Be Moved Studio and Moon Jewel Ayurveda are pleased to offer~ 10 Days of Intention~ An Ayurvedic Reset for Body Mind and Spirit is an opportunity to begin the year with loving attention .
As we begin to witness the light return after the dark night of Winter Solstice, we too must take time to pause and rest in order to be ready for the awakening of Springtime. This pause does not have to equal heaviness. We can invite lightness back into our lives by resetting our practices and rituals. This offering honors the season of rest through diet, lifestyle, and herbal support. We will practice Ritucharya (seasonal regimen) and Dinacharya (daily regimen) to support our well-being in this season. By setting these intentions now, we assist in keeping toxins from accumulating in the deeper tissues of both body and mind. The more we can lighten the toxic load, the more ease our bodies have in metabolizing food into energy, and the sensory into harmony.
This is for you. Your timing, your home, your way. Start anytime. Once you register you will receive the eBook and a small package will be mailed to you (or available for pickup for locals). You will have the opportunity to read through the eBook, make a grocery list and shop before starting your Reset.
Included in this reset:
laura m.e. has been teaching and practicing Ayurveda for almost 20 years and owns Moon Jewel Ayurveda, the premier Ayurveda center in the Plains states offering consultations, Ayurvedic therapies and Panchakarma.
Registration begins Dec. 18.
Start date is Jan 1 thru end of Feb

Yoga is inherently a trauma-informed practice. Through philosophy and culture the practice of turning inward, toward the true self, can not only help ease the mind but also support the nervous system and body to heal from the stress and trauma we encounter in the world. Trauma-informed yoga practice provides safe and gentle approaches to movement, breathing, and mindfulness. Those who have experienced any range of trauma can benefit from this work. As yoga teachers and bodywork providers, it is essential to come into your teaching space with a trauma-informed lens, though it is often a missed lesson in teacher training. If we truly want to share and express the benefits and goals of yoga, we must learn to foster safety, agency, confidence, and self-regulation techniques for all our students.
During this two-hour workshop, Trauma Informed provider, Mariel Ferreiro, will provide a lecture, discussion theory, and practice with a trauma and care-centered lens.
You will gain knowledge and experience:
Though this training is centered around the philosophy and practice of Yoga, this can be utilized in all aspects of bodywork as Mariel brings much of her Yoga practice into her other bodywork modalities. All teachers, learners, and healing-centered providers are welcomed. (you need not be a yoga teacher to benefit from this workshop)
Please note this will not count as full trauma-informed teacher training but rather give you a view into the practice and tools you can begin to implement in your teaching.
“Meet this transient world with neither grasping nor fear, trust the unfolding of life, and you will attain true serenity.” -Bhagavad Gita

Ayurveda is all about bringing balance in a world that continues to change. It is recognizing that my balance is not the same as yours. The goal here is to find the perfect balance for your unique blend of doshas, your nature, your perfume or essence that is unlike anyone else alive. This is a 5000 year old system that recognizes the inherent healer in each of us. This class will allow us to take the first few steps to recognize our path toward balance.
This will be a hands-on interactive class as we learn to see ourselves from an Ayurvedic perspective, recognize what qualities brings us out of balance and learn some rituals to enhance our mental/nervous system digestion. All are welcome to attend. Come sample some Ayurvedic teas and snacks!

“In modern times, the term “shapeshifting” has been all but lost. More often than not we inhabit the shadow side of the shapeshifter either trying to be invisible or trying to be somebody else. This happens when, instead of having faith in the fluidity of our own persona, we try to fix ourselves in an idea of who we are. And when we can’t come up with a good idea, we imitate somebody else’s. The trick is to identify with the shifting, not the shape, the process, not the product.” ~Gabrielle Roth
Dear Sisters, the circle has opened…Take our hands and join our circle of women dedicated to the journey of wild abandon and holy ecstasy~ We dive deep to the realms of intuitive, visceral and instinctual movement to invite and invoke our deepest healing essence as we move our bodies in our shapeshifting beauty, wisdom and power. I look forward to being with you again in all your vulnerability and authenticity.
I hope you will join us on this monthly journey surrendering to the sacred shapeshifter from the body, through the heart, releasing the mind, freeing the soul and meeting spirit on the dance floor. We will find our fluid nature that guides us through light and shadows and reveals the beauty of our own power and vulnerability. We will surrender to our own authenticity again and again as we offer ourselves to the dance.
The 5Rhythms® are a path into the self ~ a spelunking service to the inner caves and crevices within the body so that we can dive in and come out onto the other side.
As we move through the 5Rhythms we may meet the unfamiliar, uncomfortable in one moment and find ourselves seamlessly sliding into home in the next beat. We might meet our inner judge in one rhythm and then dissolve into breath and bone in another. And then we dance again and again with curiosity and willingness to show up with whatever we got and allow it to change as we move.
Last Sundays April 28-Aug 25 1:30-4:30

Delivering one’s self back to the artistic nature of the body.
Sculpting spirit into shape,
Writing soul into story,
Dancing mind into the wind and tracing the heart home.

Join us in this poetic landscape as we come together to nourish ourselves and each other, creating an ensemble rooted in aliveness, returning to wonder and recharging possibility.
The 5Rhythms are an art form. Application and vision are one and the same from an artistic perspective, both evoking creative expansion which is at the root of our practice. The beauty of the 5Rhythms from a theatre perspective is, that we have the opportunity to mirror life, absorbing every morsel of its offerings and giving it all back to the dance over and over again.
In living this practice we embody all the rhythms through every breath we take, through every offering we make. Each gesture being an extension from our body, heart, mind, soul and spirit. A poetic landscape of offering. A free fall, a footfall, a live response to what is happening in us, around us and universally.
We as artists manifest change, offering ourselves and our stories from that deep live wire place inside each of us. A vulnerable electric landscape of unpredictable possibility that lives and breathes inside our bones helping others feel deeply, truthfully, with faith, humor, love and trust.

with TRE provider Mariel Ferreiro
Trauma/Tension Release Exercises, commonly known as TRE, is a practice created by David Berceli, Ph.D. “TRE is an innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma.” (Berceli). By utilizing these low impact movements along with self-regulation techniques, individuals can activate a safe natural reflex mechanism of shaking, often called a neurogenic tremor. The provider will guide you through the exercises while maintaining a safe and controlled environment allowing you to tremor or shake out existing muscular tension.
Practioners are invited to a bi-monlth group shake. We will gather together to go through Dr. Berceli’s seven exercise sequence, explore our body’s natural tremor, and learn this great self-help tool to better manage daily stress and trauma. TRE group shake will be held on the first and third Saturdays of the month.
TRE is for all and we will accommodate and make it accessible as much as possible.

Come sing with us! Kirtan is from the Indian tradition of Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of devotion, and is practiced by group singing of simple mantras and the names of the divine in various archetypal forms. Whether one comes to kirtan for a sense of community, the joy of devotion, or the pure love of singing, chanting together can lead us to connect with the peace and stillness that is inherent within each of us. No prior experience is necessary.
Malika & Clark have studied traditional Sanskrit chants with Geetanjali Tiwari for 15 years. They lead chanting and Dances of Universal Peace in a variety of settings.
This class is free ~ Tips for the teachers are greatly appreciated.
