Sun Salutations

Manasota Key  Beach Road

with Lata

Dates Vary, class is held once a month on a Saturday 

Yoga's Sun Salutations are among the most refined and effective movement meditations for health and well-being ever created.  Originally practiced to connect to the sun's vitality, this precise combination of forward bends, backbends and inversions awakens the breath and promotes circulation and inner balance through the flow of prana shakti — our creative life force.  

 

Practicing Sun Salutations in the morning is a wonderful way to awaken your body, to stretch and to say good morning to each of your muscles.  Sun Salutations give you a lot of power.  It’s an energetic sequence designed to make you strong, powerful, glowing and confident.

Sunset Yoga

on Englewood Beach

Manasota Key Beach Road

Gentle Yoga for Every Body
with Kris, Lata or Robert
Wednesdays * 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Sunset time varies throughout the year

Sunset is a magical time.  Practicing yoga on the beach as we watch the sun set over the ocean is a truly transformative and beautiful experience.  An evening yoga practice helps us to slow down, focus inward and gently transition from day to night.


Relax and re-new as you release the stresses of the day.  Clear your mind and move your body with a flow of yoga postures, deep breathing and gentle stretching as you soothe your soul in a moving meditation while the sun sets.

Slow Flow & Yin Yoga 

All Levels with Lata

75-Minute Class

Slow Flow Yoga is a combination of Hatha Vinyasa and Yin, and it offers the potential for deep relaxation and deliberate stillness while holding a posture a little longer and moving slowing and intentionally. 

 

This practice will encourage physical and emotional healing as well as encourage connection of mind and body for a profound sense of inner peace and overall well-being.  Holding the supported postures for a longer period of time will slowly strengthen and invite a deeper relaxation in the muscles and the deep connective tissues of the body where most of the tightness and tension is stored. 

 

You are guaranteed to cultivate a sense of spaciousness and levity!

Sound Therapy with Crystal Healing Bowls 

with Robert and Lata

Your body is in perfect health when your energy is in perfect health — it thrives in a flow of healthy energy.

 

Crystal bowl therapy, therapeutic yoga, meditative movement, guided imaginary, deep relaxation and breath heals on every level — physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

 

Through the vehicle of sound, one can transcend fear, anxiety, pain, suffering, energetic blocks and so much more. Clarity, knowledge and wisdom flow effortlessly when we are in a peaceful, composed and alert state, and our body heals itself naturally.

 

Sound vibration and tones from the crystal bowls emit a healing frequency that reverses disease and promotes soul and emotional restoration.  We may not fully understand on a rational level, but our cells understand.  When you relax and absorb the healing tones and vibrations, your body tunes in the frequency.  All of the cells in your body will start to resonate with this healing vibration.

 

The singing crystal bowls help to still the mind, allowing us to be at peace and in the awareness of our essence — in tune with Pure Consciousness!

 

The crystal bowls remind us of who we truly are, not separate from the Absolute.  As we relax and listen to the singing bowls, our entire brain illuminates allowing the right and left hemispheres to communicate together, new neural pathways develop.  Leaving you feeling at peace and content and fully aware and present.

 

The crystal bowls are singing gifts from Mother Earth herself, made of quartz crystal.  They are a modern version of healing tools that have been used since ancient times.  As the bowls are tapped and played, their quartz crystal matrix vibrates.  This sound vibration spirals outward in an ever-widening circular path that travels to infinity.  Not only are you able to hear the tones, but you can actually feel the vibrations.  They resonate with the crystalline structure of the body as well as its subtle template also known as the aura.  The bowls are tuned to our musical scale and each note correlates with different energy centers in the body.  These centers in turn correspond to different body systems, organs and endocrine glands all the way down to the cellular level.  Disease is caused by "disharmony" in the body.  By allowing the pure melodious vibrations to flow through your body, you begin to harmonize and essentially become more "in tune."  This has an overall positive effect on your being.

 

Please bring a small towel to place on your bolster, and please bring a mat.

 

Mats can be rented for $1 at the Studio.  We also sell mats at the studio $25.

 

Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to class.  We start promptly, and then the door will be locked.
