Yoga, Breath, and Sound
Treat yourself to a morning of deep relaxation. The stress and strain of life can lead to a buildup of tension that weighs us down and keeps our bodies and minds from functioning at optimal levels. This event will include gentle yoga and breathing exercises to open your body and mind. Let's release unnecessary tension, allowing your body to function in a more natural, relaxed state, enhancing its ability to heal. We will transition seamlessly from yoga into an extended lying-down sound relaxation/meditation accompanied by ancient Tibetan bowls. The sound vibrations of the bowls will wash away any worries and concerns, leaving you feeling light, clear, peaceful, and refreshed.
Bring yoga mat if you have one.
Facilitated by Andy McDonald and Niko.
