Sound Healing Meditation Journey
with Kennedy OneSelf

Sound healing meditation is an opportunity to experience the stillness that exists beyond all thoughts.
Sound journeys baffle the mind, calm awareness, and amaze the spirit.
Simply by witnessing the pulsations of these effervescently interacting sounds, we can become a deep silence within. In this stillness is sense of ease that is the foundation of a peaceful life.
Together we will explore breath-work and the spontaneous harmony of our voices.

Psoas Release Techniques
with Tucker Shelton

The Iliopsoas is the key muscle group connecting our legs to our hips and spine. Our culture of sitting with contracted psoas muscles for long periods of time, in cars, at desks, on couches, etc can create tightness and discomfort in our bodies. An overly tight psoas can be responsible for postural imbalances and pain in our hips and low back.

Lengthening, stretching and strengthening are key actions to maintaining psoas health. Learn to recognize, release and strengthen your psoas muscle in this therapeutic and educational session combining vinyasa and yin yoga +techniques drawn from physical therapy.
