MY CREATIVITY IS SACRED: Sound Bath + Meditation For Creative Shakti

Shawn Moore

MY CREATIVITY IS SACRED: Sound Bath + Meditation For Creative Shakti

We are all creative beings. However, in the day-to-day grind of life, we lose confidence in our own creative energy. Sometimes we encounter blocks, fear sharing our creative output, or fail to trust in our ideas. This event is a blend of meditation, a creative intention-setting activity, and a restorative sound experience. The healing sounds from the quartz crystal bowls, gong, and other instruments will soothe your nervous system, empower you to journey within to reconnect with your own creative voice, and release creative blockages.

Dress comfortably, for this experience, please bring things that may aid in your relaxation on the floor. Pillows, blankets, cushions, yoga mats, sleep mask, etc. All creative supplies will be provided, however, feel free to bring any of your own markers, pens, color pencils, or any other items that speaks to your creative power.

Pranayama for Your Life

Catherine Allen, E-RYT 500, RPYT

We are typically more than familiar with asana (yoga pose/postures). What about the practice of pranayama? Why is pranayama important? Pranayama translates into "breath pause" or "breath control." Of all the yoga techniques and practices, it tends to be lesser known and less understood. And yet, it is one of the most crucial aspects of a yoga practice on and off the mat. Irregular and erratic breathing contribute to stress and suffering. Pranayama is the art of regulating your breath in order to keep your energy moving, dissolve layers of stress, and soothe your whole system so that you can move forward in your life with more clarity and connection. In this workshop, you will learn about the benefits of and do an array of different pranayama exercises. By the end, you will learn how to apply pranayama techniques to your everyday life and feel the difference it makes. This workshop is open to All Levels and All Abilities. Beginners through Advanced welcome.
