Alchemy offers a diverse variety of guided meditations, each with the intention of attaining deeper levels of inner peace. She will gently walk you through each session, and each class welcomes new and experienced meditators.

About Alchemy Blevins

Alchemy has been a facilitator of healing ever since she began studying massage therapy in February, 2011. Several months into her schooling she was introduced to the concept of energy healing, and instantly found her niche. Over the next several years she began studying and practicing a variety of healing modalities, including Reiki, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Craniosacral therapy, the chakra system, dowsing, Solfeggio tuning forks, and meditation. She combines all of these techniques, and calls her signature work “Intuitive Energy Balancing”. In July of 2016, she attended her first Vipassana, clocking in over 100 hours of meditation over 11 days.

Kirtan is a group practice of singing, chanting mantra, playing instruments, and meditation. The healing vibration of sound can help ease our minds into a meditative state and open our hearts. No experience necessary, just come, be free and help raise the vibration!

Please bring musical instruments and songs to share.

About Nikki

Nikki has been a yogi ever since her first class, where she rolled a mat out in the back corner of the room with no idea what she was getting into. She calls it “Love at first Savasana”.


Restorative Yoga Saturdays at 3:00 p.m. 

….the ultimate relaxation experience

Restorative yoga is a nurturing style of yoga that is intended to help achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation through longer held postures.  With the use of various props to get into postures without any strain or discomfort, the body can fully soften and find a deeper more soothing stretch. Restorative yoga aids in resetting the body both physically and mentally by combining breath and body awareness. This class will have you feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to start a new week. Open to all levels of yoga practitioners.  Private Restorative Yoga Group Classes are available, please contact yogawestcommunity@gmail.com to request more information.

“State of Slim” Exercise Support Group

This is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle.  Exercise is key to making the program successful.  This support group focuses on the exercise part.  This support group is facilitated by Heidi Kitchen, ACE Certified Personal Trainer to give you fresh, inspirational ideas of how you can incorporate exercise on the flexible plan every day of the week.  Each meeting counts as 15 minutes of daily movement in Phase 1.  


Inspirational Cinema

“Heal for Free”

Friday, May 5, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.

If you are an Earthling, this film has an important and uplifting message for YOU. Featuring Apollo Astronaut, Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Canadian Broadcaster, Dr. David Suzuki, Internet Health Guru, Dr. Joseph Mercola, the film informs us about the little-known fact that the Earth’s surface emits a constant stream of electrons, which neutralize the disease-causing free radicals in our bodies, which cause painful, chronic, inflammatory conditions. Clinical trials at the University of Florida at Gainesville have shown that such chronic inflammation can be improved or reversed in 95% of all cases by the regular practice of Grounding and/or of using Grounding resources.

There will  be two FREE Nepali Folk Dance Demonstrations at Yoga West:

Friday, April 28 at 7:00 p.m.

There are several levels of Classical Indian Dance.  One starts from the general/basic level.  In this form of dance, specific hand and leg positions, facial expression and movements are set to classical dance music. This is a meditative, yet active, form of dance, and we will start at the beginning and learn the movements that go with a dance song.  Mastering components of dance will assist the dancer in self-expression, flexibility, balance, self-confidence and quieting the mind. It conveys a mood and is spectacular to watch.  Come share with me in this rare opportunity to experience this dance form for yourself.

SerendipiDANCE Saturday, May 20 at 12:30 PM

Inspired by Anne Green Gilbert’s Dance Concepts and the work of modern dance pioneer, Rudolf von Laban, each move has been carefully crafted to highlight dance concepts that support brain development, reduce stress, and inspire healthy families.

Join your host Sarahndipity and let these wild animals, from around the world, show you how to turn fun into funky!

This is a family-friendly, all-ages event.  No dance experience is required.  Parent participation is requested.  As always, bring a water bottle so you can hydrate.  You’ll feel so great!
