Sound Healing (60 mins) Through the awareness of energy there is a vibration which touches every part of our physical being. We can understand the power of energy to heal down to the cellular level. The human organism is a complex set of frequencies that create electro-matic or energy fields. When we listen to singing bowls, the vibrations created can shift the vibrations within oneself. The body and the brain waves synchronized with the external sound encouraging the body into a state of deep relation.
Open/Free Flows (60 mins)- A practice that combines all of the teachings of yoga to meet the energy in the room.
