Class begins by creating Sacred Space using breathwork, movement, and guided Imagery to energize your body and brain with Kwan Yin Qigong - a dance form taught by Master Teacher Masahiro Ouichi (Tao Zen) that incorporates breathwork (internal) with movements (external) to manipulate the flow of life force energy in and around us for unlimited health benefits. Then move deeper into the practice of subtle energy using the power of your own natural voice. Vocal toning practice uses sound frequencies to help us pinpoint the sonic “nutrients” we are missing and replenish them. This practice uses Sound "seed" syllables from various sacred world esoteric traditions to help raise our overall energetic vibration. Energize yourself!

New Moon Planetary Gong Bath and Harmonic Attunements

 Carmen Cicotti and Loren Schaumberg
 Fri, April 5th   7:00-9:00 pm
 $25 in advance, $30 at the door




DESCRIPTION

We’re blessed to have sound healer Carmen Cicotti visiting from Lopez Island, accompanied by Loren Schaumberg. They will be playing four planetary gongs throughout the evening- Earth Year, New Moon, Neptune, and Venus- as well as providing supportive soundscape with other sacred instruments. They will be working with the themes of balance, foundation, and grounded perspective in the spheres of love and money. You’ll have the opportunity to set intentions with the new moon to find clarity in how you approach your relationships and your sense of comfort.  

During the session you​ will be led in a guided relaxation meditation with the harmonies​ of Tibetan Singing Bowls, then into deep rest as the Gongs fill the space. This is a profoundly transformative and powerful experience – be prepared to have your mind and heart expand in glorious directions!

Gong sounds build a safe environment for the mind to relax and let go. Deep states of meditation become automatic. The gong's vibrations gently massage participants on a cellular level. The frequencies generated allow the body to release, reset, and re-align to a balanced state, affecting the physical, mental, emotional, and energetic bodies.

We recommend wearing comfortable clothes. Yoga mats and blankets will be available, but you may also want to bring a camping mat, eye pillow, or personal pillow to maximize your comfort. You are also invited to bring a small offering to place at the altar that will be in the room. Your offering can be anything: something to add beauty to the room; something you want to honor; energy you want to invite in, or let go.

Bellingham Yoga



DESCRIPTION
Backbends can feel both vulnerable and empowering because they require an opening of our individual energy – our hearts, and trust in universal energy – our backs. They lead to greater feelings of openness, connection and empathy, while giving us a shift in perspective. They improve posture and lung capacity, while counteracting the everyday slouch we find ourselves in when sitting and driving.

During this 3 hour workshop we will explore the different energies of the front and back heart through heart centered visualization, breath-work, mudra and intention, and gentle opening and warming of the body. We will move from simple to complex, progressing into deeper and more advanced backbends. Finally winding down with counterbalancing postures to relax and release the effort and finish with a guided, heart-centered meditation in Savasana.

You will leave feeling empowered and refreshed, with tools to connect to and open the heart, to build strength and to deepen your back-bending practice.

This workshop is for All Levels (3 CE hours) *minimum of 4 participants required

Inspire Studio Reviews

  • Julia Moss ★★★★★
    This historical one room yoga studio is a beautiful place for a class. Instructors range in style, class time, and difficulty but owner Ruby Koa does a beautiful job filling her space with love. Drop in for a sweat at the noon power hour on Tuesday or Thursday, start your weekend off right with a free meditation class Friday afternoon or ever try the new aerial yoga class offered with silks. Inspire is an incredible place to find community and spirit.

  • Ali Michelin ★★★★★
