Returning to Light – A Soltice Celebration with Shelly Cassivi and Chase Trellert

Self-Care Sundays

In a world that seems to be moving faster and faster, where chaos is becoming a daily reality, it is imperative that we carve out time for ourselves in order to maintain health, balance, and sanity.

Join Shelly for the last Sunday of each month to explore self care practices designed to fill you up. It is an opportunity to step outside of your day to day life and cultivate practices meant to bring you back to life.

Each month will focus on a different theme with the common intent to allow the luxury of time and attention in order to reduce stress, bolster energy, and allow a sense of purpose and meaning to begin to resurface.

 

Come celebrate the summer solstice with a powerful sound healing meditation and rousing kirtan!

Shelly and Chase will weave together a tapestry of sound taking you through a deep inner journey of change and transformation leading you back to a place of peace and inner light.

From this heart expanded state we will join together in breath & sound sharing one voice as we celebrate community, connection, and another journey around the sun!

Kirtan is Bhakti yoga, the yoga of devotion. Think of it as a musical meditation. The leader will sing a praise and the participants sing it back. This goes on and on building to a point of oneness. No musical ability is necessary. The group will carry you. Come have the experience of being the single drop and the ocean all at once!

About Shelly Cassivi

Years before Shelly began the physical practice of yoga She was engaged in the practice of meditation and reiki, so when she was introduced to the teachings of Michael Stone and Sarah Powers it really struck a chord in her. Both of these teachers blend yoga with Buddhist mindfulness philosophy. You will find this mindfulness approach layered into her classes.

Shelly feels fortunate to have the opportunity to share her passion for yoga with the Kushala community. It has been and continues to be a journey of connection, growth, expansion and love; a path that gives meaning to our lives. Shelly is focused on the full experience of yoga and the transformative nature of this simple practice when all of the intricate layers are woven into the equation: physical, mental, emotional & energetic.

In addition to teaching yoga Shelly is a musician with a passion for music. She sometimes leads our community in kirtan (the yoga of devotion, think musical meditation). In class you can expect the best play lists, occasional live instruments, and the best Om the tri-cities has to offer!
