Sound Therapy

Sunday March 29th | 7:30-9pm
$60 each or $100/couple
w/ Nadia Ishmail owner of Stone & Shadow
Limited to 15 people.
 
 
Sound Therapy is a harmonizing experience, recommended for many physical and emotional ailments. Using a variety of tools such as Crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, Tuning Forks, Frequencies, Guided Meditation and Reiki energy, these instruments assist in restoring balance to the body’s energy fields. During a Sound Therapy Session, the body will release endorphins and serotonins, allowing a jump start to restoring your entire system. Every session may be different depending on your intentions and needs.
 
What you can expect from a Stone and Shadow Sound Therapy Session: We begin with opening a safe healing space to allow for energetic and spiritual healing to take place. Connecting with the energy in the room, we begin with guided breathing to relax and prepare ourselves to receive all necessary messages for our higher good. We begin with a complete sound bath using Crystal Singing Bowls and may include instruments such as Drums, Gongs and Bells/Tingshas. Nadia will then use tuning forks, Tibetan Bowls and Hand Crystal Singing bowls over the body for individual targeted healing. The session concludes with a softer sound bath and guided breathing to ground and reconnect you with the present moment.
 
We recommend bringing a notepad and pen to capture any messages that come through during or after your session!

 

Kids Aerial Yoga Classes for Age 6-12

We’re offering these classes now EVERY Saturday and Sunday, so plan to get on your mat! Kids yoga classes are offered at the same time as the adult H Yoga Classes! Child drop-off starts 15 minutes before and continues 15 minutes after class to give you time to get yourself ready. This allows you to do yoga while your children do yoga at the same time in their own separate class.

These classes run WEEKLY

Sunday FOR AGES 6-12 from 4:30-5:30pm

You must register for this class in advance online. No drop-ins.

48 hours notice is required for cancellations due to the limited amount of space in each class.

Only 7 hammocks + space for 7 kids.

A fun fusion of yoga postures done in circus silks, called yoga hammocks. The beautiful silks hang low to the ground in a hammock style so there is easy access to the floor. The fabric acts as a safe prop to assist the body in opening and relaxing while your weight is completely supported by the fabric in a zero-gravity situation. The fabric can be opened wide to lie inside or bunched together to sit, stand or support in stretching. Classes vary from active to more relaxed. There are numerous zero-gravity benefits including decompression, improved circulation, skeletal and nervous system health as well as joint mobility. Plus kids LOVE playing in the silks!

To Chris, yoga is not something to “excel” at but rather about cultivating contentment, compassion, mindfulness, self acceptance and bringing awareness into the body.
