Robin has paired up with Terra Brockett of Awaken Vibrational Sound Therapy to bring you a delicious merger of Restorative Yoga, and the live sound of Himalayan Singing Bowls. The low frequency vibration penetrates the body on a cellular level, and can offer a sense of calm, deep relaxation, and balance.
The sounds of each bowl are attuned to different energy centres, or chakras in the body, to support rest and connection to the emotional, energetic and spiritual bodies. Let the sound wash over you whilst in cozy restorative poses.
Terra is the owner of Awaken, and offers sound therapy and mediation classes with her expertise, and team of beautiful Himalayan Singing bowls. www.AwakenSoundTherapy.com

The Sanskrit word chakra refers to a number of energetic centres that exist in the body, with each center corresponding to a different level of power and consciousness and having unique properties. The chakra system is ancient, and its roots run deeply throughout yoga’s oral and written traditions. In this 2 hour workshop, join Nikki and Tori as they work to marry eastern and western philosophies to give you a greater understanding of how movement and release can impart a deep sense of both physical and energetic awareness and well-being. This workshop is a combination of slow and deliberate movement, Myofascial release, and lecture. Props will be provided, but if you’d like to bring your own, 2 tennis balls and block are requested.
In this class style workshop, we will look at some of the different types of meditation, their purposes and benefits, and how we can apply this, in action, to build up to the moving meditation of Asana through looped Sun Salutations (for a total of 9), preparing us to end the practice in a seated meditation.
No experience is necessary, and modifications are available for the Sun Salutations.
