The psoas muscle, also referred to as your “fight or flight muscle” is responsible for stabilizing the body. This muscle, deep in the center of the body, attaches the lower lumbar vertebrae to the pelvis and legs -structurally connecting the upper and lower body. This is where most people unconsciously hold stress. This class gives you a effective way to relieve lower back pain, neck, shoulder pain, general tension, and emotional anxiety, encouraging the body to return back to it’s natural state of balance.
The class will start with a series of simple yet long held yoga postures aimed at warming up the psoas muscle. All levels of yoga practice are welcomed -modifications can be given if needed.
The second part of the practice, you will be lead on a journey of shaking out and releasing trapped energies from deep within these primal places while being bathed in the warm healing tones of the Tibetan singing bowls lead by Kathy Hamer.
At times throughout the practice and during shavasana, (rest) the singing bowls may be placed on the body or at the head with the intention to heal, align, and gently move stuck energy out creating space within for deeper healing.
 
Cost: $35
Space is VERY Limited! Please sign up at the studio or contact Nicole before purchasing on line.

Recently I had the opportunity to self heal and reflect spending quiet time at the beach. The skies were overcast with an occasional appearance of the sun peeking through a gray cloud. It was quite an experience, being the only soul on a beach miles long, communing with the seagulls, terns, soft sand, the sky and the bluest of blue ocean that seemed to stretch onto infinity.

This time reminded and connected me of the reason why I love working with singing bowls so much. When I speak though the bowls there is need for no words, no language other than that of Liquid Language of Light and of Love. Transformation and reflection possible without every the need to utter a single word. A language first learned early on, rediscovered and recently remembered in the bluest of blue eyes of my beautiful Teacher.

A place so still, so serene in Trust and Faith I could walk up to a young doe, placing my hand on her head, stroking her behind her ears as her mother occasionally looked up from her morning meal.

How to put into words watching the sand dance in my bowl as I play then forming mandalas when it surrenders into silence. The jumping of sea water from my bowl as I place it on my husband’s knee, sore from the joy of years of bouncing twins on it.
