An opportunity to find out about and try your hand at art journaling as a form of self expression. This is a place to use collage, stencils, paint, pens and words. It can lead to insights into how your mind works, in a fun way, and also open up your creativity as you are creating only for yourself. There is no need to share with another and it is encouraged to let go of your own judgements.

We will begin our afternoon with a short all levels yoga practice to center and let go of too much thinking.

SOUND BATH on SATURDAY MAY 21st at 2.00 - 3.30pm with Debra

 

A Sound or Gong Bath is a deeply-immersive, full-body listening experience that intentionally uses sound to invite gentle yet powerful therapeutic and restorative processes to NURTURE YOUR MIND AND BODY. 

 

Gong baths are a type of inactive meditation, where you “bathe” in the healing vibrations of sound. Using sound as a form of healing dates back to ancient cultures. 

 

A gong bath, or gong meditation, is a form of sound healing designed to offer relaxation, emotional release, and pain relief.​

During a gong bath, participants typically lie down and get comfortable on a yoga mat with blankets and pillows. 

Participants are invited to passively soak up the benefits of the sound.

It is referred to as a ‘bath’ due to participants being immersed in the vibrations of these instruments during a session. 

 

Cost $18

To reserve your place please email Debra at parkeryoga@comcast.com or text on 720 270 9859. Last date to reserve your spot is May 18th.

with Val Viosca L.Ac. LMT, RYT

What is SATYA, you ask? It stands for Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement and was developed by Val's teacher in Santa Fe, a brilliant man and world-renowned yoga teacher named Tias Little. SATYA is a fabulous complement to conventional yoga practice as well as to literally every other form of movement and physical training modality because it helps reeducate the body to move in a more easeful and efficient manner.

 

Take this workshop and you will learn simple but powerful methods for unlocking deep holding patterns in the body so that you can live and move in a pain-free way, which is actually the way that nature intended.
