Yin Yoga, Sound Bath Vibrations and a Moldavite Crystal Meditation
Monday, September 23rd 7:30pm - 9:15pm
Ancient cultures around the world honored the cycle of the seasons, placing a key emphasis on events such as equinoxes. Monday, September 23rd marks the Autumnal Equinox in which the tilt of the earth in its rotational orbit will be in straight alignment with the sun. It is during this time that we experience an equal balance of day and night. With each passing equinox, we are invited to transcend illusions and step more into our authentic truth of balanced BEing. In the Yogic tradition, “the Equinox is seen as a day when one has the best possibilities of transcending the limitations and compulsions of one’s physical longings”. ~Sadhguru
Join Yoga Instructor, Alicia Collier and Intuitive Healer, Joseph Adams for an evening of Yin Yoga, Sound Bath Vibrations and a Moldavite Crystal Group Meditation Experience.
Yin Yoga is a practice where poses are held for a long period of time in a relaxed manner with or without the use of props. This practice of stillness coupled with the verbal guidance of Alicia will assist in directing your awareness into the subtle energy centers of the body, where you may release tension and find balance.
Joseph Adams will deepen your experience during your yoga practice by using a wide range of sound frequencies. You will be bathed in the sound vibrations of crystal bowls, wind gongs, and other sacred instruments. These vibrations may assist you to soothe the mind, further balance your energy and connect you to your highest path forward for this new fall season.
During this workshop you will have an amazing opportunity to learn about and experience a powerful crystal called Moldavite. This crystal came into existence almost 15 million years ago in a meteorite impact in the Czech Republic. It has the power to assist you in awakening your dormant potential and draw out unwanted negative emotions. We will use this crystal during a group meditation experience and also during savasana.
In a world of discord and chaos, our greatest ally is our ability to be compassionately present with ourselves and those around us. Rooted in yogic philosophy, The Art of Holding Space workshop seeks to cultivate greater self awareness and empower intentional connections.
In a comfortable space, we will practice the art of holding space in gentle and inspiring ways. The workshop includes a short talk and discussion guided by Alicia Collier, yoga (asana) practice, and group/partner activities.
Our conversations will focus on such topics as:
What holding space really means for ourselves and others
Step-by-step guidance on “how” to hold space
Recognizing and overcoming blockages
How to let go of the outcome and practice healthy detachment
How to hold space in difficult contexts, when complex emotions and conflict may be present
What’s the opposite of holding space
