Ayurvedic Dosha Assessment / Consultation
Many Indians do not draw any distinctions between Yoga and Ayurveda. Nevertheless, they may still refer to them as “sister sciences” as they are completely related and each helps the other. Ayurveda is a holistic system of medicine that emphasizes prevention. However it is not in a generalized way (as in western medicine) but in relation to one’s unique personal mental and physical constitution - as it falls uniquely within the frame of the 3 interrelated types, called Doshas. Its aim is to provide guidance regarding food, exercise (including dosha-specific asanas) and lifestyle, so that healthy people can stay healthy and folks with challenges can improve their health.
In our session we will assess what your dosha/constitution is, and then according to the dosha (and any other insights shared about ones health history, exercise and diet challenges) recommendations will be given on a number of topics. Furthermore you will be freed from the non-sense that is so often propagated in one the common one for all models - that “everyone” needs to eat this way and exercise that way, and do asanas this way, and meditate that way , etc. Rather, You will be better able to assess for yourself what is best for You!
1 hour / $75
Individuals who are looking to meditation for help with personal challenges will be better assisted by taking the Spiritual Companioning service listed toward the end of this menu. Just be sure to let me know that your main request is training in meditation and we will integrate it most effectively into the SC session.

Yoga For Your Eyes / The Art of Seeing:
WARNING! DO NOT GET LASIK EYE SURGERY WITHOUT FIRST TAKING THIS COURSE! If you have already had the surgery take this course ASAP if you don’t want your eyes to go back to the way they were!
See how I improved my own vision and the vision of many others, from a need for corrective lenses to no lens at all! The techniques are also very, very, very meditative and very, very, very stress reducing!
Even if your vision does not become more clear (although it definitely will) you will still enjoy the many other relaxing, meditative and restorative benefits.
90min private individual session for $75
45min follow up sessions / $30 each or $75 for 3 sessions
NOTE: Basic improvement in vision may only require personal practice of the lessons learned in one 90 min session. More serious eye problems will usually take a minimum of 1 to 5 follow up sessions.)

Salsa Dancing (Includes learning Merengue, Cha-cha, Bachata)
Women usually learn to Salsa well enough to be out on the dance floor in less than 5 classes. Men take anywhere from 5 to 15. As for Merengue, women can learn in just there first class and men get the confidence that they can have it down in about 3 to 6 classes. (At all Salsa dance places Merengue is played almost as often as Salsa, and many prefer to dance Merengue over Salsa. Cha ch and Bachata is played about 1/5th of the time as well. -The emphasis on the first class is Merengue, and may continue with that if the student wishes. The remaining 4 classes will emphasize Salsa.
5 class minimum / $100 (Remember! price is the same for an individual as it is for a couple or a group)

THE GURU WITHIN …???
PROBLEM / CRISIS SOLVING thru
Are you looking for Spiritual Growth?
YOUR CHALLENGE IS YOUR GREATEST TEACHER!!!
Have you been suffering with an issue for too long? Or have you even tried traditional modes of help and healing to no avail? This process uses the Virtue / Chakra Card Meditations I developed myself, as well many concepts in The Virtues Project, the concept of the True Guru as expressed by Alan Watts, the Art of True Listening illuminated by Eckhart Tolle, and the process of Person Centered Therapy -developed by the master of the process- Carl Rogers. The process very often Heals and/or Solves the challenge(s) one is having. In the least, it Enlightens, Empowers, and gives an Optimistic Direction.
A session can last 1 to 2 hours, with one session usually being enough. If 2 hours is not enough time, we will end at a good place and schedule another session as soon as possible -but this is a rare occurrence.
Be sure that you have at least 2 hours to devote to the process. The cost is the same even if it takes up the entire time. $50.00
If another session is required there will not be a charge, but a donation to our non-profit organization ~Virtues First, Inc.~ would be greatly appreciated!
All classes can be held at CYS (usually only during afternoon hours and certain weekends)
or at your location for an additional $15 per trip.
