Spring Sound Immersion

With Catherine

Join us on a inward journey using sound as a guide. Tea will be served

April 27 is the festival of Floralia in Central and Eastern Europe where they pray for fruits that come from blooms.

April is when spring is in full bloom. We have planted the seeds during the new year, the flower have begun to bloom and we await the sweet fruits of our manifestations. Take this time to bring the mind and body into harmony in preparation to receive all we have been preparing for this year.

We ask that you come with an open heart and mind.

Prepare your body and mind for a 75 minute session of restorative sound energy and sharing circle with

sound practitioners Catherine De La Isla (https://www.elevationnationyoga.com)

“Sound healing is a powerful healing method that uses vibration to re-tune the body/mind/spirit by balancing the flow of energy through the chakras and meridians, bringing about deep relaxation, energizing the physical body and clearing the emotional body so that a renewed sense of one’s vitality, clarity, grace and joy can be accessed.”

This session will use a variety of tools including:

gong, singing bowls, tuning forks, energy chimes, bells, shruti box and

vocal toning.

April Newsletter

Breathing is to the mind what the asana (physical postures) is to the body and Osho beautifully captures the idea of pranayama. Pranayama, the fourth of the eight limbs of our yoga practice, stands on it’s own because of it’s power. Prana, translates as “life force,” it is the sum total of all the manifest energy of the universe, all the forces and energy within us and around us, including electricity, light, magnetism and heat. Whatever has life is a manifestation of prana. When prana is controlled or regulated by our external breath it becomes pranayama. Breath is gross prana, when we become aware and control our breathing we can begin to control the subtle life force within us. This life force produces thoughts, moves the mind and sets the mind in motion. Prana helps to operate the mind, so once we begin to control prana we can begin to control our mind. As Osho tells us- “once we change our way of breathing, we change our way of thinking.’ Breathing is so simple that we take it for granted, ignoring it’s power over the mind, body and spirit. The more awareness we bring to the breath, the more we begin to recognize the turbulence of our minds. From there we can begin to unravel our inner knots and recognize the ever-present eternal stillness that lies within. Once we begin to break-down old, unhelpful patterns and become aware of that stillness then our state-of-mind transforms, our perceptions clear, our relationships change and we are able to accomplish, communicate and love! With your next breathe, don’t take it for granted, you are breathing in prana, you are breathing in life force! We invite you to take your inhales slowly and steadily and release your exhales slowly as we draw the beginning of the holiday season in.
We wish you and your family health and peace.
We hope to see you soon on your mat!
Om shanti, Living Yoga Staff
