Our bodies are designed as the perfect receptors for sound and Crystal Singing Bowls are the ideal vibrational transmitters that lower the heart-rate, relax brain-wave patterns and reduce respiratory rates. Helping to resolve imbalances on every psychological level. Meditation helps us to connect with our innate ability to concentrate and when combined with sound healing provides a simple and effective way to access the benefits of meditation. The vibration of the bowls brings the recipient into a truly mindful state, while cultivating inner peace regardless of external circumstances. Allowing the observer to arrive at a place of serenity just by listening to the beautiful tones. Creating the ideal environment for relaxation, stress reduction and huge shifts of consciousness.

Yin Yoga Workshop
withChris &Meng at Worcester/Millbury
Sun, Dec 9, 2018 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Yin Yoga is a style of yoga where postures are slow and low. Slow meaning that poses are held from 1 to 5 minutes each and low in that there are no standing poses. The longer holds target the joints, ligaments, fascia and other connective tissues referred to as Yin tissues. Based on Meridian Theory, poses are chosen to focus on the health and balance of energy in organ tissues. Asanas include slow stretching in the deep connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, legs, and feet with some side bending, upper body and twisting work. Yin is a heavily meditative practice where the real work can be sitting in stillness with deep sensations and emotions. We practice turning inward, slowing down the breath, and listening to the mind, body, and heart. Some props may be used to make poses sustainable.
