Nicole & Katherine join together again Shake & Release Workshop.

About your Body:
In yoga, the hips are thought to be the baggage center for negative emotions. By releasing this area we may help to relieve lower back pain as well as free other tension filled areas of the body and mind- this may be intense for some people.
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.

About the Workshop:
This workshop will start with a series of vigorous yoga postures aimed at warming up the psoas muscle. All levels of yoga practice are welcomed and modifications will 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.

All throughout the practice and during shavasana,(rest) the singing bowls will 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.

The bowls will be filled with warm water infused with the magical, high vibration essential oil blend made especially for this workshop.

This workshop will be a blend of Yin Yoga & Restorative Yoga blessed with the gentle soothing tones of the ancient Tibetan singing bowls.

Yin yoga is based on the principles of Yin & Yang, where Yin is more passive, calming, slow and steady. Yin yoga is a wonderful practice for quieting the active mind by staying in postures longer to stretch the connective tissue. It is a system of long-held, passive floor poses, often using props.

A Restorative practice is very passive, props are used to support the body as we stay in postures for several minutes, enabling the body & mind to completely relax.

Nicole will guide you through a series of postures meant to open and release fascial tissue (aka connective tissue) while Kathy plays the Tibetan singing bowls on and around you. Each bowl emits a frequency to a specific chakra, or energy center of the body. Our bodies resonate with that frequency and raises our vibration to match that of the bowls. These

powerful vibrations open up the energy centers of the body and balance the energies between the centers.

Cost: $35
