Yoga in the Wild: 30 spots in person, rotating natural locations (and unlimited virtual)

You are luckier than you know. Los Angeles is the only metropolitan area in the world to have a major mountain range running directly down the middle of the city! This means that Los Angeles has unique pockets of habitats and ecosystems found only here, in your own backyard or under the parking spot you found for the night. Wild animals are everywhere and wild places to escape to and do Yoga in are abundant & nearby within the county.

Join us once a month to visit a different, rotating place in nature for a special kind of Yoga workshop. Enjoy a gentle walk, complemented by a nature talk, ending with a cozy place to nestle in, relax your body, quiet your mind, and drink in deep Yogic breaths and supported stretches. Your Doctors will provide you with supportive touch for alignment and balance.

One month rest on large boulders at Vazquez Rocks, another month inside a wildlife sanctuary, another month sink into the warm ocean sand. Explore & enjoy this magical city of yours. We love LA!

Details: 30 Yoga Mat spaces to lay back, unlimited virtual spaces for all. Sliding scale, pay what you can. Suggestion donation $25-$65. Receiving touch is optional. This is a safe place for all. (Dress in layers and bring your own padding/blanket/pillow/beanie/journal/pencil (no ink). Temperatures can be much cooler in the canyons and there is usually a breeze.)

FIRST SATURDAY of every month: 10:00am - 2:00pm ~ (June) Kimberly Hamilton, Yoga Instructor, Certified Massage Therapist/(sub & April & May) Dr. Bobbi Jones, Doctor of Chiropractic, Somatic Therapist

FIRST SUNDAY of every month: April Through September 5:00pm - 7:00pm; October Through March 4:00pm - 6:00pm ~ Dr. Bobbi Jones & Dr. Day Thompson

Somatic Soundbath & Bonfire Ceremony

Somatic means “of the body” and it pertains to how we specifically experience emotion in our bodies. Ever feel like some of your emotional feelings are trapped inside of your physical aches & pains? Have you have a physical trauma that you still suffer from visible, and invisible, perhaps even emotional, scars? Do you experience “big feelings” or have you been described as “sensitive”, “intuitive”, “old soul”, “psychic” or other meaningful words? Did you know it is now scientific fact that you have the seemingly magical power to heal yourself?... and we can help teach you how.

Our two female Doctors have teamed up to feature their one-of-a-kind Soundbath with a twist of healing touch and ceremonial bonfire. Enjoy a Head Massage, perhaps a deep shoulder rub, or passive Yoga inspired stretches that elongate and depressurize your entire skeleton, all whilst resting deeply & snuggly in nature, listening to the powerful and essential vibrational healing of crystal & metal Sound Bowls, West African Djembes & various other ceremonial drums, Tibetan Tingsha Chimes, Yogic & Indian Bells, First Nation & other medicinal rattles, rainsticks, voices, and more healing instruments of love, surrounded by the sounds of your unique Los Angeles wildlife near sunset.

End your monthly healing journey from After our Somatic Soundbath, we will end with a small, mindful walk to our Ceremonial Bonfire, built for releasing and letting go of anything heavy or harmful from your current month to make room for the intentions and passions of the next month ahead. Write it down and toss it in the flames. Watch what you are releasing and letting go of burn and transform from one energy to another, as is the power of fire. Remember the moment as a symbol of the transformation & perspective shift that can happen in your mind when you open your heart.

Details: 20 comfy seats, 20 Yoga Mat spaces to lay back, unlimited virtual spaces for all. Sliding scale, pay what you can. Suggestion donation $25-$65. Receiving touch is optional. This is a safe place for all. (Dress in layers and bring your own mat/padding/blanket/pillow/beanie/journal/pencil (no ink in fire). Temperatures can be much cooler (10+ degrees) in the canyons and there is usually a breeze.)

FIRST SUNDAY of every month: 11:00am - 2:00pm ~ Dr. Bobbi Jones, DC, Dr.Chris Biggerstaff, DVM, MTs TBD

Doggie Day Spa

You know who could use a really great Massage?... your dog!

That’s right. And perhaps a Chiropractic Alignment as well… just like you!

Dogs and humans and all mammals have these special cells in their brains called “mirror neurons” which are specialized nerve cells that notice what someone else is doing nearby and, if its non threatening, they prompt the witness too behave in the same way. For example, imagine I take a nice, deep, nourishing yawn… now you want one too, and might even start to actually yawn as well, mirroring my behavior as a way of socially bonding.

So does your dog companion, and cat companion too. They mirror our behavior and we mirror theirs. Its a way of bonding that keeps us both safe without having to use words or verbal language and sounds. This is one reason why we love them so very much and always want the best for them.
