Mind & Body Special Event: Candlelight Yoga with Crystal Bowl Sound Healing – Friday April 12th at 6 – 7:15pm!

Bring a loved one and join Jack Ryan for a special practice featuring restorative live music. This candlelight yoga class will be slow and peaceful. We will take time to let go of the stress of the daily grind as we connect to the breath, body and mind. Experience a lovingly sequenced journey of intention-based movement complimented by a generous surrender series and Savasana accompanied by the tranquil sound of live, meditative crystal bowl music.

Enchanting and peaceful, crystal singing bowls produce resonate pure tone notes that start soft and grow quite loud. The sound they produce affects the physical body, subtle body, and mind. The sounds of the bowls often feel like they are buzzing or even rushing through you, calming you, and quieting your mind. Truly this is a sui generis experience that cannot be grasped without experiencing it.
