The ideal combination of sound therapy, yin/restorative yoga and massage to maximize your healing potential.
Ryan will be creating a resonant soundscape throughout the workshop and Chelsey will be leading yoga and giving personalized massages based on the Rolfing® method of Structural Integration.
Sound has the potential to be used as a healing modality. Ryan will talk about the science of how it can affect our brain, body, and emotional state. During the workshop various instruments will be played including crystal & Himalayan singing bowls, shruti box, Biosonic tuning forks, harmonium w/ mantra singing, Koshi chimes, UFO drum, and Tuvan throat singing.
Yin yoga involves deep, long-held stretches of the muscles, nerves and fascia to lengthen the entire body, decompressing joints and improving circulation. Restorative yoga induces a parasympathetic "relaxation response" to soothe and heal the nervous system and emotions. This is similar to what is experienced during deep sleep.
Personalized mini-massages will be offered while you are in the yoga poses to complement their effects. Depending on the individual, these may be subtle and gentle or strong myofascial releases. You can always provide feedback as to the level and quality of touch that you want, or opt out of this portion if you'd prefer not to be touched.
Move Mindfully, Release Tension, Restore Deeply.
This experience is open to all.
