Explore the relaxing effects of sound with the gong, singing bowls and chimes guided by Samantha Grodecki. As the gong and singing bowls are sounded, the powerful rhythmic vibrations resonate throughout the body. Sound massages the mind and opens us up to explore the effects within and that is where the journey begins. Please join us for this meditative journey with sound. We will begin with centering with our breath followed by soft movements of seated yoga stretches then rest into the sound. Dress comfortably; feel free to bring your own yoga mat, blanket, eye pillow…whatever you would like to be as comfortable as possible. Meditation cushions, blankets and mats will be provided in limited quantity.
