Experience the healing benefits of opening your hips through the practice of Yin Yoga, Crystal Sound Healing, and Relaxation. Yin Yoga works on opening the intricate webbing of connective tissue that connects our muscles – particularly within the pelvis. Yin Yoga opens up these deep, dense, rarely addressed areas; increasing flexibility, range of motion and healing past injuries. Hold deep, relaxing and hip opening postures for 3-5 minutes and absorb the healing, powerful vibrations of Crystal Singing Bowls and 26” Gong. The wave of sound vibrates on a cellular level enhancing the body’s relaxation response to allow for deep releases of muscles, tension, emotions and toxins. A very relaxing class! Spontaneous healing; and profound shifts in physical, mental, emotional and
spiritual consciousness can be achieved.
