At Shaolin Kempo Academy, we believe in providing our students with a holistic approach to well-being. That’s why we provide classes not only in the martial arts and fitness such as kickboxing and yoga for good physical health, but we also host a number of events throughout the month for physical and spiritual well-being. This month, SKA is offering three special events to nourish the mind and body. We welcome you to come and experience something new in a friendly and compassionate setting. If you have any questions about these events, or just want to chat about them, please see Shell or email her at email@example.com.
FEBRUARY MINDFULNESS EVENTS
Sunday, February 7, 4-6pm.
Yin Yoga/Guided Meditation
Shell will be holding a Yin Yoga/Guided meditation class. Yin Yoga is a low-key practice designed to gently stretch skeletal muscles and deeply calm the nervous system using postures that are mostly seated or lying down. The postures are usually held for a period of 3-5 giving the body a chance to open up and inviting you to go deeper to the ligaments, joints, and deep fascial tissue. The Yin practice will be followed by a guided meditation to the entrancing sounds and vibrations of crystal bowls played live by Tracey Sullivan, bringing us into a deep state of relaxation.
Cost: $15 in advance/$20 at the door.
To register, email Shell at firstname.lastname@example.org and a payment link will be sent to you.

Kirtan with Stephanie and Mark
Get out of your head and into your heart! Join us for a grounded and soulful evening of Kirtan. Kirtan is a “call and response” type of yogic chanting with many of the mind-calming benefits of a yoga class or sitting meditation. Kirtans are usually sung in Sanskrit and sheets with the words will be provided. We invite you to dive into the bliss of mantra and the freedom of opening the heart through the expression of live music and song. Never been to a Kirtan before? No worries…Newbies most welcome!
Cost: $10 Donations appreciated
Sunday February 28, 4-6pm
A Reiki share is a gathering of like-minded Reiki practitioners who participate in group healing treatments on each other. The main purpose for the Reiki share is to give and receive Reiki in a casual atmosphere of friendship, honor, positive energy and devotion. Reiki share are usually held once a month at SKA and led by Reiki Master Tracey Sullivan. All lineages welcome as are those who are interested in Reiki and want to see what it’s all about.
