Meditate. Melt. Merge.
Hosted at our Midtown Studio at 474 Broadway, Kingston
Meditation with sound and yoga is one universal path to Self Realization, accessible to anyone, and appropriate for people of any religion or spiritual aspiration.
All life is relationship, and in this experience we will explore the dynamics between the practice of Yin Yoga and the therapeutic Sound Bath. By uniting our emotional, spiritual and physical bodies in a meditative way, these two up and coming modalities will help you come back to who you truly are: a vibrational being, in tune.
The practice of Yin Yoga is a slow and deep. Based on the principles of stillness, it encourages students to listen to their body’s individual needs. A yin practice guides students past the muscle and into the connective tissue, joints and areas of tension that are being held in deep layers of the body. Students will learn an intuitive approach to working with the body that cultivates listening, facilitates the release of long held tensions and offers genuine relaxation. Simple postures on the floor will be practiced to relax your muscles in order to stimulate the ligaments, joints and layers of fascia. No yoga experience necessary!
Sound has been utilized in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. Whether through the use of mantras, medicine melodies or the use of interval and frequency, these various techniques all have the same intention: to move us from a place of imbalance to a place of balance. Each human being is in essence a vibration. The molecule sings, the heart of the atom is tone, and the human has a sound body which comes in and out of tune. Enabling the soul to remember its true divine self, its spirit self, we can re-merge with all that is. Finding connection and balance with all that is, we find ourselves in wholeness and perfect health.
