Refine and Align Your Practice with Claudine Beeson

Need a refresher? Has it been years since your last yoga class? Only done yoga DVDs but never attended an actual class? Needing are view on the fundamentals of yoga? Have you ever asked yourself during a class Am I doing this right?

If you answered YES to any of the above than this workshop is for you!

In this workshop style class we will deconstruct many of the more common yoga postures and from the ground up, realign the body correctly in each pose. Discover techniques to more easily transition from one pose to another in a vinyasa practice and learn to incorporate the breath into the posture.

Come with yoga poses that you might be struggling with or that you want to learn more about. We'll end as all good things should, in a nice long savasana as you transition into your weekend.

No experience necessary. All levels welcome.

Yoga and Touch Therapy with Claudine Beeson and Ritch Middleton

This class integrates the healing modalities of both yoga and bodywork techniques. While in a yoga posture, Claudine and Ritch will use assisted yoga stretches, adjustments and myofascial release to help deepen the experience within each yoga posture.

The fascial system is a web of supportive tissue that surrounds supports and integrates our muscles, organs and cells. When there is an imbalance in the system from everyday stress, injury or trauma this is felt in the body as pain, discomfort, inflexibility and stiffness. Often times it’s the shortening or tightening of the connective tissue that restricts the body from completely releasing and finding space in a yoga pose. The combination of techniques will help to assist the body in opening and relaxing. Most of the postures will be held for several minutes so that each participant can receive touch therapy from the instructors.

Please pre-register, class is capped at 7 participants.

Gong Bath with Marian Kraus

Join Marian Kraus for a healing gong and singing bowl meditation. The sonic, vibrational and mystical characteristics of his large gongs and Himalayan singing bowls will energize and quiet the mind & body simultaneously.

The Gong is one of man’s oldest therapeutic instruments, and is used in yoga, sound meditation, and vibrational therapy from the distant past to present. The Gong is an ideal tool for stress reduction, stimulation of the glandular system, and as a facilitator to break up emotional blockages.

Participants relax and soak in the sound vibration as the gongs resonate all cells of the body. The healing, meditative, spiritual and transformational experience is a psycho-acoustic gateway to raise an individuals’ vibratory frequency and to reach higher states of awareness. The instruments facilitate a change in one’s nature of being and potentially restore an intrinsic state of inner balance.

Gongs embody the universal sound and basic chordal structure of the eternal OM, and during this sound bath, you will experience gongs being played in a uniquely rhythmic, melodic and pleasing fashion.

Experience this powerful entry point for shifting and heightening your consciousness.

Marian gives a brief description and history of the gong and the intention that drives his sound immersions at each of his performances. This event is geared toward giving the participants a chance to meditate with the instruments providing an energetic and relaxing sonic back drop. Wear comfortable clothing and bring a pillow and blanket to cover up. There will be no yoga class.

Experience sound therapy healing at its finest and join the growing number of people who enjoy having very unique and remarkable experiences during Marian’s performances.
