Manifesting Mandalas with Sandra Coyner

The word mandala in sanskrit means circle. A circle represents luck and unity and life, itself, in that it is never ending. The circle and its center point are the basis for creating your very own mandala; your representation of your spirit’s journey as a unified whole with all that is inside and outside your mental and physical bodies.

In this workshop, we will each create and color a personal mandala that can be as basic or intricate as you like. We will cover a brief history of mandalas and their uses as well as the meaning of symbols you may want to add. We will have a group meditation near the end of the workshop focusing on our mandalas. This workshop is for everyone! You do not need artistic talent!!! Everything needed will be supplied.

  • You are welcome to bring yourself snacks and drinks.
  • We will be sitting/working on the floor with mats and bolsters (not chairs/tables)
  • Please consider in advance what symbols or general designs you may want to incorporate.

Why should I create a mandala?!

  • Opportunity to use your creative brain
  • Relaxing
  • Promotes balance and healing
  • Reminder all is possible when true to your center (heart)
  • Meditational focal point
  • Expression of self-awareness
  • Fun!

Subtle Body-A Chakra Balancing Practice with The Starnes Sisters

Join Sarah and Stephanie in a workshop designed to help you connect to the more subtle layers of yourself through a balancing practice of movement, breath, contemplation, journaling and stillness. We will have a physical practice filled with asanas that resonate with each of the 7 main chakras in the body, with time to go over the qualities of each energy center. This can help you to identify where your body may need healing or balancing, and give you tools to explore the inner and outer process. Please bring a journal and pen. This practice is open to all levels of experience.

About the Starnes Sisters
The Starnes Sisters (Sarah and Stephanie) have been studying the practices of yoga, health and spirituality their entire lives. They owe much of their knowledge to their mother, Debbie, who raised them all naturally, and taught them many, very valuable lessons about life and how to connect to Nature. Sarah began teaching yoga in 1999 and Stephanie began teaching in 2004. Their ever-evolving teaching style is playful and light hearted... yet intense, challenging, and deeply focused on healthy alignment and healing. Sarah and Stephanie love to immerse their students in the healing vibrations of sound... performing kirtan, live music in yoga classes, gong sound healing workshops and always singing to their students in Savasana. With backgrounds primarily in Anusara, AcroYoga, Energy Healing and Native American studies, The Starnes Sisters embody an eclectic mix of mindful practice, ritual, play and grace.
