I personally thank you for coming to my regular yoga classes. I can’t even tell you how many times I thought of delivering and sharing my yoga practice in a format of a workshop. Happy to see those who attended and those who may be considering to take one in the future.
Lymphatic System & Yoga Workshop
Unblock your lymphatic system and keep your colds or allergies away.
Learn about the most underrated part of our circulatory system and explore yoga poses with the use of specific breathing techniques to improve the critical role your lymphatic system plays in preventing disease and keeping you healthy.
Let this yoga workshop help to transform your lymph into a flowing, sparkling stream that cleans and drains the stagnant ponds of your body—strengthening your immune response and revitalizing your whole being along the way during the colder months of the year.
Iwona Wall Yoga Workshop
Learn to use the wall as a second mat to up-level your awareness, unlock hard-to-reach spots in your body and find freedom in joint spaces.
This workshop is designed to explore regular yoga poses with the use of a wall. You will find more support and stability but most of all it will deepen the level of your deep front line body awareness.
We will be at the wall for virtually every pose. The wall will provide a valuable assistance and grounding you in your postures. Refine your alignment and explore modifications. You’ll feel strong and grounded at the end of the workshop.
Garden Therapy with Sound & Music Meditation
A lovely & beneficial afternoon garden experience of chanting, music and sound meditation. Enriched with use of Kirtan, the call-and-response chanting practice from India, to open your heart and voice. Absorb your meditation through relaxing, soothing and healing sounds of music from bells, singing bowls, gongs, flute and voice. Enhance your experience in a beautiful garden spa.
Gong Meditation in a Candlelit Spa Garden
This is a unique type of sound practice that involves using therapeutic gong sounds and vibrations to bring about healing in a private garden spa setup.
This practice is also sometimes referred to as a “gong bath” because participants are “bathed” in meditation gong sound waves. The goal of “gong meditation” is usually therapeutic, whereas mindfulness meditation has many therapeutic benefits, but its deeper goal is awareness and non-judgmental appreciation of the present moment.
Sound therapy has long been used to manage a broad range of health conditions. The treatments are based on the understanding that all forms of matter – including our body’s cells – vibrate at different frequencies. Factors such as stress, depression and disease cause cells and organs within our bodies to vibrate at non-optimal frequencies.

Chakras exploration through mandala coloring
Are you interested to learn more about chakras?
We will learn while coloring a copy of illustrated Tantric chakra scrolls. The images are invaluable devise for one trying to visualize chakras while meditating on them.
One of the twin hemispheres in the human brain is visual and the other verbal. Your visual hemisphere works with the images of the chakras presented in the illustrations, which have been especially designed for coloring.
Please join me for this coloring meditation in a small yoga set up of my garden. Color pencils provided. Bring your Artist within & your favorite pencils. All welcome. Namaste
Creating Your Vision Board
Motivate yourself to reach your goals by visualizing your dreams coming true.
A Vision Board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on a specific life goals. When you create a vision board and place it in a space where you see it often, you essentially end up doing short visualization exercises through the day.
Psychology Today -
"It's been found that mental practices can enhance motivation, increase confidence and self-efficacy, improve motor performance, prime your brain for success, and increase states of flow - all relevant to achieving your best life!"
REFLECT on the past year
See how you may want to adjust some habits or change some of your behaviors, but mostly, it is to figure out what you want more of for the upcoming year.:
What made you happiest current year?
What were you doing on some of your best days current year or maybe over last several years?
Make a gratitude list.
After reflecting back, you’ll want to look forward.
VISUALIZE the future
Picture yourself when you have met your goals. What does it look like? Where are you? Who is around? What are you doing? Think about the temperature and even what you’re wearing. What do you hear? Is there a particular scent in the air? This is visualization and, like I mentioned, is a proven method for helping achieve goals.
What does it look like as you are making progress towards these goals? Because it’s not all about the destination – happiness is in the journey!
Using words – peace, joy, contentment, fulfillment.
FEEL the feelings
What is your WHY? (Your family, freedom, helping others, peacefulness, health/wellness, comfort?)
What motivates you to take steps toward making your dreams a reality? What motivates you to be your best?
Also, what will you feel when you reach your goals? Will you feel proud, ecstatic, blissful, peaceful, calm, overjoyed, warm, confident?
Use a word, phrase, or theme for the year?
What do you need to do FOR yourself to reach your goals or make these dreams a reality? Do you need to put yourself first? Practice self care daily? Be kinder to yourself?
So, when you’ve done this reflecting, brainstorming, and visualizing, you’re ready to create a super awesome Vision Board that you can use to:
Motivate yourself to meet your goals for the year.
Remind yourself of your why (your reasons for doing what you’re doing).
Keep your dreams front and center so you can frequently practice and get the benefits of visualization.
Visualize those dreams – big and small – coming true!
Now, grab the glue, scissors, and magazines. Lets get started!
select words, pictures, colors, themes that bring your dreams to life. Choose a symbol you can place as a constant reminder of the life you have chosen for yourself. When you look at these images, they should remind you why you’re doing what you’re doing and what’s most important to you. Consider how everything you choose relates to your goals and dreams and be purposeful about your design.
Finally, don't forget to celebrate your progress. Celebrating is one way to motivate you to keep going. Celebrations can be big or small. Just make sure you give yourself the acknowledgment you need to continue moving forward.
Have fun with the creating process!
(And, PLEASE don't worry about getting it "perfect.")
