Summer Solstice Mala and International Yoga Day

Wednesday, June 21, 7:30pm-@10pm

A Yoga Mala is a practice of 108 sun salutations traditionally done at the changing of the seasons. A Yoga Mala is a moving meditation, an opportunity to let go of anything that no longer serves you and to set new intentions to guide you in the season coming.
A strong, powerful flow practice, christie will lead you from the ground up, offering you modifications to support you in your flow.
The intention is to meditate on Peace and Love, meditating on our Mother Earth and opening to the amazing possibilities that await us this spring and summer. A space will be provided for those wishing to take part in the practice as seated meditation practitioners and a special mantra will be offered for reflection and practice.
Refreshments served afterward to revitalize your system and get you ready to move back into the outside world.

Sunday Sound Healing Meditation

Sunday, July 30, 2017, 7:30-9pm

with Ann Robillard and Emmy Shanti

(*New time for summer)

This relaxing and restorative sound healing journey combines restorative yoga postures and guided meditation for relaxing and healing the body, using the Tibetan singing bowls placed on the body and around the room.

This month we are weaving in the magical sounds of the harmonium, crystal bowl, and the angelic voice of Emmy Shanti !

Though we have quite a few blankets and bolsters, if you’d like to be extra comfy, please bring an extra pillow, blanket and anything that makes you feel cozy.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Sound (including Tibetan singing bowls) can remedy imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder….. stress hormones decrease, allowing the immune system to function more efficiently, lowering blood pressure and releasing natural opiates that act as internal painkillers and healing agents. ~ Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine, the Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in New York

With vibrations reaching to your very core, tissues, organs and individual cells receive a deeply relaxing massage. Sound therapy promotes healing, happiness, mental clarity & improved sleep while reducing stress, pain, anxiety & depression
~ The body, mind & spirit in harmony

Please email the studio at thetwistedfish@gmail.com to RESERVE your space. You may pay IN STUDIO by cash, cheque or any major credit card OR PayPal option available below.
