The Mat Project is a local non-profit organization started by my friend and fellow yoga teacher Alysia McKean. The Mat Project teaches yoga to women and youth, most of whom are at risk and underserved. Many have experienced trauma. Through yoga, the Mat Project builds confidence, empowerment, and educational opportunities.
Our monthly Friday Fundraiser Flow classes are offered by donation, and 100% of donations will go to The Mat Project. If you cannot attend in person on November 12 from 6-7:15pm, an online donation may be made here.
Immerse yourself in the healing power of sound. Sound has become the medicine of our times as people search for new ways to bring inner peace and stress relief into their daily lives.
Using the highest grade Crystal Alchemy Singing Bowls, Becky Hopp will guide you on a relaxing journey that will help with stress, tension, sleeplessness, anxiety, depression, grief, physical pain, and addiction. This is done through the waves of sound which calm the nervous system and balance the subtle body.
Prepare to leave feeling refreshed, radiant, and glowing from the inside out. Be bathed in the healing vibrations of sound, all from the comfort of your own mat. It is recommended to bring a pillow, blanket, eye pillow, eye mask, etc. ~ whatever is going to help you be most comfortable and allow you to relax fully relax into the experience.
Becky Hopp is a wife, dog mom, Certified Sound Healer, Certified Health and Wellness Coach, Reiki Master in training, cancer survivor, open heart patient, and frequent flyer at The Cleveland Clinic. Sound Healing came into her life at a time when she thought she was being called to be a yoga instructor. As it turns out, the Universe was leading her on a path of her soul’s purpose ~ to help and give back to others through the power of healing sound vibrations. Sound Healing has completely changed her life and she is beyond grateful.
This holiday season, Satsang Yoga is partnering with Berea Community Outreach to help a local family in need. The family we're helping in our Giving Tree Project is a grandmother and the three grandchildren she is caring for. We've received a "wish list" from Berea Community Outreach for this family and will be collecting donations of items from it.
Here's how it works:
--Between November 26--December 9, take as many "ornament tags" from the tree in the studio as you'd like -- each one will list an item from the wish list along with the gender and age of the recipient.
--Place the gifts (along with the original ornament tags) under the tree at the studio no later Thursday, December 9. Gifts should be unwrapped (you can include wrapping paper and tape if you'd like), or they can be in a gift bag without tissue paper.
--I will deliver the gifts to Berea Community Outreach on Friday, December 10 for distribution to the family.
Our Giving Tree Project will kick off on Friday, November 26 with a Candlelight Relaxation and Meditation class led by Jennifer from 6-7:30pm (see below). Stay after class for light refreshments and to select your ornament tags from the tree. This special candlelight relaxation class is by donation: please bring non-perishable food items or a cash donation for Berea Community Outreach's Food Pantry.

Please stop by to enjoy some socializing and delicious food (from Cleveland Vegan Catering & Cafe!) and to celebrate the fact that our little yoga studio made it through an original opening, a global pandemic, and a move to a new location in less than 2 years. Whew!
We'll also be offering a sale on class passes, retail items, and gift certificates.
Most importantly, when you come by, you can choose to participate in our Giving Tree Project, which runs from Nov. 26-Dec. 9. We have partnered with Berea Community Outreach to help a family in need this holiday season. Choose an ornament tag from our tree, purchase the wish list item on it, and return it to the tree at the studio no later than Dec. 9.
Join Jennifer Lenhart on a 6-day spiritual retreat in magical Taos, New Mexico.
Bounded by the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and at an elevation of 6,969', Taos is located in the high desert of northern New Mexico. Along with breathtaking natural beauty, hiking, and mineral hot springs, Taos is known for historic adobe buildings (including Taos Pueblo). As a longtime artist colony, the town offers many galleries and museums showcasing local and regional artwork. Our retreat accommodations are a charming adobe-style lodge built-in 1925.
Taos is also home to the Baba Neem Karoli Ashram & Hanuman Temple. Baba Neem Karoli (known to his devotees as Mahara-ji) was the beloved guru of Ram Dass. Auspiciously, our retreat in the “Land of Enchantment” coincides with the July full moon and the holiday Guru Purnima, a traditional celebration dedicated to gurus, or enlightened spiritual masters. On this day, seekers offer gratitude and devotion to their gurus and receive their blessings. Visiting the Baba Neem Karoli Ashram will be one of the optional excursions offered to our group.
Retreats offer us a chance to step away from the busyness of daily life in order to reconnect with nature and ourselves, to build community with like-minded seekers, and to work on our spiritual practice in an immersive and intentional way. Our retreat will include daily breath-centered and mindful Jivamukti yoga asana practice; dharma talks and discussion focusing on the teachings of Ram Dass and Mahara-ji; seated guided and seated silent meditation; walking meditation (on the retreat center’s outdoor labyrinth); pranayama (breathing exercises); chanting mantras accompanied by the harmonium; singing bowls; a karma yoga service project; and nourishing home-cooked plant-based meals. There will also be plenty of free time for resting, enjoying the pool and hot tub at the retreat center, and exploring nature and the town of Taos.
