Restorative Yoga Nidra w/ Singing Bowls :: Tuesdays, 7:30-8pm
nina be was inspired to create this class during a visit to Stonehenge in 2010 while staying in a sound bath healer’s home as she was researched the land of her heritage and the eco-systems of the Findhorne community in northern Scotland. Sometimes called a‘sound bath’, these sessions are supported by the soothing vibrations of ancient/crystal singing bowls, to relax different aspects of a person that may be stressed. Gentle guided techniques for breathing, body relaxation and halting the busy mind allow rest and revitalization of the mindbody, releasing patterns of tension. Whether you are a seasoned athlete, recovering from an injury or surgery, or have recently decided it’s time to bump the self-care routine up a notch, this class will be highly restorative & supportive. Everyone is invited to come in and find a comfortable way to lay on the ground or sit for the session. This time is meant to be magically beautiful open level class.
