Lee Ann opens a space for self-healing, reflection, relaxation, and rejuvenation.

Singing bowls have been used for centuries as a tool for shifting into meditative states and emotional quietude. Research has found that specific gemstone-infused crystal bowls resonate with powerful healing properties. These bowls were designed to amplify our natural bio-frequencies for healing and balancing at every level. Upon first listening to this extraordinary music, many report an immediate and profound sense of soothing calm, relaxation, and centering.

Give yourself the gift of healing during this very interesting time—elevating your spirit and expanding your consciousness.

Please bring blankets or yoga mat and pillows for comfort to lie on the floor. Chairs available if you prefer to sit.

Restorative yoga targets the body’s deeper connective tissues in order to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props. This passive form of yoga allows you to benefit from gravity and to rest on the props while your parasympathetic nervous system is activated. Restorative yoga provides healing for the body and the mind. It is especially useful when you need to eliminate fatigue and stress that result from your daily activities. Constant practice of restorative yoga will make your body less vulnerable to stress-related illness and help you achieve optimal health.

Please register to hold your space in the class.

What to bring:

    • Water bottle
    • Hand Towel
  • Light blanket to cover – optional
