at sunwater spa

with Gurmukh, Eric Klema

 

Saturday, April 14 from 11am to 1pm

 

$30 Advance Tickets, $35 Day of Event

 

A two-hour exploration of the wonders of kundalini yoga. Come learn the basics of breath, movement, mantra, and meditation in a relaxed, beginner-friendly environment with live music.

 

Kundalini Yoga utilizes breathwork (pranayam), movement, and mantra to wake up dormant energy in the body and circulate it through the body-mind system. As this happens it has amazing effects; including balancing and strengthening the major systems of the body (glandular, nervous system, and immune system), increased energy and vitality, quieting and focusing the mind, opening the heart, and so much more.

Gong Bath Ceremony

at SunWater Spa

with Megan and Marshall

 

Saturday, April 21st from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm

 

$30 per person

 

Returning to SunWater Spa after their initial sold-out offering, Marshall and Megan
incorporate Yoga Nidra, 17th and 18th-century Himalayan singing bowls, gemstone
crystal bowls, planetary tuning forks, and two healing Planet Gongs tuned to the Sun
and Saturn during their Shamanic Gong Bath Ceremony.

 

A cosmic ether is created through the chorus of the bowls and Planet Gongs as
vibrations wrap around and through you. This intense sound healing can help
reduce stress, alter consciousness, and create a deep sense of peace and well-being
for better health. Tuning Forks are used for individual experiences and provide a
unique enhancement to the power of the gongs. You are invited to simply lie down,
relax, and be open to the journey!

 

The end of our Gong Bath offers terrestrial, tribal, and grounding drums, rattles,
flute playing, and chanting to guide you back to your body. Awareness of the breath
and heartbeat reconnect you to your physical self after which point, lightly
stretching out is highly encouraged (and truly feels amazing).

 

This can be a very loud and intense experience. Attendees are encouraged to bring a
yoga mat or something comfortable to lay on, blankets, pillows, eye masks, and
water. Water is an energy conduit and hydration is a key component of the sound
healing.
