The class focuses on vibrational and meditative aspects of yoga. Sound meditation paired with breath awareness heals and connects all 8 branches of yoga while promoting healthy emotions, and rejuvenating the mind, body, and spirit!
We prepare for full relaxation by setting intentions, lightly stretching the body and offering guided meditation. You will use bolsters and cushions to create a safe reclined posture as we transition into breathing exercises to help release toxins.
The experience is complemented with crystal bowl sounds and chimes to travel deeper within to heal. We finish with deep breath work to purify and rejuvenate. After class students are nourished, peaceful, and aligned.
We suggest enjoying this open level (new students and advanced are welcome) with bare feet! Students are encouraged to wear loose fitting clothes and to bring an extra layer for comfort. Essential oils will be offered to clear nasal congestion and encourage deep breathing.
