Fall Equinox Sound Healing & Double Gong Bath

   Friday, Dec. 21st      7:00-8:30 pm
 $15 in advance, $20 at the door   ($10 in advance for Students)


DESCRIPTION
The Winter Solstice is a reflective time of year when we prepare to move into the light, not only physically but with our intentions as well.  On the actual winter Solstice, utilize this powerful time to uplift your consciousness, balance your energy, and unlock the joy from within. This healing experience begins with gentle stretching and movement (all beginner level), breathing, and meditation to allow the nervous system to prepare for the sound vibrations. Then enjoy an extended relaxation (at least 40 minutes long) while experiencing the powerful healing sounds of two gongs, crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, chimes, and a version of guided meditation known as Yoga Nidra.

The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releases us from the torrent of thoughts our mind continuously generates and stimulates our glandular system to a higher frequency of functioning.  

The gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind. There is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind-the sound of the gong. It is the first sound in the universe, the sound that created this universe. It is the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played.” – Yogi Bhajan

Doors open at 6:30. Please arrive at least 5-10 minutes early to get set up.  Mats and blankets are available to use, but bring your own for extra comfort if you’d like.

This will allow for gentle movement, while finding length in the body like you have never felt before.

   Wednesday January 2nd      7:30-9:00 pm
 $15 in advance, $20 at the door  


DESCRIPTION
Start your new year right by taking time to get clear about what you're calling in for the year and amplify that with the power of group intention and the sound current of the gong, several crystal singing bowls and more.  This is a simpler and more streamlined version of our Yoga of Sound Event but will still include meditation, guided relaxation (yoga nidra), and nearly an hour of sound healing while lying down in a cozy shavasana.


Bellingham Yoga



DESCRIPTION
Since our Women's Kundalini Yoga Classes fall right on the holidays and will be canceled for 2 weeks, I felt that offering this workshop would be the perfect start to your new year as we connect as a circle of strong women. Join us in nurturing and exploring both our Intentions and the Divine Feminine within thru Yoga, Breath, Movement, Mudras, Chanting, Meditation, and journaling. With Ruby drawing from the tradition of kundalini yoga and offering sound healing with the gong and singing bowls, this workshop will give you an experience you’ll be able to draw from for months to come.  Tea and light snacks will be offered. If desired, please bring a journal and item for the altar.

More Info. on Sound Healing
The human body, and all things in our Universe, are designed according to harmonic principles of varying geometry, pattern, and frequency. Everything is sound, that is, everything is vibrating and has a waveform. In understanding the relationship of sound to material form- the study of cymatics- we can begin to positively affect the well-being of the body through the appropriate use of sound and vibration. Some of the key aspects of this modality include resonance theory, cosmic superimposition, five star geometry, solar harmonic/fibonacci/solfeggio scales, and ideal nervous system tuning through the perfect 5th interval (the proportion 2:3 which the human body is designed upon). Use of meditation, vocalization, mantra, and interval training are some key components of this modality.

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 ★★★★★
    Thus place really does have heart ♥! I've only taken classes with Ruby, but heard great things about the other instructors too. There's a calm, happy energy about this space, and Ruby is so open, sweet, joyful and just a fabulous instructor!! I highly recommend Inspire Studio!!
