Sound Bath: As you relax in a chair of lay on the floor, the waves of sound produced by Himalayan sing bowls and other instruments can calm the nervous system, mind, and body. It also helps to relieve stress, insomnia, anxiety, chronic pain and depression.
Still: As we move into winter, slow down and quiet yourself in community with others. Join Lori for a 20 minute silent sitting meditation to round out your evening yoga practice or simply still your mind before bedtime. People have been coming together to sit in groups for years, from Gandhi's non-violent movement against discrimination, to the diverse community meditations and prayers for peace after 9-11 that continue annually, to flash mob meditations, where participation in non-action draws attention to causes globally. The act of being with one another contemplatively can be deeply healing. There will be no set intention, goal, or class instruction. We will simply begin with a poem promptly at 8:20 and sit for a period of 20 minutes. Drop-ins welcome, no experience required, bolsters, blankets, chairs and yoga mats are available for sitting. Lori will be available for any questions outside of the studio space before class, however in the studio we will preserve sacred silence before and after our sit.
Cost: Free Will dana (donation) for the cost of studio space.
Instructor: Lori Mathiowetz
