Sound can be a powerful tool to increase healing potential.
Whether we’re experiencing stress and our nervous system needs soothing, or we’re finding our focus fuzzy and are looking for ways to centre ourselves, sound can be a beautiful support to offer more ease to body, mind and spirit. Using highly vibrational instruments that generate beneficial wave patterns, sound healing or sound therapy is a well researched modality and has many applications. If you’d like to learn more about sound healing for self-care, personal growth, or to offer support to others, this workshop will offer information, meditative practices, and opportunities to work with the energy and vibration of a variety of sound healing instruments.
*Please pack a lunch, water and journal.
SoundHealing offers deep rest and rejuvenation through the use of highly vibratory sound healing instruments, sacred chants, toning and creative imagery. Rest deeply and potentially slip into consciousness dream states, while immersing yourself in the healing vibration that intentional sound offers. Listen, relax, and float on the waves of sound. We have zero gravity chairs to relax in for this practice.
*Please bring a blanket and pillow if you want extra comfort. If you would prefer to lie on the floor, please bring what you need to feel comfortable.
Carefully crafted music journeys are our inspiration to move freely, sweat soulfully, float, spin, whirl, wander and get grounded. Intent, like-minded movers, and the music, serve as our container for self-expression and exploration, allowing sensory space and a great soundscape to track discoveries, and release what doesn’t serve. Relaxed facilitation supports the experience. Sometimes you just gotta dance freely and let go!
Awaken fluid potential within your muscles, tendons, fascia, bones and breath. This is a gentle somatic movement practice, inspired by Continuum Movement, pioneered by Emilie Conrad. Use sound, breath, restorative motion and intention as an entry way into your own personal expression of fluidity. Explore unfurling, undulating, spiralling, suspending, lateralizing, lengthening, listening, resting and more. This can be a deeply regenerating experience. If you feel the call to slooowww dowwwn … this practice may be for you. We spend time talking, listening, titrating new ideas of movement, building coherence and practicing movement. An optional evening follow-up session allows another opportunity to practice in group.
*Please wear comfortable clothes that are easy to move in, bring one or two yoga mats and/or blankets for cushioning support. Pack a lunch, water and journal.
Come as you are, and make friends with your body. Change restricted movement patterns into expanded possibilities. Discover natural breath, move slowly and appreciate what works for you. The class generally begins with a variety of gentle warm-ups utilizing props and balls that free the fascia for further release and continues with movements focusing on an embodied anatomy theme, bringing awareness to physical alignment principles, energetic openings and metaphysical relationships. We close the class with a simple integration process, deepening into ease, laughter, and relaxation.
Participants will learn how to recognize, gathering and prepare ingredients they have foraged on site.

You are being invited to take this time for you. In an unhurried space, we will be exploring gentle movement while tuning into the present moment. Each class will be lightly held by a unique theme such as deep listening, open curiosity and inner balance. We will open our class with a group check-in followed by a short meditation, then our yoga practice and a deeper layer of meditation for 10-15 minutes. We will close our time together with an opportunity for conscious sharing. Sharing is welcomed but always optional. This class is great for those who want to slow down, connect to the breath, restore the body and relax the mind. All levels are welcomed!
Please bring a yoga mat and blanket along with any props to help support your practice.
