Grateful Yoga "Deep Winter Sound Healing" on January 20

Grateful Yoga "Deep Winter Sound Healing" on January 20

Join Lisa Devi for a sound healing to celebrate the deep winter! The winter is a natural time for drawing inwards. The season of stillness facilitates self-inquiry and restoration - necessary preparations for the rebirth to come in springtime.

Comfortably seated or reclining, you will have plentiful time to rest, meditate, contemplate and marvel while Lisa creates an evolving soundscape of crystal bowls, flutes and other instruments.

Periods of profound relaxation may alternate with roaming thoughts and vivid imagery. Many experience pleasurable sensations of vibration through and around their body. Some choose to rest for the whole 1 ½ hours, others move or stretch as inspired.

Possible benefits include:

More restorative sleep
Lessening of pain and tension
Less emotional turbulence
Increased focus and clarity in daily life

Please dress comfortably in clothing that allows easy movement. Blankets and cushions provided, but you may wish to bring your own if you like to have lots of padding.

Cost: $35. Sustaining Members save 15%. Sign up here.

Where: Grateful Yoga, 1108 Davis St.
When: January 20, 4pm
