The nest is a unique feature of HAWK & hummingbird designed as an intimate group space dedicated to mind-body, holistic healing. We offer a full schedule of meditation, mindfulness and yoga classes to the Providence community. Our small group class size was intentionally designed to foster a nourishing and friendly atmosphere that enhances the mind-body experience. Host to a variety of unique workshops and groups, at The nest we offer something for everyone in need of restoration, renewal, and healing.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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: email@example.com and we will be in touch soon.
