Expanding Your Community And Your Practice

Sound Bath

New Moon Sound Bath
Date: Saturday, May 21st, 2022
Time: 11:30am-12:30pm
Price: $45 | $35/Member

A Sound Bath is exactly what it’s name implies–sound that envelopes and bathes you.  It is a very unique and healing experience.

Researchers have found that sound waves can reduce blood pressure as well as enhance sleep and memory. Binaural beats, tones played simultaneously that are close in pitch but not identical, can be found in a sound bath session. Studies show these sounds can reduce anxiety and enhance mood states.

Come with an open mind and open heart and be ready to be transformed.

All workshops are held at the studio.

All payments are non-refundable, but may be converted into blue door account credit (minus a $10 processing fee) if cancelation is received more than 72 hours before workshop.

Reiki 1 Training

Reiki 1 Training

Time: 1-6pm

In yoga when we say “namaste” we are stating that the spark of divine energy within us acknowledges and honors the spark of divine energy in another. In so doing, we are bringing our everyday conscious awareness into closer alignment with our true nature- our divine spark. Every alignment toward true nature, (whether via yoga practice, meditation, time in nature, etc) is a micro-attunement. Learning reiki is a powerful and lasting energetic attunement toward deeper resonance with your divine essence.

Reiki is an energy healing tradition originating in Japan at the beginning of the 20th Century. Reiki translates as ‘universal life force energy’ and has been shown to promote stress reduction, relaxation, and overall well-being. Being attuned to reiki will amplify these qualities in your life and enable you to share reiki with others, either as a professional practitioner or more casually for friends and family.

In this class you will learn:

  • The history of reiki and your place in the reiki lineage
  • Basic energetic hygiene 
  • Ethics of energy work
  • The five principles of reiki
  • Benefits and uses of reiki
  • How to do a reiki session

You’ll also be attuned to reiki energy and begin practicing with the energy. Taught by blue door’s Reiki Master, April Beebe

All workshops are held at the studio unless otherwise noted.

All payments are non-refundable, but may be converted into blue door account credit (minus a $10 processing fee) if cancelation is received more than 72 hours before workshop.

Cooking wAyurvedic Wisdom

Cooking w/Ayurvedic Wisdom
Date: July 16th, 2022
Time: 1-4pm
Price: $250 | $199/member

Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that teaches you how to live in harmony with the laws of nature.

One of the easiest ways to create harmony is by the foods we eat. In this fascinating and informative hands-on workshop you will be preparing an Ayurveda meal consistent with the Pitta season (Summer).

When you cook with Ayurvedic principles, you incorporate all 6 tastes in your meal: sweet, salty, sour, bitter, pungent, and astringent. You leave the meal satisfied and satiated with no cravings.

While cooking the meal, Jesi Mifsud will be sharing Ayurvedic tips. Afterward you will get to enjoy the wonderful, aromatic, healthy food we created.

You will leave with a better understanding of how to eat.

Taught by Jesi Mifsud, the founder of blue door. Jesi is passionate about sharing Ayurveda with the community. Growing up, Ayurveda was sneakily incorporated into her everyday life. In Indian families, moms and grandmothers don’t serve you something and say, “And, by the way, THIS is Ayurveda.” It is just part of our every day. She loves to share this simple wisdom.

All workshops are held at the studio unless otherwise noted.

All payments are non-refundable, but may be converted into blue door account credit (minus a $10 processing fee) if cancelation is received more than 72 hours before workshop.
