Relax into the New Year with this delightful musical yoga experience!
Journey up through the chakras as you relax in restorative poses, accompanied by live music that recalls the subtle sounds of each chakra. You will be gently guided into a pose for each chakra, accompanied by visualizations, affirmations, readings, and live music. The musical note for each chakra will be based on Swami Kriyananda’s system, and a different instrument will be played in the key of that note at each chakra, to evoke the subtle sound of each chakra as explained by Paramhansa Yogananda. For example, at the second chakra, you will experience the sound of a flute in the key of A, the instrument sound and note for that chakra as set forth by our great teachers.
In Restorative Yoga, you will be invited surrender into each pose, supported by blankets and pillows. The poses are held for a longer time than regular yoga, to allow the body to truly experience its benefits. Restorative yoga calms the nervous system, stimulates the immune system, and relaxes and refreshes you at a very deep level. The teachers will help you arrange blankets and find a comfortable, fully supported position. You can simply close your eyes, relax and let go.
Class size is limited to 10 so we can provide individualized attention. Be sure to register early to reserve your spot!
Please wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing and bring a pillow and blanket.
Teachers: Andra Denslow & Susan Kjesbo, are both Certified Ananda Yoga Therapists. Additionally, Andra is an experienced sound healer, Certified Music Practitioner®, and performing musician. Her journey of healing with sound and music has taken her into hospitals and hospice with her harp, into one-on-one sound sessions with clients, and into playing live music on harp, flute and tanpura for the deep relaxation portion of her yoga classes. Andra enjoys sharing the pure love of the heart in the form of sound vibration and music. Come join her!
No yoga experience required – this is a fun way to experience one of the most deeply relaxing yoga practices available.
