Start the weekend off with a gift to yourself, an evening of slow flowing and restorative yoga with the beautiful and healing sounds of crystal bowls, Koshi chimes, hand pan drum, and gongs. Maria will lead you through breathwork, gentle and restorative yoga, mudras, chanting, and meditation that will bring about a sense of peace, while Sharon immerses the room with rich and vibrational sounds that will touch your soul and lift your spirits. An extended savasana with gongs is part of the experience (if you have never been bathed in the sound of a gong, you do not want to miss this opportunity!). You will leave feeling relaxed, restored, and ready for the holidays.
