https_%2F%2Fcdn.evbuc.com%2Fimages%2F53282135%2F267674657720%2F1%2Foriginal.jpg

“The more light you allow within you, the brighter the world you live in will be.” — Shakti Gawain

Winter can be the busiest time of the year. For most of us, what the body, mind, and spirit really wants to do is slow down & turn inward. You may find your inner world in a bit of tension. Carve out time for this yoga practice. Setting intentions will ignite your passions and encourage your true self to shine brightly. That’s why it’s more important than ever to embrace positivity at this time of year and let our inner light shine through the darkness. When our own light shines bright, we encourage everybody else to shine their own light more brightly too.

Join Reiki Master + yoga teacher Cassie Zehren for a 90m Mindful Movement + Meditation + Reiki class. Students are guided through a sequence of yoga poses that emphasize meditative movement. Class concludes with a guided meditation and Reiki. Creating a bit of that inner heat to take with you off your mat and loving our own light by adoring our own true self is the key to brightening winter. Give yourself the gift of this evening. You are worth it.

https___cdn.evbuc.com_images_53932233_267674657720_1_original.jpg

Grab your closest gals for a cozy night of interactive candle-making and hatha yoga in the candle light. 

Chicago candle-maker Jessica Snively will teach you everything you need to know to make a soy wax candle in a reused or vintage container. You'll create your own signature fragrance from a blend of scented soy-based oils. As the candles are setting, Wildlight Yoga owner + teacher, Kelli Wefenstette, will lead you in a 60-minute gentle Hatha practice. All are welcome

All the supplies are provided, including wax and fragrance oils. You can bring your own container or purchase one on-site. You’ll get 1 lb. of wax, and depending on the size of your container(s), you’ll leave with 1–2 completed candles. (For reference, 16 oz. of wax will fill a container approximately the size of a standard can of veggies.) Jessica's poured candles in nearly everything that can be described as a “container”—quirkier finds have included a glass cowboy boot, vintage egg cup, honey bear jar, and mug that says “He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother”—so feel free to go on a thrift-shopping spree before class.

Hot tea + allergy-free treats will be served. Students are welcome to bring wine.
