WHAT IS YIN YOGA AND SOUND HEALING?

IT IS A SANCTUARY OF SOUND

Yin

This class focuses on stimulating the connective tissues and joints,
improving the flow of Chi or Prana through these areas. This is
accomplished through passive holding of specific postures for 3 to 5
minutes, using the breath to ease the body further into the pose. The Yin
postures are not difficult to hold for these periods of time and are often
supported by props to allow you to release and relax. Yin yoga is very
meditative and can be a perfect complement to a yang practice (cycling,
running or an active yoga practice). All ages and levels will benefit from
this class.

'New Moon'

You will be guided through a new moon Yin yoga practice where we plant the seeds of our intentions for the next lunar cycle.  This month's Yin with Sound Healing event takes place on the eve of the new moon, which is in Gemini.  Gemini is a sign of perception and intuitive communication and it rules the nervous system, the mind, the chest, lungs, and arms. This class focuses on stimulating the connective tissues and joints, improving the flow of Chi or Prana through these areas. This is accomplished through the passive holding of specific postures for 3 to 5 minutes, using the breath to ease the body further into the pose. The Yin postures are not difficult to hold for these periods of time and are often supported by props to allow you to release and relax.  As you hold postures, experience energy in motion as the cascading sound waves resonate throughout the nervous system, relaxing your entire body. 

Jen Moclair and Dan Bodmer offer a 90-minute practice of healing yoga and immersion in sound.  Jen will lead a thoughtful yin yoga practice that allows you to open deep tissue in your body, and in turn, produces an incredible sense of openness and release, for your body and mind.  Dan is a musician and will use 7 crystal bowls as his instrument. The bowls, crafted of crystal quartz, are each attuned to the chakras in your body. The sound vibrations emitted by these bowls will encompass and permeate your tissues, encouraging your body to harmonize with the balanced vibrations of each key.  If you have never experienced a yin class or sound bath, you are in for an enjoyable and relaxing experience.  Please join us in May from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM.  Our last Yin with Sound Healing class sold out, so reserve your spot soon! $25 (no class cards).
