Sound Bath with Ann Sensing
October 15th | 7PM-8PM
Join us for a deeply calming sound bath with Ann Sensing. Sound Baths are a meditative, multisensory, and unique experience in which participants are bathed in the vibration of various wind and percussion instruments while lying down. Unlike other forms of meditation, Sound Baths focus on ambient sounds, rather than silence or a guided practice to reach a new state of tranquility.
This lie-down meditation encourages deep relaxation, allowing you to unplug and find release. We encourage you to bring a mat, a blanket, pillows, eye coverings, or whatever helps you to settle into rest.
All are welcome to our space to enjoy the benefits. Whether you are curious about sound meditation or meditation in general, seeking to deepen your practice, or are just in need of an evening to reset, Ann Sensing will be your guide into a transformative practice of sound healing.
Save your spot, this event is likely to sell out!

Yoga Therapy with Ashley Shelley, LPC-MHSP and 200RYT, is an integrative offering that empowers individuals to connect mind, body, and spirit. This is not like your regular power flow class, you will be guided through gentle and intentional movement with a focus on learning from your body and the experience. Ashley’s curated yoga flows include grounding and centering breathwork, prompts for processing what may arise, guided meditations to promote stillness and calm, and an offering to carry you forward.
This class is not psychotherapy or counseling, but an alternative route to tap into ‘you’ like never before. We encourage the use of your own yoga props such as a mat, bolster, blanket, and/or blocks.

Self-Study with Tarot Cards
October 23rd | 5:30pm-7pm
Spooky season is upon us! Time to allow your curiosity to wander to the realm of the mystical. Massey Armistead, intuitive healer, tarot reader, and poet will introduce us to the practice of tarot card reading. Tarot cards can be used as a useful tool for self-study, strengthening intuition, mindfulness, and connection beyond the physical world to the higher self. Not knowing where to begin is not a problem (what the heck are major and minor arcana anyway?) Massey will provide an introduction of tarot, including the meanings and understandings of the cards and archetypes, how ego and intuition play into the reading, and how to further your self-study with all this information.
You will have the opportunity to learn with your own deck of tarot cards, bringing about a deeper understanding of the archetypes and what they mean. Bonus: Massey is giving a group reading at the conclusion of the event. Grab your friends and join us for a fun evening of diving into deeper intuition.

Are you looking for authentic connection, but the thought of diving back into the dating pool has you wishing for floaties? Maybe it feels like no one will ever measure up to your expectations? Maybe you don’t even know what to expect? Dating can be confusing and exhausting, but has the power to teach you so much about yourself and what you want in life. In Dating 101, Amy Jackson (LCSW) and Claire Price(CHC) will be in your corner, helping you learn about yourself and relationships, thus helping you uncover the courage to take on dating…and have a little fun while you’re at it.
You will gain the tools you need to look for someone with compatible values, without abandoning yourself in the process. We will encourage you to create a fulfilling life on your own before inviting someone else in, and empower you to know your worth when you do. Amy will help you identify your specific attachment style and what that means for getting out there while Claire will challenge you to expand your avenues for meeting new people. Get ready to get out of your comfort zone, and don’t be afraid to fail. A bad date makes for a good story!
If you’re interested in working on your authentic self, understanding your own values, and connecting with other singles along the way, this may be the group for you. This group is open to people of all genders, sexualities, and backgrounds. As long as you are single and have an open mind, we have a place for you!
Group size is limited to 10 people.
Weekly or once-off payment options available.
November 11TH | 6PM-7:30PM
Here comes the holiday season: friendsgivings, tacky holiday sweater parties, holiday work parties, time with family, last minute gift-shopping, and your mom’s notoriously nosy questions… phew! Are you ready for it all, or does the thought of it leave your tinsel in a tangle? Do you want to let go of dysfunctional holiday habits and find a little more balance? Or maybe you need some help navigating the holidays with new family dynamics. There is nothing wrong with wanting to approach the holiday season a little differently this year.
In our Holiday Survival Workshop, Amy Gartenberg (LPC) is going to show you how to create a game plan for this holiday season, in a way that prioritizes your mental wellness. Stress and anxiety don’t have to be the ghosts of Christmas’ present when you give yourself the gifts of boundaries, self-compassion, and emotional intelligence.
Bonus: Before the workshop, we’ll be opening our doors for you to come check out our space, walk away with our gift guide with some exclusive discounts, and mingle with The Happy Hour community.
December 11TH | 2:30PM-4:30PM
Are you wondering how 2021 is coming to a close when you’re not quite sure you’ve even processed 2020 yet? You’re not alone! The last two years have been a catalyst for tremendous growth and change for all of us, and getting through them is an achievement in itself.
Join us at Hot Yoga of East Nashville for an intimate workshop with Tonia Dixon, LPC, who will lead the group discussion as we create space to reflect and process the good, the bad and the ugly. This workshop will help you to let go of what no longer serves you, clearing your mind and making room to embrace the possibility of the new year.
We will start the workshop with a restorative flow led by certified yoga instructor and energy work practitioner, Kim Breese. Kim guides with the intention to support and uncover the peaceful place that resides only within so that you can look back on this past year with openness, curiosity and kindness. Because as they say, hindsight is 20:20.
