(GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass.) – Vinisha’s Garden, a four-month course in transformative and healing arts for women, will be offered at Sruti Yoga Center beginning on September 10, 2011. Led by Amy Webb, owner/founder of Sruti, Vinisha’s Garden meets every other Saturday for 3 hours with make-up sessions on Fridays, and is for all ages and experience levels.
This journey presents a colorful weave of over 30 techniques in yoga, meditation, shamanic tools, and energy therapies from around the world. Inspired by her experience as a wilderness therapy guide for women, and prompted by local healing arts professionals to offer this course, Amy is thrilled to bring women together to study and experience healing in a supportive environment.
“How can we do our inner work, cultivate our ‘inner gardens,’ listen to the voice in our hearts, and at the same time be present and available for our families and our responsibilities?” asks Amy. “That inner work is regenerative because it stems from the power of true love. That is what I hope to offer as we journey together through elements, colors, themes, practices, techniques — and a lot of laughter.”
Supplemental and optional activities in addition to the eight regularly scheduled class sessions include QiGong, Afro-meridian dance, and firewalking.
Several introductory sessions are scheduled for those interested in learning more about the course. These free one hour overviews take place on Tuesday, August 30, at 7:30pm; Saturday, September 3, at 1pm; and Tuesday, September 6, at 7:30pm.
