An afternoon to slow down and be with your body and self. Join us for yin yoga by candlelight and the healing sounds of the crystal bowls, gongs, chimes, and more. Yin yoga targets your deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. It is a slower and more meditative practice, giving you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body. In yin yoga, you will hold poses for a longer period of time, and helps you stretch and lengthen tissues while also teaching you how to breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts.
To carry us through the practice, Ashley and Gemma will play the healing vibrations of the singing bowls, gong, and other sound tools. Sound is a vibrational tool to tune the nervous system and relax the body and mind.
Cacao & Sound Ceremony - Austin Yoga Event - at Flow Yoga Westgate
Join Ashley in an evening of cellular healing and deep relaxation. We will begin with a cacao ceremony setting intentions and opening the heart space. Cacao is the whole bean from which chocolate is derived and, along with being a superfood, it opens the heart center and allows one to drop into a meditative state. After the ceremony, we will have gentle movement, pranayama, and then settle into a space of deep relaxation with a yoga nidra (yogic sleep) and guided meditation paired with the sounds of the gongs, crystal bowls, chimes, and other healing sounds. Bring a pen and a journal if you wish, or anything you need to feel supported in these practices. Blankets, mats, and bolsters will be provided.
