NVC Book Club

SYS is getting scholarly! Join Shakti Julia in September for a weekly book club on “Nonviolent Communication” by Marshall Rosenberg.

Through open discussion, partner exercises, mantra, meditation and self inquiry, we will endeavor to transform the way we think and act in relationship to others and ourselves.

Let’s Talk Tarot


Join Cynthia Ekren at Sebastian Yoga Studio for a 2 hour Tarot Card meet-up.

There will be a short 15-30 minute instruction on some aspect of Tarot before we break out into pairs to practice reading for one another, compare notes and show off our favorite decks.
If you’re interested in tarot, please join us! You will be a welcome addition to the group. If you don’t know anything about the cards, that’s okay. You can listen in, and can ask all the questions you want.

Art As Meditation

Sebastian Yoga, Art as Meditation

Art is a vehicle for meditation and self-connection. Join Shelley Adelle for an evening of guided craft making and tap into the power of refined movement and your unique creative voice!
