Light In The Darkness: Yoga & Candle Gazing Meditation
Wednesday, February 28th, 7-8:30pm
Have you ever sat around a fireplace, campfire or fire pit and were completely mesmerized by the flames? As you stared into them, did you notice your body begin to relax and your mind became calm, quiet and still? You may have been tapping into an ancient yogic focusing practice called Trataka. Trataka or concentrated gazing can be done with a variety of objects as the focal point but is most commonly done with a candle flame. This simple technique has a purifying, invigorating effect on the mind and improves concentration, paving the way for a deeper meditation practice.
In a darkened room lit by soft, relaxing candlelight, Denise will take you through a series of gentle yoga poses, followed by a candle gazing meditation to take you into the deeper depths of your soul, opening up your third eye and awakening your intuition. Some say this practice can even improve your physical eyesight! Come and experience the benefits for yourself.
Meet Denise Hagerman
Denise has been a part of Center for Energy Healing since 2016 as our Chief Inspiration Officer! We all enjoy her warm, vibrant and fun-loving energy. We are so thrilled she is now a certified yoga instructor and will be sharing her healing gifts through this modality. Denise started practicing yoga almost 20 years ago as a method of relieving stress while working in the corporate world. Since then, it has grown from a mere stress reduction technique into a true passion. Her classes focus on strength, flexibility and balance and are appropriate for all levels, from beginner to advanced. She is passionate about helping students relieve stress and improve both physical and mental health by getting their bodies moving, the energy channels of the body cleared and the mind relaxed for a deeper meditation practice. Although she is passionate about yoga, her classes also have a relaxed, light-hearted feel to them. (Laughing is definitely allowed!) Denise’s classes will leave your body feeling energized and empowered, your mind relaxed and focused, and your spirit soaring.
