This workshop is a medley of gentle yoga and guided meditation practice. All students are welcome; suitable for all levels. Relax, increase vitality and enhance well-being!
The full practice will be on a Yoga Bubble. Yoga Bubbles, produced by Waff Studios, is the newest form of exercise and movement equipment. On a giant cloud of your own, each student will drop deeply inward, stimulating their own internal energy through gentle yoga poses. The practice will cultivate an expansion of awareness; both inward and outward.
Guided meditation practice will be supported with hemi-sync sound technology, produced by the Monroe Research Institute. Hemi-sync combines different wavelengths of sound to assist the brain in achieving altered states of consciousness and deep relaxation. Practicing with the mind awake and the body asleep on your personal cloud, this workshop is for anyone looking to restore, heal and experience a relaxation of the total self.
