Session 1: Sunday April 29, 2018
“Full Moon Warriors- Budokon: the Way of the Warriors Spirit with Noosha Mamoudhi”
Noosha Mahmoudi is a scientist, and when she is not at the University opening young minds to her intensive love for nature and the environment, she is teaching a number of classes at La Fitness, from Spinning to Bootcamp to Yoga.
She became fascinated by Budokon Yoga Mixed Martial Arts movement and received her certified by Cameron Shayne, the founder of Budokon Yoga at BDK Academy in Miami. Budokon unique spinal rolling movement coupled with an infusion of martial arts and calisthenics have been the signature of this style.
Noosha believes: yoga is a journey from your mind to your muscles. Yoga is not about a pose (asana), rather, it is the journey that takes us to the pose. The journey that we share together during our practice. The first pose in my yoga practice is called: Empty Mind. As Suzuki, the author of the book “Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind” says: an empty mind is ready to accept and receive knowledge, and it is open to see things as they are. By focusing on yourself, your body, and your movements, you can empty your mind. I use yoga as the venue to share my experience of my Empty Mind with others, and learn about other people experience.

“Singing Crystal Bowl Journey, Meditation with Maria Chavez”
Together, we journey into the vibration energies of the crystalline sounds of quartz bowls opening ourselves to the healing universal sounds that transport us into a musical spiritual language.
We begin with soft circular movements; the whispering breath, chanting as the singing bowls transporting each person into their own journey. The bowls and the intention of the group will guide the meditation, moving organically together in synchronicity as one. The in-between silence of the bowls carries us deep within in stillness and knowing.
Besides Maria’s healing sounds, she is also a minister with the Universal Life Church, a Reiki practitioner, and Cranial Sacral Therapist. She has taught Reiki Levels 1 and 2 and is the Director of Indigenous Ways Miami at La Tierra. La Tierra sponsors Native American Events like Sweat Lodges, drum making workshops, and ceremonies and has worked with the Deering Estate in the past.
