You are invited to RELAX while immersed in sounds & vibrations of Crystal Bowls, Himalayan Singing Bowls & Koshi Bells. Relaxation is a state of being liberated from tension & stress. During deep relaxation breathing & heart rate start to slow down. Muscles start to relax & arteries expand giving rise to the feeling of warmth. Stress hormone levels start to drop while immune system is at its best when we are relaxed. Deep relaxation is a great entry point to meditation, contemplation, inner exploration, & creativity.
Please come well hydrated & eat lightly. Please dress comfortably. Yoga mats & blankets are provided, but you may bring your own if you wish.
