Christina Lancione is going to Circus School in Italy !
But before she leaves she is going to help us take our handstand practice to the next level:
working towards straight lines, building strength, learning conditioning techniques that will ensure progression in your practice, and an opportunity to spot your fellow yogis in this 2 hour workshop
Come relax and bathe in the beautiful sounds of the crystal singing bowls. Singing
bowls can slow down and entrain our brain waves to alpha or theta, while opening,
clearing and balancing our chakras, returning the body back to its normal resonance.
A Sound Bath is a deeply relaxing, meditative and therapeutic experience that can
enhance well-being, reduce stress and tension and balance the autonomic nervous
system to promote deep healing. Participants lie down in savasana on a yoga mat with
a pillow and blanket and are guided in mindfulness meditation exercises and bathed in
the beautiful sounds and healing vibrations that resonate from various therapeutic drone
instruments. Instruments include Quartz crystal and Himalayan singing bowls, Bio-
Sonic tuning forks, rattles, chimes, tank drum, voice and shruti box.
Participants often leave feeling relaxed, restored and re-balanced.
Benefits of a Sound Bath Include:
* Deep states of relaxation and meditation
* Reduced stress, pain and anxiety
* Enhanced mood
* Improved sleep
* Enhanced energy levels
* Increased focus

For Restorative yoga, the intention is to relax as far as possible into the postures, using as little physical effort as possible. The mind focuses on the breath in order to cultivate mindfulness and release tension from the body.
This workshop is relaxing and slow paced, with a whole sequence using as few as five or six postures which are held for long periods of time. Props are also used in order to allow the body to be in the most comfortable, supported position possible. Including bolsters, blankets, blocks and belts. Gentle music is played, and the practice is combined with guided meditation.
Restorative yoga stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which slows the heart rate, regulates the blood pressure and relaxes the body. As such, Restorative yoga is considered particularly beneficial for those suffering from anxiety, insomnia or headaches, as well as other stress-related conditions.
Restorative yoga is believed to boost the immune system and accelerate the body’s natural healing process.
