THE DURGA STUDIO

durgasign

Based in historic Harvard, Massachusetts, The Durga Studio is an ever-growing community of beautiful people who come together to cherish to the world around them, to hold space for each other’s sacred journeys, and to connect to their own divine spirit within.

The Durga Studio is rooted in tantra ~ a celebration of the miracle that is in each breath, in each moment, in each and every one of us.   Our bodies, our breath, and our senses are ways we have been given to arrive at a place of peace, of acute awareness and presence of being.

Our nature-based yoga classes are full of philosophy, mythology, postures, breath work, and restful meditations.  We welcome students of all levels; whether you have never stepped on the mat before or are a life-long practitioner, we invite you to be right where you are, to explore the possibilities, to honor your limitations, to celebrate YOU in all ways.   Classes are warm, not hot, with the idea that the body heats naturally from the inside out.  In each of these special flow classes, you can expect to find synchronicity with universal rhythms; detoxify, stretch and tone; unleash your energy; nourish and nurture your soul; find your breath; melt into relaxation.

 

We recognize that yoga is also a way of living, and we try to offer many opportunities that bring us into Presence.  Drum circles, live music classes, meditation, kirtan, fire ceremonies, nature hikes, and temple outings are amongst some events offered throughout the year.  Try a taste ~ or simply dive in ~ to all of these wonderful yogic experiences:

  Tuesday Earth Temple: Meditations with Mary 

Details coming soon....

7:15 - 9:00pm

"Instructions for living a life:  Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it."
~ Mary Oliver

Meditations with Mary (Oliver):  An Earth Temple Immersion

Come walk with us on a soul journey through the poetry of Mary Oliver and our inner and outer Nature.  This Fall, The Durga Studio steps into the gentle, simple and joyful teachings of Mary Oliver, of the natural world, and of the yogic philosophy of paying attention that she mused about in her profound poetry.
We will explore the art of paying attention, as Mary herself instructed us to do, and weave in yoga postures, the breath, meditation, mindfulness, mythology, philosophy, literature, plant medicine, and outdoor outings. Together we will examine the idea that the Great Mystery reveals itself in each and every moment; we need only stop, listen, and look deeply into Nature herself to see the miracle of this beautiful life. Surrounded by our supportive Earth community and guided by the insightful heart-words of this amazing poet, come discover how deep inquiry, awareness and Mother Earth herself can lead to connection, wholeness and healing.
Relax, let go, ground, nourish, nurture, recenter and reconnect to your body, your spirit, and to all creation. Bring a mat, water, and a Nature offering for our community altar.  All are welcome! OM!
