How do you spend your life? Are you looking for the potholes…or are you looking at the flowers on the side of the road? What you focus upon creates your reality. Yes…you really are that powerful. We are grateful for your interest in Earth Pulse Yoga; and we hope you will come and indulge in yourself, grounding into who and what you really are, and expanding into your light and power. 
Wishing You Love & Light and an Abundance of Everything Good & Wholesome. -Wendy and Will

Thursday, November 27 th : 9 – 10:30 am ($15)

For what are you grateful? This is a question often posed in class. It is a powerful practice to invoke gratitude…not only for the grandiose joys of our life, but the subtle ones, like the bitterness of that morning cup of coffee or the feel of your favorite blanket.

In this very special class, we will indulge in the language of gratitude, expressing it through silent meditation, vocal toning exercises, and yoga asana. Our wish for you is to see the months ahead not with a sense of dread and responsibility, but with a sense of deeply immersed gratitude and joy.


To benefit the food pantry and the homeless

Please come and support those in the community and surrounding communities who are in need. On Sunday, December 7 th , Earth Pulse Yoga will be hosting a day of free yoga classes. In exchange, we hope you will bring non-perishable food items for the food pantry as well as new or 'like new' coats, hats, gloves, and scarves for adults in need. Cash donations will also be accepted and will be directed to either the pantry or the clothing endeavor, per your request. 
The yoga schedule for the event is posted on the website.http://www.earthpulseyoga.com/events/yogathon-supporting-need/ 
We are also seeking crafters, service and food vendors to share in this event. Cost for a table is $15, and all proceeds will be donated


Saturday, December 13 th : Noon – 2 pm 
$15 for pre-registration; $25 at the door

Take a break during the holiday season to nurture mind and body, release and rejuvenate. 
This mid-holiday workshop is an opportunity to rest in your center. It incorporates elements of pranayama (yogic breathing), yoga asana (with a focus upon twisting), yin yoga, as well as guided meditation. The workshop will end with a healing, vocal toning exercise. 
Why twisting? 
Twisting asanas, in particular, are an effective way to release toxins from the body (by massaging the entire abdominal cavity), reduce stress, and physically and mentally energize. 
Why Yin Yoga? 
Yin yoga is a powerful yogic practice. The premise of yin (which is very restorative to the soft tissues and excellent to both prevent arthritis and improve arthritic symptoms) is to relax into a grounded, well-supported pose. Through this 'relaxing into the pose' we have an opportunity to intensely 'feel' our physical body; and when the dull ache of discomfort arises, yin teaches us not to resist—which is what we have been conditioned to do, but to let go and go deeper into ourselves. Obviously yin is not only a physical practice, but it is a spiritual practice. It teaches us to look at our shadows and our darkness and instead of avoidance, meeting those lessons with gratitude.

To register for this workshop: 


Tuesday, December 9 th – December 30 th
7:00 - 8:30 pm
$40 for preregistration; $15 walk-ins

In between our 8-week beginner yoga series, which is held on Tuesday evenings and recommencing in January, we are offering a special, “mini” beginner yoga series, with an extra kick. During this 4-week session, you have the opportunity—if you so desire—to voice your opinion and createyour yoga class. 
What? Are we crazy? No…we want to invite you to nurture the practice of 'asking for what you need' and honoring yourself. 
How will this feat be accomplished? Upon registration, contact us and let us know what you want to be addressed in those four weeks. Perhaps downward facing dog, tree pose, or warrior II is frustrating for you.Perhaps you want to learn more about twists, back bends, strength poses, etc. Perhaps you want to learn more about pranayama (in general) or a specific yogic breathing technique. Perhaps you want to learn about how to meditate or invoke vocal toning to bring healing to your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. 
It's up to you. The field is wide open and we are listening.

Charmed Life Gallery presents:

Dark Matter: artworks by Annie Farrar
In my most recent body of work I use materials from daily life, objects that have cultural associations and points of reference for viewers. I explore the tension between the cerebral concerns of minimalism and an investigation of humanity: emotional, spiritual, symbolic, and narrative. At its core, the work is a meditation on entropy, time, loss, decay, renewal, and survival.

 My background in painting informs my interest in the materiality of paint and how its physical properties can be explored beyond two dimensions. The artwork changes with time; it is a mirror that invites viewers to consider their own mortality. Materials off-gas, break down and decay, just as our own bodies do. I ask the viewer to feel raw and vulnerable and to delve into their own emotional landscapes.

Annie Farrar was born in Wheeling, West Virginia and grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Nashville, Tennessee. She earned her BFA in Painting in 2004 from the Maryland Institute College of Art and her MA in Museum Studies in 2009 from the George Washington University. Annie is a Baltimore artist whose process-oriented work is a meditation on decay and renewal. She has exhibited throughout the east coast and southern United States.

Cellar Stage presents
Friday, November 14

IONA’s music is a unique, acoustic weave of the traditional music of Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany (France), the Isle of Man, Asturies and Galicia (Spain), as well as their transplants in America. Blending songs, dance tunes, and aires into a rich and stunning tapestry, their style is outstanding in an arena where these traditions are seldom intertwined. Conceived in 1986, IONA was the musical offspring of lead singer, bouzouki, guitar and bodhrán player Barbara Ryan and wind section,Bernard Argent. With fiddler Jim Queen (banjo and vocals as well) and bass guitar player Chuck LawhornIONA has become the leading Celtic group in the Mid-Atlantic region. They are all seasoned performers: entertainers who involve their audiences with the history and cultural backgrounds of the music, with teaching words to the songs — even those sung in a Celtic tongue, with leading simple Breton dances, with humor, and with every emotion in the spectrum. Traditional Celtic material, haunting songs, toe tapping dances and the humor of the Celtic peoples from Scotland to Brittany provide IONA with an incredibly varied repertoire.
Original acoustic arrangements all the members of the band play several instruments, often switching within a piece to achieve their unique sound. They weave tunes from different countries around their songs, pursuing complex rhythms with deft professionalism.
Barbara Ryan’s voice has been described as “smooth and sweet as dark honey.” A folk singer in the 60’s, she studied voice for 10 years, and has been a vocal coach ever since.
Bernard Argent is IONA’s charming historian and yarn spinner. He studied music through much of his youth and at university in England.
Chuck Lawhorn, IONA’s bassist, not only owns just about every bass guitar conceived by mankind, but plays them all expertly. He also dabbles in whistle and sings a mean tenor harmony with the group.
Jim Queen comes to IONA as a veteran of 30 years performing with the Air Force Band. Master of many instruments, his primary contributions are fiddle and vocals, although he brings a touch of banjo and guitar to the mix as well. He’s performed all over the world and in just about every state, for presidents, heads of state and luminaries in every field.
Dancer Kathleen Larrick will be joining IONA for this performance.
