Sound Bath Meditation
Sunday, September 29th, 6:30PM
According to sonic specialist Monte Hansen from the Crystal Ashram near Annapolis MD, “A sound bath is an immersion in sound frequency that cleans your soul.” Leave your rubber ducky at home. Bring your blankie instead, for this super relaxing immersion! According to cutting-edge doctors from Harvard, some of the deepest most profound healing in the body is accomplished with sound frequency.
Join us when Human Activation sound frequency specialist Robert Lee will be playing several of these rare Singing Bowls, some of which are over 200 years old. Hear the amazing story of how the practice was abandoned long ago and rediscovered in modern times. Come experience these gifts from the past in this NON-religious practice of our present. Be rejuvenated or just captivated by this unique musical performance.
Bring your pillows, blankies, and yoga mats and snuggle into the comfort of the tranquil sounds. Feel free to sit, lay, or even stand! Meditating with singing bowls has been known to reduce blood pressure more than guided meditation alone.

Let your little one, in grades K-6 experience the wonder of yoga with other kiddos in a whimsical and easy way. While certainly open to the upper primary grades, this class is most recommended for grades K-4. Each 45-minute class will explore fundamental yoga poses while increasing flexibility, strength, coordination, posture, self-calming techniques and relaxation. Parents are encouraged to drop their kids off and enjoy some time alone.

Oct 20 - Yoga and Art - we will explore different artistic mediums as we practice meditation by making mandalas. We will also move our bodies and create living mandalas by doing group poses that build collaboration and cooperative skills.
NOTE: Nov 3 and Nov 17 will incorporate a CANNED FOOD DRIVE. Yogis are encouraged to bring non-perishable items which we'll donate to those less fortunate than ourselves
Nov 3- Bring on the Sunshine -We'll learn the basic sun salutations and will leave class with a poster we each create so that we can keep practicing these sequences at home
Nov 17 - Yoga Dance - in the class, the kids will learn some yoga “choreography” to go with fun music! They will take home copies of the sequences, as well as names of the songs so they can get moving at home too!
