6pm Drum Circle with Matt Mikeska
Matt has been playing drums and exploring rhythms from around the world for over 20 years. A husband and father who both owns Ravaila’s Restaurant in Blairsville and acts as a coordinator of community outreach and sits on the board of directors of My New Leaf, a non-profit recovery community organization, that serves those suffering with substance use disorder and their families. Matt has used drumming and rhythm to not only bring a greater sense of peace and connection to his own life but also seeks to bring the transformative power of the drum to his community. Having facilitated drum circles and rhythm workshops large and small at events and organizations in our area for years he hopes to continue to offer these services to the community.
Rhythm is what gives from to the boundless spirit and energy of all that is within and beyond our human experience. From the movement of celestial bodies, to the changing seasons, the repeating cycles within nature and the beating heart of each one of us. Rhythm is a common thread that runs through everything, down to the smallest atoms that are vibrating wit the beat of creation. The drum, being far more than merely an instrument is a tool that is simple and accessible to anyone who approaches. The drum acts as a point of contact between the rhythm within and the universal rhythm.
The hustle of motherhood often leaves you disconnected from your self and your own needs. This monthly class will offer mother’s a time and place to stay connected to their true selves and allow space for their own self care. The group will also provide a space for connection with other moms and allow for development of an additional support system.
The class is great for anyone despite where they may be in their journey through motherhood. (No prior yoga experience is required) We will have a monthly topic that we will explore through various means including but not limited to: journaling, meditation, pranayama (breath work), asana (physical practice), and council (sharing circle). Participants will then have the opportunity to take the monthly topic into their daily routine to create new habits to stay connected to self. The leaders will maintain flexibility in our monthly topic based off the groups need.
The class will meet throughout the year on the 2nd Saturday of every month from 10:30am-12pm in the Lower Level of Mommy Gear in Ligonier, PA.
Cost for the class is $25 per person (cash only if you choose to pay day of class)
