Upcoming Events

Cello Yoga & Crystal Alchemy w/Aubrey

 —  —

Limber Yoga, 7901 35TH Ave SW 2nd Floor, West Seattle, WA

The grounding sound of the cello and singing crystal bowls will allow each partitioner to dive deeper into their breath and into their body. Aubrey will guide you through a gentle yoga practice to work out places that hold tension, tightness and old stories. Maria will play her cello and the singing bowls to hold a space that is healing and supportive in letting go. Come join Aubrey and Maria in an evening full of intention. This workshop will include an hour long yoga practice and a 50min sound healing.

Limber Yoga studio can provide bolsters, blankets and some chairs. Please wear comfortable clothes and bring a notebook if you like. Some people like to use their own props during a seated meditation. Bring whatever you need for a relaxing Sound Bath experience (yoga mat, water, eye pillow). The workshop will conclude with time for integration and community. $40
