RESTORATIVE RETREAT NIGHT
with Morgan Huling
FRIDAY, APRIL 14
"You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection."
Escape from the stimulating outside world and enter into a quiet and sacred place of stillness. This special evening of restorative yoga offers a peaceful respite from our busy (and sometimes stressful) day-to-day lives, allowing us time to rest and recharge. Deep but passive, this practice targets the nervous system to combat stress and bring us into a healing state of renewal.
Restorative yoga uses blankets, bolsters, cushions, and more to fully support the body, so you can let go and relax completely without any muscular exertion. It complements more rigorous physical activity, and is accessible to all bodies, including those experiencing injury and pain. All are welcome to explore and enjoy this replenishing practice.
The therapeutic effects of restorative yoga can be tremendous for the body and mind:
Experience the present moment and your body’s healing potential through pranayama (breathwork), meditation, gentle movement, supported rest, and deep relaxation. Nourish yourself in a warm cocoon of self-care, with optional hands-on support and essential oils for added comfort and release. We encourage you to bring something to cover your eyes in resting poses (an eye pillow, eye mask, scarf, etc.).
Join us to relax, refresh, and transition back into Spring with
renewed energy and equanimity.
PROGRAM PRICE: $60
If you are able, please join Morgan in supporting the growth and vitality of the All That Matters Yoga + Wellness community with an additional donation:
Purchase this workshop for $70, $80, or $90, and any amount over the base $60 ticket goes directly to our nonprofit.

CONSCIOUS CONNECTED BREATHING
with Victoria Antonelli
THURSDAY, APRIL 27TH
Breathwork became an integral part of Eastern practices like yoga, Tai Chi, and Buddhism hundreds of years ago. However, this “lost art” didn’t surface in the western world until the conscious-raising era of the 1960s and 70s. Today, the most common forms of breathwork include Holotropic Breathwork, Rebirthing Breathwork, Clarity Breathwork, and Biodynamic Breathwork. Conscious Connected Breathing utilizes a circular breathwork pattern to relieve stress and remove emotional blocks. This 75-minute session begins with housekeeping and answering questions before setting an intention. From there, you'll hold the Conscious Connected Breath pattern for approximately 30 minutes, followed by a 7–8 minute meditation. The practice will close with a reading. Once the session concludes, there will be approximately 10 minutes available for journaling about your experience (optional).
The breath pattern consists of two deep inhales (into the stomach first then chest, each one expanding) and one exhale (short release- stomach contracts). You will be inhaling and exhaling through the mouth, all while lying down.
This breathwork can be intense -- emotionally, physically, and mentally! Therefore:
Consult a physician beforehand if you are pregnant or have a history of aneurisms, cardiovascular problems, high blood pressure, vision problems, osteoporosis, if you’ve had any recent physical injuries or surgeries, or if you experience severe psychiatric symptoms / seizures or take heavy medication.
What you'll need:
- Yoga mat
- Yoga blanket
- Something to write with

MONTHLY GONG BATHS
with Stephanie Marisca
FRIDAYS | 7:00-8:00PM:
+ MORE TO COME!
Get your Gong On!
Experience the vibrational healing of the bronze gong and Tibetan singing bowls. You will lie down or sit comfortably and begin with mindful relaxed breathing holding a personal or group intention. Then, the gong playing begins. At first you hear soft gong sounds and as you listen carefully, you become aware of the many tones within one sound. The sounds become louder and louder washing over and around you, creating waves of sound that carry you into the past, the future, and even to other worlds. Many people experience something noticeable during a meditative Gong Bath; it can range from feeling their bodies twitch (as the energy meridians are cleared and balanced), seeing amazing splashes of color behind their closed eyes, past life recollections in full detail, a feeling of lifting out of their bodies and watching from above, to simply a feeling of total peace and connectedness. Whatever your experience, it will be the perfect experience unique to you.
Join us for this sound meditation circle, and leave feeling rested,
relaxed and rejuvenated.
PLAN AHEAD: Please bring: a yoga mat, blanket, or padding to make yourself comfortable.
PROGRAM PRICE: $25
5-Bath passes are back!
