Sound Healing and Yin Yoga    

Sunday, December 12

9-10:00 am

Experience the powerful synergy of sound and yoga amongst the picturesque gardens. Sound healing immerses you in a sea of vibrations that gently coax your mind and body into balance. Yin is a slower-paced style of yoga that incorporates longer holds while seated or lying down, for the purpose of relaxation and restoration. Together, they are the perfect pair to help you deepen your stretches and your sense of inner-peace! Join us in this rich sensory experience of beautiful sights, sensations and sounds. Bring your own mat. The class is outside on grass with limited shade, so please also bring a towel for damp grass and sunscreen.
