It's What You DON'T Say That Counts - How to Get Your Body Language Working for You, Not Against You!
  We've all heard it -- it's not what you say but rather how you say it that can have the greater impact and make the bigger impression. What does your body language say about you and is it helping you to get the results that you want in life? While your message is always important, frequently it's the look, movement, and sound of you that others will tune into first that determines if they even bother to listen to what you have to say. Confidence, competence, trustworthiness, like-ability, all happens at a purely nonverbal level. And, how we project ourselves has everything to do with with our ability to influence, convince, and get desired results. Find out what this body language looks like and how to consistently project your best nonverbal self!.

Opening Your Heart-Soul Connection to Dance Gracefully Through Life on YOUR Terms
  Have you ever wondered why some people just seem “happier” than others? Or how other people seem to be able to find “happiness” even in the most troubling situations? Happiness is more than thinking positively or trying to look for the ‘bright side’ of what might be happening. There are specific strategies to raise your “happiness quotient” and increase your overall health or well-being so that feeling authentically joyful, optimistic, and upbeat is your natural way of life.
  Lyla Berg, author of newly-released Leaving the Gilded Cage, will offer you a glimpse of what she shares in her book: ways to navigate more smoothly through life’s complexities and rediscover your creativity, tips to build meaningful relationships, pathways to enhance your self-esteem, and ideas about how to handle conflicts with grace. Lyla will take you on a journey of strategies to open your “heart-soul connection” -- and revive yourself so you can continue creating your life on your terms.
  Sharing stories and using an Argentine tango metaphor, Lyla will invite you to discover your own tango—the driving passion that fills your heart with joy and raises your happiness barometer so you can see the new possibilities that today can bring.

Manifest Through Vision Boarding
  Many people have made vision boards and found great success in such a creation. A vision board is simply a poster board filled with images of who you are, who you want to become, what you want to have, and where you want to manifest. It is a fun and simple way to get into intentional focus and a stress-free way to get into moving towards what you desire. Attention and intention are powerful. This class will be in three parts: writing and envisioning, creating the vision board, and then the "secret" (that everyone forgets about) on how to make the images become a reality. We will cover three types of vision boards, one of which you will resonate with and create. Once you sign up for the class, you will be notified of what to prepare and bring. So --- whether you are clear about what you want in your life, or unsure of where you are heading, this class will point you in the right direction. Space limited so sign up as soon as you know you want to join us.

Unlock What You Truly Want & Get It
  Come explore a fairly new critical thinking method that will help you realize what you really want - and to look at something you want in a new way. It is a process by which you take away the assumptions you have placed on what you think you want, and see what is beneath it all. In this class you will be going through a series of questions that leads you towards ultimately unlocking what you truly want, as well as the best way to get it. The “want” can be anything that you desire and feel you don’t have such as a raise, a new job or even a new bed. The process focuses on “how" you decide versus “what” you decide and is designed to help you gain more clarity and get deeper in touch with your inner voice.

The Art of Tidying
  If you are the type that is interested in anything that has to do with organizing and decluttering, you have probably heard about the best-selling book from Japan titled, "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up". When I heard of its popularity and the 50 persons waiting list for the library copy, I knew I had to see what all the fuss was about. If you haven’t read the book yet, come and let me give you an overview of the book and the key points to the “KonMari” method. It is revolutionary in it’s method, and takes tidying to a whole new level. According to Marie Kondo, if you simplify properly, you’ll never have to do it again. She has a category-by-category system that leads to lasting results. Come and hear the basics and see why I think this is the way to declutter!

All About "Adam": The Male Brain
  What separates the male psyche from their female counterparts?
  We've all heard about that aptly titled book, Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus! This seminar unpacks and explains that truth by exploring the intricate inner workings of the male brain. Taking fascinating findings from psychological, neurological, and evolutionary research, we will focus on how the male brain looks and functions differently from a female's brain -- and explore what accounts for these differences. Gaining better understanding helps us to navigate and bring the seeming schism of the sexes into balance and synergy. Because let's face it, we may be vastly different, but we all want to live on planet Earth peaceably together!

Integrated Movement Workshop, Part 3: Lower Body
  As early as in your mid-20’s, you will start losing muscle and your ability to heal will slow down. When we enter our 40-50’s, it is time to move thru life with our eyes and heart open. This applies to our exercise regime as well since non-integrated form can not only be unproductive, but injurious.
  What is “Integrated Movement?” It is acknowledging and respecting our body as a whole and not pieces. It is working toward balance with the physical body where strength and suppleness along with calmness of mind is in a constant flow. It is respecting that your miraculous body is made to move in many ways, not only the habitual movement you have in daily life which can result in overuse and tightness in some areas and laxity in others.
  There will be three parts to the class:
  1. Increased knowledge regarding your physical body for better appreciation and awareness.
  2. Active integrated work so you can actually “feel” the kinetic chain of energy that you are working and why this is important. This will allow you to incorporate safer and more effective movement into your own workouts.
  3. In conclusion, we will learn to calm the mind with various techniques of Breathing and Yoga Nidra.

Break Up with Your Belongings
  We've all been in relationships that came to a point when we knew it was healthy and best to "move on" from and "let go" of them -- this is also true of belongings. Yet many of us find it hard to let go of things even when we know we want to...this is due to emotional attachments formed with objects. This class will help you get clarity on why you are holding on to certain things, as well as help you clarify what to keep, what to donate, what to give away when looking to clear your life of clutter (emotionally and physically).
