  • Sound Bath Meditation
    Experience a new kind of meditation as Becky plays Tibetan singing bowls. The sound is created to sooth jangled nerves and encourage deep relaxation. Lie on the floor, cover yourself with a blanket, and allow yourself to be emersed in a soothing sound bath.
    Studies have shown that when we are around sounds that are loud, grating and irritating, we experience a higher level of stress. When we are around sounds that are peaceful, stress can dissipate. Given the overwhelming amount of noise we may experience in a day, it is important to foster times in our life when we can come back into “tune” as with the healing sounds of traditional Tibetan singing bowls.

  • Sound Bath Meditation
    Experience a new kind of meditation as Becky plays Tibetan singing bowls. The sound is created to sooth jangled nerves and encourage deep relaxation. Lie on the floor, cover yourself with a blanket, and allow yourself to be emersed in a soothing sound bath.
    Studies have shown that when we are around sounds that are loud, grating and irritating, we experience a higher level of stress. When we are around sounds that are peaceful, stress can dissipate. Given the overwhelming amount of noise we may experience in a day, it is important to foster times in our life when we can come back into “tune” as with the healing sounds of traditional Tibetan singing bowls.
    Becky creates a Sound Bath on the first Wednesday each month. Yoga Nidra meets on all other Wednesdays. She also creates a Sound Bath on the first Sunday afternoon at 4:00 pm.
    with Becky Harblin
    In the last eighteen years I have been incorporating my studies with Peruvian Amazonian Healing and spirituality into all of my work from reflexology to painting, poetry, and now Sound Baths. It is my great hope to be a positive element in our community, either one on one, or in a group such as the sound emersion experiences.
    4:00 pm to 5:00 pm - Meets monthly, first Sunday: 10/7, 11/4, 12/2.
  • Power Sequence 26Power Sequence 26 is a hatha yoga class that is focused on strength, flexibility, and balance. Weekly repetition of the same 26 asanas (postures) in the same order builds a strong familiarity. Familiarity encourages a letting go into the breath as the body and mind dive deeper into the poses. This practice is great for those who want to be able to feel and see their progress from week to week and still have a challenge. It is accessible to all levels of yogis from beginners to practitioners of many years. Modifications and advancements will be offered for each asana. It is a physical and spiritual class that will leave you feeling balanced and relaxed. with Carlie LearyCarlie is a RYT-200 who was trained by Kennedy Wilkinson, in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. She has taught at a surf camp, and given private lessons. Carlie enjoys teaching classes in Vinyasa, Yin, and Power 26 Sequence styles of yoga. Carlie's undergraduate education focused on environmental studies and public health. She sees yoga as an integral part of her holistic view of life. Carlie gained a deeper understanding of herself and her health through  practicing yoga. She was inspired to pursue yoga instructor certification because she wanted to share the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of yoga that have enhanced her life. She hopes to make yoga accessible to all people, especially those who think they “aren’t flexible.”   7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
