Restorative Yoga w/ Crystal Bowl Sound Bath
w/ Kim Blanc & Heather Keyes
Saturday, April 14th @ 1:30 – 3pm
$40 pre-registration / $50 day of workshop
Overcome the stress of everyday life with ease and grace as you are guided through a series of restorative postures while simultaneously being bathed in the vibrational sound of crystal singing bowls.
Restorative Yoga is the practice of centering the body and the breath, aligning the physical and mental by practicing stillness or gentle movement for extended periods of time. Using blankets, bolsters and blocks to assist in longer holds, restorative yoga gives you a sense of peace and calm in an otherwise busy world. This gentle, therapeutic flow provides students the space and encouragement they need to slow down and allow the breath to support the body. Give your body the safe space and downtime it needs to calm the nervous system and find a sense of peace in stillness. Hands on healing will be available.
As you relax in a restorative posture you will be submerged in the healing sound and vibration of quartz crystal singing bowls. The binaural rhythm (two tones at slightly different frequencies playing in unison) of the bowls will entrain your brain waves into a deep meditative and relaxed state. The sound waves of the bowls are known to relax the nervous system, decrease blood pressure and enhance sleep and memory.
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” Nikola Tesla
Kim began practicing yoga in 2009. In 2011, she earned her 200 hour yoga teacher certification from master teacher and author Rolf Gates. She has a strong personal practice which includes both the physical and spiritual components of yoga. Kim believes that anyone can do yoga and that everyone benefits, both physically and mentally, from a consistent practice. She appreciates all styles of yoga, but is mostly drawn to the Ashtanga method, which creates strength and flexibility while cultivating a quiet and peaceful mind. With a strong focus on alignment, Kim’s Vinyasa classes are firmly rooted in the Ashtanga tradition. Kim’s workshops and trainings include time spent with: David Swenson, Rolf Gates, Richard Faulds, Jonathan Faust, Carolyn Sundeen, Jacqui Bonwell, Sharon Saltsberg, Krishna Das and Stephen Cope. Kim is also a Level I & Level II Certified Usui Reiki Practitioner and loves the opportunity she has to help others heal their bodies and minds through the practice of yoga and meditation.
Heather first came to yoga tired, stressed, and feeling disconnected from her body. Yoga created a space of quiet and freedom in body and mind that propelled her on a life-changing path to a healthier, more balanced lifestyle. Heather draws from her knowledge as a massage therapist to guide students through an intelligent flow with attention to anatomical alignment. Recognizing the importance of the mind-body connection, Heather’s classes create a space that enables students to be firmly grounded in the present moment on and off the mat. Heather was certified through the Boston Yoga School and completed The Power of Touch mentorship with Nicole Clark.
