SATURDAY, MAY 29, 202111:00 AM – 12:15 PMWhether you are looking for an opportunity to celebrate all that your body does for you or your feeling the need to unwind and destress, the nurturing practices of Restorative Yoga and Sound Healing can be sweet medicine.RESTORATIVE YOGARestorative Yoga uses supportive poses held for extended periods of time and props like blankets, bolsters, and pillows (for an at-home version) to give the body the opportunity to release and let go. This physical unwinding process brings the mind to meet the body in relaxed awareness.No advanced training or experience is required to practice Restorative Yoga. Students with injuries or physical disabilities are welcome.SOUND HEALINGWhen paired with the comfort of Restorative Yoga, Sound Healing offers the space to physically, mentally, and/or emotionally heal.Singing bowls invite the listener into the present moment with soothing sounds, without attachment to particular notes or songs. The sound of the Gong is other-worldly! It invites the listener to hear ethereal sounds that take you out of the body and mind, while gently vibrating the nervous system for a meditative, massage-like experience.Ride the cosmic sounds and bright crescendos of the gongs to find healing and comfort in sacred silence.WHAT TO BRING- A mask.- Comforts.
