Next Event: The Movement
Sacred Anointing
- Friday, June 21, 2024 -

Alchemia Studio

1087 Flushing Ave. Brooklyn NY

6:30-8:30pm

Our โœจSacred Anointingโœจ features masterful guidance through:

โ€‹

- Kriya techniques,

- a specifically guided Yoga flow

- live drumming, and

- aligned movement methodologies

guiding you towards a “Pathway of Serenity.” ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธโœŒ๐Ÿฝ


This journey harmonizes the 7 chakras aka our creative energetic vortexes through the spiritual and ancestral processes of physical alchemy. 
Initiated techniques like:


- pranyama (breath work), 
- natya (choreography of aligned somatic movement), 
- trฤแนญaka (single point focus & visual concentration), and 
- meridian tapping therapy (MTT)

โ€‹

facilitates a natural release of psychoactive tryptamine in the brain to reset and *heal* the nervous system on a spiritual, emotional, and physical level.

โ€‹

DANCE and free-form somatic movements are encouraged with our live drumming and DJ sets and it concludes with an ancient kriya bedhana meditation. Crystal initiation is included to align your energy fields. This experience is achieved without external substances. Altering states of consciousness can occur by tuning and tapping in.

 

This unique artistic wellness practice seamlessly blends dance, music, mantra, and the wisdom of Yoga Science to awaken healing within your nervous system and harmonize your subtle body. Drawing from ancient traditions of Tantra & Kriya, this event invites you to confront both dormant and conscious challenges through simple somatic phrases and Kriya techniques, fostering grounding, balance, and wholeness. We look forward to our inward journey with you.

WHAT ARE OTHERS SAYING?

โ€‹

Wellness without The ARTS  is like only accessing one brain hemisphere.

โ€‹

Yoga Science gives us intellectual tools, while Nikki's signature dance class, The MOVEMENT  provides an expression of these teachings through the ARTS, known as Natya.

Why Practice with Nikki?

basquiat-esque art

From Pain to Power...

ARE  YOU  READY  TO MOVE  THROUGH CONSCIOUSNESS?

โ€‹

Nikki's journey has been anything but smooth. She is a survivor of childhood trauma, S.A,. and D.V. and had a challenging upbringing. Battling severe depression and striving to find emotional stability to balance her life,  neither Yoga nor the Arts individually sufficed. Something was intrinsically missing. It was when she combined her passion for the love of Yoga with her gifts in the Arts that true healing began. Thus, this signature methodology was born from pain and shifted into transformative power.
