SACRED SONG & GONG MEDITATION

with Todd Glacy

 

Satsang is a Sanskrit word that means “gathering together for the Truth”. Whenever something increases our experience of the Truth, it opens our heart and quiets our mind. Singing and meditating together are practices which can increase our experience of Truth. 

 

Join Todd Glacy on a musical journey to the heart of stillness through the singing and chanting of Sacred Songs followed by a gentle gong meditation to help quiet our mind and lead us back to the place of pure awareness where we can “tune in” to the Truth within us all.

In this Gentle Flow Yoga class we will gain mind/body awareness in a non competitive environment. Uniting breath (pranayama) with movement (asana), we will work toward gaining lung capacity, functional strength, range of motion in the joints, balance, flexibility, and relaxation. Each class begins with a grounding exercise. From the grounding exercise, we’ll transition into a warm up, a gentle work phase, a standing balance phase, and finally into a cool down with deep stretching/breathing. The most challenging part of your practice will be getting here, but make the time for yourself and discover the physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits of a regular yoga practice.

Brain Body Balance is a class designed to integrate and fine tune the brain/muscle connection or neuromuscular efficiency. The better we are able to have these connections working optimally, the less chance we have of injury. The class is designed around the use of a 1/2 foam roll that I will provide in class. Learn how to better sense limb position and body alignment along with strengthening the core and fine tuning your balance. Please wear comfortable clothes and bring a mat for this hour long mind body connecting and strengthening class.

Earth Flow is a unique class with sequencing based off of the Lunar Phase and Zodiac position for that day. Each Asana has an associated Element. Each Zodiac represents a different element. In pairing the two, you get a very lovely Flow-like class suitable for all levels. If you’re looking to become grounded and stabilized, Earth Flow is just the class for you! Earth Flowers can expect some breath work, connecting in with the mind, body and earth, a warm up phase, gentle work phase and a cooling down phase. Sequencing changes each week as the moon gradually makes its way around the 12 houses of the Zodiac. Jess looks forward to flowing with you through the Earth’s elements, seasons and energies!

In this Detox Yoga class we’ll practice a gentle yet vigorous asana sequence, focusing on cleansing the body of daily toxins.
