Spring Yoga and Sound Journey

untitled.png

Join Yoga Teacher Abbie Hanson and Singer Davin Youngs in this unique experience of movement and rest with the assistance of spontaneously created live music. What exactly is a sound journey? Think of it like live soundtrack to assist your yoga experience, creating tones and rhythms that aid in movement and restoration. One of our most ancient medicines, music and vibration have the ability to alter our interior landscape as well as reflect the beauty and mystery of the universe. Coupling these ancient traditions with modern technology, Davin will use his voice and crystal bowls to improvise music and sounds that will guide participants on a journey of joy and healing. You will leave refreshed and renewed. This class is open to all levels. Mats provided. Extended savasana and meditation.

Aroma Freedom through Yoga and Oils

yoga-and-oils.jpg

A step-by-step process for identifying and releasing negative thoughts, feelings, and memories that interfere with us reaching our goals and dreams. Through the use of meditation and essential oils we can actually trigger a permanent shift in how we view ourselves and the world.

We will correlate asana with applying oils intentionally to bring about awareness and smell to the brain. With those two factors combined we can work towards emotional balance, dissolving negative thoughts and attitudes, and create a positive outlook so that you can move toward your goals and dreams.

Come and join us for an evening of self -love and mindfulness. Come and work with us to block out those negative thoughts that are holding you captive from receiving freedom to succeed.

Presenter  Anne Heersink-Darby with Young Living and Yoga Instructor Abbie Hanson
