Although we will keep our space at Divine Play we will no longer be in Suite 211 as of April 22nd. We’ve found a place on the downtown pedestrian mall. Some classes and massages will keep rolling during the transition period out of Divine Play. (We have a full home studio for massages in the Fry Springs area of Charlottesville.) By the first week of May we’ll be moved! And continue to be awesome! Stay tuned to our class schedule for updates. For example, 9:00 am classes are now registration required.
A heart felt thank you for building this community with us!
Join us for soothing meditation practice every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 7:30am in the Warm Vinyasa class.
We also partner with a local Dharma Center Wednesday at 7:00pm or Saturday at 11:00am at the Jefferson Tibetan Society, behind Cherry Avenue. We encourage students of all backgrounds to learn classical shamatha, or breath-focused, mediation. Unlike other forms of deep-tissue massage therapy and work-out yoga, Thai Massage and the style of Hot Yoga and Warm Vinyasa we practice at Hydra Yoga Spa encourages a deeper understanding of these spiritual practices.
Although our yoga instructors and massage therapists lead small portions of guided meditation durning class, the traditional cultivation of regular meditation practice and understanding the Dharma has tremendous physical and mental benefits. Although spiritual in nature, these practices can be easily incorporated into any persons practice of prayer or relaxation time. Meditation decreases stress and anxiety, increases focus and clarity, relieves migraines, chronic fatigue, depression and mood swings (to name a few). Meditation, and the mental insight it induces is like the drug that cures all aliments. Simply put, meditation is massage for the brain and emotional spirit. Help us find the right class for you!
Suggested $10 donation for Wednesday and Saturdays.
