Winter Solstice-the longest night of the year. What a powerful gift! Darkness allows us time to rest and recharge. It provides us with the opportunity to go deep within ourselves and discover new parts of ourselves. It allows us to appreciate the Light-especially the one that lives within each of us.
For me, Winter Solstice has always been a highly Spiritual day. A day of deep reflection and prayer. A day when Creator feels close and at attention.
Winter Solstice also marks the return of the light. With each subsequent day, from Winter Solstice onward, the days get longer and longer. In the Indigenous traditions I’ve studied, Winter Solstice enters us into the Time of the North. This is the time of deep Feminine Wisdom, of Intuition, of Blessings, and of Spirit. This is also the Time of Death. Death for the purpose of Rebirth - clearing the old and making room for the new life which comes each Spring.
I hope you can join me for this revert Shamanic Yoga Ceremony to welcome in this powerful Time of the Darkness and of the North.
The Ceremony is a mix of yoga and Shamanic practices, is accessible for all levels of yoga and Shamanic practitioners (including no experience), and is designed to help you tap into this potent Introspective Intuitive Wisdom that The Solstice is blessing us with at this time.
Talya Ring’s ceremonies are a fertile arena for connecting to the sacred and being uplifted. During these ceremonies, the veil between the spirit world and our own becomes thin. Participants are guided on how to move between the worlds in order to gain the power and insights necessary to write the scripts for the lives they truly want. They emerge peaceful, hopeful and calm, with renewed confidence in themselves and in their life. Talya has been teaching since 2004 and is an E-RYT 500 registered Yoga Alliance Instructor. She founded Shamanic Yoga, a practice which fuses yoga with indigenous ceremony, a powerful combination which brings about rapid life transformation in short periods of time Talya has traveled the world extensively leading teacher trainings, workshops and retreats. She has spent the last 15 years studying and practicing with medicine people from a variety of indigenous backgrounds including the Blackfoot People, the Cherokee People, and the Toltecs. Her Shamanic work is a unique fusion of her own deep spiritual practice in combination with all she has learned over the years. As with everything she does, she discards that which is outdated and clumsy, and melds together that which is relevant and effective into something pertinent and powerful. It is an inclusive practice which honors all backgrounds and religious beliefs. Talya is also co-founder of Turbodog Yoga. She and her husband, Steve Emmerman, created this strength-building practice based on the latest scientific understanding of how muscles lengthen and open. It is an exciting and super effective approach and students enjoy meaningful and lasting results.
