Sound Bath

Sound Bath
Date: TBA
Time: TBA
Price: $45 | $25/Member

A Sound Bath is exactly what it’s name implies–sound that envelopes and bathes you.  It is a very unique and healing experience.
Researchers have found that sound waves can reduce blood pressure as well as enhance sleep and memory. Binaural beats, tones played simultaneously that are close in pitch but not identical, can be found in a sound bath session. Studies show these sounds can reduce anxiety and enhance mood states.
Come with an open mind and open heart and be ready to be transformed.

Restorative Workshop

Restorative Yoga

Date: Saturday, November 5, 2022
Time: 12-3:00pm
Price: $90 | $60/member

Immerse yourself in deep relaxation states for managing chronic pain, anxiety, and insomnia.
According to several studies, training the body and the muscles to truly relax can significantly reduce pain, mobility issues, anxiety, and insomnia. However, true relaxation is elusive in today’s norm of overworking, over-striving, and overachieving. Even as we sleep, we carry the tension from our days into the night, resulting in poor, unrestful sleep. In this workshop, we will explore the sensations of truly and consciously releasing chronically tense muscles, layer by layer, through restorative yoga and yoga nidra to resolve pain and stabilize your energy. Learn how to tap into your inner sources of rejuvenation so that you can continue to maintain vitality, joy, and purpose in your body and spirit.

Intro to Ayurveda

Intro to Ayurveda

Time: 11:30am-4:30pm
Price: $199 | $150/member

Ayurveda originated in India about 5000 years ago, the same time as yoga, and is considered to be the oldest form of healthcare. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word which means “science of life.”

When yoga and Ayurveda are employed together they create balance in the mind, body and spirit. Yoga does this through the physical and meditative practice; Ayurveda does this by taking into consideration external forces that one cannot control: changes in seasons, aging, changes in the universe, etc.

In this workshop you will learn:
*what Ayurveda is
*how to use Ayurvedic principles in your everyday life
*the 3 Doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha)
*changes throughout the day; changes in seasons
*reactions to food
*causes of disease
*creating balance in the body

*This is a pre-requisite for all Ayurveda Workshops at blue door.

All workshops/trainings are held at the studio.
