Move and Soothe – Yoga and Live Music
August 6 @ 9:00 am - 10:45 am
Experience the healing power of yoga, live music, and deep rest.
The morning will consist of gentle yoga, movement, restorative postures, breathing practices, meditation and chanting, all encompassed with live guitar with Richard Turner and Ginny Clarke.
Music and yoga are both such healing modalities. No doubt at some stage you’ve turned on the radio and an old song is playing which automatically evokes feelings and memories of joy or love or simply happy times. The vibration of music can soothe the mind and the nervous system, and accompanied with the power of yoga, can help to release old habitual tension and return us to the innate state of peace.
Expect to move in unison as the power of music weaves through the room and through our hearts, bringing us back home to the stillness and love living within.
Ginny Clarke is a devoted, senior yoga teacher and yoga therapist and co-owner of Living Peace Yoga. She has been teaching yoga since 2002 and her passion is to help people know their bodies intimately and work towards healing mind, body and spirit through the vast array of techniques and wisdom which yoga offers. She has been in a variety of kirtan bands since 2008 and is honoured to share this devotional practice which uplifts and connects us back to our divine nature.
Richard Turner is a musician who has devoted his life to exploring the transformative power of music and meditation.
