We welcome you to a practice that will wring out and renew!
This workshop will begin with yogic breathing (pranayama) to help clear out carbon dioxide from the lungs as well as stimulate organs of digestion. Next we will explore Maha uddiyana Bandha which activates the Manipura Chakra and awakens the "digestive fire". It has a stimulating effect on metabolism, strengthens the immune system and is helpful for diabetes. As we move sweetly into a sweaty heart-centered vinyasa class, many parts of the body will be pushed, pulled, twisted, or folded to help facilitates the removal of waste products such as carbon dioxide, lactic acid and lymphatic fluid from the deep tissues and extremities of the body. We will finish with an extended savasana as the gong vibrations wash away stale energy so that we may continue to open the heart and settle the mind & body.
The Gong is a therapeutic instrument that raises an individuals internal vibratory frequency. The layers of sound produced by the gong help reduce stress, stimulate the glandular system, and serves as a powerful energetic source to break up emotional, physiological and spiritual blockages. "Sound & music are nutrients for the nervous system. The gong resonates all cells of the body as it travels through skin, muscles, bones, and the subtle body." In this experience, practitioners will settle into Savasana as sound waves ripple through the room, bodies, and energy channels to make space for what is new, fresh, and needed to move forward- full of love, strength, and compassion!
