Gentle Yoga and Moving Meditation to Find Your Center

What does it mean to be centered? Being centered is a reference point, a place of balance, of calm and peace. A place to return to when life, thoughts, emotions, situations and circumstances sweep you away.

The practices of yoga and meditation allow us to reconnect to our center, this reference point within.

In this workshop, we will explore how to find your center through yoga and meditation. By slowing down, connecting to your breath and sensing your body through gentle yoga and a moving meditation, you will access the ever present still point within.

The workshop will close with a guided centering meditation lying down in a supported relaxation pose.

Join us for these powerful practices to find your center and experience balance, peace and calm.

Gentle Yoga and Gong Bath

In this special class offering, you will be guided through a gentle yoga sequence designed to clarify the mind and open the heart. When we have a clear mind and an open heart we live life with a sense of purpose and joy.

The practice will close lying down in a supported relaxation pose while Larry Weinberg plays the powerfully healing gongs.

The gong is the oldest instrument in the world and all the sounds of creation are contained within it. The gongs bring us from a place of thinking and doing to a place of feeling and being. The vibration of the gong has the power to bring about calm and healing. When you calm the mind, you still your thoughts and attune to your true nature.
