Dissolving Into Sound

Wednesday, June 20th, 8pm-9:30pm.

Dissolve into Sound’ returns to Yoga Desa for an evening of sound vibration, relaxation and cleansing rejuvenation. ‘Sound’ is an ancient healing art with a history dating back to the Egyptians, Confucians and Pythagoreans who claimed that sound could ‘tune the soul’ and affect our cosmological and social worlds.

‘Dissolve into Sound’ brings back this art form. We enter into our practice through a grounding meditation, setting intention and some gentle movement to prepare the mind and body to receive the sounds. Using Planetary Gongs, Tibetan bowls, Crystal bowls and other instruments, a sound scape is created of layering sound frequencies and moments of silence.

This sound experience coupled with intention creates a powerful vehicle of transmutation.  Calcified energy patterns are cleared.  A meditative state is triggered, suspending the chatter of the mind.  A state of deep relaxation is induced, activating the body’s innate healing capacities and sound vibrations strengthen and stimulate the nervous and immune system.  Sound immersion promotes mental clarity, physical rejuvenation bringing the body and mind into harmony.

With Jess Lakin (Gong Avatar & Kundalini Yoga Teacher) and Karina Gian Atma (Kundalini Yoga Teacher,  Reiki Practitioner & Trainer).  $20. To reserve your spot email jesslakinyoga@gmail.com

Waves: A weekly drop-in 5Rhythms dance class with Kate Shela

Kate’s last class of the Summer is Tuesday June 26 and she will resume teaching on Tuesday September 4.

 

Masayo Benoist and Daniela Peltekova will teach the Tuesday night classes from July 3 – August 28.



Please note that classes will have to be paid for in cash or check directly to these teachers and the series of 10 will not be applicable.

The 5Rhythms are a philosophy, perspective, performance art and a dynamic practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor, reaching across all languages and age groups to transform suffering into art, art into awareness and awareness into action.
The 5R are: Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness- Together they create a wave of energy.Each 5Rhythms class is an opportunity to drop into the first level of the dynamic practice of Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms and to allow your body, heart and mind to be physicalized through your muscles and bones. This class is a disciplined laboratory of enquiry in an intimate dance space.
$20 per class and $180 for series. Valid for 6 months.
