 Ground

Meditation for grounding yourself

Just like a power line needs to be secured to the earth, we also sometimes have excess energy that needs grounding. Connect to your body with meditation techniques to calm the body and bring a nourishing stillness to the mind. Practices in this class can aid in building internal resilience, reducing feelings of overwhelm or distress that many of us have during anxiety experiences.

 

Connect

Meditation for connecting to yourself

Connect with your innermost experience and the brightest version of you. Our Connect meditation is geared towards focusing on the stripping away of the layers of stress, unhelpful story and false beliefs that lie between you and your most authentic self. Reignite your heart-mind connection and see what inspiration bubbles up. 

 

heal

Meditation to heal your inner self

Get in touch with the natural healing capacity that lies within you. Heal meditation is designed to facilitate a deeper connection to the wisdom of the body and the generous resources that lie in the heart. Meditation techniques will aid you in cultivating body awareness and connecting it to the energetic aspects of the heart: truth, love, and compassion for self and others. Deepen the connection to your innate, abundant love and compassion to heal the parts of you that have felt unheard or unhealed. 

 

breathe

Meditation for clearing your mind

Breathe class combines meditation with the use of yogic breath-work to move energy in the body and clear out the excess “stuff” in the mind.  The practice of breathing stimulates your body’s natural ability to relax and restore, while being fed by nutrient-rich oxygen.  Our intention for you is to leave Breathe class feeling revitalized, restored, with a clear mind and a calm body. 

 

Yoga

connect your mind, body & spirit

 HAWK & hummingbird yoga classes are focused on connecting the body with the breath, which steadies the mind and helps you connect with more ease to your most authentic self.  Led by experienced instructors and healers, our classes integrate mindful movement, breath work and stretching with constructive resting poses to replenish your energy reserves, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. 

 

workshops

HAWK & hummingbird workshops are designed to enhance our weekly offerings by providing additional supportive information and practices. These workshops are also a chance to connect and heal alongside a community of like-minded people. Please check back regularly for updated offerings. Interested in leading a workshop or group at The nest? We would love to hear your ideas. Reach out to us: thenest@hawkhummingbird.com and we will be in touch soon.

Are classes for beginners?

All classes are designed to serve all levels of practice. We offer a combination of guidance, which is great for beginners, and silence, which may be preferred by advanced-level participants. We suggest trying different classes and teachers to find your best fit. 

Do I need to bring my own cushion or mat?
No. At The nest we provide comfortable cushions, mats, chairs and blankets. However, if you prefer practicing on your own cushion or mat, then you are welcome to bring them. We honor your preference!
What do I wear?
Comfort is key in meditation. We encourage you to wear something that will support your practice.  Loose clothing is often preferred, but not required. Also, while we do our best to maintain a temperature that is comfortable for most, you may want to bring socks or a scarf if you tend to get cold. (If you forget, we have plenty of blankets for your comfort!) For yoga classes, we suggest wearing clothing that will allow you to stretch comfortably without restriction.
Do I have to register in advance?
Yes. What makes The nest unique is that our class size is small and intimate. When you register in advance you are securing your practice space.register for a class
