Restorative Yoga w/ Crystal Bowls

Restorative Yoga w/ Crystal Bowls
w/ Kim Blanc & Heather Keyes
Friday, April 26th @ 5:30 – 7pm • RCY Westford
$30 pre-registration / $40 day of workshop

Overcome the stress of everyday life with ease and grace as you are guided through a series of restorative postures while bathed in the vibrational sound of crystal singing bowls.

Restorative yoga is a practice of slowing down and opening the body through passive stretching and quiet breath.  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 Keyes
Heather first stepped onto her mat craving movement and connection. From that very first class, yoga created a space of quiet and freedom in her body and mind.

Heather has practiced and studied massage and Bodywork for over a decade and is able to draw from her experience to guide students through an intentional flow with space and support to connect to their body, breath, and the world around them.

Heather completed her 200hour training through Boston Yoga School. There, Heather was introduced to Nicole Clark with whom she has studied closely with for the past five years, both in the bodywork and yoga room, delving deeper into the intricacies of the human body, its physiological responses, and healing abilities. Heather has completed The Power of Touch mentorship with Nicole, and Biodynamic Cranial Touch With Giorgia Milne. Heather continues to study under and assist Nicole’s trainings and mentorships both at home and abroad.
