Let me be clear: I am the least Zen person in the world. I don’t meditate (despite having multiple meditation apps on my phone). When I do find myself in a yoga class, I am never really fully in the moment. Deep breathing. Sitting quietly. Draining my brain of all thoughts. I. Just. can’t. My mind is in a constant state of frenzy—which is why I thought it might be worth trying the mindful meditation practice known as sound bath therapy.

Never heard of it? A sound bath involves letting sonic waves (or vibrations) produced by Tibetan singing bowls wash over you in an effort to activate your mind, body and spirit—and melt away pent-up stress. “[Sound baths] are the highway to entering a meditative state of consciousness,” explains Abigail DeVine, a yoga instructor and massage therapist who is proficient in vibrational sound and energy work. “The sound acts like a beacon, calming the noise of our mind toward relaxation, peace, and tranquility.”

Winter Solstice Sound Bath

Winter Solstice Sound Bath
Thursday, December 21st
182 5th Avenue
7:30pm to 8:45pm
$40 in advance // $45 at the door

Join Bode NYC and Abigail Karina DeVine for an enchanting winter evening designed to help you to clear space for the new year. As we settle into winter, we have a beautiful opportunity to delve deeper within so that we may release what no longer serves us. On this year’s Winter Solstice we are excited to invite you to a sound bath facilitated by Abigail that will assist you to do just that.

Deep healing work comes through music and sound. Through the use of Tibetan sound healing sound baths move the brain into deeper Alpha and Theta brain wave frequencies, inducing meditative and peaceful states that allow for clarity of mind and intuition. A few benefits of sound healing are: Improved sleep; deep sense of tranquility; relieves stress, anxiety, depression and emotional pain.

We live in a world that doesn’t recognize the amazing power of stillness to heal. As a result, we are anxiety ridden, unbalanced, and stressed out. In this fast paced society, our central nervous systems are on constant overdrive, which can create mental, emotional and physical illness. We run too fast, too hard and for too long creating stress, anxiety and tension in our minds and bodies. When we take the time to gift ourselves with moments of stillness that is when are able to heal and when we heal we are able to receive and let joy and abundance flow freely.

Barkan Hot Vinyasa 101

 

IMG_9571

Come and try and experience for yourself this unique blend of traditional hatha yoga postures. If you have never done Vinyasa yoga before you will be instructed on how to modify the Vinyasa flow until you build enough upper body strength to do the flow with correct alignment. You will also be surprised how many other poses you will recognize with possibly a slight variation. Your Bikram practice will have prepared you very well to this more challenging class.

Structure of Class

Vinyasa poses are usually linked together with Sun Salutations, which include a signature four posture flow consisting of plank, chaturanga, upward facing dog and downward facing dog (see video below). Class will begin with a short 5-minute clinic to familiarize students with this four posture flow and highlight proper alignment points. The class will move next into a set of classic pranayama breathing exercises to warm up the body and open the lungs.  Students will then go through a 35-minute flow consisting of 5 Sun Salutations, where they will get a chance to practice the signature four posture flow at least 10 times.

Following the 5 Sun Salutations, the class progresses to 10 minutes of standing/balancing postures, not unlike those in the Bikram Method, but which are unique to the Barkan Method and, importantly, flow from one to the next. The class concludes with 10 minutes on the floor, again with the postures transitioning smoothly from one to the next.
