Yin and Sound Healing workshop

Yin yoga is an incredibly powerful, transformational and imperative compliment to our more familiar yang yoga styles (such as Vinyasa, Astanga, 26&2). In these more active styles of yoga we exert force, build internal heat, and contract our muscles. In Yin Yoga we relax the muscles to create space and strength in the joints and ligaments, as well as achieve a deeper stretch within the connective tissue of the muscles. The practice of yin yoga will help increase flexibility, relieve stress, promote better sleep, as well as aid in the balancing of the body’s energy system for overall better physical, mental, and emotional health.
Sound Baths are a combination of restorative yoga, meditation and a sacred sound concert. They have been shown to reduce stress, enable deep relaxation, enhance creativity, possibly uplift the spirit and help with insomnia. Sound Meditations slow down your brainwaves and guide you into a deep meditative state or altered state of consciousness. Participants lay down comfortably and then are “immersed” in the sounds, vibrations and harmonics of the instruments. Gongs, Himalayan bowls, crystal singing bowls, tuning forks and shamanic percussion instruments are played in a clinically tested, therapeutic sequence to maximize benefits. No previous knowledge or experience is required. Sound is a very accessible form of meditation where benefits are usually experienced right after the first session. As my teacher likes to say, “simply lay down and bathe in the sound.”

Discover Joy in Backbends with Matt Giordano

Sun Date: 12/5/2021 From: 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

Discover Joy in Backbends. The back-bending practice can be some of the trickiest poses in Yoga, and can seem like either something you just can or cannot do. While some people naturally have more flexibility in an arched position others have to take a more studied approach. In this workshop we will go over techniques that will bring joy and ease to your back bending practice. Those that are less flexible will focus on techniques to unlock tension. Those that have an established back bending practice will be able to take themselves to a whole new level using precision in their approach!
