When we are in pain, we become self-centered and myopic. When we heal, we become more empathetic, self-less, and sympathetic to the pain and welfare of others. It is our gift to others to heal ourselves.

From Chaos to Harmony – Max Strom’s Renewal Workshop - 11:15AM - 1:45PM | $45: 

The intent of breath-work and postures is not only to increase our flexibility and strength but also to promote health, vitality, and emotional clarity. This special workshop is focused on re-igniting the inner fire and transforming stress into inspiration. Experience Max Strom’s unique renewal class that will include a talk, breath-initiated movement, postures, and dynamic meditation. All levels.

Some Doors Open Only from the Inside - The Healing Power of Transformational Breath Work - 2:45PM - 4:45PM | $45:

 A special session of standing and sitting breathing exercises. The voice of our intuition and wisdom is commonly drowned out by the noise in our mind. The noise is often caused from chaotic or congested emotions from stress, depression, PTSD, or anxiety. Focused breath work can spark within us the reawakening of our higher nature, the voice of intuition, wisdom, and conscience. The practices you will learn in this workshop will take you to new depths and inspire you for weeks to come. Max has taken this work around the world to people of many faiths and nationalities. Bring your mat and writing materials. (Please no recording equipment). All levels.
