Seven Vibrations Sound Healing
with Mihika Paranjpe
Friday, April 9th  7:00pm-8:15pm

7 Vibrations is a relaxation therapy practice that uses vibrations of sound and music to heal anyone experiencing anxiety, stress, emotional or physical imbalance or seeking to achieve a state of equilibrium.
 

This ancient healing technique uses tonal frequencies to bring the body into a state of vibrational balance and harmony. Vibrational Sound Therapy (VST) is an alternative healing method and meditative practice. It is a noninvasive relaxation therapy which has profound effects on the body and mind.

During the session, the Zen therapeutic singing bowls are activated gently to give soothing sound which has a calming and peaceful effect, inducing a deep relaxation and meditative state. The sound and vibrations directly affect the body on the cellular level. It is also found that this practice can be an effective treatment for chronic pain and injury recovery.  $25

Mihika was born into a musical family in India, and has always been interested in how music affects our lives. She developed 7 Vibrations as a therapeutic tool for healing stress, anxiety and physical injury with sound frequencies that balance the chakras.

Mihika offers private sound healing sessions and also virtual sessions.

Yin Yoga: Ready to Slow Down?
with Shannon Durham
Sunday, April 11th  5:00pm-7:00pm

Are you ready to slow down?

Join Shannon Durham and explore the calmer side of yoga practice. Slow it down, become aware of your innate ability to create a sense of calm, and reconnect with your mind and body through Yin yoga. The poses are held for 3-5 minutes and target deep connective tissues like fascia, ligaments, joints and bones. It’s slow and meditative, to give you space to turn inward and observe the mind and physical sensations of the body and to stretch and lengthen rarely-used tissues.  $40
