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: Spring Cleaning 

7:15 - 9:00pm

"Instructions for living a life:  Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it."
~ Mary Oliver
 I am currently preparing for a gentle mind-body-spirit "Spring Cleaning," and I thought it might be fun to share this journey together! Over the next five weeks, I invite you to join me on Tuesday nights beginning March 3 (7:15pm) here at my home studio/temple at 35 Scott Road, Harvard. Our format will be like the Hatha Yoga of my childhood: Rooted in Nature, slow, deep, peaceful.
Through synchronizing to earth's rhythms, and through still and mindful postures, breath-work, mantra and meditation, we are given the opportunity to break through long-held patterns, resistance, and inner blocks. The intent is to declutter and detoxify, and shed the heavy physical and emotional Winter layers so that ~ like the sweet sap of the sugar maples ~  life force (and joy) can flow freely come Springtime!
Space is limited (but oh-so-cozy), so if you are interested, please rsvp here or give a shout via text at (978) 790-4429. $20 per drop-in class, or $80 for five weeks pre-paid (last class free). Bring a mat and a sitting pillow if you have one. I would LOVE you to join me!
