Yin Yoga + Sound Bath with Wendy Schmitt and Heather Furtney
This Yin Yoga Sound Bath combines two effective methods for sinking deep into prolonged restorative postures. Heather will guide you through a Yin Yoga class while Wendy plays the gong, alchemy crystal bowls, chimes, and drums – bathing you in sound.
THEME: One door closes and another door opens. Slow down and soften. Reconcile the changes that are happening on the outside and create space to root down the changes on the inside with a Yin Yoga sequence during a Sound Bath. Drop the baggage and stretch open for more bounty.
Yin, based on Chinese philosophies and Taoist principles, is a slow-paced practice that focuses on holding each individual pose for long periods of time, providing space to turn inward and tune into new depths of the body and mind. By receiving the multitude of sounds, vibrations, resonant tones and frequencies from gongs, crystal and Tibetan bowls, drums and chimes, the overactive mind will slowly release giving way to new depths of relaxation and restoration. In the longer holds the body will respond to a slow steady load allowing a subtle release that takes you deeper into the pose. The depth is a response of the tissues lengthening, hydrating, and becoming more pliable; lengthening and strengthening of the connective tissue around the joints, improving flexibility, and range of motion – mainly in the knees, pelvis, sacrum, and spine. By practicing these deep poses you will open up to the sounds moving through you, opening any blockages and releasing energy flow. This Yin Yoga Sound Bath is a very personal and unique experience. These sounds speak to each of us differently, on many different levels of our physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. It is a time of deep relaxation and expansion, where transformation and healing can occur. All body types, belief systems, and experience levels welcome.
