Yoga Nidrā and Sound Meditation

Explore the subterranean depths of your subconscious mind with Yoga Nidrā and Sound Meditation. This class, led by by Rachel Walker and Kari Ann Levine, will begin with a 30-45 minute Yoga Nidrā, or Yogic Sleep, guided meditation. With roots in both Hindu and Buddhist traditions, this practice verbally guides practitioners into a deep state of relaxation in between waking and sleeping consciousness. Arriving deep within ourselves, the class will continue its journey with a full Sound Meditation, complete with Crystal Singing Bowls, Native American Flute, Medicine Drum, Bells, Chimes, Shakers, and Sanskrit Chant. The resonant frequencies of these instruments take the mind into a transcendental state, where physical and emotional healing, as well as access to spiritual insight, is facilitated. The combined practices of Yoga Nidrā and Sound Meditation will leave practitioners feeling relaxed, reinvigorated, and with the awareness of their own vibration as an essential element of the greater whole. ॐ

Restorative Yoga and Sound Meditation 

Fully restore body, heart, and mind, while being sonically guided through non-material consciousness with Restorative Yoga and Sound Meditation. In this class, Kari Ann Levine will lead practitioners through a Restorative Yoga practice, a style using yoga props to fully support the body in long held poses, allowing the nervous system to enter a state of complete rest. Here, the body passively opens and aligns, while releasing deep layers of physical and emotional tension. Throughout the experience, Kari will guide the journey inward with a full Sound Meditation — complete with Crystal Singing Bowls, Native American Flute, Medicine Drum, Bells, Chimes, Shakers, and Sanskrit Chant. The resonant frequencies of these instruments take the mind into a transcendental state, where healing of past trauma, as well as access to spiritual insight, is facilitated. Practitioners will leave feeling relaxed, reinvigorated, and with the awareness of their own vibration as an essential element of the greater whole. ॐ

Sanskrit Mantra Practice and Chant

Lift your voice, open your heart, and come to know your own unique vibration as an essential part of the greater whole with Sanskrit Mantra Practice and Chant. In this offering, Kari Ann Levine creates a a supportive and nonjudgmental environment where chanters can explore singing as a powerful tool for self-exploration and conscious evolution. During each class, participants will dive into a selection of Sanskrit Mantras, exploring their meaning and translation, the archetypal energies they invoke, and of course, their unique vibrational frequency through chant. Chanters will leave feeling the life-enfacing benefit of group-singing, and with the experience of their own signing voice as a direct channel through which to communicate with the Divine.

Half Primary Series Aṣṭāṅga Vinyāsa

Aṣṭāṅga Vinyasa Yoga is a traditional style of yoga that rewards dedication, determination, and devotion. It is a vigorous yet safe physical practice where each practitioner is challenged according to their own physical abilities. In this “Light” variation on a traditional Aṣṭāṅga class, we will learn the foundations of this practice through a sampling of poses and as the group progresses, the instruction will evolve.
