A radiant life is one where you are feeling connected with yourself, with healthy, uplifting relationships, living a fulfilled life rooted and awe and wonder.
Our ‘Restoring Schools to Health’ curriculum has been adapted for K-12 public and private schools. We currently lead mindfulness, yoga, and staff development workshops in several local school districts. Our two lead educators, Daniela Hess and Jeannie O’Neil have Masters degrees in Education and have been NYS K-12 certified.
