First Sunday's of the month. Vibrational healing has been used throughout the ages in many ancient healing traditions throughout the world and is now beginning to be recognized in scientific circles. The vibrations of the healing gong can deepen the effect of meditation and help to expand awareness. According to yogic science, the gong is the vibrational sound of creation. The gong, can help to eliminates diseased cells, and it can help to re-pattern the gray matter of the brain. The frequency can help to balance the meridians, the parasympathetic nervous system, and chakras to create a very deep relaxation response. The sound from the gong has the ability to release tension and the torrent of thoughts that block healing.
Mervin Alphonse will play a 34” Wuhan gong and Philip Clampitt will play a 32" Paiste Symphonic gong in the cozy studio, generating robust vibrations that cascade into the body like a waterfall, creating a very unique healing experience. The class will start with gentle yoga, followed by the gong experience, and finish with a Kundalini Yoga meditation.
Crystal Bowl Sound Therapy using Singing Bowls have been used for thousands of years for spiritual, meditative and healing purposes. These special instruments are now starting to become recognized within scientific circles.
The body is 70% water being an excellent conductor for sound and vibrational energy. The vibrational soundwaves of the quartz singing bowls are said to attune the body at a cellular level by affecting the body’s many crystalline structures throughout the whole body. Crystal Bowl Sound Therapy can affect every part of your being, including the gene expression.
According some experts, MRI scans show that the sound of the crystal bowls activate more parts of the brain and neurotransmitters, positively affecting moods and pain, the same as some prescription drugs. Benefits may include reduced anxiety, improved memory, better sleep, migraine relief, relief from depression, and anti-cancer effects.
Philip will play 8 quartz crystal singing bowls with each bowl being tuned to the frequency of each of the 7 chakras, and one for the aura, to bring your body's energy system into balance. Workshop with begin with a small amount of light breath work (pranayama) followed by a 30 min sound bath. Class will close with a short meditation and crystal charged water will be served from inside a singing bowl at the end to deepen the healing effects.

I invite you to join me for a cozy, healing Sunday evening yoga class with hands on energy work, essential oils and crystal bowl sound healing. A perfect way to ground and restore!
Essential Oils are nature's oldest form of medicine. They are potent healing agents for emotional, spiritual and physical health. I'll use oils throughout the class to expand the restorative benefits of your yoga practice and relaxation.
We'll practice 55 minutes of restorative yoga with gentle touch aromatherpy, ending with 20 minutes of sonic crystal bowl sound therapy.
Do you ever feel like your voice is stifled or your personal expression is blocked? Would you like to be more social or more emotionally expressive in your everyday life? Do you find it challenging deciding what stories you’d like to share and what they really mean? The Journey Circle is about creating space to celebrate our individuality and connectedness through personal stories. When we move together, an unbroken circle, to listen and to hear, as unity and individuality come alive. Through mutual expression and receptivity, we empower ourselves and others to live fully. We believe that life is a journey worth sharing (All proceeds go to the Journey Circle Nonprofit)
THERE’S SOMETHING SACRED ABOUT THE MOUNTAINS No matter how long you’ve been practicing yoga, a cool lush mountain yoga retreat will jumpstart the reset button for you. Why the mountains? Crystal Olry, owner of Ekah Yoga in Bloomington, Indiana — tells us: “I was born and raised in northern Indiana where the land is so flat you can see for miles and miles down the crop dusters’ trail, and something about this has a grounding effect that has brought stability into my life.” But there’s something so innately peaceful about the mountains. To me they help me find time for re-patterning, and then expanding. It becomes very intuitive to draw strength from the mountains and find calm within when we stand firm in Tadasana, or step into strength in Virabradasana. And the lights from below illuminate our aura, lighten our hearts, as we feel a balance between grounding and expanding. Dates: March 10-15th (5 day) or March 10-17th (7 day) with Sloth Sanctuary inclusion.
