Yoga Nidra for Autumn with Crystal Bowl Sound Bath  (Age 18+)

 Friday September 20 from 7:30pm – 9:00pm for $15    6 spots available

Discover an amazing way to chill out! The entire workshop is spent lying comfortably on a padded mat while being led through a guided relaxation for body, mind and spirit. You will intuitively create a Sankalpa, an intention formed by the heart and mind, to harness your will towards a personal goal. Michelle will create a restful atmosphere with the sounds of crystal bowls. The result is an amazing sense of calm, and a reduction of mental stress and physical tension. An absolutely delightful experience for self-care.
