Rejuvenate with a Healing Gong Sound Meditation

Saturday, October 7, 4:00–5:30pm

Romy Valdez

 

There are few instruments like the Gong that can heal us through its purification properties of sound vibrations. In this energy field, the beginnings of removing all blocks can occur allowing you to reorganize and rebalance. This workshop will include transformational methods that include yoga and breathwork to prepare us for the vibrational healing energy of the Gong.

Some benefits of gong meditation include:

  • Conducive to healing and transformation
  • Induces a state of meditation by calming the mind
  • Reduces the internal dialogue
  • Creates a state of relaxation and release of tension
  • Stimulates the circulatory and glandular systems
  • Rebalances the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies
  • Helps clear energetic and emotional blockages
  • Regenerates the parasympathetic nervous system
  • Awakens higher states of consciousness
  • Bathes you in a cascade of healing sound — claims to shift the brain from Beta (waking state) to Theta or Delta (meditation) through the vibrations of the instrument.

Many people report receiving a deep sense of tranquility, reduced stress and improved sleep after a Gong Sound Meditation.

 

Pricing: $30 early bird. $35 at the door.

Pat Lebau

 

Are your feet in pain? That stabbing pain near the heel when you get up in the morning that lingers through the day? You stretch and work out but nothing seems to help. What to do? Welcome to Integrated Positional Technique (IPT). Learn to release pain by relaxing - slackening - over stretched muscles. It's a different approach. And it works. 

Pat Lebau, Kripalu yoga teacher since 2008, brings her own personal PF story and success helping others to this workshop on IPT for foot pain. You will learn simple, non standard positions to help alleviate pain of running, walking and standing. You will learn about daily activities that can lead to pain and simple, effective techniques to use at home a few times a day for a few minutes at a time to relieve the pain and keep it away while still enjoying daily activities like running, walking and working out.

Pricing: $35 early bird ($40 walk-in)
