What does the word surrender mean to you?
We live in a world that doesn’t recognize the amazing power of surrender. 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 surrender that is when are able to heal and when we heal we are able to receive and let joy and abundance flow freely.
Join Instructor Yarrow Bucans – and Sound Healer Hiko Konami – as they guide you on a powerful journey to surrender. In this workshop you will experience deep energetic, emotional, and physical release through yin postures and sound healing.
Yin yoga postures are designed to open up the body by prolonged holds of deep stretching techniques – typically between 1 to 5 minutes in length. These techniques put both your body and mind in a state of deep relaxation. 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.
Put together – Yin led by Yarrow and Sound Healing by Hiko – this event will guide you into a meditative state, allowing you to surrender, release, let go, and heal.
